Coming from a guy who went from the TA04R to the MSX...is there a reason to go out and buy a TA05?

To me, the MSX is amazing but I have nothing to compare it to. I am not looking to run Reedy, or anything like that. Honestly, I would like to run and win TCS.

Depends on the TCS class you'd want to run. There is GT1, GT2 & GT3, the GT3 class uses the silver can Johnson/Mabuchi motors only, & the GT2 class uses ROAR legal stocks, while GT1 uses ROAR legal 19 turn motors, & if you want to run GT2 or GT3, then you can't use the TRF 414's, 415's, etc, but the TA05, 04, TB02, TB01, etc.(the tub cars, in other words) are allowed in them(& if you really want, you can run basically ANY Tamiya onroad TC chassis in GT1)....

I just got one of these beasts and am looking forward to running in some of the TCS races this year... I had a couple of questions to get me started:

where can I find a manual and an available parts list? (soft copies would rock)

also what are the must have hopups in terms of performance and durability... bling can come later... (opinions welcome )

thanks and I look forward to reading all the insites on this super mega thread

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=58345 is the first place to go, not sure about printed copies though..

I'd grab Sway bars, normal 64p gears, front steel CVD's, maybe aramid belts, pretty well it... the front one-way/spool is your choice, depends on what you're running on..

I'd see about the Wide-pitch pulleys too.. the recessed covers keep the diff clean for so much longer, let alone the extra efficiency.

Welcome to Club TA05!

I've found out that the front and rear suspension blocks are weak and I've replaced mine with the 3 racing ones. They get rid of the tiny plastic spacers for your suspension arms. Looks good too all in blue.

If you run a 1A Bridge front with a 1C you will increase your corner speed.............

The little spacers you replaced took away your ability to adjust the wheelbase of the car..............

With the recent addition of the wide pitch pulleys to my car, I think I can finally say that the drive train on my TA05 is equal to that of my MI2 that I used to have.

And anyone who has felt the drive trian on a MI2 knows that its quite an accomplishment for any belted car to get that smooth.

Only problem is, I think I'm running out of stuff that I wanted to put on my TA05!

Doing that I'm increasing front toe-out, right? In which sense I cannot accomplished the same results only with proper adjustment of the turnbuckles?

Or we're talking about back settings?

Thanks a lot,

It's actually inboard arm sweep...and in my experieince it smooths the car out and makes it easier to drive.

The kit comes with them built into the blocks like the 415's do. Not too sure if you could really tune the wheel base like that but the suspension on my car now sits better.
