Default Shaft Driven 1/10 Touring Car

Hello all,

Most of the shaft driven cars I've seen are pretty low end. I know the TB03 VDS is a drifter, but how well would it handle at speed? I'm not racing at any events, probably just parking lot racing and a little track racing with friends. I just want a great quality car. Any suggestions?

If you want a shaft drive TC for parking lot bashing, it's hard to beat a TC3 or TC4. If you just have to have super high tech and expensive, Awsomatix.

+1

You can also get a standard TB-03 for cheap

They can handle pretty decently. There was a guy in my area who used to do very well with a TB-03, even in 13.5 boosted class.

I would go TB03 so you can race TCS too later on.

Good to know. I mainly run 1/8, so the 1/10 world is still pretty new to me. Thanks

I run a Kyosho TF-5s. It comes as a kit with a really nice body set. Its 200mm so you can put any of the nice HPI bodies which are mainly available in 200mm. The best part about is that many of its parts are campatible with the Lazer ZX-5. Eventhough its mostly plastic, it handles quite well and is easy to tune. The only mod I needed to do was trim the chassis to fit hardcased lipos.

I think the EVO is a shaft drive as well.

The tc4 is the best choice, as long as you choose only lightweight electronics/motor to run it....
