I agree the steering has a little play, but I had shims on my first 05 and just put new ones on my 05R, but without them it doesn't seem to affect the car.

I totally agree on the screws...they should have included steel hex screws.
I had to dremel-out about 2mm from the chassis sides to get my standard Futaba PCM receiver and Novak Cyclone TC to fit flush into the chassis. Anyone with TCS experience know if they would consider this "chassis lightening" for the GT2 class?

I agree that the steering rack is sloppy. I was thinking about getting the CF link because the bearings might tighten it up a bit. Anyone have this part? Does it help?

I would think as long as it doesn't enhance the cars performance they probably won't care.

The carbon link desn't do anything for the slop...the slop is in between the front brace and the bearings in the steering. The posts that the bearings slide on to are about .5mm longer than needed and you just need to shim that out.

I'm surprised that the issue of electronics space pops up now and then.

I managed to fit...

-My KO 2173 in with only removing the needed ear. I didn't have to remove anything on the other ear or file the chassis. And if you use the kimbrough med servo saver(without predrilled holes) then you wont have to do anything with the servo saver or chassis at all.

-My Novak Xxtra is HUGE. Easily one of the biggest FM receivers on the market. It fit flush into the chassis with room to spare behind the servo, and room to spare side to side. I can't imagine how big a receiver would have to be not to fit.

-As for speed control space, I always figured that if the GTB and LRP Spere could fit in there with no problems, that just about anything could. I knew the Tekin G10/11 wouldn't, but a Keyence...wow.

If the 05R uses the same chassis as the original 05, my BIG electronics fit just fine w/ the exception of trimming an ear off of my JR9000S servo; my Keyence fit just fine too

That Special Edition inparticular is 'short'.. To fit the proprtion of the Special Edition Body..

My guess is that the TA05MS will be similar to this... but not 'short'..

Here's some update for the TA05MS, it is translated from Japanese.

TA05 and TRF415 it sets motor helicopter loading site to center almost, adopting the upper 2mm thick, [rowa] 2.5mm thick carbon double deck. Looking back characteristic and the good quality of the throttle response of TRF415 where TA05 is superior it was compatible at high dimension. Furthermore the front and back wide pitch pulley, equipping front one way and the aluminum motor mount etc of cantilever center shaft specification, this chassis kit was finished in the TA05 series strongest machine. Residence player complete supervision before ●TRF - As for center pulley direct type - As for damper stay also front and back 3mm thick carbon make - Front and back common high accuracy aluminum make bulkhead - Equipping the aluminum make steering wheel arm

So the same as TA05R except: carbon twin deck chassis and shock towers, aluminum bulkheads and motor mount and a front one way.

That'll cost as much as a 415msxx!!!

I bet you many parts are new.

Steering (most likely the EVO5 type), Motor Mount (Porsche 934 Type), Damper Stay, etc.....

I hope the upper deck is lower than the Porsche 934 as that one is quite high (higher than TRF415MSX)
