Try using Gray Tamiya springs on the rear and maroon tamiya springs on your front if your racing carpet..

Thanks-I got those!!! But-one of the Maroons is defective. It is the same length as the other one-but if you push down on the center of shock tower, the bad one will compress a lto more than the other-as seen on the droop gauge bubble. Weird-eh?

So...long story short-whats the rating in lbs of the Maroons?

Thanks Cheehtae

hey Ray... seems like those hard springs are like 22 and 25, but i dont remember which color is harder. keep in mind, thats totally from memory!

at the Novak last year on my 415, it was recommended to me to use yellow springs and red bars. seems like the rubber tire likes the softer setup, for weight transfer. worked well for m, on that chassis anyway. with T-O 27 premounts.

How would you go about cleaning it? With water? And would a TB-02 be better in this case instead of getting a TA-05 since it's shaft driven?

Did anyone run a tao5 at vegas? How did the TAOB guys do there and which tamiya cars were they running?

Got a question hope somebody knows. Are the ta05 suspension arms, hubs, etc the same with a ta04 or a tb02. I have both and so if I get a tao5 can I use the old ones I have and keep the ta05 as spares? Tnx.

unfortunately TAOB did not get to race in Vegas. maybe next year

yes.. the suspension on the TA05 is the same as what you have with your TB-02 and TA04 BUT the kit comes with the plastic versions of the suspension. not the hard graphite version.

Oh that's too bad. Wanted to see how well a tao5 goes against a wide array of different kits and on rubber and foam in a field full of top drivers.

My tao4 is still stock plastic and still using dogbones,etc. I guess I'll just use that. Tnx.

A safe place to start is 60/40 associated oil and 2-hole pistons up front and 3 hole in the back. 33 lb front spring and 26 rear. I would recommend Parma Cyan and Magentas. Also-if you want a little better tire life, but a little less grip , start with Purple and plaids.

Default Tamiya "DJ" Pro-Module Rear Suspension System

Has anybody fitted this to their TA05, Tamiya "DJ" Pro-Module Rear Suspension System what does it actually do? will this system work best for asphalt or carpet? and what else would you need aside from this system to make it work? any info guys, just want to get my TA05 before the carpet season starts cuz nobody in our club runs TA05 and they don't know what the capabilty of tamiya is; they only think that tamiya is for bashing around and not for serious racing but don't they realize that what's been winning lately is the 415, Just want to prove something in my club.

Default DJed TA-05...:D

Oh you mean this?....

Yes I have DJ arm, yes I runned it, but no, not on TA-05. In a very-huge crash on my TRF415, I bend one side of arm and it's out of work now. Therefore I don't know how DJ will perform on TA-05. Waiting for parts arrived right now so I can have it back to service.

Is it for asphalt or carpet? I would not comment on it since I don't play carpet. But on asphalt, the stability of rear increased, also it makes the mid corner steering and exit corner better. Generally I love it when I have it on my TRF415, but I really dont know how it would perform on TA-05.

Than why I have the photo?? Just to put it on and photoed to tell everyone it doest fit TA-05...
(ok, a bit showoff.. I know... )

My main concern now is that pebbles will fly in to the TA05 and break something in the drive train. Is there like a lexan cover or something that could cover the belt and stop this? like in the xxx-s?

I have about 40 packs on my car and nothing of the sort has happened. One precaution to take would be to cover the chassis holes just below the spur and diff(s) with battery tape.
