  1. I have a shock mount that fits the back of an Avante (if you drill out the rivets and bolt it on). It has a part number on it 53039. It looks to be machined from pale green frp. It appears to have a Tamiya label on it. Anyone seen this before? kind regards Jez
  2. Are these what you’re after?
  3. I think the black motor mount is a bit different from the CS. Motor mounted on opposite side, fixing holes slightly different and is different shape on base. regards Jez
  4. Hiya Ste, I’ve got a couple of Cat2000 ECs that I’m willing to sell. At least I think they are. Let me know if you’re interested. regards Jez
  5. SuperChamp82, Are you just looking at different 956’s? Or differences between 956, Tom’s and Newman? The early 956s had 2 holes on the mechanism deck for the 2 support stays. Did this change on the 956 too when the Tom’s was issued which has 4 support stays?
  6. I don’t want to promote the ebay auction but it looks genuine to me. Look at the artwork. It’s really well painted and the story sounds plausible. The shape of her bottom is different from my 2008 one as is the signature and the panel on my Wendy’s back is blank- giving the impression it was made in 2004 then signed and sold later. On the down side, why would you sell your Wendy - after seeing this one on eBay I bought a WW2 body which I’ll try and fit to a chassis. That said, if I had the cash I’d take a punt- it’s down to £170 atm😉 Jez
  7. I see there is one on eBay at the moment. BTW what do you use to glue the head and arms onto the body? Grizy
  8. Royal Mail uses a variety of machines to sort the mail. Make sure you package delicate parts well. If you make the package > 50mm thick it should be too big to be put through the machines. If you use Special Delivery your package should be sorted by hand, so there's less chance of it getting damaged Grizy
  9. Back in the day I had a second hand Super Champ, so had to use rubber balloons to waterproof it. Alloy components used to bend and break regularly, especially the back end, every time I whacked it into a kerb. Great to driveround the street, many a 15min of fun with todays batterys it'll go for ever. Grizy
  10. The TEU101bk supplies power to the receiver at 7.2v, so you stand a chance of damaging the receiver and servo if the receiver doesn't have BEC. Grizy
  11. If you claim an item you haven't recieved is damaged how do you return it for a refund?
  12. From your pictures it looks like you've got the makings of a real shelf queen there. Very nice. Don't know much about removing paint, but search the forum and you'll find what you need. Good luck with the restoration. It's already looking good. Post more pics as you go ;-) Grizy

    Might have to do just that. I was hoping that if I can set up the ESC I can put the radio settings (Spektrum DX3) back to neutral and if the signal is lost or Rx battery power too low it would cut power to the motor? Would that be right or do I still need a failsafe? Cheers Grizy

    Fg Touring Car

    Thanks to all for the replies. Finally put some batteries in the car - 2 x 9.6v 3700mAh vapextech and a reciever battery. The car has an els-200 esc. When I plug in the batteries for the esc the motor runs, with or without the reciever & Tx switched on. Has anyone got any instuctions how to set up the esc? Do I need the sepparate battery for the reciever - I've seen a spec that says the esc has bec? I adjusted the radio trim so that I could test the car, loads of wheel spin if you gun it, but i'm worried that when it loses Tx signal it's not going to stop until it hits something. Can't risk that happening so it's a big paperweight at the mo. Any info much appreciated. Cheers Grizy
  15. Hey Rabidmushroom, Any news on your ESC. Have you sent it for repair? Is it working again. Keep us informed. If you need a replacement I might know where there's one to be had fairly cheap Grizy
