Take Care
Just measured the standard plastic TA05 battery plate = 147mm (hole centre to hole centre).
I know this strap is exactely the same as the TB02 one. It also lines up with the holes on an EvoIV chassis, sorry I don't own a EvoV (yet).
I've had problems with tape breaking during races on the EvoIV and was looking at using one of these battery plates instead of tape.

There is no RC-Champ in english. You might try google translator otherwise, just figure out what you want an send an email. The instructions for overseas mailorders has a link on the main page and the instructions are in english. Shipping is silly fast too. 3-4 days.

Email with Champ is the way to go. Customer service is top notch. If you really must see the page in (somewhat) english, I suggest babelfish.

http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate...rUrl=Translate

What you get to see is only the tip of the iceburg. If you dont see what you want just ask.

I wouldn't call waiting a week for a reply to an email 'Top Notch' but once you finally get your total and send payment the shipping is crazy fast and the prices are worth the wait.

A week? Guess I've had a different experience with them. It's always been the next day for me.

Next day usually for me also. Im not going to argue about the quality of customer service w/ someone who had a bad experience.
I do know they only have two people working their international sales and how it sounds from my communication w/ them they are swamped. Also rc tech is not the best place to communicate w/ them as they do not check here that often.
I say give them another chance, like you said, its even worth the wait.

Again this is just my opinion

I'm gonna be buying a new set of B3's for the local TCS here and I'm wondering if I shoul use the +2 offset wheels or regular 0 offsets. The track is a high bite /technical set-up. I think someone here had commented on the width differences,but I can't remember. any info is appreciated!!--Al

I was reluctant to get one at first, but im glad ive seen the light!

I was even using the standard plastic shocks, TRF's are on the "to buy" list.

Skiv, glad you found some info here, I have sent you a pm on the adur forum too with a few bits of info

0 degree is what most of us run at SIR. They work well on our track.

the 2 or 0 will also depend on the body. As having the wheel further out you might not have room in some bodies for clearence. The 2 would make the car more stable, but might numb it up.

I got one a couple weeks ago. The chassis is very nice. I believe they are still working some stuff out and getting the instructions and stuff together for it. I would suspect it will be released soon.

Thanks for the info waOscar.
-The TB Evo 5 doesn`t have a Carbon Battery Brace/Holder/Plate. I was thinking about using a TA05, or a TB-02 or a TB Evo 4 Carbon Battery Brace/Holder/Plate.

I might have to do some fitting-work but it will(should) look alright.

Thanks

Take Care
