Default TA03R TRF VS. TA03R-S TRF

performance wise which car perform better the R TRF or the RS TRF???

Also have any of you had the NIssan R390GT1 body from Tamiya before? Does it only fit the TA03 R chassis?

hey guys,

has anyone tried the new RDLogics tires yet? They seem to be worth the money since they are solid tires (well at least the SL series are).

I've heard that the RS TRF is a bit more nimble, and handles quicker. I myself have the R TRF and am very pleased with its performance.

porkybmx,

Is it possible for you to post the pic of your R TRF??? I counldn't find a good pic of R TRF to see how everything is put together.

if possible can you take pics from the top and from the side without the wheel?

Thanks

Default shock oil

i wouldn't do that because motor oil will want to deform the rubber pieces in the shock. stick with the silicone shock oil, they're design for it and it's cheap.

My friend is coming over with his digital camera tomorrow, so I certainly will take photos of all my cars, including my corally. My Ta03R TRF is very different from stock. I made a custom inline battery and bell crank steering. So the car is wayyy different from stock, I could take a picture of the box too, it has a pretty good detailed picture of the lay out of the chassis.

The difference between the 03F and 03R is handling. I only can speak about the 03F. The car is very easy to drive. If it has a torque splitter or what we call a one way it's a very aggressive car in the corners

OK GUYS,
i hear that the tao3f is no longer competitive because the drive train is too inefficient. what are the little drive train tricks to free it up? i have tao3f pro that came out just b4 the dj edition. plastic shock bodies, bearings, etc. what is a good pinion gear to start with? i'll be using a stock motor on a tight carpet track.
