    The TB Chassis Thread

    I'd say that Evo6 and TB04 are just as related as Evo3 with TB02. Evo5 and 7 are similar to TB03 and 05, although there aren't many parts carried from one to another. So only Evo2 and Evo4 don't have cheaper equivalent.

    The TB Chassis Thread

    I meant part #51351, Evo7 have different, aluminum part. But gears are same as TB04

    The TB Chassis Thread

    All TBs from 03 onwards have same diff gearcases, with exception of Evo7. Only difference is, that 04 have 40T bevel, so it will requie different shimming. Also you have to shave some material from input shaft, otherwise it will scrub on differential. What was your problem with ball diff? I coverted mine to 2,5mm screw and TRF502 gears and it worked flawlessly.

    M-07 Mini Chassis

    Hello, could someone measure centre-to-centre distance of front hinge pins for me? Thanks.

    XV-01 Help

    - TC variant have spool at front, differetial is more advisable for gravel. - XV-01 rear axle have longer wheel axle and shorter swing shaft, than TC. Also, IIRC, std XV01 uses 42mm front swing shafts, while TC uses 44mm. You'll also need shorter inner suspension shafts for XJ/XM mounts. I think it'd bee easier to keep TC suspension and just cut it a little to get enough suspension travel. It's easy to get over 25mm ride height

    58669 M-08 Chassis Kit confirmed

    Looks like Gearbox have something like "4 gear" layout to increase traction.
  7. Yes, this should work..
  8. You can build your own. You just need TRF417 wheel axle and cross joint and 42mm swing shaft.

    anyone heard of Spec-R?

    I think that first TRF417 gear diff from Tamiya (#42185) was actually rebadged Spec-R unit

    TA-01 Turning Yellow

    I think that Traxxas made yellow brushed ESC in the past. And I've seen Savox servo with yellow anodizing, but that won't be cheap

    Recommend me rally block tyres please?

    Normal tamiya blocks are too hard. Years ago, we were using tamiyablock copies, which used softer compound. Those were best tires, but they are not available anymore. However, new Tamiya "Softblock" could be something similar. From first reports, they might have right compound.

    Speedy's FGX EVO 2018 Build Thread

    Always liked FGX, maybe for its seemigly unecessary complexity. Makes me wondering, why Tamiya didn't come with something similar, since overengineered cars are Tamiya's thing. Or atleast independend suspension RWD touring.

    M-08 predictions?

    It depends on available bodies. IIRC, only 1/10 210mm FWD was Mini, which Tamiya doesn't make anymore. It made M07 simplier, so it was logical to not include 210mm variant. They did same thing with M04. M08 might be different. Tamiya might still re-release A110 and Abarth 1000 and RWD drivetrain needs more complex system of wheelbase change, which might allow all 3 wheelbases.
  14. 3racing makes foam bumper for M05. It could fit to MF.

    M-08 predictions?

    I think that M08 will be designet with same "cage frame" chassis as TA07. That makes plenty of space for different layouts Your conversion looks great

    M-08 predictions?

    I agree with that. However, M-chassis are aimed as budget cars, so I doubt it will have more parts than neccesary. But when you look how M-chassis gearing works, it shouldn't be that hard to design one gearbox, that can be used for both layouts.
  17. What's wheelbase of standard TA02 then? Because difference between rear arms is larger than 2mm... TA02T uses TA01 suspension in front, too. TA02 front axle has longer arms, which is compensated with narrow knuckles. Does this affect wheelbase, too?
  18. Which RSR? 934 or 911? For both you'll need shorter TA02 tub. 934 was sold on TA02S, which is TA02 with rear arms from TA01. Wheelbase is 236mm 911 should fit to TA02T, which is TA02 with TA01 arms, but rear arms flipped to increase wheelbase to ~250mm (not sure, what exact wheelbase is, Tamiya says 255mm, but I'm certain it's closer to 250)

    TA-01 Turning Yellow

    These are TA02/03/CC01 knuckles. They give you ~10mm narrower front, if you use them with TA01 arms. DF01/TA01 use two 1150 and same wheel axles as rear hubs.

    TA-01 Turning Yellow

    Aren't blue knuckles TA02 part, meant for "long span" front suspension arms? I think that TA01 suspension uses DF01 knuckles.

    Project RR-03Ra - Converting a TRF201 into a rally car

    It looks nice You can still add ackermann by moving ball studs to rearward position on steering rack and/or to forward position on knuckles.

    Rally car - TB01 or TT02 Type S?

    TT02B uses shell as dust cover. If it can be fitted to road TT02, it will be as dustproof as TB01

    Rally car - TB01 or TT02 Type S?

    Nope, TRF works with standart driveshafts even after filing to ~25mm. You are right about shock, but some gain can be achieved with long ball Connectors. Cracking of hubs can be solved with soft hubs from TB03.

    How do you mean that there's no Fat Fox? It's in the picture Buggyra is pronounced same as Baghira from Jungle book. They started as Baghira racing, but changed it in 2000's

    Random hand waving: TB05 could be new DB03?

    I think that TB05/Evo7 style, with various layouts (standard/short/saddle), which uses mix of already existing parts would be great addition to Tamiya family. However, i think that TB05 differential cases are not greatest choice for such task. Something more similar to TRF502, but wide enough to fit gear diff, would be great.
