Dear friends,
I want to buy a new sedan and I don't know if I take one FF03 or a TA06. I usually run on a low traction track, with slow corners...
Do you think that FF03 can run near 4WD cars?

Hi,

With low traction and slow corners, the FF03 will, more than likely, get hammered out of the turns. The 4WD would be the way to go. (If it were me that is )

Cheers

Thank's Clittle!
So the FF03 would be better on high grip tracks and fast turns?
In this kind of track it would run near from 4WDs?

4WD and FF are 2 different animals... if you're running with 4WD cars, get a 4WD kit (TA06)...

I really like the FF03, but I'd have to agree...

The Tamiya TA06 seems to shine in lower traction, tighter tracks. The Tamiya FF03 is a very fun car, but cannot keep up with 4wds. They generally don't race together either. I would check with your local race program and see which race class is the most popular.

Seems we will have to wait a bit.....

The part number as listed in the FF03R manual is not showing anything on their site as yet! It will come.....

Just remember to get 44mm swing shafts too.

I have had my FF03 Pro for a month now and used it a couple of times and it's brilliant! I got the VW Scirocco bodyshell and it handles really well!

Here's a few pics..

Nice! I love the FWD class. Just too bad it is not popular here in East Canada.

I painted my WV orange
