Well, no, because the IFS-R has the 37T diff pulley so it can run the TA05 gear diff. This year's rules say, in effect, that a TA05 R can't run the gear diff while a TA05 IFS-R can.

I am going to try out my old Honda HSV body this weekend and see how it does. The new NSX will be next to try when it arrives at Tamiya.

As far as I can tell, Tamiya never published a setup sheet for the TA05 IFS-R. The TA05 v2 is a fairly mild evolution from the TA05 IFS-R. Are standup front shocks allowed as an option on the TA05 IFS-R under TCS rules?
Yes. The parts to do so came in the kit originally.

The Tamiya TA-05 gear diff unit is made for the V2.

item 54312 RC TA05 Gear Differential

Used in place of the ball differential of standard equipment car. By changing the hardness of the silicone oil inside, you can finely set the effectiveness of the differential action. Compatible chassis: TA05ver.II, TA05-IFS R (37T pulley specification car)

Just let anyone know who is going to World this year. The rule in Japan required all IFS body fit with IFS setup only.

Hi Fred,

Is this apply the TCS in US too?

No. I won't take it that far. If you have a legal IFS body and it fits a stand up set up without looking silly, then it's OK to run.

It's been my observation that the only IFS body that didn't fit the stand up shock set up properly is the 2007 NSX.

The new kits and options like the low carbon front shock tower on ta06 and tb04 will fit almost all IFS bodies. I think it's a shame Tamiya world did not allow standup shocks on IFS bodies. Obviously Tamiya is looking to phase out the necessity of IFS with newer low towers, so i think it should have been allowed in the future.

Angry M03 BANNED? SUPER GLUE BANNED?

well, all held true except for the latter.

There is no reason to Ban the M03 from mini class. The M03 shares practically all the same critical parts with the M05 and 6: suspension arms, steering knuckles, front and and rear uprights are all compatible, all gears ( except the M06 ball diff ). I can run my ancient TA-02 in GT2 but the M03 needs to be Banned?????

On a side note the rules this year for mini state " no super glue on the horizontal surface of tires to change the traction characteristics" really.... glue is an unfair advantage? it is so rare and so expensive that only elite racers can get it from wal-mart, walgreens, the dollar store, your local hobby shop. Or de we need to buy Tamiya glue to support the TCS series. If so put me down for a gallon.

Some (not all ) mini racers were using CA on the Tire to make it a 'stiffer' tire... that in itself is an unfair advantage. once that happens, not all tires are the same. different levels of grip.


i still thinks the sidewall rule is bogus. still changing the flex of the tire, just not as much and still a noticeable difference as the laptimes dont lie comparatively...

and its not hard to 'police'.. theres a difference between a little excess run of the glue down the sidewall and caked on multiple layers of CA thus making the sidewall stiffer... BS.. period

on the TRF belt drive cars, are the bulkhead widths the same? are the diffs, and shock towers interchangeable on the TRF416,417,418,419 ?

Never liked how it handled to be honest. LOOKS great though. But what do I know. New NSX looks awesome as well.
