jonny-

If you want to make your transmission free and more efficent, buy some Boca Bearings secret weapons. Then coat the tranny gears w/ white lightning. You can find this lube in your local bike shop. It works great on my bike chains andworks well for me on the gear in my tranny too. hope this helps. My tao3r trf is still running strong, with the correct gear w/ the correct motor, the ta03 can keep up with some of the best.

Default Replacement parts

My LHS does not carry a lot of Tamiya replacement parts. I am looking to rebuild my Super Low Friction shocks (Aluminum Bodies), but I am unable to find a rebuild kit. I would like to replace the red O-rings and the Oil Seal (shock bladder). Is there other manufactures O-rings and Oil Seals I could use? Maybe HPI? Suggestions? Thanks..

Call Tamiya USA... they have all the replacement parts that you will ever need. it's 1-800-Tamiya-A. Call them... I got most of my replacement parts from them... since no hobby shop really stock that many parts at once.

But go to their website first to find the part number of the stuff you are looking for though... that will make your ordering easy and fast

Default Replacement Parts

TRF-Thanks for the info. I would really like to support my LHS but unfortunately they only carry very little parts for Tamiya cars, that's why I wanted to know if other manufacture's parts might work with what I have. Well looks like I'll be giving Tamiya a call. Thanks again.

Heeeeellloooo TA03 owners!!

Thinking of reviving my TA03R's. Currently running nitro but thinking of reviving one of my TA03's. A dual motor conversion should be fun to do. Let me know what you guys think and a good ESC for around $100. (Super Rooster? Can handle dual 11T's?)

err..dual 11turns w/ a super rooster isn't a good idea. You should look into the tekin 420 or a LRP Pro Reverse. Your need to use a lower gear ratio to take advantage of the dual motors.

aw, then why have twin 11turns if your not going to wire it in series? Hehehe. Go with the tekin or lrp, they will fair much better that the super rooster. And the lrps are around 120, w/ the reverse i think im not sure, and the tekin is around 120 also.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the input!

Didn't think the Super Rooster can handle such a load anyways. Parallel wiring, yeah....but I want to do in series.

Reason chose TA03 was easy dual motor layout and the car and diffs are literally bulletproof. Will also look for my old RCCA mag with the dual motor TA03 to see what else I should do with it.
