I need some Tamiya help.
Im not a racer and Im not looking for a high end race car.
There are no tracks that I can run on within 3 hrs of my place
But i do want a good car that I can run on ashphalt.
Can someone tell me if this will be a good car

Its a good car but a lot of your fun will depend on what motor you put in it.... the standard can that comes with it , will probably not excite you that much on an open parking lot.

Is it just for you , or you plan to race with mates ?

I am sure there are other cars , but your proposal is a good solid car. I only have Tamiya so cannot talk about others. My TA05 IFS has been very good to me in club racing (my 8 year old is also starting to race with a TA05 )

For good "bang for the buck" motor /esc look at Hobbywing / EZrun combos - you can pick up a good ESC and motor for around USD100.

no. you cannot use that. that is the axle for the 5x9 bearings. the Ver.II uses the "newer" 416 style suspension that has 5x10 bearings.

You really should just read this thread a bit more thoroughly. It's been discussed to bits. Answers are here already.

You assembled the diff wrongly. The screw with the thrust bearing and the other side with the lock nut and plastic hex shaped lock nut holder with spring must switch places. Look at the diff assembly very carefully. After you put the diff plates balls and outdrive together with the pulley, you're supposed to FLIP the whole thing. I think you missed that flipping. Look at the arrow very carefully.

The diff is too shallow and the bone won't fit deep enough in to it. I've double checked the assemble of the diff, it's installed in the car with the nut side facing the left. The turnbuckles are the correct lenght, the ball studs are in the correct holes on bulkhead and the axle holder. The right side seems too deep and the bone falls out. Any suggestions? Thanks

Is this a good car for vta or 17.5 touring class on asphalt ?

Im sure it is a stupid question. But I have been eyeballing this car for sometime and was just curious.

Is the car newbie friendly. Never had a kit before and just dying to try a Tamiya car.

Default Gear pinion for TCS

Hi guys,

Please give me your suggestions for the best (fast and stable) gear/pinion for the V2.

I will be running it with a silver can to race on the coming GT3 class at the Tamiya track in Aliso Viejo. My second race ever with a sedan 4wd

- My chassis is completely stock I tried to use the Tamiya set up that recommends 64 pitch 105/49 for a 17.5T motor

Will this be also the best choice for a Silver Can?

I appreciate your feedback

Cheers!
Marcos
