it allows you to fit bodies with lower front ends.

sorry i don't know if i asked this before, but i've been away for a while...

how well does the stock TA05 chassis fit newer cells? in all the reviews and such like they're done with 3800 cells, but i don't know if my 4500 grepows will fit. they're enough of a squeeze into my E10, and that chassis is less than a year old.

thanks
joe

JoeOL- Shouldnt be a problem. At worse you will need to file the ends of the cell slots on the chassis, if the cells are too tall you can unscrew the cell bodyclip mounting screws a few turns.

I also still have a BNIP stock ta05 chassis if you really screwed up

Thats 64 pitch. I usually run stock and 19 turn motors, so my pinions are around 26-32 with a 104 tooth spur. Get a few and try them out.

NO!!!! The Tamiya 105T spur is .4 Module NOT 64 pitch. The 64 pitch almost fits but not quite and in a short time will wear out the spur's teeth.

However, you can replace the .4 Mod spur with a 64 pitch spur and open up a broader range of available gears to use. (This is what I and others I know have done, the stock Tamiya spurs are just gathering dust.)

its the same spur gear they include with the trf415msxx, I put mine aside and used a 72t 48dp spur gear on the layshaft.

Not sure how good it will be with a 13.5 but we'll soon see

The rocker arm front suspension also provides different leverage and geometry, thus giving you better handling in theory. I say in theory because if you don't know how to set it up or utilize the IFS front rocker arm suspension the car can be worse off or have no benefits whatsoever.

on medium traction carpet set a low spring rate and you should get the car turning in nicely, but with a secure feeling too, providing the back end spring rate is not much different to it, 1 or 2 rates softer max.

13lb and 11lb springs I would start at, and work around that kill the anti sway bars, they do nothing to help imho on any ta05....

hey guys, i've had my ta05 for a couple months now, but i wanted to know if anyone has the tech racing chassis out there. i just read there were some problems with the 3racing one a few posts back and wanted to know if anyone ahs tried the tech racing conversion? also, has anyone tried the penguin or kawada conversions? 3 racing seems to be the most widely used.

thanks, here are the pics of you like. ((don't mind the mini, he's jealous))

I have the 3racing chassis under the TA05-R and it is one stiff ride. Great on carpet but too stiff on concrete. Softened it up a bit and it is starting to respond better.

The fit and finish were very good, even the anodizing looked good.

Now I wish I can say the same about their steering knuckles, broke one clipping a tube in the chicane.

i have had the 3racing version 1 chassis and my dad still uses a 3racing version 1 chassis for conctrete and it is really nice if you have the right suspension set up


i think the tech racing chassis is very nice because the motor is moved furthur back but it is more than twice the price

+1, the 1st gen 3racing chassis was too stiff for me outside on tarmac, I couldnt get the car feeling great. I did as best as I could (even in high grip conditons) but it just felt like something was missing, and I put that down to the chassis being too stiff.

That said, it is an awesome chassis though on tight indoor carpet tracks. It turns in REALLY well with some foams Rubber tyres work well too with it indoors I have found, but on larger tracks with sweeping corners.
