it might help to put the tires in the microwave for a few seconds to get them alittle softer.. but they will go on.. just very very tight.









here's my NTC3.. and 5 tanks of gas ago, i had 100% tread! lol

Bunsincunsin,
Can I ask how you made your intercooler? (Maybe you bought it )
Is there somewhere I can check for an Intercooler Tutorial?

sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.

It's hand built out of a plastic called styrene, http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...ne&FVPROFIL=++ .

I used different thicknesses of styrene sheets to make it. You can use it to make practically anything...

I think there are some tutorials on DRCCentral and RCDori and they show you how to make intercoolers with other materials. This was my first time working with styrene and I think they turned out pretty good.

Intercooler:





Side-View mirrors:





If you need more info just ask!

Thanks Wallyburger!


GT02,

I think it may be used in arch. models, but I also know it is used a lot in model train building, as well as model cars.

Default Ta05 or yokomo?

Any one drifts with a ta-05? Does it react better to throttle changes compared to a yokomo SD?
