hey kevin, since you have both a T2 and a TA05, maybe you can help...

I've been wanting to get a new touring car, but am not sure which cuz of the miriad of choices. I have a TB02R and won my last club race against FT TC4 and TC3's. Which of the T2 or TA05 would help me go faster? which is better for outdoor asphalt? What are the problems with each car and fixes for them? I've read this page of the T2 and seems y'all break stuff easily and its really expensive.

I race mine since march and the only things I broke were diff outdrives and belt. With the spool I have to change CVD's but never broke them. I don't think this car is fragile!!

Aluma,

The T2 is a full race kit. I have not broke anything on the car since day one. I have had the kit since day 1 it came out. I have replaced the front cvd's and blades due to wear and thats it. I dont hit much. I race my T2 each week and the Tamiya TA05 is a kit just for Tamiya TCS racing. The TA05 cost more to be fully race ready, I have over $500 in the rolling chassis of the 05 and the T2 is stock except a battery brace.

The t2 is a very out of the box race ready car, all you r2 really need is the battery strap. The ta05 is also a great car but just takes a little bit of time money and effort. The car is very stable and if you get it working its just as good as any other car. Both are great cars ( i also have both) but the ta05 will end up costing you just about the same as a t2.
my 2 cents

Every one keeps referencing a "blade". What is it?

(I don't have an xray)

its a piece of plastic that goes on the end of a cvd (where the pin meets the diff).

Its a part that wears out , so the cvd doesnt wear.


Here is a pic of the part

Art,

Mine has not made me any faster. I was thinking you had a .2+sec/lap guarantee on these.

I want one, but have they come down in price yet with mass production? I'm jut on a tight budget, but hope to get one someday soon.

well thank you for the info on both cars. I know about the Ta05 will cost just about the same as the T2 in the long run, just wondering about performance. My TB02R cost 300+ and so did my previous evo3...difference being the carbon chassis/supension. Well, I guess that just leaves me with the Darkside debate...belt or shaft... T2 or Evo5. :P
Note* I ran my ta04 on our club track and something ripped the top of the rear belt off...I finally replaced it and found a 1 inch branch stuck in the rear pulley area!

I think buying one time 41$ outdrives cost less than buying new diff 3 times a year because you just broke the outdrives on it
