good starter chassis for cs without modding

Postby rcdrift_11 » Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:41 am

hey guys, you may have heard this a heap but i want to know what is the best chassis to start with for cs without having to do any modding to the gears? I currently own a tt01 but am having troubles with the active gears and i have meshed them a few times. I was thinking about a yokomo drift package from race and drift japan as its affordable and easy to get cs gears off the net,but because im inn australia its gonna be hard to get parts (especialy wher i live) so i will have to order a lot of parts off the internet.

I did a bit of searching and am also looking at the tb03 as there are gears to fit it on r&d japan and it should be easier to get parts i suppose. any suggestions will be much appreciated!

cheers cohen

I prefer belt driven chassis they are a lot easier to use especially changing gears. I have two tamiya vdf and MST ms-01d. Both are great the MST comes with everything you need to CS put 80%. The vdf is easy to CS also just have to order the kits for it. The spare parts prob I have the same prob and I live in the US. Its a pain but thats the nature of the hobby.

other than above 2, OTA R31 also worth looking at. The japs are also starting to mod the TA06.


TB03 is not a natural CS candidate, too much gearbox hacking required

I'd also suggest the OTA R31 - front motor, lots of option parts, good entry price for what you get. The Japanese are quite fond of it.

/realizes Australia has a different set of colloqial terms which are acceptable to them. But also not a fan of racial slurs, just saying. :)

i did look into the OTA R31 but find it real hard to look for parts? it is a realy nice chassis though and i reckon would be great. also the vdf, where can you get the cs kits? i looked on ebay and found a few and on R&D they sell ta05 cs ktis but not sure if they fit the vdf?

If you want cheap and easily accessible parts - Tamiya is your choice. VDF is pretty straightforward to CS with tons of manuals and build threads on the interwebs
