Steevo,

sorry, can't answer that. Perhaps you'd like to scroll back for Psycho's, wyd's or rowdyrj's posts for that one.

You may want converting to 03R if you'll be running only on straight lines and drop all aluminium parts. Transferring the weigth backwards may improve your acceleration.

Thanks Mate,
I am thinking of just sliding in a 6 Double with a 18t Pinion and saying my prayers. I am using one of my stock chassis with no alloy at all and just adding ball diffs and full bearings etc to handle the load. It is all just an experiment and good fun as is the policy with the guys i race with. We keep the rules and restrictions to the limit and just have a lot of fun racing. And do we have some fun!!!

THe gear reduction in a 03 with .04 gears is 2.68 to 1 and the stock .04 spur is a 63 tooth. Not sure of the .06 gears.

I'm not sure I would run a 6 turn in a 03. They are awesome cars but not sure if the tranny could handle that type of rip from a 6 turn. I ran 10 turns in my 03 at when I ran my DJ at a TCS race. I guess if you just don't punch it from a dead stoop you might be fine. I guess all you can do it try it. Gears are cheap to replace if you do have a problem.

Good luck Let us know how it is.

I'm going to try my newly aquired 6 Turn Trinity in the car this weekend. I have 2 spare gear sets so if it goes a miss i don't mind too much. I would imagine that the biggest problem if it holds together will be keeping it in a straight line for the first 15metres or so. Any how will let you know how it goes

Got my blue aluminums second hand from a friend who bought it from HongKong. Try searching from a site named "rainbowten" or something.

Try www.asiatees.com for a few alloy parts to suit TA03 and others at good prices too.

I just thought i'd give the new Digital Camera a work out. I was going to go absolutely stupid on this car a few weeks ago and order up everything i could get my hands on but the numbers just didn't add up. By the time i was through i could have had a new TB Evo or similar. I have learn't to control the RC disease to some extent but having access to the internet does not help one bit. Luckily the Mrs reminds me every now and then of how much i put into my cars.

I hope the Battery mod works out. I did it because i make my own battery packs up and saddle packs with Deans Tabs are a snap to make. The sticks still fit as well with minimal movement.

Thanks guys. I modified my TA03F, but don't know did anyone of you do the same. I always wanted to post my R/C pics and my friends' R/C pics on net, but I don't have a camera ready. So but the time, I will let you guys see mine. By the way, how can a TA03F runs faster than like HPI Pro3? Any gears I could buy outside to upgrade it? In team of Gear Ratio, is TA03F faster than Pro3 and MR4?
