Wow, that's some great info OS. Wish I still had my TA02, I loved it. It was stolen a few years back along with some rims and bodies that are no longer available, and all my equipment.

Just to add a little, the short knuckles you spoke of are the standard hub knuckles for the TA03. The TA02W were made with shorter suspension to compensate for the wider offset front rims and the really wide offset 31mm rear wheels. It's amazing how crazy it can get to mix and match and create a whole new suspension. The TL01 Long Arm conversion is also very handy...I installed it on the front of my CC01.

Just my 2 cents.

Tamiya mixed and matched so many times over the years, it's hard to keep track of what was where.

You mean this suspension? I don't have the heart to rip it off my TL though it's just sitting on the shelf collecting dust.


Although it's basically a TA04/5 TB02/3 set-up...with a little parts research, should be able to track down the parts seperate. Those long arm conversion kits are PRICEY! Paid out the nose for mine.

While I'm rambling on...and speaking of TL suspensions, I grafted a TL01B suspension on my CC chassis... who knew the CC make a cool 2.2 rig? One of these days I'll get off my duff and finish it.

Yup, that's it. Here's what I did...

http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/sho...cc-01+wrangler

I also put it on my TL01, and it's doing the same...sittin on the shelf (or boxed) with an unfinished Subaru body. My TA03F is also sitting, waiting for me to finish the Skyline body. I should do a couple pics of them and post them up.

I remember that truck - what's the width difference, if any from swapping those arms in? Can see the geometry is far better.

Lol - my TL is sitting with an unfinished Celica rally body. Must be a TL01 thing.

No noticable difference.

I mounted the shocks to the inner mounting points on the arms...gives it more down travel and softens the front end a little. I also swapped in the TL01 shafts. Nice thing about this mod, it lets you use Hi-lift aluminum hubs/knuckles. The inner hinge pin is smaller, so I beefed it up with brass tube. I also made adjustable upper links for it. Right now it has TLT hubs, the ally ones went on something else.

Only reason I mention these things is for others that may want to modify theirs the same way.

If you are looking for tough front CVDs the 3Racing Sakura CVDs fit great. I have a super heavy CC01 and kept twisting front dog bones till I found these.
