Default Tamiya TA05R by C.A.R.

Okay; I bought the TA05R the week it hit our shores; because it seems to be the chassis of choice at the moment, and I've always wanted one.

The build of this car was mostly enjoyable; everything feel so well-fitted. If you have ever built a Tamiya kit and thought, 'Wow, this is perfect' then you aint seen nothin' yet!

Finished building the 05R on Monday last week.





At this stage the Hop-ups were as follows-
51000 High Torque Servo Saver (Black)
51065 TRF415 Suspension Mount (A)
51068 TRF415 Suspension Mount (D)
53539 5.5mm Aluminum Spacer Set
53640 5mm Aluminum Bolt Nut (Blue)
53642 5mm Aluminum Ball Connector (Blue)
53644 Aluminum Stabilizer End (Blue)
53685 TRF415 Front Bridge Suspension Mount (A)
53823 Clamp Type Aluminum Wheel Hub (5mm thick)
53836 48mm Swing Shafts for Assembly Universal Shaft Set
53849 TA05 High Precision Diff Joint
53857 04 GP Spur Gear 105T (TA05)
53869 5mm Aluminum Short Ball Nut (Blue)
53871 48mm Lightweight Rear Swing Shafts (Blue)
53874 TA05 High Precision Center Pulley Bushing
53894 TA05 Carbon Reinforced A Parts
53895 TA05 Carbon Reinforced K Parts
53897 TA05 Aramid Drive Belt (Blue) $
53899 Reversible Lightweight Suspension Set
53918 TRF Damper Low-Friction V Parts
53935 TA05 Wide Pitch Diff Pulley
53571 TRF Fluorine Coated Damper
53842 TA05 Stabilizer Set (F&R)


TRF Dampers (Blue), Damper Springs (White), Front/Rear Stabilizers, and Aluminum Turnbuckle Shaft (Blue) are also included in this assembly kit.

Was it enough? No. I hadn't even installed radio gear before the orders were processed.

Here is the result:










The aim was to keep it all Tamiya official parts. I was successful, minus the reciever.It's cost me a fortune; and I'll be using it in this years D1RC.

Thanks for looking

Chris.

What gear ratio are you using?

I have a 30T pinion but don't know if that will be the right one for a 23T motor.

Its a nice effort but I have seen better...

You should try and hunt down the clear Diff Casings..
A Fantom Racing Blue Can would have been a better motor choice.. Its more Blue then the TZ and Goes harder and faster..

Why Get such a low rated ESC?
this limits your choice of motors big time..

all tamiya parts is the desired effect im guessing and the clear diff cases dont look good IMO.

Im liking this buildup though, makes me want an 05 even more

I'm hoping to sell my old YR4 and get some dosh to smack on the 'ole TA05. Screw all TAmiya parts though, I really like the idea but I wan't to get some CF going [8D].

To continue with the blue theme, I recommend getting blue hex head screws.

If I was entering the UK D1RC and had to have all Tamiya Gear then a TB EV0 3,4, 5 would have been my choice..

A Nice Blinged Shaft drive with parts in common with another Drifter you probably already own...

The car cost me £125 from the shop at which I work (support the British trade, see.)

My boss is sorta sponsoring me for the comp. so he's donating the Acoms Hayabusa radio gear.

We agreed that the spec. I wanted from the TA05R would cost a lot of money through the UK distributer, so my boss got hold of the parts from a contact out in Japan. All in all they still came to nearly £200. Because it's new the parts are really expensive.

Altogether that's a £325 (+ £90 electronics) car, with a £30 body and a £80 lighting kit.....[X(]

I'm building my TA05R tonight and just twisted off one of the aluminum ball studs that thread in to the arms[:@] I thought I was torquing too much for an aluminum screw...and...off it came!!! To anyone building one, tap the holes with a 3mm tap before you thread in the ball stud! Very nice car, BTW, C.A.R.
