If your running 46mm swingshafts are you also using the LW arms? I just thought for you to use the LW you need to be using the 50mm or the F201's, Please enlighten, so I know what to buy.

You can use the 46mm shafts with the LW, it will work, but under a hard hit it _may_ pop out being a little closer to the edge of the cup.. 48mm shafts are recommended (50mm must be a typo in their original statement a while back) to keep it in the outdrive at all (or most) times.

But what if I'm not going to use a LW then I guess the 46mm will not pop out cuz prolly the stock arms are shorter, And if I decide to use a LW then 48mm it is, do you have the part # for this?

Yup, 46mm are fine for the regular suspension. They seat in very far into the cups, be it the diff or one-way.
If you want to stick with the 46mm with LW, you can also buy the X series of suspension blocks, as they'll mount the arms a little closer to the chassis.

48mm Swing Shafts for Assembly Universal Shaft Set - Item No.53836
Only comes with the shafts, you'll need the other parts from another kit, such as the 46mm

Hello , wich suspension blocks use instead of the original plastic parts. i use original suspension .
Caution , for those who buy tech racing lower mount top deck , you can't use it with tamiya aluminium transpondeur mount ( or you need to cut one side of the carbon deck) jean-michel

This getting more complicated everytime,Jam-ehz is the x series susp. blocks listed in the hop-ups portion of the TA05 manual , cuz I hate to ask for the Part# everytime I would need it, anyways just in case its not there can you post it too.

Cheetae here is a great reference for hop-ups and part #'s

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/cat...p?sub-id=72000

You can look up all of the suspension blocks along with the upcoming hop-ups too.

I just bought a TA05 Mercedes a couple of days ago north of Toronto (Pinnacle Hobbies), so they are "here" in North America right now.

Clarification please?

1. If I'm going to use the lighweight suspension set for the TA05, I have to use only the XA,XB,XC, and XD blocks in order to use the 46mm swing shafts?

2. If I want to use the the X,A,B,C and D blocks which came with the original TRF 415, I will have to use the 48mm swing shafts? If yes, can I use the F201 swing shafts instead?


Thanks.

1. yes
2. not really. to be safe.. use the 48mm. i used the 46mm with X through D blocks with 46mm swing shafts and it was fine.

Dan Garber... please call me when you have a chance (lost your number)

Well ran my fully hopped up TA05. It's a porker! But I will say I'm already on pace with it compared to my Yokomo BD and EvoIV. I'm about 3 seconds off my fastest time. Car was nice and smooth. And it seemed to have good steering and corner speed. Gonna work with it some more tomorrow as I go to another track to race.

One problem I do seem to have is chassis tweak. It's kinda hard for me to set droop because of this. I'll have to mess around and find a different way to measure this.

Anyways, off to bed. So far I like the car alot! I'll be leaving my Yokomo at home tomorrow and give this car a good shake down!

Its funny how people keep saying its heavy with options installed, a mate of mine just built his, with all tamiya options, and all tech components, his car was 1518 grams, with a weight limit of 1500 i think thats pretty impressive.
