  1. As i have the new iPhone now for a couple of days, I started to wonder if there's some kind of light version of TC for mobiles? And if so, where do I find it?

    Tamiyaclub For Iphone?

    Yes, I can also load the full version. But it isn't that fast, like you just stated. For example there is a website called and they have a special iPhone (works also with other mobiles) version that has the full functionallity, but is way faster.

    P.s. I have found the lo-fi version button. But in that mode i cannot reply to topics etc.

    Where Have All The Rear Skid Plates Gone?

    If you are interested I can probably design an aluminum one for you. Only thing is that it will take some time for it to be made because the bender at the factory that makes my products just quit his job.

    F104 Build

    The front uprights are attached to a pin, on that pin there is a very small spring. That's all the front suspension the car gets, you can also see it if you look at the pic from the manual that is posted.

    Kyosho Optima Series - What Are They Now Worth?

    I think this topic is exactly what I am looking for! I am in the oppurtunity to trade a new build TLT or buy an Turbo Optima Mid SE. It is the one on the pics, what do you think this is worth?

    58441 Rough Rider "Buggy Champ" Re-release

    Well, you gotta note that most LHS's are not that much into Tamiya as we are. I know much much more about Tamiya than my LHS does, so that says nothing

    '94 Castrol Celica 92200

    I don't think the DI body comes with it. As it will get in conflict with the interior (that is what I expect).

    '94 Castrol Celica 92200

    Hmm, just spoke to Vin87 at MSN. And he told me I am wrong with the round headlight model. I am right that that is the model released in '94 by toyota, BUT... it made it's entrance in the rally scene in '95. In which it was immediately disqualified because of a wrong turbo. Also has updated their description, saying that the driver of the original car was Didier Auriol. Which points us at the celica with the pop-up headlights.

    Nope, 94 is with the double round headlights.

    58441 Rough Rider "Buggy Champ" Re-release

    Ok, this is *******in' great. Finally I can finish my scorcher with some new parts. Build A BNIB RR myself and run it. If it comes with the metal parts as back in the days it is just the way this buggy was meant to be. How cool is that However the link says kit requires PS paint. While the text in this thread says it comes with an ABS hardshell. I hope it will come with the ABS shell, as it is way nicer. But I am afraid many of the modern people think ABS is not the way to go as it can break more easily. Only looks uglier... Well I think they will do it the same as with the Brat, ABS an Lexan. Hmm we will see.

    Shizuoka New Releases (black Porsche 934!)

    Hmm, looks good. But I really miss light buckets, I wonder why they don't add them to such a body. Also the fiat 500 doesn't have them, a real pity.
