What !!! I used to like you Aire...

Just shows how forward TRF was with the coatings and easy maintenance of working on buggies.

Take the 4wd TRF511.

4 screws and the diffs out front
4 screws and the centre slippers out
4 screws and the rear diffs out including front and rear belts

This was back in 2009 ish..............

Seriously though....! you're quite right Mark they were very well designed in their day...just pointing out that they look very similar to the current cars....B6, YZ2, etc..which just proves the point.
Keep up the good work...and a happy, successful New Year...
Alan...

Default Electrics

I have managed to install the electrics now.

MuchMore V2 FLETA ZX 8.5
MuchMore V2 FLETA PRO ESC
SRT BH8015 Low Profile
KO 413

I rewired the ESC, so the motor wires come from the side, not top and rewired the capacitor so it would fit around the side of the ESC as the wires were too short.
I also fitted the TRF Blue servo mounts and TRF Blue servo horn. A few stickers on the wing and now ready to paint the body. Wheels and Tyres to be glued and then ready to mount for final Pictures.......

If it does now, it certainly will when the bodies mounted qatmix......

I have been spraying the body today and just needs a few stickers to show its a TRF.....

I looked at a few bodies from different manufactures, and with the RB6.6 working on my TRF201 XMW Low rider, I had this option and did state in the early post I would use the RB6.6.....BUT !!!!!!!

I ordered a RB7 shell hoping it would be long enough for the TRF as the RB7 is now 4mm shorter.

Guess what, its a perfect fit. I will try and mount it up later.......

Default Finished.

All finished and ready to test.

The body is the New RB7 Body and is a perfect fit. I will try to get to Coventry Club Sunday for the Club Meet to give it a run out.

Great job, as always.......how do you manage to paint, sticker and mount a bodyshell in a couple of hours..?
Not too sure about your choice of body though...looks a bit too chunky and forward cab for me...sorry...apart from that..superb..!

What is the wheelbase?
Is it increased much compared to the original TRF211XM?

I did the same to the TRF201XMW (thread just below this) and that is on par with both buggies you mentioned. This is why I wanted do try this.

I have had both the YZ2 and B6/B6.1D and this for me Lands and Jumps like nothing I have drove (TRF201 XMW). People say the TRF211XM is even better than the TRF201 XMW for jumping and landing,, but hopefully we will see Sunday.........

On open bumpy tracks I see it not phased by any other manufacture but indoors maybe different. But I don't run indoors.... not much outdoors at the moment, but when I ran back in August against the same buggies you mentioned it was on par..........

Hi Chris,

The wheelbase is the same as the TRF211X as I have used the same hinge pin mounts, so wishbones stay in the same place. Depends which wishbone you use and direction you fit them.

All I have done is remove the TRF211XM mid gear box and fit the YZ2 gearbox. Everything else is TRF211XM.....

Simply beautiful Mark. Do love to see you build, and this one looks a ton of fun. Such a great car to drive, I'm betting a lower CG will be pretty nimble indeed.
