  1. Not from the postie but a local Facebook Marketplace find, 3 Schumacher buggies and a Tamiya Striker for £40! I've never owned a Schumacher before, all 3 need a good clean, but came with some old am27 radios and a couple of motors, will post up some pictures when I next pop down my container. I may sell the Striker yet as I do already have one, though it's hardly been run, sadly has no stickers on it, but a good place to start for a runner or possible shelf-queen.
  2. Postie kindly dropped off a new Skyrc battery charger, waiting on some servos, then I need to buy some new radio gear. All mine is hidden away in my container, hopefully I'll get to find it all in the summer so I can get back into RC properly again and finish off or start some long-term projects. I've really missed my man cave and need it back! Coming soon I hope!
  3. I think I have a GO version of the Pumpkin somewhere as well, I'm sure I got it from someone on here or a bootsale, either way, the chassis is exactly the same as the Tamiya QD one. I don't have a picture of the pinion, but from memory is only got around 6-8 teeth on it and is quite long with a small pin that sticks out on the end, I assume to locate the pinion on the other side of the gearbox. A quick Google came up with this:
  4. You can do quite a lot to these. When I first got my QD Clod, it was in a bad way, but then it was a freebie so can't complain, plus you can always repair or make something better! Mine has evolved quite a bit from when I got it, been lucky and found spares on eBay which are hard to come by now. Originally I was running the QD Black motor which Tamiya says doesn't fit, but it does if you swap the pinion over, which can be bit of a faff, but if I can do it.....!!! When I 1st got it 46012: Clod Buster from lupogtiboy showroom, My Son's QD Clodbuster - Tamiya RC & Radio Control Cars (tamiyaclub.com) Lightly modded 46012: Clod Buster from lupogtiboy showroom, My Son's QD Clod, Few Updated Pics - Tamiya RC & Radio Control Cars (tamiyaclub.com) I got rid of the standard RC board inside and fitted a mechanical speed controller from a TT-01, now upgraded to an ESC, and I also swapped the front servo for a trusty Futaba one, had to Dremmel the mounting eyelets off to fit, but went straight in after the mod. Couple that with some 'proper' radio gear instead of the toy-like Tamiya controller, and you have a great little basher! Mine is now fitted with a Grasshopper rear gearbox and a 540 motor, makes it a hoot! I also have a few QD buggies, one is converted to brushless, and that is pretty nippy! 46012: Clod Buster from lupogtiboy showroom, QD Clod with Grasshopper Box! - Tamiya RC & Radio Control Cars (tamiyaclub.com) All in all, these are fun to mod and fun to bash around with.
  5. Here's my Flying Fox Soaring thru the air badly It didn't end well
  6. These are fun fun FUN! Get one, you won't regret it!
  7. For me, I want to get back into RC again, having been away from it for around 5 years due to a change in circumstances. I still have my collection, I've added a few to it over the last month or so as well. I need to sort out my storage container so I can reinstate a 'man cave' and have somewhere to do all the things I used to do when I had my old man cave. I have a few restorations to do now, thanks to a good friend giving them to me for nowt! Not everyday you get gifted a 58001 Porsche (needs a lot of love and parts!), a 58018 Ralt RT2 Hart 420R (also needs attention, but mostly there!) and a 58043 Grasshopper! I also have the Audi V8 to build as well, along with a Honda City Turbo I bought from Simon (Grumpy pants) many years ago with some added goodies! So along with a lot of building, I have a lot of sorting to do too, so guess I'll be busy this year!
  8. My Super Clodbuster. So much fun, so many mods that can be done. If you watch any Monster Jam videos, you will see that it behaves like a proper monster truck. The car that started it all for me when I was 16, a TA-01 Lancia Delta Integrale. I smashed the shell, bought another shell and restored it. I'll never part with it.
  9. And Time Tunnel Models are doing the Audi V8 without the ESC and radio gear for £105! I've got to wait until Christmas for mine, but finally have a kit to look forward to building after a few years away from the hobby. Just need to find all my RC gear that's in storage!
  10. Was going to say, it hadn't back when I posted that back in 2008!
  11. For someone who isn't a 'modeller', I think you can safely say that you are! This is incredible!
  12. Thanks guys, I'll give that a go! The really annoying thing is I'm sure I've got some in my spares pile somewhere, I just don't know whereabouts in my storage container they are!
  13. This isn't my one (SRBSVEN was selling this a while ago, I just googled it for the image!), but I have one of these in my collection too, still need to try it out though....
  14. Does anybody have a spare set of driveshafts and the outer gearbox cups for a TL-01B? Thank you Martin
  15. I also have this Porsche 936, not a Tamiya one though. There's one on eBay at the moment for a stupid £350!! I bought this for £10 at a bootsale!
