Can I change motor to 3.5 turn to get more speed on the straight. Cause many advise is that the car will be very diffcult to handle . Is it true? . Is there any one out there who has tried a 3.5 turn in this track.
You'll need to upgrade the ESC, the yeah racing (hobbywing) 60A ESC is 5.5T max. I think a 3.5 is too much for a small track, but I could be wrong.

Just want to give everyone a heads up. Tony's Screws now has screw kits for both the standard TA05 and the TA05-MS.

I have, and it was pretty good. I actually helped them re-do the chassis holes cause a small missalignment was causing a sway-back. This was about a year ago, so the current stuff should all be good. I even have an extremely limited (12 units made) lipo upgrade lower deck kit if anybody is interested. The lower deck is much narrower and includes the adjustable battery mount and velcro strap.

If you wanted to make it a full chassis kit, I think you only to contact them about getting the rest of the kit.

I've been wanting to sell this for around $90...

haha, I blew up my 20 HPI EN-1. I ran without a fan, and smelt the magic smoke. Rule no. 1, IF you smell the magic smoke, Don't touch the heatsink! I have a nice heatsink burn now.

My car didn't do the funny little hoppy thing at the track, the surface is different. And as I popped my ESC, I transferred my 19t setup into it. It wasn't much faster than my stock motor round the track. More speed, but even though I could handle it the lap times were the same.

What foam bumper does everyone use as a replacement for the stock unit?

The stock bumper falls a bit short for just about any of the popular race bodies.

Holy sh*t! All that happened with mine was the plastic bubbled on one of the FETs, and the solder melted inside.

Anyone on here know what the tire grade (shore) is of the stock tires that come in the TA05 kit? I was trying to determine the shore grade as they seem to be a really firm tire. I have some Jaco Green (28shore) tires I've been running and seem to work pretty well on pavement. Two of the Jaco's are battered up really bad (out of round and cracked) so I experimented this weekend running two good Jacos up front and the stock Tamiya's in the back this weekend. I tried that combo out because the car has been pushing really bad off/on throttle in or out of corners when the Tamiya's are up front and the Jaco's are in the back. Now the car handles completely the opposite and is now extremely loose! I'd like to get some different tires to bridge the gap in tire grade so I have more options. For the time being I am going to try different springs and shock settings to dial it in. Any thoughts?

They have to be over 40. The only time I've ever seen them work properly is when I was testing my car on the street the day before I raced, and ran vtec 27's (which overheated and caused the car to be unpredictable). So, I glued the stock tyres up (I was saving the rims too ), and although they offered slightly less grip than the vtec's they were more predictable, and I could not get the back end more than 20 degrees out (so some drifting, but not much). It was a really warm day, air temperature was 27 degrees C, and the temperature of the ground was over 40 degrees C.
