    Tamiya VW Rally (MF01-x) build options

    I think it must be this one in yellow, not red. The little spacer. And that goes on the shaft inside where all the oil goes, right?

    Cheers. I think I know what spacer you mean. There is only one on each tree, right? Looks like about 1cm in length.

    I’ve got the TT02 CVA kit to build them. Did you use the longer ball connector lower parts V2, or V1? V2 would certainly make the shock length longer overall, but I may not sure if they should be built that long? Also, the internal spacer to limit the length of the travel, is that part 3 on the V part tree? It looks like a little tube, do you just stick it on the piston?

    MF01 Beetle Build

    When building the TT02 54753 shocks for your MF01X, did you use the longer ball connector lower parts V2, or V1? V2 would certainly make the shock length longer overall, but I may not sure if they should be built that long? Also, someone mentioned using the internal spacer to limit the length of the travel, did you do that, and if so is that part 3 on the V part tree? Thanks!

    Body doesn't sit evenly on chassis...

    My MF01X has a very similar issue. Mine though the front right wheel had much more clearance between the tyre and wheel arch than the other side. Nothing rubbing, straight posts. Just weird!

    Wheel Hexes. Comparability.

    I’ve just taken delivery of 2 sets of 5mm Yeah Racing clamping ones. 1 set is for my MF01X. Annoyingly, it looks like the stock plastic ones are more like 6mm! How much difference will it actually make? For my XV01 that I am building soon, does anyone know if they are 5mm or 6mm as standard?

    Tamiya 58667 Audi Quattro Rally

    The Lancia Delta Integrale is my favourite car of all time but this era Quattro comes fairly close. What a legend. I guess it’s a shame it’s not on a more rally specific chassis but I think it looks stunning and will be hard to resist!

    I saw this when I was tired and assumed it was a static model. Didn't realise it was going to be an RC car. Looks amazing!

    MF01 Beetle Build

    Could do, but my MF01X is a total basher and it's already covered in dirt and mud and I can't see myself cleaning it any time soon. Looks like a well used rally car right now!

    They do but I am sure he/she felt the same as me when they saw them. An utter pain in the bum to apply and don’t look great when on! I tried and then peeled them off.

    MF01 Beetle Build

    Looks great! Really nice! I've run mine a few times now and it desperately needs oil shocks to replace the friction ones. What did you go for? I was thinking of 50746 (x2) or 54753. I am not sure the difference between the two, really.

    DF-01 Build project (Experimental!)

    That would be a good to see (a guide of sorts!).

    Tamiya TGS XBG Nitro restoration

    Thank you! I've seen the testers themselves for about £5, so I'll track down a cheaper one like you said, and since the Acoms boxes are about £8 themselves that will be handy! Thanks for your help, look forward to seeing the rest of this build!

    Please could you tell us where did you get the battery holder and wire/connector from? I'd like a servo tester but I'd like one of those battery holders, handy!
  15. Cheers! Sorry, do you know what sort of diameter (gauge?) wire I should get?
