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.
So ... I finally got hold of a 206 today (for a pretty good price on eBay, it was advertised incorrectly and the owner didn't know much about it) to complete my TA03F-S holy grail. The Corolla is perfect, the 206 has seen some use but is still pretty good. I am pretty sure the 206 is a Tamiya shell, but if anyone knows how to tell, it would be interesting to hear.
This is a first, because I seldom come across an item that is unobtanium. I have 2 of these NIP and thought I would share with others in need. I have seen them fetch crazy prices on eBay and I am not looking to put anyone out. So how does $25 shipped in Continental US sound. If you are abroad, well I will need to add for shipping.
