Hey guys,

Does anyone in this thread happen to have some TA05 diff joints and black 46mm swing shafts that they are looking to get rid of? The diff parts can be the originals,I'm not too picky, just not too badly worn. Same for the swing shafts. I don't mind used, just not badly worn. Please PM me with how much you are looking to get shipped. Thanks!!-Al

How wide are they? Typically its the fronts that will foul, not the rears with foams on my experience.

If they are not much wider than a standard rubber tyre, you might get away with it by using a 2mm spacer inbetween the hex and the wheel.

I have used this setup on the front of a standard ta05 for foams and its been ok for me

Quick question for the LIPO users. What battery hold down screws and or mounts are people using with the larger 5000+ lipo packs. The stocks ones are not tall enough. Unless I screw them out alot.

And this is for the tub chassis by the way.

Anyone? Maybe even a pic of how you mount your lipos in your TA05?

I have not seen a problem with lipos in any of the TA05 cars I have seen. I run in mine Orion 3800 lipos and the stock battery posts and the stock strap fit perfectly.

The orion 3800 and 3600 packs fit just fine yes. But packs such as the SMC 4700 40c and the IP 5000 30c are much taller. Tried backing out the post till it fits, but then we run the risk of the post not having many threads left into the tub chassis. Which is not safe for the lipo.

You know you can buy threaded hexagon spacers from electronic componentry shops such as Farnell or RS components? A couple of those (they come in different lengths) with two 3mm set screws of appropiate length and away you go!

Yes I had thought of that. But was hoping I could fab something from parts from another car or something so it looks better.

If you are runing a square hard case Lipo. I noticed that it does not sit all the way down in the chassis. To solve this I had to grind off the lip that holds in the Sub C cells.

Take a look you will see what I'm talking about.

Other than that I was able to run the orion 4800 lipo with the standard battery holddown.

I use the TC5 carbonfiber strap with their blue thumbscrews. Work perfect and looks good.

hey people, what are the chassis option now, for the '05. I already have the V2 of the 3Racing conversion, but finding it don't work to great with LiPo, so was wondering, what is about currently, or do I change to the TA05v.2 chassis?
