  1. Sorry about that, did not realize there are many people from around the world on this forum, U.S. Dollars, and price is shipped within u.s. , updated the post. thanks
  2. New in box Ta07 Pro chassis kit + 8 pieces of Tamiya hop ups. Asking $290 shipped in U.S.
  3. I was debating between the infraction or limitless, went ahead and got the limitless, still on preoder, hopefully will get it before end of month, I bought on ebay the same 6s system used in the infraction, for 120 shipped, Theres still some avaliable, Arrma 185 ESC and arrma 2050KV motor, they are selling them for halfprice, since I believe these were the motors/ESC pulled out of the Arrma Nero's due to the lawsuit with traxxas, they are new just pulled out of the RTR models, so they are selling them on ebay cheap, same system in my Kraton 6s, and that thing is plenty fast as is stock. So for the price I said why not get another setup like that and try it out in the Limitless, if anything I can keep it around as a spare, and only need a motor upgrade since the ESC is pretty strong to handle a bit more powerful motor, I think.
  4. Thanks again, what do you think of this motor setup or soemthing alike,, or just the ESC to pare with another size motor. will this work in both the TT02 and the TA07, I think the motor is too big of a size , the ESC should work though right? thanks. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Arrma-BLX100-Brushless-2-3S-ESC-3200kv-Motor-Granite-Senton-Big-Rock-Typhon-3S/123566940466?epid=2298512166&hash=item1cc529e132:g:az8AAOSw8YRc24X0:sc:USPSPriorityMailPaddedFlatRateEnvelope!85383!US!-1
  5. Hey Jon, definitely alot for me to take in at once haha, but im getting the hang of it, So do I need two sets of the 54172, and two sets of the suspension mount( the single long bar). Also how do I go about swapping the gear, got any part number to look at? Thanks again,
  6. Again thanks everyone, huge help appetite it very much. Makes this alot more enjoyable then having to stress on what to buy. Do you have an part numbers on them Jon, or any other recommended basic ones for the TA07 to get while im at it, tried looking for most you'rs not sure if im getting all the right ones?, no worries if not i know its not a quick task to gather them, so after getting a tt02 and now the TA07, what motor/ motor sizes would you recommend in either chassis, and what esc system would you guys run / recommend / good brands to look at. as well as servos I planned to buy a med to high grade sanwa controller soon also.
  7. Thank you for the tips and advice guys, I think I will start with another simple tt02 model to get some practice and fun out of it, So i will probably buy a tt02 one of the suabru kits, maybe the WRC inspired one for 135$, any small upgrades I should do on this car while im building it, I dont mind spending a few extra bucks, I know i need bearings forsure, anyone have a build thread they can link me to or just a small parts list, anything to help. So i have been convinced on the TA07 Pro model from what you guys said so far and what I've read on them so far, and well i pulled the trigger on this kit brand new for 235$ total price including all those hop ups in the other picture, i added them up to be around 130$worth aswekk, did I make out pretty good on that deal for that? So what body shell fits this car? does the tt02 body fit it? do I need to get a TA05 or TA06 body shell, any other models I cant seem to find a list? Also I want to be prepared for this, do these kits include all the Oil, greases, and stuff I need, or do I need to buy some of that separate,. Ive been looking into the tools part, Im just not to familiar with the fluids needed like diff oil, shock oils ect. Thank you again guys.
  8. Not sure how I butchered the above post, wasnt able to change it, but my comment is in the quote under Johnathon
  9. Hello, I am new to RC car building and wanted to get into it. Over a year ago I got a Arrma Kraton 6s 1/8 truck which is just an absolute amazing truck to drive and bash around in its RTR form it amazed me and i couldn't ask for more from it, I am leaving this stock until anything breaks and it is holding up amazingly. I plan to buy a Arrma Limitless roller when its available also to build a high speed car. I wanted to get more into road racing cars and the building aspect, I am a big fan of Subaru's, so to get me started and because I am a big Subaru fan I bought a Tamiya XB Series NBR WRX STI TT02, I got it for a good deal NIB ready to run, since I didn't really want to jump into a building kit my first car I just wanted to have a fun little car to drive around the house at first and it did just that, it is awesome as is but I want to look into modding/ customizing and making it quicker especially later on. I am even almost wanting to start a small collection of specifically Subaru inspired rc cars.I would like to pick a good chassis to start with and possibly build most cars with the same chassis. Ive looked into making a rally one and came across the XV01 chassis which is designed for rally with its covered body but this is another story I guess. Having a hard debate between getting into building a kit and which one, or just buying RTR stuff like my Kraton. It seems like a lot of work which I dont mind, it looks fun to me, I just dont know what ill be expecting on the way ive seen a couple build threads at most. So if thees anyone that has gone thru this experience and would like to help me go down a good route on getting started please give me you're thoughts. is tt02 good to build off of and continue building with, is there way better options for someone like me to go off of, seems the tt02 is a older chassis, Ive seen all the new spec'd ones the S , D, R, RR, should I be choosing one of these kits instead of trying to do something like, a yeah racing full aluminum upgrade, is this even worth at this point or is it only necessary to buy one the spec'd models. Also threes alot of models ive read on and newer ones ive read on like TA07 TA06 ect, ? I defiantly want the better car in the end or the car that can do more. I already have a tt02 STI NBR in its stock form. It looks good but i really don't know much about them,t I want to start a fresh car build kit and want somewhere to start that I dont have to eventually move on from since its so limited on what the car can do. Should I stick with the tt02's, or are there way better options to look at and consider? Thank you, sorry if my post sounds dumb im just in a stump on what to buy.
