If you want to go full on, get a real TC. If you want to embarrass people with more money than skill, TT 02 is very capable in the right hands, just don't go down the rabbit hole with mods.

USGT tires are 24 wide but easily fit on 26mm wide as well. In fact they work better on the 26mm wide wheels because the tires are NOT belted and balloon over time. The 26 mm wide wheels reduce the...

It's a 2005 NSX like body. At least it looks like a real car. Actually looks fairly scale too.

I don't think they exist for that body.

If they were available they would be listed as an option in the body instructions.

Nothing touches 571/572 on carpet. Thwt wear long and produce great grip.

I have tried Volante, team powers and sweep V6, all are good but not as God as the 571/572 combo.

I asked the same question a few pages/weeks ago.

Volante tires solve the low pro tire part of the look but bodies and wings (especially the rear) need to be addressed. I was hoping something...

There is some serious lacking in body diversity in this class. Seems to only be a few muscle cars when in fact there were tons of European vintage cars and Japanese that have raced in the series. For...

European RC take their tracks so much more seriously than we do in NA. Euro full committment on track design and investment. No playing around, they do it right!

Now that the 2021 season has come to an end, where are all the 2022 wing and body combos?

We need new shaped wings and bodies with the new 2022 ruleset. Anyone heard or seen anything promising?

Leave it be, if we went scale the cars would be horrible to drive. Besides, really F1 should go back to v10 era dimensions any way which is what are cars are scaled after. Hydride turbos suck!

X-ray gear diff on black carpet. What you guys using for diff fluid?

Manual says 5000-10000 car dependent on traction. I've heard some people use 50000 (sounds nuts to me).

Used to be a looonnng time ago. 1031/1032. All the other Tamiya tires aren't much good. Stick with CRC/Schumacher. They purchased Shimizu's molds and compounds. Still the best tires, none of the...
