FF is Front Front Suspension Block. FR is the Front Rear Suspension Block. FR is the Front Rear Suspension Block. RR is the Rear Rear Suspension Block. You can change all 4 blocks to anything you want. So we just use FF/FR or FR/RR to simplify things.

You cant mix the F/R with the F/F the F/R is made with a hump to go over the belt and the same for the rears..............remember?

Sure ya can... depends which blocks you are using though. Not unless if you are talking about the kit blocks... I use the 415 blocks in mine though. ABridge for RF and FR.. hehe... And of course my FF and RR are just totally messed up. I won't mention them here..

Racenut:

Hi,

I think it was posted as the MFG being Crest. from Japan.

A KO:

Hi,

I agree with you about that chassis. but it's a little to pricey and I'd want one out of 3mm graphite for carpet/foams. maybe if I get another TA-05 and some extra money.......


Da_Cookie:

Hi,

We most always run the Parma Alfa. the ProtoForm G6 seems better on our bigger, flowing tracks tracks. we used to run the Losi Lexus body but can not find it anywhere now.

Have any of you raced the Tamiya Subie "B" body on carpet yet???? (foams) kinda looking for something different to try.

Thanks

I have tried the G6 asnd found it lacking on the rear, I was toying with the Tamiya saloon shells, reading the TA-05 guide book (well, looking at the pictures and hiroglifixs) they seem to cover a few handling changes pretty well.

What are the current needed hop-ups for the TA-05? I got anti-roll bars, TRF shocks, CVD's and springs.

Hi,

for carpet I did but all the graphite chassis parts from Tamiya. I kept the stock arms tho. for asphault I still run the stock chassis with the kit braces. I have some non TRF shocks (still Tamiya) and sway bars. I also went with CVD's (again Tamiya). I have been running a Parma Alfa indoors and outdoors. I most always run foams as rubber tires just are'nt ran much around where I live.

Thats about it for starters or driving in the low-buck-club. Well it is what I got anyways with my new 05

I did also get the front 1-way, which depends on if you are used to driving with it or not. . .

Lately I have added more parts, . . .

I am looking at weight loss at the mo, as it is a porker and using the latest IB4200 cells, all that weight on a tight track is going to kill the motor, so.... was thinking

Titanium axles
titanium screw kit
Hard graphite parts

That lot should drop the weight a bit.

Tamiya B4 and B4-2.0 shells, how do they handle, they indoor or outdoor shells?

What motor are you running that you need 4200 batteries??
Loose some weight by using 3800 batts.
The carbon chasis and parts are going to be a large weight savings. the motor mount should be a bit too.

Hi,

Yes the TA-05 is a little heavy. I went to Stainlees steel screws as I got them from work. I am waiting for the Tamiya L/W motor mount and have thought about the Ti stub axles. as for a two deck graphite chassis....... I'm waiting for the right one to come along.

I have no track time with the Tamiya Subie bodies. I haven't even seen them excpt in a thumbnail someone posted on another site.
it's pretty much alfa's, G6's Stratus3.0 c and some 2.0's.
where we race. and track size is 42(+/-)x80 usally good layouts.

we won't be back indoors until August/September. then we'll be getting ready for Vegas and then Cleveland.
I'll have to wait untill then to see how things go.

Thanks

Latest gen IB4200 cells are the ones for Stock and 19t, low IR and a high AV means your gonna have some fast motoring. They ain't being bought for the capacity, only the raw power.

I to am tempted by a carbon chassis/top deck, as it gives more room for electronics and cooling fans.
