Has anyone that has built the TA06 gear diff had trouble with the diff case screws? The hex socket does not seem to be 1.5mm in size yet isn't 1mm nor 1.3mm. After such a great start to a good looking diff the screws are a massive let down.

I had the same question, but they are 1.5mm hex.

Hey there. Does anyone know if the carbon lower deck from the 84314 chassis upgrade kit can be purchased on its own? Mine is warped and I need a new one badly

I don't think the upgrade parts are available seperately yet, however, you can get them from Tamiya by special order. I got the middle bulkheads for example - Banzai hobbies ordered them for me.

I had the same issue with the gear diff screws. They are definately 1.5mm. After you get them for the first time they are ok, just be careful not to round them off. A good quality wrench will help if you're not already using one. Maybe try threading that half of the gear diff first before putting it all together.

I managed to get the 1.5 to grip and thankfully didn't round the screws off. Thanks for the replies as I was reluctant to try the 1.5 too much as a round off screw in the diff would not be fun

Hi torg, do you have a link on those gears of yours? Do you need any adapter to have them installed?

I didn't use an adapter, but I had to sand/dremel the gear cover case quite a bit to prevent the (now much bigger) pinion gear from rubbing. Also had to use different screws to mount the spur gear.

I think I used this combo:

HI all... i have a handling issue with my FF03 that i can't quite seem to solve. Have referred to a fair number of the posts here and attempted different strategies but am still at a loss... HELP!

My car has the FF03 Chassis Upgrade kit from Tamiya. Setup is as follows:
- Motor and electronics: Speed Passion Cirtix and 17.5 V3 Motor.
- FDR 3.14 Spur 58, Pinion 48 ( i drive on a long ass track here in malaysia)
- Springs: Ride Purple (F), Ride Green (R)
- Sway bars - Blue (F), Red (R)
- Sorex 40 with soft inserts all around (track temps are around 50 deg C avg)
- Ride Height 5mm (F), 5.5mm (R)
- Droop 5 (F), 4(R)
- Tamiya gear diff with 200,000 oil
- Scirocco body
- Toe 1 deg out (F), 2.5 deg in (R)
- Camber 2 deg all around

So the problem is.... I have lift off oversteer when entering corners off a long straight, even if i do get off the throttle early. This seems to be constant despite trying different tires on the car. Can't get away from it. The other thing that is puzzling is that i also have oversteer on power. When i feed the throttle in while exiting a corner, the car wants to pull itself deeper into the corner even though i'm a good 2/3rds way out of the turn, with the steerning almost straight. This is very apparent when there is a quick direction change i.e. in chicanes.

I have tried the following with no positive results:
- changing to different tires
- changing front and rear springs to make them softer
- changing the sway bars in front and removing the rears
- reducing steering EPA and dual rate


The only way i can tame the car now is to feed the throttle in very slowly - that works but it takes a toll on my laptimes so it's not a solution i can live with. I need to find mechanical grip!!!!

HELP!!!

Here is a short clip of my FF03 with upgradechassie and a Tamiya Peugeot 406 STW body. Running a Turnigy Trackstar 13,5 and a ORCA Vritra VX speedo with a fair amount of boost/turbo on it, Hitec 7775MG servo and Gens Ace batterys.

Try same front and rear sway bars or no sway bars, zero toe in the front, and same ride height front and rear or sag the rear slightly. Maybe .5 mm at most. I run mine like this without issue on dusty asphalt and Solaris hard tires with a firmer insert along with a Scirocco body.
I run with kit springs front and rear with front and rear yellow swaybars. My driving style likes the car a little looser (FF's plow too much), but it only comes around on you if you really want the rear end to as if you were going to drift the car.

Default FF03

Hi all,

Sorry if it's been covered before, searched but could not find much.

I bought a used FF03 Pro with 3Racing chassis and raced it for the first time yesterday in USGT (21.5t brushless) and it ran great the first 2 heats. My youngest son ran it in the main and he had a few hard hits and it quit moving (or moving very slowly when on the ground) tires seems to spin fine when it's on the pit stand, but just slipping on the ground.

I know it sound like something with the diff/tranny and I did see some oil stain/leak on the front tranny case.

My question is, what's the most worry-free diff/tranny setup for the FF03? I see ball diff options from 3Racing and gear diff options from SpecR (SPR028-GBDFF), as well as Tamiya (54471)?

Thanks,

-Rich
