The spool locks the front wheels so it might be easier to control given the massive power of your Mamba. That's probably due to the fact that you get better braking and more stability because of the lack of differential action at the front wheels. I suggested running two diffs because spools are known to cause more wear on other parts.

Who wants that BLING BLING parts?

If I can't make the gear ratio for the 4.5R the 05R will be in my back garbage if anyone wants it :P

I can get anywhere from about a 4.00 to a 9.00 with my R, so I'm not sure why a 4.5Novak would be a problem.

From what I have run and read in the past using a 4.5R you would generally be somewhere between 9 and 10 final drive. Me personal I start conservative and closer to ten then gear up. I almost have my car finish but have heard that I cannot gear a 105/23. That is where I would start then keep going up a tooth on the pinion until I felt the power/runtime was right.

gearing right at 9 might be a tad bit too high for the 4.5R. I think it would run but might thermal.

I think I may have gotten a really smokin' deal.

RCmodel had the 05R on their web page for USD$169.95. I e-mailed them to see if it was on the shelf...he e-mailed back in like .0002 seconds that it was. I ordered it, the order went through...it's shipped and I have tracking out of HK...I go back there today and it's USD$199.95 now.

Assuming it shows up and all is good, it's 199 shipped. That's a good deal, right?????

I got the link from this thread, but it was even cheaper than it said it was on here. I wasn't really that serious about getting one...but DAMN...

RC champ have it for about the same price. I can get it shipped to the UK for 95 ($190). Very good considering the car cost 180 ($360) over here.

They're $250+ here...$249 at Speedtech, $259 at tower.

Something about the "$169.95" deal drew my eye and sucked the money from my Paypal account...LOL

Default TA05-R steering

I just finished building my TA05-R and am a little disappointed it didn't come with bearings for the steering. Has anyone tried to replace the bushings with bearings vs buying the aluminum steering set with bearings? I'm looking for durability more than 'bling'

It's a great car and definitely worth the extra $ over the regular TA05 kit.
