Can you please expand on this post. Did you simply bolt in an xray diff? How do you mount blades on the tamiya driveshafts, as i thought they are narrower in diameter

Default Is there any slop??

Pretty close to getting myself a TA05 but I was wondering if it was a fairly tight car (suspension arms, hubs, etc) or does it have alot of slop/play? I have a TB02 and F201 that took quite a bit of work to get everything to fit snugly and just hope the TA05 isn't going to be the same way.

Thanks!

I got a TA05 on the way and i want to get some other stuff ordered or bought before it comes. I relise the space for the ESC is limited, i am wondering if there is enough room for a Novak GTB? Going out tomorrow to check out some boxing week deals and might pick up a GTB system if there is any on sale.

All ESC should fit. But you have to stack it on top of the Servo if your ESC is big.

The car is mighty tight. I haven't ran it yet, but there are no arms moving around or wheels fitting loosely if that's what you meant. The area for the ESC is 43mm x 38mm.

There is a fair bit of play after running it a while. But much to my suprise, it really doesn't make a difference on the track. I'd say most of the play in the suspension actually comes from the bearing tolerances.

If your in the market for an ESC...i'd pass on all the bigfooted ones. You can pick up a QC1 or QC2 for under $100 easy since the QC3 is on the way. Or go with the KO speedo...both are tiny!

it's better to stack the receiver on top of servo instead of ESC, otherwise you need to run the wire on top of the receiver which is not recommended.

The smallest ESC that you can find is the KO PROPO VFS-1.

Has anyone has this problem with a diff thrust bearing? There are 3 shattered ball bearings after 5 runs.

Dongskie,

Almost done with my TA05! Still lacking front universals. Tried ordering online. I hope it gets here... soon.

Merry Christmas!

Only time I have ever seen that is if the thrust race has been run dry and tight, or just way to tight.

I took my TA05 out for a test session today, with the fans mounted. Ran it with a 7x2 & 7x1 Ti and IB 3800 batteries. It ran a LOT cooler with the fans.

I also used a MuchMore thermoelectric motor cooler before each run.

It allowed me to tune the motor to make more power and the motor stayed heaps cooler with zero fade....... Sweet......

Yeah, I always pack the hell out of my thrust bearings with a lot of grease. And re-grease it every week.
