TA-03F-PC-CS

Postby philchrome » Sun Feb 28, 2010 2:23 pm

Hi all, first of i would like to say WoW what a geat forum :mrgreen: plenty of knowledge and great people full of infomation ;) ;) ..

Now after speaking to a good friend of mine and coming to a few decisions in my life lol ive decided to build myself a full on CS chassis using a TA-03. The chassis in question will be running quite a few hop ups but some which i will also rule out as i know that they make the chassis worse by adding them, so if your familiar with the tamiya TA-03 you will know which these are.

Enough of my old waffle and lets get to it.

This is a whip at the moment due to waiting on parts to arrive but its being built as time goes by.
First the front end with some minor mods to the gearbox: ;)

Manta ray ball diff for the front:
Image
The front end complete:
Image
Image
Image
Chassis plates to be replaced with a nice rare Tobee Craft one (thanx dustin) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Modified tamiya hop up steering linkage:
BEFORE::
Image
AFTER::

More will follow shortly guy's ;)

I tried this out last night indoors, and i must say 17/14 is definatly not enough. i need to find a 21-22/11-12 to try out as i reckon that is the way to go :up:

Wiper/s.
Front mesh in black.
Lower front spoiler in satin black.
Front and rear lights.
Roll cage.
Wind deflector's.
Rear inner wheel arches :mrgreen:
Exhaust.
Rear bulkhead.
Air dams in front bumper.
Paint rear spoiler gloss black.
Light kit.
Body kit returns.
Possible windows half rolled down.
Front bumper grill returns.
A few more stickers.

Enjoy for now :mrgreen:

Hi all *-| Decided to get back on the body as a few parts for the chassis are still in the post :down: plus once ive got it all built i want to look into a way of creating a greater steering angle by modifiying the gearbox.. Also im in need of some shorter CVD's to gain more front camber, max at the moment is 7 degrees but i want to b able to run more :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Well here's a few pics of the body update..
Things done:-
1, Intercooler recess built up.
2, Lights painted and fitted (rears still to do :wtf: )
3, Exhaust fitted
4, Mesh painted and fitted
5, Air ducts opened up
6, Wipers fitted
7, Lower splitter painted satin black.


Enjoy!
