    Terra Conqueror Orange Edition

    In this build thread I'm gonna build a Terra Conqueror with orange and black chassis. I think I have most of the parts I need to complete this build, so next step will be to go through my parts and see what I got. Stay tuned, next update coming soon.

    2018 Manta Ray build.

    I got this for my birthday in May, but I was waiting for my upgrades to get here. Everything is finally here, so let's get started!
  3. So when I was a kid I always wanted a manta ray, but it never happend, 25 years on here we are. The intention for this build is for the car to be used mainly at the beach. So here we go! 26/08/2018 FINISHED PRODUCT, See bottom of thread for more.
  4. Got some spares leftover from the vintage Blazing Star i bought which became my Terra Conqueror. I don't think i will have another DF01 so clearing out: Leftovers from plastic gearset upgrade. 1x ball diff casing, 2 x gear diff casing, remaining gearbox parts on sprue and original gearset. £2 plus £3 postage in UK Pair of original vintage CVAs. Manta Ray/Blazing star spec. Mint condition, no leaks. £10 posted. Original vintage Blazing Star prop shaft and outdrives. £3 posted. Top Force hop up steel prop shaft, no outdrives. £4 posted. Brand new front plastic shock tower on sprue with plastic hexes. £3 posted Robinson steel pinion 0.6 mod 17t. £7 posted. PM for paypal details. Should have added, will costs the same to post all of it together as separate so if you want the lot call it £20 posted.
  5. After spending a long time digging through threads, trying to find a comprehensive list of all the period Hop-Ups for the DF01/TA01 platform and its descendants, I realized there were none. So I decided to make my own. I used futureworks' list as a base and expanded it from there. It's still in progress, but its sorted by manufacturer, and I'm trying to get a link for an image of each hop up, preferably in original packaging for each item. I have used the exact terminology that Tamiya used for naming each Hop-Up. I hope this is helpful for people who want to make a "checklist" of sorts for their cars, or for others like me, who just wanted to see what was out there for this chassis. Please let me know if you have any additions or suggestions, or if you have any corrections.

  6. Evening, I've recently got all my old R/C gear out of the loft. Amongst my various shelf queens I found a TA02 (which I've since been informed is a TA01!) chassis that I'd bought. It seems pretty complete but as I've got a fair few road cars I wouldn't mind wide tracking this one and jacking it up with a truck body of some sort. I've heard that bits from a DF01 can be used but I'm not 100% sure on what bits I need. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great. Here's the chassis as it was pulled out of the box. Cheers, Sammo
  7. As much as I enjoyed building my first carbon chassis, I've decided for the mucking about that I do I really don't need it. So, here is my Fibre-Lyte carbon chassis kit which I built into a DF01 Terra Conqueror this summer. It's the Fibre-Lyte CSC/Carbon6 material, mixture of carbon and glass which is tougher than both and lighter and stiffer than FRP still. Comes with full Top Force metal parts, and all appropriate fixings and J-Parts. Includes 850 bearing'd steering arms, and full carbon Fibre Lyte battery straps for a stick pack. The battery posts are still on the J sprue for if you want to run saddle packs, but you'd need new battery straps for that. I've purposefully left the shock towers out of this kit so someone with a TA01 could get this too without having random buggy bits. It's only been run once very briefly without an undercowl, then about 10 times with an undercowl fitted running on grass. There's a couple of marks on the underside, but mostly mint. There are some scuffs and marks on the aluminium uprights where I had to grip them with pliers to tighten them up, and there's some tape residue from my Rx. Not shelfer material then, but great for a vintage racer project or just to have some very nice bits on your Manta Ray/Blazing Star/Top Force/TA01. Whole lot new would cost around £95. Anyone going to give me £70 posted? Going to leave it on here for a couple of days, but if it's not gone I'll pop it on ebay. Cheers Cy

    Top Force Undercowl

    Genuine Tamiya Top Force undercowl as used on my Terra Conqueror carbon chassis. Been run on tarmac very occasionally and grass about 10 times. Painted metallic black, bit scuffed, cut as high as possible to get to my Terra Conqueror shell, so could be trimmed and neatened up for a Top Force. They're £16 new and then there's paint on top of that. Anyone give me £12 posted? Going on here for a couple of days then I'll sling it on ebay. Cheers Cy
  9. Clearing out some of the DF01 spares I accrued when upgrading the mint Blazing Star I picked up into my Terra Conqueror Evo. Got the barely used CVAs on eBay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263332910023 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263332901741 As well as these I have another pair of each item, plastic DF01 shocks mounts, metal wheel hubs for the driveshafts, steering arms, MSC, plastic top wishbones, a DF01/TA01 bathtub chassis and a bunch of other screws and spares. Give me a shout if you want anything. Cheers!
  10. So I'm sitting here a bit bored at Taipei airport waiting for my flight home wondering idly about a new design project. I've noticed that top end 4WD racers have caster angle built into the c hubs to add to the kick up at the front of the buggy. Added to this as I've been filling my evenings this week whilst here on business, I found an article on Jamie Booths Manta Ray from 1991 and he says one of the biggest things he did was get some extra caster added to the custom c hubs he had made. I have a Thunder Dragon and a Terra Conqueror DF01 now, and I think fairly easily I could do caster c-hubs for them via Shapeways. I just have no idea how much to add. My DT03 has 25 deg, but I haven't seen that much on 4WD for some reason. Anyone got any ideas? Looks like both my buggies have something around 10 deg kick up, so should I be trying to add 5 deg? 10 deg? 15 deg? All help, hand waving, wild speculation greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  11. Project Terra Conqueror Evo is tip-toeing to completion, and for the first time on a buggy I have options for the position of the inboard top suspension link because I've installed the Top Force FRP suspension mountings. I currently have the rear set in the top centre hole which makes the top and bottom suspension arms parallel. There are two other holes, both lower, 1 inboard, 1 outboard. What is the effect of using one of these other holes? I can see it would lower the instant centre of the suspension, but not sure why this would be good? Cheers!

    Terra Conqueror Evolution

    Been fascinated by DF01's since I learnt that the Top Force was a derivative. Love all the different chassis and other options there are. Then I spotted the Terra Conqueror and fell in love! I'm a sucker for a bit of orange. Unfortunately Terra Conquerors are like hen's teeth, and I wanted a project. I did buy a Top Force ReRe and then had to send it back due to a couple of big bills arriving that week, but I had already spent a bit on some of the bits I'd need to put on it. I realised that as I don't like the Top Force body the whole kit is a bit lacking due to needing to upgrade the shocks, motor mount, proper motor and ESC etc. Needs a lot of money spending on it after buying a pretty pricey kit. So I started picking up bits and pieces of must have DF01 hop up parts over the last few weeks whilst looking for a donor car. Picked up a virtually unused Blazing Star for reasonable money, and got a good chunk back selling the wheels and body. Now the final parts have turned up, here we are on the ground floor: A parts list: Blazing Star DF01 rolling chassis. Has some mad Futaba 40 MHz Tx and Rx too, which is kind of cool TBLE-02S Speed Passion 13.5R MMM motor Robinson steel 19t pinion Pargu metal motor mount Yeah Racing Universals for front axle TA02 Plastic Touring Car gearset Full bearing set TBG Terra Conqueror Repro Body MCI Terra Conqueror decals Tamiya PS white and orange paint Top Force Parts Bag E with chassis posts and upgraded prop shaft Top Force J Parts Top Force shock mounts Fibre Lyte Lower Deck Fibre Lyte Upper Deck Fibre Lyte battery straps Assorted M3 button flange head screw and nylock nuts DF02 Y-Parts x 2 for changing the CVA's to black to match Terra Conqueror TRF501X Ti Nitride shock shafts (originally purchased to convert the Top Force kit shocks to pistons and already posted when I sent the TF back) 0.5mm aluminium shims for the suspension Tamiya 5mm rod ends M3 threaded rod 200mm to make top arms and Top Force steering centre rod Aluminium 5mm ball nuts for shock top mounts and suspension top arms Tamiya 5mm ball ends with 9mm thread for wishbone end shock mounts Schumacher Black 12mm Hex 4WD 2.2" wheels front and rear Schumacher Cat Block Rear Tyres for front and rear + medium inserts There are metal 12mm hexes and some Lexan sheet to make an undertray on their way and I have some spare low friction suspension shafts and 5mm ball ends that will get used in appropriate places. Should be interesting......
  13. Got a project on. Started out with a mint Blazing Star DF01 and tonight I installed the gearboxes onto a Fibre Lyte carbon chassis lower deck. I got the proper Top Force parts bag with the chassis deck mounting and the upgraded stainless prop shaft. Only problem is that it appears to be about 10mm too short when I try to install it with the carbon chassis. Is the fibre Lyte chassis longer wheelbase than the top force? Or are the prop shaft gearbox out drives different on the top force compared to the Blazing Star/Manta Ray/regular DF01? Can't understand why it wouldn't fit. I am on holiday with only the parts to build the car so I don't have the original coat hanger shaft to compare it with. Any suggestions?
  14. Looking for some aluminium servo mounts for my DF01 project. My research only seems to turn up "short" mounts which I have read are too short. Got some part numbers for mounts that should work (49093) but these aren't available anywhere because they are an old part. GPM don't seem to have anything and all the old Top Force threads on here just say "aluminium servo mounts". Drawn a blank. Can anyone point me at aluminium servo mounts for a current buggy that will fit a Top Force/DF01? Cheers!
  15. After buying a Top Force ReRe last month all sorts of Real Life things happened so it had to go back unopened for a full refund. Modelsport were ace about this by the way. Good lads. Been browsing ebay for a DF01 and watching them go for silly money and placed a bid on a nice looking thing and left it. Turns out I won it for a vaguely sensible price and it turned up today I know this definitely counts as a First World Problem, but it's just TOO nice. I bash my cars up, and run them on gravel. I have an idea of getting some Top Force decks and putting some other bits and pieces in it. I have a Terra Conqueror repro body lined up. But look at it! It's pristine! It's even got some mad Futaba 40mhz radio gear for the MSC that it came with. Properly conflicted as I wanted this as a bit of a summer project to slowly buy bits for and tinker with. I'm not into shelf queens, but this is just so mint original it seems a shame to bash it up. What to do? Advice much appreciated. Thanks team!
  16. Selling these perfect condition Blazing Star wheels and tyres. What to run the car as a buggy and these are just so nice they need to go to someone who will appreciate them. As they look on a Blazing Star As you can see tyres are virtually unused. Would also suit the FJ Cruiser and similar. Full set of 4 for £20 plus postage
  17. Selling this Pristine original Blazing Star body set. Came on an eBay purchase and selling because I have a terra conqueror shell lined up. Only mark I can see is a small scratch on the red decal next to the front body clip. See photos. Happy to post up more specific pics if you would like. Selling body and wing. £25 plus postage. I have a spare TBG body box so will post anywhere in the world as it will be safe in packaging.
  18. Got a bit of an idea for a project. Need a DF01 rolling chassis. No need for a body even. Anyone got anything they want to move on?

    TA01 to DF01 Conversion

    I have a TA01 with an FRP chassis which I have previously used from drifting. Among a collection also including a TA02 and TA03F with much the same purpose and spec. The TA01 is the least relevant to me, and poorest performing of the 3 (although they do all have their unique traits which are fun). So what to do with it? Well the title makes that obvious, but I'd like to think there are a few people here who'd have the same idea. Built originally from a Cayenne kit, so has the "correct" black gearboxes. The FRP chassis is assembled from broken down Top Force Re-Re parts from Ebay. So I do have the rest of the essential J parts and mount bag parts. I haven't decided quite yet to what extent I'll compromise on using kit correct parts, but it will be a runner, so no real point being super picky. At first it will be Black Star dish rear wheels front and rear, and OP84 Square Spike tyres. For damper's i'm considering TGM02 Aluminum damper set 53545. These are a little more period looking, much cheaper than Hicaps, but a tiny bit too long at 100mm. They look like Gold 53280 Super Low Friction Dampers to me, just longer, so I think they would work well, but not sure if i shorten them with spacers if they'll have enough travel left. Other than that the new aeration buggy dampers that come in pairs and I've found similarly priced, I'm sure these are awesome but i'd prefer something without a threaded body.. I could also settle for something cheaper. Body is probably the part i'm least sure about. I'll probably end up with 2. A box art Top Force and custom Gravel Hound or Sand Viper runner body. Here's how it looks now.
  21. As title. I am aware of the Fibre-Lyte parts, thought I'd try my luck here first. The Press Parts Bag would be the ultimate, as I do need the wing stay and battery plates too (kinda). I'm after a fair few other DF01 parts too, converting a TA01 with FRP chassis to DF01. Cheers.
