I just acquired a used Tamiya TA02 off-road stadium truck with the BFGoodrich replica Mud-Terrain tires for free and I would like to restore it...
Overall seems in good shape, diffs feel nice and smooth, drivetrain spins very freely, etc.
However the previous owner replaced the rear shocks with a set of ti-rods for some unknown reason, I'm having trouble determining what shocks to buy to replace them?
Towers listing of replacement parts for the trucks seems odd, the shocks are listed as "optional" and appear to be on-road shocks, which leads me to believe they are an optional part to convert the trucks to sedans...so not what I'm looking for.
Any ideas? Or how about if any of you kind souls that browse this forum own one of these stadium trucks could you measure your rear shocks for me?
Also, Tower does not carry the F-150 body anymore, only the S10. Does anyone know where I can purchase an F-150? I already checked eBay and there arent any listed right now...
