Default Plastic Toe Blocks

The stock suspension blocks are 41mm wide measured from hole to hole (outside edges).

Is this how we are supposed to measure the suspension blocks?

thanks.

Right? If you get this chassis you better be real careful not to short out your batteries against this chassis if not major glitches will occur! I had problems with that on the 04 because of the tight fit using side packs. The 04 tub was designed for stick packs where as the 05 is designed for the side by side battery config.!!!!!!
Just my 2cents!

That is 1 fine looking chassis. Ta-05R looks to be well on it's way.

Well im happier than a pig in sh^t lol. 05 arrived last night, and finished installing everything ready for practice tonight. Will keep u posted on how it handles. Ive seen a few setups on here, but figured id try it with an 04 setup i liked and work from there. Ill be swapping out the upper screws with either titanium or aluminium blue Love the car so far, and yes its quiet!

axle182: Very nice and clean layout you have there with the brushless. I've seen some brushless setups that look like someone dumped a bowl of colorful spaghetti on the car.

I had started to wonder whether it was even possible to get a clean wire set up with those systems in. Good to see it is.

Its definately not the cleanest wiring out there. I wish that novak would put plugs on both ends of the sensor wiring, and include different length wires in the package. im a bit worried it will thermal as the esc has wires all around the heatsink.
