Default TAO4-Pro Blue Collection (pics) forum

Hi All,

Just completed (after 12 hours) constructing my TAO4-Pro, with Blue Collection components.

The motor is a 12turn by Team Atlas, controlled by a Tekin Speed Star ESC, all powered by a Sanyo 3000mah stick pack.

Other neat stuff includes:
- blue anodized aluminum heat sink
- blue '' '' TRF dampers
- blue '' '' heat sink
- blue '' '' and carbon fibre spur gear hub
- blue '' '' rear swing shafts
- blue '' '' steering arms
- FRP double deck

And that's about it!

I've yet to hit the track, only been in my driveway for 2 minutes actually.... but I'm going tomorrow.

This thing is so cool!

Sweet! I'll try to post my TA04 Blue as soon as I get hold of my planned blue esc and receiver so that it'll be really blue

Do you know if MIP makes CVDs for the TA04? Specially the blue one

Hehehe!

Did you have the problem with the assembly of the ball diff? I simply can not screw it with the small spring on. The car's finished only the diff

I actually did have trouble putting screwing the diff. The best way is to follow their guideline, which is to use a ruler or something to hold in the side where the nut and spring goes in, then use the hex tool to screw in the little screw...

I dont think MIP makes any CVD parts for the 04 series But Tamiya does have rear cvd halves that are blue

Iso - all you need now are the blue dish wheels that Tamiya makes and you'll have almost everything in blue

Get some LRP electronic equipment, some blue batteries, and channel 6 crystals (blue on 27 band) and it'll be your own blue monster

Just kidding...Nice ride tho...wish they offered the 04R in a blue package...All I have are the blue aluminum steering rack and posts

You guys are talking about anodizing check with Stefan. He is on this board and he does this type of work and it is good work. Just wish I had his website addy.

Iso: Alright I'll try that

k_bojar: Actually the kit came with the blue dish wheels, Iso just used the other set that also came with the kit.

Haha! I'm actually turning mine into the blue monster. Been saving up for quatum and phaser which are both blue and I'll be running it on blue Tamiya 2400s

Some of the blue parts can be purchased seperately and be used on the 04R, I think I just saw the blue heat sink in my LHS.

work - all of the blue parts can be purchased separately...or, I think, in a set of just blue hop-ups...Not a complete car kit, but a complete kit of blue stuff for the 04

I tried to get the blue heat sink when they first came out, but they werent available here yet maybe in a few months or so I'll get it

Yep, I'm saving the blue dishes for competition use.

Yes, the TRF414mII is certainly one baddass machine! And very impressive...

Hey Work, I'd love to see some pics when you're done with your blue beauty... ahem... monster!
