How cold? I'm running Sorex 36's with Yokomo thin inserts on indoor asphalt. Grips great with compound and they last.

Spools suck!!! You only should use them if your at the reedy race or their is zero traction. One-ways are always faster.

I'd pick up a set of TakeOff CS-22s and CS-27s. You want the Premounts. These will hook up just about anywhere!

Spools can be awesome, but are pretty hard on the front driveline/suspension. But then they also tend to be much more forgiving than a oneway. I'd say anywhere that there isn't smooth high traction asphalt I'd run the spool. On ultra smooth high traction asphalt I'd go with the oneways.

Hi Guys,

Xenon Racing has announced that along with their aluminum upper bulkhead pieces (which are coming in next week) they are also making a CNC machined aluminum finned motor mount (picture attached) which will be available in 2 weeks. price is currently right about $39.99. We've been dealing with Xenon Racing for over 2 years and I personally trust their quality of work

We are also planning on a Super TA05 article on our website. We will start with a bone stock TA05 supra kit and modified it slowly from there. We will provide building tips in the article and also reasons for hop-ups installed. We hope this to be an on going article (and the car will be raced as well) to provide information and setup tips. The car will also be displayed at the shop and local races that we attend. Stay tuned

Happy Holidays Everyone

Steve Wang

the novak cyclone c2 speedo is a bit snug in the ta05 (behind the motor). maybe a bit too snug.... wondering if this could be bad for the electronics inside. anyone using this esc? ok in collision?

Default Diff screw

Does anybody know if there is an optional (stronger) diff screw for the TA05??? I know for the F201 cars, there is an optional diff screw available.

Anybody broke their's a few times already?

Thanks,
Roy

Thanks..... I thought it would be a good idea to try it......

It has about 10mm or so before the body hits the motor guard (Ride Accord Version B). It would take a nasty hit to get to the fan..... I will give it a test run and see how it works out....

Yeh, I'm just running the standard diff screws. Thats what's in the new 415 MSX diff as well....

I have run my TA05 with either 7 and 8 turn motors and I haven't had a problem with the diffs (precision outdrives).
