Comprehensive List of All TA01, TA02 and DF01 Hop Ups and Other Option Parts

Recommended Posts

After spending a long time digging through threads, trying to find a comprehensive list of all the period Hop-Ups for the DF01/TA01 platform and its descendants, I realized there were none. So I decided to make my own. I used futureworks' list as a base and expanded it from there.  It's still in progress, but its sorted by manufacturer, and I'm trying to get a link for an image of each hop up, preferably in original packaging for each item. I have used the exact terminology that Tamiya used for naming each Hop-Up. I hope this is helpful for people who want to make a "checklist" of sorts for their cars, or for others like me, who just wanted to see what was out there for this chassis. Please let me know if you have any additions or suggestions, or if you have any corrections.

Great list, must have taken a far bit of time.

I'm lucky enough to have a hopped up TA02 but mine has some more hop ups(Tamiya)







Last 3 for the F.R.P Chassis set and F.R.P Damper stays.


There are also the pink versions of the kingpin(49101) and servo stays(49096)

Plus the SILVER & PINK TA03 damper set (49100)

TA03 Super Low Friction Damper set (53280)

53209 Shaped Tyre Inserts

53216 Wide Shaped Tyre Inserts


Plus all the Hop Up tyres

Great list!

I will have a look through my aftermarket hop ups at home. I should still have all the cards somewhere to find the partnumbers.

There's a company in China that does anodised alloy parts but they're a bit iffy. I bought a blue prop shaft which was a poor fit and ended up having to modify the gear boxes with a dremel so it could spin freely without the joints rubbing. Didn't mind too much because at the time it was just a basher for the street. I ended up selling the car on ebay as a complete replica shelf queen ta02 racing special full of hop up parts...
