Is it me or does it seem a little silly to spend more than what a 415MSX costs on upgrading a TA05?

Depends on your point of veiw, if you are after a cheap TC then no, if you find the handling balance of the TA05 better than the 415MSX then if you can justify it, then yes,

You can't buy a 415MSX for $150 and upgrade it later.

Aluma : If you're looking at it from a cost effective value for money point of view then yes it is a little....no quite silly but for some guys it's about having a kickass ride which also looks the part. I fall into the latter of the two and my TA05, including pretty much every Tamiya hop available for the TA05 and the electronics has cost me just about double what I paid for my 415MSX.

Alien : The TA04/TB02 Lightweight suspension and the TRF415 Lightweight suspension will work, if you can find it it would be better to go for the 415 lightweight suspension because it comes with 46mm swingshafts for the universals. I went for the TA04/TBOS lightweight suspension and replaced the 42mm swingshafts with 48mm shafts.

Cheehtae : I'm not sure if it will work, maybe somebody else can confirm but I don't think the rear uprights which come in the kit will fit on the lightweight arms

You said it< anybody can confirm? it's much cheaper if you would just buy the arm and the carrier still.

point taken Cheehtae, the only other parts needed to do the conversion would be the 950 bearings and then it should still work out cheaper than buying the lightweight suspension set

umm, why would you want to? the 415msx is the best tamiya has right now. It doesnt NEED hopups. I started with a tl01 and hopped it up and frankly couldn't compete. Then I went to the TB01 and hopped it up and still couldnt compete. Then to the TBevo2 and started catching up a bit... I've had my evo3 since it came out and usually place 1st or 2nd or 3rd but I think its time to upgrade to tamiya's finest again, but I have my doubts about belt drive in the bumpy, rocky, dusty track we have.

The point was that someone may not have the $400+ for the 415MSX at one time. The TA05 seems to be a great entry-level TC that can hold it's own in club racing. That's a very good deal for $150, and can apparently be made very competitive for about $200 more, which doesn't need to be spent at the time of initial purchase.
I'm getting a TA05 for club racing on an Ozite carpet track and will be racing against Xrays regularly. Having dual ball diffs is a good start, rather than a one-way or spool. I'll see how it holds up for the price. From what I'm reading here it should do just fine.
If I feel the need to upgrade parts, there's plenty of CF, graphite, and aluminum around for selective upgrades. I like that option

hey guys..

if you are going to upgrade to the lightweight suspension. you will need to change the following:

front:
- castor block
- steering knuckle
- bearings
- axles

rear:
- rear hub
- axle
- bearings

the old suspension uses 5x11 bearings. the lwt. susp. uses 5x9

and no. you cannot use the lwt. susp. arms with the original suspension rear hub. it will not fit.

hope that helps.
