Tamiya Top Force - A slight problem

Post by rctenracer »

Building a Top Force Kit and stumbled across a slight problem. I'm like where are the threads.

That is a true quick change setup.
I miss brushed motors in that hazy, everything seemed better when I was a kid, kind of way.

Where we're going, we don't need threads.
I build RCs like people would have done back in the '90s ..................................... if they had 3D printers.

I have a axle set ordered from rcMart should be here in a few months. In the mean time why not a zip tie to hold things in place.

It's just the axle, right? Not the CVD.

If so, they are common. Amain has them in stock. I even have a couple, leftover from using CVD's on my Comical Grasshopper.

Yes just the axle. I'm not familiar with tamiya parts . rcmart says TG10 axle # 50823 fits. Amain has one but the part number is 50808.

The description says front axle but they were used on front and rear of various models. That particular axle is used on a LOT of vehicles.

Think I'd just buy an M4 die and cut the thread myself .

Tamiya should have included a M4 die in the tool bag and called it a one of one limited edition kit. I did how ever gain another box wrench that I don't need.

Which one?

Seriously though, I actually had the urge to check if I had one after seeing your post.

Turns out that I have M3 and M4 taps and dies, in both pitches. I was pretty sure about the taps but had never really looked at the smaller dies.
