This is a new chassis and I'm still working on the setup so these will change.
But just to give you guys a feel that the TA-06 is really popular in Japan right now.
They are currently the must have chassis.

It's great with OTB shocks (shakedown) but it will be tuned a bit more over the coming weeks until I'm happy indoor.
Then I'll take this one on Asphalt. The plastic chassis will get some abuse.

Image

Wheels are +9 front and +12 rear

Body is HPI 200mm FD3s rx7

This is almost as good out of the box as my DRB with a lot of hours spent on suspension settings.
I think it can only get better.

Serious? - Well it´s not quite out of the box as I see with the overdose hubs and steering. But still, interesting, I would have imagined the weight distribution not that suitable for drifting with the motor in the rear. - Nice photos by the way.

set up matters more than anything.

chassis definitely looks cool. i always thought than type of front suspension would be good for steering angle. but i'd rather keep the motor up front myself.

The chassis loves oversteer.

You can slide into corners from miles back with total control.

My friend's TA-06 has been corner weighted, balance is almost exactly 25% on each wheel. Corner weighted.

Steering needed to be changed.

But check out my blog, I've been working on it.

My issue is the stupid spur gear location on VDF/OTA/CER etc and
I had an RE-R and I switched to DRB and This chassis for that reason.
This is, as good, or better than that and I had to modify the RE-R a lot to get it to perform.

Here is a similar car in action.
Don't think rear engine is bad.
I definitely try before I buy.

Looks awesome :up: You have made me want a TA06 now.

Can you give me any build tips? and are there any mods needed to CS or do grub screw pulley just bolt on stock?

Hi Jeremy

You can go up to 1.5 pretty easily
39t stock front
15t - 18t on the centre
Vdf 16t belt pulley on the rear

Many guys are still running stock ball diff up front
With rigid rear

Some guys have taken the extreme route
With full square conversion and
41t in open bulkhead
12t-20t centre
16t rear
This gets to 2.0 cs

Mine is between these but still not straight forward

Overdose steering is recommended
I changed the centre pulley shaft to a slightly bigger one
And used a metal mount

Depending on brands
I'd plan to spend an extra 250 or so on top of the pro kit
for a decent setup

But they are very nice handling chassis

Everyone I know (about 15 now)
Says the same
Easy to drive

Here are some updates.

Front turnbuckles changed for more camber.
Overdose Spring seats
Springs Rear Kazama Soft.
Springs Front RC926 Ultrasoft

Image
Upgraded Front tensioner with 11T ideler pulley

Image
Overdose steering is awesome.

Image
Some decals on the chassis
I reversed the servo and eliminated a lot unnecessary stuff.

Full Kawada Steel HEX screw set. Thank GOD for that!

Don't worry about the different tyres. Just for pix.

I've also changed the rear mount for a modified carbon VDF item.

Image

Now running with RC296 Carpet tyres with +12 all round. Front has -2mm wheel hub for +10 on the Celica XX (Supra).
