  1. Hi All, I am working to finish my first kit and already dreaming about my second build. My first build is a TT-02 99 Subaru Monte Carlo. Thinking of a M07 for the second build. Is it best to buy a M07 Chassis and buy the body separately ? I am not finding kits chassis and body Tamiya 58647 M-07 Concept M-Chassis Kit ($160 plus shipping) Thank you !
  2. Dear @Juhunio I am working to finish my first kit and already dreaming about my second build. My first build is a TT-02 99 Subaru Monte Carlo. Thinking of a M07 for the second build. I think your list makes a lot of sense. Cheers
  3. Hi @djmcnz Sorry to say the TT02 does not have any adjustment for even out left and right sides. @alvinlwh suggested that I move the servo horn one tooth to the left. I will try that in the morning. Cheers.
  4. Thank you @alvinlwh ! That sound like it will work. I will try tomorrow and report back. Very much appreciated ! Cheers
  5. Dear Jardasius, The front wheels. The right front wheel is pointed a few mm more to the right than the left wheel. Thank you !
  6. Dear @alvinlwh Thank you. The car pulls to the right. The right front wheel is visibly slightly pointed more right than the left wheel. Or in other words the wheels are not parallel, the right wheel is pointed more to the right than the left wheel. I do not see any way to adjust the wheels to be parallel. Cheers
  7. Thank you @TurnipJF Any suggestions on how to true the wheels to parallel ? The car pulls to the right and the right front wheel is visibly pointed more right than the left wheel. I just ordered the Yeah Racing Adjustable Steering Tie-Rod Set For Tamiya TT02 ($12 with shipping) Do you know of an inexpensive kit to Front Upper Suspension Arm (like the TT-02S) and adjust rear toe-in ? Thank you ! Cheers

  9. Hi All, Yesterday I took the TT-02 chassis out of the first drive all seemed to work well, except tracking in a straight line. Even with adjusting the steering trim the can will not track straight. I do not find any adjustments for toe-in or toe-out. Do I need to add adjustable tie-rods ? Yeah Racing Adjustable Steering Tie-Rod Set For Tamiya TT02 ($7.90 plus shipping) Tamiya TT-02B Full Trunbuckle Set ($15.20 plus shipping) Not sure if they will fit listed for TT-02B. I would prefer a kit like this as seven piece for front and rear suspension and servo. All the other kits are surprisingly expensive. Thank you all for the guidance ! I could not have completed the chassis without your support. Very much appreciated ! I need to paint the body and apply the stickers. Cheers
  10. Thank you @InsaneJim69 ! I made the edits in the the Introduction above, Very much appreciated. Cheers
  11. Please tell me if you have any feedback, thank you ! DRAFT Beginners Guide to Radio Control (RC) Cars I. Introduction: Radio control (RC) cars are a great way to learn problem solving, engineering, electronics, physics and have fun racing your friends. I started off this journey knowing next to nothing about radio control (RC) cars. I had gone to a local park and there was a race of Suzuki Swift RC cars on the basketball court. When I got home I looked up "Suzuki RC Car" and found that Tamiya makes the (M-03, M-05 and M-07 chassis, front wheel drive) car that was being raced. The research led me to the Tamiya website, RC cars are categorized by scale 1:8, 1:10, 1:12, 1:14 are the most common scales, although there are larger and there are smaller scale cars. RC cars are specialized by use, on-road racing, off-road racing, bashing (having fun), and speed runs. Powering the cars are either electric batteries or nitro fuel. There are car chassis differences of front wheel drive, rear wheel drive and 4WD. Within the chassis differences there is shaft drive and belt drive, distinguishing how the power is transferred from the motor (electric batteries or nitro fuel) to the wheels. RC cars also come either Ready to Run (RTR) or kit built. There are many manufacturers of RC cars including Tamiya, Associated, Xray, Xpress, Yokomo, Kyosho, Losi, etc., brands tend to concentrate in a category, racing off road, or nitro bashing, etc.. Next we will cover the parts of the RC car. II. Resources to Get Started (Websites, Hobby Stores) III. Parts of the RC Car IV. Driving V. Building VI. Racing Associations VII. Racing Classes

  13. Hi All, Yesterday I picked up the 99 Subaru Monte Carlo TT-02 from the post office. Turns out that yes, the kit includes the Tamiya ESC (oh well I will have an extra ESC). Last night started building, so far so good. Thank you all for the support ! Tamiya TT02D DriftSpec Build Part 1 is a great video for Noobs like me !
