It does look a lot like the FW05 and CD3 (even though Ofna managed to put a box for the receiver and a spot for the battery so there's no wires showing). If you can get Ofna parts, try a set of their 0.8 gears, they should work. I'll try to track down a setup I use at my track in the morning.

the spring will depend on the motor. Usually you atart with .5mm from the thread to the nut and adjust it from there.

As for the clutch gap, there's a good thread on here on how to set the centax clutch. It's a must read.

I have had the chance to run the car at my local club track. The surface is concrete so rubber tires with inserts are the wheels of the day. The car is awesome once you add the front sway bar and change the shock springs from the stock yellows to the whites with 50wt shock oil. I did leave the yellow sway bar attached. Mine is paired with the Mugen X-12 engine and has incredible take-off power from a dead start. What I am amazed with is the off-power ability of the car. The car has that NTC3 off-power free-roll in which you can maintain off-throttle speed into corners and power up coming out of corner strong. I am very pleased with this version over the Mk.1 is has replaced (I have on of those too). Now, Tamiya needs to market this car more as a player in the touring car race game. It deserves at least that much.

Default Woooah

The black clutch spring is really hard! Often ends up stalling the engine with normal running as the clutch biting point is a very, very fine line...Unless every time you accelerate from a standing start you are going 70%+ accel., Slow starts are hard...

The medium clutch spring works best for me, I have tried all three. My TG10-Mk.2 PRO is fully tuned, 100,000JPY+ spent on the car, have upgraded the car with every product I can find other than:

Racy carbon upper plate, Racy aluminium racing chassis and Racy carbon front plate, - Hopefully will arrive this Thursday! - Also upgrades not included in the pics - TRF Special blue damper set

Default Parts for mk.2

Does anyone know where to get parts for the Tamiya TG10-MK.2, besides Tamiya themselves? I tried RCMart but they have limited parts. Also I probably won't shop from them again because I placed an order with them, and then 2 days later they decided to tell me the were out of stock on those parts. I got to race, don't have time wait!! I saw those Racy upgrades, they look awesome. I was thinking of switching cars if I can't find parts for this car. Please Help!

I'm know that BoyToys.ca sells lots of Tamiya stuff and always has stuff in stock, so you may want to give them a call and see if they are able to help you out.

BTW...here are some new pics of my Mk2 Pro..











So fresh and so clean!!

Cheers,

Sal

Racy, Square, M.Factory...Eagle also brought out a full set of alum. F+R uprights, upper and lower sus arms. They rock!

These parts are easy to get anywhere in Japan, and cheap. Try some of the J-shops out there

Guess they might kill you on prices though...Dead easy and cheap to get bits for the car over here.

Bump!

I need some help sourcing a Racy Chassis for my Mk.2 Pro and other high end hop ups that are hard to get, or not avail in USA/Canada.

I would be willing to pay for someones time if they can assist me in getting the parts im looking for.

Thanks!

Yeah thats what Chris told me from the same place you directed me to.

I have all the parts I want on order, but no chassis and thats the most important one for me.

Someone in Japan, or elsewhere help a fellow Tamiya brother out.


Cheers,

Sal

Join the club. I live in Tokyo Japan and the Racy factory has halted production of the lower and upper chassis plates. So I tried Race Factory in Australia, and guess what, they have none left (I made an order)...And they will not be getting any in, because as I know they are out of production.

Chris of Race Factory claims that this happened earlier with the TG10 parts and Racy started production after a similar halt, replacing the old parts with some different upgrade bits.

Let's wait, I am waiting on my order from Race Factory and can get in contact with Racy here in Japan whenever I want.

These parts are unsourceable anywhere in Japan or Australia. May be a few of them habging around on shelves in Guanghuajie in Mongkok, HK but who knows.

Best of luck with those parts...
