Half and Half
Kowalski86 posted a topic in General discussions"Half and Half" is what I've nicknamed Tamiyas more eccentric on-road chassis designs, that being the plastic "brick" designs that double as the transmission. I've mentioned before that the design is a bit worrisome for future repairs, but at the same time I've found it interesting from a design standpoint compared to the more recent tub TT designs. Is there any real benefit of the old "half and half" design over todays tub designs? I don't think that I've seen any other RC company attempt a similar design. I thought about this as I worked on an ECX 4WD and noticed just how similar it and about a dozen other modern 4WD RC chassis look.
Hello all, Well, the postal delivery folks brought me another eBay purchase today. I picked up what was advertised as a Tamiya M-05 chassis. It's a brand new roller chassis that's never been run, but completely assembled save for a steering servo, ESC, receiver, and tires. Not sure what I plan to do with this vehicle yet, but it was cheap so I snapped it up. However, after doing a bit of searching online (as you do) I've discovered that the wheels on the model itself look to be from the Tamiya 2006 Mini Cooper S (kit #58400), which used an M-03L chassis. Now, it's very likely the seller may have simply installed a spare set of wheels they had left from a different build, but it's now raised the question: how can I identify whether the chassis I've purchased is an M-03L or an M-05? Thanks in advance. Cheers! Michael
