  1. This is a light restoration thread of a vintage TA02 chassis into a rally / rallycross runner. Probably a fairly short build as I have most of what I need and I know what direction I'm heading. The History This chassis came to me many, many moons ago from a local ex-TC member. I think his name may have been GazWilts, or something like that. He posted a For Sale ad here for a hardbody Robbe Jeep sitting on a TA02 chassis. As he was fairly local, I made the journey to his place by car, talked nonsense for a couple of hours and eventually gave him some cash. The Jeep only ever got one run in stock form, at a TC bash at a sandy site in South Wales. Even with locked diffs the stock Hummer tyres couldn't cope with the soft sand and, although it looked brilliant, the Jeep spent most of its runtime stuck chassis-deep in the gold stuff. After trying various options the Jeep body ended up going over a Losi MRC chassis (an old project that was shelved years ago and might be pulled out again before lockdown ends), and the TA02 chassis went into a box of bits, never to see the light of day again. Until Sunday. The Trigger Lockdown has meant I'm running exclusively in my own garden. I've made a rough track that incorporates a short lawn section and some rustic patio slabs. It's a little too tight for modern 1:10 buggies, but perfect for trophy trucks and rallycross. Although I already have a TB01 (in need of a little care and a new body), and have just recently purchased a DF03Ra, I felt the need to fit up something different for rally duties. I had a Celica GT4 ST165 bodyset NIP that I bought a few years ago when I had planned to do some local rally events. So when I finished my XV01T S10 build on Sunday morning and I had the rest of the day to myself, I figured I might as well grab down this old chassis and dust-covered bodyset and see if I could mate the two together. The Plan Keep It Simple, Stupid. A partial stripdown and once-over, replace anything broken, rebuild with a semi-hot brushed motor and some rally block tyres. Fit an old set of CVAs adjusted for long travel, and go rallying. The Build It started with the chassis. As you can see, it's exactly what it claims to be. A vintage TA02. Front arms were missing but I later found them (or something very much like them) while digging through a zippy bag marked "CC01 Misc". Shocks were missing but I had a set rattling around the bottom of a spares bag in the box that my vintage touring race cars were sat in (a TL01LA and a modded TB01). First thing I noticed was that the rear diff was locked. The previous owner (in building a scaler) had done the old trick of putting the stock ball diff up front and locking the gear diff with putty for a high traction rear end. I hammered apart the diff housing to find this. It looks (and smells) a bit like paint but I imagine it's some kind of putty, maybe a body filler. It flaked off the plastic housing well enough but wasn't easy to get off the metal parts. Fortunately I had a couple of sets of diff internals sitting in 99% IPA for a few weeks now, one set were almost clean, so I dropped the puttied diff into the juice and pulled out the older ones. An hour with a craft knife, small flat bladed screwdriver and a compressed air nozzle and they were clean enough to use.
  2. Hello. Okay as many of you are aware or have seen, i had my new in box celica 58096 for sale. I had been offered a nice amount of money for it, from a local guy, but i decided that money will not do much difference, and that the time i will spend to build and run this car and the fun will worth more to me. So after 20+ years, sitting on shelves, i decided to keep it and build it myself. Next upgrades, will be the original tamiya ceramic bearings, the dynatech O2H motor and the rally cockpit for the interior. The car will stay original so i will only use tamiya and other parts and hop ups that were officially released for this car at the time. So..to be continued..
  3. 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 :
  4. 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 am selling two sets of classic tamiya Piaa Accord VTEC wheels and Celica GT-Four racing radial tires 50724 and 50419. Both wheels and tires are 26mm and the wheels have +2mm offset and use 12mm hexes. Wheels also include wheel nuts. Tires come without inserts. I am missing the label for the second set of wheels. Nice combo for rally and drift applications.These wheels are not aceton friendly.I am asking for 30€ for everything but items can be also sold seperately for 7€ for a single tire set and 8€ for the single wheels set. I am also willing to take offers. These need to go! Might consider trading these for a set of HPI 26mm wheels or a set of x-pattern tires. Shipping is free for Europe.
  12. Hello, I'm new here although I registered back in 2004 I haven't been playing or posting since then. I have a 1987 Tamiya Toyota Celica (58064) that I was given in bits not working back in about 2000 by a work mate who I 'played' with during lunchtimes mucking about with RC's. He gave up on it and eventually made up a Tamiya RC Mini so the 2 of us would have lunchtime 'play' sessions racing our cars around the bandstand in the local park. It was fun. I'm guessing due to its age the Toyota's plastic chassis was a bit brittle and coupled with my inexperience at navigating it succesfully resulted in it one day clipping the corner of a wall which caused it to roll IIRC and did some damage to the rear suspension. Back then I spent a while trying to bond it all back together using the Greek Goddess of Epoxy Resin's.... "Araldite"! It worked for a while but later other bits started letting go so it eventually got put in a box and has lived under the stairs for the last 11+ years unused. Sound familliar?! I had to clear out the cupboard last weekend and re-aquainted myself with it. Dispointingly it hasn't mended itself on its own! I've looked around for parts for it on the Web but it seems they're scarce so I'm a-pondering what to do. The Technigold Motor + Ascom TX + RX + Servo's all work fine although the 7.2V battery has been lost at some point so being an electronics Tech by trade I've been testing it on a DC Bench Power Supply to prove it all still works OK. It does. So, one train of thought is to transfer the electrics to a new car (which would be the 1st I've ever built/bought from scratch). Any recommendations for a 50 year old beginner?! I've got a few pics of it if anyone wants to see it, OK to post pics here? Ta, Dave.
