Love all those blue stuff. Are they all tamiya brand made for tao5 or adapted from 415 stuff? Suspenstion mounts, diff joints,turnbuckles are blue. Nice man.

I have recently built a TA05 with stock chassis. Compared to my graphite cars, this chassis seems tweeked, (i.e. does not lie flat on set-up board) I checked everthing on the car, all seems fine, it has never been run, so I do not believe anything can be bent. The plastic chassis just seems molded that way. Has anyone else noticed the same condition with their chassis?

The carbon chassis seems to be more along the lines of a TC4 or Yokomo molded tub, is this true? And if so, is it worth getting the carbon chassis. I will be racing stock and 19t, asphalt. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Mine has a bit of a tweak as well and I haven't run it either. it's just the nature of the plastic. In general, I think people sweat a slight tweak way too much.

Every ta05 I have checked out on my scales has a weight balance issue. When you put the car on 4 scales you get the rear wheels to balance the same, but the fronts are about 40 grams different. Trust me it does not seem to effect the car that much. My car is running right up with the T2 X-Rays and Corrallys.........

today I run the car and my front left dogbone pop out from the wheel side.... is this normal? I had just tightened my diff... I think only one of those red foams is not enough.... has anyone of you had the same problem before? Should I buy the CVDs???

that was very frustrating!....

Yes buy the CVD`s for the front. They are also more efficient.

I know this is a bit off topic, but alot of guys have been looking for a thrust bearing , I ordered 2 packs which I would only need one pack(comes in two), so whoever is interested can PM me or e-mail me, also if any body has a cross joint( the one that go inside the CVD's , I'm willing to make a trade. $9.00 plus $3.00 shipping, paypal is Ok but not credit card funded. TNX and happy racing to all.

Yes that lube is fine
Put your balls in a plastic baggie.........
Put a small amount of diff lube in the bag with them
Squish them around in the lube and pull them out 1 at a time and put them in the diff gear....................

Watch out ....those balls get slippery .............
