Supra66, look back maybe 2-4 posts. There is a post about suspension blocks, and I believe the Team Associated Ti Turnbuckles will fit, just use the tamiya ball cups..

3) To replace the front suspension mount, I will need one 415 type A mount and a 415 type A bridge mount. Is that right?
4) Anyone has the measurement of the required turnbuckles in the kit?
1) They come with 2-degree toe-in hubs.
2 and 3) I guess you'll need Bridge-A front, and B rear, or anything with a 1-letter difference. The front mount on the rear end, and the rear mount on the front end have to be bridged, so A and Bridged-A will do for the front unless you want to go into the X mounts for a slightly shorter arm length.
4) They are: 4 3x28mm turnbuckles (camber), 2 3x23mm (steering), 1 3x32mm (Servo arm)

Thanks again for the quick response. Is the kit wheel hub 4mm or 5mm?

4mm, I'm pretty sure. I just bought the aluminum 4mm blue clamping ones right away, and they're great.

If you could give me one good reason (can be more than one) of why you would buy the TA05 over the other cars, what would it be?

I got both the TA05 and the JRXS, you can't really compare the both of them as they're more than $100 apart.

The JRXS is like a piece of art (depends, some hate it) has almost everything you need to race out of the box (Just add new alloy battery holder and front shocks mod) and I just love the center battery placement (just like the Yok YRF2, Kyosho KX-one and HPI Pro-3) tuff as a tank.
I would love to race this baby except for the fact that Losi spares where I live is quite lacking.
It'll also be a shame to scrape the lovely CF chassis on tarmac so I guess I'll only race her on Carpet.

The TA05 is loads cheaper, drivetrain is more free and just as tuff, I was quite surprised at how well balanced the fully loaded chassis is (with GP3300 cells) as compared with my other centrelined battery cars including the JRXS.
Wenching on the car is also easier due to the design.
Most importantly, Tamiya spares in my area is super duper available thus this would be the car I'll race with most often.

Cheers !

Thanks for the input.. It seems as if i'm totally opposite from you. The LHS in colorado only carry Losi, AE, and Traxxas... So I guess I should go with what ever lhs carry parts for... Although my lhs dont carry any parts for the JRXS yet. THey still have the TC3 and XXX-s.

Sorry guys, I think I made a boo boo on the Satoshi setup. I was reviewing the magazine and I noticed that the pictures didn't match the text. They labeled it wrong!! Anyways, the arm spacing for LW suspension is suppose to be like this... the numbers are the shims in mm.


Front /Arm/3/3/3/_____________/1/3/3/Arm/2/ Rear


Sorry...

In case anyone is interested...they've officially arrived in the US. I got one from Speedtech yesterday. I don't know if he has any more left from the pre-order deal, but he might.

It's good to live near Speedtech.

ok, after a full weekend of racing this is how the 05 stacked up....

saturday, ran stock class in the winter champs, which is control rubber. qualified 6th in b final, finished 2nd , last time went in a big stock race was lucky to get in the d final, so all good there.
sunday was the third round of a club chalenge we have, raced in 540 class as have all year, qualified 4th in A final but went backwards in finals to finish 5th still one spot higher than best i could do with my x-ray fk04.

so all up very happy with this car and am looking forward to getting more setups to try on it.

oh the car was stock except alloy threaded shocks and a few spring sets, used kit setup and 40wt losi oil, blue tamiya springs all round. tried yellow all round but was a little soft for the track, did try 35wt in the rear for one round but lost too much steering, good if need more rear grip.
