  1. hi i bought a set of titanium coated shafts 54043. the grooves seem to be slightly taller/thicker than the stock ones and overall length is a bit shorter?
  2. I was watching some youtube videos of the build and 1 video stood out "trf tc-01" They used a number of expensive parts like 54543TB04 Gear Different Aluminum Cup Joint 54533Gear Differential Cross Shaft for TB04 54540Steel Bevel Gears For TB04 Gear Differential 42324TB05 40T Aluminum Differential Housing Set 54593TB04 Carbon Reinforced G Parts then the manual offered a few other options, 54522Tamiya Aluminum Front Direct Coupling For TB04 TB Evo.6 54592Tamiya Aluminum Front Direct Coupling For TB04 TB Evo.6 54522 ball diff set. 54521 front one-way set and stock diffs I have no idea what to use for the tc-01, any advice?
  3. is it possible to use epoxy or something under the paint to join the panels together? I am trying to avoid using screws
  4. I've seen 3 different types of dampers used or suggested by various youtubers, trf short damper, trf special damper and TRF Super Short Big Bore Dampers
  5. also, I don't quite get the distinction between trf419xr and ta07ms/R. I mean, what are each of the cars trying to target/achieve? the costs of these cars are so close to each other.
  6. I want a competitive race car since I have the tt02r as a "leisure" car.
  7. I am interested in getting a discontinued porsche 911 gt3 cup xb as it removes the need for me to apply stickers, paint the body, getting the width. but how do I go about replacing the chassis with a newer chassis like TT02 and beyond with hopups? the porsche has a 251mm wheelbase with a wide tread. Other than the stock TT02 and the original tt-01E, I am not aware of any other tamiya chassis with such wheelbase and width.
  8. I will be heading to germany and I am hoping to get some touring cars while I am there. But a search of online rc car shops in germany shows they don't seem to sell trf419xr, ta07r/pro, etc what online shops do germans get their rc cars from? other than ebay.
  9. I need another touring car chassis as I only have a TT02R but I have quite a few bodies. Getting another tt02r isn't what I want because nowadays a TT02R costs just below a TA07 pro with discounts. I am also thinking of long term use and I wish to avoid buying Ta07pro then buying hopups then upgrading to a 07R, then trf419xf. I mean, based on prices I see on ebay, etc, a Ta07R costs about US$500, ta07 MS US$550 +20 for shipping. a TRX419xf about US$550.+20 for shipping, a Ta07 pro with a few hopups costs almost half that of the previous 3 kits. Ta07 pro with all the upgrades to reach a 419xf level would still be cheaper but the hassle is not worth it. any advice?
  10. I recently saw a listing for a tamiya 1/20 mammoth dump truck (original ones, not re-release) and it had parts that didn't match reference photos, the dampers and links
  11. is this kit really going to be limited in production numbers? the previous anniversary kit, porsche 934 jagermeister, has a product code starting with 8 which suggests it's a limited edition porsche but months after its release it can be found easily on retail shelves everywhere. some sites claim this kit will be limited in production volume but it has a product code that doesn't start with 8. can someone enlighten me?
  12. Question 1, gear pitch of the final 3 gears of the high lift transmission? I've been trying to measure the gear pitch of the final 3 gears and it seems I more or less reach the number of 0.96 module, which does not make sense as the closest gear pitch is either 0.8mod or 1.0mod. So to be sure I tested against a known gear pitch (1.0module) on another short course truck, and it seems to match. The thing is, I can't be sure so I am just asking for confirmation or corrections if I am wrong. 2nd question. 1 of the ways I am trying to modify the gear ratios of the HL tranny, is to get a replacement gear for the final gear, the one with a hex slot in the middle. How do I find 1.0module gears with the same sized hex hole?
  13. I got the junfac kit because I watched some guides and youtube videos and it seems it addresses some issues like slop etc, so I thought i used it. I do want a low-rider, I already have a scx10 II Took a 2nd look at the links. It appears the junfac upper links are shorter and lower links about the same or longer than stock ones
