Lougc8's Active Hobby FR Build (STR114R) Update pg 8
#1
I might as well start I build thread on this now as parts are slowly coming in and the chassis is starting to take shape. I've been wanting to buy a high end drift chassis like a DIB or MST VIP, but I like the challenge of building something from scratch and customizing it. Prime examples are both my TT01 chassis for CS and RWD. With the Christmas special on this conversion, it was a perfect time for a project with a chassis I've always liked also. I'm a tamiya fan, so this was a great buy for me.

Here's when I received the package and all its contents

The build started bad though and still continues to provide me problems due to quality control.
I had a missing part and part of the bulk head looked terrible.

Well a replacement part quickly came with the great services from Active

Still the replacement part is not perfect, but better.

Then the bearing issue which I'm still waiting for reply from them. Probably due to holidays I haven't gotten a reply yet.

Then my package for more parts come in so time to continue on the build.

With more Active Hobby parts, comes more quality control issue.
[Image: B139E4E9-1B0A-4A50-AC26-66EF89850757-201...7213cd.jpg]
I doubt a replacement or a quick response about this will happen since I bought this from Banzai. Atleast the part works.

This is where we are at now.

I will have to switch th front arms as I didn't realize I installed them the wrong way. Still need to customize the upper arm on the front.

I'm still not done buying Active parts though. I'm looking for their red spur gear holder, but I have a temporary solution if I can't find an Active one in the mean time. There's probably a couple things I can get from them, but those are just bling and essentials is what I need for now. Thanks for the compliments btw guys. Hopefully my package comes in by the end of the week so I can add more parts and finally tackle the upper arm that everyone has been wanting to do with the Y arm setup. If my theory on the upper arm works, its gonna look almost stock and not modified. I'm getting alot of motivation from Piper's build so there's still alot of parts to buy.

AH is currently coming out with a bunch of new Drift Package parts, a Red spur gear holder should be released some time soon.
Looks good so far, too bad about the lower arms though. I've never had any problems with the few AH parts I have :/

Banzai still has some silver rear uprights "in stock". Quotations because you just never know with Banzai :P

Yup I just saw in their blog about the new parts coming out. Man the TT02 is now like their tamiya version of the drift package. Active has everything for it except a carbon chassis. Hopefully the new spur gear comes out soon, it looks smaller also. I'm hoping I get a reply about the lower arm, I contacted active and banzai about them. Hey atleast I can say its a rare part now kinda, since its not that common really to see factory defects lol.
