Tamiya DT02 DT03 3 Degree Toe In Rear Uprights

Recommended Posts

Hope the group mods don't mind me posting this, but after testing by me and a racer i know have decided I am confident enough in my DT02/3 3 deg toe in uprights to offer them for sale. 

I have opened a Shapeways store called CTE RC (https://www.shapeways.com/shops/cotic-rc) and have put them on there with a few of my other designs. There are fitting instructions on the part links on the store.

No one else makes toe in uprights for these chassis which is why i did them. Hopefully some of you might find them useful, or fun, or just a nice colour (There are about 10 colour options).

Here's a pic of Andy's cool DT02 and DT03 race cars and my DT03 truggy with them installed.

CTE RC 3 deg toe in rear uprights for Tamiya DT02 and DT03 chassis. Now on my Shapeways store CTE RC2018-04-21_06-49-0320180307_18063020180307_175417

There is a full installation and rundown over on by DT03 Build log 

The improvements I wanted was to reduce the size and make the uprights dedicated to the metal driveshafts. The kit uprights are bulky and bind on the wishbones. As you can see in this comparison, the new uprights allow about 10mm more suspension travel, which gives more roll capacity and more grip.

No one else makes toe in uprights for these chassis which is why i did them. If you race you will find these a big step forward from the kit version. Andy (my tame racer) reports more rear end grip and stability and the ability to get on the throttle earlier out of corners. He was able to dial in more front end grip because the rear was better. Also reported it had a bigger impact on performance in the DT03 on astro than the DT02.

Hopefully some of you might find them useful, or fun, or just a nice colour (There are about 10 colour options).

If you would like to order they are available as individual left and right items.
