I ran my TA05 for the first time tonight, this car has so much steering without getting loose it is unimaginable! My car was turning lap times right up with the high end T2 X-Rays with only upgraded shocks and springs...............This is by far the best Touring car out of the box. Now I did not run the kit set up.

I have a 3racing 3 mill chassis for sale for the ta05. Only $60.00 shipped. It retailes for around $110.00. Comes with blue tamiya color standoffs. keyed aluminum motor mount, If you go to 3racing.com.hk you can see the chassis. I drove it on carpet, for only one practice day. I decided to unload all of my rc stuff. I've got a brand new 415MS, which was only run at the reedy race last year for sale also. The only problem I had with the 3racing chassis was when I was building it. The top deck when tightend down, put pressure on the spur gear bearings. I had to dremell part of the graphite, so it would unbind the bearing. I went a hair to far, now there's a little play. But, works perfect. I also have a never opened, with the plastic still around the box TB02 for sale. Make an offer.

Finally ran my 05 after assemling last week. Out of the box its very neutral and very easy to drive but I didn't follow the kit setup. Only hop up I made was yellow springs which I think is softer than the stock springs. I'm impressed. It handles just as good as my tbo2r and its half the price. Comes with a sweet supra esso body, too.
The only thing I dont like is that the stock spur limits me to 6.5 gear ratio with the 25T pinion and that's just too low for 23 turns. Are there any tamiya spur bigger than 70T that would make it atleast 5.5 to 6.0? I know there's a 0.4 module spur but I'd like to stick with 0.6 module and not deal with dirt.

Just use any aftermarket spur, like RW-Robinson-etc. I use a 104 64p, but I think you'd want to be around 100 to get to those ratios easier.

This is a good question.

Does anyone know where the kit springs fit into Tamiya's stiffness scale?

Copper<-stiffest
White
Blue
Yellow
Red<-softest

I assume they are in between two of the hop up springs, but which ones.

The silver kit springs are Yellows, what you get from the On-Road Tuned set.

Above the whites, are charcoal grey (Super Hard) and Maroon (Ultra Hard). Not sure if they have a copper..

TryHard has a listing of spring rates, all manus and also susp blocks.
He posts mainly on the 415 thread, you can get a lot of info from the 415 thread that relates to the TA05.

Associated springs fit Tamiya shocks, they are used a lot in carpet racing.
The copper spring is Assoc.

Hello All,

Just ran my TA05 for the 1st time last Friday and all I can say is WOW! MUCH better than my EVO out of the box!

Question... What TRF415 suspension mounts do I use to duplicate exactly the same geometry as the plastic jobbies they have on there now? I do not want to change a thing, just want aluminum instead of plastic.

Thanks...
Chris

You'll need the A/Bridged A mounts to match the plastic.

Yeah, I'm thankful I switched to aluminum, as I got whacked so hard one of my suspension pins in the rear bent 10 degrees.

I'm sure the plastic mount would have ripped right out with that force, at least I could still run, albeit with a bent pin..

3Racing do alloy suspension hangers, mucho cheap as well, and they sell a kit to replace the stock plastic hangers. I have the rears and have the fronts coming to, plus the 3Racing motor mount.... bling bling, this is the most I have felt I WANTED to spend on a car, not need, so I MUST like it, lol

So what I need is..

2 - Bridged A mounts
2 - regular A mounts

correct?

I also notice toe-in in the rear, I'm assuming the hub is toed-in?

thanks...
