The gap between chassis slot and batter is where I add lead weights. I don't even use the strap, I use the battery tape.

I just got a Mazda speed6 for my TA05. The wing has a couple of lines to give a few variations of the final shape. Any advice on which lines I should cut?

They are trim lines for different sets of body rules.
If you follow IFMAR/ROAR and the GBS then the smaller of the 2 sizes is permitted as the larger wing size falls outside of 40mmx20mm as per the GBS etc.

My track doesn't seem to have any ruling on this...

What should I look out for to determine if I should cut it down or mount it forward as there are 2 possible positions from the indents on the wing.

If I'm having too much rear grip, understeering, do I move the wing forward or cut the wing? Now I have the largest possible size and the rearward mounting position.

Thanks!

I never thought of that, that's a great idea. It's the most centralized and lowest part of the car pretty much.

They certainly don't fit. The TA05 has a much narrower bulkhead, and therefore has much shorter outdrives. This is the reason why the MSX uses 46mm drive-shafts when using the same suspension (ta05R uses 48mm)...

I just picked up 2 TA05s for my son and I, so I'm still learning about the car.
Can anyone tell me what the 416 conversion is on a TA05?

416 conversion? Never heard of this before...
Doest make sense either, given there's basically nothing in common between the TA05 and the TRF416 chassis.
A conversion in my eyes would be silly.. might as well just buy a 416!

I think it's just the hubs... to use the bigger bearings?

Hey guys check this out:

It's Penguin's new prototype hop-up chassis for those who already have the Penguin P2020 chassis kit on their TA05. It's meant to hold Lipo packs with an adjustable sliding battery side holder and Velcro battery strap. It's also being sold as a complete chassis kit for those who don't already have the P2020 chassis kit...

The chassis plate is also 20mm narrower than the standard P2020 chassis plate which makes it about the same width as the latest crop of TRF cars. This really helps prevent the chassis from bottoming out in turns...

Penguin tells me they only made 12 sets of parts, and 5 are already spoken for. This means there are 7 left. If anybody is interested you can purchase them at the link below, or send them an e-mail. I am told that any orders placed after stock runs out will be refunded in full...
