TA05

Up until now, I have only been racing the TB02 chassis. As I had just bought the TB02, I had no intention of changing at the beginning of last year's season (2006). Out of curiousity I bought a Ferrari F430 TA05, which I planto gradually hop up and race at some occasions, but my TB02 will remain the main racer for 2007.

Pictures will come, I have not assembled the car yet - I want to add some of the essential options from the start... These parts are waiting for me at the postoffice.

These are the parts that are left over after 'selecting' the stuff I don't really need. Too bad I had to buy this kit in Belgium to get a proof of purchase in order to be allowed to race the Euro Cup: I paid it twice what I would have paid in Hongkong - shipping and taxes included!

Even though the car is not ready yet, I have made a body for it. It's a Ferrari 360 Modena, Daytona version. I feel this is the best body I have ever done - but that can be argued with. Enjoy the pics, on my TB02R chassis for now.


Update 20 - 11 - 2006

I finally finished the chassis - just about full option. All I'm missing are stabilisers (don't use 'em right now), one ways (ditto) and the carbon reinforced chassis / parts. I'm hoping Tamiya will release carbon barts, and I wouldn't know why I'd need the chassis: my car is just over the weight limit as it is, and the standard chassis is sturdy enough. Perhaps to provide more rigidity... I'll see...

This pic has it all: plastic, nylon, steel, titanium, aluminium - even some wiring ;)

Miniaturisation all over again: small servo, tiny esc and receiver. These are actually my spare electronics from the TB. The idea is to take this car with me to races, so I can swap parts (or cars) when needed...

TA05 on the left, TB02 on the right. Both cars are extremely equipped to race...

Naked shot...

Need a lot of spares when racing... These are just the NIP's that I take with me to the track - excluding wheels, tyres, inserts.
