Give or take... it all comes out even on lap times.
well they say that SD cars has more speed than BD cars, anybody care to comment on it? Personally for me I like BD's they are much more quieter , I have had a couple ( pro4 & TC4) but sold them , one thing for sure BD's are alot smoother.

A belt drive will be capable of carrying far more power through a turn than a shaft drive, but, if power is scarse (stock motor) then a shaft will accelerate better. Once you start putting power in a shafty, under acceleration, the chassis wants to twist (remember, for every reaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction), so with a shaft drive, the car wants to twist with a belt drive, it makes the rear squat, putting more power and more stability through the chassis.

Default TA-05 Setup

I have a question I went to Tamiya yesterday to buy some 415 suspension
mounts and here's what they recommended me to get

Tamiya TRF415 Aluminum suspension blocks D Bridge for front inner
part#51064

Tamiya TRF415 Aluminum suspension blocks A front outer
part#51065
and for the rear

Tamiya TRF415 Suspension Mount (XA) for inner
part#53808
Tamiya TRF415 Suspension Mount (XC)for outer
part#53810

And this for use with the stock arms..
Also can someone explain the difference in letters like XA, XC etc. thanks
And is mostly everyone running the 4mm clamp type wheel hub?

there are several blocks for the 415/TA05..... from NARROWEST to WIDEST

XD XC XB XA 1X 1A 1B 1C 1D

1A and 1D bridge blocks

different combinations will yield different toe-in and toe-out settings. with 3mm spacers any of the non-bridge blocks above can be flipped upside down and used as bridge blocks for the belts to pass underneath.

Will the P-DUB bumper for the 415 fit the TA05 without modification?

Exclamation PLEASE HELP A ROOKIE OUT!

Okay, maybe I sould explain my situation a little better! I recently (2 weeks ago) bought and built a TA05. I've added TRF shocks, TA05 front and rear damper stays and a stabilizer kit. Apart from these, my car is set up according to the manual!

My issue- I'm due to compete in my second race meeting (Tamiya Cup) after my first was dismal to say the least. Didn't finish either of my 2 qualifiers and came second last in the main race.

The track has two large straights which I'd like to capitalize on. At the end of both straights are two sharp corners and the rest of the track is made up of fast, long corners.

I plan to race superstock with either a Tamiya TZ or RZ motor. If anyone has a similar type car and setup to mine, I would REALLY appreciate any advise in terms of general setup, shock setup, stabilizers or anything else! I am desparate to compete properly!

The closest wheel hub size to the kit original parts are 5mm. Depending on your setup, you might even be able to use 6mm. If you use the 4mm, you will probably have to cut away part of the ball cup on the front turnbuckles which will rub against the inside of your wheels.

You are probably better off using the 5mm parts.

Default TA-05 Setup

Thanks Mobile I already bought some 4mm but I guess I'll measure the original plastic one in the kit, because I notice with 4mm the wheel goes in really close and there's alot of thread left after I tighten the wheel down shown here is there some shims I can use to push the wheel out more or is
it just those Tamiya that fit like that...

Damn good eye you have there!!!

Yes, those are Kyosho shocks mounted up with the original 'floating piston' system still installed. I figured they'd worked well in the past, why not give them new life....and save about $60 on new alloy shocks in the process.

your body mounts/posts should be on the other side of the shock tower. that way you can use any of the holes on the shock tower for your shocks.

i have a car in the closet to match those shocks.... i ran it a couple times, but i used the TRF shocks, kinda opposite! my first KX i ran with the stock shocks, and found it a little bit strange.
