I have a question about LiPo usage in stock tub chassis. Where can I find a battery holder that can accommodate a LiPo Stick pack? I took a hiatus for the hobby for about 14 years and have a few TA02; M03; FF01 that are still in good shape. They were used in TCS events back then.

I have one in my Ta02 rerelease Porsche together with a Gens Ace Stickpack. Perfect solution, no problem so far. Itīs Cnc and made from Aluminum, black anodized.

Thought I'd revive this thread again. Being bored at home, I decided to build a TA02 out of spare parts I had. I used a regular tub chassis instead of frp plates, a gear diff in the rear, and a reversed one-way diff in the front. Hardened center shaft, rear swaybar, bearings throughout, oil shocks (shortened to keep the maximum height to about 7mm), non-adjustable upper arms (I didn't have any extra adjustable ones), aluminum steering rack (still has a little slop), a silver can, a Hobbywing 1060 esc, 66/25 gearing, and a set of foam tires (32mm 37 shore rear, 26mm 42 shore front with 7mm spacers to compensate for essentially being rwd). Slapped on an old and abused yellow Tamiya Corvette C5R body from a TA03, and went and had some fun in the driveway. Its top speed is probably around 15mph, but with the reversed one-way in front, that's really all it needs. It actually handles really well, with the fairly open gear diff in the rear. The challenge is not letting it diff out when accelerating out of a turn. It is possible to spin it out, but more likely when the front tucks in and the car starts to oversteer, the diff keeps the back-end from coming all the way around. It's slow to get away that way, but that's the penalty for not having smooth throttle and steering control!

Default TT02

I am just getting into on road racing I am racing Yokomo BD9 I bought a couple used to save money but still expensive. I have 2 kids (9-11) I donít want to put them on the track with a $600 carbon chassis car to destroy so I bought Tamiya for them to start with. I first bought one of the Semi Trucks since our track has a class with them and actually really think itís fun to drive. I liked it as soon as I built it so I ordered my daughter a car TT-02 Subaru to much of my suppose the chassis was a lot different I assume a newer version and I am really excited to drive it I am almost done with the build. I am confident that for the price itís a great car for the kids to learn with and have fun

I plopped a gps tracker on the RWD TA02 and although the battery was only at 7.8 volts, I was surprised to see the car come back with a top speed of 17mph! Not bad out of a regular ol' silver can. Perhaps driving the car slowly for an hour or so chasing the kids around broke the motor in nicely. I wonder if it'd be much faster with a full battery... I couldn't check the speed on the computer because those overpriced SkyRC gps meters really are pretty junky and my computer won't recognize it's plugged in.

Iím looking for recommendations on which battery to buy. The round stick battery I have is too long and I canít use the clip to hold it in place. Are there shorter Lipo batteries for this car?

I got my Gartpot lipo from AliExpress. It fits the older Tamiyas. Glad to say it fit my CC-01. Do not get the Venom lipo that is marketed for Tamiyas. They changed suppliers recently and the one I got will not fit.

Wow that nitro converted TA-02 is seriously cool with the vintage OS. I think it is time to give my old TA02 some carbon upgrades. Can anyone recommend which is the best supplier for the carbon chassis kits?

i was just wondering... but has anyone somehow, ever managed to modify and fit a modern oil filled gear diff in place of the gear/ball diff?

I mean, so many old cars use the same type of diff. Its not popular popular, but it definitely isn't dead....

I guess you could modify an FF03r geardiff by using a 3d print case adapted to the theeth size of the TA02.
As the old TA and FF are not competitive and a lot of fun to drive as they are, I think for most of the hobbyists this modification isn’t worth the money and effort.
I can only speak for myself here, but the modifications I do on my FF01 runner are only to make the car more reliable / have less wear (in the drivetrain for example).
