So you may find a good balance between the two. I weighted my lipo set-up and i believe i was 100g under the latest ni-mh. good luck hopefully ill have one soon. Ive been missing some indoor high bite 2wd buggy action, dont get me wrong 8th scale is a blast. ok sry, back on topic

Not a problem. I will try weighting my buggy but at a lesser level than the Mod cars to see how it goes. To date the 201 has been very good but if adding a little bit of weight makes it better then

As for the avatar ... that was just the baby. Its 12 large relatives were just plain scary

Well im not saying you shouldnt start there even if it did hinder a little top end you'll make up for it, if it was anyhting like my b4 when i added 70grams under my battery(235g lipo) and 14 up front and rear it really woke the car up as far as being planted, but different car with an 8.5 so there i go getting off topic. anyhow have fun, thats a big kitty =p

ifuonlyknew - Tekin v208, there is no throttle profile any more, it is now a timing profile, so if you are adjust TP thinking your changing your throttle curve, your not, your chaging to Timing Profile 4 preset. Hope I am telling you something you already know....


Guys, I thought this was a thread about the TAMIYA TRF201, as I am sure there isn't a Tamiya TESTOSTERONE....

No there is a throttle profile. You have to go to the throttle tab (circled in Yellow in my included screenshot) and it is the thing that is labled "Throttle Profile" (Yellow arrow). I am not trying to be an ass by posting this just trying to show you that there is a throttle profile.

So while everyone's been on here bickering, I've been wrenching. Got my rides freshly rebuilt and ready for this weekend's JBRL race.

I picked up a used TRF201 and im going over it. When i take off the rear wheels the pin in the axle justs fall out. Should i put some ca on it or something else?? The car looks good tho.

Do not glue them. Either live with it or you could try seeing if Assocaited roll pins will fit instead

I basically shim the axle out so that the pin is snug when installing it. I also use a very small amount of CA on the pin to be sure it doesn't come out.

I put some ca on a piece of paper and dipped the tip of a x-acto blade and just put a tiny drop on the center of the pin and its nice and snug. Thanks Randy!

Glad it worked, easiest fix really. There is a crush spacer between the axle bearings though, so you can shim it tight enough to have the pin fit snug without binding up the bearings at all.
