  1. Hey everyone… hoping for some help. I am wondering if the seals are re-usable or need to be replaced with every rebuild? If you can get them separately does anyone have the part numbers? I installed the oil filled diffs in my sons TT02B and the rear has a small leak so trying to figure out my options. Thank you!
  2. … also…. You can check out Robinson Racing pinions of you want to stick with the Tamiya mount. http://www.robinsonracing.com/catalog/one_eight_inch_bore_pinions.html
  3. Please correct me if I am wrong but thought the point of the high speed gear set was to be able to run a wide variety of spurs. So if you get the yeah racing motor mount and high speed gear set you can break free from Tamiya pinions. You can change to a 48p spur and then use 48p pinions for example. I have all this stuff on order for my sons TT02B so I hope I am correct… lol.
  4. Hmmm… it looks like they are the same as the Boomerang and maybe more. I would keep an eye out on ebay… some will show up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-Boomerang-Supershot-Hot-Shot-Aluminum-Drive-Shaft-Bones-ANSWER-Hop-Up-RC-/303820623999?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 I am not sure if new style bones would fit in older cups… maybe someone else can chime in there. If they do… they are easy to find. If you post the car on ebay for sale please DM me… it is the next on my wish list.
  5. Is it important to keep the parts original? It is pretty easy to upgrade to new outdrives, shafts and stub axles. Parts off the new re-re’s are all over.
  6. How is that drill method working out for you? I have read both sides… from don't ever clean up a comm like that… to you’ll get close to all your power back.
  7. I can speak to the Fox. I have been watching them for about a year and bought 2. I paid $140 last year for the first one and $160 a couple weeks ago for the second. They are both vintage and the first one was in MUCH better shape but still had cracks in the standard spots. Seems like you will be spending at least $140 for a somewhat decent complete vintage Fox. I do think it’s a good time to buy with spares and choice of buying vintage and restoring or just going the re-release route.
  8. Wow... really awesome.. thanks so much for sharing!!
  9. I too re-joined the hobby about a year ago. I have the DF03 and I got my son the TT02B. After a year of failure and upgrades I have my opinion of both. The DF03 is a “better” buggy in my opinion but it seems like aftermarket parts are getting hard to find. The ball diffs and tight tub make it a little tough on beginners. It has a reputation for being fragile and I have already snapped a rear gearbox and damper support. I have spent a decent amount of time and money on mine and it sure is fun to drive... just so smooth and in control. I cross my fingers it keeps on going. The TT02B has low ground clearance which bothered me so I got DF03 dampers and the Tamiya Hop Up supports as well as larger diameter tires. This helped tremendously. I also wanted it to go a little quicker so I went brushless. That led to me being paranoid about the diffs so I converted to oil filled. IMO this thing rips… its just an angry little ******. I turn the travel down for my son. I really have fun with both. I would say if you are into the “hunt” for parts and like to fix bugs… DF03. If you want to buy… hop up and abuse then TT02B. Bringing them both to an indoor clay track for the first time this weekend. Curious to see how long they go before breaking… lol.
  10. Looks like the GF-01 is part# 50808 which is the same as what I ordered and James recommended… thank you for the additional option! I hope my master plan comes together. I normally don’t stray to far from the manual but this site is a bad influence… lol
  11. Ok... looks like the TL01 uses the 50823 axles stock... ordered up these longer ones... thank you @InsaneJim69
  12. So... you mean I could have just googled "Tamiya Long Wheel Axle" instead of starting an new thread? ... Ok.. dumb question #2... Would you know if they fit TA01 uprights?
