Welcome back to the channel today, as you can see, we’re going to build the top force 2021 evo re release, kit, it’s, a beautiful rc kit, and i know that supply in to australia especially has been quite uh poor for this kit. But i have heard that there’s some more due in july, so you know everyone stay tuned to your local hobby shops and see if you can get your hands on one of these in about another month’s time, so it’s a beautiful rc kit. I know that i did a sort of bit of an unboxing video on this on the channel, so if you haven’t seen that one click the link above and also before we get on to the sort of skim over and a bit of a build montage, please Consider liking subscribing to the channel. You can also find links to my facebook and instagram page in the description down below. So please head over and check out those pages. Okay, so let’s get on to the build and we’re just going to skip over a little bit of a build montage of some of the steps of the kit so sit back, enjoy the video and i’ll catch you with a full wrap up of what i thought Of the kit Music Music don’t forget with step one put the bearings on before applying the rubber cement steps. Two to four take you through the ball diff assembly for the rear and the motor installation.
It all goes together quite nicely step 16 through to 18 we’re. Basically repeating the ball diff assembly that we did for the rear of the car and we’re starting to put together the front gearbox steps, 21 23 we’re assembling the front arms. As you can see, we’ve got nice universal joints and lightweight pins and screws in the front end Music following step 24, as you can see, we’ve got the front and rear gear boxes with the carbon damper stays attached up. Next, we start to assemble the high cap. Dampers and attach them to the car up next it’s time to build the chassis, so the lower plate goes together with some of the nice machined metal pieces and we get ready to attach the steering links Music and before you know it, the chassis is built. Okay, so that’s the top force 2021 chassis built and, as i said, it is absolutely beautiful – all those nice carbon parts so with the power of youtube let’s, get on and put the decals on the body. So there we go guys we’ve put the decals on. It looks absolutely superb now, let’s, take some photos of this thing out in the sun and i’ll come back to you with my wrap up of the kit Music. So, hopefully you enjoyed the build montage. Video that i just did there and you’ll probably agree that it’s, a fantastic looking rc car and the colors really really pop in the sunlight.
Now i guess what everybody’s really wanting to know is: is this worth it or not? So i know i had my sort of doubts when i first thought i missed out on the kit. I thought well that’s fine, because i’ve built myself a clone car and you know there’s no real need for me to buy one of these now after building it i’m. Absolutely glad that i got my hands on one. I just think that it is sort of that step higher with some of the parts and finishing that you can sort of do on your own clone car as well. Obviously the decals, the the factory decals, are a lot nicer than some of the reproduction decals so yeah. All in all, it is a nice tidy kit and probably one of the best rc buggies that tamiya makes for drivability. Now i know that you’ve got the egress and the avanti and things like that, but i still re. I still personally think that the top force with a few upgrades that come on the evo, really really make this one of to me as best driving buggies um. So let’s get on to some of the positive things that like i’ve mentioned so a finish of the kit is very, very nice. Some of the negatives should, i say, is obviously i didn’t go with the factory 540 motor. I sort of stepped it up to an older super stock type motor that i had laying around and obviously used a hobby wing 1060 esc and i just put a sort of cheapish low profile servo in there as well.
But there is plenty of room if you just have a normal, servo there’s plenty of room for you to fit that in as well. So some of the other negatives were not so related to the car, but more so related to the actual body itself. Now the wind, the paint on the wing was fine, no issues there at all. But when i inspected the body uh there were a few runs and inconsistencies in the paint um now. Obviously this is a pre painted body and pre cut and painted sorry and luckily for me where some of the imperfections were on the paint were actually covered by decals well in today’s video there. I do think that the top force evo 2021 kit is a perfect rc kit, it’s easy to build and it actually gives you kind of that sort of more expert level of rc buggy from tamiya. So if you can get your hands on one, i highly recommend it until next time.
