  1. I have a ta02 and m03 I want to rebuild. I bought my first tamiya stadium blitzer back in the early to mid 90's. I wish I had that one. Th traxxas cars are pretty solid. I currently only have the trx4 crawler and it is very solid. Previous were first gent stampede and emaxx. Also had a 2wd slash. I also have an old rc10 buggy. Most of my collection are tamiya though. TA02,TA06,TA07, FF04 EVO, M03 and M07. had a CC01 but ended up using it in a partial trade for the trx.
  2. Thank you. It drives awesome. It had alot more grip than I thought. It really it's an amazing kit. I picked it up when tamiya was having a sale and it worked out perfect since I've had it in the wishlist for to long lol.
  3. I used my ff04evo in usgt for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it was great. I've always used my m03 and m07 but this was so much better. I am currently using the trf420 chubs on the original arms. I just reamed out the outer hole to 3mm and filled the inside of the arm a bit. Great to see these fronties.
  4. Thank you differe the info. I mainly race on carpet and with the stiffeners the car has barely any flex. I may get the trf suspension upgrade. I actually have trf420 chubs on 419 arms on my ff04 but have yet to try them out. Thanks again, Joe
  5. You seem to have the most detailed info on this conversion. Nice job on your build! I've been wondering on doing this myself since used trf kits are still up there in price and I don't race enough to justify a new chassis. What is your race ready weight? battery weight? I plan on using this in usgt and the minimum is 1380 grams. My ta07 is fine in it's current form but I know the carbon cars are typically significantly lighter. Thanks, Joe
  6. I don't have as many cars as some of you but I would say I have just 2 I have an old TA02 I want to restore and my M03 to disassemble and have a good go through.
  7. This is a great tip! tires fit better in the openings.
  8. As nabler37 mentioned is what I did. I used my dremel with a barrel sander. Another option is to use nimh style lipo packs https://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/product_view.asp?p_id=14755 then you won't have to cut anything.
  9. Also I must say the box stock the ta07 is a better car. Im not ready to shelf the 06 though lol
  10. Thanks guys! I appreciate the welcome. Thunder dragon- I've bean messing with 06 fir a bit. Currently Shocks-500cst springs f-hard rear- soft Trf 418 arms with the trf front medium stabilizer and medium rear ta06 stabilizer. Front shocks 3 hole in and same in rear 3mm droop front and rear FF-A, RF A RR-E RF-XA 5000 CST rear diff Front spool but went back to 500k front diff due to front wheel chatter with the spool due to lack of dcjs The car does very good for me on this set up. On the asphalt the front spool works better. I am no racer but at events I got some great tuning tips veteran racers and made it my own. Mine started as a pro with the ifs and after coming across speedys ta06r build I got inspired and turned mine into an r.
  11. Hello members, I just wanted to introduce my self and to say thank you. This site had been a great resource for a while before signing up and I'm sure it still will be. I currently have an M03,M07, TA02,6,7 and wish I still had my CC01. My first was a stadium blitzer way back late 80's I believe.
