What size 48dp spur gears can you run in a TA05? The stock one is 70T, how far up can you go?

78 is the corresponding 48 pitch spur to a 104, which is the largest most people run. Bigger than that and it starts poking out the bottom of the chassis...

Get this...Darkseid and I are running brushless 4300 and have to gear around 90/40 (64p)!!! That's almost 5.00 drive ratio!

Personally, I'm very happy using a 104 tooth spur, I like have the finest control over FDR that I can get(& the more teeth in the spur you have, the finer control you have, though it can limit how tall you can go).....

108 spur is flush with the bottom of the chassis. I've had no problems before running a 108 on asphalt. But right now I use a 104 RW spur. Very nice and quiet. Also another tip would be to run 4 hold down screws for your spur. I think the kit is usually 2 screws. This warps the spur slightly. Switch to 4 screws and the warping goes away. This is very evident when running RW spurs.

Thanks for the help with the carbon reinforce part identification Shift! If I had a box stock TA05 to compare with it would have been easier.

I sold my 415MSX and bought this TA05 and this thing is dialed! I love this car. I am fighting a bit of a push in the high speed corners but that is it right now. Had it out for its first practice at Tamiya Saturday and it was amazing. Right now I just have to figure out what this body likes and what gearing to set it at. Right now with my Checkpoint 19T I am running at a 104/43 and it seems to work well.

Well after careful deliberation, I have given up the Evo 4 in favour of the 05. I have had my ass kicked enough times by one, and the best part of it is the price, how cheap are they!!!! I have added a few 3racing bits. Not better than the Evo 5 though, not yet anyway

It's hard for me to believe how many people jump ship back to the 05 after trying other cars. Tamiya did very well with this set up. Mine is mostly stock except for suspension blocks, 3 racing, and I love it. 3 racing chassis nib for now, might do it at work. Don't tell uncle sam.

Just finished building my TA05. The only original TA05 parts are the 2 screws that hold the spur on, and the 2 screws located inside the steering arms, the rest is either a Tamiya option, or the Flap blue carbon chassis kit.
Enjoy!

Juan,

What type of motor are you running and what size track are you running on?
