  1. I remember that i used to take part at a 2h fun endurance racing event. We used a Futaba voltage telemetry sensor that helped us a lot to find the perfect timeslot for the battery changes. I also found it very usefull then.
  2. I can confirm that 100%. The supply voltage is not really a problem for a modern receiver. You should be more careful when choosing the servos. Especially when powerful servos are used, I would take a close look at the performance of the BEC's, because most standard ESC only provide up to about 2A BEC current. A powerful servo quickly gets into this range during operation.
  3. Regarding the 49400 30th Anniversary I can only partly agree. The effort that Tamiya put into the really great body and chassis doesn't go all the way to the wheels. To look at an 911 Porsche without having to look at wider rear wheels hurts my eye deeply and I cannot tolerate this in any way, especially with a 1000$ kit. Strangely enough, this was consistently implemented in every other cheap 911. Of course this is an issue that can be easily fixed, but i don't see the need to buy an extra set of wheels when i spend this amount of money for a kit. just my 2 Cents Oh- by the way - your 40 anny looks killer. That's the wheels i would have liked to see on the 49400
  4. To be honest - apart from the two original old ones - none of them. The topic 934 Porsche has been so sucked out by Tamiya that I can't see any of them anymore. Even a 30th Anniversary has become so annoying that I don't even click on it anymore when one is for sale.
  5. Hi Adam

    May i ask you about the scan of the Clarion GT-R body instructions again? 
    I want to make the body correctly boxart, that's why i'd really appreciate to have a look in it.

    Many thanks in advance



  6. I used to have that exact model. It's all metal Chassis, Was a very interesting layout, with electric starter to get the engine running. Though, i always thought it looks like Chitty Bang Bang that's why i sold it some time ago
  7. Thanks a lot for that. However, I have slight doubts about the correctness. I tend to prefer PS-33 Cherry Red myself, but I'm not sure. The colour has to fit for sure, because the pink also appears in the decals - looks pretty crappy if the colour doesn't match.
  8. Just wanted to ask if anybody could help me out with a scan of the Body instructions of 44003 . (Seems that there never was a seperate manual for the 44003, they all had the chassis manual 44002 included). Or - at least- could someone let me know the correct paint codes needed to paint this body (boxart)? Many thanks in advance
  9. Apart from the bad quality of the decals as you say, I notice 2 details which are faulty (at least that's my assumption - of course I don't know how the decals should be in the original): Powerd by Mugen should be called Powered. The "O" at the big "Sport" looks to me like turned by 90°. Anyway, it looks somehow funny...
  10. Absolutely gorgeous ! Thanks a lot mate ! Made my day
  11. My better half was also not very enthusiastic at that time to drive around in the middle of nowhere for hours. If you want I can send you some pictures of what the area looks like today. Some spots from the movie are still recognizable today.
  12. Geeez !! You are my hero ! I wanted to do this for Ages but my building skills are different minded. This is my all time fav movie and I am a DUEL -fan since i have seen the movie as a kid. Been visiting the filming locations during my last US-holidays (spent two extra days driving around Soledad Canyon Area to find all the top spots ). This is a fantastic build - especially the Fruehauf Trailer is absolutely spot on ! Hope you intend to do a vid with it running ??
  13. To be honest, i don't know what i actually have , as i started storing boxes also at my partents home and in the Company i work. Think it must be around 40 or 50 cars. Problem is: When a phase of willpower comes over me and I want to make a model to finish it, I often don't know where I stowed it. So I let it stay again.
