I bought 1B and IC toe blocks for my TA05. Do you guys know the part # for the ball thingy that goes in the hole of the blocks that holds the hinge pin? Sorry, this is the best way I can describe it.

Thanks in advance,
Mark the tamiya noob

I have one question regarding the stock dampers.

I have just finished building the dampers, and to my suprise the damper springs arent long enough. Theres a gap of "air" of aprox 2-3 mm before the spring "hits" ground on booth ends and starts putting pressure to it when being compressed.

Are they suposed to be like that?
Any thoughts?
When mounted to the car, will they have to be compressed before attaching them to the "car", and thus getting rid of the "gap" naturaly?

Im lost, never seen dampers that have this gap before.

Ps. I started in this end, since I have bought a couple of other things I need before I can start building the rest of the kit.

Yes, they are supposed to be like that. Even with the "gap", the shocks are a bit long for the mounting position, and a lot of people are using the Aluminum Damper Retainer - 1mm Down Type (Part #53876) to drop the chassis down closer to the ground.

use the clips for the dampers. there is a clip on included in the kit. this is used to adjust the "compression" of the springs. hope this helps.
I tested my 05 yesterday with a 23T tamiya rz motor. man it was fast. the asphalt was not so clean so i covered the gears. I twisted my front belt during the test. maybe it was too loose. gona tighten that. it was fun coz the there some loose pebbles on the groud. loose pebbles+fast acceleration=DRIFT!!!!!

I just got my clear blue parts and alloy steering arms from Stella Models on ebay. Those blue parts really are awesome looking. Not sure if I want to install them.

Default C027

I have a club race this weekend. This will be my first time to run my TA05. I was wondering if you guys could tell me what should my FDR be? I will be using CO27 in the sportsman class.

Thank you in advance,
Mark
