    TA-01 Turning Yellow

    Hmm, then maybe I should do so now, if it's not to late? About the rear hubs, this was the way the black one's were mounted, and I think it's to get the correct wheels distance to the arches on the body. Once I got the chassis done, I can see how the body will fit if I change them to the correct way.

    Started to assemble the gearboxes and suspension. I noticed that there is some cracks in the plastic, but I used Gorilla glue, so hopefully that will help.

    The thing I find boring with restorations is cleaning parts, especially if they are not that dirty. That’s why it has taken some time to get progress in this project, that said I have now washed the parts. Ok, I did wash some parts that I didn’t need to, but then again, then they are clean if I’m gonna use em on a later point. The orange chassis tub I know for sure will be used in future project.

    Went through my parts box and found some parts I think will be nice to have on this car.

    Rising Storm Rebuild

    Got some new parts. Spacers to use in the suspension, to get it tighter. Titanium King pins, just because it’s cool Also i bought allot of the plastic parts, to have as spare, but also to use once this one turns into a shelfqueen. I just had to get another turnbuckle shaft kit, since it was very cheap, I will put this one in the box for my nib Rising Storm. I addition I have bought some araldite glue to use for the motor mount mod.

    Ahh, i was a bit quick on my assumptions Yeah it would have been so cool if they did that. all yellow or any other color. they should have done some new special editions, since they still use these chassis in re re's.. colored ballends are cool in different colors. I actually think I have a yellow high-torque servo saver someplace

    Not that much, just mounted some 3rd party option parts from Manobet on two of my Top-Force chassis. This is my first ever Top-Force build. It's built from a Terra Conqueror, I used the Manta Ray Frp conversion kit. I thought it was important to have one on my runner also

    New wheels and tires for my Marui Ninja Never thought I see the day, so super pleased that I managed to get hold on these never run and still soft tires.

    Thanks for the info... So mainly 4 or 5 with the orange ta02 tub, complete chassis and then you got the white one with tub and arms, but no gearbox. Would have been cool to have em all built and displayed. I have as shown here in the thread the yellow and the orange one's but I also got the green tub. I have some white fr01 arms, that I could dye to match the tub, if I want to. I had the pink df01 arms, but I dyed em red. Actually I thought they were already dyed pink from white by someone else. If I only had know that it was tamiya original pink (I didn't know at that time that Tamiya had made em in pink) , I wouldn't dyed em red.. But they do look nice on my black and red Top-Force https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=124598&id=8721

    Thanks.. i to love these parts, but i dont have to many of them. Question for every colour made have Tamiya made tub,suspension and gearbox parts in that color? Being so hard to get hold on, i would say it’s just as hard to let go any of these parts. If i have and ever decide to let them go i will let you know.

    Sorry I wrote the wrong chassis type, it's a TA-01 chassis that I'm going to build.

    Ahh, I just had to be sure so I check if this is a DF-01 chassis or a TA-01 and I'm a bit embarrassed now of course it's a TA-01 chassis.. I always mix these I must change the heading and the logo for this build..
