  1. This is a follow up to two great Mf-01x 911 projects. The first by Juls1 and the second by OldSchoolRC1. If you haven't seen their threads yet and want detailed info on converting a mini size Mf-01x to a TT-01 size short wheelbase you should take a look. Many of the drive train and suspension mods I had in mind before I started building but their excellent builds are a proof of concept and worth a peek. The only thing that really bugged me about Tamiya's excellent 2.7 RSR where the wheels. While they look great for a modern Fuch wheel, they are too low profile to look period correct. I made my own Fuch wheels that had a black ring on the rim to simulate a high profile tire from the 70's. Its a solution similar to what Tamiya did on the F104 F1 wheels. The TL-01 long span suspension was for the most part, a direct fit but I had to make rear upright extensions, and front & rear shock mounts similar to OldSchoolRC1's car.
  2. Is there a front universal swing shaft for the GF-01CB? As you know the car uses the suspension arms from the WR-01CB so the rear swing shafts from that car are a direct fit. The front dog bones from the GF-01CB are 3mm longer than the rear so I'm assuming the rear swing shafts would be too short. I don't have a Comical Avante but I want to try it's front suspension on an MF-01x.
  3. Incredible modelling! Can you give us some details on the print? How many pieces, and what material did you use?
  4. I've heard the same but I was able to buy a spare one for my shelf queen Mad Fighter. I also read on a forum that the clear gearbox version was provided to store owners to display the model in their shops. I think my Super Fighter G (DT02) was a first run as well because it came with a clear gearbox too.
  5. Thanks, another must know Tamiya acronym like ORV and SRB (not 100% on what those mean either)
  6. IIt needs wheels like this...too bad they're discontinued.
  7. Yes! I'm getting one strictly for looks! Although it's probably the most advanced, production, solid axle RC buggy ever made (although that's not saying much!) I have a couple of Mad Fighters that I loan to my friends' kids and they always come back in one piece! Also, is this the first time this chassis didn't come with the friction shocks?
  8. If Hirobo can go from Helicopters and re issue their classic RC cars, then it isn't a stretch for Marui to go from Airsoft products to re issueing their RC cars! I'll leave a spot for the Marui Ninja and Samurai on my shelf. Unfortunately, Ayk is long gone...I always wanted a Radiant.
  9. I've been at it for about as long as you. A few years back I bought a 3d printer, & a CNC and started making custom parts for my cars. Now that added an extra dimension to my RC hobby!
  10. You'll need the Blackfoot/Monster Beetle counter gear. You'll need the pinion gear too unless you have an aftermarket adjustable motor mount.
  11. Nice! But I think it needs a giant ice cream cone sculpture on top!
  12. No doubt this will make a lot of Escort fans very happy! I personally would like to see a Porsche 959 especially since the motor and drive train layout match the car.
  13. I hope he can fix it too. I have this on my SRB and I love the way Paul's parts update the rear suspension but still look vintage.
  14. I'm not sure what this type of off road suspension is called but it's used in a lot of competition buggies (pic from Rc Car Action) The C-hub is integrated into the steering knuckle giving the suspension arm more clearance. This example is from an XV-01 rally car. I'm thinking that something similar could be fitted to my CC01 although I don't have any experience with this type of suspension (maybe a future project)
  15. I feel like I missed out on the CC01 rear axle kit! SupraChrgd82 is right. Getting a kit like that would make it the highlight of your collection.
