Default Tamiya TA03

Any TA03 players here?

I have one TA03R which i plan to convert to use the F chassis tub and making it an MR configuration. That is, provided i can get the parts.

It seems that F is more popular than R. Why? Shouldn't it make more sense to put more weight in the middle of the car?

Hi guys, i have just inherited a partial chassis with DIY aluminium double deck.
It is all rusty and need a major cleaning up. Could somebody list out the number and length and type of screws needed to fit it? Thanks.

Bro,
Nice to know that some folks here are still using TA03.
I'm using a TA03R-S (short bathtub version)
For GPM parts, go to www.asiatees.com

Thanks
Eric

Very very difficult, unless you camp @ ebay to try your luck there everyday... but be ready to get chop chop by the sellers!

Best is get 2nd hand ones thru ebays, drccentral or other forums here and there...

One question bro, are you really interested in investing one?? There`s still another way. Buy everything in loose parts new and assemble them up! I`m 99% sure they are still available, but might be costly.

Edit:

Forgot to add another option, which is buy a TA03R kit with Stargek, online or with those previously won during drift comp( eg. eleven X, etc ). Then buy the neccessary parts to convert into a F version will be much cheaper then the above option!
