Gear diff transmission case for TRF201X and DN01

Recommended Posts

Second prototype of my TA06 gear diff transmission case the rear motor TRF201X and DN01. It uses all the kit parts but replaces the ball diff with the TA06 gear diff. 

Tamiya TRF201X gear diff transmission for rear motor buggies, by CTE RC on Shapeways

I got some spacings wrong on the left hand case due to using the wrong reference plane, but i have another version coming from Shapeways which will hopefully sort it. Even now it is tight, but fits with no modifications which is what i hoped. I'll put it on my CTE RC Shapeways store once i have completely sorted it. No more melty ball diffs!

As all your conversions, topwork! makes me want a DN01 now even more!:D

The last years, the Zahhak has grown on me and I´m regretting not bying a kit, when Tamico swapped them out for 169€...

Not to speak About the TRF201 sale by Tamiya USA last year...

Thanks. It will be a couple of weks until the final version arrives, but hopefully should be good to go after that.

Do you have a thread going that gets into the details of this?  I have both kits and am interested in this.  Thanks!

No, not really. I developed it because the kyosho gear diff in my RR-03RA kept leaking, but there's not really been much to report. Unlike my other transmission conversions dor the mid-motor Tamiya buggies, where they use various parts from other brands and my own design carbon parts, this is simply a like-for-like swap. You buy the transmission cases, and only thing you change is the diff.

Do you have a convenient list of part numbers for the gear diff that I can just bash in to Tamico or whatever?

TA06 gear diff,  part #54471,  and his cases,  and you are good to go.  At least that is what I am seeing!  Pretty cool if you ask me.

Admittedly,  I haven't even built my kits,  and I wasn't really looking forward to it because of the ball diffs,  especially after hearing about the seemingly fragile dn01.  I rebuilt the ball diff on a Madcap and wasn't a big fan.  I couldn't get it to a point where I liked it,  and sold it to someone who could handle it before I tore it up.

Time to order parts...

All parts are listed on the Shapeways product description, but you just need the diff really.
