it will not fit.. the front and rear belts for the TA05 are identical in length. which will logically place the spur gear/center pulley directly in the center.

Hmmm.... so will this mean that the TRF 416 (or how they would like to call it) will be based on the new TA05 and also have a mid motor layout?!

The front belt is shorter and the rear belt longer than a 415.

Some photo analysis:

* chassis is about 6mm wider than TRF415 on each side.
* battery moved about 5mm out from center line compare with TRF415
* suspension arms are from TRF415/TRF414/EVO3, not like TB-02R which is using TRF415MS/EVO4 LW suspension arms
* suspension arm mount are compatiable with TRF415
* 2F deck mount on both front/rear/center gearbox (or said, bulkhead)

By all these analysis, I guess:

* There will be a version with carbon-fiber chassis plus 2F deck soon
* There will be a version with LW suspension soon
* There will be a version with aluminum bulkhead

By adding all this, carbon-fiber chassis, 2F deck, LW suspension, aluminum bulkhead, we probably got TRF416 already...

Now the real quesiton is: which one is more important?

A axis base weight centralize design (TRF415)
or
A wheel base weight centralize design (TA-05)

VERY INTERESTING QUESTION....

great analysis, is it worth it to get a Ta05 than a 415?
i think it all depends on the retail price.

the same thing goes for the Tb-02r and EvoIII.
is it worth it?

looks as if the pullies in the drivetrain are made from derlin or low friction material. wonder if they can be used on the 415.

The answer would be no on getting a TA05 over 415.

If you race the TCS series anywhere then both might be an option. Although I would wait for the TA05 pro or TRF version.

Tamiya is kinda funny. It is almost like buying a computer. They get obsolete really quick. Although unless you are doing high end video stuff or racing at the World level just about any car will work fine. Right now I still race my 2 year old computer and program with my 2 year old car...

just a couple of observations...excuse me if it's been discussed before..haven't read the whole thread yet.....

the center pulley looks very much like the 415...if it is...that means we can carry over the one-way center pully...now the front diff looks to be offset to me(correct me if i'm wrong)...so that means we can't carry over the 415 front one-way....does the ta04 one-way have the same number of teeth? if so, then i guess we can carry that over as well. It would be cool too if the shock towers can carry over from the ta04 or 415 but somehow i doubt it. But i'm glad the big t is including an ADJUSTABLE aluminum motor mount...unlike the plastic fixed mount from the teebee. But all in all...car just looks like a tub 415 with the motor mount moved into the center of the chasis.....just the ticket for us belt lovers for the the gt2 class
