Hi Guys,

Project XR05 has been updated. We are done with the construction, need to install electronics and will start testing it at local tracks

Hi Steve, slighty O/t but...

The outdrives on the Tamiya spool for the TA05, are the metal or plastic? Also can you get the shims for it seperate?

Many thanks
Ed

Wow, I never knew that the TA05 spool comes with metal joints. So it will fit the Tamiya TRF415MSX spool too? What about EVO4? Will it fit?

If the topdeck on that chassis conversion stretched from front to rear, I would of defo bought it, shame it stopped at them plastic braces, that just adds a section for tweak and flex

a teammate swapped out the metal outdrives with the delrin ones (from the tamiya 415 spool) on his TA05 and it works. im pretty confident these outdrives are identical components to the 415MS/EvoIV spools that Tamiya released.

i have the spool for the TA05 but havent tried it. ill probably get some of the delrin replacement drives and use those instead.

Where are you guys getting the delrin outdrives I used my spares up and am saving my last two for TCS, but would rather use the delrin than the steel because it doesn't seem to chatter as bad.

thats the exact reason i wanna use the delrin. less chatter. i havent gotten any. maybe steve has them in stock? otherwise... might have to go overseas?

hopefully someone stateside has it in stock.

EDIT: doesnt look like they sell the delrin outdrives separately

I heard they were selling them seperatly at one point but havn't heard of anything since I would love to get some, the TIR spool will be my next choice but unfortunatly its no TCS legal.

Surprisingly this car weighs just 20g heavier than my tbo2r. I thought this car was heavy as someone mentioned. Its stock and yet to be lightened with carbon hopups and titanium parts. I wonder if I should even bother since it handles alright and weighs almost the same as my older rc.....

Like you said, the car really isn't that heavy. You hear a lot about it being heavy, but its not all that bad, especially if you race where there is a weight minimum. I know heavy, I used to run a Corally C4. Now THAT thing was heavy! LOL

Now if people take the car and add alloy suspension blocks, alloy steering, alloy rear hubs, and alloy knuckles, then yeah...it can get pretty heafty.

The new lightweight stuff expected later this month should really get rid of the only legitimate complaint that people have about the car.

We all have to keep in mind though, that we never get something for nothing. Those composite parts aren't going to be as 'forgiving' as the stock pieces.

The actual measurements are:

Purple 22.72
Gray 20.91
White Short 17.54
Silver 16.13
Blue Short 15.69
White 15.27
Blue 14.08
Yellow Short 13.99
Yellow 13.33
Red Short 12.35
Red 11.86
Ling how about the older springs like the ones on the DJ suspension?? Do you have spring rates for the long and shorts of those? or even the gold springs? or any of the 414X springs?
