Waht would be the best lighweight set to buy for the TA05?

1. TA04/TB02 Lighweight Suspension Set
or
2. TRF 415/TB Evo III Lighweight Suspension Set
stick with the 415 kit as it comes with the longer u-drives.

well the 05 has done well again, 5th in 540 class at the much more masters, out of about 30 in the class. A final was full of x-rays, RDX's, pro4's etc... not bad for a car half there price.

My car was 1580~1590 with most all hopups. So I dunno. Mine was heavy. I guess different setups different weights. Oneway, center oneway, carbon towers, LW suspension and blocks, aluminum steering bell cranks, aluminum rear hubs, TRF shocks, Ti axles, Ti turnbuckles, Monster stock with heat sink, 9550 servo, Spektrum Rx, KO Esc, shrink wrapped GP3300, stuff like that. But I also have some Square carbon body post supports and bumper support and aluminum steering knuckles.

I think I'm gonna go with Ti screws and ditching the battery strap and goin with tape to lighten it up alittle.

Anyways, the car ran great the first 2 rounds. But I messed around with gearing the 3rd, and had fun for the mains with the Tamiya NSK body that someone dared me to run. hehe.. Surprisingly the NSK body felt pretty good compared to the "main stream" bodys everyone normally runs.

So, I'm impressed with how the car handles so far. Drive train is very free. The car just feels good on the track. We'll see next weekend. I may take it out for a couple laps again.

Hi,

Maybe I will enter a TCS next year.

Clearly the TA05 is the way to go.

I would like to know:
Does the TA05 has the rear adjustable TOE in ther basic kit or as opt ?
Does the TA05 has a alu motor mount in the basic kit ?
Does the TA05 has full TurnBuckle in the basic kit ?

e_lm_70

P.S: At the moment I have a stock TB01R (just with alu motor mount in addition) ... and still I put behind me many TB02 ...

Hi e_lm_70,

The standard TA05 kit does not come with adjustable rear toe, for that you'll need to go with the 415 aluminium suspension blocks or the Evo 3/4 rear 1 degree toe in uprights.

The motor mount is metal not sure if it's aluminium it is light enough to be aluminium, just doesn't have a nice shiny finish to it.

The standard kit has a full set of turnbuckles.

Default TCS Gudge Match : Motor

Hey Rod,

Have you had a chance to talk to Fred about changing the motor? That 25t sounds like it will be as fun as watching paint dry.

Martin,

at 2V... it has 2.5amp draw with 5400rpm on my much more motor master. watching paint dry is more exciting.

Default 25t motors

Hey Fred - how about we all just run mod motors - lets make it interesting enough to make it worth the expense of the trip.

Mod Ta05, I'm so down! Let's make these things explode!

Martin, I picked up a 25T last week and upon closer inpection, the endbells are locked in place. No comm cutting? What the? I mentioned this to Freydoh and he verified it and now is mulling over what to do. I hope he makes up his mind soon as I think the guys are heading over to Monster Madness this weekend so he won't be around.

Last weekend kinda sucked. I managed to take out the steering I had initially. Problem is, I took out too much Gonna work my way back until I find the balance I'm looking for. And my charger is doing some funky stuff. My packs are taking in 6000-7000mah and they have no punch or top end...definate trip to the mothership this week.

You know what would be real fun and interesting? Have the past champs run nitro!!! The TG10 Mk-2 would be perfect! There are plenty of styles from kit to almost RTR to RTR! It'd be fun, different, unpreditable, and a perfect opportunity to promote the fine Tamiya nitro kits that aren't getting much attention.

Hey Rod,

Great to hear from you. Good luck with the mother ship!

the following is a link to the tamiya japan site with pics of the GT motor.http://www.tamiya.com/japan/rc/event...ed/gttuned.htm

Looks like you can change brushes, but I can't tell if the end bell is held on with screws that will allow it to be removed. Sounds like you and Fred have confirmed the end bell can't come off...

I assume these motors feel like a slow stock motor?

I really hope Fred lets us run mod


btw - how is the new Ferrari 430 body - it has no wing?

Nitro would be kool! I love the new MKII! But the the neighbors may not like the noise!

I see people running nitro at Tamiya sometimes. The OS engine and muffler that came with the kit really does not make much noise at all.
