Do you notice that he is using the option suspension block? He is using 1B & 1XC for front and 1XD & 1B for the rear.
The thing is, I can only find 1A,1B,1C,1D,1E or X, XA, XB, XC, XD but I cant find those 1XA, 1XB,1XC, 1XD... I am confused..

BTW, My TA05 is almost done. I had the Front oneway, CF shock Tower, LW lower deck, TRF dampers, Alum. servo mount, UJ and Stabilizer bar. I still need to get the suspension block and hard arms.
the xa, xb, xc, and xd blocks you found are the 1xa,1xb, 1xc, 1xc...... if you look at the xa, xb ... blocks on the tamiya website you can see they actually have a 1 before it.

I was able to drop 40 grams today off of my TA05. I switched out my esc for a much smaller one and picked up a LW chassis. The chassis is approx. 18-19 grams lighter than the stock. I will be using strapping tape to hold down the batteries. With the F430 body the car is at 1550 grams. I realized that the sway bar set added about 20-25 grams. I'll hopefully be able to get it to handle well enough without the sway bars. We'll see this next weekend.--Al

Now that I think about it, I did have the battery strap on the chassis when I weighed it. The logic was that I wouldn't have to use the strap and could use tape instead.--Al

I love that bumber on there. Is that a TA05 part, or is that a bumper from another Tamiya car?

I noticed that they opened the tops of the ball cups on the inner camber links. Allowing acces the screws in those ball joints. Cool idea, think I'll do that.

I wonder if tha that heat sink really helps, or does it do like most heatsinks and just end up trapping heat in the motor. Hmm...

Too bad they still haven't made their own blue motor mount. But those blue turnbuckles are sweet.

I believe it's just a TRF415 bumper, or at least the shape is similar.. not sure why you'd want that dip in the middle, wouldn't do too much to save the front of the shell..

The next ball connectors they're coming out with actually have hex holes in the heads, so no grub screws

Ah, but they DO have their own blue motor mount coming out..

a whole 4 grams lighter! Hah! MmmMMmm.. aluminum diffs.. no more melting!.. mmMmm.. LW spur shaft.. finally they woke up and got rid of those stupid C-clips at the ends! I threw those out ages ago.. works for the 415, apparently..

Can't wait for the shortened LWS arms, so I don't need to buy new universals!

What I don't get is the spur holder.. .. why make it even heavier, and how much force does it really take to warp?

I have the heatsink, it's really great.. has tons of breathing holes for the motor while keeping it nice and cool..

Yeah, but it looks like its a little wider which would support the front edges of the body more.

I didn't realize how bad those little C-clips were until I went to install my center one-way. How in the hell do they manage to pull off the unbelieveable trick of being hard to get on and get off?

Well thats good to know. I know it looks really good, but most heatsinks hurt more than they help (by blocking cooling vents), but its good to know that this on is better designed.

The stock screws are bad! Almost on par with the RDX's Torx screws

The heads on the torx screws don't eventually wear out...they just do it on the spot They are not ment for RC applications
