  1. Nimh at the moment but I am thinking of going Lipo on it in the future.
  2. I have a King Hauler with a Carson Poison Truck Motor installed and it works great but, if I add my flatbed trailer and try and drive over short grass the truck stops and wont move (It just seems to slow to a stop and hasnt got the power to move), is this normal or should this truck be able to drag a trailer over short grass? I have tried it with the diffs locked and unlocked and it makes no difference. If not normal has anyone got any ideas on solutions?
  3. Hi Everyone A while ago i painted my King Hauler silver base and then a red over the top which looked great for a while. Whats now happening now is the tamiya red is starting to flake off anywhere the truck gets lightly scratched. I was wondering does anyone have any recommendations for removing the paint from the abs body so i can paint it again?
  4. Hi Everyone I have now saved enough to purchase a larger semi trailer for my King Hauler but I was wondering whats the best route to go down for automatic connection\disconnection of the trailer & lights etc when coupled or uncoupled from the truck? I am going to go all out and get the tamiya motorised legs as well. I have looked online for a solution but not found anything yet apart from and few videos where people seems to have done thier own solution.
  5. Hi Everyone I have a Suzuki Jimny (JB23) (MF-01X Chassis) but I absolutely hate the body its so high, wobbly and noisy so I was wondering can anyone recommend a replacement body I could get for this chassis? I like it be more pickup or rally car style.

  7. Hi Everyone I have ordered a Tamiya 58617 and I have a paint style id like to try but have no idea of the best way to do it. I have made the car paint job in GT Sport (see attached) I based it on Turbo Kids outfit. Soooo my main question is can i have some tips on how to go about painting the stripes? eg: red first or stripes first ,light colours first or dark etc. im planning in using tamiya masking tape.
  8. I was doing some clearing out of my spare room and I found a Tamiya box all sealed in a vac pack bag. It was my jun watanabe Hornet!! I pre-ordered it from a local shop that has long since closed down and got it on the day of release out and figured id leave it boxed as I already had a Hornet! It has a certificate of Authenticity number that is under 100 Does anyone have any idea of what this is worth as I am now thinking it could fund my next TamiyaTruck as doing a quick search they seem to be getting rare Or should I just pack it away again and hold on to it.
  9. Perfect Thank you Your internet search skills are 100% better than mine!
  10. I am thinking 1/12 scale items for going on my flatbed trailer. So I am guessing building marerial or something else that would look good.
  11. Hi Everyone Can any of you recommend any sites of where to get 14th Scale Accessories from? I want some things for my Truck and Trailer but I am struggling to find much on the internet. So far I have found a fire extinguisher, a bucket and a scale Rice Cooker (Seriously a scale rice cooker!) That one made me laugh! Just incase anyone wants one the link is below! lol https://www.asiatees.com/display?Miscellaneous-All-Parts-Hop-Ups-Upgrades&brand=Miscellaneous&model=All&id=146832&pid=1
  12. All sorted thanks everyone, the rear driveshaft was on upside down.
  13. Thanks guys, I will check this tonight. Lookin at Backlash and Bermans pictures and comparing with a slightly blury one I took last week I do think I have the driveshaft on the rear front wheels on backwards! I will let you know how I get on Thanks again.
  14. Hi Everyone I am busy building my first Tamiya truck and please excuse my ignorance but I have an issue which has really confused me! I have obviously got something wrong but I have no idea how to fix it so hoping someone can enlighten me to what I've done wrong and what I need to do to put it right. what happens is when I push forwards the rear wheels go backwards but the other wheels all go forwards. I am soooooo confused! Can any one advise me?
  15. DONT WORRY I JUST FOUND ONE ON A OLD TAMIIYA CHASSIS IN THE SHED. Happy Days admin please feel free to delete this post, i cant seem to do that.
