Best of luck! There is a current 22B body with really good detail, it has separate bumpers that are glued/taped in place, but from local experience DO NOT BUY IT!

They seem to be made of glass. BVRC has first hand experience and it is disappointing to say the least.

Please say it isn't this one. I wanted it because of the light buckets.

PAB-137

*** Yeah if your talking about the wagon body he had then yes its the same company. Guess I'll stick with the HPI 22B since its my only other option.

What?

Are you talking about CVDs? If so then yes. One of the first upgrades I did. It increases steering angle quite a bit and is pretty necessary for the tracks we run.

I installed the 42mm yesterday as well. Guy on RCtech said that he had problems on the TC version with them.. Said they binded.

Glad to know yours are working fine

Just looked through the thread and I installed CVDs on 10/6/2012. I am still running the same ones and have only rebuilt them once. I think all the guys in our CRC series are running CVDs and I have not heard of anyone having issues. The TC. Should be identical so chances are he got a blem version or he is doing something wrong...

Part number for the CVD shafts should be 53501. The rears are a different length, so maybe he accidently got those.

Nope, they were a direct fit.

Default Re: Turtle's Modified XV-01

Ok, so I have pretty much read this thread from start to finish over the last few weeks, and I think I need to by this car. Well, I don't NEED it, rather I WANT it. I am a plank flyer, mainly 30cc and 50cc aerobatic planes, and a few warbirds....technically a lot more difficult to build and fly yet sometimes I just want something to tool around with.
I used to race my TB Evo 4 (I have two of them that are stripped, cleaned and back in their boxes) but since the local track got closed, and we are waiting for a new one to open. I have nothing to tool around with, on the ground. I live in the UAE, and there is no rallying here really, just tons of loose, difficult sand. Its problematic as it gets in everywhere, but its not gonna hurt like snow/water. ...I just want to bash around with it. I had a Traxxas Slash years ago, but it was more headache than it was worth, and without other people to race with...a little superfluous to requirements.

I love Tamiya though, and even just having it on display in my workshop, would be nice. I have a whole bunch of unbuilt stuff, Sand Scorchers, Bruisers and a few collectors things, but I want to just be able to charge a pack, and go out and mess around :-)

I have put a shopping list together from RCmart, in order to minimize shipping costs, I am trying to order from one place, there are no local suppliers. Let me know what you guys think of this list...and suggest what I might still need.

58562 Tamiya 1:10 XV-01 Subaru XV EP - Went for this, as I don't want the Lancia, very nice, but decals are a 'mare, and it wont fit over the bumper.
54453 Tamiya XV-01 Carbon Graphite Damper Stay Rear fits PRO TC - Rather than the extended ones, but if longer shocks would be better, then will think again. Suggest?
54452 Tamiya XV-01 Carbon Graphite Damper Stay Front fits PRO TC - As above
54378 Tamiya XV-01 Slipper Clutch Set - Not sure if this is needed, wont be doing big jumps, if any at all...and cant be bothered with more pinions
54377 Tamiya XV-01 Separate Suspension Mounts (1XM) - Necessary upgrade it would appear
54376 Tamiya XV-01 Separate Suspension Mounts (1XJ) - Necessary upgrade
54379 Tamiya XV-01 Aluminum Suspension Mount (XJ) - Necessary Upgrade
50597 Tamiya Damper O-Ring(RD) - Not sure if they are any worse than the stock ones.
54448 Tamiya XV-01 Reinforced Belt 573mm - Will wear the stock one out first....or before it scraps the pulleys
54454 Tamiya XV-01 Aluminum Steering Brideg fits PRO T TC FF-03 Uprade Set - Could be useful, stronger
42259 Tamiya 5mm Red Gear Differential O-Rings - People say they are better than the stock affairs.
54465 Tamiya XV-01 Spring Set - Hard / Medium / Soft - Necessary?
53989 Tamiya Center Pulley (18T) - these would work better than stock plastics, but may not be as good as the alloy ones, but they are a lot cheaper.

Sweep Green Grease oil For Metal, Shock O-rings 5g #SW0022 - for sealing shock O-rings and diff o-rings
Yeah Racing Titanium Screw Assorted Set with FREE Mini box for Tamiya XV-01 #TS-XV-01 - might be better than the phillips things they come with.

OK, so things I KNOW I am missing, but it's because RC Mart don't have them in stock.

Front CV Joints and shafts - I think I can use the assembly CV Joints and 42mm shafts, is that right?
Shocks - I think the std shocks will work, with the longer ball joint connector, but I would like to have decent travel all the way through the range of the suspension motion

I am compiling some other things I may need, I will edit this post as I go on...

Just build the kit, and include the slipper clutch. As you break things, replace them with the upgrades. I have the Yeah racing kit in both of my xv-01's and haven't broken those yet. It looks like you have a good list here though.

Hey! A reply....there is still life here.

Your advise is good advise, but there is a curve ball here....as mentioned, I live in Dubai, so getting things shipped here is a lengthy process, I don't have the luxury of speedy delivery. My plan is to buy all the parts I need and fit them from the get-go. That way, if anything breaks, I have the luxury of the stock part to use until the next order goes through. Placing orders for individual items is not economically viable, I would need to get a group of parts.

Hey Thump Wallop,

I would go with just the slipper as Ell206 mentioned. The only thing I would buy in addition if I were you would be additional tires, wheels and another bodyset.

As for the other stuff just buy is off ebay in the future.

Finally have a minute to post!

Race #9 of the 2015 CRC series is in the books, a beautiful day and plenty of great racing. Besides the car feeling a little gritty she worked great.

A photo of how our HOON470 track looked after the day of racing.


And me working on my pilots license.


Over 100 races on my car this season, equating to somewhere around 5 hours of competitive driving, plus practice and the car is doing well. Body is pretty rough, but has held up better then anything I have used before.

I have a question for you rally fans....besides the decals that come with some of the body kits, are you having any luck finding scale rally or any other contemporary motorsport decals/graphics from anywhere else?
I'm having trouble finding anything "rally racing like", especially in the usual spots...Tower, Amain etc...
A lot of old drag racing brands and stuff...

Thanks!
Adam

this is a good topic... We should make an official thread for rally decals/etc.

People have their own vinyl cutters...

I often use left overs from other bodies...

Ebay can have good things at times.

Check these places too...

You'll probably get more hits in the the main part of the Rally Section, rather than one individuals thread - but I get of a lot of my custom work done by Carl at - customracingstickers@gmail.com. He's pretty good at designing what you want based off drawings and/or internet images. I've used him 5 or 6 times now. Brilliant work and great pricing. Being custom work, it take a few weeks though depending on what's involved.

Hi guys, sorry to slightly hijack your thread but having read it with great interest I thought you might be a brilliant place to askÖ..
Iím after a bit of help (well quite a lot really). Iím totally new to LiPo, as in never used them before and Iím feeling a bit overwhelmed and confused right now.
Iíve just ordered a XV-01 pro from the US (Iím in the UK) so not got it in front of me to get any measurements. These kits are virtually impossible to track down right now. Anyway heres my story, Iím sure youíll have had experience of (fingers crossed)Ö.
I want to put the following components in the build whatís your feeling on it?

Battery: Turnigy 5200 30c hard case LiPo (donít know if this fits)
Charger: No idea too confused!! please suggestÖÖ
Servo: Savox 1251
ESC/Motor: Castle Combo - Sidewinder 3 - 5700kv

Please could someone tell me what connectors I would need to connect a Turnigy battery to a Castle Sidewinder 3 ESC? I donít think the Castle has anything on its power wires? Do these need to be ordered seperately?
What would be a good charger to compliment this size battery. I doubt Iíll be going above 2S, donít think they (3s hard case) fit the XV so I don't need anything (batteries or charger) too fancy but would like it to be safe and fairly quick without being stupid about it.
One last thing, what sort of run time would one of the batteries give on an XV?

Sorry about asking these questions that must have been asked before (many times probably). I have tried to search for the answers on here and various other sites but though my lack of knowledge I just got more confused!!

There are just so many options for everything.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
