could you measure it? I need this dimension:



XV has 3mm shorter rear swing shafts, if rear wheel axle is 3mm longer than front, it's exactly what I need

Papi, Mine is the Cvd version. Shaft length should be the same. I'll try to get the measurement tonight.

To keep my self busy while in Brazil, I brought a new body to paint.. Toyota 86. Paint is something expensive here so I didn't go all out rallye, its red with subtle white detail. Will post picts when it is done.

I did see one Toyota 86 in rallye livery on google... I wonder if Toyota will officially enter rallye with it.

Oooh, that looks nice man! Good fit and good paint job

I have a Toyota AE85 Trueno body waiting to be painted for similar general purpose / drift use. You just got me motivated to take that on as my next project

Thanks. It's the one from Tamiya. I initially bought the HPI one which is 200 mm. I thought I would be able to space out the wheels via hex and +2 offset wheels I already had to make it look right. It didn't work out. I would need + 6 offset or more.. So I ended up giving it to my friend and purchased the Tamiya one.

Having painted up both, the Tamiya is definitely better quality. The only annoying part was that the decals were not pre-cut. Most newer bodies from Tamiay are, so I don't know why this one was not. Maybe Mr. Tamiya knew I would have a lot of spare time in my hands during my stay here lol.

Hey guys loving the xv01 so far, i mainly use mine for gravel, but im having problems where stones will jam one of the rear wheels and steering frequently.

Wanting to see what ppl have done to overcome this and a few tips





I know these stones are big for 1:10th but i successfully made a DF03ra reliable on this surface by making guards from polycarb and inserting a sponge in the steering to keeps rocks out.

I cut up an old motorcycle inner tube and shoe-glued the rubber to extend the stock fenders. I still get some rocks here and there but it's much better. You can probably do the same with lexan or other plastics.
