Problem is with the spacers and pink sponge halves in place, I can't snap the turnbuckles in place (using the factory lengths).

So, I have either 2 options...

1) Skip the spacers and use the pink sponge halves, or

2) Skip the pink sponge halves and use the spacers

I chose option 2, but my LHS who races the exact car uses option 1. He said either is ok.

Which would you guys do and why?

I skip both.

Ran the TA05R today for the first time since december last year. Put it on the track and it just worked, didnt change one thing except for a fresh set of CS27's and managed two 3rds and a 2nd in the three finals. One 3rd should have been a 2nd due to getting taken out. Im happy to share the setup if anyone wants it, i raced stock on ashpalt.

Just a quicky. What's the largest 64p spur can fit into TA05? 108t, 109t?

I will be racing my 05R for the first time on asphalt parking lot this saturday. It is a pretty small setup that is quite tight. Should I stick with balls front and rear or put my spool up front? I've never tried my spool before because I raced on carpet all the time, but is asphalt the time to use it?

I believe that 105 is the biggest that you can use, but I have seen people use a 108 yet almost peaks through the bottom of the chassie.

On a really tight asphalt course, I think a spool would probably be difficult to set up well. A one-way might be better, but it depends on all of the other considerations (such as power, traction, precise course layout, etc.). I don't care for a front differential on asphalt because of the lack of on-power steering.

I would run a diff first, if its dirty parking lot, then my second choice would be a spool.

In stock , 27t I would run a diff
In 19t , I would run a spool

Thanks for the replies. I will be running CS27s, DNA2 with a CO27. Not the smoothest track, or the tackiest either.

When would be the optimum scenario to use a spool?

Spool is good when you dont need alot of steering ( it takes some away) and there is alot of traction and you need brakes.

In stock racing ....I run a one way or double diff.

Ah, the white belts must be longer to fit 18T Mid pulleys! I was wondering when they'd get around to doing this.. Just what i was waiting for!

Should be fine if we keep the 36T pulleys instead of switching to 37T, just have to set it a bit tighter..

Here's the Description, translated..

IFS ★ TA05-chassis, 30-race essential part of a new species equipped with a kit. ★ new parts made of aluminum center plate and cutting out 37T-18T belt pulley set. ★ Center's Floating type chassis plate is easy to twist it to improve steering response, the belt-driven drive to achieve reduction of resistance.
