For tighter, technical tracks use a spool
Guys,

Any good spool to recommend for a TA05?

Thanks!

does the CF chassis dissipate the static charges better than the stock nylon chassis?

Does anyone have a link for the TA05R manual? I can't seem to find it on Tamiya's website.
Thanks!

yes, but if you don't want to buy one, you can add that jumper wire from the front chassis brace to the center motor mount

You planning on getting one? We don't have one online, but let me know and I could get a copy to you. Maybe your post office would go a little quicker this time. Chris got his stuff in 2 days!

05R is a good deal, esp with all the hopups it comes with.

jose, you making plans on attending the Seattle SIR TCS? you should try to go man, they have a fantastic track up there. (think indoor tamiya)

I'm *strongly* considering this. The good thing; my wife is totally for it too!

don't bother with the jumper on the new chassis. I haven't had any issue since I've made the change.

i just tested out my car with the CF chassis, center one-way unit, rebuilt diffs and shocks, and a new 19t motor. i went from the stock shock oil (40wt?) to 30wt hoping to get a more plush ride, but i am getting the opposite effect. the car feels "jittery" whenever it gets up to higher speeds, and especially when i turn. maybe my diffs are still too tight, cause it is really not looking setup well. maybe it's just because i am running it on an unprepared (rough) asphalt neighborhood road, with really crappy HPI X-pattern treads (no bite at all). any suggestions as how to smooth it out? maybe go to a softer spring? i am using the stock white (yellow) springs.

CF chassis makes the car a lot stiff. you should try softer springs to give the car roll that it needs. And when you feel comfortable with set-up, you'll see that you drive a more predictable car with CF chassis.
