The difference between height of 1mm is that good or bad?

I just found there's an aluminum rear 1-degree upright for the Evo III, 53687, in the TB-02 upgrade guide.. would that work with the regular TA04 arms, and thus the TA05 as well?

Evo 3, Evo4, 415, 415 MS, 414, 414m, & 414MII should all work I think even the Evo 2 will work.

The only reason why TA05 will beat TA04 is because those good TA04 drivers will most likely jump over to the TA05 because its new.

Either way, getting a TA05 will surely be a sound investment as the TA series has shown its longevity compared to Tamiya's TB EVO and TRF series of cars. You can be sure you wont be forced to upgrade to a TA06 so soon.

It's a hard question to honestly answer because the car isn't even out yet. Wait until someone gets their hands on it. I'm going to get it too, and I can probably give you a good feedback on it since I used to have a TA-04.

TA05 will allow you to use the newer batteries. The IB3800 (not sure about the IB3600), along with the GP3700 series batteries do not fit into the TA04 (unless you modify it heavily). it can fit if you use the saddle pack chassis. but those are difficult to find nowadays.

I think the main reason to switch to the TAO5 over the TAO4 and the TBO2 will be the ability to cool the motor. Not to mention the gearing options over the TBO2.
In the TAO4 the motor is buried with little to no room to use a finned heat sink, even in the TBO2 the motor gets stinkin hot even with a fanned heat sink.
If the nats use the black can, they dont like the heat at all and the silver can tends to fade when hot too.
Besides its NEW. Gotta be better!

I think two of the major upgrades form the 04 to 05 will be the new belt material and the weight being right down the sides of the car-not across the chassis like the 04. I bet a 04 has every bit as good a chnace of nailng the GT2 crown this year-but in 2006-forget it. Its all about the TA05 next year.

If anyone thinks the tao4 is obsolete thier in for a rude awakeing. Yes, the tao5 looks like it should be a better car with all the adjustments on it. But, that's what everyone said about the tbo2. And besides all the chassis for gt2 are just as capable of winning. Remember were racing with mabuchi motors, there's no power. Any car will feel great with that motor. Good Luck to everyone at the Nat's.
