Hi,

I got the 430. I wish I would have gotten the M/B C class DTM. (I love DTH cars). I won't be running the kit body anyways as I don't race in the TCS series. but I might still buy a M/B body for when it's sitting on the shelf.

Civic91:

will the white delrin diifs from a EVO IV work in a TA 05?? I have a chance to pick a couple up really cheap (like free) NIP.

again thanks for your help

(all the graphite compostie bits and the graphite centre brace for the motor/layshaft mount.

what are you guys running for diffs??? these??? TAM53849: TA05 High Precision Diff Joints
or is there something else. we plan to mostly run 27/19 and maybe some 4300/5800 and the outside chance of a few runs with a 3.5/4.5/5.5

I really don't have any TCS races close to where I live but for now I would like to stay with mostly Tamiya parts........

Thanks for you time and help
Uhh.....see what CIVIC said.

lol as i'll be racing in the TCS,i'll use the kit body.I notice that the Merc' rear spoiler might be a little weak n could fail in the event of a roll-over.And like u,i love the DTM cars.

No, they won't fit. Just make sure the diffs aren't slipping and like I said, you should be good up to a beast 19 or decent 10 wind. But beyond that...especially the torque of brushless...get the aluminum diffs. Delrin would probably hold for a race or 2...if you were lucky with a 4.5

If you're planning on getting these, then use harder springs cause when i mounted them on my TA-05 the chassis was touching the ground. I got the red set.
yup.. they'll do that at a regionals... in my conversations at the tamiya track today.. i heard they're more strict in canada!

and they're very strict at Nationals...

back to the TA05 thread... has anyone used any of the Mercedes bodies with their TA05? any feedback?

I ran the Audi at our TCS on a borrowed EVO 4. The body is pretty good and the wing can take more punishment than you would think. The rear deck of the Audi and the Mercedes has the dimples to show where the regular racing wing can mount.

Just wanted to sure..

Do we need to use the 48mm swing shaft for front and rear when using the LW Reversible suspension arm?? Or is it just for Rear only?

Up late? This is normal for me kid! hehe.. Yeah, I ran the 05 today. It was okay, but on that parking lot track, the rear end is very loose. Tons of front bite there. I'll work on a setup later for it. Gotta get it ready for TCS next month....

Ran my TA05 last night with a mabuchi motor in it geared at around 4.88 and yup the stock rear right diff outdrive busted. What a drag! can't wait for the aluminum diffs.

104/48 moving pretty good... Diff busted after a few passes, so couldn't comment on the temp but I would imagine it would have gotten pretty hot if I had run it for 5 minutes. It was a pretty cold evening for So cal though, so who knows.
Have a few friends going up to Fremont for the TCS from down here.
