Nsx is great.

360 is good, except the rear body tuck issues.

Corvette is good, some like to change wings.

350z is a smallish wing, and hard to put a bigger wing on and keep a good angle on it.

CLK's all have a small wing, although you can add a bigger wing easy.

i liked the way the NSX felt better than the F360, at least on the TamiyaUSA track..

i got one of the Calsonic 350Z's to try, but havent painted it yet.
At least try a custom paintjob on the 350Z

I've tried to do the Nismo 350Z, it mightn't have the right stickers but it looks much better and handles quite well, not in same league as STRATUS, but it is great for stock

Yeah, I didn't go to the nats...but yeah, there were plenty of NSX bodies at the regionals, too.

I really like the fact that you can actually tell what a Tamiya body is supposed to be.

1 800 Tamiya A

i agree.... then everyone will be using one. since GT-1 is the fastest class, the more diversified it is, the better it looks as people are watching. "ooo! the ferrari is beating the nsx!"

Default TB-02 weight

Hi,

I've been racing a TB-02 for about 10 months. I've now got most of the Evo aluminum parts, including the TRF shocks, Surikarn upper link mounts, lower suspension mounts, carbon shock towers, as well as the TB-02 aluminum motor mount, aluminum steering, and SSG carbon chassis brace. Sway bars, too. All stock screws, turnbuckles, etc. Electronics include a LRP Quantum Comp2 controller, a Futaba PCM receiver, and a standard-sized Hi-Tech servo. I'm using GP3300's and hardwiring. Tires are rubber (of course); Tamiya A's. Body is either a TCS Skyline/Ferrari. Does anyone have an approximate ready-to-run weight of a similar setup (I don't have a suitable scale)? I know that there will be variations on the paint job, etc. I'm just looking for a ball park number. I've heard that the TB-02 is "heavy" when compared to a graphite car like the TB Evo III/IV. Thanks.

Andy

Andy,
My EVO IV weighed in at 3lbs 6oz w/ type A's and a parma body. That was when it was stock. I added the light weight driveline parts and got it down to 3lbs 3.9 oz. W/ a tamiya body my gues is it would be back up to 3lbs 6oz.

I forgot to add that I just got my TB02 together but haven't gotten it to the track to weigh it yet.

Adam,

Thanks for the reply. I think we actually met this past Saturday at RCO. I may be mistaken. I was the guy running the red Ferrari body in GTO and trying to stay out of everyone's way. I'll be interested to see how much your TB-02 weighs. I didn't realize the EVO IV wasn't super light right out of the box.
