    Tamiya Usa = Morons?

    Well that comes across as a dummy spit / bad day shout. We've all had them but it sounds rather spoilt though as per Willy's reply. As has been mentioned TamiyaUSA gives us the most comprehensive english language parts explanation and list available, and I am (and I am sure hundreds/thousands others are) grateful for that. For viewing pleasure alone its appreciated. You get my support and thanks. I do think it's a pity that you don't process orders from overseas (or is that a dealer contractual obligation?) as you would probably get alot of business via this. Even if you only accepted paypal. Years ago I bought the spare parts box sets for about 200usd from you, but had to do so via a helpful US based TC member who paid, received and on sent it to me. Overly complicated and relies on goodwill of others.
  2. Great to hear. keep your chin up! Don't bother about repacking, smoke tinted packing is 'patina'. People will pay more Best wishes!

    High Power Nimh Packs?

    Packs like these are heavy. I only have one pack above 4300 and I will never buy a pack above 3900 again. The only thing these give you is longer run times. But the car is much heavier with such packs, so the result is more strain on the motor. All they really achieve is hot motors due to longer run time and heavier weight car to move around.

    Mfu Dimensions & Wieght?

    Can anyone with an MFC-02 ie. the MFU light and sound unit for the F350 - please post up the dimensions of it (LxWxH) and its speaker and speaker box? And suggest the approx weight of the speaker and unit itself? Not one Tamiya official site or seller lists these details! Thanks
  6. Lol, you have the iconic Tamiya offroad model. I suggest you do a little forum searching to learn about it The wiring has been a bit modded, including the holes for it sticking out of the battery box. Original black bumpers are rare, they changed to grey as the production numbers increased. Have fun!
  7. WOW! That's a nice post Easter present! Charger, boxes, and black bumper! Lucky lucky

  15. GO THE FAVs and WOs!!! WELL DONE! That takes a serious amount of organising. Take my hat off to you, its more work than most people realise to get such days organised. Looks like it was fantastic. Now some picts of period TXs for those really into the spirit? I am waiting for a race like this to use my EX-II. Hope someone attending is a video star and you get some stuff for youtube! Thanks for posting up/sharing!

    New Dyna Storm Parts

    Yes, they are the ones. The spacers are not extra or new, even the kit DS uprights require them. It lets you adjust the wheelbase a little. Dai at Square is a very good seller and I have only had excellent experiences with him. Both the Square DT02 front and rear uprights fit.

    New Dyna Storm Parts

    That looks very nice. I am very glad to see so much passion and enjoyment with it Nice photos. Rears are blue Square's also. The square parts are the lightest, and only come with one tierod ballstud mounting hole. The Five Stars hubs are the second lightest and were avail in silver and blue; and are easy to distinguish even if you don't have any reference available as they come with 2 ball stud mounting holes (front and rear). There is a small square pink piece of paper somewhere in the box that has the exact weights of these parts written down. The Square are better in every respect, but they also cost more and are expensive (30euro for a pair!).
  18. Yes I have changed as an r/c enthusiast: I have grey hairs now and I can't sit crossed legged on the floor for long periods now. Otherwise the same enjoyment is still there. I do miss having friends over after school tho (lol, some parts of growing up suck ) and sharing the enjoyment. But otherwise much the same. Best parts are weekends outside with rc boats and some relaxed race days, and of course the annual TC international meet at muratti's place! :D

    Which Was The Best Rc Year?

    1991! Former Tamiya Cup races in Singapore, usually being the only foreigner there. Was always GOOD fun racing on usually highly inappropriate surfaces (marble outside a shopping center anyone? ), lugging along the big sealed battery from my dads electric golf bag trolley to charge my batteries with on this (then 'hot') black Tekin charger. Ah the feeling of practically melting Nicads in my hand Man it was fun to be innocent and just have fun without having tire additive and com lathing and all the later 'helpful' knowledge in my mind! Still then having a FAV and KC at home. And one of the coolest nights that year -a female school friend come over one night to borrow a computer printer and when I heard the car coming I thought their merc was sounding rough, only to look out the window and see her Dad had brought her round in his Testarossa! In Singapore! Cool times, with hobby shops full of interesting Tamiya's and Kyosho's. I still have the Tamiya cup trophys in a box somewhere. They mean more than newer race results to me infact. Good times!!

    Beautiful Scale Racing

    This is so nice on so many levels. Genuinely a great way of enjoying our hobby in a way which appeals to spectators and family days out. Thumbs up to the CZ guys.
  21. Contact the seller. See what they want. If no reply, you have done what is reasonable. Be happy and keep it then.
