I would definelty say that kit isnt necesary. the Ta05, with a few hop-ups is a great intermediate racer. Exactly what its intended to be, if i was planning on buying a Ta05 and then paying a whole bunch of money to make it more like all the other TC's on the market, why buy the ta05 in the first place?

And i wanted to ask, are those Aramid belts more durable then the stock Ta05 belts? Ive got a preatty well hopped-up Ta05,and when my belts eventually do fail (they seem to be very durable thus far) should i buy the aramid belts?

So I am looking for an asphalt, medium grip, rubber tire set-up to get me in the ballpark. I'm really wanting to know if I should use the one-way or a spool. I have 3 years experience with a spool and little with a one-way.

Lets hear it!

Depends on the track and motor. We run year round on indoor asphalt. For silver can you want the car to carry as much speed as possible so you run front and center one way full time. With other motors it just depends on the layout. Nothing beats track time for setting up your car, so I would say try to practice on the layout using multiple combinations and use the one that works best.

I'm not all that sure myself, but I'm not planning to change my car that much from how I run it on the carpet here at home, & I don't have a front one-way or spool for my '05 so I'm just gonna run the front diff, but with a center one-way, & probably keep the damping as is(which is like 50wt with 2-hole pistons fronmt & 40wt with 2-holes rear, & yellow springs all around). I'm hoping the base setup on it will be close enough that I can just fine-tune after I get there(mainly playing with sway bars, droop settings & roll center)....

I'd say dual oneways for silvercan GT3 and maybe GT2 stock and Spool for 19 turn, since you'll have the power to make up for the loss of drivetrain freeness. (Is that a word)??

Thanks for the input fellas. I guess I'm leaning toward the spool because for stock-19 turn- and mod it is the fastest way around our track for the past 3 years. Plus, yeah, I'm very comfortable with it. Thanks for your help guys!

Grizz----Hope you got your sleep in already! 2 weeks till Memphis boyeeeee!

When I run a spool I use a B block in the front to sweep the front arms. I do that plus I run the short arms in the front with the standard in the rear. You'll have the steering of a one way and the punch of a spool.

i wonder if Tech Racing was also consulted with the design of the Porsche 30th anniversary edition of Tamiya they said that it is based on a TA-05 platform also

Do Tamiya sell spring sets for the car? I'm sure I saw a milky blue set or something. What would you recommend for rubber carpet racing?

Also, I'm buying a TA05R next week from RC Champ, what spares do people recommend? Are there any weak parts that are likely to break? I may as well get them at the same time as the car to save on shipping.

im gona be asphalt racing and carpet racing this car. i also have a xray tk05.
i want to have 2 cars one for each. which one is better for each?

and is the ta05r worth it? or should i just get normal ta05 and hop it up? which way is cheaper? are all the extra hopup parts in the ta05r needed? i know the shocks are for sure but what else is needed to make the car run jsut as good as xray/415? can the 415 and ta05 compete with each other? or should i just get a 415?

TA05R ALL THE WAY!!!!

Especially since you've mentioned that you're going to be racing it. Otherwise, you're going to spend a LOT more money to buy all the hop-ups you get on the R version! That being said, I have found myself already dumping another several hundred on the R before I even run the thing once. But other than tires and a body, you really don't need anything else to compete with the TA02R.

I've only had mine for a week and have yet to run it but I'm sure others with much more experience (and investment on hop-ups) would say the same.
