  1. Robbe ‘92 / ‘96 tamiya guide book 93 20€ per piece Robbe 25€ Tamiya open for bulk offers
  2. I guess the top speed in this video was 70-80kmh on 2s. this was still the tble01 and tblm 8T 5700kv motor.
  3. These are the calculations on 60T 64P Pinion and 72T 64P Spur. I have two tire options. 3s speed calculation with 58mm Foam Tires /// 63mm Rubber Threaded TIres 58mm3s >> 155.9 KM/H /// 96.9 MPH 63mm3s 169.4 KM/H /// 105.3 MPH 2s calculations 58 mm /// 63 mm 58 mm 104 KM/H /// 64.6 MPH 63 mm 112.9 KM/H /// 70.2 MPH
  4. Thank you, I may investigate the tack-it option. I can expect to have greater tire wear on the front tires, but this should be better.
  5. I stil would prefer putty as ži have read only pro's for it rather the con's. I have to buy it anyway, so it does not matter. But oil does leak tiny bits, this is mostly why. Are there any comments on the 72T / 60T spur pinion ratio? At this moment, I am not even sure if it will fit. It does look like there is enough place, but tbh I don't know the 60T 64P pinon width. I just hope it will not need a kick-start to start driving. 3,80 FDR is not that low, or is it? I know in racing the FDR is limited to somewhat around 4 FDR When we used to do speed run in the beggining, We used F104 and F103's with ratios around 2 and lower in FDR. I still have on my F103 35 / 90 T 64P. having no gearbox thats 2,57 FDR, slower in lower and mid speeds, but on high speed top speed burst immidately. a 13,5 T sensored trackstar 80A esc combo limited to 2S. Due to the nature of the chassis, It's hard with a F103 (F104 conversion 170mm width) to keep stable on high speeds, top speed with crash on the F103 is 86kmh. 82kmh without crash. On 2S with gyro. I like how the FF03 is FWD and still such an amazing chassis, the gearbox is great in my opinion, such layout of gears has also been seen buggy, isn't it?
  6. Thank you. You can glue the stock plastick ball diff, I done it. Glue + a small screw throught the whole thing. But in the gear diff no chance. Its a nice mechanical piece. I think I will just go with for example Tamiya 42212 or similar https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/42212/index.htm
  7. tamiya 54471 steel gear diff with steel cups is installed. Not sure what putty to use, do you have a link?or do you use oil only? Can you recommend thicker oil?
  8. Sold recently some97 kyosho catalogs, while looking further I have found some more. Willing to take for a lot less, but €25 per piece.
  9. These two are pretty rare in this condition and hop ups together. Eyes on the S18 TC, that comes race ready for the touring S18 class, two aluminum rare Atomic Ball Differentials adjustable, rare LRP Hop Up motor part nr. 112218 (black can), original RARE LRP AI Automatic MICRO brushed ESC, rare stabilizer bar, 9 mm hex like xray 18, everything body, electronics, chassis pristine condition race ready. Needs a new rear right hub, but nothing serious. Considering the hop ups and rareness of them. the LRP S18 Buggy is pure stock in original prestine condition. Fully functional, stock silver can, LRP brushed AI V2 ESC, Perfect condition body. Both are great cars, brushless capable but have never been run as such, both have high speed steel pinions, ball bearings and lots of adjustability options on the chassis. Made in Germany. http://www.rcracer.com/2009/11/lrp-s18tc-tuning-and-spare-parts/ Kind regards,
  10. Thank you for pointing that out. It did happen to us already, 2–3 times the car caught air time and landed on its roof. Definitly it would be good to cut down on rear downforce. It did never happen to the FF03 it's quite nose heavy but still it could act as an aerodynamic break. This is the old body I used to drive on speed runs. And a picture of the previous chassis setup. I believe the 8T is rated around, 5700kv, but I used at this time a 35T 48P pinion with 68T 48P spur. 103kmh on 3 s. Now I will be running a 10T with 4300kv, that should improve torque ability but is it enough for 60T 64P and 72T 64P ?? That's 1.20 FDR in total 3.80 Final. I also ordered these parts together with the TRF418 carbon reinforced uprights off RCMART. To improve steering abilities and cooling.
  11. I was thinking this could do it? Not to expensive to crash at 25€
  12. Correct, thank you. As I understood, this diff putty is less viscous as oil. Would close the diff more than just oil, which annoyingly leaks in micro amounts. I did run already speed runs on the stock built diff. I guess it was pretty open with stock oil which came with it. eventually, using putty will eliminate the process of purchasing new oil seals for the diff housing.
  13. Hi, some may remember my account. I haven't been active lately, life obligations got onto me, good ones tho. A friend (John, later in text) and I are back on the speed run thread. After a pause in this hobby, John decided to make his comeback with a Xray T2 007 and a brand-new factory built 3Racing Sakura Advance S, as I understand it is a decent entry level race car. Nothing too fancy, I don't know his final setup yet, but I want to give this challenge a try with my old FF03 that in the last speed run challenge hit 103km/h. I think it was 2020 when we had the last challenge... John drove a AE TC6.1 with a 3s setup and managed to achieve a speed of 113km/h, while my FF03 achieved 103km/h. I don't remeber the rations now, but my setup was a 3s Tamiya TBLE01 / TBLM01 8T sensorless brushless combo. This time it is similar (I unfortunately sold the tble01 combo) with a Carson Dragster 10T motor, it is actually a rebranded TBLM01 10T. I can guarantee this, as the ESC Dragster Carson is identical to a TBLM01. I can not use the TBLE01 esc, it burnt out and haven't found somebody experienced enough to reroute the connection and restore the board. (picture below) https://imgur.com/Xxq94ZH Anyways, the setup China ESC 120A 2-4S (4s will be eventually used, chaos mode ) Carson Dragster 10T 4300kv 2-3S (4s will probably work also but once ) Savox 1252MG (low profile servo, mounted with @wtcc5's technique) GEAR RATION: Spur 64P 72T //// Pinion 64P 60T /// FDR 1.20 diff Spur 52T /// Pinion 20T /// FDR 2.60 FDR: 3.80 (this should on 3s run 103MPH /// 172km/h) There is a Yeah Racing diff set with a 50T diff spur, that would bring the FDR down to 3.70. I already have the tamiya 54471 steel gear diff. My question where I need advice is, what kind of gear diff putty should I use or only oil? if oil? what kind of oil? I obviously will not be racing through corners, I need something that will hold stable under load in straight runs. and please share thoughts and ideas about this setup. 72T 64P vs 35T 48P (for reference) The Chassis Since this will be a 100MPH run, I have put a bit of thermal paste on the heat sink for MAX efficiency The motor The ESC ( ) funny how it can be the same price for 45A 60A 80A and 120A, this is a hit-and-miss Other parts on order This is what racing on a budget looks like if this thing hits anything near 100kmh I will be more than happy. Taking suggestions for body choice!! Tire recommendations are also welcome!
  14. I am not from UK, but I‘d still like to offer my FF03, I am from Europe and am happy to ship first so you could check on my item first.
  15. Hi folks, would somebody happen to know what kind of micro chip am I missing here? could this be fixed? apparently the esc got hot and the small micro chip melted himself into the plastic. while taking it apart, it ripped itself out i believe its on the battery lead ports? the esc had trouble to work with 3s but did fine with 2s any ideas?
  16. Where do you live? That sounds really cheap and not real.
  17. Any interest? Best offer prices starts at 40€ + shipping thank you for looking
  18. Do not forget Tamiya is japanese, I dont think they can do what Lego did. I guess the mentality is just different. Japanese marketing vs European. How popular is lego in japan? as for the age that appeal’s to this hobby, a lot of older people I have met in our rc club are really against tamiya, and are not recommending them. But that is a racing point of view, you cant race a TT02 or TB03, I know people on this forum have done it. But still how does a tb03 even worse tb04 compare to a Xray T1 not to mention the T4. It couldn’t be compared in my opinion. on the other hand, I have been lately into crypto, and boy is that a mess over-there. Young people investing, playing P2E video games… idk but what do you all think about a hobby that brings passive income or RC cars that literally waste your money. for me I got into this hobby at the age of 8-11, stopped for while and got back to it at the age of 26.
  19. Have a look at the link, I am looking to get 300€ More or less with shipping. https://www.njuskalo.hr/rc-modeli/genesis-1122-catamaran-racing-boat-8s-70km-h-oglas-36610947
  20. I am at this point not interested to buy such a model. I like the 1:8 scale, would be a first timer for me. but at this moment, I am tinkering of buying all the parts and then eventually sell for a slightly higher price as a lot. but on the other hand I might build it. I am still researching the brand Hachette, they are as I understand a french company. I cant find any build sets, only this magazines and parts. Every car is supposed to be high quality and licensed. can somebody point me out here… how many models did they make? What was the first one… should I maybe open another topic for Hachette or is there a forum?
  21. Hey, so I have started collecting Hachette magazines, they provide 100 magazines with car parts. so when I buy all 100 magazines this year. I will be able to put together a 1/8 Zastava 750 (basically a fiat 500). I was surprised by the size… 1/8 scale… will weight about 5kg and cost… the most amazing part for me… about 950€
  22. I was working for Sixt a couple of years. we had bunch of Astras, petrol, diesel, automatic, estate, hb, sedan… very comfortable cars and very low fuel consuption. but eh… did we have problems with them. Bad AC, batterys tend to die more often then on other cars. The insignia 2.2 diesel automatic has only 6 speeds. That was bad too. now the peugeot has its fingers in… the 208 and new Corsa are identical cars. Probably would not recommend. Peugeot did step up their car game. But still as you said… those 1.2 engines are a pain to drive.
