I just disassembled my ta-05 to clean it. Now the parts are as if I just took them out of the box.

Default EVO 5 ARMS??

Has anyone ever tried to put EVO 5 arms in the front or rear. I know that they fit on a 415 but I was wondering if it would also work on a TA05.

I run Evo 5 short arms on front and 415 long arms on rear. The steering is slightly better that way on SIR's track.

suspension blocks are weak

Has anyone else found this out while racing? I've been driving very well, keeping up with the 2 415's at my races but I keep breaking them. Last time it was the front and I upgraded to the 3racing now it was the rear. Also my gearing is way off. My car is super hot even with the large motor mount heat sink and with a heat sink with a fan attached. I'm running stock motors and I've tried 22-24 teeth and it's still hot. Am I going to have to upgraded to the other pitched spur to get my motor to run cooler?
Oh my set up is C027 motor, 3racing heat sink w/ fan, 4300's and a lrp v7.1 esc underneath my Lexus SC430.

First you should run the aluminum suspension blocks. Tamiya makes fine ones that hold up well for me. What is your gear ratio? Take the number of teeth on your spur, divide by the number of teeth on your pinion then multiply times 2.25. Last but not least what type and size of track are you running? If the motor overheats gear down.

I think I can only run the 21-25 pinions on the stock spur. Is this correct?

I wouldn't know, I switched ti 64 pitch as soon as I got the car. I like 64 better because it allows for more fine tuned gear ratios.

Here are the gearing and rollout numbers for your 78 tooth spur. We normally shoot for 6.5 to 7.5 with stick motors:
Pinion Spur Ratio Rollout
27 78 6.50 29.54
26 78 6.75 28.44
25 78 7.02 27.35
24 78 7.31 26.26
23 78 7.63 25.16
22 78 7.98 24.07
21 78 8.36 22.97

So...

I have been waiting...and waiting...on the new JRXS Type R but have been contemplating a TA05. I am looking for a less expensive car because I am in need of many other RC related items. If I decide to go with the TA05 this is what I would initially buy:

TA05: $125.00
Tamiya TRF Shocks: $69
Universals: (2) $60
Spares: ~$50

So it will cost me approximately $300.00...now for rubber/carpet will I need sway bars?
