  1. How much taller do you want them? Tires from Tamiya Euro Racing Truck carries tires that will fit M-chassis wheels and is 70-73mm in OD: IMG_1166.pdf IMG_1167.pdf
  2. @kiasukid I keep finding info dating way back and you are correct that the GT-01 came with spare 12mm hexes (#40152) for the GB-01 to carry M-chassis wheels. Now we only need Tamiya to re-release GT-01 :-)
  3. @kiasukid Looking in the old manual of the GB-01 chassis kit it does holds hexes on all four corners, but I do not recall them being 12mm size of smaller: https://d7z22c0gz59ng.cloudfront.net/cms/japan/download/rcmanual/57102gb_01.pdf
  4. I had the TamTech Hornet myself. One thing I learned was that the M-chassis tires fit the rear TamTech wheels. So, I mounted the rear wheels on the front axle too fitted with M-chassis tires. Voila! TamTech tarmac pounder was born.
  5. @Exit13 According to Tamiya Inc's website the tires are only 28mm in width.
  6. How about Tamiya Euro Truck tires? They are about OD of 70mm. Here they are mounted on M-chassis wheels although they do not come with tire inserts. IMG_1165.pdf IMG_1166.pdf IMG_1167.pdf
  7. The unpainted Ford Escort mk II body courtesy Tamiyablog: https://tamiyablog.com/2020/11/photo-of-the-unpainted-tamiya-51658-ford-escort-mkii-rally-body-parts-set/ Looks darn sharp to me c'',)
  8. The year (1982-83?) Tamiya released their first three-speeds, the Toyota Hilux and Blazing Blazer. My all-time Tamiya favorites to this day and showing what Tamiya was capable of in the world of rc in that period of time.
  9. @Mechanic AH Very nice looking car and great images. How did you connect the rear light? Thanks :-)
  10. The manual is now available for scrutinizing courtesy of Tamiyablog: https://tamiyablog.com/2020/07/tamiya-58681-formula-e-gen2-car-championship-livery-tc-01-chassis-assembly-manual/
  11. @Madinventor: You provided the incorrect URL. This is the correct one: https://www.hpcgears.com Thank you the link. I've added HPC Gears to my favorite. Might come in handy.
  12. I understand the M08 is confirmed. My educated guess is the chassis is likely to be announced at the HobbyShow in April/May.
  13. From what I gather, Japanese company, Ride, have discontinued their wide offset M-chassis wheels. I believe they are 4mm off set. Given the measurement above, I'd say they would fit perfectly IMO :-)
  14. It is a beautiful rally car. No doubt. Since Tamiya announced the release, I have been looking for some image of the 1:1 car and it strikes me that the tarmac tires/wheels combo on the 1:1 car could be similar to TT02 fitted with M-chassis 60 tires/wheels. The overall with of the TT02 fitted with M-chassis tires/wheels is 180mm. I guess the overall width of the body is approx. 185- 187mm. Shims might need to be fitted too increase chassis width to fit the body for better overall appearance. The body also need to be lowered though. Just a thought. I am very close to decide on the Audi for my TT02. Will be running on indoor grey carpet. qatmix, any ideas of gear ratios using 13.5 or 17.5 turn motor in TT02 chassis mounted with M-chassis tires? Image courtesy from topspeed.com Thanks.
  15. That's ok ;-) In that context, you're correct with 1:1 wheelbase of 2524mm. I still hope Tamiya stretched the body to fit 257mm chassis :-)
