  1. This started life as a DT03 Neo Fighter, built for racing and most of you will have seen my review of the car on the RC Racer web site. When the DT03T Aqroshot came out I had to have one as like many others have been waiting for a proper Tamiya racing truck. It got tested at the years DT02 challenge .............. it has all the hop ups available and runs a 10.5 brushless with a Hobbyking 120amp X-car esc ​ ​ ​ ​
  2. Anyone else looked at the similarity in shape of the DT-01 chassis to the DT-03, wondered why they never released a narrower body on the DT-01 and then looked at a spare DT-03 body and went "hmmm..."? If not, here's an idea for the DT-01 lovers on TC. The car belongs to my friend and its original body keeps breaking around the thin rear frame so I had a go at modifying the newly spare DT-03 body I had. It's a perfect fit (like a glove) right up to the rear shock towers where it needs to be cut away to accomodate them. I also removed the overhang at the back as it fouled on the axles as the suspension compressed. I'm highly tempted to try this again should my madbull (GH2) body get too trashed.

  4. Hi, I am looking to upgrade the servo saver on my DT03 - Neo Fighter Buggy. I have found two Tamiya ones - 51000 in black and 50473 in white. Please can some advise on which is correct and best? Also I think I have read that Kimborough make good servo savers but I am totally unsure which one would fit - they seem to make loads. If anyone could advise on that, thanks!
  5. Hi, I am going to build a new dt-03 and use a 13.5t brushless motor. I would like to tune this buggy to the max! I read a few great threads on it but am a little confused by pinion gears. Ideally I would like to use a Robinson Racing pinion gear, as I have used them before on my Sand Scorcher and they worked really well. But how do I know how many teeth to choose? I am thinking about a 17t one for my motor but only because it was something I picked up in a random thread. I would like to know how you actually choose? I will be using the car for amateur racing with my kids and bashing around in fields. Once I know how many teeth what are the correct specs of the gears in the DT03? After reading these two threads I am really confused: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=74105 http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=73604 Thanks!!!
  6. here is my review on my TRF DT03 on The RC Racer web site http://www.thercracer.com/2014/05/tamiya-dt03-trf-race-tips-and-review.html a few of you have seen my car run and heard about my trials and tribulations with car. Have a read and I hope it helps with your DT03.
  7. I wasn't keen on this car when I first saw it. After a brain storming moment I realised what I could do to this car with the DT03 specific Hop Ups and Hop Ups I had kicking around doing nothing so ........ Here is my build, the Super Gripper'd DT03 As expected, the Tamiya instructions are noddy proof. I built the Hop Ups in to the build from the start. The alloy servo mount is very nice. 54565 >> and a Kimbro servo saver I forgot to take a picture of the bare chassis halves sorry. On the front end I used The DT03 Carbon Fibre shock tower 54562, really nice Tamiya weave in the Fibre. I had a spare set of TRF Aeration dampers so they went on with 54205 DB01 alloy damper bushings at the top and 54503 alloy suspension balls at the bottom. I also used 3Racing alloy C hubs and gray TRF 54247 reinforced adjusters. And 54396 Front Damper Lower attachment pins and 54395 Low friction shafts. I used TRF201 hex screws and not the kit screws. at the rear I used the DT03 alloy suspension bridge parts 54566. Now here I cheated a lot I used the complete rear gearbox from my DT02 Desert Gator It has in the Tamiya ball diff 53863, 3Racing Universal shafts and 5 Stars rear hubs and 5 stars alloy hexes. Anti roll bar is DT02 It also has a Losi 10.5 motor powered by a Turnigy Trackstar 100amp esc. So I then just bolted the whole thing on with the DT03 Carbon Fibre rear shock tower 54563 and TRF Aeration dampers. Again using 54503 and 54205. Such an easy build, I do not like the look of the kit rear wing so I used a TRF201 wing 54211. The car also has the DT03 alloy battery bar 54564 DF03 rear wheels and I have used Schumacher yellow mini spike tyre with Schumacher Tubby inserts. Just waiting for my paint to come from modelsport for the body shell.
