Video – Tamiya TA08 Pro Build Part 5 | CompetitionX

Welcome to Part 5 of the Tamiya TA08 Pro online video build. We wrap up this build with the installation of the electronics, wheels and tires and some additional final assembly parts.

There are some things to note: 1) there’s not much room on the chassis for electronics so you’ll need to test fit your items prior to final mounting. 2) the body mounts are directional, allowing you to mount the body either 2mm forward or 2mm back. This is a cool feature that lets you adjust the handling of the body without having to drill new holes. Just make sure you match the left/right and front/back mounts.

This was a fun build and the car works exceptionally well. Hopefully this video series has helped you with your build!

Enjoy the video.
