    Classic touring cars 90s era

    Oh man this thread is up my alley. I'm a group A touring car nut, as I crew on a mate's group A Starion in Heritage Touring Cars here in Australia, he's restoring a group A RS500 at the moment too. I also own a group A Isuzu Gemini, which is the aussie version of the Opel Kadett C. I have 2 of those M chassis Carson Kadett shells, and a 1:1 Gemini coupe. Racers Paradise in Germany has done a very good 1:10 touring car version of the Kadett C coupe. I'll post some pics of my group A Tamiya soon, I have 2x R32 GTR Calsonic skylines (both liveries), a Auto Tech M3 (a mate owns the actual real car), the Taisan R32 GTR (just bought it from Japan), can't wait for the rere HKS GTR kit. I also have my original Taisan Porsche, 95 Castrol Supra and Clarion R33 GTR LM. Most of my cars are TA02 derivatives, the Taisan is on a HPI longitudinal battery chassis kit. Oh and I forgot, I have a Lancer Evo obsession so I have a ABC Evo 3, Tamiya Evo 4, 5 6 and 7 aswell haha.

    The ACTUAL 959!

    Reference pics anyone? https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1117549_paris-dakar-porsche-959-to-be-first-of-its-kind-to-cross-auction-block
  4. Interestingly, the real Auto Tech M3 now lives right near me at Buderim in Australia and is totally unrestored and in very good original condition as last raced. A friend bought it from Japan about 4 years ago with the Shimizu Sierra RS500 and a BMW M1 ProCar. I have loads of detail shots of the M3 on my old phone which died...

    Hot temps for NIB's

    Here in Australia it's regularly near 40 degrees in summer in the shade so calm down guys! Your kits won't melt unless in direct sunlight or in a non ventilated box of a room, and even then i don't think 30 degrees ambient would worry them!

    The correct way to say TAMIYA

    All you need to remember is that there are no long vowel sounds in Japanese.
  7. Does anyone know if any suppliers do a more scale 1/10th replica of the BBS R50 wheels on the real car? I suppose SSR Mesh drift rims would be closest?

    Tamiya ta02 frp

    Oh man I'd love that front sway bar! I have a wide track converted carbon ta02 with cross racing arms and unis. The arms are delrin so a lot stiffer than the original but don't have the weight of the alloy gpm arms i have on another one.

    How does the Egress run?

    My egress is a blast to drive with a sensored 8.5 in it. No problems with diffs and it's been run a lot!

    TA06 bits

    Hi Sven, I have a very incomplete ta06 so I'll check what I need to complete it and let you know what I'm after.
  13. I believe I have a partial set mate I'll have a look for you.
  14. EzRun 12T system in a Blitzer using the 15 tooth pinion is spot on I think, that's what we run at Boondall and it just starts to wheelstand halfway down the straight, will wheelstand from stop if you punch it.
