Why 2mm higher? because there is 1.3mm extra column on chassis. If we sand it out.. it MIGHT work. I haven't decide if I going to mod it or not.
If that column is all that stands in the way then sanding the column down might work, though you might have to put a thin shim on it once you have flattened the column so the bearings can ride on the shim, otherwise they'll just end up working like bushings.

Default tcs rules

From the Tamiya USA site.

2. Any manufacturer’s electronic speed control, radio equipment, servo saver, antenna, antenna mount, pinion and spur gears, spur gear adapter, ball bearing, tire inserts are allowed

Certain classes have specific gearing rules but the GT classes are open.

Junked the .6 module for a nice 64p rock muncher.

Default End of the day

Ok, it's almost 1AM now, today's build ending.

Something very odd need to be noted:
The diff seems too narrow to fit in bulkhead. I see at least 1mm space from pushing diff all the way left and all the way right. Checked over and over and nothing is wrong, strange problem. Same problem happened on center pully, about 1mm space from pushing pully all the way left and all the way right. Seems it need lots shim on diff...

Some comment: the chassis is too soft, the damper tower is way-too-soft. Front and rear brace also soft, so does bulkhead. The only thing that's not soft is.... motor mount. I'm going to buy Tech Racing CF set see if that make the TA05 a bit more solic. I really don't like soft chassis..

in GT3 i ran it (shhh!) a bit, switched to blue springs f+r, as well as yellow sways, B3 tires on freshly resealed asphalt. Qual'ed 2nd, but finished 3rd overall, as well as 5th in Mini....

hehe.. you sneaky guy you! how did the diffs hold up since you ran in it in 19T? since they didnt have the rings... i thought they might start to expand.

sup Chris....

didnt notice any expansion, and they seem to be a harder material than, say a TB02 stock diff. worked very smooth all weekend....

about the only thing i upgraded from kit was the 46mm cvds and TRF shocks(borrowed from another car), and i got the Aramid belts when i ordered the kit.

installed the std suspension, as the track there was 2.5" pvc, with a "Widowmaker" chicane taken at mostly full speed....

RC TA05 High Precision Diff
Item #53849

----

Any chance that fits the front of a 415?

Just thought I'd ask in case someone here owns both a TA05 and 415.

nope... unfortunately, both the 05 diffs are offset.

c'mon Chris... toss in a 19! mine was a fairly old EA C2, with loads of power, seemed like.

Thanks - I take it you mean NEW axles - Evo IV / 415 MS
OLD axles - 415 / 414 / Evo III etc.

Cheers.
