Here's a translation..
http://www.google.com/translate?u=ht...&hl=en&ie=UTF8

Looks like they're releasing the LW Suspension kit as well, most likely with with 48mm shafts this time and it's not a 49-number item, so it's here to stay, let's hope

Wow.. that's a lotta hardened parts..

A Parts: (gonna need 2 of these)
Bulkheads
Belt Tension adjusters
Camber link riser
Servo Stays
Sway bar mounts
3mm suspension spacers
Diff nut holder
Wheel nuts (cheap, lighter alternative to the aluminum ones)

K Parts:
Front and Rear Braces
Steering set w/ Link
Spur Cover
Motor Cover

That should certainly stiffen things up with those braces, and would you really need the aluminum steering set with these reinforced ones? I have both the alu. steering and carbon link, but may consider just swapping the aluminum with the reinforced pieces, keep the carbon link and the lightened posts it included..

So when are they gonna make hardened F parts (C-hubs)?!?

Get the LW Reversible suspension if you want reinforced Hub Carriers.

Greetings All. Im new to Tamiya cars and I've just put my first TA05 together. Me and my son are going to start racing in the TCS. He is going to be racing the mini M03 class. I'm thinking about racing in the GT2 class. I have a few questions

(about the TA05):
1. Does anybody have a carpet setup to start with?
2. Other than being threaded, what are the pro's about the TRF shocks?
3. What servo/ESC are you guys using?

(about TCS)
4. Are wheels from a different company allowed? (i.e. HPI, YOKOMO, etc..)

Thanks

I have, will take a pic later (now I got my camera working!!!)

re: carpet setup

Start with around 45wt shock oil all round, and go for the TRF shocks, they are stronger, lighter and more consistent to use. Otherwise use the kit settings all round for camber and shocks, 5mm ride height at the front and 5.5mm at the rear, give 1mm of droop front and 1.5mm rear. Use swaybars, red.

Nop, no cutting done to get that it, it sits on two strips of servo tape, that it, it is a squeeze but just fits.

1.Foam or rubber tire?
2.I think they are one of the best shocks on the market. Very smooth. Very nice.
3.Futaba s9550 and a KO Propo VFS1 (for TA05) and LRP Q2 (for 415MSX)
4.Only Tamiya Wheels and Tires are allowed for TCS. But you can use any kind of insert you want.
