  1. THIS has been a long time coming! A long time WAITING. This is the very start of what I'm calling "Life 2.0" šŸ˜ What does that mean? WELL...... After more than 9 years of living destitute, begging like an animal - and being harshly shunned for it. After not knowing how we were going to make Co-Pays, or some weeks EAT...... It's ALL OVER! Covered for the rest of my Life, providing for Kids and my Grandbabies.... Time to get SPOILED!!! šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ˜Š So the first of the Kits I'll be doing, is the FF-03, which some of you already know. I DOVE RIGHT IN and started building! So I missed out on doing a step by step... Which is OK, because there's Guys here who can do it much better than I. šŸ˜œ I will be posting highlights, and all modifications here... There might be a small chance that I come up with something that you guys hadn't thought of. šŸ˜² It could happen!!! šŸ˜œ These will also end up out of order.... As I get to processing pictures of the build. I promise I'll be more organised by the next Build. I just got EXCITED!! Starting in the middle, with a different way of fitting the Servo, offering more protection, then doing the same for the other side, for the ESC and Reciever. I guess for Racing Weight - the Chassis is quite narrow! Starting with the Servo fitting, 20kg, all Metal Geared for some OVERKILL!!! šŸ˜œ Thanks to the 2.4GHz Radio, I can do enough adjustments to keep this 20kg Servo from RIPPING apart the Steering Gear!! In the FF03, the Servo is held in with the typical two Screws.... But the support is a wide open Plastic Frame, that leaves the Servo basically hanging over the side of the Chassis, COMPLETELY open and exposed to Road Debris and abrasives!! I'm compelled to FIX that! .... I'm notorious for making odd shapes out of Styrene. šŸ˜œ (I'll STILL be using my Poorman's Shapeways when possible!! I like working with Styrene)šŸ˜‰ Like THIS!! I've filled the hole...... Just a bit of reengineering!! šŸ˜‰ AND it will also help prevent Pebbles from being kicked into the Steering by the Tires!! Tried to make it look as good as possible... but its first function, IS function! Of COURSE my OCD had to do the OTHER side - so it's symmetrical!!! šŸ˜œ I'm really having so much fun building AND modifying this! BTW, they DO clear the Body on each side, by at least 18mm. šŸ˜Š
  2. I have some unused FF03 parts. Brand new, never run. The plate and a couple of the plastic parts have been dry assembled to ch3ck an idea. I was going to use these to build a 3 gear stand-up conversion for my TRF211 but they didn't fit. The gearcase isn't included as it has already been sold, but I have all the rest of the plastic parts still on the sprue. Ā£10 posted for the lot. Ā£25 worth of parts if you buy new in packet from a shop.
  3. Now sold, thanks. James. After picking up a super cheap TA05 V2 today I decided it was time to sell my FF03. It comes with a few hop ups including tuned springs and anti roll bars ( also includes the spare bars ) , Alloy motor mount plate, Alloy spur gear holder, official Tamiya hex screws almost throughout (with a few exceptions) and also fitted with Tamiya Reinforced Slicks Type B2, with TA04 Pro inner shaped foam inserts and Team Losi White Dish Wheels. Also includes the original motor mount and a spare set of wheel hexes. I decided to leave in the LRP Quantum ESC, Reedy KR 12x2 Motor and a steering servo. It is good condition, the base of the chassis is a bit scuffed up, but would make a great runner/club racer car. Selling cheap on here before it goes on ebay. Ā£75 posted within the UK. If needed I can swap the wheels and tyres for kit standard Tamiya 6 spoke gunmetal wheels and tyres from the Raybrig HSV 010 kit for Ā£70 posted. Open to offers / possible swaps. Any questions, feel free to ask. James.
  4. As per the title, looking for hop ups for my FF03, new or used. Primarily the carbon motor brace, aluminium suspension mounts 3 of 1XD and 1 of 1A, universals, etc etc. Basically what have you got for the FF03 hop ups wise thats for sale ?? Many thanks, James.
  5. 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.
  6. Looking for a TRF418 onwards and a FF03. Rolling chassis or complete setups, just let me know what you have and how much you want. Cash waiting and ideally from within the EU but would consider from further afield. They are for a friend, I'm not hording honest Thanks Doug
  7.

  8. I try to race at one of the local clubs at least once a week, we don't have a club in the town where I live, but there are three or four within 30 miles radius. There's a bunch of four or five of us that usually descend on the chosen club of the evening, and we try not to cause too much trouble. However sometimes its just just much more fun to take something to race that's a little bit less serious than the latest 1/10 competition touring car, so we've started racing our older cars. It came about as we were reminiscing about the old cars that were still hanging around in the lofts and sheds. My first proper car was a TA01 tiger strip Escort Cosworth, and I still have it, sort of. It's a bit like triggers broom and only a handful of parts are original. It's still great fun to drive tho, and very forgiving. Thats mine on the left wearing the Cavalier body, and my mates TA02 wearing a Carson Astra body. They looks really good as they tussle, pitching violently into each corner. They are nowhere near as composed as a modern chassis, but much more forgiving. We are using old 27t stock motors as the track is quite small and has a ban on brushless to keep the speeds down. This isn't a bad thing per se, as it means the cars are having a relatively gentle time. More recently, I tried one of my FF01s there, it was great but the old plastic seems to be very brittle and I broke the front gearbox. It was good while I lasted tho. Ill get more pics when we try to take things less seriously. But we still end up having good racing.
