So what you mean is.. the ride height doesn't have to be exactly the same.. the more important thing is the balance (weight) of each corner is the same.. is that what you mean?

Well from what I have seen on the scales , the left front corner will be lighter than the right front when you get the rears even. You wont get the 4 corners the same.

Tamika makes a 105T. but buy the precision stuff instead. better parts for the money.

I used 64 pitch, although I did remove the 112 spur that I use on our smooooooooth indoor asphalt. Yes I said 112, it does stick out the bottom of the chassis, but it never seems to rub.

I ran 64p out there. But I did have my car lock up on my warmup lap just before the GT2 Amain started. It stopped dead in it's tracks. I ran to the car and pulled on the spur. And kept pulling on it til whatever locked up the car broke free. I see no evidence of rocks on the spur or nuttin. Total mystery for me. And I'm glad I didn't give up. TQ and win...

hi, would like to know if the reversible short suspension arms will work with the TA-05 and what will be the length of the dogbone 42mm or 46mm, also what is the advantage of using the short arm rather than the long suspension arms thanks and sorry for too many questions

The shorter the arms generally will allow the car to react quicker or transition faster. The narrower the wheel base the more grip the car will have. But, it does'nt always help in lap times, to have a car that react's faster. It really depends on what kind of track your racing on. As far as what length dogbone, probably the 46mm like the evo5.

I have been using the LW Reversible suspension hopup on the first build of my TA05, so I haven't really tried the kit suspension arms. I did this because they are interchangeble with my 415MSX so i don't have to carry as much parts when I go to races. The dog bone is 48mm for the TA05.

I know they are coming, I would say yes at the club level but no at the August race.

I want to go Lipo and be done with it. Lighter, more power and runtime. Is there a downside?

I got a question, can the gear cases from a TA-04 work with a TA-05? I saw a thread on another forum that said they did this, but I just can't believe it. I'm thinking of going with a TA-05 and retiring my 04, but if I can save alittle money switching then I'm all for it. Also will any other parts work from a 04 to a 05? Thanks.

What about wheel hexes? stock plastic or the aluminum? 4, 5, or 6mm? What on front and what on the rear?
