But mind you the TA05 version does NOT have LED buckets or lighting options which is a real bummer. I considered ordering the TT01 one with the lights before I came across the Kyosho 575.

Just finished the car. Body tomorrow if I find the time. I have some special wheels as well. Once the 575 body comes I'll make the gallardo body a street body.

Running an EZRUN 35a ESC with a 4300kv motor. Im going to want to upgrade. Whats the maximum you guys would recommend on 2s for street duty?

Go back to page 100 post #1500 and check VooDooPH's setup for the Exotek chassis. Last week I was looking for a setup too for that chassis and VooDooPH was kind enough to share his. I tried the setup and it worked OK but I really like the way car drives with the tub chassis so I'm going to change it back.

I agree with you, I tried the Exotec chassis and the tub chassis the lap times were identical and I couldn't feel too much difference.

Finally done with my TA05v2 Gallardo,

Some bodies are too pretty too drill holes in...

I used balsa wood because it is light, and keep cutting body posts until I have the ride height I want. Then drill the balsa wood. This will act as base for he velcro mount. Use a rotary sander to sand down the body posts for a flat surface.




Apply hook and loop velco, make sure it is secure.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/__OT3YJ9o9Ao/TQ...0/IMG_1580.JPG



All done


Done product. No body posts for a clean look. The velcro is so strong you can pick the car up by it.






Got a 60a 6000kv system coming for this sucker this week. Also HPI X-Patterns. Hope you guys enjoy. Body posts are a pain in the ass. This requires no body pins being lost, and is strong as hell. All you have to do is align the body with the wheels/chassis when you remount it.

I like the chassis and it was OK but the rear end of the car was a little too loose for my liking. I had plenty of help from the local sponsored guys and I tried many different setups it just didn't feel right for me.

Default Applying Large Stickers on Tamiya Body

Any secrets on applying large Tamiya stickers? It's so hard to pull off if it's not align properly, I actually tore a large piece trying to pull off to realign.

Can you put soapy water underneath so it doesn't stick right away, hopefully giving a little time to move the sticker to the property position? Any hints out there? Thanks.

Been there done that. Worst money I've spent in a long time.

Wanna know how to make them work? Wrap them in 'female' velcro', remove the swiveling pivot balls and mounts and put the male velcro on the body. Now I can pick it up by the body and it never moves

Sorry to say but those are some of the worst products I've bought in RC ever. Only good for shelf queens.

I gave up on the windows on the Gallardo. The decals are not not properly shaped no matter what you do. You end up having to trim and overlap. Not to mention the bubbles.

I said screw it, cut off the windshield, left the wipers, and hand painted the windows.

Yes! A couple drops of dishwashing soap should do the trick.

I get frustrated putting the stickers on too. Then I see the prepainted bodies and wonder, "how the heck did they do that?"
