I agree with you ....
I've ever thought to replace the big pulley (the white one) with my old TA04 black pulley to get lower internal ratio, but the problem was the belt. I didn't know the length of the belt I should use with this pulley, until I've found out that all belt-chassis cars (most of the well-known brands) use the same S3M type belt...

If you running asphalt rubber, you will find stock TA05 does require a bit more traction, especially in mod. The car also need some serious weight reducing work to make it run good.

Yup, Stock mounts for the are 1A's...

Also, the inboard toe affects your wheelbase and weight placement over the wheels.

Now I'm really interested in getting mine out on asphalt so that I can see what the handling differences are.

Tech racing has a PINK (yuk!) conversion for the 05.

I think I might do the aluminum diff outdrives though.

Nothing special, just follow the instructions. Before you know it, you'll be finished.

I find it kinda funny that a car that has such weight problems, cost so much (supposedly) to make race ready and as some visitors here and locals where CIVIC and I race have said, "can't compete with high end cars", has become so popular.

I mean really, how often do you see a car grow in popularity so fast with no teams racing it at big events? That means that the popularity of this car has basically grown by word of mouth and seeing it perform on the track. There are even people who wouldn't have even spit on the car 2-3 months ago, that are suddenly asking A LOT of questions about it and even planning to buy one.

Just kinda makes you wanna laugh.

Tamiya really got it right with this car.

My car which a posted pics yesterday is now only 1502 grams without transponder. Only non TCS mod I did was take off the battery straps and use tape which I had to dremel slot in the chassis. Im very confident that once I do get the carbon components it will be around 1480 grams easily. Im still waiting for my stabilizer set so the weight my go up a bit.

Dan ... very strange. My car is almost identical to your and weighs nearly 1590. Maybe it is the top deck and graphite battery brace !!!!

Watch out for TJ with the tape modification

The asphalt rubber traction problem of TA05 is more like a overweight problem. The stock car just too heavy for fast cornering in low traction surface. My TA05 is on 1544g with PT, and it perform lots better in corner than my friend's TA05, which is 1600g (very overweight, bcz overweight Novak SS5800 sys).
