Hope the group mods don't mind me posting this, but after testing by me and a racer i know have decided I am confident enough in my DT02/3 3 deg toe in uprights to offer them for sale. I have opened a Shapeways store called CTE RC (https://www.shapeways.com/shops/cotic-rc) and have put them on there with a few of my other designs. There are fitting instructions on the part links on the store. No one else makes toe in uprights for these chassis which is why i did them. Hopefully some of you might find them useful, or fun, or just a nice colour (There are about 10 colour options). Here's a pic of Andy's cool DT02 and DT03 race cars and my DT03 truggy with them installed. There is a full installation and rundown over on by DT03 Build log The improvements I wanted was to reduce the size and make the uprights dedicated to the metal driveshafts. The kit uprights are bulky and bind on the wishbones. As you can see in this comparison, the new uprights allow about 10mm more suspension travel, which gives more roll capacity and more grip. No one else makes toe in uprights for these chassis which is why i did them. If you race you will find these a big step forward from the kit version. Andy (my tame racer) reports more rear end grip and stability and the ability to get on the throttle earlier out of corners. He was able to dial in more front end grip because the rear was better. Also reported it had a bigger impact on performance in the DT03 on astro than the DT02. Hopefully some of you might find them useful, or fun, or just a nice colour (There are about 10 colour options). If you would like to order they are available as individual left and right items.

New to the hobby, my first car was the DT-03. After messing about with it on the road I wanted to see how it would do on a forest path. Bad idea! It somehow broke the front left suspension. The small retainer part was lost, thankfully I found the spring. (Hop-up CVA Damper set - part V5 lost). I'm wondering what I should do, from my searches online, I could just buy a new complete CVA Damper set, but a friend suggested just get a new set of non-Tamiya shocks. I like the idea, but now I'm not sure what would fit? As im a newbie, I've no idea about how strong I need the shocks to be or how it affects speed. Looking for advice, also if I replace the shocks, I'm guessing it would be wise to replace all four. What do I want to do with it? Nothing serious, I was hoping it would take more of an off road track, but maybe I will stick to roads and the driveway! Not going to race it or anything, it's all stock parts right now. (Was packed with hop-ups mentioned). Attached a pic of the CVA Damper set. Part missing was the "PAC-MAN" looking part seen on the top row.
Hi all! When I was young and got my first RC car, I had to choose between the lunchbox and neo fighter.. i choose the lunchbox and had a blast untill the esc cought on fire and stopped working. After a couple of years I threw the car and controller after hearing it was not repairable. Needless to say I have regretted that for many years :(. But today I received BOTH kits (rereleases). I couldn't stand the emptyness any more. I also bought bearing kits for both cars. What else do I need? I am about to order some paint tonight or tomorrow so I thought I'd just ask if there are any other items I will most certainly need when building the kits. Grease? Glue? I also need to buy servos and batteries.. haven't decided if I should go brushed or brushless yet.. i don't need the cars to go faster is is there any other benefits or should I just stay brushed? Thanks for your time!
I wasn't keen on this car when I first saw it. After a brain storming moment I realised what I could do to this car with the DT03 specific Hop Ups and Hop Ups I had kicking around doing nothing so ........ Here is my build, the Super Gripper'd DT03 As expected, the Tamiya instructions are noddy proof. I built the Hop Ups in to the build from the start. The alloy servo mount is very nice. 54565 >> and a Kimbro servo saver I forgot to take a picture of the bare chassis halves sorry. On the front end I used The DT03 Carbon Fibre shock tower 54562, really nice Tamiya weave in the Fibre. I had a spare set of TRF Aeration dampers so they went on with 54205 DB01 alloy damper bushings at the top and 54503 alloy suspension balls at the bottom. I also used 3Racing alloy C hubs and gray TRF 54247 reinforced adjusters. And 54396 Front Damper Lower attachment pins and 54395 Low friction shafts. I used TRF201 hex screws and not the kit screws. at the rear I used the DT03 alloy suspension bridge parts 54566. Now here I cheated a lot I used the complete rear gearbox from my DT02 Desert Gator It has in the Tamiya ball diff 53863, 3Racing Universal shafts and 5 Stars rear hubs and 5 stars alloy hexes. Anti roll bar is DT02 It also has a Losi 10.5 motor powered by a Turnigy Trackstar 100amp esc. So I then just bolted the whole thing on with the DT03 Carbon Fibre rear shock tower 54563 and TRF Aeration dampers. Again using 54503 and 54205. Such an easy build, I do not like the look of the kit rear wing so I used a TRF201 wing 54211. The car also has the DT03 alloy battery bar 54564 DF03 rear wheels and I have used Schumacher yellow mini spike tyre with Schumacher Tubby inserts. Just waiting for my paint to come from modelsport for the body shell.
