RE: Tamiya TB-01 Resource Thread!
Hey LB! Where did you get your Tb-01? I have the German Rally champion 99". I love this chassie. Im Going to order like 1 per month for the next 3 or for months, at $110.00 it can not be beat. I agree with you that the alloy motor mount is outragious , price including shipping is like $32.00. Here is what I plan to do , Im am going to only run the stock silver can motor with the smallest pinion gear.Since spare parts are not being made Im going to use this baby as a trail rc car, (not driving it to hard) in order to preserve the body. Im getting into rally rc cars, I even won a NIB Losi Rally Weapon which I am assembling as I write this.I paid like $132.00 including shipping. Go on youtube and do a search on rally rc cars and youll see videos of guy's running behind their Rally cars on a true to scale rc course, totally awsome rc action, I just discovered this type of rc racing like a week ago so be sure to look at these videos. I too also love the driver fig of the TB-01.
