The first touring car I chassis I ever raced at club level was a plastic chassis TA03F, which a mate gave me after he'd bashed it around a car park for weeks. Even at my first meeting at the small indoor club with the car I realised that I'd 'bought a knife to a gun fight'. The Yokomo YR4's that most of the other drivers were using at the time were lapping me more times than I care to remember. To be fair it wasn't just that the car was outclassed, I was rubbish as well. I soldiered on with the TA03 for a couple more months until I bought an HPI Pro2 chassis off another club member, it was a great car. The TA03 was sold or traded at some point in the past and I made a conscious effort to forget all about the experience of trying to race one.
Fast forward a couple of decades and I spotted this Pro model for sale and I thought I'd like to try racing an TA03 at this years Iconic Cup meetings. A few button presses later and this much hopped up car was mine. All it needs is a clean up and some electronics installed.
What are you experiences of running a TA03? Am I being too harsh about its' abilities?
