Honestly this is my first ever onroad chassis. Prior I had only owned trucks. I am not really sure of "a good ratio" I think it depends what you want to do. Research tells me smaller ratios are good for big open tracks with long sweeps and big ratios eg 1.6-2+ are good for technical stuff and also give a more realistic counter-steering look. Starting at 50/50 was a great way to improve my newb skills but i found it much more fun drifting around the kitchen table legs at 1.25. Can't wait to try 1.5 and hopefully higher.

You can find the 3racing pulleys on ebay and RCmart and probably many other places. RCMart has them listed as "T20 Pulley" etc not 20t pulley for some reason so try that in the search if you cant find them.

In regards to the universals you are right, 46mm would have been much better. I plan to try out the active hobby adjustables (43-53mm) eventually. Bit over the money pit for now though and will hold off on them until I need to order something else.

PS: the XV-01 TC seems to use the same arms, knuckles, c-hubs as the ta-05 and a few other tamiya cars. This which helped a lot when sourcing parts and should mean the width is the same as stock.

Default First Hobby Grade RC Car

Hey Guys,

After getting an HPI Micro RS4 Block for Christmas I decided to get a hobby grade car. Maybe this is crazy for my first RC Car but I have an XV-01 on order from my LHS. Just wanted to say I've enjoyed reading the thread and look forward to building it and being a member here.

Yeah, it got a bit dirty.
It's all clean now, but I do have a problem with things getting into this part of the car. I've noticed some people using bicycle tyre tubes to extend the protectors. I'm thinking I'll need that too.

I ran it in my local park today and it got stones in the steering and in-between the front drive shafts and the suspension arms. Made quite a racket.

Other than that, when there is no obstruction, this handles great. I really like the front spool on dirt. You point, shoot and it goes where you want.

Default Cleaned, dried and out we go again.

I took it out again today. This track is used mainly for 1/8 buggies and it's bumpy! I think I need to remove some steering though. It shoots left and right very, very quickly.

The other day my front weels went into full lock again. In that case I bought universal shaft 42 mm for Sakura zero. As well for the axls arms. I'm going to check out other parts today. Suspension arms etc... Does anyone have tried anything? Pictures will come later (if they fits)...

I had the same problem with the steering binding. I used a dremel to remove some material from the c-hub. It would rub the the drive cup when turning. I am still using dog bones.

So we now have long damper stays to be used with buggy springs. But then it says the kit comes with the CVA Mini dampers?

CVA Mini are used as front shocks on Tamiya buggies, this is OK.. But I don't get why they made new daper stays, I thought that CVA mini fit on XV, since XV01T got them?
