i know, jk.

installed an XBR on my 05R last night. the unit is just a little too big, so i might need to put it on 1/4 inch risers to clear the "tub wall". or could i just shave down some of the "wall" to get the clearance i need?

I used some thick 3m foam tape to clear that little lip in the bottom of the tub.

seeking some help.....just purchased a new TA05 and running standard running gear 70T spur and 24T pinion with a orion method 17x2. Ran today and after 5minutes motor starts smoking and is really hot to touch. Track I run on is flowing, with a couple of tight sections, but I'm unsure of gearing (spur/pinion combo) to use for this motor, or in fact say a 15T motor that I was thinking of geteting. Can anyone suggest a balanced set-up for someone who doesn't race, and is not going to cause motor to over heat/smoke in the future.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

why don't you just have two sets of motor wires, one for the buggy and one for the tourer?

Does anyone know if any other brand "inner hinge-pins" fit the 05R?


Stock ones bend pretty easy and just looking for options outside of Tamiya

I had the same problem with the TA05R. I found out the main issue lies with the initial design of TA05...

It is design to accommodate the old TA04 arms which are much wider than the LW reversible arms. Look at the nos. of spacers require you will understand... I had swap back those LW rev. arms to the old TA04 arms and no bend hinge pins since...

The old arms are much tougher than the LW arms...

That theory would be plausible IF the same thing didn't happen even worse with the older arms and on the older cars. The arms are just plain strong and when you hit something hard enough...something is going to bend somewhere.

A good friend of mine had a problem bending hinge pins on his Lazer and he cut up an old hex driver (Losi, Hudy, Racers Edge, etc) and used the shaft, It's really hard stuff. You'll probably bend the pivot blocks (BTDT) and or arms then...that's not really cheaper though...so I'm not sure if you'll be better off.

really? i've never seen anybody bend their pivot blocks. they seem pretty tough to me, but they are aluminum....

I also have problems with dots and boards jumping in front of my car so I do bend pins, driver design problem! (Using old style arms)
I found that the old EVO pins fit the 05 and their 50% cheaper. So I bought two sets for the price of one!
Just my2$

Probably the cheapest and most available root is to buy drill blanks from a tool supply store. The diameter for the old arms is 3MM. I don't know about the LW susp. as I have yet to run it. I believe you can get a dozen blanks for around$5 or $6 and cut them to size. They are much harder than the stock hingepins.

They both (STD and LW) use the same hingepins.

nice.

I ordered TC5 hingepins. They are 3mm diameter but about 5mm longer so you need to cut them also. For about $3.60 you get 4

The number of spacers required is so that you can change your wheelbase to suite the type of track you run on.
