Really comes down to what tracks are nearby, and what you want to do for fun

Thanks RebBullFixx. Nice and simple answer. Perfect! Can a TT-02 be just as quick as a RM-01?

On high grip, nothing compares to 12th scale

4WD have the advantage where grip is low, and over rougher terrain

Does anyone know of any sources of spares for these? I broke my original chassis on the weekend and want to try and replace it with the 01x chassis so I can maybe put a Xenon front suspension on it.

Alternatively if someone would be kind enough to draw up a template so I could modify a standard 01 chassis that would be awesome too

Does anyone know if any other brand ride height inserts (1/4" axle) fit into Tamiya motor pods (RM01,F1)?

Trying something like the Fenix gear diff really interests me but I need 1/4" axles to do it and I am not currently interested in changing cars.

SY BRAND did that for the F103, don't think it fits the RM01/F104 pod :

If they fit the F103, it should fit f104 and RM. They haven't changed the Tamiya inserts since the F103.

Thanks... I was hoping for somewhere where I didn't need to learn Japanese but beggars can't be choosers

What's with TCS dropping the 1/12 class? Was really hoping to get involved.

I know this is an old post, but I don't know who else to ask. The car at the very top. The white Porsche with what looks like an 1980's chassis; what brand is that chassis? I have one that looks almost identical. I have been trying to ID it. Please help. I can post pics later.

Thanks

TAMIYA RM-01 chassis. You can still find a couple kits:

Newman Joest Racing Porsche - RM01ITEM# 58521

Mazda 787B No.18 - RM01 Le Mans 24 Hours 1991 1991ITEM# 58555

Default CRC Axle on the RM?

Hi. I have a CRC 12th scale scale axle and I am looking for the bearing that would allow that to work on the RM. Any suggestions?

A bearing on its own won't do it as the CRC axle is 1/4" and uses a 5/16x1/4 bearing where the RM axle is 6mm metric and uses a 6x10.

It is possible to modify the original eccentric bearing holders but I'd say thats more miss than hit. There is a Japanese company that makes eccentrics that fit into the Tamiya pod plates but take a 1/4" bearing that would suit the CRC axle - 4210-F103: 1/4inch axel height adjustment adapter for F103

You can contact them through - [email protected]
