Default TMYJOY TA03F

Well I don't own a rc car y believe since I was 21 now 31 a quick look to ebay change all that I found a TA03F RTR was a Audi A4STW of course bath tub chassis . I charge the battery and tested too slow. Last rc car that I drive was a Tamiya M03 mini cooper but is the mini was slow The TA03f is worse . Ok time to take a look to the internet and read about it and I find this forum. First thing I want to replace was the bath tub chassis for that sexy looking FRP chassis hard to find but my Friend IROCKFLIFLOPS don't hesitate to sell my a new spare of the lower chassis later on I find a new top part from ebay and a couple more hop ups.....

Looks like somebody has the RC bug again! She's looking good TMYjoy. Are you still running the Audi body?

mate any shell will look better than seeing all the guts underneath.
how can a shell look ugly? give it a bit of work, like a real car, bit of body filler,
bit of sandy sandy, a screw here and some glue there.
and youve got urself a racer, instead of just another shelf queen.

CC-01 and TA-02 will fit. Stay away from the GPM alloy universals though unless you're putting them in the rear.

According to the kids tamiya club it's 175teeth and 525mm long x 4mm wide.

http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/inde...c=70807&page=6

but you should buy from irockflipflops, he has the tub, belt, and brace for the same price I paid for just a new belt (aftermarket belt...). If I had seen this thread, I'd've bought them from him. PM me if you have questions.

I'm building a TA03R-S (from a TA03R) for the re-released Lancia 037 Rally. I'm also considering copying the shell in fiberglass (maybe lexan too). Because: Racecar!

That's the same reason I ended up with a TA03R-S, for the Lancia 037 body. I ended up buying 2 Lancia 037 abs and 2 911 GT2 Taisan bodies to use with this chassis. A lexan version would be fantastic..

one roll over and that painted ABS is not going to look so nice

The horror! I've dreamed of having this as a 1/10th car for years... don't want dreams to become nightmares. I refuse to race it (or build it for that matter) until I have successfully copied the shell/decals/bits. Plus when i'm drunk with copying power I'll make a stradale 037 shell

By then I'll have taken some touring car, removed the fwd portion (RWD rocks), and shortened the decks :-)

Did you use the F103 tie rods or did you fit the aluminium steering arms on the car?

That's how it is for us vets. Subscribe to the thread.

I just sold off my Sprint 2 so i could focus on my F103/TA03RS/Cup Racer.

So what's the word on brushless sensored motors for the TA03 (RS config)?

i'm probably just going to 'use up' the silvercan w/my old HPI brushed esc first... but still i want to know.
