I doubt it will be competitive. Even my TA03R is setup for RGT right now and I don't think I have a chance. I'll be running it for fun though.

I miss my David Jun 03F but I still have my 03R-S TRF car. I might never run it but its still nice to have just incase.

I converted my WRC Corolla into RWD. All I did was remove the drive cups and dog bones from the front. It's much more fun to drive now but more difficult because the rear end slides very easily especially with a low turn modified motor.

The TA03 is very special because it took Tamiya to the top of professional level competition. It has a true racing heritage.

its the same part... tamiya has this annoying habit of labeling parts differently in the manual and on the packets... so any original part gets labeled SP??? instead of the original 50???...

So your SP604 IS 50604

Thanks for the help! I hope to enjoy this car. Mainly for my wife to use on race night I figure if she likes it I can get more track time

Well I'm still enjoying my TA03 and plan on building another with this GPM graphite chassis. I might actually hop-up everything with GPM parts.

Is anyone out there running the 03 in any on road racing ? I have 3 of these but have never run them. I'm curious how it performs against more modern chassis. It might do well in Vintage Trans Am.

ebay is usually your best source. If you got a pic of it, I can tell you what chassis it is. The TA03R had the motor just in front of the rear axles, and the TA03F had the motor in front of the front axles.
