  1. Hello Tamiyaclub! I've been an Avid Tamiya fan for 25 years, and have been on this site daily for years. It's about time I finally got off my duff and started posting. This is is finished project, but thought I'd post the build here to catch up, as well as set the stage for any future changes. I love working on these little trucks - no two are the same in the end. Pretty sure there's not another going to be one like this out there anywhere. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's what I started with. A rough chassis that was used pretty hard as an FJ in a previous life. (Actually, this was about 1/2 way through mockup. ...) This chassis had a homebrew gear reduction that I worked up with some 5mm bore pinions and some spare parts. I've never ran it, but it tests out nice and smooth. It's about 2.5:1 as it stands, but I can change the pinions to vary the ratios. Nice little mod for about $10 in parts. I wanted to go a different route here, so I dug through my big Tamiya suspension box and found some old Wild Dagger/TL01B arms and hubs and made everything fit. Works out to a 220mm width from hex face to hex face so it's about Axial XR mod width (ish). Rear is spaced out with some hex wideners (for now) Dug around for some shocks in my big box of mostly old shocks, and found some Kyosho shocks from a Nitro ZR-1 Vette that have amazingly held oil for nearly 25 years, and were in very good shape. They were close enough for the rear. Some old kinda matching Kyosho nitro TR-15 shocks were the perfect size for the front. They have a built in notched adjuster for preload that is so simple and handy that every shock should come like this. In any case, I cleaned them up, dumped out the oil from both sets, drilled the pistons for crawler duty, and filled them both with 20wt oil. Started with the stock CC01 shocks out front and some Wraith purple springs out back. Total guess on the setup...very much subject to change. Rear shocks for mounted to some old CR01 (staying in the family this time!) chassis parts modded for shock tower duty and braced up for stiffness. Cleaned the chassis up quite a bit here too. Fuel tank here maybe? Fronts get Hot Racing aluminum mounts up top (some upgrades I apparently forgot to rob for my other CC's) which give 3 different upper mount locations. I made a front tie bar to stiffen everything up as well. Really, it was just an excuse to drill up some speed holes. While I was at it, I made a new radio plate just for giggles. Here's where this is going kinda maybe sorta not sure yet but I like it:

  3. I have a few projects going on at the moment and I've been meaning to start a build thread for a while. I will post about the cars as I'm working on them, some may take much longer than others and some may never get finished . Here's what I currently have in the fleet, if anyone would like to see or ask a question about a specific car just shout. TT01 - Countersteer drift car. TA02 SW - Built chassis intended as a shelf queen but I messed up the body so need to buy another. Bruiser - Part assembled for almost a year. CC01 - Built chassis (stalled camera car project). TA02 SW - 40th Anniversary still in box. FF03 - Speed run car (*worlds fastest FF03 82Mph) F103 GT - Built chassis with Mugen body currently a shelf queen but intended for speed runs. TRF 419x - Built chassis planned for 17.5T blinky club racing. M05r vII - In progress. TT02 - Stalled speed project, either TT02s conversion or shelf. TB04 Evo IV - Silver can challenge car, current fastest silver can powered Tamiya at (44.8Mph) TRF 418 - Speed run project car going for triple digits and current fastest Tamiya Club Car (85.5Mph) (94.8Mph) I'll start with the M05. I'm working on a Swift body for it and at the decal stage but need to visit my friend and get some more vinyl cut but here it is as of today. It's a V2 R kit with lots of nice Hop Ups included from Tamiya so the only additional parts are carbon towers, hollow carbon gear shaft and 3Racing graphite side trays. I ordered the towers before I built the car and have discovered that the front tower is completely pointless. I just noticed that to fit the 3Racing side trays I need to drill the chassis holes for the mount to sit flush . The pointless front shock tower: The side tray problem: Chassis: It was a nice build overall and I'm very much looking forward to running it. My current plan is to finish the body and then decide on the motor but at the moment I'm thinking about a 2s, 3.5T setup . EDIT *Wild claims relating to having the worlds fastest 2s FF03 are to the best of my knowledge correct at time of posting.
  4. My first CC-01 and what a treat it was to build. Here's pics of start to finish. After this initial post, I intend to follow up with pics/video of it in use when time allows, as well as questions on future mods and changes. Photobucket has pretty much destroyed all of the good CC01 threads, so maybe we can make a new one that covers everything. We'll discuss the goods, the bads, what to mod, and what not to mod. Feel free to post pics of your CC01 mods or just show off your CC01 in general. Pics of my build: I added a 65T RC 4WD Crawler motor. Following the advice of several YT videos, I took out the slack in the rear diff using bushings and a washer. Also, both front and rear diff are locked. I locked the front diff using the method where you add an extra spider gear. I used AW Grease to seal up the rear diff and front gear covers. The only change I have made to the suspension so far is that I added the Stroke Extension Kit. Body is all trimmed up. I may remove the front bumper in the future. I can see how it could get hung up on obstacles, and I also can now see why everyone cuts the front brick. Showing a bit of articulation. I didn't take any pics of the electronics, but I am using the Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 Waterproof ESC. I have a spare receiver box from a TT02B that I sealed up my receiver in. I'll be smearing a light coat of clear silicone around the seams of the receiver box just to make sure water doesn't get in. The body is painted. While painting it, I also painted a new body for my M06 chassis. Stickers are complete. Some pics from the back yard. My next question pertains to springs/shocks. Would longer dampers give me more height, or would I be better off going with the Tamiya barrel springs for better choice of spring rate?
  5. Picked up another New Bright Discovery shell few weeks ago and set about stripping, prep and primered....on to colour choice Wasn't sure which way to go until I saw my friends Pajero so choice made Going to keep this pretty scale looking with some new SDI tyres added
  6. Hloo! This post contains my experience/thoughts on: *Brushless 10.5 motor in a CC-01 ...hehehe *Soft spots on the CC-01... what have broken during my bashing... oops *Mud, puddles, grass and Mud flaps (home made) - what difference does it make? ------------- So, I've been using my CC-01 Pajero Rally Sport to play garden rally. A rally car isn't a crawler, so when my hobby store had a sale i naturally purchased a 10.5T brushless(the limit of the TBLE-02s i think) for laughs. And boy, did and do i laugh! Hehe, i can rarely push the pedal to teh metal so to speak, but it actually gives me more satisfaction to hold back a little and push the limits in every corner than just apply full throttle all the time. It takes some skill to maneuver an overpowered beast And of course it sometimes results in death defying spins, rolls, flips and crashes... but my inner kid likes that now and then. This sturdy little thing can take it... most of the time... Since i started my rally career i have broken some parts... but very few.... and this was actually before the 10.5, it was with the stock motor.The first thing to go was the ... uhm.. Skid-plate? i ran full speed into a concrete stone. After two CA-gluing sessions without success, i managed to repair with cable ties so i could play while i waited for the aluminum spare. I also broke the "knuckle arms" (?) where i had to drill new holes for the steering linkage, easy fix. For the long run i got some aluminum spares. I mean, who doesn't like to buy and upgrade stuff? I waterprotected my esc with liquid tape (golly, that was some sticky messy mess, and not really easy to do if you ask me) and got me a water-protected servo and protected my receiver in a removable two-barrier-box super invention. Mud and puddles here i come! Fun fun fun! But i was a bit disappointed by all the muck I had to clean inside afterwards, ....so I made some mud flaps from an inside rubber tube from a car tire (?). The mess was significantly less, but still required some cleaning . Might have to refine... Although most people seem to be using their cc-01 as crawlers or alike... i wholeheartedly recommend it as a full speed insanity rally machine... All in all, the CC-01 is a lovely car to drive like a maniac. And last.. I am not sure it comes through in the text above, but i really really really like the CC-01. It gives great pleasure to build, tinker with and customize - "how can i improve this?". And i just had to get another one, a FJ Cruiser in which i installed lights and stock motor, my kids love to drive it. Who knows, i might even get a third to crawl with UPDATE! So, the driveshaft could not handle the 10,5t... It went to pieces in the obvious places. But the rest is still going strong hehe...
  7. Hello again friends and welcome to my most recent build. I was going to name this one "What Tamiya could have and should have" just because of my disappointment when this model was originally released. OK, so let's start. When Tamiya first released the Volkswagen Amarok, it was on the WT01 chassis, and it was meant to emulate this truck: In my opinion, Tamiya completely missed the mark when they released a 2wd WT01 version of this vehicle: It's not even the right color!
  8. Regretfully I have to sell my Discovery LR3 Chassis is used but maintained, front and rear diffs locked, front brick removed with custom front, 4 link suspension, rear shocks moved inward for better flex, extended prop shaft, hobbyking waterproof servo, Novak terra claw motor. Electrics cased in a sealed box for waterproofing (you will need to reseal, silicon sealer works great) Body is a new bright discovery, custom made headlights, clear windscreen and front windows removed (can fit clear if required) Wheels are 5 spoke tamiya with fastrax kongs I can include a tamiya teu-101bk esc (but would recommend getting a quikrun 1060 as its a great crawler esc) and an orange gr300 2.4ghz rx nice trail rig and will perform better than a standard CC01. for the record if I was keeping it I'd buy a junfac or other extended prop. selling only as I haven't room and just started another build Price £100 inc postage and PayPal post to UK only, no overseas shipping, any questions please PM me
  9. Hello. This is a post about the PS-47 that uses a cc-01 pajero rally sport as a model. If you are interested in how this combination came to be, see bottom. - I was trying to find pictures of how the PS-47 iridescent pink/gold looked on a rc-car on the internets and was a little disappointed at the number of results. I also tried to find recommendations on how to use it, if there were any, about layers and different backings etc, and was yet again disappointed. I had never painted a lexan body with spray paints before. So, here's my contribution: 1. Pajero Rally Sport CC-01 body painted with Tamiya PS-47 Spray paint only. Indoors. The whole can was used. I applied very thin layers multiple times, didn't actually count, but i went out to my man-cave at least 8 times. 2-4. Backing with Tamiya PS-5 Black. Indoors. The whole can was used with thick layers. Almost totally opaque. (last picture depicts my decal-testing) 5-6. Outdoors, but on a cloudy day (decals on). *(hmmm maxed pic limit, will try to add in "reply") ------------- About the combination; In my youth i had a buggy and a touring car that i sold for rock and roll. Now i have two kids, so naturally i wanted to play with rc-cars again using my kids as an excuse . I chose the chassis and they chose the rally car ( i thought they would choose the unimog, but i suspect the kids tv-shows had influence). I brought my eldest, my daughter, to the hobbyshop to pick a colour. -Pink. light pink. -Maybe a darker one? -Ok, this one (bright pink). -Purple? Blue? Silver? Mustard Yellow? Red? Yes, red is nice! -No, pink (now pointing at a neon pink that hurt my retina. She was trying to make a compromise with me though, hehe). -Hmmm. -Pink, or GOOOLD! -Ok, hmmm. Gold might be, uhm, its a rally car.. racing? -Pink then. I had then since long realized my mistake in bringing my daughter to the shop and not deciding the colour beforehand, but i was decided that the car should not be painted bright pink. We had however stood by the paints some time arguing and i wanted her to have some say in the matter. I then remembered the iridescent colours and my experimenting and compromising nature kicked in, so I proposed the PS-47. -No. -But this is pink AND gold? -No. -It is sparkling and shiny... the pink is dull.... She then grabbed the PS-47 and we left the shop with smiles on our faces and excitement in out hearts. At home i got cold feet and wanted to look at pictures before embarking on this colourful journey... return to top... -------------

  11. Couple of years ago I got a cc01 with a Range Rover Classic shell, had a few runs and used the chassis for my now G4 discovery. Since then the shell has gathered dust and almost threw it away in a pre Christmas clear out, put in the loft until now. Removed from hibernation this morning and couldn't help thinking....I need another project! so..good lady out for the day and a bit of free time, shell before I begin Bit bruised and a colour I wasn't pleased with. Browsed range rover classic pics and paint shopping tomorrow......
  12. Hello all built quite a few CC01s over the last couple of years and sold a couple that I regret selling. My Disco was build number 2 but been my favourite so far and wanted to do another for over a year, this week I managed to get hold of another new bright shell so another build begins Shell arrived in great nick, only flaw is the fake mud splatter. took all the bits off the shell to prep for painting, few ways to remove the mud but couldn't get hold of the best product so good old fashioned wet and dry to smooth the body down, primered and ready for painting at the weekend this is look I'm aiming for wont post build pics as won't be re inventing the wheel but any questions along the way, I'd look forward to them
  13. I've built a simple rear mount for a spare tire for my Pajero, but since Tamiya only supplies 4 wheels and tires with their kits (how dare they!) I am now one short. Does anyone here have a Pajero MTW tire + wheel left over from an upgrade or something, and is willing to share? Many thanks. (This is one of the front wheels posing for the shot. Note the gangsta-lean of the car.)
  14. Just recently I was considering selling my Cc01 Bowler but have since decided to keep it and spending some money on it. I originally bought it off a mate who wasn't using it. At the time of purchase it was fitted with a Kamtec Bowler shell, GPM steering and rear link kit, knockoff RC4WD tires and powered by a Turnigy 1250kv outrunner controlled by a Yeah racing 35amp esc. Also the rear diff was locked and the front brick cut off. Driving it in that state was fun. The outrunner was as smooth as butter off the line with a light throttle finger. But mash the throttle and it launched hard as well. Since then I've bought Yeah Racing cvds and steering knuckles and a Vaterra 68 Ford F100 shell. This week I'll order some new tires from Hobby King and hopefully get the body mounts sorted. Before: As it sits now: More to come.
  15. As I promised, here is a small overview of my cars so far. My first ever RC car I bought when I was 12. It was an M02 Alpine A110, and it was well used and abused throughout the years. I raced it in the Eurocup, where it soon found itself hopelessly outclassed against the (then-new) M03s. I parked it in the attic and forgot all about it. However, four years ago, my then-office decided to have a team-building exercise; build and race TT01s against the other departments. Because I was the only one with any clue how to assemble them, I was named chief mechanic and driver. After the big event I took the thing home, and promptly bought a second one. ... I guess you can kinda see how this goes from here... Four years later, and I have fully restored the M02, making it a light-duty runner with the only modern addition of a 2.4Ghz receiver and an ESC. The rest is pure '90s goodness, including an original body set. The TT01 received a Lancia Delta Integrale body set, and a rally interior soon after. The TT01 is still with me, I race it in the Dutch Tamiya Cup wearing a Toyota GT86 body set (the beautiful Lancia is just too fragile for the track).. For the local indoor carpet track I have two cars. I started out running the TT, but soon upgraded to a TRF419, currently in Stock 17.5t trim to comply with local regulations. It's an absolute beast, precise as a scalpel and quick like a fox. The other car I bought to compete with my wife. She runs a Tamiya F1 mutt (F104 with an X1 rear pod and setup, and a TRF102 frontend on foam, and I found the 419 to be outgunned. So I went and got a TRF102. The TRF F1 is still fairly new to me, and I'm still working on setting it up. I run it on rubber instead of foam, which puts me at a huge handling disadvantage compared to her foam-shod car. The 102 has the upper hand in power though, she runs a silver can, and I run a 21.5t brushless in blinky. We also have two DT03 buggies, just to mess around with on the beach, and I'm currently painting up a CC01 Mitsubishi Pajero MTW.

  17. OK, so having ranted and raved about the 2014 Winter Build-Off for so long, I decided it was time to stop being lazy and get started with my build thread! Officially I started building on 1st Dec but I've been too lazy to figure out how to get the photos off my phone and onto the net. The History 2012, Tamiyaclub meet, a big RC-related jumble and one of the best days out I've had in ages, and I came home with an impulse-bought Parma '57 Chevy on a Kyosho RWD chassis. I kept it for a couple of months before realising I had too many projects, and sold it on - then immediately regretted it. While some Parma shells can be a bit jelly-mould in appearance and have only a passing resemblance to the model on the label, the '57 Chevy is actually quite a good replica. It comes in 3 parts - central cabin, separate rear bumper, and separate front section, meaning it's possible to make a removable flip front, if that's your style. A few months back I popped into my LHS and spotted an NIP '57 shell lying in a corner. Unable to get it out of my head, I went back in two days later and bought it. Then stuck it up on the top shelf in the garage and forgot about it... Many, many years ago I also bought a much abused and modified CC01 Pajero off another TCer. I didn't like the hacked up Paj shell, so I discarded it to the spares box, lengthened the CC01 and fitted a tatty Bruiser shell, and crawled it until the gears exploded. For the past year it's sat on the Project shelf waiting to be rebuilt. The Concept Knowing I had a '57 shell and a good scale chassis with IFS front and solid rear axle, I decided to hunt around to see what film cars I could be inspired by. A search on IMCDB pulled up Running On Empty, a 1982 film about an Australian street racer and his battle to be the fastest on the streets. It features a bunch of cool cars, not least - a modified '57 Chevy! The film itself is pretty poor, with bad acting, bad dialog and absurd plot, all of which I could forgive if there was some good vehicular action - but this is no Mad Max. Stunts are cut in and out quickly, but not quick enough to hide the glaringly obvious "stooge car explosion" effect. Races are over in less than the 12 seconds they are supposed to last. The cars are cool but there's not enough focus on them to really enjoy that either. Films have come a long way since 1982! So - enough waffle - here's some links to pics of the '57 Chevy (from web search and IMCDB): From the film http://www.imcdb.org/i081423.jpg http://pics.imcdb.org/0is165/1957chevroletxxxxb8pz.9602.jpg http://yuq.me/users/11/808/3Nta1n8Jfu.png non-film pic, probably a replica http://www.rigsofrods.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=413112&d=1373494226 replica: http://s23.photobucket.com/user/solidc10/media/0c0079f6.jpg.html
  18. I bought these only a few weeks ago however they are too big for the bodyshell I was going to use them on. Like new Dingo 'Fender Flares' complete with fixings. They bolt-through the bodyshell so should hold up pretty good off road. Will only sell on for what I paid for them, which was £17 posted (I think, the old PM has been deleted!) (please note that parts have been removed from plastic parts trees to make postage easier) Second up I have a CC01 Radshape RC front bumper, brand new, it's been installed but has no marks. Decided it's not really for me, cost £11.99 + post originally, so I'll take £8 posted for this one. Next up is a Tamiya 53387 TA03R-S/F-S chassis conversion with FRP chassis plates. This includes all the instructions, screws / fixings and K / J parts required to convert a TA03F or R to shorter wheelbase, or an existing short wheelbase to FRP double-deck setup. This can also be used in conjunction with my other item to create a TA03R carbon fibre double-deck chassis if desired. New In Package, £40 + Post ONO Next is the aforementioned TA03R carbon fibre chassis plates set OP.363 part 53363. Also NIP/unopened, yours for £50 + post. As said, it could be combined with the above chassis conversion which contains all the necessary parts (K & J parts) and screws to create your very own TRF TA03R if you so wished... Finally I have these pretty rare parts, spare 'H' parts tree from the limited edition 30th Anniversary Porsche 934 kit, also brand new and only removed from its' packaging for this photograph. Part number is 9004184. I can do this for £13 Posted ONO
