I've had this kit for awhile and i have been running it the way it was til i recently got re-hooked into Drifting!

Countersteer drifting that is very happy

So onto the re-build that is!

First challenge after installing the Tamiya FRP conversion was the battery holder .... the old 1996 technology didnt cater to the beefed up 5200mah lipos of today ....

Thanks to jebjeb and Jay for the odd off tree parts they had i was able to come up with this custom stock looking battery holder set-up

The OD pulleys were a pain to source out ..... but it had to be heavily modded to fit its purpose ....

20T 21T and 10T pulleys fresh from the oven

after they have been bored, lathed and tapered!!!

a comparison of the stock Tamiya 15T pulley beside my custom one off 20T pulley ...... can anyone say 'original'??? very happy

Rear 10T installed

Front 21T squeezed in tight

Strawb's 1996 Tamiya TA-03F Pro 110% Overdrive Img-2032


this thing was crazy to drive ..... i switched bact to a 20T infront maintaining the 10T in the rear to have a 2.0FCD plus i added 3* of camber just to see how it would handle ....

Tamiya Hard white springs in front and 'ginnackle's' soft red springs in the rear with HPI 5wt shock oil ..

Strawb's 1996 Tamiya TA-03F Pro 110% Overdrive Img-2033



still a lot of practice ..... but its getting there very happy

I'm back up 110% .... After testing the 20T front pulley ... I didn't feel that much difference which can't be tuned with the 21T ....

I'm gonna knock my head getting used to this ...

Its really not that simple to get the pulleys ....plus it was a risk on my end that the T's won't match ....

My caliper skills did work out pretty ok very happy

Having the tensioners under the belt or on the teeth wear it out fast and add more drag on the drive train wink
