TA-06 Phase 2.2 Preview

Bling Bling! TA-06 Phase 2.2 shakedown tomorrow.

These shots show the chassis at about 95% complete. I added a couple more details after this including a TRG chrome driver and some finishing touches with the antenna position and lighting connector..

The lipo sits nicely in the centre with small brackets, but I added some velcro to stop it sliding around.

removal is very easy compared to the old hidden compartment Tamiya chassis. I now have leftover Square battery holders.

I spent a little time colour coding the ball ends, plugs and other plastic pieces. I have the Tech Racing shocks to add also which have blue alloy IFS spacers too. I think it looks nice even though the colours are slightly different.

The chassis may get a full green and gold anodizing later, but for now it's blue blue blue.

Carbon graphite suspension arms are visible here.

Wiring is something I hate, but I think I managed to hide most of the wiring successfully. the ESC sits nicely in the forward area underneath the shocks. I'll get it on the scales and check corner weights soon. I think balance should be good, even if overall weight is up a little.
