Default TG10R My first nitro car

hi guys,

I bought a tg10R which is my first 1:10 scale car. I moved to 1:10 form mini-z (please dont laugh)

I have been reading that this car is not very good so I am a bit disapointed I must say.

Is there anyone who makes nice hop-ups to make it a bit more competivite? I am interested in some alum. parts.

thanks !

in addition, are the mugen and serpent the most competivive cars? and Y is the tg10r such a bad car?

Hello

if this is your first nitro touring car, i wouldnt sweat it at all

Chances are, it would be plenty enough for a beginner in the field.

And plus, tamiya quality is unrivalled, they are just GOOD, and that is an understatement.

Cheers`

No worrys THE TG10R is a very very good car. with the right engine and driving skills and set up. You most probally would kept up with the MTX-3 and 705 and the VRR EVO.

Dont worry man you got a good car.
I started with a Nommal TG10. and i still have it for just bashing around my back yard.



BUT THEN THE MTX-3 COMES OUT ON RACE DAYS


LOL CHEERS

what engine do you have in your TG10R??????

Hi Profoxcg,

If you are looking for Hop Ups, I do have a Tamiya TG10R Ball Diff for sale on ebay (3160035641). You can use it for either the front or rear.

since I was a little low on cash and I am starting out, I bought an OS 12 Cv-R ...

I guess its an ok engine? I need to read up on what makes a good engine and number or ports and all. I am very new to nitro.

Thanks for the offer, but I am looking for alum parts for my suspension. I feel the plactic is frail. I want to build an enduro car. (this is Y I bought a nitro car, my LHS runs enduros every 2 months almost)

Alum parts are heavier than plastic and will bend in a bad crash. The right kind of plastic will work better and are more durable. I don't have the TG10R but I gotta tell you all the top cars (MTX, VOneRR, 705) have plastic suspension arms.

If you upgrade your engine, you WILL be competitive with all the other cars. Shaft drive has some advantages over belt drive and it's up to you to take advantage of it.

If you raced Mini-Z, you should know that cars matter, but driving matters more.

No i already got one ive had it for a while now.

The OS 12Cv-r is a good engine it is pretty quick.
But instead of spending lots of money on Alum i think you should just save up for something like a NOVAROSSI, RB or even Nova JP.

i have a brand new STS D5 in the mail right now. It should be hear on Monday. That only cost me $145US and there ment to be just as good as the Top Engine Brands. Maybe you should think of getting one of these and a TC3 Exgaust.

Then you will be very competive.

CHEERS

Pull start engine is not suitable for use at TG10R. The fuel tank obstructs the use of pull start engine and rear exhaust engine. So, the design of TG10R limits the choice of engine. I power my TG10R with a .15 black head O.S. side exhaust engine which run so fast that can race with some touring with 0.12 rear exhaust engine.
