Tamiya TA05 4WD Basic Chassis

Tamiya TA05 4WD

The TA05 represents the state of the art in sport-level sedan chassis of its time. It fits the TA04′s outer suspension components onto an entirely new low-slung tub chassis featuring an equal-length belt drive system, a motor mount just rear of center, and a longitudinal battery mount. The TA05 features front & rear end assemblies that are as close to identical as reasonable, reducing spare parts needs and simplifying the maintenance routine. With many versions and updates produced, including a laydown Inboard Front Suspension (IFS) version for lower-slung bodies, the TA05 platform was both versatile for casual dirvers and capable on the track for club racers.

2-Belt Driven TA05 Chassis
Fresh from its multiple victories at IFMAR, the world champion TRF team has incorporated a huge amount of feedback to bring you Tamiya’s newest R/C chassis, the TA05. The key feature of this chassis is the innovative transmission system which employs two equal-length drive belts mounted front and rear, interlocking with tooth surfaced center pulley. This design greatly reduces drive resistance to achieve better transmission efficiency at high speeds. The chassis structure has been redesigned for optimum balance, locating the motor in center-left and battery in center-right position. Center shaft, drive belts and spur gear have also been repositioned for improved balance. Suspension is the same durable and reliable system found on the TA04 chassis. Several features make this chassis wonderfully easy to perform maintenance on, such as the single deck frame and one-piece motor mount. Front and rear bulkheads are identical and feature 2-piece detachable design. New-style mount allows diff to be removed without detaching stabilizers.
