Blue Bull

Today we went out to the track to find it completely unusable , since some jerk parked a semi truck with trailer on it . so we dropped by the backup location which is so so, also it has  nasty poles and you drop of a curb if you’re not careful (Mojca managed both due to receiver trouble)

it occurred to me that i haven’t posted any pictures of the TA04SS AUDI TT-R DTM yet so here she is . a beauty of a car . Running a sport tuned and 25t steel pinion, otherwise stock.

Enjoy the blue one , its yellow twin is still in painting.


TrackDay 27.05.2012

spent 6 hours at the track today . Fantastic, we’ve got access to power now so charging is a go . just need two more lipos to bridge the charging time .

Cars used : TA02 BMW 318 STW, TA03F Audi Quattro STW, TA04SS Audi TT DTM, M02 Alfa Romeo Giulia  Junior 1300, TT01E Cusco Subaru.

The Ta02 went much better today than the last time , odd thing is i didn’t change a thing . maybe i’ve got used to the worn tires. the shell is cracked a bit but nothing major , will be shoegooed soon, also the lack of front bumper really shows. The 53145 Hop up bumper is hard to get . The Ta02 could keep up with a carbon brushless car which was clearly faster when i tried it , so the problem was in the driver, who also talked all the time 😉 nevertheless a excellent performance for the old girl.

The Ta03F , with new rebuilt shocks is much more balanced now , also needs a front bumper , but i managed not to crash it until then, so far so good . it ran without a hitch.

The TA04SS, ran superbly , had to tighten the pinion (thread lock on the way ) I also broke a servo saver somehow, but before than i manage to thrash the other two faster cars properly , the short wheel base works really well for the technical local track here .  Also the Audi looks ace .

The M02 was hard to drive, the back kept coming out every time  you are not careful with the throttle , it needs a bit more tweaking and proper shocks (also on the way). i need to tweak the brake power on the ESC as its too much .

The TT01e who Mojca was driving was fine until the spur gear went kaputt when a pebble got in somehow, replacement on the way with a steel pinion. Every time i look into the TT01E im impressed how well it performs for such a cheap kit . All you need is extra bearings and you are good to go for starters.

she still has it 🙂

The instagram double

Also on the spending money that i did not planing to spend front , something really special is on the way in the mail from Japan and Norway, its a limited re release but its not a Bruiser, more to follow soon 🙂

8 rings to rule them all

The slovenian government is 30 euro richer my 120 euro total 58300 Tamiya TA-04SS ABT Audi TT-R DTM  is here. Price wise its still a great price and the chassis being the short variant is also special. Did i mention you get two body shells for the price of one !!!  I will probably start building it tonight .
