  1. I can't believe tamiya would do this to such loyal lovers of there products. I will never buy another rerelease kit or part or anything else from tamiya. Unless its a vintage part from an individual. Tamiya needs to step up and make the products we need. If they don't want to make them, they got no right telling others they can't. Whats a matter tamiya? Afraid someone else is gonna make a dollar off your name. What about all the tamiya loyal people on this club and all the money they have spent making you rich. I think tamiya is the one who is not loyal! I feel betrayed
  2. Does anyone know what happen to the repro stickers. No body is selling them anymore. What happen while I was out enjoying my summer.

    Dumpster find (58001)

    Well bud, I know you got all the body parts and stickers you need for this now. And just in case you need the color description. Its PS-54 cobalt green for the body and TS-34 camel yellow for the front air dam. The PS colors are made for lexan bodies but the only difference is the flex agent that they add to the paint so it doesn't chip off a flexible lexan body. It will work just fine on the styrene body. And make sure to get two cans of the green, if your painting the inside of the body too. I can't wait to see your car with its new body. Its gonna be so sweet. I wonder which one of us will finish first?
  4. Got bored after watching for 2 minutes and nothing was being driven.

    What Grid Sandpaper?

    I use 320 to start with. It does leave little scratches, but primer fills them right in. Paint does not. I use 1500 grit for between coats and for my very last coat. I cut it down with 6000 micro-mesh. Then polish to glass like finish. I use the 1500 mostly. 320 only for stripping paint. Brake fluid works better.

    What C Rating For Lipo Batteries?

    Perfect! Also a higher C rated battery can be charged faster at a higher charge rate. I love lipo power and brushless systems. I put them in everything. But I have OCD when it comes to RC. Ha, ha, ha. So don't most on TC. I fell right at home

    Snow Boating

    That is absolutely spectacular! I would never have thought that would work. Just the right boat. Just the right snow conditions. But it worked. AWESOME!
  13. Nice little video. If I was in the race, I would want to be at the controls of the hornet. With a pistol grip of course.
  14. I love this thread. I have gotten some great advise. Now I need to give it a try.
