  1. Hey all. I have a 257mm Alfa Romeo Giulia body i picked up from L&L. I was planning on getting a TT02S kit for it but there is no stock anywhere. Having looked the TT02D kit only looks good value with a sports tuned motor, oils shocks and bearings. I do fancy trying drift, but it would be on tarmac or around the family room :-). I could always drop some road tyres on the thing and its a slightly hopped up TT-02 right?
  2. hello everyone, im new to RC and recently built a TT02D a few weeks back. i got the GTR R33 body with the plastic wheels. i ran the kit 3 times for 5 minutes or so to have some fun in underground parking Garage (no great running areas for the time being...), asphalt mostly smooth. i ruined 1 rim destroying the hex and cracked the other 2 mildly. one rim is still good but i got some replacement rims form amazon, not the same design but i like them. the black red are plastic rims and the purple ones are aluminum. i believe i have CVA Tamiya shocks with 400 soft Tamiya oil and 1 hole seal installed in the shock. the shock is mostly upright setting. im planning to use the soft rubber tires on the aluminum rims. but will still use the drift tires on aluminum rims and a combo of drift or soft rubber tire on the plastic rims. i wont run the plastic rims on the road anymore to avoid breaking the rims. i ordered some aluminum oil dampers that will come in 2-3 weeks to replace the stock Tamiya ones. is there any other mods i can do to prevent the plastic tires from breaking so fast? drifting on asphalt was done at low to medium speeds and i did hit the concrete wall a few times, one causing a 1 inch crack below the headlight. the body has been fixed and strengthened with fiber and shoe goo. i got a old painted M2 body mostly reinforced before any sort of impact can occur. its far from perfect but perfect to take a bit of learning lessons. if this belongs more to build tips and techniques then feel free to transfer it there. i did a gunmetal grey front hood and rear trunk and a semi-gloss black spoiler.
  3. In a departure from all recent Mad Ax build threads, and in the words of Blue Peter, here's one I made earlier. All my other projects got put on hold recently when the local club announced a drift night. Usually I just grab a battered old shell for drifting, but this time I thought I'd go all-out - especially as the club also does a friendly "best drift shell" competition, and I always see it as my personal mission to take the challenge to one of my good race buddies, who has a collection of impressive drift shells that he's painted himself or bought in from others. So the project began with a TT02D Skyline that I bought at last year's Iconic Revival. I built it almost as soon as I got home so I could run it at the August Bank Holiday Iconic meet at WLRC. It poured with rain, but I was foolish and ran the car anyway. This might explain why the brushless ESC stopped working: Anyway, since then it's sat on the shelf, various attempts at repairing the ESC failed, so - apart from finishing the boxart silver Skyline shell and putting it up on the shelf to look nice - I had pretty much forgotten it existed until the club's Call To Action came along. The first thing I figured I needed was a 200mm shell. I was going to post a thread about this a few weeks ago, but basically, I'm bored of 190mm touring cars. Tamiya's super-scale looks are great for a factory-stock replica, but add a set of deep dish wheels and suddenly they look stupid. I wanted a proper wide stance on this drift car, so there was no alternative - I had to have a 200mm shell. A visit to Hobbybase in Westbury produced a HPI Weld JZX100 shell. It came with full light buckets, a hefty decal set and an enormous spoiler. Perhaps not the best-looking drifter ever made, or the most scale-realistic shell from HPI, but it would serve my purposes. Besides, large flat surfaces are ideal for a custom decal job. It took me a long time to settle on a colour scheme, but eventually I realised I was already a third of the way to a very impressive put table if I matched the car to an existing support / team vehicle. So, silver and blue is my official new team colours for 2016. And as Easter Friday approached, the weather improved enough to get some solid time in the paint booth that my lovely wife made for me: A couple of hours later and I had a fully-painted shell, and some light buckets, all shiny and chrome. I refrained from spraying chrome paint over my teeth and laughing maniacally. But only just. And so the project was well on the way to knocking my pit-buddy off the top spot of the "best shell" rostrum. to be continued...
