  1. I've wanted a rally car for some time now. Having looked at various options I settled on the TT02. This will be a rally car, an on road car, and a drift car also. I spent some time reading up on the TT02 and it seemed to tick all the boxes. I opted for the Type S which has some tasty upgrades over the standard TT02. So here we go. I started with the wheels. I'm still waiting on the wheels to put the kit on road tires on to. I'm sure you've all seen the TT02 chassis a million times before, but I haven't, and i like it. This is my first 4wd car since my 1990 Pro-Cat! I knocked this little piece up. Any guess as to what it's for? A little guard to keep stones out of the steering. More coming soon, thanks for looking.
  2. After a year long hiatus, I’m back! The weather has turned, and with warm weather, the RC bug bites. I have been really enjoying my first rally car, a TT02 Datsun 240z. The build thread is on here somewhere. Some pics. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// I am now going to try and build a Porsche 911 rally on a TT02 chassis. I love the versatility of the rally chassis, and my Datsun is a blast to drive. Can’t wait to get started.
  3. A New Build! It has been a long time coming, but it is now time for a build thread as I tackle the: I have waited a long time for this model, cutting back in other areas of my finances to keep the pre-order I applied for a long time ago. Naturally, then, I am beyond excited to have an example in my hands. Such is my excitement that I can write an incredibly boring piece about my ruminations of both the Lancia 037 and Tamiya's equivalents On the Lancia 037, 58040, 58278, and 58654 The Lancia 037 is a vehicle that holds a special place in my heart. On the face of it, the 037 is a mid-engine rally machine, a sportscar that can tackle rough roads. It does so with a unique style and flair, with its Italian styling and heritage rooted in the country that produces some of the most soul-stirring automobiles ever made. Perhaps Tamiya did not think of this when they first produced a version of the 037, marketed as the Lancia Rally. As we know, this was an odd contraption, capturing the body’s lines perfectly while parking it on top of quite an awkward-looking chassis. Handling depended on who you ask and what motor you left in there, but the superb shell was difficult to preserve under less-than-careful driving. Today, we remember Lancia’s 037 as the last rear-wheel drive car to win the World Rally Championship for Makes, defeating the nascent Audi Quattro and its four-wheel drive, with supercharging, to paraphrase 037 pilot Markku Alen. We remember it as a beautiful little racer stuck somewhere between the radical Stratos and the terrifying Delta S4, not as accomplished as its angular predecessor and not as memorably intimidating as its successor. It never even had a name outside of its project number. We remember Tamiya’s Lancia Rally quite differently, it seems, and its legacy is a little more divisive. Many bemoan its mediocre handling, fragile shell, and unusual proportions, while others praise its wonderfully detailed body, genuine off-road capability, and unusual proportions. In 2001, Tamiya addressed the non-scale appearance of the original Lancia Rally in a re-release. Now known as the Lancia 037 Rally as on the box, this offering kept the superb shell, added some more detail parts, and placed it on a much more proportionally-correct touring car chassis. While this version lost much of the off-road ability of the original, especially as the special TA-03R-S chassis was a belt-driven one, it definitely looked more serious – even if an oversized bumper was issued with the re-release, like the original’s massive bush guard… 17 years later, and Tamiya has re-released the re-release. The proportionally-correct Lancia 037 Rally has made a reappearance, this time on a shaft-driven TA-02S chassis. The excellent shell and detail parts return, and so does a large snow plow bumper! The last-named still works well to avoid crash damage like that which the great Henri Toivonen encountered with his Lancia… Grastens and Tamiya's Lancias It was through the original-style Lancia Rally that the 037 made its way into my collection. I fell in love with it for its genuine off-road capability – like the Subaru Brat and Tamiya Frog that shared its chassis design – and its lovely detailed body shell. With the swoopy Martini stripes and the big rally spotlights sitting atop an aggressively jacked-up chassis, it looked like it was from outer space. The re-release of the Frog and Subaru Brat also meant that parts were readily available, as were upgrades that improved the original’s driving characteristics. A fast car that can run on rough roads, with easy maintenance and good parts support… It was the rally car I had dreamed of! This was in 2014, which was well after the first re-release 037 was discontinued - to say nothing of the original! At the time, I figured I would never be able to acquire a re-release, and for some time did not want to. The original had that useful ground clearance and actual rear-wheel drive, two traits that endeared it to me over the four-wheel drive touring car-based iteration. Yet by 2017, my Lancia was no longer in running condition, and my enthusiasm for the hobby as a whole had diminished. I had to sell off much of my equipment to fund life, among them my Lancia's bodywork. By reigniting my passion for radio-controlled cars, the latest 037 saved my hobby career. Much of my enthusiasm came from seeing the venerable Lancia being given the re-release treatment, from the new box to the updated photos. Some of it came from the fact that the new chassis for the car was a sealed shaft-driven type, which I figured would be much better for the off-road running I wanted to tackle with such a car. Even limited experience with a belt-driven TA-04 was enough for me to harbour doubts about a belt-driven machine in those conditions. Most importantly, it was a car I had come to adore, emerging at a price well below my expectations for such a fantastic little machine. It simply got me excited again. I placed my pre-order, held course, and finally saw it delivered to my country, where it was dispatched quickly. First Impressions Many people have reservations about the smaller boxes and the unattractive packaging of the re-releases compared to the blister packs of the original models, but I for one love the subsequent savings on shipping. The box was small and sleek: The offsets look off in this box schematic, but consistent with the box art. Many 037s did have their wheels well tucked into the arches. What intrigues me more is the listed wheelbase of 236 mm; I had committed the figure of 237 mm long enough for me to find this particular detail odd, however inconsequential: Was this a detail on the first re-release's box? FCA was not around back then, but Lancia and Martini sure were: The packing is efficient and compact. I had difficulty replicating it following my examination of the contents: And here is the first layer of parts from the box: The second layer I extracted had many of the plastic chassis parts and some body detail pieces: Instructions, decals, and metal hardware can be found near or at the bottom: The decal sheet looks identical to the earlier re-release's, but I had never seen that before and was intrigued by the dashboard decals for the cockpit set at first: The story of me selling my original Lancia Rally shell has an important catch: I sold the one I finished, but had a spare body set. Initially keeping it for spares - I anticipated the worst for what was my most frequent runner - I dug it out to reaffirm everything I knew about the differences between the original and re-release bodies: I assume it is normal for the original shell to have a slightly more yellow plastic The enthusiasm generated by this new Lancia has inspired me to finish my original one; such is the power of this special model. Planning the Build I will likely be building this car up out of sequence, as I have an international order of ball bearings on the way and not enough spares to outfit the entire car. I will be sure to outline steps I follow for specific parts and their places in the manual. The same delay applies to light sets; however I also anticipate that acquiring paint and having good painting conditions will be difficult. Hence, the bodywork may only occur much later. I will be provisioning supplies to finish two bodies while I sort out my original Lancia Rally. It might receive some coverage in this build, but the focus will be on the re-release. Accordingly, I intend to finish the original in box-art Martini Racing livery. This leaves the re-release open to some customization. As for that customization: lots of lovely paint schemes exist for this car, but without custom printing I will either be repeating the box-art Martini livery, piecing together decals for a 1986 Bastos-Texaco racer, finishing up Markku Alen's 1985 Portugal test car, or finally getting Adobe Illustrator and commissioning a printer for a nice set of Jolly Club/Totip decals, courtesy of TamiyaClub's own firefoxussr If I have the time and resources, I have several other liveries from the 1983 season in mind, which I may detail later if they come up as an option. I selected 1983 as I do not feel like parting with the rear bumper (Evo.2 Lancia 037s appeared from 1984 onward, which omitted the rear bumper for practicality). Resources permitting, I also hope to construct an engine bay and roll cage for the model, the first real scratch-building project I will undertake! I hope I can exercise enough restraint to get those finished before abandoning it all to thrash the finished car... The Last Word - For Now If you have read this far: congratulations, and thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts If not: I can hardly blame you. All you need to know is that I am really excited for this model! In any case, I look forward to commencing the build!
  4. Just spent the weekend building this kit acquired a while ago. Stickers took a lot of time. Wheels / tires are Tamiya 2.2" and Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs. Front end rear end completed kit Getting for painting Body in progress Stickers in progress Nearly done.
  5. As many of you have guessed, I'm a lover of all things Lancia. I've owned two Lancias. In high school I had a Lancia Beta Coupe *cue rust jokes*. And during college I bought and drove a Lancia Scorpion aka Montecarlo. The Coupe was fun, and I still tell the story about its rust nearly causing an accident. The Montecarlo was my true love, still to date my favorite car owned. I drove it for nearly a decade, eventually selling it as I needed air conditioning and it needed a proper repainting. I've been in love with all things Montecarlo since I saw the Lancia Rally stradale in the Bayless Fiat-Lancia parts catalog. From that I'd read many articles about the car. So as a Lancia fan, it's odd to say but the Stratos always comes second in my mind in spite of its accomplishments. I've owned more than a few 1/43 scale 037s, a few 1/24 scale Hasegawa, a pair of 1/24 Polisil models, and a 1/18th Kyosho. But the Tamiya 037 is the most interesting. Plus you can actually use it. My family was huge into Fiats and Lancia. Still is to a degree. Clockwise from bottom left: My 1976 Lancia Scorpion, Fiat 124 Coupe, my father's 77 Scorpion, 81 Beta Zagato (Spider), '80 Fiat 124 Spider ITB racecar, and another 124 Spider project car. So for me getting into RC in early 2013, it was quite timely that Tamiya should re-release the body in 2014. Unfortunately there is a bit of hunting required to piece together a working car. I did buy a TA03R, bought the new production belt from Germany and a R-S tub, built it... crashed it (minus bodyshell), rebuilt it. Then it annoyed me that the axles were always a little too wide in front. And the belt kept falling off on the back. The decision was made that I would sell the TA03R-S with the 911 GT1 shell I had that was useless because it was already cut... making duplication a daunting task. Then came the TA05. Originally you guessed it, it was for the Lancia 037 shell. Using the Porsche 911 GT2 body re-release instructions, I shortened the chassis. Again... front track way too wide even with extra thin hexes. If you've read this far, I think you know why I've decided on an M04 as the basis for this project. Additionally the supplied 037 wheels are simply too large in diameter for the body. This isn't surprising. Bearing in mind the body was originally designed for the ORV then redesigned to fit the TA03R-S. The reality is I'm grateful Tamiya made the re-releases. I now own enough bodies bought at a reasonable enough price, that I don't have to treat all of them as shelf queens. More to follow :-D The more you know factoid: Lancia Rally was the car's official designation. The 037 portion is an Abarth project number. And yes, the Group B Lancia Delta S4 is the Abarth 038.
  6. Hello, glad to be a part of the community. I’ve almost finished my first Tamiya project in years and I’m having a problem with drive issues. I bought a super cheap but very clean used TB-03D to do a rally conversion (rally block tires and wheels, EVO III WRC body). I’m running a stock gearing of 64t Spur and 23t .06M pinion. I believe the previous owner installed a one way spool in the front because the car basically has FWD only and zero reverse. I get no wheel spin in the rear. I assume I have to tighten something in the diff or the drive shaft/spur, but no idea as this is my first Tamiya build in over 10 years. Any help/tips? Link to a short YouTube video of the problem:
  7. Hi, I'm new here. This is the project I'm working on, it's a Blitzer Beetle body mounted on a rally set up TT-02r chassis. The front body mount is a modified Blitzer Beetle mount, I cut out the centre section so I could bolt it to the uprights. I have the chassis set to increased ride height & short wheelbase plus I've shortened the front track by replacing the front ~9mm hexes with 4mm hexes and fairly obviously I've fitted rally wheels/tyres. It has a Tamiya 10.5t brushless motor & a Team Powers XPS sport programmable ESC. There's still loads to be done - Replace shocks, not that I find much wrong with the TT-02r oil filled shocks but I want alloy shocks. Replace battery with LiPo. Tidy up body mounts & bolts etc. Now, to paint or not to paint? I really don't know whether to leave it 'ratty' or paint the shell. Perhaps white? With rally livery? Anyway, I've rambled on long enough. Here's a photo of it next to my Kyosho (I was fitting new tyres to) for scale. I think it looks pretty good, any ideas, thoughts, opinions would be most welcome.
  8. Hi there!! Nice to meet you, we are Tamiya Rally Lovers!! We use to run with Tamiya TT01/TT02/Xv01 and Minis 03/05/07!! Last sunday we go to a Rally Rc organized in Madrid Rally Portugal.

  9. Okay i am looking to purchase the rally cockpit for the celica 58096 (painted). I need the drivers to be with red uniforms, since this is for the celica repsol. I can buy used or new, or anyone that is willing to paint one for low cost, can pm me. Photos of what i am after :
  10. Hello. Been years since i had a tamiya ta02 castrol celica, and today i started building my new in box tamiya ta01 celica 58096. I have a few questions. 1) is there a difference if you put the large plastic bearings 1150 in any of their sides? 2) plastic bearings 1150 that i installed in the uprights seem to fall easily, and not tight as in other cars like the hornet. Is that normal? 3) everything followed from the manual, when i turn the wheels by hand they stop when i let them go, they dont continue spinning like in my hornet. Is that the 4wd difference here? thats all. Thanks
  11. I know this has been beaten to death, but wanted to start a build thread for a Datsun 240z rally build on a TT02 chassis. I would have rather just bought a DF03ra chassis with the Datsun body when they were available a few months ago, but I took too long to pull the trigger. I enjoy building my cars as scale as possible, and have learned a lot from scouring threads on this great forum. Here are two threads I will be using as a reference, many thanks to the authors. To start with I purchased this kit from Tower hobbies for $104 with free shipping. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXFVHK&P=SM After I bought the kit and started buying all the hop up parts I realized it would have been cheaper to buy this kit. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXGCWD&P=SM This kit comes with a sport tuned motor, rubber shielded bearings, cva oil dampers, adjustable steering toe in, and beefier shock towers. Hopefully someone can learn from my mistake...lol. Here is the kit as it arrived the other day.
  12. Hi Folks, Been on a MF-01X binge over the last few months. I have seven built and one still to go. Two will be runners while the rest shelf queens. Shelf queens mostly spot Tamiya Esc + 17.5T sensored Brushless motor. One of the Runners has up rated 80A Hobbyking esc & 13.5T motor. The other is a work in progress at the moment.

Paul Brand Spanking New In Box Lancia 037 Rally #58278 - $300. Not the re-reedition (meaning this is the original reedition from the 00's based on the TA03RS). As unopened as you will ever find
  14. With the new Lancia 037 coming out, I am eager to get my hands on one. Given the relative ubiquity of Martini Racing 037s, I was hoping to secure an alternative decal sheet to depict a different car, i.e. one of the Lancia junior team's Totip racers, or a Würth-sponsored car, or some sort of regional/privateer entry. However, outside of a rare set of 1:10 scale decals that have been untraceable afterwards, I have never seen an alternative decal sheet that would fit an 037 in this scale. Is there something I have missed, then? I see that The Rally Legends had several 037 body sets depicting different liveries from the 1983 season, but cannot find the individual body sets for sale, let alone decal sheets. I cannot justify taking on an extra shell just for the decals yet, but for the right livery, I could. I say this, seeing an alternative Martini set with a body online, though I would not even be using the entire sheet in that instance; hence, my reluctance. Otherwise, I will either be designing my own from an existing scale model decal sheet, or scavenging decals from other 1:10 sheets to replicate an alternative livery. These seem the more likely options, though I wanted to check here in the hopes that somebody knows something I do not. Hopefully, this topic can also help somebody with a similar intention for their re-re-release Lancia. Thanks in advance!
  15. Building a TT02 White Edition for rally racing. I've been told that it will help to build the diffs with some AW grease. At least in the front. Does anyone use oil as well or will it leak out. Maybe 500,000wt? Thanks!
  16. Just getting back into the scene after years away. In the past I ran nitro, now I'm going electric. Finally figuring out this lipo and brushless stuff, but I'm at decision point. Awaiting my new TT02 White edition kit in the mail, and I need to order a motor/esc combo but I have no idea where to even begin with regards to what I need. Here's what I know: 1) It has to be compatible with the 2s lipos I already have. (One 4000mah and one 6500mah) 2)I need both motor and esc so a combo makes sense. 3) Want to keep price around $100 or less. This article has a ton of options but I don't know what the differences are. https://www.onkidstoys.com/top-21-best-esc-motor-combos/ I'm going to be racing at a local track doing rally. The guys who go there suggested this combo: https://www.hobbytown.com/xerun-justock-zero-spec-sensored-brushless-esc-motor-combo-13.5t-by-hobbywing-hwa38020401/p453305 This is one I keep seeing advertised: Http://www.horizonhobby.com/KXSS0500?utm_medium=display&utm_source=criteo&utm_campaign=productremarketing&utm_content=KXSS0500&CA_6C15C=320011980000459400 Happy to take suggestions. Don't need the world's fastest motor but I'd like to be competitive. Thanks!
  17. I'm letting go of this rare kit $300, tam 92200, it even has drivers cockpit detail parts, very cool and unique. 94 Castrol Celica WRC PM me for shipping cost, USPS first class or priority whichever is cheaper for the buyer. Shipping weight is going to be close to 8lbs including box and packing material. Unboxing video credits to rcmart https://youtu.be/2mhAMxfAJSA For more info on this kit, see the following official link:https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio-control-kits-30/off-road-buggies-36450/rc-castrol-celica-94-92200 Thanks for looking, Dave Paypal or fund transfer via bank (Wire transfers - domestic)
  18. Hi all, I don't suppose anyone has a pair of the side pods/air intake things that fit the Lancia 037 body? If no one has any for sale, has anyone got one (either side) that I can borrow? I'll just need it to measure and draw up in CAD. Thanks, J. I need those things that fit in that triangular space...
  19. There are so many TT-02 builds on here (one of them is my own!) that I hesitated doing yet another TT-02 build thread. However, this one is going to be built to rally spec with a number of hop-ups, some of which I think are unique. So I hope you all find this worthwhile. I am still waiting for a fair number of bits to arrive from distant lands such as Michigan, the U.K., Hong Kong and Japan. It will be at least a couple of weeks before I can start this build thread in earnest. I will begin though with an unboxing video.
  20. I started building my Subaru XV TT02. I got it to the point of being able to test drive it, and thought I would start a thread before it progressed any further. Plans are to do a rally build for bashing on dirt trails. Hoppups are: Tamiya TT02 CVA dampers Tamiya High Speed Spur gear Fast Eddies sealed bearings YR aluminum driveshaft. YR steering kit YR diff locker in the rear Also included, are GPM aluminum battery posts. Unnecessary, but I originally robbed the Tamiya battery posts from this kit for my Neo Scorcher Truggy. I found these on eBay cheaper than another parts tree, and went for these. To be honest, I don't like them and wish I would have gotten the whole parts tree just for the Tamiya parts. The reason being is that it's much easier/faster to pull a pin out to change the battery, than it is to unscrew two little knobs. The wheels came from eBay. I don't know the brand, and chose them just for the chunky tires. I will be putting the tires on the Subaru kit rims.
  21. Hard times are happening around here, so regretfully I am listing the following models for sale: - Tamiya Striker (58061) - Tamiya Lancia Rally (58040) [sorted] - Tamiya Buggy Champ 2009 (58441) - Tamiya Avante Black Special (84270) [sold] All four are in complete, used, working condition. The Striker is near-box-art (except for front cockpit screen and driver torso). It has been fitted with alloy rear wheel hubs, a modified Team CRP front chassis brace, and ball bearings all around (sealed types at the front wheels). The car shows signs of wear and use, with some tattered decals - it was definitely a runner, and will be cleaned before shipping. Many of the spares from my other TamiyaClub sale listing will be included in the sale of this car. Looking for $225 CAD, shipped worldwide. [Lancia Rally sorted] The Buggy Champ is finished in dark-green with box-art decals. It is fitted with the hop-up ball differential, an aluminium chassis, a homemade switch cover, and a set of Tamtech GB-01 aeration dampers all around. Of the four, this car is in the most-used state, and could benefit from a restoration. Looking for $200 CAD, shipped worldwide. [Avante Black Special sold] These cars are being sold with their electronics; upon request they can be removed at a discount. I am listening to offers and will negotiate via PM. These cars are located in Canada. I have PayPal; payment a gift preferred. Thank you for reading. Edit: Note that I will be absent from May 11th - 28th, so communications will be sparse during that time, and shipments delayed until the 29th.
  22. What you see here is a brand-new set of Lancia Rally wheels, which fit the original ORV-based model (58040). They are still attached to their sprues and have never been opened. These wheels will fit either the classic Michelin TRX-style rally tires that were stock to the Lancia Rally, or the Advan HF-style tires that were recently reintroduced by the Honda City Turbo. I am looking for 160 GBP (approximately $280 CAD at time of writing), which will include shipping, for these wheels, which will ship from Canada. I am open to offers and trades, so feel free to enquire. Upon request, I can pair these with a brand-new set of Advan HF-style tires from the Honda City Turbo's re-release, but note that their outer tire diameter is slightly smaller than the stock Lancia Rally tires'. Pictures ensue: And of course, if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them via PM. Thanks for reading!
  23. I am selling two sets of Tamiya rally block tires along with a set of generic 26mm wheels and shaped inserts. The tires came from a XV-01 kit and were never used. I have no clue what brand the wheels and inserts are since the came as part of a package deal, but they were also never used. I am asking for 20€ for all items. It is also possible to buy single items. The prices are as following: 1 pair of tires = 8€ 1 pair of wheels = 4€ 1 pair of inserts = free with the purchase of any other item Shipping is free within EU.
  24. Since everyone here knows the 037 thanks to Tamiya's beautiful kits, figured I'd post this. I'm a Lancia WRC fan first, the RC Lancias drew me to Tamiya. Having owned a Scorpion for many years, this is the car most Monetcarlo/Scorpion owners want!
