  1. Tamiyaclub community, earlier this year I finally built my first Tamiya kit, a Fighter Buggy RX Memorial, having lusted after Tamiya cars in toy stores as a kit. After quite a lot of fun, the rear tyres are worn and some questions have arisen: a) what are your recommendations for replacement tyres? I use the car to run around my garden and the countryside, i.e. usually on grass, often on gravel, sometimes on dirt and rarely on asphalt. The default rear tyres appear to wear rather quickly. I even consider putting Mad Bull front axles, wheels and tyres on the car. b) after a while my left rear wheel started to work itself loose multiple times during one run. With softer rear springs the issue happens less frequently. However, both the left and the right (to a lesser degree) wobble when spinning freely (lifted from the ground). From a quick inspection, the drive shafts seem straight. Switching wheels from left to right slightly changes the intensity, but not the tendency of the left wheel to wobble more intensely than the right one. My car is running Carson bearings. I suspect the wheels are slightly out of balance, but perhaps those drive shafts are the real cause Are the improved, more durable drive shafts available for this chassis? Thank you very much! Best, "Rookie Rabbit"
  2. Has anybody noticed or come across this problem?I've recently bought an already built BMW sti on a TA02 chassis,and the rear suspension doesn't look right.I've stripped it to add steel bearings and checked everything out,I had to replace the adjustable steering links on the front as fixed/short ones were fitted and the wrong hub link arms were fitted on the rear.I'm pretty sure all the right parts are now on.I have a manual (thanks to Tamiyaclub) and a TA01 chassis to compare.What I don't like is the fact that the rear hubs touch the springs on full extension.I'll probably fit the springs outside the bottom arms TA01 style as shown in the picture with the long screws (instead of inside the bottom arm as per the manual).I'd love to hear any thoughts or solutions if I have inadvertently cocked it up ;-),thanks in advance,gary
  3. hi all, thought i would post up a mod i discovered to convert the holiday buggy to very high quality cvd drive shafts for peanuts, what you will need, ansmann mad rat cvd shafts, get them from ebay for around £6 per pair , 5x8x3mm bronze bushing or any spacer that will make up 3mm wide, 3racing TT01 /DT02 steel diff outputs , the bush or spacers go inboard of the hub bearings, the work part! the ansmann shafts have a thicker cross pin at the diff end of the shaft so you will need to file/dremel around 0.3 mm from each side of the 3racing slots to allow the shaft to fit , takes about 1 minute with a dremel but will take a bit longer with a file , keep the grinding as symetrical as possible to keep the shaft rotation concentric. all fitted to the hub , and diff output ground out , all fitted and super smooth with far greater suspension travel , these ansmann shafts are some of the best i have used , the ones on my Xpro buggies are all still in great shape after hundreds of runs with very fast motor systems and endless driving abuse in filthy muddy condition's and lots of big hard jumps , for £6 a pair they cant be beat , same goes for the 3racing diff outputs , over 6 years of punishment and still perfect , total cost of the mod £10. happy Scotsman ,
