Default TA03R -S- TRF

Hi...please help - I have the opportunity to get my hands on a brand spanking new TA03R -S- TRF (I know its outdated) loaded with lots of goodies. Should I be buying this kit??....I have my TA05 currently and really love riding it around....my thoughts are; buy it, and race it on track and kit some butt - the chasis sounds really good - can I get advise and reviews??

If its going for the right money go for it, plus you would have a dry and wet weather car. It can be useful having one for each

The car is great but really for the collector now it is just to heavy and has to much rotating mas to be competive now. I am not saying you won't have fun with it but it would be giving up laps to the compeititon to run it in a serious race. I have a few and I love them.

Have to agree with Bill. A great car, for it's time... But sadly really outclassed now.
Still worth having just for the coolness factor and because its Tamiya's first belt-drive car. I like em a lot myself but don.t delude yourself into thinking that it can cut the mustard now...

Default TA05

Thanks for that one....let me ask: the gearing currently on my TA05?. I am currently running a P2K2 super stock motor, infinty keyance A10B and the gearing is as per the standard (spur - 70T and Pinion 22T). I want to get a bit more competitive, should I install the 0.4 module upgrade (Spur-105T) and corresponding 0.4 pinion. Please if anyone has played around with these setting can you advice..
