Usually you refer to the front Assy as C hubs/Uprights and Knuckles(Which houses the bearing) and the rear assy as simply Rear hubs/Uprights.

Ah, I emailed Champ R/C and they say that there are no 0 degree rear hubs.

Part #: TAM53807 alum. 0deg hubs.

Remember that those were originally designed for the 415MS / Evo IV but will fit your TA05 if you are running the lightweight suspension.

Here is more detail:

If you running TA05 stock suspension, TA04, TRF414, TRF415, EVO3, TB02 suspension parts will work "except" swinging shaft.

If you running LW suspension, TRF415MS, EVO4, EVO4MS, TB02R suspension parts will work "except" swinging shaft.

Hope this help

Aw crap... How much is it for the LW suspension? 80 dollars? Hmm.... So that setup that killruf said was only for the 0 degree hubs... Anyone have a good idea for a one-way, asphault track? Also ttso, which swingshaft would I need for it to work with the LW?

42mm 100% no work, 46mm works mostly, and 48mm 100% work

LW is about 80usd. But stock is also good for asphault. LW is not really 100% must.

If the only parts supply in your LHS is LW suspension, go with LW suspension.
If the only parts supply in your LHS is stock suspension, go with stock suspension.
If LHS has both, pick the one you prefer
If LHS doesn't have both, re-exam if you really want a TAMIYA car without LHS support first!

Stock is better on durability. LW is better on setting ability (and slightly more agility). I see not much performance difference if you set them correctly. LW, indeed, has more settiong option, but also, easier to break.

So, check your LHS support first. This is what really matter! You will never want to play a car without LHS parts support.

ttso-if you or anyone else gets a chnace-can someone throw a pair of 28mm foams on the LW suspension and see if it fits? I know the evoIV steering knuckles make it a no go. Does that mean all LW suspension pices suffer the same fate? No foam tires?

All lightweight suspension sets use the same steering knuckles... not that I run foams, but that is not a good news I guess.

Well, my LHS only carries Traxxas, AE, Losi. SO yes that is a problem but, I can always order online Also, I've heard bad reports on the JRXS, I would get it but, not sure, i'm some what set on the TA05. As for the TC4, I wanna try belt ^_^. I guess with the C-Hubs i'll have to go along with the 1degree with the setup that KillRuf gave. with those suspension blocks that Satoshi use's how much kickup does it give? Like I said earlier I was told that with 4degree total is good for One-Ways.

Ray the easy fix as Fernando used at carpet nats is to use a Pro4 knuckle and a 1mm shim, as the pro4 knuckle is a touch shorter in vertical height. I think you also have to use an old style outdrive for the CVD also. Look back at the 415 thread and there was a pretty detailed, easy fix to make the LW suspension work with Foam.

I guess i'll just stick with that set up then.. 1 degree rear upgrights.. What about the front c-hubs and upgrights? If I calculated right... 3.5 in the rear and i'm not sure what stock front c-hub is... Is it ok if I do it this way?

Simple, if you go with 1degree rear hubs, just switch the rear block from a 1B to a 1X. This will give you the same 2.5 rear toe.
