I'm headed to the TCS race this weekend in Memphis. It is an asphalt parking lot race.

Anyone willing to share their basic asphalt set-up for a TA05.

My car has all the normal hop-up stuff.

Thanks,

No...I don't to start with...if I feel the car leaning too much I will use either the red or yellow front bar only.

Looks like extra mounting holes for the rear posts to locate where the "stock" shock tower from the TA05 would be. That would allow people to go from a TA05R or stock TA05 and use the same bodies without adding extra holes. (?)

It gives you 2 position for mounting the body mounts.

Man, that car looks sweet. Come next winter, I may end up owning two highend TC's!

Did anybody else notice the dirty little trick that Tamiya seems to be playing on original TA05 owners? No? Well take a look at the servo mounts in that picture. On the original TA05, we had to cut off the lower ear of the servo on one side. Well on the MS, the only way to mount said servo, is with the ear that we had to cut off!
