Default Question about FF gearboxes

Hi

So i am kinda interested in building a Rear engined porsche chassie. (238mm?)

And im thinking it should not be too hard to fix a new alu plate and top deck if you have the right tools.. (which i have)

So should i just use the Tamiya gearbox? FF-04 or is it 05?

Have anyone ever seen it done btw? outside of hacked Tamiya M06..

You would have to reverse the rotation on the motor if you used the FF gearbox hanging off the rear. That might have some compromises in terms of choosing the electronics.

The M-06 would be a good base, as it's Long wheelbase is very close to 238mm, and if you want to widen it, you should be able to fit TL01 suspension. Otherwise, consider using a rear motor 2wd buggy gearbox, or build a custom case in which to mount the FF cars geartrain.

ta03r was a rear motor car, just modify the front so there is no gear box, you can also get it to the correct wheelbase 237mm, I recently built a mf01x with rear motor only for the Porsche body, and its probably the easiest to do using a modern chassis, that uses lipos and active hobby sells really good hop up aluminum bits for it, it can be made to 239mm wheel base from stock, but the back arms can be shimmed 2mm for the Porsche body, to 237mm and is one of the true rear motor chassis, just leave the front gearbox and gears out, no shaft etc, etc. If you want a carbon chassis, then the original Ta05 version one can be made to 237mm with some suspension modifications, but will remain mid motor, which I have done as well, out all three the mf01x is the best options take a look at the chassis.Hope this helps.

Or you could buy either of the new TA02SW chassis cars that are on the market.

Thats not a big deal is it?

The reason im not keen on M06 is because that gearbox is not designed to be mounted on a flat carbon/alu bottom plate. It has its mounts for a tub right?

Loneguylander. It has a mid engine layout and 4WD, thats not what im going for here.


Looking at pictures such as the one below, it seems that with the FF-04 evo you need to make some new solutions for the front suspension.
