Folllowing dusting down my old Taisan Starcard Porsche TA02SW I used to race in an indoor track (stock car) some 20 years ago, I want to give it a new lease of life with a focus for some off-roading. Ideally I want to retain some of the original aspects and not spend too much but struggling to decide what is the best route to go to get good ground clearance and can attack some jumps...! Current thoughts are: - TA02T Ford150 (which I understand perhaps maybe a relatively easy conversion) - truck style, but looks like it can handle some bumps - Manta Ray / blazing star (?) reminds me of my Madcap days but unsure where to start converting this (also understand chasis needs changing out as well) - TA02 rally spec, though it seems the rally cars don't achieve great ground clearance and thus not good on grass/bumps and small jumps Some advice/thoughts would be appreciated. Once decided I can then try and work out what I need to order to crack on with my rebuild!! p.s. found this some other threads related to this but nothing specific https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=48983&id=2193 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/89225-%C2%BB-the-definitive-df01ta012ff01-wheelbase-guide-%C2%AB/&tab=comments#comment-744136 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/70837-help-from-ta02-experts/
It's been a while since I built a Tamiya "fun" kit. Good thing I just won a NIB Desert Fielder TA02T on eBay. This will be my very first TA build. I'm looking forward to it. I have a few questions: What is the body that comes on this truck? Is it the S-10? Is it the Ford F-150? Or is it something else? I can't tell for certain from the photos. I ordered ball bearings right away. Are there any other upgrades I should start with? I'm going to use this as an on-road truck with maybe some light off-road, rally running. Thank you.
Afternoon, I need to buy a pinion for my TA02 widetrack and don't know which one I need to gear the car properly. It's going to be running a 7.5t brushless motor and large wheels tyres (see the picture below). Can anyone advise me on what pinion to go for so the motor/ESC doesn't overheat constantly?
Is there a master list of aftermarket hop-ups for ta01,ta02, ta02T? I have f-150 SCT 58161, but finding parts is hard. I just managed to get some Alum Rear Upper Arms to fix the rear end http://www.ebay.com/itm/171137117390?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649, but now I broke an upright. Thanks
