Anyone uses the 47T and above pinion with the 105T 0.4 spur? I seem to be having some trouble getting the pinion grub to bite onto the motor shaft (silver can) I have to put the pinion such that it clears the 2 motor mounting screws (cheese head). However, if I removed the manual recommended spacer under those screws, the fit is better. I can imagine if I used round head instead of cheese head screws, it would be even better.

Any reason why I can't NOT use the spacer and use round head screws there?

cheers!

Also where do you guys get your parts from? I am going to need to get a rear brace, servo mounts and hopefully find a center one way. Has anyone tried the 3 racing center one way?
My guess is the piston is damaged in some way, I would swap them out for new ones, as well as replacing the o-rings (2 per shock i think)...

Be careful when screwing the bottom ends to the new ones, use some layers of folded tissue over the pliers.

I have had no problems with the tamiya centre one way, personally I prefer the car with a fixed centre drive and spool up front, but that is only personal preference

I've found 3racing parts to be good usually (chassis/shock towers) but ive heard their shocks and driveshafts are not so good.

The 3Racing steering knuckles are very weak. One good hit and the bottom shears off. The stock plastic knuckles are much better.

For the shock rebuild, I always use Associated Green Slime on all of the o-rings around the shaft, and I have never had a leaking problem. I need to rebuild the used ones I got and coat them good myself.

Does someone have a good setup for the TA05 on foams and carpet please.

Also, not sure if I read it or dreamt it, but are people running the 37t pulleys from the buggies on the TA05, if so, how?

Well, the TA05 IFS-R comes with the 37t pulleys, so I don't see why the regular TA05 wouldn't be able to run them.

I requires the 501X 37t pulleys for the diffs and the center pulley, new belts, and you have to mill the chassis and motor mount(under the center belt pulleys) in a couple spots to get proper belt clearance.

Again, this is all standard stuff on the IFS-R, but should work just the same on the standard TA05.

you'll also need the new diff rings plus a few more 3mm diff balls, diff halves stay the same

I'm actually planning on doing this conversion to my 05R.

Any recommendations for a BL esc for 10.5-13.5 on the 05? I know the Tekin RS will fit, but I don't see them anywhere near my location anytime soon. The Novak seems a little bit too big. thanks!
