Default My 05 hop up reviews

Blue alloy motor mount from Tamiya. Fits perfect in place of the non colored version. No real improvement because both are finned, just nice and blue.

Tamiya blue aramid belts. They look great in blue and are suppose to be stronger. They feel better than the stocks ones. I had to adjust both ball diff holders to different holes. In the instructions you match them up, if you put together a TA05 you know what I mean, but my holes are different and there's enough slack to make the belts bounce. No skipping under extreme braking.

Tamiya 53915 Lightweight Center Shaft. Haven't ran it yet but I installed it. You remove the original and you don't use e clips anymore so make sure your screws are tight. Saves weight, I guess.

I destroyed my stock ones on accident a few hours before I had to race. So I ordered from rcmart and picked up the 3 racing parts. Installed them with the titanium suspension arms from Tamiya. I really like the mounts because you remove the little circles that go to space out the arms from the mounts. I got 0 degree toe in so it keeps the stock set up. Looks great and will be a bit stronger than the plastic. It's written right on top of what degree they are and which one goes in front and back. A small carbon fiber part came with the bag. Not sure what it does but mine installed perfect without it.

I also got the 3 racing alloy hexs for the wheels. Nice and smooth was the install and wheels fit perfect. Since they are allan keyed down they will say on nice and tight even when the wheel falls off.

This is just my 2 cents of the hop ups so far. So far so good, I'll see how the car handles on Monday night.

Hey leomax001,I tried to install my 4600K mamba max in the stock chassis but the esc it too wide. You car looks awesome. Is that a graphite chassis? Did you cut the corner out to fit your esc? I like the c/f look on the motor and esc.

leomax001,
Did you have to do anything special to fit that ESC in there? I always thought it would be too long.

You'd either have to cut out the back of the chassis or make a small mount to fill the space between the esc and the bottom of the chassis. That would work but it will mess with the cob just a little bit.

It was reccomended to me to use the 2 hole pistons with 60 weight oil in my TRF shocks for my local track but I bought my TRF shocks used and only have the 3 hole pistons and 60 weight oil. Is there a way to compansate for that. Maybe some black orings or something above the bladder in each one??? Any help would be appreciated. I fnot I will jsut have to wait an get some 2 holes. I only have teh black pistons that came with the plastic oil filled shocks and I see they are different than what is used int eh TRF's. THANKS

Yes, the Platinum Lipo will fit. I've not seen a Cyclone S run yet, but I've had my TA05 for a year now and that's a world record for me! lol The TA05 flat out hall ass and runs with the big dogs, no question.
