  1. 2017... Tempus Fugit. Always no time to continue my projects. Sob! Max
  2. 7 years? Already? This makes me dizzy... Max
  3. Unfortunately I gave up due to economic problems, due to the long economic crisis that has afflicted Italy due to the accession of the €, which has totally destroyed the Italian economy. Currently the situation is getting worse then ever. The country is in bankrupt but no one can declare it because all French and German banks are involved. Germany, France, China, € and UE are destroying the country and sucking up all remaining industrial assets and bank savings of the citizens. The result is that I have long been chronically unemployed. I have lost count of how many years I have not had a decent permanent job and I live with mini jobs earning very little money. I recently reinvented myself and I restore and rebuild Italian vintage two-stroke engines and motorcycles from the 90s like Aprilia and Cagiva. This is giving me some oxygen but with the Corona crisis I didn't work and I gained zero from February 2020 to November 2020. Luckily I started working on motorcycles and engines again from December 2020 but currently I don't know for how long I may have new ones to work on. Common situation in Italy, very common situation. I'm not sad about this, the harder life, the stronger the man, but this means I have to eliminate all unnecessary things to live. This is sad, mates. Max
  4. Very very nice. I had a plan for a Lunchbox before I gave up on the hobby and it was totally opposite to yours: rigid rear and front axles. Max
  5. There's a lot of quirkness in the Super Dragon.. Max
  6. One of the ugliest things Tamiya ever made imho. Max
  7. I bought a NIB second Re Re and I payed it some years ago almost 235€ if I remember well. Max
  8. This topic, 12 years ago, submerged by the time now pops out again. Max
  9. Out of the hobby but I miss it so much.

  10. Here another solution I tried for my King Cab. I never realized how bad my picture were. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=4709 Max
  11. Have a look at here, old and bad pictures, sorry, and you don't see too muck. Another issue of A&L transmission: the motor must turn reverse and no gear reduction inside, due the lack of the iddle gear so with bigger tires you can't have the correct final gear ratio, you are always a little bit too low. As I said I'm not particularly happy of this belt transmission but there was nothing better at the era. If I will come back to the hobby I will replace this transmission with another one. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=52319&id=24 Max
  12. I have this transmission on my King Cab. You must to cut the rear end of the chassis. Other issues are related with the transmission. I needed to shorten the diff cups to not limit the suspensions movement. The part is rough but really strong. When I purchased it there were no alternative, today I would have a different decision. Max
  13. Where did you find these pink wheels? Thanks Max
  14. I lurk in the dark I'm terrible sorry, no time and no money to follow the hobby :'-( Max
