Normal C hubs. Not from the 418. No issues rubbing. I race with these in my 417 with DCJ also without issues.

Which length DCJ?

I used the DCJ with my old 416 as well.. With no issues.

I'm surprised that your having issues with TC version, the rallye arms are shorter and the suspensions mounts are narrower. Mine seemed really smooth

Im looking into buying the arai kit, is there still full parts support for it? I know some of the stock parts are discontinued but have carbon replacements. Is this the case for all the discontinued parts?

Gday,

I still see good amounts of the parts (tamiya ones and alloy hop ups) getting around on eBay and have ordered parts from banzai hobby not too long ago.
I don't think the carbon parts are available for every single part, more just the ones susceptible to damage.

Be careful with the Arai model, I hear it's a tough one to paint if you want it the same as the box art.

Great car though, enjoy.

Hi

Would it be possible to convert the XV01 into a 2WD/FWD RC ?
(i.e., by removing the belt)


TIA

Just take the rear dogbones out and it's FWD!!

But yes, looking at the instructions the spur gear connects into the front diff so taking the belt would achieve what your after.

Cheers,

I just got a XV-01 to try. My son wanted a car that goes on pavement and can also get through the grass. He also wanted lights and a working windshield wiper.
This is what I have so far.
For light buckets I used the Tamiya Subaru rally car buckets. They leave a gap on the outside edge but I covered that with the decal from the outside and covered it with aluminum tape from the inside.
I still have to install the other light bucket, and the lights.
The Subaru rally car rear buckets don't fit at all, so on the back I will just make holes in the body and the lights will stick out through the light decal.

I still have to install the slave wiper. It hits on the fender liners, so I need to do some trimming for clearance.

Just to test it I ran the wiper motor off the ESC (just because the wires to the 540 motor cross right under the wiper motor). In fact, it works pretty well that way. The wipers stop when the car stops and they run fast when the car is moving fast. The wipers on my full size BMW do that.

Hello to all.

Quick question:

What length of motor sensor wire did you use on your chassis? Raman?

Thanks!

You need Tamiya 54381 35mm sensor cable

Follow up question @Raman. I plan to use 500k wt oil in the front diff and 3000wt in the rear. Is this good for tarmac? Should I use the stock oil for the dampers or is there any particular weight that you recommend? And lastly, what would be a good 48p spur/pinion combo for a 13.5 motor on tarmac rally? The track is semi technical.

Thanks in advance.

for 13.5 you want a final drive ratio around 4.5 So you could do a 96 / 55 combo. I was running 64p using 82 / 46

As for set up.. here is my set up sheet for tarmac. Just keep in mind that you do need to drive this car different than a standard tc. Since the weight is all in the front, you drive it like a FWD car and the back end will follow.

Thank you so much for your help.

Finally, can you kindly please post the part numbers of the dampers, shock shaft, and springs used in the long damper spec? It is out of stock everywhere I look.

I found the shock towers but can't find the dampers itself.

I think I found the chassis that I really like...
