I had to search to find this thread, but glad to see others are interested in RC rallying. I don't have many places to run here in Manhattan but I just finished up this Tamiya TB01 - Lancer Evo 6 and wanted to share it with everyone. If anyone else is in the NYC area and into rc rally, speak up! Would love to meet up for a time trial or two.

Not sure what you need to know. They're a good sturdy chassis in the tradition of rally cars from Tamiya, probably a bit more solid than some of the old ones like TA01-02, not sure how it compares with TB cars, but a lot of fun. Make sure you check if you want to use lipos in it because it is a bit difficult to find something that'll fit. One mod I would recommend is front uni joints. If you want to splash the cash, rears can't go amiss but are not that necessary.

thanks for the reply, will it be possible to run this with brushed 27T mod or brushless ? as for battery i could maybe sacrifice with nimh if my stick pack wont fit. the kit i was looking at has the cayene body on it and from looking at pics on the web and the package i dont know if i could fit 1/10 TC bodies on it like the evo or subie rally versions. TIA

Stick packs are what the car is made for hence it will easily take lipo "stick" packs.

About motors I guess you could use whatever you want, but remmeber the driveshaft layout and plnty of gears make for serious drag so you are opening a can of worms. The more powerful (read torquey) the motor the more you stress the transmission. The more speedy the motor the mroe you stres the motor. I woudl suggest try a 23 turn (Tamiya dirt tuned or similar) and see how you feel about it. You might find you have more speed than you can control.

thanks for the info, went back to the LHS and looked over the DF-01 kit, it would need major hop-ups to get it close to the DF-03RA 2008 specs so i just ordered the new DF-03RA kit. gonna keep you guys posted on the build when i get my hands on it.
