I have thought about this too, but would build a tennis court in the backyard (not this house, next house which should have enough land) and buy the lane barriers like many clubs use to make up a...

The XV01 is primarily a rally car, but there is a touring car version of it too. I don't have one but a lot of people rave about them. They are a lot more expensive than the TT02 though.

Do you run the V5R? Is it that much better than the V4S? They have the V4S for AUD80 vs AUD135 for the V5R - is it worth the extra?

Are they from the DF02 buggies? They look like it. I use them in my TT02B and just needed the diff housing from the DF02 and the outdrives, dogbones etc all worked fine with them. I just had to file...

I've seen a few people mention that the TB05 is a 'failed chassis' (mostly in the TC01 thread) which surprised me, so I thought I would ask the users. It looks like a great chassis to me, how do you...

Interesting, the only TT02SR I've seen are more expensive than the TB05 Pro or TA07 Pro. In my experience of them the TB and TA cars are far better than the TT cars and always the better option.

The XV01 is a great option, especially when comparing them against a TT02SR or TT02RR, as the price difference will be minimal at that point. I've never had one but heard good things about them and...

I forgot about the receiver. I actually put mine on top of the servo. I know its better to have weight down low but they are small and light so I figured it would be ok up there. Then I have a fan...
