  1. That makes the most sense to me since the motor is in the right place and compatible TL01 parts are still in production.
  2. Any of the older air cooled models is fine with me. Noisy, hot, bad ergonomics...to this day my left clutch leg is way stronger than my right leg... A real car for sure! I had one from the mid 70's and another from the mid 80's I did a 911RSR project a few years back. It doesn't hold a candle to yours in complexity and I had to shelve it for a big move. I am howerver quite proud of my Fuch wheels. It's 2wd with a backwards one way in the front diff to provide four wheel braking.
  3. As a 911 nut, I'm blown away by this project! The best complement I can give you is that it looks like a finished production kit!
  4. IIRC I bought some standard F104 parts (plastic trees) as well as hop up parts. This was three years ago. It probably goes without saying that you should provide part numbers to make things easier to find.
  5. It looks incredibly slick...well done!
  6. If I read the description correctly, it comes with low friction shocks and cardan joint driveshafts (?) so it seems to be a very nice spec!
  7. The only thing holding me back on the TD4 is the body. The chassis itself has all the components neatly packaged and looks like it goes together in that quirky (to borrow a term from you guys) Tamiya way that we all love. The body is an ill proportioned, fat bar of soap with the driver sitting so low, there's no way for him to see out! LOL I know it's just a model but that's whats keeping me from getting this awesome car.
  8. As many as the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.....and if you get that reference, you're old like me!
  9. I agree! You don't want to take away the front wheels' ability to brake. Maybe a drift gyro might be useful too.
  10. He was a great asset to the R/C community. I always enjoyed looking at all the eye candy he posted and always felt his collection was in excellent hands.
  11. I don't have a Prusa but they seem to have the best reputation and are probably the best if you just want to print with a minimal of fuss. I don't mind (really enjoy) tinkering and I didn't have a lot of money to start out with so i got an Ender 3 and that's worked fine for me. It's been tinkered and modified quite a bit but as I said, that's half the fun for me. If I had it to do over again, I would get something enclosed. That's my next project for my printer.
  12. If I recall correctly, back in 2001 when I attended a TCS race at the Mission Viejo track, they were blowing out David Jun TA03s for way under $100...but that was a long time ago! Man I'm old!
