Inspired from RE-Xtreme's TA06 I have been confirmed about my thought's that the TA06 should be a nice chassis for drift. Well.... turns out that it is great, more controllable than my Whitewolf (which is actually very smooth to drive). Though the price with all the Overdose Hopups is not really low and I still have a plastic chassis :lol:
But I really like the various lines I can drift with that chassis - an absolute advantage for competitions. From the Overdose steering I'm very very impressed, works with really no slackness, compared to Whitewolf. VDF and DRB.

Still to come are front stiffeners and rocker arms from Overdose. Also I'm going to increase the CS - ratio up to 1.6 to 1.7

I've been watching this car for some time, it seems to perform really well. Does the rear motor weight overthrows from time to time?

<3 those Overdose hop ups. :P

Love Overdose too :up:

Compared to VDF & DRB the weight distribution is almost the same - I have about 50/50%. My friends VDF has 52% front 48% rear. In fast weight transistions the TA06 is incredible stable and controlable, even better to handle than my Whitewolf and my former heavy modified VDF (active hobby chassis).

use another belts and pulleys :P
but I prefer to stay with the ratio between 1.3 and 1.65 as I use the TA06 for competitions. For crazy angle I use my Active Hobby conversion for TA06 ;)

Yea. Not many people realize this, but front mid motor chassis are more or less 50/50 weight distribution. Battery still weighs more than the motor. No matter where the motor is, rc drift chassis are so light, you can easily balance them as desired.

Thats the way.

I see the tech chassis conversion in silver

They really are nice chassis to drift.

I loved mine, but the rear gear case is a pain in the a** for maintenance.
