Has anyone ran a mod motor in the TA05? Any issues I should watch out for?

Without a doubt, THE best servo saver for the TA05 is the Kimbrough Servo Saver Mid-Sized w/o Holes.

Make sure you get the one WITHOUT holes. The reason why is that you will use the middle hole, and the one with pre-drilled holes has the middle hole too low. The one WITHOUT holes on the other hand just has hole 'outlines' which you can cut out with a simple body reamer. One of which is a middle hole that is higher up, and is perfect for the TA05 steering throw and will be just like if you used the TA05 stock servo saver.

To top it off, you wont have to shave anything off the servo saver to keep it from hitting the chassis. Basically its the perfect fit for the car. Trust me.

Rear belts can take a beating, make sure they are pretty tight. that will help.

??????? I was just curious. I have had my TA05 for a while now and participated in the TCS race in Wisconsin at Trackside but mr rear diff always seems to be slipping. I tightened it up but I don't want to have a lot of resistance either. I guess my question is should the diff be fairly tight or not??? THANKS

Try placing a small drop of super glue or thread locker on the thread of the lock nut. Should help stop the diff from loosening.

A diff that has not been properly broken in can also loosen.

Whats the best way to break in the diff? Ive heard running it on a dremel. For how long and what other steps?

I will usually install the diff in the car. Set diff to slip just barely. Run the motor at a very low speed or 1 volt power to the motor and apply some resistance to either tire connected to the diff you want to break in. Apply some resistance to each tire. Check diff for tightness again and repeat the process. It shouldnt take more that 2 min to break the diff in. This process will prevent you from overtaxing a new diff and seat the diff parts without extra strain.

I usually do 2 or 3 laps and then pull the car off and recheck the diff, and adjust as necessary.

Default Proper diff build

I have found that if you build a diff properly you will be able to tighten the diff almost all the way and still have great diff action. When putting the diff together I like to use AE diff lube and I use a lot of it. Generously apply to each diff ring and then fill each hold on the spur gear before inserting the balls. I will then tighten the diff till the plates touch the diff balls and then tighten it a half turn at a time there after. In between tightening it, rotate the diff back and forth for roughly 10-20 seconds at a time. Normally this takes 6-7 times of tightening and rotating and it allows the lube to get into the diff completly and to tighten it fully. I have never had to re-tighten my diff after it is built.

That is how I do it and I hope it helps!!
