  1. Lengthening shocks and more grippy tires sounds the way to go. What’s generally the longest shocks we can go with on a TA02SW without having to change the front suspension arms/linkage? Also thoughts re slightly bigger wheels to improve clearance (without going into Ford F-150 territory)? Finally as part of the changes what to upgrade the stock motor (assume not going brushless) and move away from the retro manual speed servo (!) - any particular recommendations. I guess I will need to buy some new battery packs as well! i have some old bearings ‘hop ups’ but assume probably best to replace those as well. cheers
  2. Folllowing dusting down my old Taisan Starcard Porsche TA02SW I used to race in an indoor track (stock car) some 20 years ago, I want to give it a new lease of life with a focus for some off-roading. Ideally I want to retain some of the original aspects and not spend too much but struggling to decide what is the best route to go to get good ground clearance and can attack some jumps...! Current thoughts are: - TA02T Ford150 (which I understand perhaps maybe a relatively easy conversion) - truck style, but looks like it can handle some bumps - Manta Ray / blazing star (?) reminds me of my Madcap days but unsure where to start converting this (also understand chasis needs changing out as well) - TA02 rally spec, though it seems the rally cars don't achieve great ground clearance and thus not good on grass/bumps and small jumps Some advice/thoughts would be appreciated. Once decided I can then try and work out what I need to order to crack on with my rebuild!! p.s. found this some other threads related to this but nothing specific https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=48983&id=2193 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/89225-%C2%BB-the-definitive-df01ta012ff01-wheelbase-guide-%C2%AB/&tab=comments#comment-744136 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/70837-help-from-ta02-experts/
