The TA05IFS would be tempting just for running the EBBRO 350R.

No, it won't be, the holes do not match standard TA05.

So Tamiya are bringing out all the hop ups that 3 Racing made a year or so ago??

Nice bling, but from what I have seen, I doubt there'd be many real performance gains to be had.

That inboard suspension is intriguing though!

I also notice the MS has the provision for the MSXX Motor Air Duct!

from what i know most of the tamiya graphite tub chassis tweaked. maybe sort of defective mould? if the tweak is not so bad we can compensate it with droop.

perhaps it's the reason why tamiya didn't include it with TA05R?

On the subject of chassis "tweak", my TA05-R's plastic chassis seems to be a little bent up at the front? Only one race meeting on it, I wonder whether is the result of impacts (I didn't actually crash though), or something about the mould?

The centre section and rear of the chassis are not tweaked at all.

I have 4 TA05 tub chassis, 2 plastic and 2 carbon reinforced. All of them are mildly tweaked(about .5 mm) from day one. I believe that it is a problem with the mold, in particular where the battery cutouts are. This area needs to be reinforced. With that said, I have learned to live with this mild tweak by putting downward pressure on the tub on a flat surface and tightening the front and rear braces in an X pattern. I generally do this after each race day unless there were any hard crashes.

are ta05's suitable for the novak velociti 3.5r brushless motor or does it require hop up parts?

Hop-up parts are recommended.

You might want to have aluminum diff joint so your drivetrain can withstand the power.

Anyone ever tried boiling the tubs to "release" the tweak? Any success?

The Tamiya mould itself is most likely spot on, it is the different rates of cooling after the injection moulding process that will result in small tweaks on a large component like this.

Well, this is still a design/manufacturing defect. How come they do not take the shrinking of plastic into account ?!

TO ALL THE PEOPLE NOW DISCUSSING TWEAK...

This is not a new issue. This same discussion happened quite a while ago when the graphite composite chassis first came out. You would have thought the sky was falling the way some people were acting..."oh...goodness NO...its tweaked...damned Tamiya...I'm selling this chassis and getting a graphite plate chassis...oh...the horror!"

Its not a problem with the mold, its just the way its going to be. I've heard that both Tamiya and Associated(who have been doing the graphite molded tub a lot longer) say that there's pretty much NO WAY to mould those chassis, have them cool, and still not have one bit of tweak in them. According to them, it just can't be done. And from what I could tell, all the efforts to un-tweak them have had a only moderate effect or none at all.

So just compensate for the tweak with droop and move on. Read back on the thread. Not one person here who was already fast with the car, lost anything due to this mild tweak. Thats one of the advantages of a car that isn't built up stiff as a brick. A mild tweak doesn't leave you scratching your head all night and still lets you set up the car around it and go just as fast.
