Update on order. What do you guys think about the Tech-Racing option parts? Will the upper deck improve the chassis and its overall performance? I also think the Tech-Racing CF towers look alot more different. I also think they have their own shocks that you can buy for teh TA05...

Default [MOD] TRF415 steering arm on TA05

TRF415 steering arm is in same 2D layout with TA05 steering arm, but 2mm higher than TA05. When I first realize I can't put my TRF415 steering arm on TA05, I thought "God it's so TAMIYA" FEAR NOT! I got the modification done and now you can use TRF415 steering arm on TA05. PLUS even lower CG

DISCLAIMER: MOD ON YOUR OWN RISK!!!

1. You need to remove all the plastic column on chassis. Sand it all the way down to where steering column sit.

2. On front brace, remove all the plastic column. Sand it all the way down the elevation.

3. Put 5x3x0.7mm shim (#9805645) first, than secure the steering column on

4. Add 7.5x5x0.1mm shim on steering column

5. Put TRF415 steering arm on (of course, you need to mount the TA05 plastic steering plate on TRF415 steering arm first)

6. Add 6.7x5x2mm shim on steering column (#9804153)

7. Put everything back on.

8. You might need to adjust the shim based on how you sand the column. Try/Error cycle to find best shim.

9. Done

Beside you can now using TRF415 steering arm on TA05, save the money of buying new hopup. Once you finished, entire steering rack sit almost 2mm lower than stock or TA05 hopup. Who need TA05 hopup steering arm now?

What does the upper deck do for the chassis? Make it stiffer? I'm guessing its only good for carpet racing? And, the Tech Racing Oil Shock Set, anyone have a pic of em or are they like teh Tamiya Shocks? Also, the titanium screw kit for the TA05, are they shaped like + or are they hexed? I have associated tools and I'd rather get the hexed ones, does anyone know the part number for the tamiya hexed Ta05 screws? Or will the Tech Racing ones work?

The Ti and Aluminum screws are all hex, but they're metric 2.5mm. Associated are by the inch, so they're not a perfect fit. You'll be bound to strip your screwdriver and/or screws pretty fast, unless they do have metric ones too...

Otherwise, I advise you to get an actual 2.5mm hex screwdriver for the standard screws, as well as a 2.0mm for the smaller set screws, like droop, sway bar setting, and pinion gear. It's much easier to adjust those with the screwdriver.

I use a nice shiny aluminum handled set.. Gold for 2.0, Magenta for 2.5, and Blue for 3.5 (for my nitro). Hardened steel, has never skipped on me once.

Just don't use the associated ones.

All the screws in most top Tamiya kits are 2.0 mm for most of the screws, and 1.5 mm for all the droop screws, set screws and pinions.

2.5mm is oly generally used for motor screws in electric kits.

Yup, thanks for the correction, my bad.. I thought I was off when I posted it, but I looked at the screwdrivers themselves, they are printed as 2.0, 2.5 and 3 respectively, but I just measured them right now, and indeed that's the case.. heh..

Yeah, the 2.5mm I've just used for the motor, and my nitro engine (manifold and shaft screw), not much else, really, but still handy. But i'll still need that 4-1/2" allen key they include with the TA05 kit, as mine isn't nearly long enough.

I don't think you will need the 2.5 ...

I'm sure the 1.5 and 2.0 will be enough - I only use these sizes on my TRF 415 / 415MS / Evo IV.
