I just picked up a brand NIB, still factory sealed and wrappped, TAO4-TRF. Is this a decent kit? Not sure if I want to keep it as it is, assemble it or just sell it!

Here is what you d, or suggest that you do.

Use the other post to stiffen up the chassis, you may hae to drill a whole under the chassis, don't worry, there are marks under the chassis as a guide. You will notice the difference in handling if you do this.
Look:http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...postid=1067404

But also ask or refer to your TCS rules, it differs from one region to another.
Peace!!

that wouldn't be legal in the US TCS. That would be considered to be re-engineering the chassis. Also falls under rule #17

The prices, I'm sure they vary for LHS to LHS. On average, prices start around $100-$230. The "S" being the cheapest to "TRF" being the most expensive, because of all the hop ups includes on the TRF!

interms of the ta04, the trf is pretty crazy machine. (in my opinion anyway).
i haven't been able to change the diff housing into metal. but just about everything else can be changed/upgraded from the original.

Hey guys,

Been breaking in my belts at 3volts for going on 8 hours. Yes 8-hours or equivalent to 96 battery packs.

belt IS a little looser, but still tight as a fiddle string. Any other tips to free up this drivetrian-Tamiya TCS legal that is.

Ray

Check that the chassis is not tweaked. If you're using the Worlds front stabilizer that mounts on top of the upperdeck, check that the blocks are not pushing the front gearbox forward. I've had the bottom edge of those blocks push out on the front gearbox and that stretches the belt a little causing it to feel tight.
