I recently picked up a used TA05R and was wondering wich ESCs you are using? I have 4 and couldnt find one to fit in the small area behind motor. The smallest one I have is an LRP bullet reverse that looked like it would work, but still @5mm too large. Thanks for any input Im not sure if Im gonna run brushed or brushless yet.

Nowaday, if you look at Rctech or ebay, you can find some almost new highend speedo like Novak GTX, QC2 or QC3 for like $60-80...my GT3 car use a GTX and I can mount the cab on the side with plenty of room left, I can also use QC2...........
This is one bad part about tub TA05R, I have to take off some plastic here and there to fit a Speed Passion GT speedo....Novak GTB (HUGH for my standard) somehow fit perfectly without grinding...the no need modification model of BL speedo are Tekin, KO, Orion, Novak...

Tekin RS fits with a ton of room to spare if you're going brushless.

my ESC is small enough to go in front of the motor I'll probably be changing it in the mid future though, as it's still the one that came stock with my E10

Default getting stuff in the gears

Hi there. I seem to have a bit of an issue with stuff/bits of grit(glass??) getting caught betweeen the pinion & spur
Its happened 3x in the last 2 weeks, ruining the pinions

Can I cover up the hole in the bottom of the chassis to possibly stop stuff getting sucked into the gears??

Yes you can, although if you are planning on running it on the same surfaces again, the grit or stones will just get caught and grind up the gears even more because of their 'escape' hole blocked. Best bet is just to not run it the same surfaces.

just out of interest, are you greasing the gears? I know of a few people that only had that trouble because they greased the pinion and spur. They should be running dry.

try using a bit of sticky tape over the bottom hole and hope the grit will stick to it rather than get up in the gears. Crashes might dislodge it though and throw it up in the mesh anyway, but I don't see what else you can do short of not running on that track as suggested above.

I had the same issue last year when i first started running. I used a piece of black electrical tape and taped it to the bottow. No more problems for me.

The best way to avoid it is by prepping the surface you run on first. If you are running in a parking lot, bring along a push broom and clean up the area you plan on using. If your on a track you can still do the same, but it should not require as much sweeping. I always walk the track or lot before running and if there is anything I feel might cause damage I clean it up.

I have another question for Ta05 owners. Im newer to the hobby and my Ta05. Iam enjoying hopping up the car w Tamiya parts. My local hobby shop has a Tamiya carbon chassis for Ta05. The question- Is that a good upgrade for a car that will race only asphalt & rubber tires? Seems asphalt racers like some flex in cars? Fifty bucks spent somewhere else may help more. Thanks for any input.
