A little Drifting vid 岡山

I’ve put the TB-03 VDS back to stock in the rear diff. So it’s running 50/50 now.
Took it down to the track to play around and make a little video.

今日は岡山市の百間川のサーキットに行きました。
ドリ車とF1で遊びました。
タミヤのTB−03VDS。と F104W

one camera, lots of driving and a little editing later brings this to the table.
the camera is a GOPRO HD hero.

Drift Diffuser

Was a little bored tonight watching an old movie on TV and decided to have a go at knocking up a diffuser for the rear of the drift car…

take one plastic A4 folder

cut it up in a fashion that would make it look like something you have an image of in your mind…

Glue it together with super glue.

then test fit on the car…

Later comes paint and finishing.
the sides I just bent into shape.

It’s really easy to make stuff! And fun

Sunday Driving

Went to the local free track again today to try out the new drifter, drive the F1 car and a couple of other cars.

Points of the day:
There was a good group down there, including a couple of helicopter pilots.
The CS in the rear of the TB03VDS is not that fun… I think I’ll go back to 50/50 for a while…

Here are a couple vids I took.

Interesting camera mount

made up a mount for the GOPRO to make some cool images of the drifter.

made from a TL-01 front upright and axle, a long piece of wood and two old batteries for counter balance weight.

here are a couple of pics and a video test footage.

More TB-03 VDS action

This video I shot yesterday, sorry about the editing, it’s my first time and I probably over did it…

I’m now using the 200% gears in the rear end, which makes for a lot of spinning and a rear end that just wants to go first. Oh, it also means the tyres get worn down VERY quickly…

anyway, take a look!

Fashion designer Jun Watanabe has designed a scheme for the Hornet.
It appears it will be on sale through ZOZOTown in Japan from March, very interesting design…

Colours are a bit too much for most I think, but a very unique Tamiya, would be good to have, just for its possible rarity.

TB-03 VDS drifting video

Finally, after three days straight of rain, I was able to test drive the new VDS.
Driving with the Active 1.5 CS means it’s a new experience and a steeper learning curve.

Sad part is, the Active 1.5 decided to fall apart inside, LOC-TITE the screws people! and chewed up the smaller input gear. So now it has an Active 2.0CS in it.
So tomorrow will be another lesson in driving with the 2.0CS.

Counter steer drift means the rear wheels turn faster than the front, forcing the car to want to push the rear out.
I’m still messing around and will likely take the spool out of the front and put in a ball-diff.

Anyways, take a look at some of the highlights of testing yesterday.
