Just wondering what is the difference between the stock, 64 and 48 pitch gears.

Thanks.

They just have different size teeth. 64 pitch has the smallest teeth and most people will claim they are the most efficient. The stock gears are .6 module (kind of like metric 48 pitch) and only work with those pinions. 64 pitch is the most common for onroad (in the states atleast) and 48 is popular for offroad. I ran 48 pitch onroad for many years and still do in certain situations (outdoors).

Sure I try and give my LHS or track my business if they can come close to some of the best deals on products. I am not going to kiss my brains away supporting full list prices when I can get them 30% to 50% off elsewhere. For some guys money does not matter, for me I have to watch what I spend.

I did buy my latest car a month ago at my local track. My hopup parts I did buy mostly from Hong Kong or Japan with a few from my LHS. Everyone has an opinion or situation they work within. There are as well many other threads that re-hashed this same topic. This is not one of them.
Couldn't have said it better myself!

hi, i used it for about 3 months (obviously more than 5 packs), and it still spins nicely, you might want to check for any binds. especially if you are still using the plastic hex wheel hub, it might bind and scrubbing against your bearing when you overtighten the wheels.

I'm looking to see a picture of either a mounted up Novak GTB system or LRP Sphere/Neo setup.

Mainly, I want to be sure that the GTB or Sphere would even fit in the space provided for the esc in this car. I measured another racers GTB and it seems as though it would fit, but I'd like to be sure. The Sphere seems a little large though.

So again, if anyone has mounted up one of these systems in the TA05, post a pic for me.

Thanks

Here you go - fits fine

Default Ball Cups

Anybody having trouble with the front ball cups popping off quite easilly? I know the obvious solution to this would be to not hit anything but still to me its a little too easy to pop them off.

This goes for all ball cups.........If it pops off once then pop it back on...........If it pops off twice then replace it because it has stretched and will never be strong again. Good Luck!

Hey axle182...what kind of foams are those? and did you need to make any mods to run them? I just built a new TA05 and tried putting some foams on, the rears were OK but the fronts, even trimmed to 26mm, come very close to the cabmer link. Also, any tips for carpet running on foams ?

Thanks!

Hey guys. I've got a couple questions.

First, does anyone know how much aramid belts fee up the drive train of this car? Is it a significant amount?

And second, any one have any setups posted for the stock suspension on the TA05? I've seen one or two with the LW suspenstion, but not much with the stock stuff. If anyone has one to post, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

I had the same experience. I posted in here a few weeks ago and the solution seems to be running the 6mm hex's. Hope this helps.

I'm sure that fits into my "does it fit" question some how, but I must have missed it.

Thanks for the information though...
