  1. Have you checked yeah racing or 3racing for parts yet? Found a handful on 3racing's site
  2. TA01 Aluminum gear cover $10 shipped -more if you're not in the states TRF501X Rear Knuckle Arm $10 shipped-ditto
  3. Well today I got something I never expected to get: Tamiya's Gb01 Aeration Oil Filled Dampers. I was researching parts for the TamTech series and came across these on the TamiyaUSA site. I thought it had to be a mistake, so I ordered, thinking I would get an email within a day or so telling me that it was a mistake. Nope. I grossly overpaid for them, mostly because I was thinking they had just made a mistake on their site. I have 5 TT gear cars, all in their boxes and only one run on the ground (the GB03 Hotshot). the Hornet, Fox, Frog and the the Buggy Champ. Which one deserves these dampers? IMG_8007 2.HEIC
  4. I may have what you are looking for. Will have to sort through my collection... Will get back to you
  5. That post is absolutely the most comprehensive I've ever seen when it comes to builds. Not sure I'm going to do mine anymore now.
  6. Thanks Jon. I have ordered the dampers you recommended. I'm really looking forward to this build. It will be the 1st in a couple of years and certainly the one I have spent the most time curating hop-ups for.
  7. So a little over a year ago I ordered an XV-01 long damper kit from Omni models. It was on backorder at the time, but I was willing to wait. Well one month turned into 3 and then I was finally told that Tamiya had discontinued the kit. All the while I was waiting on the kit from OM, I had been stockpiling hop-ups. The problem is, I was getting parts for the long damper kit. The ones that are actually in question are the carbon damper stays. Also, I believe I got the completely wrong dampers for this kit. I bought the TRF Special Damper set, which is apparently intended for touring cars. I was/am stuck. I have a whole bunch of parts that I may or may not be able to use, and I decided to buy the standard XV-01 kit to avoid a total loss. Plus this is the car I really wanted when I was building the DF-03RA but it hadn't been produced yet. I ended up selling the DF-03RA a while back and it was never used. Can anyone who has built either the long damper or standard kit advise me on what parts I have that are usable. If I use the carbon damper stays (54581, 54582), what dampers can I use? Any help would be much appreciated. When I start building, I will post a good and robust thread.
  8. While I understand your needing to step away, I just want to vocalize what others may have not. It is possible that you haven't garnered as much discussion, respect, kudos, attention as your posts deserved. Speaking for myself, when I look at scratch builds and mods etc that are way out of my league in terms of ability and willingness to spend X amount of time and money on a project, it is often intimidating. Not in a negative way, just enough to have me gawk at the photos and either submit a short "Great shots/job" and move on. I know I can't add anything to the discussion. I appreciate good craftsmanship in anything, whether it's furniture, an rc build or just my toothbrush. I originally found TC because I was looking for an answer to a question after coming back to RC cars in my mid 30's. I took a break due to life and have found myself back here because now I have someone to share this hobby with in the form of my 12 year old stepson. Maybe you'll come back, maybe you won't but no one will ever have a handle as cool as yours.
  9. Hi Kev, I might have these. I will check in the morning. Bought a bunch of metal parts bags when I happened upon a vintage WO many years ago.
  10. Hello all, I double bought some unneeded items and am selling them at cheaper than ebay prices. TA Silver B parts $25 TA Blue Alloy Gear Cover by Yeah Racing $20 DB01 Blue Alloy Rear Knuckle Arms $5 Hotshot Front wheels $5 Shipping is $7 priority for the TA silver parts and $2 apiece for the others in US. Anyone international interested, pm me and I can get a shipping quote. I will sell the bundle for $40
  11. I have a set of the clear ones that came with my M chassis. Can't remember if it's the 4 or 5. I'm pretty sure they will fit on an M3 though. As soon as my mom ships my stuff, I can find them. I also have the black shocks that came with my TA03 SW. Not sure if those'll fit.
  12. Wow that is fast granddad. What motor/esc/battery setup are you running?
  13. Oooh I like that. Never really been much for trucks, except the vintage Tamiya's, but this looks like it could be a lot of fun. Especially on that chassis.
