  newb to drifting TT02R
Posted by: lilws6 - 07-23-2017, 09:39 AM - Forum: Tamiya - Replies (5)

hello all I decided to get into drifting and at the price point of the tt02 i decided to go that route. plus i always like tinkering with stuff and have seen quite a few things done to these "budget" cars. My plan with the car was to get back into racing and also use it on the side to help me learn drifting a bit. So i'll eventually have two setups for the car when its all done. A drift body and set of wheels and tires to play with and then my VTA body and wheels and tires to go race with. First things i did to the kit to help were replaces the front control arm pivots with the metal ones. I've read that seems to help with steering and durability. Then i made up some rear camber links to replace the stock non adjustable ones. I plan on doing the same to the front but the parts i used in the back arn't readily available so i'm working on an alternative for making that work.  Not really sure what i'm going to do for diff setup yet as i want to race and drift. for drifting i want a front oneway and a locked rear but for racing i don't feel the locked rear would work to well. might just have to experiment. Are there any other front oneways available for this car other than the tamiya one? Motor wise im running a 17.5 to make it legal for racing but is that enough to make this drift well? Or am i going to want to bump it to say a 13.5 i'm open to any help i can get at the moment as i know absolutely nothing about setting up for drifting yet. If i do manage to get better at drifting i'd like to get a drift specific chassis in the future but for now she's going to be doing double duty ;) heres a few quick pics i snagged while building it.

Hello all. Just dropping in to introduce my self. Decided i wanted to try out drifting for the first time so i've been slowly building up a Tamiya tt02R that i can use for Vintage trans am racing at my local hobby town and then switch out some wheels and body and go play in a parking lot some where and learn to drift. So far its almost completely setup for VTA with the body and wheels still waiting on tires to be available. So that brings me to the mission of finding a drift body i like and some wheels and tires :) heres some quick pics of it so far ;)

I am seeing a lot of useless post lately, most do not contribute anything at all or just repeat something that was said. Then in the signature of below the post there are link to casinos and other things that are hidden with black on back writing or something similar.

  Acuvance Airia Tao 2 , and a burned smell help!!
Posted by: DRprojex - 07-16-2017, 03:07 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Hi guys, 
I'm new to the forum and I have search the forum but couldn't find anything. Please help me or give me some tips if possible. It's gonna be quite Long so thanks for reading! 


Was using Luxon agile 10.5, tachyon Airia on an re r hybrid chassis (36pinion 70T spur) for two months while tuning the chassis with tao smart card.


Recently bought the brain unit Tao 2, attached it and went to do the ESC initial setup again. Both ESC and Tao 2 version updated. During initial setup, ESC Leds flash meaning sensor wire not connected properly.  Reconnect the sensor wire after a few tries and finally got the Esc setup completed. When I went and check the transmitter settings , I forgot to put the reverse throttle setting back to normal when doing the initial setup. 


Did initial setup again with the throttle setting on transmitter set to normal. Please note that all motor wires or connected thru out so polarity is correct. 


Pull the trigger on the transmitter and the motor spins half a Sec and stops. A click sound and a constant high pitch sound generated from the motor. Went to reverse and it spins!!
Pull the trigger again, not a single movement just the above describe sounds.


Then a strong burned smell from the motor!! FML!! Motor is hot and Esc a little Hot but I can still rest my hands on them. 


My question is

the faulty sensor wire causing the motor to burned overload when trigger pull?

But why I can go into reverse??

Is my ESC gone as well?

Please anybody , help me! Getting a multimeter tomorrow, but seems like motor and sensor wire needs to change. But I was hoping how can I test my Esc to know that it's good ?


Thanks a billion in advanced.

  Window trim after painting
Posted by: Marshy - 07-07-2017, 09:33 AM - Forum: Paint, Decals, and Techniques - Replies (1)

Hello, I recently painted my first drift car. Used Tamiya PS16 which looks as spectacular as I'd imagined. Unfortunately, the Turnigy RX-7 body I bought came with stickers for windows which I proceeded to do a terrible job of placing.  The flat stickers did not place well over the rounded surfaces and bunched up in places.  I want to remove them and start from scratch.

What I'm wondering is, what is the best way to paint the front and rear window trim?

Should I buy some acrylic paint and take my time with a brush? Should I Mask it off really well and hit it with black primer and clear coat?

Or should I just try and find another sticker sheet?

I would also like to redo the tail lights. For this I was thinking paint with brush over body, then mask off and hit it with VHT nightshade. Thoughts?

Thank you for your time.

  My rwd settings guide
Posted by: littlemonsta - 07-06-2017, 01:01 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (14)

I just wanted to share my settings and guide how I set it up.

Epoxy/cement surface

Camber angle.
I have always adjusted this based on 45 degree angle turn of trailing(edit) wheel. Camber adjusted to 0 degrees. This is adjusted with battery and body shell.

Rear camber:

I've gone for active camber. It is set to -1 degree. Camber will adjust according to body roll.

Kpi / caster
I run maximum kpi my knuckles allow. Caster is also at maximum allowable. Effects: higher kpi makes car slower but more controllable in corners. If car is too slow during a corner reduce kpi settings. Caster is the cars rolling ability.

Toe settings / ride height spring settings

My front ride height changes according to acceleration and deceleration. Nuetral to slight Toe in during acceleration and toe out during braking and low speeds.

Ride height is adjusted with body shell and battery. 5mm at lowest height in front and back. Springs are 31 mm springs. Due to my setup my springs are softer in front and harder in the rear. This is to accommodate the heavier rear.

Damper settings.
My damper location is the closest hole to the chassis in front. Rear damper location is also closest to chassis. However I do not use standard holes that come with the lower arms in the rear. My dampers sit almost upright.

Effects: I chose this because I wanted more shift from side to side. Chassis continues to be angled during a corner. I've got test this again in more detail. However I feel this help the car to come out faster of a corner. This setting may cause the car to have less reaction

Damper oil.
For many months I was using mixture of oils. I was running an average of 50cst to 100 cst.
This makes the car actually looser. Depending on the surface of the track whether it's bumpy or not will determine what oil to use.

On uneven epoxy, I use 300 -400 CST oil. I find that it helps to grip more. If you don't want so much grip or on a smoother surface you can reduce the thickness of the oil.

FDR
I run at 6.9 FDR.

Effects : I run at this due to the lower wheel spin. It takes a longer time to hit top speed, your acceleration is lower. Lower acceleration is more controllable wheel spin. Less wheel spin is a faster car.

Also the other reason I can run the car for 2 hours without battery change which is great.

Radio EPA/ dual rate
I run my EPA anywhere from 55℅ th to 85℅ depending of the factors of cars around me. Faster cars I use a lower EPA setting and slower cars a higher EPA setting.

Dual rate, I cap the max throttle at 90℅. The car cannot go more then 90℅. So my actual car speed is lower with EPA and dual rate combination.

Curve settings.
None. Mine is linear.

Will update more later. I will post pics later of what I mean.

I've started a project converting my Eagle R31-16fm into a rear-motor M chassis.....just because  Lol

"M" = m-chassis
"RM" = rear motor

First off, the R31-16fm is a front motor chassis, which isn't really that ideal for RWD drifting since there ends up being less weight over the rear wheels causing the chassis to struggle to get up to speed and drift with others, unless you put grippier rear tires.....and front motor chassis are more suited for CS drifting (from my experience). I also want more variety during drift sessions so drifting an M-chassis would at least provide that.

Now, Tamiya's M-chassis in particular have adjustable wheelbases since they make bodies of different wheelbases (210, 225 and 239mm). I will also make the wheelbase adjustable. It will pretty much be a 2-piece chassis where the upper and lower decks overlap and mount using hardware. This way it will maintain rigidity. The front half will mount below the rear half to prevent snagging on track curbs and debris. And making it rear motor putting all the drivetrain in the rear makes this possible since there's no long any drivetrain parts that span the length of the chassis.

Ok, enough babbling. Here's some pics.


Comparing the chassis to a Tamiya MX-5 body to get an idea of how much I need to shrink the chassis.

Checking clearance with motor assembly. Clears the spur gear and the rest just fine.

Here's a pic of the motor assembly separate. I'm using the stock 18t center pulley with a TA05 36t diff pulley, and the belt is a 50t with a tensioner.

I thought I was gonna have to custom fab my own lower control arms, but after digging around my spare parts and looking at parts online, I discovered I can use some existing parts and modify them. The rear arms are Tamiya TA04/05 front arms. I plan on using Sakura D4 front arms for the fronts.

The C-hub area is where I can mount a rear upright. There was already a tiny hole right where I needed it to be to insert the pin so I used it to drill out.

Shaved the rest of the arm for clearance for upright.

Test fitted the Eagle upright. Will be using Tamiya 2 degree uprights.

I just so happened to have 30mm cvds in my parts bin (lucky). I know the diff cups are damaged. Might grind them out so I can use cushions.

I'm using the stock deck just for mock-up. I will be making a custom adjustable deck. And if you're wondering about the O-rings for the turnbuckles, they're simply there just to reduce wiggling since they do move quite a bit.

Both arms done and mounted.

Nice and flush. I actually lucked out on the arm length. Those are HPI Cup Racer MX60 6mm wheels.

In short, this proves that it's very doable to reverse this chassis into a rear-motor layout. I'm just taking it further with doing an M conversion.

More updates to come  =)

  Spinning out
Posted by: Drift12345678 - 06-25-2017, 04:54 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (9)

hello everyone so after building my d4 rwd it keeps spinning out. I am running it on very smooth concrete. I am using the stock tires,-4 front camber,-1 in the back, 8 mm in the front hiegt and 6 mm in the back. That is my current setup.

Do you suggest a different setup?
Should I get a gyro?
 Thanks for help and viewing
