Lack of Tamiya products?

Dear Banzai,

Me and many other fans of your shop over on Tamiyaclub have noticed the sudden decline in Tamiya products on your website, most notably the disappearance of many Tamiya kits and the...

RE: Diff grease how much?

Ideally you only need smear, as you said before. The grease only works properly if it is like a coating for the gear surface, if you really pack it in there all that will occur is a buildup where the...

RE: Police Car

ABC hobby for the roof light bar. They do various models, ranging from Starsky and Hutch style right up to a full width flasing light bar. Very cool. And cheap!

RE: aluminum rims

Alloy rims are good, and we'd all use them if it weren't for the price tag. They are expensive; so glueing abs to them will be detrimental to their value. If your pockets are deep enough for alloy...

RE: TB-01, TB-02, or TT-01

You will have more fun with the TB02, it's more fun to build, faster and handles better. I find the TT01 a bit of a toy as standard, you need to carry out a lot of work to make it 'fun' to chuck...

RE: The TB-02 or TA-05 = best kit under $150 to go 75+MPH w/ BL & 3s Lipo

Go belt.

There is far less (next to none) friction in a belt driven setup, there is less of a drivetrain to move etc, and no-matter what shaft driven car you get, they are never going to have...

RE: Available Drift Cars

Anything 4wd, hobby spec.

Stick to 1:10 scale electric.

You're in the UK - Stick to Tamiya, easily the best RC supplier over here.

RE: Shelf life of nitro

It depends what it's being used for. If you're a strict racer and use it at the track and need it to be 'high' in power, then consider what GYNAIKAS said.

If you're using it for bashing then...

RE: ONE WAY DIFF!!

TT01 Front one-way is essential for drifting around a tight track, it works like a handbrake and has an immediate effect, unlike braking. For racing, a front one-way will increase the cornering...

RE: ultimate M chassis thread

The new Civic is available from Team Atlas, who make an M-chassis-sized 4wd chassis. It fits perfectly on an M03 though; as you can see:D

I want that Ferrari now....

RE: ultimate M chassis thread

Sun in the UK - I had to be very quick!

I have never tun the M03R, I stole the shocks off it for my TA05 project, kept the aluminium uprights etc. I saw no advantages over the other M03 I have...

I enjoy it, but I will admit to becoming frustrated at times. If you find that you're spending too much time fixing/repairing, get something else to go with it, for exanple, if you have lots of...

RE: Official Tamiya TT-01 Thread

Unfortunately the highlighted items above will clash. In order to fit the prop. joints you need a propshaft from a TB Evo IV, which is slightly longer. The one you bought will not fit.

Otherwise...

RE: time for motor upgrade if possible

Will a 6-cell battery really be able to power a 2.5 to it's potential? Surely it won't be too much different to the 3.5 until you add LiPo?

RE: Finally broke it TAMIYA F350

Jees. How fast were you going exactly?!

I like the look of those aluminium front and rear axles from RC-Channel, but there's another reason not to buy an F-350 - You'll end up out of pocket!

RE: Tamiya FF01 parts?

Haha Lee you mentioned my old workplace, he'll know you linked his site!

The FF01 was a bit unique in it's time, and ultimately not very popular for users (more a collectors car) as the users...

RE: Tamiya Twin Detonator 4WD truck

Hi there,

Firstly, the user 'Guver' may have thrown you off the trail a bit here. The Twin Detonator doesn't have masses of potential, but it's pretty tough and lots of fun. You've already...

RE: Young-guns kit

I'd follow a simple bathtub-shaped chassis. If you just have strong suspension mounts front and rear, the car can be changed using a set of short arms/driveshafts/shocks and longer variants. This way...

RE: What onroad body for best speed handling...

Most people recommend the NSX for handling at speed. Tamiya makes a lightweight version, and it's very detailed too. Another new one which handles well is the new Tamiya Supra GT. I'd recommend...

RE: TOY or sport ? what do you think?

OK, your opinion is fine. Nobody is trying to impose anything on anyone, but some incorrect and out of place comments are being made here.

I'll just throw this out there-
