Normally if the car doesn't want to return there is a problem with the servo or servo saver. I've had badly-fitting horns cause that to happen in the past. Or steering assemblies that are either too...

If the individual cell voltages are under 3.7v per cell - the battery has ended up over-discharged while in storage.

So treat this one carefully.

First step I would take is to check the...

Very XRAY. 100% sure the reason for the delay is because they canned the previous R12 as soon as the T4'20 came out so that they could copy it more closely. With maybe the opportunity of a small...

Well, one of the principles for those of us that have got involved in the resurgence of the front-wheel-drive class is that it should be more scale - we are fed of of the blob touring cars, and the...

TB05 Pro wasn't $200 dollars at launch. So you're not comparing like for like. TB05 is a (failed) chassis that is now being discounted. TC-01 is brand new.

And if you don't like large injection...

You are 100% wrong here. Like saying "get a torx driver because I think they are better for hex screws than a hex driver is".

Phillips screwdrivers do not fit in JIS screws. They may look like...

JIS is hardly quirky. "Japanese Industrial Standard". But their insistence on buiding their cars to suit their own range of LiFe batteries is very frustrating. I've just been tearing my hair out...

But that's because the TCS is the North American series and they haven't gone with an actual Tamiya motor. Nor do they run actual Tamiya tyres in mini class.

Have you got a link to the body? I don't know of an RC 962 but the 956 is a 1/12th scale body for the RM01 chassis (and perhaps other 12th pan cars).Completely different to a touring car chassis.

To be fair, camber adjustments always affect track width. But adjusting on the lower arm will have a "larger" effect. I'm not a fan of this solution either. You can't isolate camber etc. when the...

I'm sure it will be with angled input gears, which I think Tamiya have done before on other cars.

I may as well add my first impressions.

This feels like a bit of a cul-de-sac for Tamiya.

This is a very nice Formula E model. And a heat of them in different colour schemes on an outdoor track...

If you offset the shorty to the right hand side of the car, you can access the battery terminals AND counterbalance the motor at the same time. Win-win!

Don't agree with that. Like all classes, popularity varies greatly depending on which track you are at.

Currently, my local club has a thriving Mini class full of (mostly) inexperienced racers.

I don't really understand all the hate for touring car that seems to be brewing up. Despite what people say, they are generally really easy to set up - just use the kit settings. They are also pretty...

The mid-frontie issue was cleared up before the ETS season started, so there have been mid-frontie cars running in it.

To make it less extreme, you want the effective...
