How´s going there mate?
You talked me out of it and with good reason. They car travelled to Brazil and back with me, kept me entertained while we wait for my son to be born. I also had an awesome track day with it at Conesul in Portão.

I did buy the TB04 Pro II to race on asphalt. Overall very pleased with it.

Hi Jarrod,

I believe the shock set you'll need with the longer damper stays / shock towers are two sets of the tamiya mini dampers (not super mini) (2x 50519 I think) and a set of the front TRF501x springs (53974).

Hope that helps,
Crouch

I'm planning on buying a xv-01, it will be my first rally car. Can someone point me in the right direction to where as I can find a spoiler for the body? I'm looking at buying a Subrau body. I'm also looking for a place that has a good selection of rally bodies to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

If you are referring to the Subaru Team Arai kit, yes it comes with the spoiler. The actual car it replicates did not have it though, which is why box art pictures did not show it.

Out of the box they are perfect for drifting, since the rear end is light.

Being front motor and belt driven goes a long way for drifting. You will also want to put the spool in the back and the one way in the front.
The closest thing to being an issue is steering angle and this chassis has none.

As a drift car, this car is crazy similar to the TA03f in the build but with alot more options this time around. I don't have an XV, but my buddy does and I looked at his chassis and researched and planned it out. Steering aside, this is probably the best non-drift specific chassis available.
