@Jason1145 @Fuijo @svenb @GooneyBird Renamed and repurpursed this thread to cover all variations of the TB Chassis. TB01-05. And all the Evolutions. Tagged you 4 as I know you all have a soft spot for the TB01. The TB01 is the electric version of the TG10 Nitro car. The TB01 was released as a Rally Chassis and Touring Car Chassis and many years later the main chassis was released as a RTR truggy. I have a massive soft spot for the TB01. I'm currently building the Ultimate TB01 Touring car chassis if you haven't seen it, it is in the build section. The TB01 is made of the ultra rare tamiya plastic reinforced with steel 😂🤣. For those who have dealt with the TB01 know what I'm talking about.... For those who don't... The TB01 is a rather tough chassis. Like bomb proof tough. It can take one heck of a battering which IMO makes it a perfect rally chassis.... The down side is. Its heavy and doesn't make the best touring car chassis.. Well maybe for pushing other cars off the track. Lol. The rally car I've had since 2001. The Levant since December 2017. Both the Ferrari's are new to my house after working out a deal with Fuijo to help me build my Ultimate TB01. I didn't think it possible but I made the Enzo look even cooler IMO. Hop Up Wing 53470 as recommended in the manual. Leaving left out the TB01 rally car needed to sneak in. And then the Levant (TB01 based with Tamiya parts to make up the suspension) decided to get in on the action.
This is my short wheelbase XV-01 or what I call the XV-01S. This conversion shortens the standard 257mm wheelbase to 237mm wheelbase allowing you to use the original TA03fs bodies such as the Peugeot 206 and Corolla WRC, or any of the short TA03rs bodies as well. I always enjoyed playing with the TA03FS but as we know parts are not cheap and hard to come by, and are known to crack easily. I then bought the XV-01 Long Damper Spec and enjoyed the durability and performance compared to the TA-03fs. I wanted a strong platform in which I could use the old short bodies, so the XV-01 made the most sense as it is front engine 4wd. Thus the XV-01S was born. Parts List: Upgraded parts include: Ball diff for front and rear (TA06), metal 18t pulley front and rear. Running a tamiya 10.5t sensored motor with the TBLE-02s esc with the tamiya fan. Stock gearing on 2s. metal gear Spectrum servo with gyro. The pictures below show the XV01S next to the original TA03fs for comparison.
Hey all. This is a really simple one. TB01 rally car, currently running a sports tuned motor with GPM alloy motor mount, prop shaft and steel gears. Looking for a new motor, NOT going brushless, so looking for a reccomendation for a brushed motor. ESC is a hobbywing 1060. im thinking either the HPI firebolt 15t or a Tamiya motor of some description, it used to run an 11x2 Team Orion motor, but it died a while ago. Any suggestions?
