  6. Hi Friends, long time no speak. I acquired this as part of a trade. Looks new built to me. Some minor shelf wear on the chassis. Will supply new front tires, too, possibly not originals though. Only issue that I can see is the yellow bottom front shock ends, and the paint which is flaking on the body - which is a good thing as it peels very easily, hence stripping it and doing a new paint job should be rather straightforward. 120GBP/ 140EUR / 160CHF, shipped from switzerland paid by wire or paypal friends + shipping costs (about 25GBP to western world, could be less and I will refund, more and I bite the bullet). Open to offers. I haven't posted here for ages, but I have many references, most of them on rc10talk. Best, Paul Sold - thanks all and thanks TC. Glad to see the flame is still alive Paul

  12. have fun guys... cheap price for kit #14 of Tamiya's lineup http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...=STRK:MESELX:IT Thanks, Paul
  13. I couldn't resist and I picked it up indeed... but my trx-1 project's budget is getting out of hand (see oople for instance) and I have to get some cash back quick as the vintage race I'll race the traxxas in is on March 20thz... so off to ebay it went. No weird BiN price, just an old-skool auction with a no reserve price and low start ($50)... Paul
  14. http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=120529273734 Thanks! Paul
  15. Useful info - thanks guys. no offense taken Paul and LSM, I can figure out where you guys are coming from. Blame ePay for that... Thanks, Paul
  16. 41 reads, no answer? TC ain't what it used to be anymore... guys, that's one of the RM cars... <sigh> Paul
  17. Hi guys There are very few 58014 on ebay these days... hence it's hard to evaluate how much they're worth. There's one for sale at my track, it's pretty much complete minus the driver's head, and is dirty but in decent shape (wing is intact)... any idea how much this'd be worth? Thanks! http://s400.photobucket.com/albums/pp83/Us...a%20RM%2058014/ Paul
  18. Hi there please keep one for me too, thanks! Paul
  19. they have dimensions of all the cars as well as all parts numbers too... ... and of course they're sold out everywhere in the world Paul
  20. I do the occasional vintage sailing session too... I have a fully restored Robbe Rainbow, which is a very, very entry-level boat. The project was to go sailing for as cheap as possible, I paid EUR50 for the boat shipped, salvaged a 2-ch radio for it with fixed junk Prafa servos, cable tensioners are made out of old servo arms, wing rigidifiers out of an old PTFE bottle, ikea hooks to hold cables to the hull, venilia tape for windows, and so on so forth... and she sails a treat, very satisfying low-$ project. I agree RC sailing is quite enjoyable, but is missing the adrenalin rush of running an RC car on a track though will try to post pics later on... gotta find them first! Paul
  21. 25 simultaneous readers Re LiFe - afaik, 5C charges... but **** discharge rates compared to Lipo. Of course, for the mighty 540SH powerplant this should be plenty enough haha! Note that 5C charges is quite a feat to achieve with a "normal" charger and PS combo if your battery is anything more than, say, 1.5Ah To those of you who are crying their lungs out because of how much money you "lost" on these NiB kits you just bought a few weeks ago... hey, you are the ones who made the vintage market like it is today, ie something a lot of vintage enthusiasts can't (or shall I now say couldn't?) afford to enjoy any more... It was long overdue that that trend reverses. Investing 101: nothing is risk-free Hopefully this will also weed out some of the borderline ebay evil sellers who were actually making somewhat of a living off the vintage nib kits just because they could (didn't quote any names, mind you). Flame me if you want, but I say, bring on more re-re's tamiya! Me wants supershots, 959's, Avante's, Astute's!!! Forget about the selected few who suddenly cry over the value of their collection dropping tenfold, they aren't the true enthusiasts anyway! We, the joe schmoes of vintage RC collecting, are! Give us what we need and can afford! Thank you Mr. Tamiya! Paul (PS: just pre-ordered two )
