    Your first Tamiya kit build?

    I remember back in 1979 saving my Pocket money and skipping School dinners so I can have the money to get My Sand Scorcher (Got re-united with it 15 years after I sold it!). I bought it for £59.95 at Beaties in Swindon as it was on offer as the Rough Rider was going for £69.99. I had to wait another 3 months until I bought the radio gear (Acoms MK I)

    Tamiya Teu-101bk connecting issues

    Green Wire is Negative while the Yellow one is positive. On some Kit 540's ( I can't remember which type) there's normally a small white dot on the Motor endbell by the Positive terminal. I Hope this helps

    R.I.P. Dez Chand

    I first met Dez at the Ardent 24hr Race this year where he was racing in an rival team to me. He was always laughing and joking and was a pleasure being round him. Truly a dedicated RC'er if I ever knew one! My thoughts go to his Family and Friends.

    Tamiya Euro Cup Finals this weekend

    I agree with you there sosidge. I was interested in the M-Chassis racing there and emailed the organisers. No reply and found out a few weeks later that the Venue was in administration.

    I keep finding asphalt and grass...

    It's not near the Big transmitter aerial to the North of the Uffington White Horse? I commute from Swindon to Wantage via Lamborne so I pass that place around 7:45am almost every morning. There is also an RC aircraft club near by. If so, I keep an eye out for you then, Twinset ;-)

    Band 2 crystals

    They are Acoms crystals - Out of the MK1, II, III systems. They can be used on modern 27MHz AM systems, although the case on the transmitter crystal will need unclipping.
  15. Still got some sets for sale. All new old stock
