415 using 48.5mm, now TA05 using 49.7mm? I guess that means wider wheel base range than 415, not to mention if using LW suspension. Anyone can confirm that?
im using the lightweight suspension...AND im using the stock susp. arm pins.

whoever mentioned the sway bar mounts.. mount them on the outside using the ball stud connector. it wont hit the dogbone.

i have my sways mounted on the inside for the TB-02 with no prob. but with the 05, it'll hit the dog bone.

(Can anybody tell I got nothing to do at work? Man, can't wait to hit the Tamiya track tomorrow... Chris, what's the plan?)
I just left the the one end without the c-clip (furthest end from the spur).. the aluminum mount seems to hold it all together in place without problem, and I just used those 4mm shims to adjust for play. How often will you actually need to swap it out? And if you do, it's easy to unassemble without that one clip. Those are a huuuuge pain, especially ramped up against bearings that have their own grooves on the sides.

With the center one-way, should it be totally free-wheeling from the rest of the drivetrain, or with a bit-o-tension? I shimmed it to have the least bit of slop, but rolling forward the front wheels still just moves the back belt, if just a smidge. Those fibre rings around the pulley seem to give it that friction...

In typical Me form-I opened my mouht-said I was coming to the Nats this year, bought a TA04 and now I am not going. This years been too crazy and expensive. Already been to Disney for a week and China for two weeks and then to the Sizzler in WI in three weeks. But yes-next year I will run GT1 and make the Nats-unless I just opened my big fat mouth again and told another lie (not that I know its a lie-yet).

That a good or bad thing? My TB-02 wasn't too bad, but this one's a world of difference. I can free-roll mine across the room.. and I haven't cleared out those tamiya bearings of the grease yet..

Heh.. yeah, Ray, I guess all we can do is talk about it while at work... but, Friday has come, the weekend's not far, and don't you worry, once our maiden journeys have been made around the track, we'll have even MORE to talk about monday

..probably on the topic of replacement parts..

Default O5 is here

Back from Canada last night eh. And now I'm pouring over my big box of goodies. Oh theres the doorbell......... Speedtech goodies too. Now if I could have remebered to get some 46mm swingshafts .


Has anyone weighed it yet. I'm guessing its going to be a bit heavier than the 04.

The body feels like a LW version.

Tom, it's really a heavy car. I don't think you'd want to use it for GT2 at nats... Either or, Keep us posted on your building and running progress...
