Take out the gears and the dogbones in the front and the metal shaft and it will be RWD.

I guess you could piggyback 2 motors and run one in reverse. . . .

Wild Dagger uses a different chassis to the TL01, they are not
interchangeable. Although the actual *gears* might be the same,
the bits holding them & the 2 motors is different.

You could put a sedan body on a WD and touring car hoops on
I guess, but you'll then have problems getting the gearing right.
WD has pretty low gearing for the larger tyres.



Similarly, TL01's chassis *is* also the gearbox... so unless you
can invent something to get around this, you can just keep on
dreaming of any CF replacement chassis for it... just HOW are
you gonna do it??

Tamiya does sell a Lightweight version but.
(And some time back, Japan got a transparent version - cool.)

If I'm not wrong, that car in the pic is M04L. try and find more on the Japan website for the carbon fibred TL01. I came across one alike when I was browsing but forgot where tho

Default how I do it...

hey WC chill.... i don't know how do it and that is the reason why i would like to know whether there is an aftermarket kit to do this.
i'm sorry if my questions persistant and irritating but that's me, and that's what happens when you stick a 14 year old in a cast and say he won't be playing anything realted to sport for THREE MONTHS and that includes running.
thanx for the feed back gto2, yes the car is a m-04l atleast it looks like there is some way to do this.

Can you put the suspension arms and hubs of a Wild Dagger to the TL01 Chassis of a stadium raider?

Any experience anyone?

Default TL-01

just go here and you will be fine!
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/rc/...ps/tl01xb.html

If you want your TL-01 to be unique, just make the cut out holes bigger! sort of lightening it, but inthe right places cause it might break.

And you could get holed of the tobee craft gear for the TL01, its adjustable so you could blow everybody away, straight line speed that is.
