Very clean looking chassis. I have a FF01 project following the same idea of using all available period Hop ups though I have not done it yet.



Great chassis, I loved my hopped up one back in the day.. you should take it to a track and give it a run



Lovely maxxed out TA01 - got to be happy with that !



Looks great

You should add alloy trf dampers, too and then it's a complete and very expensive beast

Very nice! It is testament to chassis has been around for over years now! Tamiya certainly made some profits from the original Manta Ray and the numerous variations that followed as buggies and tourers.

Thanks for all your kind comments guys, there really appreciated and make this project all the more worthwhile.
Its taken me over 3 years to source all the parts.
@ Aussie TF, i think this chassis may of been the most lucrative for Tamiya.
@ qatmix Run it.... Are you MAD
Thanks again to all whole have commented.



WOW !!!!

Thanks Beppe



Since you're not running it...has anyone else got experience with the torque splitter? How does it drive? I thought about building one myself, using a one-way bearing and modifivying the front idle gear. So, does it rock?
