Default Just finished building her and setting her up! Mk.2 Pro!

This is my first Nitro 1/10th car in the last 4 or 5 years. Before this I was running a Factory Team NTC3.

I always liked Tamiya and feel that Mk.2 Pro is a very competetive car none the less. I just started to tweak the throttle and engine, so I dont have any idea of power, or speed, but by the way it takes off with a blip[ of the throttle already tells me this car will be sweet once shes setup.

Hope you like my pics. Please feel free to post pointers or whatever you feel may be helpful towards getting the car in top trim.






Cheers,

Sal

Default Nice car!

Love the car! Do you not find the yellow springs a little on the soft side though?? It is great to see that there are other people with this car. They are quite rare, even here in Japan. Also tuning this car is quite expensive. I have spent the same amount of money tuning my Mk.2 PRO as it would cost to buy an MRX4 (62,000 JPY) and a MTX4 (38,000 JPY)...

My TG10-Mk.2 PRO is fully tuned, 100,000JPY+ spent on the car, have upgraded the car with every product I can find other than:

Racy carbon upper plate, Racy aluminium racing chassis and Racy carbon front plate, - Hopefully will arrive this Thursday! - Also upgrades not included in the pics - TRF Special blue damper set

WOW...sounds like you are sporting a pretty slick Mk.2 The Yellow springs are cool...little soft, but not that bad for the area I practice on....ill probally chage it up to whites once I hit the track.

last night I put a fresh new set of universals on the car

Cheers,

Sal

Hey Sal!

Yup, you will like the white spings I am sure...Make sure to change the Stabilizer bar as well!!! For me I always use the blue (hard) one, regardless of what springs I am using. I noticed a vast improvement with the harder springs, I mostly use white rear, Ex. hard (dark-grey) front, or F+R dark grey springs.

I will finally get my racy upper deck and chassis plate this week, should be much better as the batteries are more accessible with it.

The universals are a great upgrade!!!

BTW Out of interest, I bought the PRO kit, and despite having used the strengthened prop. shafts (heavy!!) I also bought the aluminium universal ones from Square...I found that not only were they more smooth (being universal) and lighter, but even running the OS Speed factory tuned TZ.12 engine I have yet to break them, so I think it is a very worthwhile upgrade, well worth the money!!

Enjoy the car and happy racing!!!

Hi Rom!

Yeah check out the first page of that link...3 of us use tuned Mk.2s...

Have fun with the car...

Oh, and for upgrades...check this out, new in Japan...

http://www.eaglemodel.com/

(You must enter the Japanese language site, the English does not have the product ) Then go to modified parts (side menu), and select Tamiya TG10-Mk.2 and you will find their newest upgrade part released over here in Japan, at a great price of 7,500 JPY...I am enjoying mine very much!!

You can go straight to:

http://www.eaglemodel.com/jp-net/cat...0category.html

And select the TG10-Mk.2 for the pic...really nice parts!!

Bests

Scoobs,

What problems are you having with the linkeage?

The 2-speed should be find, just make sure the screws are turned out according to when you want the shift change....and make sure the internals are ok...
