  1. This used and abused Trinity Tru-Lathe to keep care of my brushed motors
  2. Years ago I did the same and to be sure I emailed Corally, at that time several spares were available yet (brushes, springs, armatures and many others) but I don't know if today it's the same, If I'm not wrong something is changed about Corally.
  3. I've received thees two guys purchased on Ebay, some work to do.
  4. New motor arrived... car still without body
  5. Honestly no, I will do it asap... in doubt I've bought anoter one of this motor 36200 rpm with a handwritten "13x6" on its pack. It's on his way.
  6. Several year ago I bough the motor shown below NIP but without any identifications or without any possibilities to know year and model... there is only a handwritten label "team tested 27500 rpm".
  7. Sorry for delay in replying, the point is what you intend to do: keeping the car as original as possible or starting a slow fall in the modify / upgrade addiction? To be sincere, today, I would not made the same modify. However Tamiya spares catalog could be helpful to find the simpliest solution in both cases. IMO the easiest way is findig 2mm steering rods with a proper length and use 50633 ball ends also on the servo horn but if yuo need to beef up to 3mm steering rod keeping the original uniballs you have to switch to proper ball ends. Sorry for bad english
  8. I love this build (959 is the Tamiya that caught my attention in my childhood) and, to be honest, the Mf-01x is becoming interesting to me: it looks tidy and clean without much of the modern complications that make modern rc cars looking like home appliances. Thanks for sharing
  9. A pair of Blitzer chassis for my next restomod project
  10. I'm slowly working on the body that needs extra attention because I want to paint the windows seals instead to use the stickers. In the search for the definitive set up for cables I've accidentally switched on the ESC so I've fried it... it will be swapped wit a brand new Mtroniks TT60. This car grows but I'm definetely tired, it's impossible to wait a full week and work on it for only a pair of hours.
  11. Looks great with yellow wheels!
  12. So the search for the body is finished where it was begun. New Ko Propo ESC ready to be installed for a japanese quality set up.
  13. Unfortunately the Alfa body lost its beautiful and classy shape after cutting it and I'm doing several attempts to carry it back to its original silhouette; my last is about tying it like my mother's sunday roast, to apply some hot air with an hairdryer and let it cool before removing that twine. Last week the target seemed to be reached, I will check if saturday the result is permanent.
  14. A Ko PropoVFS-FR2 ESC for my Lancia 037/Alfa Romeo Giulia TA01
