Hey guys, I have decided to let my 04R go But my loss is your gain if you are interested. Comes with the TA04R goodies, carbon chassis, full set of sway bars, Epic 27t motor, fell set of tamiya .4 pitch spur gears, and slightly used 2004 NSX body done in Calsonic livery. Of course the box and manual are included as well as the original chassis and original spur gear. Make me an offer, will get pictures for you. Goes on ebay soon.

The car is awesome, just no room for all of these cars.

Sounds like a stripped screw, nut or the plastic cap that holds the nut can be stripped or worn to where the diff won't tighten!

I had that same problem a while back. Besides worn diff nut it can also be a broken outdrive itself! The diff outdrive(joint?) is like a cup, the bottom of this cup takes a lot of force. In my case, the bottom rim of this "cup" had a small split/crack in it so there wasn't enough resultant clamping force on the diff plates, hence loose diff.

Maybe my english is bad but I hope you get what I'm trying to say?..

Does anybody know the stock number for the Tamiya "A" tires? I want to make sure I get the right ones.

Thanks

If you think the rally ala real scale rally world, then :
1. Better use shaft driven than belt driven for 4WD
2. better start from off-road buggy chassis than on-road sedan chassis ...

just my 2 cents .....

i custom made a chasis cover just like HPI Rs4 rally. it prevents debris and pebbles from entering the chasis..

Yes, I agree with you,
The ta 04 has been my first car and now I think that is still the best, I run with tt01 and I think that it is rubbish.
tto1 sucks

i've seen a few guys running some old school 2 belt designs on these boards and doing quite well against the new lipo only chassis...any carpet set ups that anyone would not mind sharing?

I'm trying get the gearing right for my 04 as the stock gearing makes the motor about as fast as my old Reedy Rage stock motor...Fantom Racing suggests getting the final drive down to about 3.5:1 to 3.0:1...what do you guys think?..
