Front CVD's would be your first buy, and some TRF pistons if you can't afford the TRF shocks, plus, if you don't like 0.6 module gears, a 76, 77 or 78 tooth RW spur gear.

does anyone want to sell me thir trf shocks? lol i really want them but i cant afford to shell out 70 bucks for them.

hey where did u guys get those blue screws and the blu turnbuckles? i want to make my car BLUE too.

has anybody noticed that the rear suspension arms are hellla tight to the rear hub carrier? mine fit so tightly that the hubcarrier barely moves. i had to file it down alot to get it to work perfectly. and teh ball diffs are such a pain in the u know wat to make. i spent a good 30 minutes thinking why it wouldnt fit until i read that i had to put them together really hard.

any other problems in this kit that new ta05 makers should know about?

I'm new to the TA05 too; ended up ordering mine with titanium screws, TRF shocks, aramid belts, CVD's for front and rear and a set of tuning springs.

Drifter, the manual does state that you MAY need to have to file some material off the wishbone to fit the hub, there are some raised bosses there to just that purpose.

If anyone is looking for a new TA05 with hopups, I just listed mine in the for sale forum. I decided to stick with my EVO IV for now.
Thanks

Are the spurs you mentioned in 64dp and do you have a gear chart for the said gears?

Thanks

total came out to about $250 for everything, shipped from Japan. The TRF shocks were 4262 yen, so about 40 bucks.

Had a chance today to get some time on the rug with the '05...all I can say is that I was impressed. The only thing on my car thats not stock is the TRF shocks. No uni's nothing...This car will have "zero" problems competing at a club level. My car needed very little in the way of setup to get it comfortable for me to go fast. I will post a complete setup soon...but basically it was a stock setup per the manual except the shocks and droop settings. Anyone thinking about getting this car, but is hesitent because of the "flex" go ahead and get it. You won't be dissapointed.

i can definately agree with him. i have been driven many cars before. MR4TC SD/mini, EVO III/IV, TRF414m2 and 415. tl01, tt01, tb02, m03l. and our of all these cars im gona say the ta05 drives pretty damn smoothly. i say it may compete with the trf414m2 and the evo's and the mr4tc's. this cars rolls smoothly and drives like an angel.

the hop-ups, i got a feeling that if u add them the car will be like heaven, nice trf shocks and a universal system will make this car FLY on stock engine.
