Default CC-01/XC owners.... GPM Parts, Please read.

I know this doesn't contain any real "tech" but since this is a closer net group of users in this part of RCC, I wanted to have every CC-01/XC chassis user to help me get GPM to produce nifty aluminum parts. I have already sent them a email about wanting to see aluminum upgrades as well as important steering replacement parts made in aluminum!

I have gotten a response back and they said they would look into the CC-01/XC based platforms BUT I want everyone to send them a message to think about making steering parts!! If someone can do it, I'm sure GPM can.

Go to this page, fill out the info and make sure you let them know that the CC-01 is worth their time to produce parts! I want a steering system!

http://gpmracing.com.hk/catalog/order.php

Make sure you let GPM know that the CC-01 rig is popular enough to make parts for!!!



So far here's where we sit...

(thanks constantmotion, for nice snappy of the list)

Thanks guys! I really hope they start to make anything for the CC-01/XC chassis vehicles. Even if it's just stock replacement parts for bling, it'll be options for us to choose from. Plus, plastic parts suck.

Got this email from them tonight.....

Quote:
Thank you for your enquiry to us.

In these days, we have received a lot of enquiries about Tamiya CC-01, now we are waiting for the car to arrive in our office and then we will transfer it to our own factory to make options. The steering knuckles, assembly, shocks will be fast to come.

We hope the car will be arrived to us within this week, and so we can get started as soon as possible and then we hope to have some options out at the end of August.

If you have more ideas to us of what are great to make first or special design of any parts out of original design, please feel free to send to me.

Recently, we have parts for the Tamiya Land Cruiser CR-01, do you play this car as well ? I attach to you here pricelist and photos of the parts we make and we have a lot more to come for this model soon !!
:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P:-P

I got the same email. someone please forward them the bearing race steering mod so they can produce lots of kits. My servo mod may be too much for them/most owners.

metal trans and diff gears!
metal lower link kits!

Thank you for your reply Clara.
I do not drive the cr-01. All my trucks are custom, but I have recently discovered the cc-01 and absolutely love it. So scale and capable with only a few flaws.

The weak parts of the cc-01, and areas where there is the greatest market for replacement upgrade parts are few but significant.

First, The steering is horribly sloppy. If replacement parts could be fabricated that eliminated the slop it would be great. This would mean new bell crank possibly with bearings and new linkages to the knuckles. The knuckles also have a great deal of slop in them so that would be great.

Second, the rear links are very flexible and weak. If you came up with a replacement aluminum kit, that were round like typical links, that would stiffen up the rear quite a bit.

Additionally, many owners add a chassis lift. You could make a kit, including all the 11 spacers one would need (thickened washers really) of 3-5mm each that would be useful.

Also useful would be slightly longer A-arms so that owners could add longer shocks and get more lift and more travel at the front, which is a limiting factor.

Thank you for your consideration.

Regards,

Dear Mr...,

Thanks so much for your detailed explanation. I will let you know when the parts actually released. If I have any questions, I should ask you at once.

This is awesome news. it's not often that a company will listen to a handful of people. yet to say they're tooling up and will have option parts within what looks like 60 days, amazing. I have some GPM parts for my other vehicles and I like them. I like their Ti. stuff too. w00t
