Did you get some in the gears? If theres a hole where a rock used to be then thats probably the culprit.

Think I will break the car down saturday morning when I have plenty of time and check everything over thoroughly..........This car really has been running very good up till now........I must admit......I really didn't expect this much from this car.......For a low budget car I give the TA05 and A+.......Really I could just be lucky but the other cars(TC5....Xrays..ect)seem to break to easy when we do open class balls to the wall racing.......But like I say I could just be lucky.

I have a barely used TA05 for sale...$60.00.No body,noelectronics, two sets of tires. I bought it with the idea of running carpet but dirt is where I have the most fun. Make it a parts car or a VTA...it's cheap enough to have as an extra.

Thanks guys...PM me if you are interested...I can email you some photos.

I can ship it to the lower 48 UPS ground for $5.00.
$50.00 plus $5.00 shipped to the lower 48. Take it off my hands.

Thanks again.

So, I want to know what the difference is between my car and a TA05.

I see some TA04 arms on it, a black belt setup, and standard hardware. What else? I bought a couple of Ta05 parts for strength but I'd like to know more about the differences before I sift thru a pdf file on tamiya USA . . . I mean they both look the same but not

Sounds like a 1st gen TA-05. before the suspension switch.

The 1st gen TA05 are great. The original arms etc make the car stronger. They were used on the early TRF 415 and the earlier TRF 414.

Im looking for an old TA05 roller, the first version with old suspension on it.

Default New Bumper

A new front limited edition bumper is now available at tamiya usa.

I typed in tamiya 51073 on google and bought a variation for four dollars.

It's allegedly supposed to be only handed out at a special race, but I ordered one straight from the cali site

Here's the description:

RC TA05 Urethane Bumper Black - Ltd
Item #49462

This Option Part will be available as a limited edition event-only item for visitors to this autumn's Tokyo Hobby Show. It is a color variation of an existing gray-colored bumper (ITEM# 51073 TB- 02 Urethane Bumper S), and the new black color will enable the bumper to better blend in with the chassis for a more uniform appearance.

*Compatible Chassis: All TA05 chassis except TA05 MS.

I'll let you all know whether I actually get it or not, according to the above claim

After 3 years, I'm due for a new front bumper . . . .

Default Toe Block

I need help with my toe block for my rear. Now I'm having the rear inside as 1A and Rear Outside is D. This will give me 1.5 toe in. I want to have 3.0 toe in for the rear. If I want to maintain the rear outside as D, what rating should I get for the rear inside.(suspension mount type). Pls let me know the rating for 3R too.

Tks.

Well I'm new to these block to but this is what I've found

0.5 degree difference between each block.
Widest to narrowest goes

E, D, C, B, A, X, XA, XB, XC, XD

So if you want 3 degrees of toe and want to keep the rear D you would need a 1XB. Someone pls confirm.
