The TRF201 conversion set is designed with the goal of winning the 2014 IFMAR off-road championships. The new aluminum lower deck makes the TRF201 chassis into a long wheelbase, narrower chassis setup, which reduces contact with the racing surface. Drivers can expect their TRF201 and DN-01 model to become even more competitive in at their local track.



  • Wheelbase is extended by 11mm to provide increased stability.
  • Aluminum lower deck has hard anodized coating to provide excellent durability.
  • Resin side guards add to the toughness of the chassis.
  • Compatible with rectangular-shaped and separate-type battery packs. Battery position can be changed depending upon the type employed.

    2/12/13- Track Star "Yellow Jacket" O-ring update:


    Quite a few months back when we originally set out to correct the problems that we saw with the Losi 22 shocks I was told by a few insiders at Losi that they were working on a solution for the original orings. So we backed off of doing ours. A few months later as you may know they released the "TLR / Team" orings. Smoother; Yes, fix the leak; No. So we went ahead and did our testing of our own design and material. We found a solution and brought it to market. At this time unknown to us that the market would explode for these and our supplying manufacturer could not keep up. A few times we went into back order with both the AE 4x4 and the TLR 22 orings. I was ordering 2 shipments ahead of what could yet to be delivered. This was not panning out. We had to find another source quickly.

    As you all know Track Star products are made here in the USA. Our search lead us to many sources outside of the U.S. but then we had a decision to make. Give in to our "USA Only" products or stop doing the oring product all together. A by chance phone call to another " U.S. supplier" turned out to be a fantastic call as this company manufactures.... in the USA! In explaining what I was looking for and samples being exchanged and tested, I was frustrated once more. The products were either great seals that hindered performance or vice-versa and I was not going to go the route of plain silicone that would just be going backwards. My dismay was heard through the salesman to his boss who happened to be an aerospace engineer for polymer materials (the owner of this company) who wanted to talk to me directly to figure out if he could help. 

    Long story short, after a 2 hour conversation during which emails of specs exchanged we came up with a compound that has not been seen outside of the aerospace industry! This compound is currently being tested in real world conditions (albeit in the standard shock oring size of 3x2mm) if proven to be reliable and proven to perform, tooling will be made not only for the AE 4x4 SC & the TLR 22 platforms but for all other R/C race car fitments. Testing will continue and by weeks end we should have a "go or no go" answer. If this is a "go" we should have a better answer on release date for our new "Yellow Jacket" o-ring line!

    We will keep all of you informed of the progress and we appreciate all of you hanging in there waiting.


    2/1/13- Tamiya TRF 502x parts section updated.

    8/7/12 - Platinum is back!

    Platinum was one of our original tire conditioner formulas. It was put on hold due to some chemicals that were used in the process of making Platinum (and 93) that were banned for sale by the state of California. I am happy to announce that we are using greener/acceptable versions of those chemicals and not only are we safe, legal and more environmentally cleaner we believethat Platinum is better than ever.

    Originally mixed for off road use, Platinum is now our on road (asphalt and carpet) sauce for rubber and foam tires. Blended to be consistent through the entire run and with it's low odor is happily compliant to be used indoors and being dye-free will not stain carpet. Pick up a bottle of TS-Platinum today and see for yourself.


    8/1/12 - Track Star Ceramic Transmission Bearings!

    The first two sets to be released are the versions for the TRF 201 (which covers the Tamiya DN-01 and FF03 cars as well as the TS201SC & ST) and the version for the Kyosho RB5 (which covers the RT5 & Ultima SC/SCR/SP) all bearings are ABEC3 spec and are sourced right here in the USA! The sets shown here have a sample of our TS-1C ceramic bearing oil which will be sold seperately in 1oz micro oiler bottles at the end of August 2012.

    12/25/11 - Happy Holidays from all of us here Track Star

    12/12/11 - TS 1+ is now available!

    One of our first products is something that I have been working on for 20 years as my personal bearing oil for my pit box. A little over five months ago I found a lube base that fit exactly what I had been looking for all these years, coupled with some findings from as far back as 1991, I blended them together and voila! What I call TS-1+. TS for Track Star, 1 for the only one anyone needs and the
    "+" is for more than just bearings.

    In short, what started as a bearing lube has the shear strength to tackle CVA joints and the anti friction properties to even tackle nitro engine rods and piston pins. I'm not claiming a miracle lube. Just something that works very well of which the hobby industry has never seen before. Try it. I think you will agree as some of Southern California's top R/C Pro drivers who use it do, it works.. Click here to find out more.

    "TS-Gold" is our odorless formula that works well on carpet but can also be used on the dirt.

    "TS-Platinum" is as strong as it gets. Wintergreen sauces look out! This will take a few points of durometer off of your tires.

    9/10/11 - Track Star prepped Venom Gamblers podium track opener.

    Pres Ilog and Jimmy Wright debuted their race prepped Venom Gambler SCT's

    at this past weekends Airlands Indoor Raceway Grand Opening series event. Pres Ilog took

    the first round TQ over Jimmy and a full class including some top TLR drivers. The second

    round of qualifying saw both drivers best their times but this time Jimmy took the TQ with

    Pres second on the grid for the final. When the tone sounded it was a Gambler freight train

    for the first few laps with a couple of bobbles by both drivers allowing the TLR driver to pass.

    A chase ensued for the next four minutes and with Pres battling for the first position only to

    come up a second short with Jimmy in tow for a 2-3 podium finish!



    8/21/11 - 3 Entries, 3 Podiums at first annual Summer Sizzle!


    This past weekend ARC Raceway held their Summer Sizzle race which attracted over 100 entries which included some of So Cal’s best drivers. In 2wd SC Mod it would be Jimmy Wright taking top honors as he set his TS-201SC on cruize control and finished nearly a half of a lap ahead of 2nd. In 4wd SC Jimmy would take 3rd coming from a second turn mistake which left him dead last. In 1/8 E-Buggy Pres Ilog was uncontested as he took TQ and the win with his Tekno/D8.


    8/14/11 - Track Star TS-201SC in the "A" at the ROAR Nats!


    Well... We did it!

    One year and two months after creating the TS-201SC we decided to take it to the ROAR Nats and give it a shot against the factory boys from the "other" teams to see what the outcome would be. Though I qualified 10th I was able to accomplish the goal of making the "A". The icing would have been podium and the cherry would have been to win but it was not to be for the later two.

    Right from the start the TS-201SC was on point to do well but it needed some tweaks to allow me to hold my own against the likes of Maifield, Bradley, Tebo, Truhe and Kinwald. I was fortunate not to have one single issue (other than some driving errors) to bring home a spot in the A main at this years ROAR 1/10 Nationals. I went on to turn in an 8 in A1, a 9 in A2 and a 7 in A3 but some how the numbers stacked against me to finish 10th overall.
