Default TRF TA07MS




Thought I'd make a deticated thread for discussion related to the ta07ms.
i have almost finished the build. But as my current race car is fresh, I am in no rush.

Feel free to share setups, pics and anything related .

Here is my build at the moment.

is there an advantage to the alloy servo mount?

I found the stock battery holders to be very heavy

Yes I think it look better,haha, but that is what I think.
I don't think it has other advantages,maybe only the slight weight reduce.

And your ta07ms looks great!

Just a stock kit build for me untill I find some more parts. Hoping they bring out a alloy chassis for carpet.

I just wanted the carbon look battery holders, I have a set of vigor carbon battery holders and they look really nice, for the aluminum servo mount its just bling.

Given that there's four carbon chassis on the market, I think this shouldn't be it's own thread.

There's tons of aftermarket chassis for Xray cars as well but each OEM model gets it's own thread.

It's an official Tamiya release. Not some small companies conversion made in their garage. Why not just scroll past?

I just finished my build what a car, it looks amazing, I have a 419xr as well and the 07ms looks so much nicer, not sure to race it or put it in a glass case, lol. once I have the electronics in which are the same as the 419xr, I can do a comparison.

Iíll be testing my car for the first time Friday. Hopefully the small changes Iíve made will help. The car will not balance with the Tamiya battery holders. I ditched them for the Tamiya 419xr holders. I made a center chassis brace. I felt the car was to flexible for carpet. One shock leaks no matter how many orings Iíve changed. (Garbage) May put Xray shocks on the car. The car built great. But the instructions were terrible for the proper shimming.

I did the same with the battery holders, switched to the 419xr ones with vigor carbon support, the shimming was off but if you have built enough rc kits you can figure it out. The shock is a surprise as Tamiya shocks are one of best in business, but can,t go wrong with Xray either, anyone try this with regular shocks with high mount stays?

I haven't tested my car. But tested my trf shocks on my yokomo bd8. No leakage luckily. I cant believe how heavy the ms battery holders are. Might get some carbon ones made.
