    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.

    Looks like you need to get a TB-01 then.. ha! It comes w/ the upper dust shield and all the opening it has the "dust sponge" to prevent stuff from going in!!

    Interesting that the older style touring car box is quite a bit bigger than the current Tamiya setup.. (TB-02 box next to it for comparison!)

    RE: Tamiya TB-01 Resource Thread!

    Hey LB, ok for one the TB-01 has metal spur gears, real rally proven debris and dust cover and not to mention the steel drive shaft. And I beleive That it has thicker plastic C hubs and other suspension parts and it has the center chassie brace , all of these things make for a sturdier more ridged chassie.

    I like the dust cover and dust sponge in the TB-01 rally.

    The Cayenne has larger tires, more ground clearance, longer wheelbase (I think)..

    Depends on how rough the area you run them in, I guess.. I am sure each one would have its pros and cons.. !!

    RE: Tamiya TB-01 Resource Thread!

    I here you bro!![8D] I have both and I like them both. we had better stock up while we can. like you said earlier in this thread , (They just dont make them like this anymore , with driver fig) I plan on buying one per month for the next few months , thats if they last that long. Its sad that Rc companies dont build true rally racers like this , that is why I appriciate Tamiya so much .
