Questions??

Will either of these Lipos fit without needing to grind anything down?
If not, what batteries fit or what do I need to grind down to make these fit?

I'm trying to find a lipo that will work off of hobbypartz.

http://www.hobbypartz.com/77p-sl4000...-hardcase.html

http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-30c-40...-hardcase.html

How can I tell if a LiPo will fit?

Any advice helps,
thanks

Zac

Don't know about the first one, but the GensAce is probably exactly the same as this one, but with different connectors. I can tell you that THAT battery will not fit without chassis grinding.

These batteries do fit without grinding the chassis, all you need to do is put the battery in at a slight angle (the inside edge of the battery next to the belt drive will be slightly lower then the outside edge of the battery) then you adjust the battery bar holder posts by unscrewing them to make them higher to get the correct height to hold the battery down.

just grind the chassis. it is pretty easy using a dremel. if you grind the chassis then you don't have to worry about non rounded lipo packs and all will be good.

Thanks guys. I will grind the chasis down.

Another question, I'm thinking about getting a VTA set up for this. What size body do I need?

And how do I tell what size tires to use?

Looking on this list, there's a bunch, but I havn't really started searching yet. http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

First the tires thing...

Quote:
The only tires allowed are HPI tire part #4793 front and #4797 rear, using stock tire inserts provided with tire and any HPI Vintage wheels designed to fit these tires. All other tires and/or part numbers are illegal. Five or Eight spoke wheels available in various colors. 0mm offset front wheels and 6mm offset rear wheels are intended for 26mm width fronts and 31mm width rear tires.

Grinding of tire tread is NOT permitted. Sanding of mold seam to remove seam is allowed. HPI Vintage Slicks and HPI Vintage Performance Tires are not allowed. Tire traction compounds are at the discretion of the track. No other altering, changing or softening of the tire is allowed. No "double stuffing" of foam inserts allowed—only single stock vintage tire inserts are allowed.
as per the rules...

As for the body, most of the fast guys are really only using 3 different bodies...

HPI
7494 - 1968 Chevrolet Camaro

Pegasus Hobbies:
PGH4003 - 1970 Mustang

Protoform:
#1526 - J71

They should all fit. I have the HPI 68' Camaro mounted to my TA-05 ver.II R using the exotech chassis.

J71 body fits well on the TA05 with Exotek chassis, handles very well also. I run 4mm hex hubs with 2mm spacers all round.

Well i finally had a chance to get my TA05v2 running. I got it off Ebay RTR but the included transmitter or receiver had issues. So I replaced them with a FS-GT3 from hobbypartz and installed a tacon 3930KV & MM from my slash.

I will be mostly parking lot and street bashing. The car came with a 70t spur and 20t pinion. I think they are the stock Tamiya kit parts so they are the special metric pitch. I will be ordering replacement spur and pinion gears. What FDR should i be starting off with?

I will also be replacing the stock wheels and tires. A while ago I read that the HPI X pattern tires were a great bashing tire. Is that a good tire for my purpose? And i was reading the manual and it states that not to install 26mm wheels, what size fit this kit?

I hope to upload some pictures soon.

the 26mm wheels will be fine. you can use 24 or 26mm. the hpi xpatterns are fine. the belted ones have less traction but last longer. the non belted ones are better but wear out faster. u'll need the 26mm rims for the xpatterns.

Can someone explain how to read the suspension mounts? Broke my rear one today and cant seem to find the plastic replacements so looking at which one of the aluminum ones to get.

And one more thing what kind of FDR are you looking to get running 17.5 blinky? Thanks

For reference
