all my tc4s and xxx-s would break arms or front hubs even if i just glanced another car. the ta05 is the most none breaking car i have yet raced. but you are right about the belts. my only complaint is i keep loosing the front lower king pins. i've thread locked , trying shoe goo now. besides that rock solid.

I found, on the stock belts, after the initial few runs, they have remained constant, and thats in 19t, I run them just on the tighter side of belt skip.

This helps in 19t, I totally agree

However, just to help anyone in stock, I found it helps a little if you run the belts on the slightly looser setting to help the rolling resistance of the car. dont overdo it though, or you will get the same belt skip/flip problem.

thats where my belt tension is, if I make it one notch looser it will start to skip, thats the only way to run a belt.

Sounds like good advice. I was shocked to find out the blue aramid belts stretch just about as bad as the stock belts. I am on my fourth set, 3 stock sets, 1st aramid

Default Only adjusted belts once

I've been racing my TA05 with the blue belts for almost a year. Carpet in winter, asphalt in summer and only had to adjust them once. Maybe I got lucky or have no clue what I'm doing. I'd go with the lucky as the first two carpet races I was 4th in the A main and got 1st yesterday. Although our club now broke out the 13.5 cars from the 27turn this weekend so two of the guys I finished behind the first weekend are now in a different class.

TA05 is very reliable, I took a few hits this weekend and didn't break anything, one was a head on as another car jumped a boarder in front of me. Everything just kept on working though.

are the stock plastic outdrives on the 05R strong enough to handle a 3.5R?

Does the TA05R come with the blue diff outdrive rings? If so, they will stop the outdrives from stretching (common after time on hard acceleration with fast motors). Im not saying that with the outdrive rings it will stop them from breaking prematurely, but they would help.

I think your best bet is metal outdrives for anything very fast (esp. a 3,5 )

Is a front one-way and a center one way good hop ups for the TAO5R? Should they be one of the first hop-ups i should look at?

They will not work as the motor position is different than in the regular TA05 among many other reasons.

pinions and spurs?..... need some help, i'm running a 05 and i'm wondering if they can run 64 pitch..... or do they have to stay with the metric 48 pitch?.. there's more of a range with 64 pitch stuff isn't there? The car is stock standard at this stage as it's still brand new and hasn't been raced yet. We actually have sort of invented a new class of racing here in new zealand and you can check it out on our site (www.xrcr.co.nz ).
any help would be appreciated to stay ahead of the competition

cheers

Hey Grunta nice site, interesting cars you guys are running down there. Do a search on gearing within this forum, and you will find a bunch of posts.
