Default Tamiya TRF211XM Low Rider Build.

Hi all,

I will be building a New TRF211XM Low Rider with Yokomo YZ2 gearbox and all TRF Hop-Ups.

I have been working on the White Chassis with gloves on..... I have drilled and countersunk the chassis ready for the YZ2 Low Rider gearbox. The chassis needed very slightly modifying, but nothing too dramatic. I will show pictures of what I have done and needed to do to the chassis.

I have been collecting all the New in Packet Yokomo YZ2 parts for the build, so will list these to help anyone who would like to build one.

I have a New in box TRF211XM, but cant have it until that fat red bloke comes with the fluffy white beard... ( The Wife ).....

I will be using the RB6.6 Blade body on the build....

I did this to my TRF201 XMW and it drives fantastic, so want to try it on the TRF211XM..........

I will post pictures soon.................

Default GearBox Parts YZ2-4Gear

After using the 4-gear YZ2 Gearbox on my TRF201 XMW Low Rider, I have decided to use it again. The way it ran was perfect for my driving style, so will be using it again for this build.

The 4-Gear motor plate also allows for the support to the chassis to aid strength and protect the gearbox.

So here is the list of YZ2 Parts I will be using........

Z2-304 Motor Plate 4-gear
Z2-018 Rear Tower
Z2-303 Idler Shafts x2
Z2-503 Idler Gear x2
Z2-302 4-Gear Gearbox
Z2-303TA LayShaft
Z2-670VP Slipper Plate x2
Z2-018M Water Fall and Parts
Z2-018M2 Worlds Water Fall
B2-670S Slipper Spring
Z2-001W Wing Mounts
Z2-300RUW Alloy Ballstud Mount (rear).
Alloy Brace from Motor Plate to Chassis.

I will also be using the RDRP Drilled Spur Gear 78t.

Also to mention as well, the Diffs (Ball & Gear) from the TRF211XM Kit will fit the YZ2 Gearbox with 0.5 shims either side with the correct amount of side to side movement due to being slightly narrower than the YZ2 Diffs. TRF diffs will be used..

Hope that helps....

Default WHITE Chassis......

I managed to get a brand New White chassis along with the conversion kit for a TRF201XMW to TRF211XM.

I purchased this as I did not want to reck the full blown TRF211XM Kit Chassis if it didn't work out.

After close inspection of this White Chassis, its became clear how thin and what a LCG this chassis has. All the pre-holed/countersunk holes by Tamiya have been reinforced/built up around each hole and mounting point.

This is something you need to take care of if you are going to attempt to drill and countersink it.

I have managed to drill and countersink what I needed to and have cut down the rear posts where the motor plate will fit. I cut both to match, but you just need to remove the side the pinion fits dependant on 3 or 4 gear.

I have fitted a clear Fredrik chassis protector and trimmed.

X2 Holes drilled just in front of the rear hinge pin mount either side the support T
X2 Holes drilled for the Water Fall
X2 Holes drilled for the motor plate brace

Chassis already for the build..............

Default Gearbox to Chassis

With the TRF211XM Kit you get the brass XA 15g rear inner hinge pin mount. I have gone for the standard alloy XA for now, then will try the brass XA to see the difference.

The gearbox fitted perfect. You will notice I have fitted 2mm washers under the chassis brace to gain the correct level due to the chassis being LCG.

Default Water Fall

After testing the different water falls by Yokomo. I preferred the Worlds cut down water fall so have installed this option.

I also went for the Yokomo YZ2 Optional Alloy Ball stud mount. I will need to contact COBRA RACING for the alloy rear block I had them make me for the TRF201XMW to fit where the weight would fit on the rear centre of the ball stud mount.......

Default Ball stud mount, wishbones, hinge pin mount

I went for the High Traction rear wishbones as I prefer how they handle compared to the kit rears. Also a added bonus is they are pre-dremelled for the outdrive and have mounting holes for the shocks both sides.

I have removed 2mm on the front of the wishbone and added a 2mm blue washer to the rear of the wishbone to shorten the wheel base slightly.

The rear hinge pin mount and anti-squat washer needed about 3mm-4mm filing down as not to hit the gearbox screws, nothing major at all.

Default Front end, Brass pivot block, TRF turnbuckles

So with the rear complete bar the shocks, front end then.

I have fitted the 0 degree Brass front pivot block. Very hard to get now as all I could find was 5 degree. But managed to find one in the end....

Again TRF Blue TI turnbuckles and the front end went together very well.

Now its starting to look like a TRF buggy..............
