I've always loved the tamiya onroad cars, ever since I had an original ta01 way back in the day.

Stock can is probably about right with a good 2s battery. I transferred one of my castle 6900s into my RS4 Pro2 a few weeks back. It actually couldn't reach top speed because the tires would balloon badly.

A small 3S pack and some gearing would fix that. :wink:

Ok guy's this is not going to be a speed demon. :mrgreen: I will run it once summer gets here, BUT I do not want to tear up the body on it so it will be simply something to cruise around with.

LOL, I don't think I will be doing any jumps like that Andy. The body cost more than the chassis I am building under it to replace it.

Well, I ordered some TT-01 dog bones and well, they are the right length, but they are double the thickness and are not even close to fitting in the drive cups. Back to the drawing board I guess. Anyone here have any other ideas on a dog bone that would work with the TL-01?

Stock TL-01 dog bone is on the left. I need between 30-34mm to make it work.

I thought TL-01 dogbones were 39mm ?

The later dogbones are all metal, albeit carry the same 50883 part number.
TG10 chassis uses the same dogbones

There was/is a set of universals for the TL-01 - part 53418

Apparently TA04 universals will also work with the TL-01

I was told that the one on the left is not stock but a Race Prep aluminum dog bone. a set of 4 came with the TL-01 when I got it years ago. I need bones that are shorter.

I ordered part number 9805583 Dog Bone set for M chassis cars. It took me forever to find the length but it turns out that these are 31mm.

Ah it pays to read the whoel thread, i missed the non standard dogbone info in the opening post !

I have a set of M-03 universals - could check the lengths on those if you want ?
