The TA02 hubs had 2 deg of castor? Nice ride all the way around!

Are the red belts still available?

i think yes, i've never had c-hubs from TA02's. i was a late bloomer in collection 03's. i started with 2 tt01's and progressed to ta05s ... sold those of and got hooked to ta03's, of the 8 i had i'm now down to 2 tubs. into HB cyclones now. hehe but still looking out for new parts to rebuild my 03's.

i guess i was just lucky to get those red belts (nip). there where several sold through ebay from a dealer in SG a few months back. i dont see anyone selling it now. actually even the aramid black belts are hard to get, our lhs dont have those in stock anymore.

Very nice looking 03. These are one of my favorite cars from Tamiya. I remember winning are TCS race in 1996 in GT with the David Jun version 03 I bought and was even better as David Jun ran GT1 and I lapped him at the time. I remember back then I ran a Lightspeed 10 turn with the black Sanyo 1700 SCR packs. The thing back then was a missle. I had to cut the comm every run as the brushes where purple and the comm was black every run but damn it was fast. What a great time that was.

The one I currently have I was 2nd in GT2 with my TA03R-S TRF that I have. I just didn't have enough out of the corners but the car worked perfectly for me. In the end I ended up pulling along side the guy to miss the win by less that 1/2 second. Many laps I would tap the rear of his car down the straight like I was drafting and at the last second pull out to pass and would get beside him but just not enough to make it stick cleanly. I could of easily took him out if I needed to win that badly. I had the only 03 in the field of TB-02's and TA04's. Another great TCS race in I think 1999 or 2001.

Have to get some pics of my car.

i used all my 03's for drifting. try these settings ...

1. buy TRF shock dampers (the adjustable ones), but swap the stock cva damper shaft with the TRF for added height. use soft (red) in the front and medium (yellow) rear. use the 3 hole pistons and for shock oil, 20wt or lower is good.

2. motor - get 19T or lower. 17T brushed motor is good enough. A BL is best since the TA03 loves torque in drifting, 8.5T or 7.5T should be the limit. anything faster is overkill.

for your TZ, try different pinions ... if motor gets too hot to touch within a few laps, gear down. if battery gets hot, gear up. try and get a feel of the heat the esc, motor and battery generates ... you should run cool so that these items last longer.

3. lock the rear diff and get a ball diff for the front and set it tight. a torque splitter is optional (not all drivers use it), it acts like a center one-way. if your using BL motors, you might want to consider locking both differentials.

4. uses Pro Gears (beige in color). pinion will depend on motor type and speeds. check the manufacturer rating for these ... specially if you plan to use BL.

5. just use stock camber and toe for drift tires. use Tamiya Driftech tires on asphalt, try HPI T-Drifts or HDPE tires too. i find ABS too slippery, but i'm not saying you shoudnt try them. different tires work best on certain tracks, its best to be able to change them to gain additional traction to get the angles good.

good luck ... hth!

I just revived both of my TA03s. Not much parts available anymore. What other TAMIYA or other bodies still available that will fit on the TA03F-S (short wheelbase) chassis?

not that i know of. i have a ta03rs (short-wide) and there no bodys that will fit besides the PIAA porsche.

the reguler ta03f and the ta03's use any type body ofcourse.

but the question is... what 1:1scale car is short and wide with a rear/mid mounted engine car is there?

the short-wide 03's are pretty limited

When the TA03F-S kit first came out, the only TAMIYA bodies that were available were the Corolla WRC and the Peugeot 206 WRC. It was pretty limited with bodies to begin with. I guess the TA03R-S is the same story with the PIAA Porsche 911 and Porsche 911 GT1.
