Has anyone here had any trouble with the stock chassis warping. I've had mine since July and this week I finally had to swap it out. It was bowed 3-4mm in the center. Ride height checked 6.5mm at the front and rear, but failed inspection (4mm minimun) in the center. I run rubber tire/brushless on carpet and prefer the plastic chassis feel. I never run the motor above 140F. I just can't believe I wore a chassis out. I want to go cabon fiber, but I want to wait for something Tamiya. If ya run it hard, you wear it out I guess.

Carry on...

Try This! Much better. A little more stiff!

Does it matter what suspension mounts are used to acheive the degree of toe? For example for your front toe is 2 degrees. Would it matter if I used 1B and 1XB, 1A and 1XC, or 1X and 1XD since they all acheive the same toe angle?

I thought about it, but I figure when I did, they'd come out with a sweet cf chassis. Then I'm stuck buying that one on top of the carbon one.

Hi,

I have the Graphite tub and a aftermarket graphite chassis on my TA-05's. so far I like the Tamiya tub better. I run foam on carpet mostly stock and 19t. I bought the aftermarket chassis mostly because I thought I'd need the extra room the my GTB. but it all fits into the tub chassis.
you should be happy with the graphite tub chassis.....unless you really like the looks of a two deck graphite chassis.

Thanks

Hi CarKing,
I have tried various combinations of Fronts 1B-1XB, 1XA-1XB, 1B-1A bridge type (this is a stable setup using standard reversible arms IMO with the Tamiya Subaru B4 bodyshell) and Rears 1XD-1B, 1XB-1D. Well I have noticed the slight change in length of the Front-to-Rear wheelbase (measured from axle to axle), sounds weird but it does alter a slight bit the Front-Rear wheel lengths. Also noticed the roll effect from each change to the sus-arm setup while driving into and out from corners.
Cheers.

Hey Juan,
Those will only work if:

1. You have the Lightweight reversible suspension.
2. You already have Tamiya Universals (CVDs) or the stub axles for the universals. (51094 and 53500)
3. You should really only run them in the back as the rear axles don't see the stress the fronts do.

Good luck,
JV

Hey Andrew,
Don't confuse inboard/outboard toe with the toe you actually measure at the axle. You can run 2 degrees of outboard toe up front, but still dial in 0 degrees of total toe. As for the rear, don't forget that your rear uprights might already have toe built in. The standard plastic uprights that come with the LW suspension have 1 degree of toe-in already, so you want to compensate for that with your suspension blocks.

Regards,
JV

Well...the TA05 once again proved it's worth taking home 2nd and 4th (brushless foam class) against some fearce competition at one of our biggest races of the year! If anyone has questions as to whether this car can compete on carpet with foams...don't worry...it can

Hey guys, I seem to be at a loss with my TA05 this winter, running rubber and carpet, 19t.

I have the 3Racing chassis, stock suspension, CVD's, TRF shocks, Carbon shock towers.

The car just don't seem stable mid corner, always wanting to slide out on the rear or hook up on the front. I have taken the front one-way out and put a centre one-way in, with a tight front diff, it has lessened it a bit but it still does it.

Any tips, or if any of you have a setup sheet for a well balanced car, would be great.

Im looking to get into rc racing, stock class and the ta05 sounds alrite to me. I found one for sale, the following is the description

The kit is built standard according to the tamiya manual, never been driven. Everything is built & brand new. Comes with a tamiya sport tuned motor instead of the silver can. Does not come with a body shell. Whats needed is batteries, esc & shell to complete and race. Will give you the box, manual, spares left over from the kit, box, the radio 2PL (only one servo which everything is on the car).

All that for 165 US $. Is that an alrite deal? how much am i looking at to get it rtr? This is a pic of the car in attachments. What stock speed would i be looking at with that motor? Would i be better of getting a team losi xxx-s for 290? Help me out please. Cheers
