  1. Hi Jed, I can't believe I've only just found this on here. It really is a great read, and look forward to any future installments. I've just read the entire thread, and mentioning my Terra Scorcher making a brief appearance on your first outing, I think I need to run it again. I never knew you had such an interest in the cars themselves .... great to read. Reading about your first visit to the race meeting with your friends, takes me back to my first race meeting, with race control at one of of the school hall, and a stage for the drivers at the other. I couldn't believe the speed and skill of the drivers with ... two drivers standing out in particular ... one with a black procat, and the other with a silver Manta Ray converted with a carbon double deck chassis. And the car I turned up with that night, was my Terra Scorcher ... 23 years ago (September 1991) .... I need to get that car out and running around again.. Thanks again for the read, and I look forward to the next installment. Chris.

  6. Terra Scorcher is prepped and ready to go...... http://www.oople.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=40546&d=1343374490
  7. For those that don't know, as part of the Oople Invernational 2012, this Friday @ 7pm is a vintage race. There are a few Tamiyas in there, including my Terra Scorcher: GAINSY - TAMIYA FOX NORTHY - RC10 6 GEAR GRAPHITE MARK SUTCLIFFE - MARDAVE METEOR STU EVANS - RC10 6 GEAR JAMIE PATON - RC10 6 GEAR JAMES BURGESS - TAMIYA GRASSHOPPER ANTHONY POTTER - TAMIYA GRASSHOPPER CRAIG MAWSON - MRC MRX 2WD JIM DIXON - KYOSHO OPTIMA PHIL CAMPBELL - TAMIYA MANTA RAY CHRIS PATTINSON - TAMIYA TERRA SCORCHER I've got no idea how my Terra Scorcher will do, it has period Futaba MC210CB ESC, and a 23T stock motor, other than that, it is stock. I have refreshed the shock seals and oil, but it hasnt turned a wheel in 22 years. I'll try to get a video of the race, I suspect some of the other cars will be running much faster brushless gear...... I just hope there are no breakages.
