That chassis will be pretty expensive, why not save up more money and get the TB Evo, and use your TB01 as spare parts...

nah I'm only interested in the carbon shock towers. I keep breaking the normal shock towers. Besides, AFAIK I can't really fit much parts into the tb-evo from a tb-01....

actually been testing things on my car... e.g. different shock positions, ride height, spring stiffness, different type of gear diff grease etc.etc. everytime I change something the car performs somewhat differently so it's like I a new car and needs some getting used too.

HTHs!

Regards,
Alvin

PS: Breakage level should be much lesser from now on - more or less settled on something I like to handle on the yuan ching track

Wah never chio!

My rear gear diff grease ran out last sunday and the rear somehow became very loose (no grip). Since I didn't have any more 10k grease for the gear diff I switched from "one way driving style" to "pretend to be a lan-evo" driving style! Full ball into the corner, whack the brakes, drift abit and whoohoo out it like a rocket! I don't care tire wear liao, the 28rs I got can see the belt

Will be getting 32rs soon and *oh no* gotta re-setup the car for that track. Either those or express slicks/radials.

And oh BTW, last night, I set a new record... with that abovementioned driving "style", no breakage at all! Think I finally got my gear meshing correct liao. And the fact been using similar setup for the past 3 trips to the track. Mostly adjusted gear meshing and camber. I may be gearing up because somehow the new track... very easy to wheel spin. maybe it's my worn tires. Oh well I'm still learning. 9 weeks into the game

Regards,
Alvin

Construction site was too rough, we scouted around many places before finding a nice long gravel path near my place at Pandan Reservoir where we could play...........my TB01 lacks ground clearance to play at the rougher spots elsewhere.

Things are going pretty well, we place 7th in the A-Main at the sugar Bowl Touring Car Championships in Atlanta with the P1100 Yokomo MR-4 Chassis in the hands of Stefan Guenther, Charlie Barnes Placed 2nd at the HPI Challenge race in Seattle with the P3000 Pro3 Chassis kit, Second to the Best Driver at that track by a little over one second. haven't heard a whole lot more back from other drivers, however things seem to be going well for the people buying our products as well. A bunch of Mugen parts are out there doing well, the Tamiya stuff is just comming as far as the TB01.

We tried to keep the TB01 lower priced with high performance, Our goal was to get the stiffness of the TBEVO however the Plastic in the Gearboxed of the TB01 keeps that from happening, though we are considerable stiffer than the Tamiya Carbon Set.

So things are going well.

Thanks for asking
