Yes you can ask them to see the foam bumpers in stock and match one up to the stock piece as close as possible. I will be running stock this weekend, if the car got even better then last week , I will try 19 turn.

The pulley teeth is the same as TTA-180 (yours), right ?
I hope it'll be faster .... what do you think ?
Yes, they are both 18t. I can't say that it'll be faster. But a hair more efficient and smoother. The only problem is the added weight. Hopefully Tamiya will make a plastic/direct 18t pulley set. That would be cool.

I cannot find Tamiya screws anywhere on the net!! Can someone point me in the right direction??

I plan on racing gt3 at our tcs event here in fremont,ca and was told that the stock dogbones have a tendency to pop out. I wouldn't mind changing them out to swingshafts,but they don't seem any lighter than the bone/axle combo. Anyone have some input on this??--Al

al, worst case, get the 46mm univs. the weight vs 1 poppin out in the race (dont have to deal w/that anymore).

u have the precision diff cups right, they help more than anythin? what u runnin up front (diff/spool/1way)?

u can get the ally 46mm w/stock or ti stubs (use ally shafts in rear), but lotta ka-ching.

Tower carries some of the Titanium Tamiya screws.

Speedtech carries some Tamiya, and has Titanium kits for the TA05 that are not Tamiya brand. I have used then and they are good.

You can use aftermarket screws for TCS, you just have to use Tamiya if you win the trip to Japan.

I have seen some companies on e-bay in Hong Kong that have the Tamiya aluminum screws.

Yes same as Evo4. Not many others are as thin as the stock foam.

I took the time to weigh all the front diff options. Spool is the heaviest, the one way a bit lighter, then the option diff halves with the metal outer rings. The lightest was the stock diff.

If you want to spend the $ get the Titanium out drive axle shafts with the Aluminum bones.

Instead of the cermaic bearing kit for $100 I would have gotten this;
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=460&id=5961

and 2 sets of these;

http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=459&id=5737

Solves rotating mass, weight and chucking dog bones...

Yes, I think weight is an issue.. but it's durable than plastic.
Maybe I'll get it later on my next order.... I'll try tamiya center-1-way first.
Thanks for the comment.

Nice pics .... who makes the bulkhead ? 3racing ?

What's the weight of your TA05 + body ?

I see you're using 48P spur gear from RW racing, right ? Does it good / durable teeth ?

I see your G11 is too big for the chassis, does it fit tight ?
