Disappointment with the TTO2
There was some disappointment and, namely these two things, yeah, not happy with that this isnt, the tto2 that I’ve done the YouTuber race with this is a t804 and well get on to that in a minute, and I dont necessarily what this is do I this is My Limitless look at that body.
A Masterpiece Paint Job
How cool is that, and I think that really shown it much have I this body was painted by a buddy of mine shark fat. This is all painted, there’s no stickers on this at all, not a single sticker on it. Look at it look at the detail, its so good. The design is actually based on an old fighter jet that I used to work on when I was in the military, the tornado, GR4 that’s why its all dirty and well used, because they were certainly well used, and this isn’t just a random number that’s, also significant. The AR for armor obviously and the 631 that was actually part of my service number, so so its got some meaning – and it looks amazing.
Failure at Rosser
Anyway, were not here to talk about how good my body looks easy were here to talk about how I failed at Rosser With what was meant to be the fastest car, I own foreign, its got a TP motor, I think one of the fastest or the worlds fastest, RC car runs TP Motors. The rest of it is pretty stock. Its a stock, V1 stock, diff stock suspension.
But despite all these expectations, my FAST Tamiya broke my heart. It let me down when it mattered the most. The TTO2, which I had used for the YouTuber race, was supposed to be my ticket to victory. I had put so much hope and belief in it, thinking that it would dominate the competition. But alas, it proved to be a letdown.
A Need for Speed
I must admit, the speed of the Tamiya was impressive. The TP motor provided an adrenaline rush like no other. When it raced on the tracks, it left other RC cars in the dust. It was a beast in its own right. But the disappointment came when it came to maneuverability and control. The stock V1, stock diff, and stock suspension just couldn’t handle the demands of high-speed racing.
An Unfulfilled Dream
I had dreams of crossing the finish line triumphantly, basking in the glory of victory. But instead, I found myself watching my Tamiya spin out of control and crash into the barriers. It was a heartbreaking sight. All the time and effort I had invested into this car felt wasted in that moment.
After this devastating blow, I have come to the realization that my time with the Tamiya has come to an end. The endless frustration and disappointment have taken a toll on my passion for RC racing. It’s time to let go and find a new adventure, perhaps with a different brand or model.
The Unforgettable Lessons
Although the Tamiya may have broken my heart, it has taught me valuable lessons. It has reminded me that speed alone is not
When it comes to my Tamiya, I’ve always been eager to add some upgrades. One of the customizations I made was a front spoiler, which I must say, looked really slick. And of course, I couldn’t resist adding armor skins as well because who doesn’t want their RC car to look tough?
The Speedy Servos and Electronics
When it came to servos and electronics, I opted for the relatively cheap servo option. Sure, it may not be the best, but it gets the job done. However, I have to admit that the servo is quite good. It’s got a Max 5 in it, which really adds some power to the car. I had to chop it up a bit to get it in there, but that’s just part of the fun, right?
But alas, the fun didn’t last long. I believe the problem with my Tamiya was the gearing. It had a 34 gear, or something like that, which made it quite high. In fact, it’s around 2000 KV, or so I think. With that gearing and the powerful motor, I expected my Tamiya to reach speeds of around 120 miles per hour. Disappointingly, it fell short.
The Limitless Stability
One thing I must mention about the Tamiya Limitless is its stability. It’s one of the most stable platforms I’ve come across. You can gun it and it will stay in a straight line, which is perfect for speed runs. Now, don’t get me wrong, my Tamiya is not slow by any means. But it’s definitely slower than what I had hoped for.
A Flash of Disappointment
After all the anticipation for a thrilling speed run, my Tamiya only managed to reach 93 miles per hour. It was disheartening, to say the least. I was hoping for a much higher speed, a moment of exhilaration. But instead, I was left with a feeling of disappointment. The GPS confirmed it, a mere 100 miles per hour.
The Safety of Hobby Wing ESCs
However, there is one silver lining to this whole ordeal. The Hobby Wing ESC proved to be a safe option. Unlike other ESCs, such as the Castle ESC, which tend to go up in flames if not set up properly or taken care of, the Hobby Wing ESC is well protected. It didn’t pop or cause any major issues. Luckily, I had chosen the safer option at the time.
In the end, my Tamiya experience left me feeling a bit let down. The upgrades and expectations didn’t quite match up to reality. Maybe it’s time for a break from all the RC car excitement. But who knows, maybe one day I’ll give it another go and find the thrill I had always hoped for. Only time will tell.
The Disappointment of My FAST Tamiya
So we threw it in. But the issue is because of how powerful that motor is in the current being drawn. It just went into over protection and I’m, pretty sure, there’s a clip where you can hear it as soon as I gun the throttle it starts picking up speed, then it just flat lines, and that was as fast as I could get out of it so 100.
A Need for Speed, But Something’s Not Right
On the GPS, it just didn’t seem right so I’m, just gonna go what’s up yeah it’s cutting its cutting that’s. Why it’s got so much more in it, it’s the ESC, it’s the Mac, it’s got a Max Max 5 ESC didn’t like it. I need to gear down, maybe yeah.
A Bit of Disappointment
It’s cutting that’s, why I thought it had more in it ugh. If I geared down a bit, I might have got a little bit faster, but ultimately the ESC was the problem, so I came away from roster with the Limitless feeling a little bit disappointed in it. This was meant to be my PB car. This is going to push me past. I don’t know 120 mile an hour and it just didn’t perform, but I have a cunning plan.
A Cunning Plan
Don’t worry, Mr B. I have a cunning plan to solve the problem. This is gonna, be my PB car next year. I’m still gonna do some tweaks that are Limitless. This is gonna, be the one that I push for some big numbers. I’m not sure, if you’re all aware of hobby comps, but they do competitions, as in the name um, and this was one of their prizes.
I was filled with anticipation when I acquired the FAST Tamiya roller. It had a reputation for speed and performance, and I couldn’t wait to put it to the test. The components were top-notch, with a scorched RC chassis rotor block Mount, titanium shafts, carbon shot Towers, and carbon brace. I didn’t even have to build it, which added to my excitement.
Ambitions and Expectations
With my 100 mile an hour achievement already under my belt, I was eager to push the limits further. I had set my sights on the 200 kilometers an hour mark and obtaining my 150 mile an hour hat. The prospects seemed promising, and I eagerly anticipated the exhilaration of achieving these milestones with my newfound Tamiya roller.
An Unexpected Letdown
My enthusiasm quickly turned to disappointment, however, as I encountered problem after problem with the Tamiya. Unlike the previous Limitless model I owned, which performed admirably in a straight line, this one seemed to have a mind of its own. It veered off course unpredictably and failed to reach its full potential.
A Source of Stress
My frustration with the troublesome Tamiya reached new heights. Normally, I am calm and collected when it comes to my RC cars, but this one managed to push my buttons. I dedicated an entire week to building it, investing not only time but also energy in creating a video to document the process.
The hours I spent meticulously assembling the Tamiya roller became tainted with disappointment. I began to doubt my choices and questioned whether I had taken the lazy route by purchasing a pre-built model rather than starting from scratch. The stress and anger crept up on me, surprising me with their intensity.
Back to the Drawing Board
As my frustration grew, it became clear that my dreams of achieving record-breaking speeds with the Tamiya roller were shattered. I had to reconcile with the fact that this particular model was not capable of delivering the performance I had hoped for.
It was a difficult pill to swallow, but I knew I had to move on. I packed up the Tamiya roller, ready to venture into new possibilities. Maybe it was time to explore other RC car options, to find a model that would satisfy my need for speed and precision.
As I put the disappointment behind me, I couldn’t help but reflect on the unpredictable nature of hobbies. They bring us joy and excitement, but they also have the power to disappoint and frustrate. It is in these moments of setback that we learn to adapt, to keep pushing forward, and to never let a broken heart keep us from the pursuit of our passions.
Building the Ultimate Tamiya
Just couldn’t drive it. This actually started life as my original TA, 04 SS. I made a video stripping it down, rebuilding it, showing off the carbon Pro kit that I had gotten for it back in 2017. My plan was to build this to break 78 miles an hour and eventually hit a hundred miles an hour. And if you look at it, you’d think, “Yeah, it’s going to be fast.” The carbon Pro chassis made it nice and light, and I even added a plastic card to further reduce weight. I thought I had everything figured out.
Pulling it Apart
I put all the knowledge I had gained over the past five or six years into building this ultimate Tamiya. I restricted the suspension, removing it completely at the rear. I had carefully planned the weight distribution, creating space on each side for the batteries. It seemed like a masterpiece in the making. Unfortunately, I didn’t document the entire process. I only have videos up until a certain point, and that’s where it all fell apart, quite literally.
Lost in the Abyss
I don’t know where it is. It’s somewhere amidst all this mess. My once fast and furious Tamiya, with the Motrin ESC and the impressive 7700 KV Castle motor, has disappeared. It’s now replaced by a Castle Copperhead 10, which is even quicker and more powerful than my initial effort. But it’s just not the same. There’s something missing, and it breaks my heart.
I had dreams of reaching unimaginable speeds with my Tamiya. I had visions of breaking records and impressing fellow enthusiasts. The 911 Turbo or GT3 body that I bought was meant to be the perfect complement to my speed machine. But now, it sits there, abandoned and forgotten, collecting dust in the corner of my workshop.
The End of an Era
I’m done. I can’t bear the disappointment any longer. The thrill of the chase has turned into despair, and I’ve lost the motivation to continue. Maybe it’s time to move on to a new hobby, something that won’t break my heart. My once beloved Tamiya will remain a bittersweet memory of unfulfilled dreams and the pursuit of speed.
The Wrong Fit
I messed that up and cut the holes wrong so they didn’t fit properly. So then I thought, oh, this Lamborghini body might fit, but that’s way too wide. So I actually ended up using the body from my YouTuber race. Even that isn’t a perfect fit, however, it’s as aerodynamic or more aerodynamic than the truck body I originally ran on.
It was just not drivable. The crosswind was terrible that weekend. I don’t know whether it was that, it certainly wasn’t. I put too much power through it because I couldn’t even get Full Throttle. I was probably at like 60 or 70 throttle before it just lost control, so it wasn’t that too much power. It seemed nice and smooth accelerating, it’s a sensored motor, but I just don’t know what was wrong with it.
This is probably the first time I’m going to admit defeat with this. I just don’t think it’s worth any time or effort trying to get it to silly speeds. I think there are better Tamiya platforms out there to achieve what I want. It’s frustrating because six years ago, I got 78 miles an hour. I’ve learned so much in those six years.
There’s better technology now in motors and ESCs. There are better options available. I’ll show you my one and only attempt at a speed run with it, and you’ll see why I’m even more annoyed. Right, let’s see what this does. All right, come on Tamiya, don’t let me down.
Music playing, ah, steering’s way off. It’s just here.
The Frustration of a Broken Heart
As a passionate hobbyist, my love for all things remote-controlled has always been a mainstay in my life. From cars to drones, I’ve experienced the thrill of control and the exhilaration of speed. However, recently, my beloved Tamiya, the epitome of speed and precision, broke my heart in more ways than one.
An Uphill Battle
I remember the day vividly, a beautiful sunny afternoon perfect for a drive. The anticipation was electric as I prepared my Tamiya for its latest adventure. The wheels seemed sturdy, the engine revving with eagerness, promising an exhilarating ride. Little did I know that this would be the beginning of the end.
With a flick of the switch, my Tamiya sprang into life, tearing through the open road like a bolt of lightning. The wind rushed through my hair as I held on tight, feeling the initial rush of speed. However, as the moments passed, a sense of unease started to creep in, whispering doubts in my ears.
A Sketchy Situation
My heart sank when I decided to consult the trusty GPS in an attempt to calm my racing mind. The numbers stared back at me in accusation. It couldn’t be true. Could it?
According to the GPS, my Tamiya had reached a mind-boggling speed of 62 miles per hour. How could something so exhilarating turn into a nightmare at such a velocity? The realization hit me like a ton of bricks. My Tamiya, my pride and joy, had betrayed me.
Reflecting on the Damage
As I analyzed the situation, it became clear that the consequences of this reckless speed had taken their toll. The wheels, once robust and reliable, now stood as a reminder of the fragility of perfection. The thrill of the ride had overshadowed the warning signs, and now I was left to pick up the pieces of a shattered dream.
I couldn’t help but feel disillusioned. Was my love for remote-controlled vehicles misguided? Was it all a futile pursuit, destined for heartbreak? The perplexity in my mind grew, and doubts seeped into every crevice of my passion.
The Bitter Farewell
With a heavy heart, I came to a decision. The joy that once accompanied the roar of my Tamiya now turned into a somber farewell. I decided it was time to part ways, to distance myself from the source of my heartache. The thrill of speed, the rush of control, had lost its appeal in the face of disappointment.
As I bid farewell to my faithful Tamiya, there was a sense of closure, a finality to this chapter of my life. I couldn’t ignore the lessons learned, the bitter taste of broken promises. While my heart may have been broken, my spirit still yearned for new adventures, for challenges that would not leave me disillusioned.
In the end, it was not my Tamiya that defined my passion for remote-controlled vehicles. It was the resilience to bounce back from heartbreak, the willingness to embrace new experiences, and the discovery of
