and can you show a pic of the mod you made please? I dont have the car yet, so cannot picture what you mean.
There are two kits, the "pro" and the soon to be release "standard" kit that will come with a body, but no nice blue parts and no trf shocks.

Haha, no problem JWright. Will do. Need to get Timmie back into TCS racing. I'll be heading to my first one since 2007. Hey, what blinky esc you using for TCS? I need to pick up a cheap one. Wish they allowed Roar Spec, but oh well. I'm looking at the SpeedPassion one. Cirtix I'm thinking.

After finding out that the car doesn't have enough chassis rigidity, I sat down and looked at it, and did some ghetto mods.

For the front pulley holder, I used different methods for the two screws to hold that piece down. For the front side, I used a little longer screw and put a lock nut from underneath and for the rear side, I used a fairly long screw (20mm). This allowed me to torque the screws really tight to prevent the pulley holder from moving. This should do until someone makes an aluminum version.

The car is pretty flexible in its entirety, adding to the loosening of the center belt upon hard braking. The part that contributes the most to this flex is the point where the upper motor brace meets the top of the battery box. I got some thin card board(from the packaging of parts), and shoved it into the areas you see in the pic. I also closed up any spaces inside the battery compartment to make it a tight fit. I added some card board to the top of the battery, and to the front of it. This surprisingly made the chassis pretty stiff, and the belt doesn't get too loose even if I try to bow the chassis. I still have to test it, but it will have to do until the carbon chassis/parts are released.

Keep in mind, though, that I race on a sugar water track with sorex36 and 17.5 boosted. Hope this will help some people, and if you have better ideas, share them!

BTW, the DUO series motors do not fit unless you hack about 2mm of material from the upper left motor brace. The motor tabs rub big time.

Check your internal diff mesh. Possible that inside the diff one of the crown (big) gears isn't meshed right. Pull it apart and check that the teeth are all moving correctly. I'm not sure on the new tamiya gears, but have a close look at make sure you've not damaged the teeth. I've had this before and had to take the case apart and realign... teaches you quickly to make sure that the teeth are meshed properly before screwing the case down.

From the looks of that pic, it doesn't look like the Novak Ballistic or the Thunder Power or the new Reedy Sonic will fit either. The solder tabs are right where that upper left rear motor brace sits.

The new MD & LRP motors should fit, with their vertical tabs.

Nice. But the Murfdogg is not TCS legal. I personally don't care but many others do.

Heres the list according to the rules.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/tcs/rules.php

"Motor Rules: 17.5 motor technologies will be locked down to 4 manufactures to keep things simple for racers and the organizers alike.
A. Novak (item 3417) Pro Brushless Motor 17.5 (Yellow Ring)
B. Novak (item 3617) Ballistic Spec 17.5-yellow tab
C. LRP (item 50850) X-11 17.5 Stock Spec (Orange Ring)
D. LRP (item 50852) X-12 17.5 Stock spec
E. Tekin (item TT2251) Redline 17.5.
F. Speed Passion (item SPF17V2) Ultra Sportsman 17.5 V2."


So its just the LRP, Tekin and SP motors that will fit and be TCS legal.

yeah, it unfortunately seems like Tamiya developed the TA06 centered around their own BL motors. That upper brace needs to be redesigned, which will NOT happen. Hoping for an aftermarket alternative.
