Not sure what it is about the TA-05 that has caused this - I think it might have something to do with the aftermarket stainless steel screws I have fitted, rather than the black steel kit screws I have always had in other cars.

Anyway, I now have a car that you cannot change the suspension blocks on (kit ones are working OK so not such a big problem right now, but it means that the 1E block and roll centre shims I was going to experiment with will stay in their packs for now!). Unfortunately when I need to change some parts I will be looking at the following scenarios...

At best: New screws after slotting/soldering an allen key to them.

At middling: new chassis after hacking it away (at least the plastic tub is cheap)

At worst: New suspension blocks, new motor mount, and possibly a new spur adaptor as well if that is jammed too!

Bugger.
I exchanged my screws on my TA-05 to the Tech racing screw kit. got it from Jason in Tokyo for 10 USD.
The Tech racing kit looks great, is more precise and they are more rough in the surface binding objects metter together.No more need for threadlock

quick question...this is my first belt drive car, how tight should the belts be? I set it to the kit instructions, but both move up and down about an inch.

Just stick with the kit settings to start off with. Then after running it, if you hear the belts skipping, then you can tighten them up one notch.

Just a quick look @ the MS...chassis, upper deck, shock towers, belts, motor mount, F/R bulkhead.........way too much $$$ to convert from R to MS. Tamiya really knows how to release new car 1 after then other...

Beside, what is the reason TA05R cannot be race @ GT1 class..? A little bit too heavy? I have seen fully loaded TA05 ran on GT1 class B-main..still plenty fast w/19T motor....

Redesigning the upper and lower deck of my 1:10 electric touring car,
I was surprised to discover the strange distribution of weight on the four wheels.( TA05 )

The right front wheel carrys 110 grams more than the others.

Re-designing the upper and lower deck, I managed to get an almost equal distribution of weight on all four wheels.
In order to achieve that, I had to move the battery more to the center ( always better ) an to the rear.

Testing the car it worked really well,
the car has en good balance and a predictable behavior on the track ( MACH Heemstede Holland ).






The car is based on an TA05 with 3Racing conversion kit.
I moved the steering posts and the center pulley post,
to move the steering and battery to a better place.
New upper deck one piece 2mm glass epoxy and a new lower deck 3 mm glass epoxy.


Still need some fine tuning, after that there will be an carbon final version.

Totally expected....still have 20% left to get my R done, but beside the weight of the R (compare to all the top end double deck cars)...I don't see the TA05R is just a GT2 or GT3 class of chassis, I mean it can be entry level but with some good setup, options and driving skills, it can be just as good as the other top guns......pretty good for a $200 car. (yes...it won't be $200 after some bling....that is true. )

I understand you like it ,
still need some fine tuning to the performance.
That takes a lot of track time.

I'm still not sure to make it a commercial product.

There are also a lot of 3racing parts which are not separate from the conversion kit available.

I can Invest a some track time on it... anyway, I have many parts from Xenon (practically a whole car) thus only in the need of the chassis... I dont like much the xenon one due it keeps the carbon braces on, Im making right now an hybrid with a kawada topdeck... will let you know anyway...

cheers,

The Xenon has a too high upper deck to my taste.

Yes, we have discussed this issue a month back, perhaps... So I just took out the chassis braces and put the upper deck on, but still waiting for some parts to finish the steering... and might end up using kawada topdeck, but that one isnt perfect as well... although better than xenon one...

in other hand, how much your chassis weight with 5 cell?? close to 1400?? Im strugling to reach 1400gr, but seems quite a challenge with aluminium bulkheads....

cheers,

Do u guys race or play BL on Ta05? I m running mamba max 7700 on my ta05r stripped 2 front uprights & 2 bearings in one practice session. In order to run mamba max properly I have to change to kawada 112 spur gear & 22t pinion. I set my TX to 60% EPA.

Its just too fast. I m practicing to race mod class, but seems that most of the guys use 415. Any experts out there willing to share?

I do not want to try aftermath chassis as I may race TAC. I ordered tech racing upper deck to avoid chassis warp.

Btw I m running front spool in my Ta05r & rear ball diff.
