  1. My Durga. I love it. I've dropped in 4.5T motor and paired with a 3s lipo it absolutely flies and is smooth as silk. Egress is a close second.
  2. So here is my plan. I picked up a tt02sr from rcjaz with some hopups. Im going to fit it up with a 17.5 and get it set up for some boinky at the local track. That going to be my next month or so. That will be my intro to touring racing. When the ta07msx comes out, I'm gonna get one of those too...maybe the wife and kids will get me one for Christmas. I'll definitely start a build thread in case anyone interested. Thanks for all the advice.
  3. I was around RC as a kid, but never had the money to buy anything...when pandemic hit, I figured I'd need something to keep me and my 6 year old occupied...so I bought a grasshopper. 8 months later I have 7. Hornet, egress, supershot, durga, hopped up tt02b and a df03. I've mainly been bashing them around my house. Going to get into touring cars as there is a indoor carpet track nearby and I think its time to compete and kick some a$$..lol. Also might get into higher end buggies like a tekno, kyosho or schumacher..I love the Durga more than the others and think belt driven cars are so smooth...think the Cat L1 evo is my next buggy.
  4. Hey there. I had the same experience and managed to fix most of it. Couple of suggestions... 1. Make sure your endpoints are setup right. J notice that the steering arm would bang up against the chassis if it is not set properly. I also upgraded the servo saver to the ramiya high torque servos saver. 2. Upgrade the linkages to the aluminum set. (O went hard on the upgrades as you'll see in my pics). 3. Replace the screws that hold down each of the pivot points. I noticed that those screws kept loosening while was driving. What j did was drilled through the chassis and replaced the screw with a longer screw and a nut. See pic. The pivot point stays tight now. 4. Upgrade the hex nut to aluminum... 5. I also upgraded the linkages but don't think that made much of a difference. Of all of these, I'd say the aluminum upgrade and the pivot screws made the biggest impact, but there is still some slop (like the guy above said, not a bad thing for a buggy).
  5. Actually not sure as I'm new to touring cars (and I'm going to be new to club touring racing). What should I look for in terms of a motor to be competitive at a club level The place near me is black carpet. My approach has always been that fastest is better which is probably not a good strategy for racing as there is a tradeoff between speed and handlng. I've seen the trf420...but I don't see it available anywhere. Its a beauty...if I thought I could get one i the next few weeks, I'd hold tight, but who knows when they'll be available again.
  6. Hi All. Would love some advice on touring cars. I've mainly focused on buggies this past while, but I'm looking to get into club racing, specifically the modified touring class. I've been looking at the following 2 (or 3) buggies, and don't really know how best to jump in and the pros/cons of each model. here goes...whats the main difference, pros/cons for the TRF419, the TA09RR and the TA09MS? Not really concerned about price, but want to make sure what I buy has support but will also be competitive. I would assume the TRF419 is probably the best of the bunch (I always wanted to buy a TRF model) but as I look thorugh, the TA09MS looks like it is newer, more advanced and is the next evolution of the TRF419. Its also pretty sweet looking. What are the main differences? Anyone have any advice for me?
