RS4 Sport/TAO3F Pro

Post by Voltaire Mananki » Fri, 07 Aug 1998 04:00:00



I have an RS4 Sport right now and I love it.  Problem is, the racing bug has
bit me, and I want to upgrade.  Ball bearings, graphite chassis, and
turnbuckles will cost about $100.  However, I've seen an ad for the TA03F
Pro for $119.  Would I be better off upgrading the RS4 Sport, getting the
TA03F Pro, or saving up for the RS4 Pro?

Thanks

I've got an RS4 sport also, and though it is still not running
(battery and charger will be here today) I have been watching other
RS4 sports at the races. Most of them kept up or beat the RS4 pro's.
The sport owners all said that you MUST buy the bearing kit to be
competitive. Besides the shocks, the only other big differance's are
wieght related i.e. graphite vs. composite. In my opinion the sport
(with a bearing kit) would be great for racing. As you break things
(and you will) replace them with the lighter more expensive equipment.
But thats just my opinion...I'm on a very tight budget, an important
thing to keep in mind. You also will want to buy the belt tensioner.

Since you already have the RS4, and are probably somewhat comfortable with
it, I'd say go with upgrading.  You can do it little by little, as your
budget, skills, and interest allow.  Start with bearings, and you can go
racing.  After that, go for ball diffs, then universals.  Remember, this can
be done over time, so rather than comparing the cost of upgrading the RS4
vs. the TA03 Sport, look at how much you already have invested in the RS4.
Also, the TA03 Pro is close to your Sport, other than bearings and ball
diffs, so you'd probably still end up buying a lot of hop ups if you are
into racing.  Good luck!

All any chassis needs to finish first is good maintenance and a good driver.
Ball bearings will help extend your runtime, lower maintenance and increase your
speed.  That's all your RS4 needs.  Now get some practice and go kick some
booty.

Yep! What he said.. Local racing can be won with practice and patience,
9 times out of 10. Just run the best tires for your track and don't give
up an advantage with a poor motor. Good Luck,

Mick
