  1. It's made by Austar, https://www.lazada.com.ph/-i272559083-s397017325.html?urlFlag=true&mp=1 Here are the specs: Specifications: Material:Rubber Color:Black Outer Diameter: 71mm Inner Diameter: 49mm Tire Width: 28mm Tire Weight: 29g/1pcs
  2. Finished working on my FF-03 RR this week. Today I did a test run. Very happy with the result. CF ESC and servo/RX tray New stuff. Sanwa MT-44 and Tamiya tool set Changed the steering wheel and installed handle grip wrap Electronics installed with the RX-482 (installed them on both FF-03 cars) Height comparison...

  4. I'm using the same shocks for my CC01. They're great considering the cheap price. Got mine for US$10 a pair including shipping.
  5. Also known as the Feroza, Rugger and Taft in some parts of Asia. My dad used to have one (Feroza) back in 1991-92.
  6. Here's what we (my daughter and I) did this weekend... Trailing, crawling and rallying. Some vids... https://web.facebook.com/djnicadraus/videos/pcb.1092823044249473/1092820880916356/?type=3&__tn__=HH-R&eid=ARAI-7AI83luoYhblP7iOqZwZf6uMdmnwbCHvejaADWOsf6SsodJ1C650LPp40PnWgK_Cy3aUAvg2zH3 https://web.facebook.com/djnicadraus/videos/pcb.1092823044249473/1092821750916269/?type=3&__tn__=HH-R&eid=ARCY-D4yO77Yj5gHRCFBp3L5wfYmGxQeRrV0PeOhCpYOYSdbTRcfalqL-_K7RwqupM3faqsKbtB3vfx- I'm really happy with the result of this CC-01 build. Through trial and error, re-desiging the suspension and improving the steering, it performs that way I want to. I installed the diff locker but the steering suffers so I removed it. I replaced the motor from 55t to 27t. It can crawl without one-way and it can rally. Trailing is no problem at all.
  7. Get new ones and they are very cheap. But take nbTMM's advice if you wish to continue using those.
  8. That definitely deserves a better set of aluminum dampers. Either TRF or YR Qutus dampers. Those plastic CVA ones are eye sore so please change them.
  9. Helped my cousin build this one. Originally a TT02D (drift kit with full ball bearing) but he wanted a rally car so I converted it. I modified the rear suspension arm to create more droop. Installed some 55mm aluminum dampers which I have as spares. Replaced the plastic center shaft and cups to aluminum and hex hubs too. Will eventually replace the plastic steering to aluminum and a few other parts too to improve the car's handling. Ride height stands at 2.4cm (front and rear) with load.
  10. Same here. At first I refused to use my ex had bought me. But I was having a hard time working with model building and custom already because I couldn't see the small and finer details. Especially when painting with fine tips paint brush. Then when I started using it, it was a new clearer world. I've been using reading/working glasses since then (2013). Started with a 125 grade and now to 150. Hopefully it doesn't get any higher than that. Although my far sight vision is still ok. I just had a sight check a few months ago when I bought a new pair.
  11. It is incomparable. Even a fully modified TT02 won't be as good as the TB04. The TB is far superior.
  12. Oh I see. Didn't see that angle in your first post. But yeah, replacing the shocks to an upgraded one will definitely be much better.
  13. Are you sure it's the piston rod that bent and not the plastic CVA body? I would suggest to replace them with aluminum threaded shocks instead of replacing or rebuilding those plastic ones. Yeah Racing has good shocks at very reasonable price if you don't want to spend on TRF shocks.
  14. If I was in your shoes, I'd either get a Wild One or FAV. I just like both. I always liked the Wild One since I first saw it but never had a chance to own one before. When I upgraded my kit from a Frog (a converted Subaru Brat), the Astute came out and it was definitely a better 2WD buggy than anything else Tamiya had to offer at that time so I grabbed it instead. I was also into racing so the Astute was the one to race against with the RC10 and the Ultima kits. I'd still want to have one someday though. Probably after finishing my current and planned projects.
  15. I hope it's a real good chassis. It took Tamiya more than 2 decades to update the CC series. They should have done this a long time ago before the real crawlers came out. Now they're left in the game. I've spent so much time, money and effort re-designing the front suspension and improving the steering of my CC-01 (used 3 different brand of aluminum kits until I was satisfied). Although I enjoyed the slow build on mine. However, the new CC-02 still needs a better chassis that can keep up with the class 2 crawlers out of the box. Better suspension travel, better steering, better placement of servo, motor position and battery.
  16. I finally built my FF-03 RR (Road Rally). I've got so much spares of the FF03, that the only new items I bought for this build are the YR 60mm shocks and road rally tires. I made adjustments on the chassis by cutting some areas to add more droop. I will still grind off some more to make a higher ride height in the front. At least 2.2mm with load. Wheelbase: 246mm (this can still be adjusted to 4 different wheelbases) Front height ground to chassis (w/o servo, esc, battery): 2.1cm Rear height ground to bottom of rear chassis (w/o servo, esc, battery): 2.4cm Used these hop-up parts I have: 54223 Aluminum Motor Plate 54234 Aluminum Spur Gear Mount 54235 Aluminum Racing Steering set 54258 FF-03 Carbon Rear Damper Stay 53823 Aluminum Wheel Hub 5mm 53993 TA-05-IFS Aluminum Rocker Arm Set 54495 RM-01 aluminum servo mount 84410 Carbon Steering Plate Carbon Reinforced bumper mount Carbon Reinforced Upper Arm Mount Carbon Reinforced Rear bulkhead Carbon fiber bumper support - DIY Carbon fiber rear deck stiffener - DIY Carbon fiber ESC tray - DIY Carbon fiber servo/RX tray - DIY Carbon fiber battery holder - Not sure what brand Will still add custom carbon fiber ESC and servo trays (like I did in my other FF-03 and RM-01 aluminum servo mounts.

  18. Very clean electronics!
  19. Beautiful TB01! Lucky guy to receive a gift like that. I have a shelf queen too. My FF-01.
