Smile Very hopped up TA05 racer - TCS/VTA ready!

Decided to play in another sandbox, so am selling my (almost) TCS ready, super stealthy TA05 roller. This thing is as hopped up as you’re ever going to want/need, and weighs in at around 1560 grams, fully loaded with electronics, a 7.4 lipo ( electronics and battery NOT included) and body. I decided to pick up Tamiya’s Limited Edition black anodized parts, keeping the bling to an absolute minimum while optimizing weight and durability. The full list of hop ups is as follows:

53571 TRF Damper Set (Fluorine Coated)
53526 Tamiya RC 3x23mm Titanium Turnbuckle Shafts
53539 5.5 Aluminum Spacer Set
53601 Low Friction 5mm Adjuster
53833 Tamiya TA05 Front One-Way Unit
53842 Tamiya TA05 Stabilizer Set (F&R)
53845 RC TA05 Fnt Carbon Damper Stay
53846 Tamiya TA05 Carbon Damper Stay (Rear)
53847 46mm Assembly universal Shaft (2 pairs)
53872 Tamiya RC 3x28mm Titanium Turnbuckle Shafts (2 pairs)
53883 Tamiya 1/10 TA05 Carbon Steering Link
53884 RC Carbon Battery Plate Set - TA05
53904 Tamiya TA05 Carbon Center Plate
53970 RC Dust Protector Seal - For Differential
84000 Tamiya TA05 Center One Way Set (Black)
84003 Tamiya TA05 Aluminum Motor Mount (Black)
84004 Tamiya TA05 Alumium Racing Steering Set (Black)
84011 Tamiya Clamp Type Al Wheel Hub 5mm/Black
Non-Tamiya Titanium Screw set

This car was run for two test days by one adult owner, maybe spending about 90 minutes on a carpet track and about 5 laps on asphalt (both at Nor Cal Hobbies). Definitely never bashed or abused! Body came off of another car I have – looks good, but has some scuffing/cracks on the front end. Before you ask: yes, the chassis brace part is also included, I just removed it for convenience’s sake when running the SP v3 brushless.

BTW, by almost TCS ready, I mean that the car will need TCS legal tires and body, and will come with Top Cad suspension mounts installed (will also include Tamiya stock kit mounts for TCS). Throw in your silver can and go dominate GT3!

I don’t even want think about what the total price of the kit & parts was, but I know it was well upwards of 750 bucks. Looking for $280 shipped in the US. Makes a kickass club racer, either in TC, VTA, or TCS… Hell, I’ll even throw in a new set of Much More premounts at that price. Would consider trades for 1/12, WGT, or offroad car in equal condition.

Realized I forgot to mention this car has a 64P spur installed. If you want it, I can include a silver can or a 27T motor as well.

Just realized I have an unpainted Mazda6 body in the closet to go along with this.

Looking for CRC, BMI, Speedmerchant or other 1/12 or 1/10 pan cars, or an off-road racer that will let me use my stick packs (except for SC, I have a rig for that already)...

I could offer a very CLEAN CRC Carpet Knife--bodies/ tires/ for a 1/12 package. If you're looking for 1/12--I could use the 1/10 touring car!!
