  1. I've been away from the forums for about a year, came back to this fantastic news. My dad bought be a super champ second hand when I was a kid, we both knew nothing about RC cars and when the electronics gave up we didn't know how to fix them. I didn't even know or understand what the car was. It was only when I started buying the kits as an adult that I remembered the super champ. I've been waiting for this re-release for years. WOOHOO!
  2. Comes with tamiya ESC, superstock motor and steering servo. Just needs radio gear.
  3. Would prefer to sell complete. I have the mirrors and spoiler, just not fitted yet. You could buy complete and sell the rest?
  4. Hi Folks, One photo of each, contact me if you're interested: Calibra Cliff - TA-03F Chassis - New build, never been driven, shelf queen - Rare car in this condition £180 Astra DTM - TT-01 Chassis, Chassis is used, has a hairline crack (only £12 for a new chassis), running upgraded shocks, one is cracked.

Almost shelf queen, has a brand new ball diff, was driven once, car rolled slowly and has very very minor scratching to roof decals. New decals would correct. chassis is as/new and no marks.

  5. Thanks. It's paid now and I'll find out why it's so high when it arrives :-)
  6. Hi folks, I ordered a RSR Porsche (GT01) from hong kong. Got it cheaper than in the UK and thought it would arrive ok as all my parts usually come from Hong Kong. However got a letter today from parcel force asking for £35.31 VAT and £8 handling charge. Does this amount sound right? The car only cost £68 plus postage so £35.31 vat sounds excessive to me. Has anyone got kits sent from abroad without incurring any charges? I'd like to know if this is really common as I'll know in future to just buy in the UK. Keith
  7. Can anyone recommend a 7.4v lipo to fit the buggy champ? Thanks Keith
  8. The rough rider was re-released on its 30th birthday -2009, same for the sand scorcher -2010. The super champ was released in 1982 so 2012 is 30 years, but so far there is no mention of a re-release. It was my first proper rc car as a child, I no longer have it, so I'm really hoping they re-release it!
  9. Didn't get any tamiya this Christmas. So instead bought myself a Porsche RSR on the GT-01 chassis. Cant wait for it to arrive :-)
  10. Can anyone find me a SRB diff for sale? They seem to be no longer serviced and there isn't even any on eBay :-( Help :-) Keith
  11. Just pray that they re-re the super champ. 2009 = 30th anniversary of the buggy champ, and a re-re 2010= 30th anniversary of the sand scorcher, and a re-re 2012 will be the 30th anniversary of the super champ...... PLEASE MR TAMIYA!
  12. I got my Buggy Champ on ebay for £207 with free delivery. Ebay seems to be your best bet!
  13. I'm assumeing they are alot more stable than say a Grasshopper? I've learned how to drive my sport tuned grasshopper without putting it on its roof (difficult) I remember my Super Champ being really good, but I was about 7/8 and it was probably on the standard motor, and it ran the standard Nicad tamiya batteries, so probably wasnt very quick!
  14. Thanks for all your help! Love your RR, looks much better in blue! Getting excited now, but cant help but think mine will be delayed in the post with the bad snow we're having! LOL
  15. My family haven't got me any tamiyas, so with my bonus from work I've bought a RERELEASE Rough Rider! Got it for £209 with free delivery (includes esc) which I thought was cheap! :-)
  16. Thanks! How strong are they? I remember my SRB when I was about 8, nothing broke at all no matter how much abuse it got! It eventually died n the beach with water, but back then I didn't have the knowlage to save it :-( I want to do mine blue, do you know the TS code? Cheers
  17. I've spoke before about how I owned a super champ as a kid, so to help relive it I've bought the closest car to it, the RE-RE rough rider. It should arrive late this week, any tips/upgrades/hop ups I should buy before I build it? Cheers Keith
  18. Nice buggy, I'd consider one just to have! Still hoping they re-re the Super Champ!!
  19. What battery do you run? And whats the run-times like?
  20. I'd fancy a superstock motor really! I just need to get a BC bought now!, £224 is the best price i've found so far.
  21. I'm after a very good condition Super Champ. Would also Concider a New Build or NIB example. Cheers
