    I took a second look in both manuals and it looks like they reused part of the CB mould, the parts tree looks identical. Hopefully that means that the arms will be cheaper and more easily available, I'd have some use for them as well๐Ÿ˜ btw, I like that the manual got released as a vector pdf. I'd wish to have more manuals in that quality, it's great for references.

    I just checked Comical Avante manual, it uses the same 48/45mm combination, so the arms should be similar.

    The arms look similar to comical chassis. They are definitely longer, since kit has 45mm driveshafts for the rear axle and 48mm for the front axle
  4. I remembered this topic, when I was working a new project. Crazy ideas keep coming. This is the latest one ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. Just wanted to write that. The closest thing to classic Tamiya FF, that's still available. FF-04 is basically an FF XV-01TC with carbon chassis.
  6. Thanks! Well, the driving is fun, drying the car afterwards, not so much ๐Ÿ˜€ Although the receiver is in a box and ESC should be waterproof, I don't like driving in wet conditions.
  7. V2 prototype is nearly finished This version has several improvements: - The most obvious is new vent over the motor. Its grill is a separate part that can be replaced with a fan to further improve cooling, which wasn't ideal on the V1. - the motor mount is now mounted from the outside. That necessitated a separate gear cover, which improves serviceability of M-chassis gears. Speaking of motor, it's now fixed via stock screws, and other non-original screws were eliminated as well. Also, the design can also supports mount made of aluminium sheet, which is something I'd like to do in the future. - motor is moved a few milimeters forward, which allowed me to add some material around gears, so they should be able to handle more power. - suspension mount is now a separate part. That opens more options for setup and makes repairs easier. - new design of suspension tower mounts. It supports layout from V1, but also M05 adjustable top links. Finally, I got rid of those weird extensions I still need to do some finishing touches, like drilling a new hole in the driveshaft, since rear bevel gear has been moved to the front - again. But the model itself went together well, maybe better than V1- after some adjustments, I may release it. Also, I played a bit with old rallyblock tires. So far, it looks promising. Unfortunately, winter has come here, so I won't be able to do any tests anytime soon.. well, time to work on another projects ๐Ÿคซ
  8. @Re-Bugged thank you. Now I'm waiting for some parts to arrive, then I can put your measurements to use
  9. Thanks @Re-Bugged, It'll help a lot. One more thing, could you also measure distance between the F/R mount screws?
  10. I'm doing some research for my next project - could anyone measure these dimensions on an M07/8 chassis? Thank you. And by chance, Does anyone have a model of other suspension parts (especially arms and arm mounts)?
  11. Disassembly didn't happen yet, I'm preparing some replacement parts... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. Kentech posted some photos of BT-01 from Tamiya fair. It really can be configured as front motor, rear wheel drive
  13. I didn't expect it to be this big ๐Ÿ˜€ But it's awesome
  14. Getting closer to finishing the model. The new design of damper stay is much more flexible than the previous version. In the basic form, it's similar to the previous version. But, as an option, there's second version that can hold ball joints for adjustable top links. That means, that It'll be fully compatible with various Tamiya suspension variants, including TL-01LA.
  15. I'd put more emphasis on cheap plastic. The biggest letdown about TT-02 is that it uses ABS all around. Even the fancy reinforced chassis is still ABS. Tamiya can do better than that. I understand that fiber reinforced plastics wear out molds, but even MF-01X has more varied use of plastic and metal parts.
