I have no problem running the 4800 lipo without any modifications to the chassis, just turn the strap upside down.

I've always used the carbon strap, but the stock strap will work flipped over (it's designed to be used that way with stick packs).

You can leave the ribs in the chassis...but I like my CG as low as possible...and it lowers the pack 5mm so....

Default TA05 Questions

I bought one of these off of ebay, and have some questions which I can't find answers for in either the documentation of the manual or as a reply in this thread.

1. My car came with a center one way, and I'd like to convert this to a standard layshaft, because I'd like to run this car with a solid axle in the front. So what parts do I need to make this happen?

2. I'd like to be able to change the rear toe in from anywhere between 0.5 degrees and 3.0 degrees, depending on the surface condition. Since this car doesn't use spacers like an Xray, I'm guessing I need either multiple suspension holders of different widths or different rear hubs. So what are the parts I need to make changes to rear toe in?

3. I noticed this car has pretty limited steering throw, about 10 degrees for the outside wheel and 15 degrees for the inside wheel using maximum ackerman. It seems to be limited by the turnbuckle ball end touching the bellcrank steering arm at maximum extension. Is there a way to get greater steering throw on this car?

Default I THINK THIS IS THE IFS NSX

If you look at the wheel wells there is a difference than the prev. NSX's

That's cool.

The older (2005 and below models) SuperGT NSX doesn't look as low as the current model. The 2005 (?) ARTA NSX I had on my TA05 used the lowest holes on the body posts, so scale replicas of new lower profile NSX aren't possible to use properly without the IFS setup.

Check the way that the steering has been assembled, if it is in the outer holes on the steering knuckle you will not have any lock.

Layshaft question should be answered with a look at a manual. Toe in is changed by blocks but it depends a little on what suspension parts the car is running.

Heres a link to the manual, all the part numbers should be in it for you to change back to stock parts

http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/rcmanual/ta05.pdf

I have a lightweight centre shaft, it saves a few g if you want to buy that instead, the p/n is 53915.

I don't THINK so...but you might be able to adapt it.

Here's a TA05 adapter.

Square has also complete Sets of Titanium Screws (für TA05, TA05R and TA05IFS). These screws are 100% identical to the Tamiya ones.
