Tamiya touring car take over…

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I am new to this forum and this is my first post… 

Over a decade ago I was racing the Tamiya M03 at my local club before moving on to race TRF416 in the 13.5 touring car class.. unfortunately the M-chassis class faded away to nothing…

Fast forward to 2021 and I reignited my love of RC and set up Popalong RC. Our goal was to get more people involved in racing and encourage new blood into the hobby. Tamiya racing has become the latest focus for us. After an amazing weekend racing my old M03 at the iconic cup, in the summer, we were hooked again.

Over the last month or so we have got into racing the TT01E and we are really impressed with the performance. We created some videos on our YouTube channel of us racing and what started out as 2 TT01’s about 6 weeks ago has grown to over 15 Tamiya racers running a mix of TT01 TT02 and m chassis cars. We have another 5 drivers looking to join in 2022

Super excited to be a part of the Tamiya RC community… We are planning to make some beginner guides for new members at the club and we spend a lot of time help people with car set up… 

we are having to slow our cars down in order to bridge the gap to the beginners but for us it is about close competitive racing not crazy fast speed .

Our local clubs are now closed for Xmas so looking forward to an amazing 2022.

Currently running:

TT01E subaru 

torque tuned motor 

upgrades shocks 

sweep 28 tyres 

58/23 gearing 

etronix servo

Actually one of the best handling cars I’ve ever driven.

Welcome aboard :) I'm an Iconic Cup racer too, did a little bit of M-chassis and FWD this year.  My M03 was the Civic with the Frog livery, hopefully I didn't crash into you too much.

The club sounds great, RC racing seems to be doing pretty well this year, good luck for 2022 :)

Do you have a website or Facebook page for your club? I’ve just assembled a TT02 and was thinking about trying out some racing, I’m a complete novice. I’m in Aylesbury so not far away. Thanks
