  1. Project Start: 2023 Chassis - TRF419 / XV02 Body - L&L Models / TeamC Bmw e30 Electrics - LRP / SpeedPassion Paint - TBD Tamiya PS Ambitions - DIY livery / Decals - Functioning driving lights with brake. - Replicate RWD by running only rear belt / rear Diff / rear drive cups - Rear e brake? - Cockpit with cage, full spare wheel/tire textile harnesses As the title and name suggests a JTCC / Macau / Hill climb inspired Bmw M3 e30 build. I love doing less common liveries or bodysets so I’m thinking of doing the SOK livery from the JTCC racing series, alternatively a Motul / Rothmans rally livery. I have had the bodyset since 2020, it comes with a nicely 3D printed front grill, M3 Evo rear wing and wing mirrors. A thread start and a few reference images as inspiration to ignite the fire and create some ownership to the project. Option 1 Option 2
  2. Start date 2023/10 Tamiya XV-02 Body - Team C Subaru Legacy RS Electrics - Tamiya Brushless system 12-21T Ambitions - Capable box stock chassis for rough conditions Recreate Colin Mcrae’s Subaru Legacy RS that was rolled in Finland’s 1,000 lakes rally / 1992 Sweden Rally. Try to realistically “weather” or damage rear half of the car, particularly the trunk that is swinging open and strapped down while still travelling 11/10ths. I aim to make both white and Rothmans/555 liveries along with other bodyset themes mentioned in the title. Notes Where in contrast my TRF based builds are tarmac, cobblestone, dusty, light gravel, hard packed snow and ice patches. I think I’ve now chosen to commit and have chassis rig to withstand harsher conditions in rally - gravel, mud, snow, harsh chipped ice. Colin McRae, who participated in the 1992 WRC Round 9 1000 Lakes Rally from the SUBARU World Rally Team, finished in 8th place despite three major falls during the race. Colin McRae supported the early days of SUBARU's rallying activities and is nicknamed (McCrash) for his aggressive drifting and the sheer number of crashes.
  3. ... Are there any metal bevel gears compatible with the XV-02 oil filled gear diff 22049? Thank you!
  4. **Braking News — Tamiya presented new spare parts at the Nuremberg Toy Fair: All body posts are now available individually without having to buy the B-parts. Owners of TT02 variants will be particularly pleased because they no longer have to buy the extensive B-parts bag just to get 4 simple body posts. ** I wish this dream would come true one day. 🙂
  5. I can't... https://www.lindinger.at/en/CARS-BOATS/MODELS/Onroad-Drift-Cars/TAMIYA-XV-02RS-Pro-Chassis-1-10-kit/9796225 This will be my on-road bashing/racer with probably a stock 13.5 T BL motor.
  6. has any one tried the 39mm Drive Shafts (Tamiya part number #53505 or OP-505) instead of the 37mm that are originally supplied with the kit? (found this mod on a Japanize youtube chanel, from what I "can" understand these 2mm allows the shaft to remain in place even at full extension of the suspension)
  7. Having been a long time fan of the xv-01 the xv-02 was always going to be a must have. It took some time to obtain all the “unnecessary” but obligatory options, but finally I think I’ve got it mostly together so we can get on with the build. I’ll be comparing notes with the xv01 and at the end will put both cars over my 4 corner scales to get some weight bias data and as well as measuring up if this is indeed a upgrade or just a alternate option. Let’s get on with it!
  8. Hello everyone, this is my first post to this great forum. Vive Tamiya! I’m looking to build an XV-01 or XV-02 chassis. TBH, I don’t have a suitable off-road location close at hand to visit regularly enough. So it’s tarmac for me. Even though the XV-01 is reputed to edge out the XV-02 in tarmac handling excitement and really tempts me, it’s the growing plentifulness and better pricing of parts for the XV-02 that is hard to ignore. I see the new XV-02RS PRO variant is available. It’s priced lower than the original XV-02 and yet…it seems to be a step up with the inclusion of more upgraded parts??? Am I reading that right? Is it better equipped than the original?
  9. WRC / RALLY Builds thread A dedicated thread for all things rally / hillclimb - Motorsport inspired builds that are not on a permanent track. I’ll start off with the environment context that made me want to start. Project Start: 2021/01 Tamiya TRF417X - 42205 Ambitions - Full LED lighting & make a rally chassis! Welcome to Sweden!
