From what I can tell the $36.00 ones have 4 slots for the dog bones and have pin protector so you don't wear out the diff halves so soon.........

DIFF FIX:

Use the Yokomo Diff rings # ZS-506 from Speedtech. Will work for the 415's too.
They are hardened and have one run side, will last a long,long time.
Use Acer ceramic diff balls, 3mm. Carbide balls work well too, but have have the Acer's in for 2 years without probs.
Put some Tamiya AW grease in your palm and rub the diff balls in to get get the lube on them, install and add 1 tinny drop of oil on each ball.
For the thrust brg, which seems to be the major rough part, I have found using
Sta-Lube moly-graph engine assembly lube, found in good auto parts stores, last the longest.
I have used this in 4 hour enduros, with a siver can, and not have any problems.
Works for mod motors for a 2 day race without a rebuild.

just adjust the tension, probably the aramid belts stretched less than the stock belts.

Its not a tension issue, they seem to be less pliable..........

They are not as soft as the stock belts that are broken in, but after a run or 2 they will be. They actually should be a little stiffer on the sides, but less friction on the "tooth" surface.

Just my 2$
Those ceramic balls are that good huh? Well for 12.99 for a 10 pack of 3mm balls(from Acer's website), they better be. But its something thats definitely worth considering if it will stop me from constantly fighting with the stock diff components to get them consistent and not having them wear out.

Thanks for the tip guys.

Does anyone know the actual sizes of the bearings for the TA05? I cant seem to find the sizes anywhere so I can upgrade the stockers. Figured I would sell the stock kit bearings and upgrade to Avid bearings but I need the actual sizes.

(2) 8 x 4mm Center Diff 1
(4) 5 x 8mm Steering Bellcrank
(8) 5 x 11mm Wheels
(4) 10 x 15mm Front & Rear Diffs

I wouldn't worry about upgrading. The stock bearings are very good.

Hey guys...awesome thread!

1. Have any of you got an gear (final drive) chart you could send me?
2. Also what size spur gears have you been able to fit on the car without poking through the bottom of the chassis?
3. I bought the Raybrig (sp) chassis is it legal (TCS) to open the cooling air hole on the top of the body?
4. Are the new TA-05 parts TCS legal? I.E. the lightweight chassis etc...hope so just bought it.

Thanks

Nope, I took the wheel straight off when I seen it, thought I had bent a stub axle.... took the hex off and all the balls in the bearing tried to make a dash for it... little blighters. 17 years of racing and thats a first.... DOH!!

We just got a few sets in stock of the TRF Special Blue shocks in stock. We also received a large shipment of Tamiya parts (quite a few TA05 parts)
