Can share with us what are the upagrade you had install on your stock TA05? I am seriously considering a TA05. My LHS are not bringing anymore TA05R as they are only keen in getting in the TA05MS for now...

Get a replacement screw set with a 2mm hex(lovely titanium one ), the stock phillips screws are rubbish. I bought the lightweight center layshaft, carbon battery plate and the carbon center plate(couldn't be bothered with the factory blue alloy one).

I'll be looking at the front and rear carbon shock towers and possibly the motor mount next.

First runs went OK, it lacked steering and was rolling all over the place. Predictably the kit oils and springs weren't cutting the mustard. I'd gone with the 4 deg hub cariers too which might need to be changed to the 2 deg ones. The front belt tension wasn't enough to stop it almost tearing itself apart as it rubbed against something in the front bulkhead so there was blue dust everywhere

Killed another V2 as well, fortunately not one of my Oscar Jansens

Any one know how many weight reduce will Tamiya alum motor mount give compared with stock one? Also, the graphit chassis vs stock chassis.

I'm going to run with TCS, only Tamiya option allowed (otherwise I will go for Kawada conv kit)

Does anyone who have the R kit know why it came with one set (2)of lightweight swing shafts and one regular set? The lightweights went up front in the instructions. I just thought that was odd.

It's for Stremph !!

I have since gone to all black dogbones, titanium links, and hardened black ballends.....the blue stuff is nice but it has no stremph !!

black steel dogbones up front for strength for the one-way or spool.

Lightweight alum in the rear.

Chassis and motor mount are ( 9 grams and 5 grams) 14 grams lighter.

Default Foam Tires for TA 05

I need help which foam tires to get for the TA05 on an outdoor asphalt track. The others racers use nitro shoes in 35-40 shore.
What are some recommendation from all of the TA 05 users. Which tires fit the best, which ones to avoid? Has anyone used GPR tires?

Thanks Rodney

Interesting, I thought chassis/motor mount would save much more than 9/5grams.

Guess I need to find other way to save some weight out from TA05R.

Yeah, I actually did assemble it that way, I just misremembered when I made my post

If anyone has a sec, I have a questions thread in the rookie zone about touring and electric RC in general.

Help a noob out!

anyone still know where to order Kawada (TUB501) or 3racing CF chassis? Checked everywhere - from eBay to dinball. I emailed RC-champ and they only had the Flip (?) blue CF chassis. I guess with the MS coming out, no one is carrying any cf chassis at all. I spent almost $250 in hop-ups from a bonestock TA05, and if I do plan to sell it there is absolutely no way I'm getting back for even just the hop ups (my chassis is in MINT condition as I only played with it once.) So i've decided keep going for the whole 9 yards.

also, I posted on the last page if anyone knew what Tech Racing's "slipper diff" does? My car is being setup for drift on ABS tires - TR states its for drifting so I was curious as to what it does.

any help is greatly appreciated
