  1. Love the work you've done so far with the 4-gear (I even boxed up the last bits send to you from Shapeways haha ) and it's making me want to build another FF03. So much fun to drive!
  2. Looks like MST wheels. Regular 26mm rubber tires should fit just fine, but the lip of the wheel might stick out a bit. That's how they are designed to look, to give the 'stretched sidewall' look.
  3. Have you tried sprue-ing 4 wheels together? That often helps a lot with the price
  4. Hey, 210mm wheelbase is actually the easiest to get bodyshells for. Not only does Tamiya make a whole bunch of different ones, but since it's the most common size pretty much all ABC Hobby, HPI Racing, RCon, Colt and many others are for 210mm too. From Tamiya you can get for example the Alpine A110, Honda S800, classic Mini Cooper, Renault 5, VW Golf mk1, Nissan 280ZX and probably more. You can also convert the chassis to mid and long wheelbase, which opens up a lot more possible bodyshell combo's.
  5. Time for another update before this topic completely dissappears into the archives I spent a little bit of time figuring out the electronics for the chassis. I got a KO servo and 302F carbonfibre print receiver from a friend to use for this build. I have the Surikarn motor in it and a TRF2002 ESC. Now I just need to solder everything in place. I also replaced the ltd. black wheels with the even nicer carbonfibre reinforced Tamiya dish wheels When searching for other things I came across my red TRF damper parts NIP, so I opened the packages and installed the red spring retainers and top mounts And here's the TRF2002 looking nice in the chassis Lastly I scored an original manual from Japan to complete the car a little bit more. Now I just need a box.
  6. I've been using the YR universals in my TopForce for a few years already. They seem to hold up just fine
  7. If the 4 gear gearbox works out I'd love to get one too! A bunch of guys at my old club drive FF03's and I used to race a borrowed one for a while too. So much fun Need to get my own FWD back together sometime and go race it.
  8. I'm not a fan of nitro's, but you seem to pick the most interesting models every time for a build. I'm following all your restorations closely! The progress from the before and after pictures is just so satisfying to watch.
  9. What brand is this hop-up? The GPM hop-up has bushings and a step screw, not like this. On mine I've replaced the bar with a turnbuckle so I can adjust the ackermann a little bit. Seems to work just fine, although I have the carbonfibre chassis of the Top Force on my car. I think I have another with a similar set of aluminium steering links. Let me have a look at home to see how that one is set up.
  10. Get yourself one of those TT01 or TT02's in a bag from Germany. They are stripped kits and go for about 50 euro's. Cheapest display chassis
  11. On the plastic too? What grit? The parts indeed look so much better now than the 'before'
  12. Thanks! I'll give that a try. Hopefully modern glue won't withstand the heat
  13. How did you get the tires off? I have a set of tires I need saved from a set of way to modern rims.

    Love the rear suspension! I was thinking of putting my set on my TRF414 for fun You should really upgrade the wiring though. Such a nice chassis and then a rainbow coloured spaghetti ziptied to the side really lets it down in my opinion These touringcars are at their prettiest with minimal, clean wiring.
