maybe. tamiya is using a soft material for their spurs. even their pinions are soft. and to think tamiya always produce tough products.....
A few small stone caught between my pinion and spur made small grooves in the centre of the teeth of both of them... well at least it still works.

yep! mine too! sometimes it even makes a sound if a pebble is in between the teeth. im on the process of making a cover. its just made of cardboard. nothing special. just to cover the gears. i just wished tamiya had covered it more though. by the way, dont cover the bottom hole coz that is where the pebbles exit!

That brings up a question. Why are there holes at the bottom?

Yeah, you'll need these to add 2 more..

51211 3x5 Flat Screw (5pcs)

Although some spurs, like Robinson, won't line up 4 holes at a time, only 2.. RW and Xenon will let you use all 4 screws.

I had spur gear stripping issues and I covered the hole that exposes the spur on my chassis. I don't care what you guys think, but I haven't stripped a spur gear since

yup! i too covered the spur gear hole but i ddnt cover the other holes. i think that pebbles will bounce around the diff gears and go out the holes. theres a bigger % of them going out than coming in... IMHO based on experience.... i finished my cover for the spur n pinion.... it looks so crude ! but i guess this will work! id be using this only if i run on a not so clean surface... ill not use this in a race of corz!

I got the Lexus coming from Hong Kong atm. I'm excited because I'm putting my Losi in the closet and leaving it for outdoor running. What's the best anyone has placed with their 05 so far? I'm a huge 04 nut so this is very new to me and it will be hard to move on hehe.

Hey minijosh,

Just jump right in enjoy the 05, I was also a huge 04 fan ....no wait still am. Anyway you won't regret going with the 05 it's easier to find that sweet setup for the 05 and even if your setup is a little off the car is still good, I remember the 04 being a little unpredictable if your setup wasn't spot on.

I'm using a centre one way and I had to set the radio so the car has barely any brakes. If i did use brakes the car would spin out a lot.

here is a link for all you guys about one-ways...
http://www.rccaraction.com/articles/oneways.asp
IMHO, the use of one-ways depends on the track. u really dont need it in your car unless it is suitable for kind of track.

Will the TA04 spurs fit the TA05? I like my 64 pitch gears in my 04.

I only run my cars at a track. I was having spur issues (small pebbles)

Therefore, it is needed at a track in my case

Then again, only tracks in my area are converted parking lots. Cost for land is just terrible in California (it's not so great out west)

Tamiya make an 04 module spur with 105T for the TA05 part #53857 Here you go. The smallest of the TA04 04 module spurs is 112T IIRC, so it may not suit the TA05.
