hmmm, well you might wanna wait a little longer, something will be debuting at the Reedy Race. Photo's will surely come soon. Heck, who are we kidding, downloading and posting pics maybe the last thing to do after a day of practice and wrenching. Good nite and see ya bright and early for the first day of practice for the Reedy Race of Champions 2005.

TA05 at the Reedy Race.
There was a new TA05 on display in the Tamiya Museum / outlet store.
You could actually pick it up and twist the living sh$t out of it, fexi flyer!!
About as stiff as a TT01.
Nice layout, but will need tons of hopups, I think more than the TB02, witch could use existing EVO parts.
The Past Chumps race is going to be really interesting this year, see if the brushless motors can bow the chassis.

Gary, make shure you get the first one, spend a ton of money on it, and then let us all know, OK?

hahaha poor gary! non stop abuse

fred.. did you make it down for reedy? i saw your paint work for Dan G.. looks good. past chumps are allowed to use any/all hopups for the TA05 from the rumors ive heard

Mr. Jun also confirmed when i spoke with him at RCX that the material for the TA05 tub will be stiffer than the plastic tub on the teebee.... so maybe the "show" version is only flexy-flyer type.

Hi Chris, made it to the Reedy. My son won the G main and I won the H main. Pretty far down, but had a great time. The 1200 mile drive home was made a lot easier with 2 big trophys
The TA05 on display had the right body on it. I think it was from the show.
Sure was soft, a lot more than my TB02's. Hopefully the production version will be a lot stiffer. Will still get one, probably right after Kevin M gets the first one
See you at the Nats.

Dan's and our bodies were painted by Todd Daly-- BrainFart Designs, in Portland
BrainFart, like that name esp. at my age, seem to get a lot of those.

The question is will all the hopups be available by nats? Hebiki are you going to the Spektrum? I dont want any glitching this year so I might make the switch as well.

Hey I was wondering if I could get some advise from you Tamiya guys ?
I'm running Tamiya shocks on my xxx-s, I'm using the gold ball studs that the shocks mount to, but the threads are a little short. a guy at my local track ''SRS'' gave me one that had long threads on it, but he didn't know the part #.

I went to the Tamiya web site and I could not find any thing. I tried a few local Hobby shops that sell Tamiya parts, no one seems to know what car uses that ball stud or that part #.

I see lundsford sells alot of different size ball studs but I don't know what size it is.

If any of you guys could help me with this I would really appreciate it.

Also I was wondering If any of You guys would know how many different size pistons, Tamiya makes for there shocks, and what would be the closest equivalent to losi pistons?

Do any other brand of pistons fit the Tamiya shocks?

I figured out that the Associated springs fit the Tamiya shocks.

Any and all help with these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Mike.

rayspeed springs fit the tamiya shocks but you'll need the rayspeed alum. retainer (thingy at the bottom).

i use the tamiya pistons exclusively (2 and 3 hole). other pistons are made out of plastic.. tamiya ones are made from delrin i believe. if ive needed "bigger" holes.. i just drill them out myself.

sorry thats all i know

Chrome I think the ball stud you are looking for is from the TLT Mini Monster along with the TA-04 with the racing uprights. I'll look tonight and see if I can find a part number.

Oh and Tom I ran Spektrum on my 3PK with no issues, glitches or delay.

hi there guys,

I don't know if what i'm about to say has already been mentioned, my bad if it already has, but if you look close at the fully hopped ta-05, you notice a tie-rod thing that seems to go from the near the motor mount to the rear diff case...does anyone know what that is? does?

Love the new car

Somebody already noticed that and I think the determination was that is is a stiffiner of sorts because of the lack of an upper deck, you know to reduce flexing of the chassis from back to front instead of left to right flexing!
Just my 2$
