  1. I am trying to get my WR-02CB to drive in a straight line. Well…as much as possible with this chassis. The trim/servo saver has been centered and both tie rods set to 35mm (slightly toe out) as per manual. In addition, for the front the following hop-ups have been installed: Tamiya 50473 - Hi-Torque Servo Saver Tamiya 54587 - Aluminum Servo Stay (WR-02,GF-01) Tamiya 54661 - Aluminum Hub Carrier (8 Degree) (GF-01, WR-02) I’m looking to adjust the tie rods so the front wheels either be straight or even slightly toe in. Been reading various threads on TamiyaClub and there was mention the following might help: Tamiya 54610 - OP.1610 Clamp Type Aluminum Wheel Hub Will this take the slight wobble out of the front wheels?
  2. Greetings, First post on Tamiya Club. I have problem with one of my cars and wondering if anyone has experienced this before. The car ‘Comical Grasshopper’ WR-02CB has been running fine for the last couple months. I decided to swap the stock 18T pinion out and install a 20T steel pinion. After I did the swap, the motor (Super Stock BZ) could not turn the gears. Doesn’t make sense I know :-(. I removed the motor, and confirmed the gears are rotating freely. I can also rotate the left gearbox joint and right gearbox joint independently clockwise (forwards) and anti-clockwise (backwards). And both together clockwise and anti-clockwise. It’s when I install the motor (mount in the 18T 20T holes) everything locks up if I try to rotate both left and right gearbox joint forwards or backwards. With motor mounted I can rotate each left/right independently. ie. If I rotate left gearbox joint clockwise, the right gearbox joint will rotate anti-clockwise and visa versa. I have un-assembled/re-assembled the gearbox numerous times to make sure it is indeed assembled correctly and I’m sure it definitely is. I have an old Wild Willy 2 WR-02 chassis and can rotate both the left and right back wheels forwards and backwards which will turn the motor. For this Comical Grasshopper WR-02CB, I can’t for some strange reason. I think I have run out of ideas. Thanks.

    My new Willy...

    Just finished my WW2. Quite pleased in how it came out. Sprayed the body with Tamiya XF paint (don't remember the code, it's olive drab) to get rid of the toyish (on a Willy..?!) plastic sheen. Then the roll cage looked plasticky/fake in comparison. Out came a car underbody rubberised rust protection rattle can. Results were great: good sticking, great texture, tough on the rolls. Just masked out the light buckets on the top to maintain their plastic gloss. Hope this trick may prove useful to the fellow Willy builders.

    Sale: WR-02 (torso) Willys

    With no drives left for them, my Willys are now eligible to transfer out to another car owner who can give them seat time. In other words, I have two Willy torso figures for sale. They are both painted and include a steering wheel each. The green-helmeted figure has the hole in his arm for a screw filled in, whereas the blue-helmeted one still has the hole in his arm. I am looking for $45 CAD (includes shipping) for the pair, or $25 CAD (includes shipping) individually. This figure is open to negotiation, especially where a separate shipping quote is requested - meaning I will listen to offers. Both figures are based in Canada. PayPal is on hand and preferred. Pictures are available for assessing condition - both were in lightly-used runner vehicles: As always, I am happy to answer any questions via PM. Thanks for reading! Edit: Note that I will be absent from May 11th - 28th, so communications will be sparse during that time, and shipments delayed until the 29th.
  6. Sorry if this has been aswered before, but I'm still very fresh to RC cars. I just ordered a set of CVA short dampers to fit the WR-02 chassis. The thing is the seller says in the description that these are also compatible with CW-01 chassis .. is this true? If so, why do the CW01 dampers have a different part no. Heres' a copy of the description form the seller : - Brand : Tamiya - Item Type : WR-02 CVA Short Shock Unit - White - Item No: 84351 - Compatible with CW-01 chassis.
  7. This is going to be a really slow build as I don't have any paint yet and might have to wait a little while until I order some. ( when I persuade the Mrs, lol) I know this model has taken some flack on the site but when I saw it in Fusion hobbies for £119 UK pounds, I couldn't resist. I have always liked Vw's and this is officially licensed by Volkswagen. No blisters here. At this point, I asked the Mrs if she wanted to sniff the tyres, she did so after that I asked her if she wanted to sniff my willy. she didn't do that. Nice details on this shell. I have marked out the cut lines very roughly but it makes it easier to see. That's it for now, I might get some building done tonight but I am waiting for the rest of the bearings that have been ordered, might be here tomorrow.
