hey guys im planing to rebuild A 80% DF01 chassis up into a rally car... one day...

Just for the tamiya fans, this is a highly modified TL01 crawler ive made. some of the ideas might work with the TA01

Its now sporting 4 wheels steering, soon to be swithcable (on/off/reversed)

It's a common problem and as far as I know, can't be fixed. Mine had the same problem, you just have to be easy on the throttle when accelerating.

Gave the DF-01 a quick run, didn't last long as I forgot the ESC isn't protected against water...

When I saw the Amarok body had been released I grabbed one immediately. However the wheelbase was too long so I purchased a TA-02 chassis tub (shorter) and it matches up almost perfectly.
