A day rally driving at Segar

Post by laneboysrc on Tue 23 Dec 2014 - 19:51

Hi everyone,

finally got some RC time today. I took two of my rally cars and went to Segar.


(click on images to enlarge)

Brought the Tamiya DF03-RA with the Lancia Delta Integrale body and the TT02 with the Rally Legends Fiat body.





What a blast to drive. The car is very eager to turn corners, always happy to get the tail out. Very lively and fun.

I am using the Speedmind RT-28 Medium rally tires on the DF03-RA. They can be found at RCMart.com. They are much better than the Tamiya ones, yet cheaper.
So far they have about 5 hours on the clock; in about 1 or 2 hours more they will be slicks and need replacement.







The Tamiya TT02 is built with high ground clearance for rally purpose, as outlined in the manual. The car is stock except for alu shocks, bearings and the high speed gear set. Both the TT02 and the DF03-RA are running a 10.5T Trackstar motor. Since the TT02 came with a brushless-capable speed controller this was a great bargain of a car -- less than half the cost of the DF03-RA.



Initially I ran the TT02 on old Tamiya Rally block tires. The car was understeering quite a bit. For the second battery I switched to the Speedmind tires and the car was much more fun to drive: less understeer and nice drifts.
The shock oil I used was too stiff so the car bounced to much. When I came back I changed the oil, we will see next time how it goes.



The TT02 held up well despite being a basement-bargain car. The only issue I had was with the ball connectors for the shocks coming out of the lower suspension arms. The plastic of the arms may be too soft for the constant pounding of the suspension. 3 out of 4 corners needed fixing within two hours of driving. At home I swapped to ball connectors with longer screw studs; we will see if that fixes the issue.
The drive train held up very well with no signs of excessive wear. Pretty impressive for low-end plastic in a brushless rig.

All in all I got a solid 4 hours of rally driving under the belt today, depleting four batteries. Fun, yet pretty exhausting.
We need more Rally events!

Merry Christmas, Werner
