And is it me, or does the rear diff "half-cover" coming from that rear brace make it harder to put that diff in? Or am I doing something wrong? I've already notched it a few times..
With the Aramid belts, tension is tighter. I've adjusted my rear tension to be on the dot and the front to one mark from the dot.

I reposition the rear diff by gently sliding it at an angle into position and then pushing it horizontally to fit into the slots, it's easy once you got it.

I think the team associated heat sink with fan will look nice and is also blue in color.

Tamiya sells 10mm shims and I've added a 0.3 to each side of the diff. likewise shimmed the centre pulley shaft. ...no problems !

That's too bad. I was hoping it had less plastic parts and lighter drivetrain than a tbo2. But I'll see how it accelerates even if its heavy it might pull better than a tbo2.


Anyone know the yen price? Its somewhere on the box. I cant believe this would be cheaper than a tbo2.

As for "soft", indeed after everything on, the chassis flex is ok, but still no good for my standard. However, damper tower is really way too soft and there is nothing to fix it except CF hopup. Seriously I suggest everyone going to race TA05 get CF damper tower as a must.

That esc is very close to the motor.

Hm... This car will definetly be faster than a TB02, its newer, better design. I believe, this car can be competitive with any car out today... Maybe we should start comparing it with like, the 415, BD, Xray lol RDX...

Black swing shaft is LW suspension wheel axis (48mm swing shaft)
Blue swing shaft is old suspension wheel axis (46mm swing shaft)

I guess they were just too lazy to put out the whole pinion chart on the sheet. They wanted to make the 105T option look that much more desirable. Sure, you get a great range of ratios, but they can strip out a lot easier if you don't mesh them right... plus they're more expensive than the regular AV pinions.

Pulleys: 36/16 = 2.25 IR
Spur: 70T
Pinion Spur/Pin Final Ratio
16 4.38 9.844
17 4.12 9.265
18 3.89 8.750
19 3.68 8.289
20 3.50 7.875
21 3.33 7.500
22 3.18 7.159
23 3.04 6.848
24 2.92 6.563
25 2.80 6.300
Does anyone sell 48-metric 26+ pinions? It sure looks like there's enough mount space to fit larger ones than 25. Although our TCS rules limit the max ratio to 5.7, it looks like we may never hit that mark with the TA05.

Theoretically, we could see 3 more with aftermarket pinions...
26 2.69 6.058
27 2.59 5.833
28 2.50 5.625


I know people were looking for larger ones for the TB-02 and the 52T Spur... any luck?
Tamiya Makes a 26 pinion(their largest). Thats the biggest when it comes to .6module sizes. Kawada and Tobee craft makes .6module pinions up to size 30t.
Would the TA04 83t spur fit the 05? The 70t spur will really be nice on my other kits, I have a complete set of pinions from 15-30 .6module. I find it quiter than the standard 48 pitch. You could get the pinions at R10.

And also will the 04 Aluminum diff gear fit the 05?
Peace!!!

Seeing you guys makes me want to get one when itreaches our shores!!!
