  1. πŸ˜‚ That is because it is normal for chinese to do it the β€žwrongβ€œ way.
  2. Awesome! I really want to drive one of my Blasters, but only on a low bump/jump offroad surface/track to not senseless destroy parts.
  3. There are not many official Hop Ups for the Dyna Blaster. As far as I know only the pink Acto Power (53122), the turnbuckle shaft set (53181) and the sleeved damper set (53125). The shockbodies for the latter are still available in Germany. I bought them and found an offer from @Collin for the fitting V-parts. Fun fact: the piston rods of the TC-01 are the same. The missing N-parts are not really necessary, because they only consist of the ride height clamps (I used the ones of the stock dampers) and the upper spring retainer (I 3d-printed these). A little problematic are the upper damper mounts. I bought the thick o-rings and 6mm balls, but there is no chance to get the knurled nut. I replaced this part with spacers and a press nut. Building these shocks is fun and they look awesome ... and then I found another Dyna Blaster before having done the body of the first one yet 🀣πŸ₯° It is already laying in parts in front of me. The condition is even better than the first one. Awesome ☺️
  4. Just an update where my TC-01 conversion is heading: Right now the motor mount is like a wall in the chassis and blocks an elegant topdeck solution. As it is attached in the centerline, why not use it to attach the topdecks there. Four plates, two front and two rear, will connect the ends of the chassis with the motormount, with the shocks in between. These are angled to locate lower in the chassis. The COG is significant lower in my concept compared to the stock chassis.
  5. Thanks to @Collin and @Tamiyabigstuff I could get some parts in my hands to make this car even more beautiful At first the rear podplate was a little thorn in my eye: Together with it I also replaced the screws with new shiny ones. Of course Tamiya and from the nineties And then this: A new body set for the full shelfqueen mode. More to come πŸ₯°

  7. 😴 It is not easy to compare the chassis with the TC world out there. Unfortunately the suspension makes the car very narrow, so that it achieves 180mm width with 2mm offset wheels. Typical Tamiya... I finally will have a day with the car next weekend. RtR my car weights 1378g. Today I made special battery holders to keep the 1/12 sized lipo in place. For the gearing I chose 82/46 (64dp). This way I get the motor a close to the middle axle as possible and have a good gear ratio for my 17.5t motor. With a ride height of 5.5mm the car looks a little offroad I know, I know, dish wheels look horrible on it. To get a feel for the performance it makes more sense to use performance tires, than drifting around...
  8. I tinkered around with the chassisplate design. And it looks like vertical topdecks will save a lot of trouble and still be fairly low placed in the car. The lower deck could become narrow. 60mm is possible. The design shown is just for the concept. I will work on the bulkheads next.
  9. Better progress than expected today I could benefit from my work for the KR-MF, still Tamiya makes the arms, for example, incredible complex in detail...
  10. Anyone here know a source to get these dampermount-nuts on the shocktower?
  11. Thanks Wheels and tires of the F201 should be no problem. The bodies of F102/F103/F104 and F201 will not fit properly (= hidden chassis and dampers) as the TC-01 is just too wide in the front area...
  12. Slowly making progress. The first step is now to build and position all the parts I will not replace, to make sure there will be no collisions and the function is guaranteed.
  13. You can do that, or use a longer screw and attach the upper shock end where the body mounts are. As the shocktowers are weak I do this with my runner πŸ˜‰ For details just look at the pictures in my FF-01 thread.
  14. You can guess what comes next πŸ˜… I will do a lot of CAD work in the next weeks and show screenshots here. For the moment I want my carbon chassis conversion be more customer friendly. So it should be able to use the standard suspension parts and I am taking the given locations for the suspension. I cannot guarantee for more, but it will be not KRv3 radical.
  15. Thank you! Cool info again πŸ‘πŸ» The old wheels have the semi-gloss finish, at least the originals that came with the truck have.
