Well, since most of the TA02's here are being turned into trials machines, i decided to make a road car out of mine! :banana:

Ansmann Road Tyres ( Looks great ! )
HPI Mesh Rims
Tamiya Low-Friction Dampers

That's all for now, and comin up:

13t Motor
Ali Motor mount
Hardened propshaft
Carbon Chassis conversion!

Any other performance enhancing mods, no :blingbling: in here!

and to avoid the dreaded icon, here's a piccy:

That chassis looks hauntingly familiar somehow :banana:

I take it from your sig it's to have a BMW body? :nice:

hey dremelit, my TA-01 is in need of a properly painted body that doesn't sit sky high (the Saleen sits so high because of the springs I've got. how the hell do you lower those things anyway?) or have chipping non-lexan paint on it. I take it that your austin-healey 3000 fits that description? you wouldn't happen to have an unpainted one or know where I might find one, would you?

I had to pull a lot of strings and call in a few favors to get that one. They're not exactly easy to find. If you know somebody in the Austin-Healey Club of America, they can check around and see if one's still available. They were made around 1990 by the Chicago chapter. You'd be looking at around $50.

not bad.... its a strange concpet round here tho using a TA02 for onroad....:thinking:

btw I think you need new rear body posts too judging by that pic. the adjustable upper arms, and tie rods would be good mods if you want to tune the suspension as would the spring set, also I dunno if they made a "race steering set" hop-up for these cars but it is somewhat vital on stuff like the TA03 and more modern tamiya cars, its alu bellcranks that take dual ball bearings each for much smoother operation...

Marcus you cheecky little git, you sent them to me! :D

Spoon, i just put them on for the pic, it's nowhere near had it's share of hop-ups yet! And i'd also like customs to explain the rearbodypost, bar-stewards!

Drem, yes, a M3 in Green to be precise, like my mums!
