The last race with my first TA05R was at TCS against a full A-main of TRF419s. I was the only tub chassis in the 5th spot. This chassis now pictured has all new electronics.

Thanks everyone for the "Likes"~!
Nice! Yeah pretty sure I saw that 414 in another thread, that thing is awesome man.

Beautiful car. Nicely built with lots of carbon fiber & aluminum upgrades.

Thank you. Aluminum rear bulkheads are hard to come by but for some reason I ended up with three sets.

Nice! I'm a sucker for carbon and aluminum parts and a neat set up myself. I'm more of a builder and basher than a serious racer. I enjoy the build more and looking at the kit, seeing them run nicely than to see the destruction at the track.

What took many, many hours of build will end up destroyed in milliseconds.

My other two TA05 aluminum bulkheads mounted on my TA05 VDF. I want to try the TA05 VDF as a FWD for the fun of it.

Looking for a needle in a haystack. Hoping someone here has some old parts laying around. I am looking for the aluminum bulkheads for the TA05, any color. I am not looking for the IFS version. I am looking for the original car bulkheads.

If anyone has a pair, even if they are the 3-racing ones please PM me.

Thank you,

There is a seller on ebay selling 3Racing aluminum bulkhead (I think it's just one though). Or if you like GOLD, there is a seller selling a whole car with the OEM bulkhead for $249 with free shipping

Guys I got a great basic Roller off of SteveM. Wanted to know if the 3racing vs the Tamiya Gear Diff, is there a big difference, or should I just stick with the Tamiya one. It will be an Asphalt car.

Thanks

FWIW......I always ran with the stock ball diff in the rear and up front I replaced the balls in the stock diff with the Tamiya Hop-Up Options 3x3mm Bushings for Ball Differential (12pcs) part number 54424. These tiny plastic bushings allow you to lock down the front diff to make a spool, or adjusted for a limited slip diff. Less expensive than buying the full option solid front spool.

Spec-R also sell a gear diff for the TA-05 but I have no experience with these or the ones from 3Racing.

Thanks SteveM for the heads up, I did not know about the Spec-R gear diff for the TA05, I ran one back when I had an FF03. may check that out too. I believe with v2 they changed to a 12 ball diff so I will look into that as well.

Thanks again.

Looking for info on some older Tamiya parts. Does anyone have a set of the 51104 arms? I am looking for the center to center distance of the inner and outer pins.

Thanks in advance.
