it seems like the Tn racing chassis is a better thought out design cos it did w/o the front and rear wing chassis stay,minus point is that the motor area is exposed. just my 2cents worth...what do you guys think?

However kudos for the effort to make the kit.

hey, that looks awesome.

i have a problem with building the Diff for the 05. basically it seems like the long screw that goes through the diff is to short and does not quite reach the lock nut. im pretty sure ive built the rest fine as ive built Tamiya diffs alot and they are pretty much the same.
Just wondering if anyone has had this problem or has a solution to it.

Thanks Tom

I don't want to buy the parts and then have them not fit. $$$.
I was running a 64p 103/30 combo and was using 27t motor, one thing I noticed is the car was really slow, so I went to 100/30-100/29--100/28 and still the car was slowso what I did was this---
98/30,98/29,98/28,98/27-- man the car was very responsive , I know my gear ratio is way off but it works for me. Of course I would like to have someadvice too.

tnx

Mild Seven--check your instructions again for the diff assembly. You prolly have the spring on the worng side of the diff. Others at the track have had the same issue and usually that is the first place I look.

Default Question? what do you like better TB02 or TA05?

Is the ta05 a better handling chassis. I run a tbo2 trf and is it plenty fast as the tc4 at my track but i cannot get the tight corning . Tried every possible set up. Does the 05 feel more stable and handle any better.
Should i switch to the ta05? what do you think? Thanks? Thanks for the help.

Yeah, the screw is too short to engage the locknut when the spring is fully expanded. What I did was just take a pencil a push down on the locknut assembly as I pushed from the other side with the allen wrench. It went together quite easily that way.

What do u race on? Carpet? Asphalt? Rubber? Foams? We need more information. I run on carpet and with foams, and the car is very easy to setup. I learnt my setups off my TA04, and any changes to spring settings, toe, camber etc, is all reflected on the track. Cant comment on the TB02 as ive never driven one (dont like shaft cars ) but i run my TA05 and 415 whenever i race, and i can notice the same feedback from the car when making similar changes to both chassis. Im lovin the 05 Cant decide on which carbon decks to get.... any news if Tamiya is going to speed up their release of carbon decks for the 05 due to the release of the aftermarket ones? I always prefer to keep it TCS legal
