Tamiya TT-02 SR

Recommended Posts

When's the new TT02 RS coming out? I know in 2020, but what month?   I'm about to buy a Mustang GT-4 TT-02, because I can't wait any longer. I may get it anyways, just because of that Mustang body shell and build up a police car from it. Speaking of which,  Who makes good 1/10th scale police light bars? Realistic and bright. 

 So I'll probably get the TT02 Mustang fo rnow.....just can't waith any longer and I need that Mustang body.

Are you not going to kick yourself for the sake for not just waiting a few months?

 I need another project and I want to do a Police car out of the Tamiya TT-02 Mustang gt-4 body. Of course that only comes with the standard chassis. I already got the lighting from mytrickrc. I could buy the body from Amazon and then wait for the SR, but I'm growing impatient.  I'm tempted to get the standard Mustang TT-02 and do a mild upgrade to it, in bearings and the optional spur gear set-up so I can make it a bit faster than stock. Make a nice police body, install light bar and lights then call it a day. I have a set of TL-01 shocks for it and a new Super stock BZ I have sitting here doing nothing. Not racing, just an occasional run at camp on the pavement just for fun, no heavy bashing.  Upgrading any more than that would be foolish. 

So I guess I'll just get the standard chassis.... I may get the SR if  in fact, like on road RC. 

All I know is that Mustang GT-4 body is absolutley gorgeous and would look great as a hot rod police car.

You can buy the Mustang body shell separately. Part number 51614.

I was thinking about that, but I just now went ahead and got the standard, Mustang GT-4 kit.  I'm not a racer, just an occasional fun run at the park and stuff, so why spend too much on a real expensive chassis. I did get the spur gear option and yeah racing motor mount, plus ball bearings. That is all I plan to upgrade on this car, to keep it cheap and I only wanted to be able to put in a faster motor/pinion for more than stock speed.  I already have a set of shocks I got for another car I was getting two years ago. Plan is to make a real nice, hot rod police car with it. The mustang body would be awesome to do so and I have a full police lighting kit coming from mytrickrc, as well. Paint will be black along with custom graphics to copy the sheriff patrol cars where I live.  

If I were to try racing and get into some serious on-road, I would get the more expensive options, but for me it's just fun and something to build, so why spend money where I don't really need it.  

A mildly upgraded, standard TT02, mustang cop car with blinking lights, is my goal.

 

Can't wait for everything to get here....I literally ordered a half hour ago.

Buy the type sr in a couple of months as well.

You will have itchy fingers for a new project by then

Probably not, I already got the standard Mustang GT-4.  If I were getting into racing at a club, I'd wait for it, but I am not, so for the money I will have as much fun with a mildly modified Standard car. My plan is to build a semi scale police car with a full array of lights and a siren. Would be fun at camp and such, giving the kids a smile as well as the adults.

HAHAH nice, brother!...

 

 I've spent 150.00 on the police lights already.....  roof bar, rear window traffic advisor, controller and headlights/tailights to flash, blue/red wigwams on the push bar, blue and red flashers in the fog light holes as well.  Also Mirror flashers, flashing tail lights, brake lights and backup lights, ally lights and take-downs, lmao.... Most likely side marker lights on the rear spoiler. The GT-4 has a high rise rear spoiler and it's gonna be one awesome police car.....oh and spot light, hahah.  

Right now I am learning on what I have to get and do, to make this happen.  Just figuring out the lights and how they can be controlled is the hard part....I never done anything more than simple on/off headlights, but they have such great electronics these days, it shouldn't be too awful hard.
