Hi there! My friend Rob had just finished his new rally car, the Tamiya Renault 5 Turbo on the M05-RA FWD chassis, so we thought it would be fun to put it through it’s paces with my Tamiya Audi Quattro A2 on the 4WD TT02-S chassis. We went to our favourite gravel rally circuit and gave them a few laps in each direction around the course.
The M05RA struggled to get going on the gravel surface, hampered by it’s un-damped suspension, but once up to speed it was surprisingly nimble in the turns! The TT02 carried an onboard camera for some interesting action shots, and we had a great time running and filming these RC cars.
PLEASE NOTE: This rally run was just for fun, and is not intended to indicate which is the best, we just thought you Tamiya enthusiasts would enjoy seeing two very different RC rally icons running together!
Both Tamiyas are stock, apart from:
M05RA – full ball bearing conversion
TT02-S – Rally Block tyres and a no-cost mod to the lower suspension arms to give increased travel and ride-height. See the mod here.
Many thanks to Rob (of Rob Brennan RC) for making this film with me – visit his fantastic channel here.
Thanks for watching, wishing you all fun RCing! 🙂
