Hello There! (Plus my project)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here. This is the project I'm working on, it's a Blitzer Beetle body mounted on a rally set up TT-02r chassis.

The front body mount is a modified Blitzer Beetle mount, I cut out the centre section so I could bolt it to the uprights. I have the chassis set to increased ride height & short wheelbase plus I've shortened the front track by replacing the front ~9mm hexes with 4mm hexes and fairly obviously I've fitted rally wheels/tyres. 

It has a Tamiya 10.5t brushless motor & a Team Powers XPS sport programmable ESC.

There's still loads to be done - 

Replace shocks, not that I find much wrong with the TT-02r oil filled shocks but I want alloy shocks. 

Replace battery with LiPo.

Tidy up body mounts & bolts etc. 

Now, to paint or not to paint? I really don't know whether to leave it 'ratty' or paint the shell. Perhaps white? With rally livery? 

Anyway, I've rambled on long enough. Here's a photo of it next to my Kyosho (I was fitting new tyres to) for scale. :)

I think it looks pretty good, any ideas, thoughts, opinions would be most welcome.

Try to install the front bumper #9335741 from TT02T and adapt the rear #9000877 from TT01

Welcome aboard.  The rally bug looks good.  I had something similar using a shortened TL01, although I didn't use it much and the chassis got used for something else.

Don't worry about replacing the plastic oil shocks unless you're going to spend good money on good quality shocks.  Cheap ebay shocks are not worth the packaging they arrive in.

I agree, I have the plastic oil shocks on my df02 in the front, and they work just as they should.

 

on a nitro car, we broke the shocks and my buddy ordered cheap adjustable china shocks (they are friction not oil) have the adjustable spacer or whats its called, with to hard springs, waste of 15$.

 

few days ago I orderd yeah racing shocks, for 40$, and will know more.

 

 

the only thing I would,do is... cut the edges below the lower arms, and install instead of 55mm shocks, 65mm shocks.

 

car will be higher :)

 

if interested look up on the net tt01 rally conversion, did this with mine while I had it, made it perfect to drive, leaning in to corners and all. :)
