Hi Geppetto,
Thats a big OUCH!!! I am shocked that those standard parts costs a bomb! Why don't you try your LHS or ask the ppl around at the track to see if they have spare ones for sale.

The axles used in the LW susp are different from the old stock ones. The ones you need for the stock have a"edge" to it. The LW axles are rounded. This is where the axle touches the bearing when inserted fully. If you look at the 2 you'll see whAT i MEAN. Stock is flat then goes to a 45* angle then straight down. LW axles are flat then rounded.
Hope this helps.

  • 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!
Hi,

I've got a spare diff (in new parts) and belts as well. As I only kept them as a spare I could let you have them at a good price. PM me if you are interested.

Regards,

Saz

Saz: Thanks for the offer, but I went ahead and orderd a new kit at only $129.00. In addition to getting a Tamiya body, I'll also gain the benefit of having spare parts, new bearings, and 2 new diffs.

I also bought a set of used FL coated Tamiya shocks that are in excellent condition.

My goal is to keep my spending to a minimum. In that regard, I'm still under $200. That's a far cry from the amount of money I spend for my Yokomo BD and LCG kits. I'm very pleased.

Exactly as I would have done. It's way too expensive to piece a diff together.

Yes cause the pin for the spur mount reains the shaft, and the bearings are retained by the motor mount

I would run in the 5.2 - 5.5 range and check speed, and heat of the motor after 5 minutes.
if it is not the warm, go closer to 5.0. If it is hot move toward 5.7
I race indoors on asphalt, and our gearing is usually anywhere from 4.8 - 5.5
No rules yet for TCS here in the USA yet. Soon is what we hear.
