What's the dimension of the battery compartment for the Exotek chassis? Just want to make sure that my batteries can fit. Thanks.

MikeR is best to answer that question. But the chassis has an adjustable battery compartment. The only one I doubt are saddle packs.

I changed my electronics around to run saddle packs with the Exotek chassis

Yes, I had to move the servo forward as much as possible to install the saddle pack.

yes, the kawada center belt was too tight now that the chassis is rigid. It was ok when I had the standard chassis, but that was because of the flex. The front belt was ok so I left it. Sucks because I liked the Kawada since it is thinner, making it more flexible.

I ran with mine a few times and it loosened the 1 or so mm it needed.

I've been following this thread thru and read all the post on how racers have spent time and money to improve their TA06s. Several have attempted to convert it to a carbon fiber double decker and spent as much also.
Tamiya introduced this car as a lower cost alternative to the double deck double the money wonder cars.

Stichy at Speedtech appears to have gotten the true spirit of this alternative. He competed with a stock out of the box car and placed second in the Bmain against a field of double deck super cars on it's maiden outing!

So with this in mind I went down to purchase a TA06 but it is currently sold out locally. I guess if we all had patience Tamiya would release a TRF version and I would get my tub version. But in our quest for the fastest car, the word patience is laughable!

If you are looking to buy, I can sell you my "stocker" it's about 90 % complete. Just missing shocks, and a few other parts. It will have doffs, belts, plus lotsa aluminum.

Hi guys,

I have an issue with my diff's pinions (original ref : 51460) : They are so much used that the diff is not working.

Do you know if there is an option to replace them by harder plastic or metal ?

I am also asking me if I don't want to replace the complete diff by a more durable one from someone else than Tam'... Have you got some idea ?

Thanks for your help...

Thank you...
I will look at Spec R product for TA06 diff...

Perhaps these pinions are able to go in the standard TA06 houses.

Thanks again...

The spec r is a complete diff. No need for frankensteining a diff....
