The differences are new diff/rear wishbones/hangers/hubs/motor mount & centre mount with front top deck, basically a tm4 rear end with a tm2 front end with a shorter chassis so it would be more prudent to buy the kit as the chassis on a tm2 is £90 ish. its supposed to give more front end grip i think thats what i read anyway please see the link below

"The new car feels more like a conventional mid-motor car, with still having the same or even more speed then the old car.

The car has also a lot more forward traction and on the same hand more steering response. Overall a good step forward and i can“wait to run on the EOS this coming weekend!” – Hupo Honigl

Kev lee @ insideline racing is taking pre orders for the first batches of tm2 v2 & tm4 now expecting the February/march will cost you £50 to reserve one though.

Probs to stop you buying a competitors wheels!!
Think I'd be looking to try and swap out the 14's for a set of 12mm hexes!!

Where has the 10mm wheelbase been removed from, front or rear?

The noze is the same, and slipper is the as the TM2. I've see some picture where the ESC have less place os i thinks is on the rear.

That's where there's some spare room, but would probably require a shorter centre drive shaft, so not a cheap mod. Certainly worth buying the v2 if you like the original

Maybe because the back end looks like it's taken right off the xray which has 14mm hexes.

No the back end is from the tm4 that has 14 mm hexes.:)

Car: TeamC TM2 V2
Motor: DualSky 6.5
ESC: DualSky
Batteries: H-Speed
Radio/Servo: Futaba

Making his race debut with his new ride, Hupo has declared himself very satisfied with the performances of the TM2 V2 having only tested for a couple days back home prior to coming to Berlin. The buggy he is using is pretty stock apart from the addition of some weight to the front end. Compared to the previous version, the V2 has more steering in the faster corners as well as more forward traction.

Shorter chassis = more forward traction..........can someone explain please, as I assumed longer wheelbase cars provide better forward traction!

A shorter chassis will have more weight transfer, the V2 also appears to have the electrics mounted nearer the rear axle.

All the rear is different no just the main chassi, so he can explain.

Why V2 has gone for 14mm hex rear instead of 12mm ?

So they can charge you £12 a 'PAIR' for wheels.:woot:

Group b rally cars were short so the rear end would transfer its rear quicker
Same principle aplies here in theory but its not a direct comparison
A longer car is safer to drive as its lazy
You can also set a shorter car up softer
I think the tm2 v2 all round is a better car as when i had a go with a tm2 it felt too lazy imo a bit dull really
I run a c4.2 as its just as quick as a tm2 for one lap but you know your driving it which means a shorter chassis is what a tm2 actually needs

Lee24h
03-03-2014, 09:31 PM
Yes i had a go with a very well setup car (v1)im not putting the v2 down at all
But i suppose thats why i like a midmotor car rather than foward motor
I like a challenge to drive if your not having fun you shouldnt do it and a mid motor on grass on a summers day is defo more fun than a forward motor
I mean you know your driving it as theres a edge where it handles really well then bang its sideways which is fun
Tm2 dosent do that
By the way you can get a feel for a car with a go
I am potential tm2 v2 owner

Why V2 has gone for 14mm hex rear instead of 12mm ?

Mainly because the rear of the car is based of the TM4 which runs 14mm hex wheels, and the 12mm hexes from the old cars don't fit the new axles

have gat a XB4 and a TM4 and the TM4 handles a lot better and more predictably IMO.
Loved the XRay until the TM4 took it another stage.

Really pleased with my v2 and surprised how well it goes in the wet. Managed to qualify A2 at a very soggy southport on Sunday running schumacher silvers on the rear as well. I'm using Tco2c flat rear wishbones with the shocks mounted at the back

Chris Elworthy
25-11-2014, 11:05 AM
I agree Joel,

I've tried the tc02c which is almost a dedicated low grip car and still find myself going back to the TM2v2 in the wet as despite lacking a little rear grip in comparison it just feels more alive and less pushy.

I've not even tried anything as radical as running shocks on the rear yet I just move the wheelbase from long to medium and run 3.5deg toe and it's excellent.


What's the idea with running the tc02c rear arms?


Chris

JoelMaher
25-11-2014, 01:24 PM
I did the same thing when I had the rb6 I found it keeps it flatter in the corner. Definitely an improvement for me in high grip, kit arms probably would be better in low grip

Gavin Collingwood
27-11-2014, 07:25 AM
I've tried the shocks on the back and found it a bit lazy but granted I've changed my piston set up since so will need to test more, the biggest change I've made is getting a carbon chassis and front top deck made by fibrelyte +8 mm longer it just adds that stability the short chassis didn't have without sacrificing any steering.
Also running 2x1.6 front and 3x1.5 pistons made a big difference

JoelMaher
27-11-2014, 07:53 AM
Are you running big bores? I felt small bores made the car more lively and agile

Gavin Collingwood
27-11-2014, 08:10 AM
No not needed to. And I didn't like them at all. Big bores soak up jumps and bumps better imoand the car certainly doesn't need making even more lively!

LOL

It looks like a carpet protector that is fitted back-to-front and is doing nothing to protect the carpet from the M3 nuts; that are small enough to damage the carpet if the car should land upsidedown.

Chris Larner
15-12-2014, 08:00 PM
I can't remember who makes it but I remember having one on my Kyosho RB5. That one is defiantly the same one.

Hi Muzzie. Theres one on ebay at min new in box. If you need one quick.

Muzzie
12-01-2015, 06:19 PM
cheers I'll take a look-

I've ran my v1 for over 2 year's now and it's getting a bit worn, it would cost more to replace the parts than to just buy a new car.

There not much info on how the V2 compares to the V1? Are most people reversing the rear wish bones and mounting the rear shocks on the back?

cocker7433
12-01-2015, 06:44 PM
Yes we are putting the shocks on the rear it calms the car down a lot easy to drive

Chris Elworthy
12-01-2015, 06:59 PM
In my experience the v2 is a far more nimble car and therefore generates quicker lap times. The ease in which you can work on the car is also greatly improved from the v1, you can access the diff by removing only 4 screws which makes the car about the easiest car to work on I've seen.

Many do run the shocks on the rear of the car,which also involves removing a little of the material from the rear shock tower to make it fit on the rear of the bulkhead. Shocks on the rear help make the car more stable and safer to drive especially through bumpy sections and also calms the weight transfer to the front making the car easier to drive consistently. This is also due to the chassis of the v2 being around the shortest on the current market so the car does feel more direct than most. You may also have seen many drivers running the Tony Parr aluminium chassis that makes the car that little bit longer for stability.

I however get on very well running the shocks on the front of the rear wishbone as it suits my driving style so there is no right or wrong way. It's all down to grip as usual, we've found that if the grip was very high the car can feel lazy with the shocks on the rear so went back to the front for example.

One thing i would like to mention is how well the v2 can perform in lower grip with minimal setup changes, I would go as far as saying it's the best low grip car I've ran and it's a forward motor chassis with a geared diff!!

Just get one mate, you will not be disappointed.



Chris

Gavin Collingwood
12-01-2015, 11:50 PM
The biggest thing I've found is getting a +8mm longer chassis and upper front deck made, settled the car down making it far more stable without losing it's nimbilty. I've tried shocks on the rear but can't really trust that test as at the time my shock and piston set up just wasn't right at all..... So I will be trying that again soon with the correct piston set up

We have one on the way if it helps. It will be with us by the end of the week.
