Hi guinnes.s

The steering knuckles and suspension arms are from the Lighweight Suspension set (#53899), this set also includes aluminium hex drives, wheel axels, bearings and polymer rear uprights. If you do get the set you will need 48mm or 46mm swing shafts for the front and rear (I went with steel 48mm front and alloy 48mm rear shafts). The length will depend on which suspension mounts you will use, if you are using the wider suspension mounts then use the 46mm swing shafts. The rear uprights are the aluminium Evo ones (1 degree, #53874), though the 0 degree upright can be used. The angle of the rear uprights will also depend on what selection of suspension mounts you will use.

The white sponge on the ball links is to reduce the dirt/gunge which can get onto the ball surface. This should keep the ball joints in better condition for a longer period. Those particular foam rings are Associated parts.

Just for shnitz-n-giggles, I rebuilt my TA05 with all the plastic kit bits. Is anyone running their car like this? I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but it seems like it will have a bit more mechanical grip?

Default I need help putting it all together!

As I mentioned previously, I got my hands on a used TA05. It's in great shape, but I do need a few parts to get it rolling.

Today I disassembled the chassis, cleaned it up, then reassembled it. To get it race ready, I still need:
  • complete front diff
  • front universals
  • front and rear belts

I downloaded and printed out the TA05 instruction manual from the Tamiya website, but the part numbers are not listed. It would be nice if the manufacturers listed the part numbers next to the part in the instruction manual.

I need help getting all of the parts required for the diff. The instruction manual doesn't list universals at all. I've seen the blue belts listed online, but I'd prefer to get the standard black belts.

If anyone knows of a complete parts list that would be nice to have.

Last question... are all of the TA05 parts specific to the TA05, or does it share parts with other Tamiya kits?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
