The TA-05 front end aren't design to run any negative camber, so I trimmed up the H carriers to clear the lower suspension arms. Also shorten all the upper suspension linkages.

Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro with 7700KV motor.











The ESC was a bit too big for the chassis, so I had to mount it up side way and taped the switch right above the ESC for easy access.





Receiver is an Airtronics FHSS-2 3 channel.



Servo is a Traxxas 2075 with new servo gears.





It's power by the same Gens Ace 3S Li-Po that I used on my SCX10.







Here a quick video of it in action.

I'm sorry if I sound ignorant but why are the tires grinded like that?

The sidewall looks like that when I got them, they are the Sushi drift tires, very cheap, so don't expect them to be high quality anyway. However, I did sand down the sidewall some more. 1.) To get more of a stretched tire look. 2.) Try to smooth out the uneven spots. But they still looks the same. I guess it's just the material of the tires.

Sidewalls are like that (atleast at this scale, unless your are going for that look) to keep the car from catching the pavment during a sideways drift.

Pretty cool looking kit. I've been dying to build another onroad car. Probably want to get a rally car or something. Hahah.

Looks cool, I allways liked the look of the 240Z. I am working on a rally 240Z now.

One of the reason I sand down the tires on an angle like that is to prevent it caught on something while drifting. Most importantly, I can get the wheels closer to the wheel well.

Rally car should be fun, looking forward to get one too.
