No, I still have my Japanese Edition. Waiting to see if there will be a conversion for the new car. I have to many hop ups on this one to get rid of. Great car though.

I am considering getting this kit. There is an awesome price on this car but how good is this car.

I am getting mixed reviews on this car. Like the plastic parts are too flexible and that it is not very tight fitting. All the plastic parts are losely fitting and must be shimmed to get a tight fit.

What are your thoughts on the car for the one who has it?

I do not want to spend any money on hop ups. Would the car be competitive against the new models out there like the TC3, 414M or TA04, XXXs and such out of the box?

I will be running stock class that has a limit on battery, 2400 and under with no matching allow and ROAR motor.

Oh the other thing is how is the quality of the parts. Is it design and made that can handle a couple of whack on the wall before it breaks or will it shatter when you grace the boards?

Let me know.

Thanks

hieppo

As far as i know there is not a conversion kit for old model to Type T ! the chassis, bulkhead, shock towers are different.

hieppo- This car is tough....the only problems you might have with this car is the screws pulling out of the steering blocks if you hit it just right. I never had it happen to me but my friend did a few times. I ordered the Hard type steering blocks (aluminum) and havent had a single problem. I personally have never broken a thing on this car (knock on wood) and i really like it. It is really easy to take up the slop on the car which doesnt develop until after you have run many battery packs.

Any car can be competitive in the touring car market nowadays. The reason you dont see this car winning many championships is because they dont have any sponsored drivers that i know of. The reason Asc, Losi, Shum. win all the big races is because they pay drivers to run their cars.....those drivers are very good and they could probaly drive a Tamiya to a championship...i.e. David Jun.

I would put my Atlas up against any TC3 or XXXS in durability.

Thanks Gospeed

My main concern is the design of the car parts. Now I have not experience any of the other cars beside what the local drivers have.

I have seen Tamiya 414M car getting tossed around the track like a hot crossed bun and the car continue on to finish the race. This is truly an amazing event.

I have also seen TC3 get tossed around as well and also finish the race.

I then have a friend with an XXXs and when the car start to break, almost guarantee something else will go. It will go through dry spell where no parts break and then everything breaks down on him. I did notice that the C Hub carrier on the XXXs is pretty wimpy design, kind of fragile looking. This piece has broken more times than I can count.

I know there is no perfect design but I like to get a car that is well balance design of strength and speed and not like the XXXs where I think speed was emphasize.

What is the internal ratio of the YM-34??? Does it use 64 pitch or 48 pitch spur?

Thanks

Hiep

Actually the YM34 does not come with a spur so you will have to supply one yourself. The pulley's are 16 tooth and the diff pulleys are 37 tooth...making it a 2.31 ratio.

You had commented that someone told you the plastic parts are too flexible....well if it is too stiff it will be more fragile. Being that the parts are a really soft nylon so it will flex a little before it breaks.

We will see this winter now that kansasracer has one as to how durable they really are

Where is atlas RC car made?? Is there actually an RC company called altas?

The new Atlas on integy's website looks like the combo of Tamiya's TB evo and TRF414M. with the battery position/chassis of EVo and the belt-drive and suspenion of a TRF414M... The car looks really nice too.
