If anyone is interested I can put together a small kit of parts to fit one of these to your own car. It will include 1x wire strap with eyelets fitted (red, black or white wire available), 2x cone washers (please specify purple or dark blue), 2x round head stainless hex screws, and some installation instructions.

Price is 5 sterling shipped WORLDWIDE. If you would like one please send funds by Paypal to [email protected]

PS Please don't complain about the cost converted to dollars etc., it is not my fault the pound is very strong right now! I really can't do it for any less and I am not trying to "get rich quick"

Thanks,

Dave
If the static build up is in the bulkhead why would a wire discharge the static when the bulkhead is already attached to the chassis? Is Tamiyas solution really a fix? Just wondering...

This is a version of KO's fix. I think the intention is to give the static a discharge route that avoids the servo, as it is metal-gear servos that are being affected. So the static will run along the wire (least resistance) rather than trying to discharge through the servo.

I have never had any issue's running the car on carpet or tarmac with rubber tyres, never, and don't intend doing static straps, I don't even do that on the 3Racing chassis.

I'm with Cookie, I just upgraded to the 3racing just because it looks good.

What spurs are people using when running the Novak 13.5 motor...rubber tires.

Likewise, I use the 3racing chassis and had not one glitch

Maybe it something to do with the electrics you install, or how they are installed?

I know a lot of you have had no problems and don't want to run a static strap.

But at the end of the day you shouldn't dismiss the need for one outright because...

1) Tamiya have released an official statement that static is an issue on the TA05-R.

2) I have personally experienced servo problems similar to what has been described in my TA05-R, and a couple of others on this thread have mentioned similar problems too.

So I'm running a static strap for peace of mind! I haven't just fitted it for a laugh!

The only thing I could see, that could cause the problem, is running the car with far to much roll, the chassis rubs the floor, static build up, but in ALL the years of racing, running static straps went out with the Bosscat (early to mid 90's)

I suspect it is actually the belt/pulley material and the interface with the centre bulkhead and alloy top plate that is the problem.

Because the carbon tub costs a lot more than a static strap! And I race on super-low grip surfaces where the flex is a benefit!

Lets skip that part and tell me what spurs are the smallest you can run in the 05R...

Or atleast someone post what spur/pinion combos they are generally using when running a 13.5R Novak BL motor. I bought a big 108 to run my 4.5R Novak BL and now need to know what spur to order to run the 13.5R.

Thanks.

hmmm, now I have run the yukky aramid belts and the stock belts, in stock and hard graphite bulkheads, and in alloy bulkheads on both plastic and Carbon Fibre chassis setups and never had an issue, at all. If there was a problem, it would happen to all cars, and not intermittent.

Only times I have had glitching, it has been spurious and not in this car, and usualy is resolved aroung refitting the reciever.

The only real issue I can see on the 05R is the aerial wire going through an alloy top plate... if so, ditch it.
