  1. Only reason I mention is because my pics were taken in midday summer sunshine, and that's about as bright as it gets (in the above pic). Maybe the reflection on the polycarbonate is what makes yours seem lighter? I am unsure.
  2. Is that seriously PS-59 Dark Metallic Blue? Wow it looks much brighter than mine, and I backed mine with PS-12 Sliver and then PS-5 black. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
  3. None. Tamiyas AV was an acronym for Avante. It was one of the first to use a 0.6 mod pinion I believe.
  4. Not sure yet, Si. I haven't even decided what I am going to do chassis wise, yet ๐Ÿ˜Š
  5. Yeah I am guessing that too. They probably prefer to release the front section on a downward angle instead of pulling it towards the centre section and risk scratching/marking the polycarbonate. Yes it is a 239mm m-chassis body. Your mates car sounded nice. A friend of mine had a black S1 when we were young and I remember going on trips up the coast in it. ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Thanks. It's ok detail wise. The undercut under the front bumper is incorrect for a s3, even the boxart depicts it correctly, so it must be difficult to replicate with the mould. I am not sure what colour I am going to paint it yet. There is a gorgeous silver one with HPI cup racer wheels in the showrooms that I wouldn't mind doing it similar to, but will see...
  7. Loving the blacked out tread plate, gives the tanks more depth... almost tempted to steal your idea, as my KH might be coming apart again soon for a refurbish ๐Ÿคฃ
  8. Just fitted a pair of those to a M01 the other day ๐Ÿ‘ Got a card to call for this so went and picked it up from the store. I paid for it on the 30th of November, which isn't a problem, except for the fact it was sent EMS, so under normal circumstances it should be here 3-5 days. Even with a pandemic and the holiday season, I still think the delay is pitiful. ๐Ÿคจ
  9. Love the Tamiya Long Nose Non-Scratch Pliers, should have bought these a long time ago. Great for shock shafts, steering rods and all manner of building. Love my MIP Drivers, such a perfect fit and really good for undoing rubbish chinesium hex hardware. Tool I don't really understand the hype for. The E-clip tool. Got a 2mm and 4mm one, and find it nigh on useless for taking E-clips off, and a bit cumbersome for putting them on, when I can install them quicker with my Long Nose Non-Scratch Pliers... ๐Ÿ˜• Would also like a pit lamp as well, and a decent pit mat or cutting mat ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. We had a massive Marmite shortage in NZ a few years ago, pots of that were going for over $100! I remember mum buying Borvil when we were kids, but cannot remember what it tasted like... also haven't had malt vinegar on chips since about the same time, I was talking about this the other day with a Brit at work ๐Ÿ˜ฒ And yeah you can stick vegemite, rotten disgusting crud ๐Ÿคฎ
  11. It was a 'dad joke' reference to your rc buying habit snowballing, sorry ๐Ÿ˜„ Does rcjaz stuff get to you faster? The thing with RCMart for me is the 2 month wait for 'SF EXPRESS' and normally the faster option through FedEx is extortionate. Super dry Asahi, responsible for many a wandering finger ๐Ÿ˜‚ Those one piece are just one piece arms (I bought those too), Tamiya also do a separate 'reinforced' set for The M05/6, #54614 ๐Ÿ™‚ RE: V2 motor mount For: M05 Ver.II PRO and M05 Chassis variants Material: Aluminum Color: Blue This motor mount moves the motor position 1.5mm toward the center on the M-05 version 1 chassis. On the M-05 Ver.II chassis, it moves the motor 4.5mm toward center. Improves chassis balance and motor efficiency. Most of us at TamiyaClub will stop reading after the mention of 'Aluminium' and 'blue'... but as you can all see, there is other benefits ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„
  12. Is it snowing in Aus? ๐Ÿ˜„ Yes just the Version 2 A Parts and the motor mount. The downside is you will have to make something to hold the battery in. The V2 uses race tape to hold the pack in. There isn't a plastic end cap for square packs.
  13. Got up this morning made a strong coffee and decided to install some hop ups I've accumulated on some of my M cars while watching the sun come up. Me and the boy might head off to the beach soon with some RCs aswell since it looks like it's going to be another cracker of a day ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  14. Whoaaa!! Where the heck have you been?! Hope this isn't a one post wonder and you are sticking around a while! Yeah its amazing how 'lego' that horn is for a lot of late 90s Tamiyas. I need to get a few of those and the obligatory hi torque servo savers for my M03/4s ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  15. That's looking awesome mate! Just remember, you can't really 'over do' it. There really is no end to the condition some 1:1 containers are in.. scratched up panels, patches, stains, twist marks from not being picked up square, forklift damage, random stickers/marker pen writing from other countries... ๐Ÿ™‚
