hi all....i just found this thread.....lots of interesting stuff....read the whole thing last night....
i post on Tamiya Club but i figured i'd post a link here....
right now i'm using a TA03F-S and a TA03R with some hop ups for off-road rally use.
these are the two threads (way shorter than this one) where i have pics of the mods i made to increase ride height and clearance for proper off-road rally.
Tread 1...most of the pics ont he first page are broken links but i reposted them on the second page.
the first mod to the arms was done with the plastic arms. it ended up making hte chassis too complicated so i added GPM aluminium arms and modified those.
Thread 2....this is where i modified the aluminium GPM arms further to get more clearance. i also made modifications to the damper stays for strength and a few other small mods here and there.
in this thread there is also a detailed cleaning of a TB01 that had the Long Arm kit added for off-road rally.
and finally, a link to my show room with the pictures of each of the chassis before the final mods. the videos are there too. the TA03R is the one with the Tamiya Escort shell. the TA03F-S is the one with the Tamiya Peugeot 206 shell but painted in my favorite silver color.
oh and the Lancer and Celica are the TB01.
but i have some questions.....
1. what is TAOB? i see that in some of the pictures in this thread....is it a web site or a team?
2. does anyone here know if i can still get arms EXACTLY like these? these would be perfect for off road rally since the damper mount is on the same plane as the lower arm.
as soon as i'm done installing a new ESC in the R i'll post some pics of both of the chassis.
