  1. For show car, alloy is fine but if you were to drive them, the alloy will just transfer the force to the next weakest link or even worst, bent.
  2. if you are in Canada contact Borgfeldt they can order Tamiya spare parts directly from Tamiya Japan. If you are in TamiyaUSA, check their website and contact to see if they can order spare parts. Other than that there's TRF Offroad Facebook group
  3. Thanks, I'll give it a try before shelling out more money. Somehow this truck is not as fun as the Lunchbox despite being so ...awesomely big
  4. I guess I have no choice. Should I try 1/8th scale dampers for the vertical dampers? I have the TXT2 aluminum dampers on mine which to me seems kinda of small.
  5. Is the only way to resolve torque twist is to mount the dampers vertically? I've tried thicker damper oils, heavier springs, radio curves, esc curves. The TXT-1 current has a dual 55t motors with 19t pinion. I guess I can change the motors to silver cans.
  6. If you are starting out and want to learn from others trial and error, industrial tools manufacturers like WIha/Wera are probably best bang for the bucks. If you want to stick with a known hobby brand, MIP is what I would go with (if you don't mind the looks). IMO MIP performs better than my Hudy/TRF tools. I kept the Hudy/TRF tools around to lend out and mainly use my MIP tools instead.
  7. just search for m3 hex button head/cap/countersunk screws on Ebay. I don't really think the buyer matters. Just make sure to look for the class. I went with 10.9 which should be more than enough. https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-information/materials-and-grades/bolt-grade-chart.aspx
  8. I contacted thercracer, the original designers of these parts, who said he is working on the TL01 version. Stay tune! I believe he also visits this forum...
  9. Thank you very much I was just about to order the parts to try them out. Thankfully I didn't go through with the order. I wished I had both car to measure out to send it to them. They are definitely very good about making minor redesigning.
  10. Anyone have a m03 and TL01 can compare the front and back end to see if they are the same?
  11. Sorry I must have forgot to include the link which probably would have helped. It's the carbon stiffener from fibre lyte to reinforce the damper mount
  12. Does anyone know if I can use the front M03/FF02 carbon stiffener on the TL01 front/rear? It looks like I need two Front Stiffeners since the TL01 front/rear are the same. If anyone has a M03 and TL01, could you help me compare? I used to have a M03 so I do seem to recall the size but I want to be sure before I order it. Link to the stiffener https://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk/fl/cars/tamiya/m03ff02.html
  13. FYI I re-built my TXT1 with all brand new plastic parts tree. Tamiya Canada was able to order everything straight from Tamiya Japan. Pricing wise, it's quite reasonable considering Ebay prices tend to be a lot higher. I didn't try ordering the metal parts bags except for the ball connectors. Screws I was able to source higher quality hex screws from Ebay. Do note, it literally took half a year for all the parts to arrive. Apparently, some parts were unavailable so they had to wait for Tamiya Japan to manufacture more.
  14. I can take a picture of the instruction sheet. Mine doesn't leak but I've build them similarly to how I built my other TRF dampers with a touch of AE green slim around all the o-rings (you can use other brand's as well)
