Just curious if there was a tensioner installed (how tight). I never used the one on my TA03F Pro, since it was better not used. It's also been stored for more than 10 years, so I hope it doesn't break.

Current upgrades I have on the TA03, center one way (front) and 1 ball diff (rear) any suggestions on where I should put these two (front or rear or none)?
the TA03 is a great drift chassis, you just need to learn how to tame it. here is a link to a forum where TA03 drift talk rules ...

http://driftercentral.com/forums/index.php?showforum=84

the torque splitter (acts like a center one-way or COW) should be installed in the front. its a driver preference how you setup your diffs, most drivers lock the rear and use the ball diff in front, i use locked front and rear, some find that ball diffs all around work best for them. i suggest trying all and see which suits you best.

Default Rally Subaru

My Subaru is based on a twin motor TA03F. I don't know that much about the beast,but I do know it's b***** fast! It had trouble on dirt tracks when I got it so I've lifted the body,trimmed the wheelarches and fitted Pajero tyres. I can get my fingers under it now.

Any current Protoform bodies fit the TA03? Thinking about hurting some feelings in 17.5 brushless. Although the drivetrain (gears) may be a bit slower than the belt cars. David Jun chassis/front motor.

I feel like if I beat anyone I would be doing something with a 12 year old chassis.
