Speaking of short arms...

Guys,

I am considering to swap the current reversable LW arms for TA05R back to the old TA04 arms as I found out the LW arms have been bending a couple of those hinge pins

Comments will be appreciated. Thanks!

The shorts are normally found the EVO V... These are a great hop up for any Tamiya chassis....

Tip Off:

If you run short arms in the front and Long arms in the rear your car will get through chicanes alot faster. Its like running narrow suspension blocks!

You will need to make rear grip adjustment...

Some upgrades

I decided to go with the Aluminum Bulkhead, because it easier to work on. Plus you can lower the diff height for more added traction.

I got the Tech Racing Pulley to Lower the IR.(1.944 with Black TRF Pullies)

Ofcourse all of this ramp up the Price of the TA05R....But I like this car alot so its worth the Investment.


Somethings to think about.

If you have an aftermarket carbon chassis, then it might be possible. Otherwise, I am pretty sure it will only work on the TA05MS because the tub chassis doesn't allow a steering setup as low as the TB Evo V to be mounted on it.

The built of the ta05 (tub chassis) is different compared to the ta05ms or the after market chassis... So if you're planning to change your steering to like the evo IV's steering arms and link... Then I might as well tell you to get the steering set of the ta05 (tub chassis) instead... This is like almost the same because it is aluminum and has ball bearings already for steering... But if you have, what HI_808 said, then it could fit maybe... But for me, I am not sure about it though...

Does the TA05-R come with one weight of shock oil and four springs of the same rate or does it come with several weights of shock oil and several spring rates?

Tamiya always gives only one weight of shock oil and four springs of the same rate in their kits... But my first experience of having a one weight shock oil and three pairs of different spring rate is in the M03R... It comes with the soft, medium ad hard with the white coated springs...

I was discussing the TA05 and the TA05IFS this weekend at the track with a few racers. One of them was saying that the TA05 is not competitive foam on carpet. Do you agree?

I cant speak for running the stock chassis, as I run a double deck graphite chassis, but I have no problems at club level getting in the A on foams, the car felt dialled on them uber grippy, the back end would not snap out under full acceleration one bit.

The stock chassis is a bit heavier and more flexible, but I cant see it making a huge difference.

So it is likely that they will have one weight of shock oil and several spring rates since this is also an "R" kit.

Can anyone who has a TA05-R tell me what I get in kit in the way of shock oils and springs?
