I was told by a Tamiya rep that the blue belts are the same material as the regular Aramid belts, just with blue coloring in them. I have been running mine since they were released, I think in late Decmeber and they are like new. That's running 19t on carpet and asphalt.

I also understand that the lightened center shaft that will be released on May 31st no longer uses the "C" clips.

I did run my 05 with a CO27 a couple of times and I wound up at 104/31-32 for a medium track with rubber.

for a co27 i used 100/33 for rubber tire on carpet with a 100foot straight.

the aramid belts seem hold up fine. i've not heard of any unusual wear. have you checked to see that your tensioner is indexed evenly on both sides?

what's your gearing for 19t rubber?
Just ran mine today it seems undergeared, I was running 100/31 and tried 96/31 on a chameleon motor.

Told you at the track I think there's something wrong. Maybe you need to cut the comm or change brush. One thing is your gearing is too low(undergeared). With 23turns you can go for 5.8 to 6.2 gear ratio. With your gear ratio now you're around 6.56. Your motor is always at max rpm and that will heat up your motor just like if it was overgeared.
Switch to spur 105T 0.4 module and try a 38-40 pinion. Thats ok for the track you run in.

Hmm..then why did we all have the same speed? Me and the other guy were using black cans only. Must be your motor if the drivetrain is free.

You know I keep hearing people telling others to run 5.5-6.2 final drive for 19 turn class, but I have never had any success being anywhere near that gearing. I have probably a dozen 19 turn motors and most of them are Chameleon 2s and if I go below 6.70 on any of these motors, they get hot and the car slows after the 3 minute mark. The only time I ever dip below that gearing is on one of te local monster 180ft backstraight tracks. I like to keep my motors in the 120-130 deg range and most of the time on a medium track 75x125 I run around 7-7.10. Now I am by no means near a "sponsered driver" but I do pretty well at local level. And I think if you asked my fellow racers if I was undergeard, most would say not at all. I have never felt undergeared. Now take this with a grain of salt, but maybe try running closer to 6.80-7.00 and I bet you will have a fast car with tons of torque and the motor will come off the track warm, not scalding. Here is a basic gearing chart.


I run a 104 spur. You can run a 106, but I don't like how close it is to the ground.

27T Class:

Monster 104/29-31
CO27 104/30-32

19T Class
Chameleon 1/2 104/32-34
Komodo 104/30-32

Now for 23turn class I have no idea, never ran it. But at a national level they run it similar to a Johnson silver can 540 gearing. I probably would start around a 6.0 and work down

[QUOTE=axle182]LOL nah, two reasons Dan, they never get off their bum and answer my emails plus they run the 3 racing chassis. Mine is all fine Tamiya parts . Tell em i said HEY! too. They better be saving for the IIC '07!

Hahahah, you two better hug or something, don't want to break up a email fight!

Steptoe, this is the link you need for IIC: IIC linkage

Oh, btw, those setup sheets for the TA05 didnt come through either on my email.

Axle! Waddup? TRF Shockies?

Got some photos of my bling 05 to put up soon! Can't wait to run it this Sunday!
