Tamiya TB-05 aluminium & titanium parts

Tamiya have announced a range of new option parts for the TB-05 electric on-road kit. First up is an aluminium servo mount as a replacement for the standard plastic part. Using the stronger alloy frame will improve steering response thanks to the part being way less flexible. Next up are aluminium steering bell cranks made from aluminium. The parts are a replacement for the kit’s plastic cranks and like the above servo frame they will ensure a more precise and direct steering action due to their greatly reduced flexibility compared to the standard kit items. Another steering related item is an aluminium Ackermann plate that can be used alone or in combination with the above alloy parts. The steering plate comes with a set of shims to adjust the overall play and the part again greatly improves steering durability and precision. All aluminium parts are machined from high-grade aluminium and they come blue anodised to match the remainder of the car’s option parts. Last but mot least comes a 97-piece titanium screw kit for the TB-05 Pro that scrubs about 20g of weight. The replacements for the standard steel fasteners includes both countersunk and button head screws.
