Nothing new here.. Tamiya is repacking the dead horse TG10 Mk2, yet again for 2020. I don’t dislike this kit, I used to own the TG10 Mk2 Pro and converted it to run the OS FS-26S-C V.2. I sold it and regret it every time I see a TG10. The OS 4 strokes are long gone now and fetching crazy $ I would buy one of these iterations if Tamiya would get serious about it’s price.. no one is going to pay $400 for a kit that has been around for decades, that didn’t sell. A few years ago they did release a version That had narrower arms so it could rub 190mm bodies.. one smart move by Tamiya on a chassis that doesn’t sell.. 😂
Hello! Still not sure if i should post that, i guess some People might dont like the conversion, but since i converted a TGX to Brushless also, they way for the TGR Project was free All started with some TGX Cars, somewhere i saw the TGR Chassis and liked it, specialy with my most loved Body Shell the TS020 Toyota GT - One which was also hard to get. Since the TGR has only 2 Speed Gear i had to use a TGX Single Speed shaft and Added a Modul 1 Main Gear, shortened the TGX Gear Support, using a TB02 Motor Mount which has the same height as the TGR Bearing Carrier. ofc the Shaft is Shorter then the TGR 2 Speed Shaft so i had to make a New Prop Shaft which is 4mm longer then an original TGR one, the Chassis itself is selfmade since i dont want do Drill the One Original Chassis Plate i got, u cant get another new one at a reasonable price lol ! The Wheel Question was one of the hardest parts, the Original Wheels are Rare and expensive to, so i was searching around, ending in the 1/8 Nitro Race Car Corner, the Front Foam Wheels fits kinda 95% and are dirt cheap, with the Right Rim Type they can be added on the Original 12mm Hex Hubs (just reverse them ) of the TGR with an Custom made Nut to accept the 12mm Hole of the Wheel. fittet with an custom Upper Deck to and some parts from different Brands it finally come together, just need another ESC, the Mamba Monster Max is way to big for it lol It did his First drive out on a Cold Street, totaly fun Regards, Oswald
