Out of the gate I updated to the aluminum suspension blocks and spool. The rear gear box will be interesting.

Just lovely. Love the clean build and can't wait to read your feedback !

Does anyone know if the front spool made by Tamiya can be used in the rear? I'm a drifter and I preffer a locked rear diff. Or should I just use heavy oil?

Do you even know how the TA06 looks like??? And how it's configuration???
There's always the VDF of TA05 and TB03 for those drifter's.
TA06 is so well purpose built for TC wonder why someone would even think of using it to drift?

ball diff option, I find it ironic at this time of gear diff craze that they would offer ball diff as an option.

I'm in the process of building and found that my Novak Ballistic motor would not fit due to the 90 degree tabs... I snipped part of the tabs off and dremeled a small portion of the upper plastic brace from the chassis to get it to fit...

Anyone else encounter this, or did I just do something wrong It wouldn't be the first time...

Not bagging on it, just trying to learn.
Innovative design, Tamiya = grandfather of r/c cars, it's the only company that is designing and producing newer releases on monthly/quarterly basis. It is also the only company that offers wide variety of r/c car models to all levels of hobbyists.

Are there any other kits around $209 that can let me change pulleys for a countersteer setup? If so why don't you name some?

Last time I checked the Gold VDF was twice the price? And the TB03 was shaft drive so you can't countersteer it.

So does anybody know if the front spool can be used in the rear or should I use thick oil?

looks like an FF03 specific spool may work in the rear... if none are available, heavier oil in the rear... front and rear diffs are different.. front is more conventional to Touring Cars, Rear is a GearBox type diff..

I don't think there is a spool you can use for the rear unless you do some modifications. VDF is pretty darn expensive, street is over $400. Shaft driven TB03 is only so-so. The drift version of TB03 doesn't have anything special, just bunch of cosmetic parts to enhance realism.

Anybody got any driving reports yet ? I'm curious if the 06 will run well on a setup similar to the TM E4 since they share a very similar chassis and driveline layout. Typically the E4 runs very well with soft springs, lighter shock fluid and anti roll bars.
Also, am i correct that only batteries with leads can be used rather than banana plugs directly to the battery? I don't see any access to the topside of the battery when it's installed in the chassis.
