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.
I'm going 13.5T blinky racing with the shiny thing and need some advise on what size spurs and pinions would be worth having at my disposal. It's a small black carpet track and you can run with any rubber tyres, they also race 17.5t in the same heats and apparently there is little difference in lap times! I have a metal chassis and different top deck that came with the 419x which is supposedly better for high grip surfaces, is it worth swapping them over? Any general blinky racing hint's or 419 advice would also be much appreciated. Thanks mmmmmm shiny thing
Raman36 posted a topic in Trade ArchiveSelling a super clean Tamiya TRF419, raced only on carpet. Amazing car with amazing cornering speeds, best Tamiya TRF I have ever owned. I had just finished installing the Samix carbon chassis to give it a shot and then I came across a 419X. So I have never actually tested the car with the Samix chassis. It is meant to be softer and offer more flex. I am also including an original chassis NIP, along with manual, spare arms and spare c hubs as well as some NIP suspension blocks.
