  1. Good mornin' i am not new to RC but last time i build something was in 2007 or 2008. So here's my problem and i need your help: A few days ago my tamiya neo scorcher arrived and i reached step 32. Do you guys recommend soaking the tires in warm water and dish soap to make them soft and fit easier on the rims ? The way its shown in the manual i will never fit them, they are insanly strong and tight. greetings
  2. So, I build this with spares I had end then ordered the last couple of pieces to finish it. How did it turn out?
  3. Does anyone in the US have a spare #2595199? It's the U Shaft for the TT-02B and DT-03. I'm looking for 1 to finish a Plasma Edge 2, but would LOVE 2 so I can build another for a friend.
  4. I know this is probably a well-worn topic, but I couldn't find too much info on quick fixes for this sort of thing. The screws that hold the steering levers down on the chassis of the TT02/TT02B are a known weak spot, and probably due to putting brushless power through it, in combination with monster wheels, it seems that one of those screws has stripped and I am no longer able to tighten in without getting a good amount of wobble on that side. I've attached a pic of my steering setup; I already have an upgraded steering assembly from yeah racing that has flanges instead of the even crappier self-tapping step screw that comes stock. Any way I can get it to hold in there without working itself loose every 15 minutes or so? (Note: the plastic steering arms are on their way out, to be replaced by turnbuckles, but no use doing that until I fix this problem first)
  5. Hi all, have spent a lot of time reading here so though it was time to contribute! As a child I had an original grasshopper as my second RC car, can’t recall what the first one was! That’s long gone but I still have the M01 Mini I got as a birthday present. Also have an M02 chassis I plan to build up soon. Both will be on modern esc and radio gear, though I do still have the acoms set from the mini, just appears it no longer works. After building a Plasma Edge 2 for my girlfriend’s son I decided I needed a piece of the action again! So far it’s as follows: TT02B Dual Ridge in pearl white Futaba 3PV & R304SB Radio Futaba S3014 waterproof servo GPM Ballraced steering Full bearings Blue star dish wheels on the way Will add metal gears for the new motor Ive run it once and fancy more power. I plan on going for a hobbywing 3652 5400kv combo which I know/think is way over the top. My thinking here is as I’m still running NIMH I won’t be getting anything like full power from it, plus I can tone it down on the transmitter for normal running but have the option of it being silly fast if I want to get a lipo. As the motor combos are the same price on all power options am I heading in the right direction or am I missing something? edit: believe I am missing something on doing some further reading. Need to decide between 3300, 4000 or 5400kv.
  6. Hi all. Finally built the neo scorcher and son loves it. Had a couple of issues. 1. I have put monster wheels (12cm) on it as everywhere we run it needs more clearance. I understand this puts more strain on the motor. Would using 16t pinion be enough or would I need a new spur gear/pinion combo? 2. Also the base of the shock which holds the spring has broken already. Is this normal? Where is the best place to get replacement parts in uk? Thanks all
  7. In the market for a new 4WD buggy. Performance wise, which is the better chassis ? Which do you guys like better ? The Thunder Shot chassis is obviously a lot more valuable but I’m going to be running it so not too worried about that.
  8. This arrived to me from Hong Kong on 27/4/16 I bought it from Jazrider on eBay. Huge update and more pictures tomorrow.
  9. Has anyone used fastrax aluminium lower suspension arms and shock towers for the TT02B? And if so did you manage to install dampers with the screws and spacers provided because I cant
  10. After some help with paint codes.... does anyone know a paint code for the blue metallic neo scorcher. Realise it’s a special edition, but wondering if anyone knows if it’s possible to buy the same, or a similar paint
  11. In our (son & I) fleet we have a Dual ridge buggy, it's been hopped up & still goes well considering it has spent as much time cartwheeling through the air as on it's wheels. My question relates to the damper stays. Now this thing has been crashed, a lot, so I understand the need for flex in the suspension components but the damper stays flex where the shocks mount. They flex massively, up & down, in & out and probably some other planes I don't understand! Can anyone advise on an upgrade? Alloy mounts don't seem the best idea (for us) & I've seen carbon mounts & FRP mounts, anyone got any experience?
  12. Brand new kit. The way things are going right now I don’t know if I will get to it anytime soon. Thought I would see if anyone is interested here. In addition to the kit I also have the aluminum motor mount, heat sink, and front and rear tires. *I thought I had pics here at work, but apparently not. I will post them when I get home tonight.* I am asking $200 shipped in the US. PayPal payment accepted.

  14. I'm after a replacement for my knackered Rising Storm body. Not fussy about paint colour (if already painted), or shell design (Dual Ridge, Neo Scorcher, Aero Avante - , Rising Storm or Gravel Hound) - any will fit. It's just for bashing, so cheap as chips please. Alternatively if anyone knows or sees one going cheap in the UK please let me know as I have a spare tin of Metallic Purple which has no home! Thanks!
  15. We've been doing a lot of on road parking lot racing this past summer. A bit of a change from our normal trail runs and bash sessions. Forgot how much fun it was to go fast! Always wanted to do an on-road buggy - wider stance, bigger tires, they can handle a lot more power than a touring car in my humble opinion. I've got a 5700kv setup here that I tried to run in my XV01 and it was just too much for me. So I started looking for a cheapish buggy to do a conversion just so I could put this motor in it. After doing some digging, I picked up a TT02B MS. I know there are better buggies out there, but I have a TT02 touring car and it's nice being able to mix and match hop-ups between the two. The MS is well equipped right out of the box and frankly, I just like the TT chassis! It's set up with a 15t brushed for now just to sort out the suspension and trims. No hop ups installed yet, the MS is for sure the way to go as it comes pretty loaded right out of the box. Tires are from an older TL01B kit that I clipped off the spikes and sanded down into slicks. The rear has a custom shock tower that lowers the wing an inch and allows me to run Tamiya'a mini CVA's at 55mm all around. Front is lowered with the same 55mm shocks and threw some universals in there as well. (Ok, I guess I did add 1 hopup!) Ovrerall stance is about the same ride height as a touring car. With the wing lowered, it's pretty sleek looking. I didn't care for the body to be honest and was looking for another but once I got it all painted and set on the chassis, it grew on me. Defintely looks the part for a speed machine Fun little build, can't wait to get it and and stretch its legs...Since it is almost winter here, updates will be forthcoming as soon as the weather cooperates.
  16. Hi everyone! I built my Neo Scorcher and have been loving it! I've done a few upgrades so far: Bearings Alloy steering Full turnbuckles Steel gearbox joints and steel universal shafts Alloy center shaft and steel joints Sport Tuned Motor Alloy motor mount (not installed yet) Tamiya large dish wheels (2 sets) 1 with Pro line Dirt Hawgs, 1 with Tamiya Dual Block I may also upgrade shocks soon. My question is... I'd like to go brushless or at least try it out. I'm returning to the hobby after many years so I'm new to brushless motors. I'd like something that can run well with the TBLE-02s speed control included in the kit. I'm running nimh packs. 2000 mah and 3000 mah. Do I need a sensored motor or can I use either sensored or sensorless? I'd like a jump in speed but I don't want to loose too much torque. I mostly just bash but occasionally run on an old dirt track. Oh and I'd also like something moderately priced. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and suggestions! Thanks!
  17. I am putting together a Neo Scorcher TT-02B and I know there are several threads dedicated to the build so I hope its not bad form to create another. If this needs to be merged to another just let me know. It just seems like a lot of people are inquiring about buggys and the TT02B is always recommended. I am putting one together with as many Tamiya hop-ups as possible. There are a couple of non-Tamiya parts as the previous threads have pointed out some flaws in the usually remarkable Tamiya Parts. I opted for the Eagle Racing Universal shafts and a YR Motor mount that has not arrived yet. The Eagle uni's are known to stay together better when the buggy is overpowered and the YR Motor mount allows for some ridiculous gear combos, of course, coupled with the TT02 high speed spur gear bushing. It's looking like it going to be a fun build. I ordered a full set of DF-02 differential gears and housings so those were assembled first. Filing down the 2 bevel gears that go on the propeller shaft was a pain. I did not have access to a electric grinder so a flat hand file was used. The metal gears have a collar that is 1mm too thick. Every other gear was a drop in fit out of the package. The front was packed with 500,000 wt differential oil and the rear is going be ran dry with the exception of a light coat of the included Tamiya grease. The aluminum propeller shaft arrived today so the build has started. The plastic propeller is shown for comparison. A monster is being born!
  18. Hello all, I had no bites for a trade so I thought I would put my TT02BMS up for sale. It has had little use and is in very good condition the only damage is the two cracks in the body shell shown in the pictures. Included is a 540 motor and a acoms servo. The price is £80 including UK postage, please let me know if you would like any more info. Thanks
  19. Hi all, Introduction thread for myself.. Started my Tamiya addiction 20yrs ago with a TA01 traded from a school friend, soon upgraded to a TL01 and immediately started the hop up journey.. Dragged it out of the attic acouple of years ago and started tinkering again. Decided for my birthday last year to get something more modern with spares still floating around for and decided on a TT02B MS, not the most advanced or capable buggy I know, but the hobby to me is constant evolution and tinkering rather than buying RTR. So after a year of annoying niggly little problems I think I finally have nailed it and have a reliable buggy to start modding intently! Current spec is: MS basics (Ball Raced, GRP Uprights, Full Turnbuckle Set, Ally Prop & Cups, Steel Driveshafts, GRP Batt Holder, 0.5 Toe-in Rear uprights) - Think thats all.. Absima CR3P 2.4Ghz System Leopard Brushless 13T System Tamiya Alloy motor mount Lipo 2s 5200mah Tamiya High speed gear set Tamiya 64T Spur Tamiya 22T Pinion Tamiya Diff lock block in rear G/B White Wheels and road tyres I've just taken delivery of the metal diff parts bag from df01, i have been getting a cracking noise from the gearboxes under heavy braking, gonna change rear first to see if that resolves it and to try and narrow down which gearbox is stressing currently.. Previous problems I've resolved are screws backing out of suspension mounts. . Glued... Motor stuttering, new motor bought, still stuttering, massive blue splash seen at the connectors, replaced with 5mm gold bananas.. Sorted! Forgetting to charge Lipo after use, on number 5 now, not ruining another one now! Lesson finally learn! So hi to all, I'll catch you around the site!
