  1. I understand the M08 is confirmed. My educated guess is the chassis is likely to be announced at the HobbyShow in April/May.
  2. 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 :-)
  3. 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.
  4. 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 :-)
  5. As per 1:1 wheelbase, I'd say 257mm is closer than 251mm :-) Anyway, I sincerely hope Tamiya stretched the shell it to fit 257mm, so I can fit it to my TA06 chassis.
  6. @speedy: Thanks :-) I also use 0.3 mm ABC Hobby tape. But from the inside. The lexan paint holds down the tape. But I admit, if you are going to do a multiple paint scheme, it will be a challenge. Up til now, I have only done one color liveries.
  7. @speedy. Thank you for the thorough reply. I am new to 3D prints as well as designing parts. I understand you use FreeCAD? I see endless possibilities of making small parts for my many projects.
  8. Have to say, what an awesome build. I am in head over heels in your project. Love it. Is it not possible to 3D print a longer chassis plate to accommodate the longer wheelbase using RM01 uprights? Or will a 3D print chassis be too fragile, say in a crash? Oh, and what material have being used to make the parts? Thanks :-)
  9. How wide is the Hyundai since offset wheels are being used? Your car really looks the part. Nice to see Tamiya can do Hyundais too? Although, with some difficulty of availability for the average rc fan.
  10. Gee GreatDane, I don't know. Try Tamiyablog.com they might help you out. Thanks, GreatDane. Found it. Only to find out only for the Korean Tamiya agent. Image courtesy of Tamiyablog.com. :-)
  11. I see many great news from Tamiya at this year's ToyFair. I thought I saw a Tamiya RTR Hyundai i20 (rallycar) among the new releases, but I do not recall where? Any of you guys seen it?
  12. Sad business indeed. Although, LRP are to start up again in the near future, J├╝rgen says. Fingers crossed.
  13. Yep, M-chassis wheel size fitted to Racing Truck (TT02) tire.
