I am not sure why Tamiya didn't make it this way from the start or at least make it a reversible option.

maybe, but it is more for 200mm 10th scale pan cars, the wheels are gonna be too big. There may be other DB9 shells that are ment for 190mm touring

I'm considering getting a tA06 (Pro?) for a new 10.5 class. Temperatures here are around 45'ish degrees celcius. And the track is pretty complex.

Would anyone recommend the TA06 for someone looking to spend $400 excluding radio gear and servo? Or should I just fix up my TA05? Or look into a different car?

Thanks!

being as how I follow GT3, World GT, american Lemans and pretty much every race out there,(and Aston martin WAS "my" team until Ferrari re-entered)I have hunted DB9R bodies.... That one will not fit. It is made for pan cars.

This is the only "nice" one. It is from blade racing and genkidoridori.com is the only company that caries it(that I have found)



the wing is a yokomo plastic type. you may want to get a lexan one from HPI or Tamiya...

So... the tamiya cheapo-Bearings crapped out on me the other day... They were stainless/stainless. the deal with the ceramics fell through way back when I got the car so I am in the market for bearings and have been for the past week or so. I want ceramic. Thats pretty much it...

Acer carries a kit, but there are mixed reviews about acer. Boca is one i am considering also, but their "orange seal" is $224 and they are not even including every bearing I need. I am considering the second step down-being as how I dont need abec7 full race I know MR33 is sponsored by ABEC35 but has anyone else started using them?

anyone have a bearing kit reccomendation?

Sweet. I hope you enjoy it. The transaction was very smooth and I appreciate the business. I will send you + feedback here also. If you can do the same, I would appreciate it.

Holy cow that was fast shipping! The arms fit excellent! They're a little in the heavy side at 8.2 grams, the tamiya alum ones are at 5.4 oz. The 3 grams used will be compensated by the relocation itself. Very nice product.

Default 17.5 blinky

Hey guys. I've been reading thru this and so far it's been helping me. I just received my r10 pro and orion 17.5. Do you guys have any recomendations for gearing. It's on stock gearing but hopefully my 21 turn pinion comes in really soon. Also where can I purchase the spur gear for the 06? I've looked around and its just all 64 and 48 pitch spurs. Thanks and keep the great reviews and tips.
