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?

thanks first to all of u, this thread is great.
If your planning on getting a TA05 and you want to race. Get the TA05R. The only people who aren't getting the R, are those who have already hopped up their current TA05.

So if your starting from scratch and just getting into the car, go for the R. From RC champ, it's a huge bargain.

OK I have a gearing problem. I've done plenty of searching and I can't seem to get a clear answer as to the correct pinion pitch for the "0.4 module" spur gear. From what I gather, it's 48p metric, right? Is that the same as, let's say, a Robinson 48p or an associated 48p or am I wrong altogether?

I also found this TA04 0.4 spur gear set that includes 112, 120, and 128. I think the 112 tooth would fit in the TA05 chassis but anyone try the larger ones?


Ultimately I'm just trying to correctly gear my CO27. The package lists other vehicle rollouts with specific gear ratios (ideally around 1.2 rollout). I tried to figure the TA05 with this 0.4 gear but, alas, I thought I'd just risk getting flamed by one of you guys and ask the question that has probably been answered 50x in this thread alone but yet I can't seem to find a clear answer:


*** What should my ball park gearing be for a 105 tooth 0.4 spur on the TA05r on a medium tight parking lot with a CO27 stock motor be

Thanks again, you guys rock!!

Actually the .4 module gears are, if I'm not mistaken, comparible to 64p gears, not 48p. And if you have a 105 .4 module gear and it actually fits on the car, then its definitely not comparible to 48p.

And if your trying to get a 1.2 rollout, and I assume your running rubber tires, then you should be shooting for a 36-37 tooth pinion. And a standard 64p pinion should work fine with your .4 gears. I've used module gears and standard pitch gears together in the past with no problems.

Hope this helps.

Tech Racing from Japan have presented a new conversion kit for the Tamiya TA05 chassis, called the TA05 Athlethe. The conversion kit will be available in Japan around the middle of this month and will see for around 18500 yen. Although very much for the Japan market and one of many TA05 conversions, perhaps it's worth taking a closer look at the Tech racing kit? Read on to find out why!



Tech Racing is one of many small specialist after market RC companies in Japan, known for their high quality parts, mainly for Tamiya kits. They also make their own touring cars that are fairly well known in Japan, but very rarely seen outside the land of the rising sun. Their latest touring car is the MY07 Medusa that replaced the earlier MY05 model during last year. Tech Racing is however definitely most known because their logo appears on the Tamiya TRF415 boxes, one of the most successful touring cars of the past 3 years. The logo is seen on the boxes of all TRF415 versions, from the original 415 to the latest MSXX version.

How come their logo is on the Tamiya boxes, and Tech Racing decals are included with all TRF415's? This is because Tech Racing was consulted by Tamiya when designing their next generation touring car in 2003. The TRF415 was developed in cooperation with Tech Racing and finally released early 2004.

This is also the reason we should perhaps look a bit closer at the TA05 Athlete. If we are interested to find out what the next Tamiya TRF belt drive TC will look like, it might just be a good idea to look out for what Tech Racing are doing. Definitely if you look closely at the MY07 as well you could see some ideas that will find their way onto the TRF416. It is fairly well manifested that the MSXX will indeed be the last in the line of TRF415 versions. This has been more or less confirmed by a number of sources close to Tamiya.

Considering this a TRF416 can be expected to debut sometime during this year. With Tamiya as well as the other Japanese manufacturers putting a lot of effort into the off-road class this year with the worlds in Japan, the TRF416 project could well be a bit delayed compared to what we would normally expect, but it would still be surprising if the 416, or it's prototype, was not seen during 2007. Of course, it is not known if Tech Racing will be consulted for the 416, so this is just speculation.


TA05 Athlete

The Athlete conversion changes quite a few fundamental things on the TA05 chassis as it is intended to make a TA05 chassis more race-worthy. The biggest changes are to the weight distribution with the motor moved much further back into a similar position to the current high-end TC's. This also allows the battery to be moved closer to the centre-line for a narrower chassis.

Much attention has also been directed towards keeping the centre of gravity as low as possible. The motor mount is a clever new design attaching the motor in a way not seen on any other TC yet, that allows the motor mount to be very low. This in turn allows the use of a very low and long, symmetrical upper deck, similar to that on the Xray T2'007. Another purpose of the long upper deck is also to improve overall grip.



The drivetrain has also seen some attention with both the centre pulley and belts being Tech Racing designed unique parts. The centre pulley is aluminium and larger than the standard part, with 2 teeth more. The belts are white low friction soft belts.


Specifications:

- 2.5mm carbon fibre high grip main chassis
- 2.0mm carbon fibre super long upper deck
- New development motor mount design
- Duraluminium 18T direct drive center pulley
- Tech Racing super soft low friction belts
- Aluminium parts light blue anodized
- Possible to use stick pack batteries


Overall it looks like maybe the most potent TA05 conversion to date with a few interesting and innovative design features.
The TA05 Athlete conversion is scheduled for release on April 16th in Japan, and the price announced by the manufacturer is 18500 yen.

Is there a website for them?

Perfect, Thanks!

I thought 48 sounded wierd for such a large spur. The thing that threw me off were the specs on this pinion set from Tower:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...2&I=LXTG10&P=K
It says it's - Pitch: 0.4 M (48P metric) ????

This is the other set of spurs I mentioned:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...2&I=LXWB91&P=K


Anyways, thanks for the info!
BTW, I also found the "Gearchart" link that is among these threads..very cool!

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.

i want to Know this too! please chime in

It may be a replica of Maezumi's TA05 as shown in the TA05 Perfect Guide book. From what I can tell it had carbon fibre shock towers, one-way diff, center one way, carbon fibre battery strap and blue alloy motor mount.

It's pretty much a hopped up TA05R ...and I just got my TA05R too

Where did you get this list from - is it a kind of late April Day's fooling (too good to be true if they are re-releasing the legendary 4wd buggy HotShot!)?

I mean very interesting stuff coming, but couldn't find anything from web-sites...

And any clues about schedule?
