  1. Hi, Does anybody have a Carimsa M14 Mini? I bought one last week but it appears the receiver / esc is broke. There doesn't appear to be any manuals online and the distributer has tried to help by supplying an exploded parts diagram, but I was hoping to get a parts list and instructions if they are available? I'm going to speak to a local electronics whizz to see if the ESC / Receiver can be brought back to life, otherwise I'll have to replace everything but the motor. The servo is a five wire thing just to make things worse, although I think I can get a standard one in there provided I cut off the mountings. Any help would be appreciated. Best regards Alan
  2. Hi, Does anybody have the part above for a M03 or FF02 Chassis? Willing to pay a reasonable amount for the part. Please let me know if you have it and are willing to sell? Best regards, Alan
  3. Well, I won an FF02 on eBay last night so I'm eagerly awaiting its delivery. I didn't win my first choice and there are quite a few issues with the chassis I won but I'm sure It'll all be OK in the end. Now I need to start looking for the spares I know I'll need and see if they are still available and out there at reasonable prices. I had an XR311 when I was a kid and then nothing until the early 2000's when my wife bought me a 306 Maxi for a birthday present. I ran it and bashed it and eventually sold it on, but it started my collecting and now with over 40 cars the time is right to get one again and this time look after it properly. Thanks for your help and advice.
  4. Hi, Thanks for your reply's. I bought the body and I have to say I'm happy with it. Got some white paint coming at the weekend and if the weather stays fine I'll get it painted and the stickers applied. Not sure which chassis to put it on yet. I'd love an original FF02 but they are getting scarce. Thanks again - Alan
  5. Hi, Just wondering if you ever bought the L&L body kit and how you Got on with it Regards, Alan
  6. I'm with DrGoatboy on this - I just saw an ad for a great car and wanted to buy it - Although I'm seriously concerned of where the topic has gone off on a tangent :-)
  7. Hi, I'm interested - Had a Wild Dagger years ago and always regret selling. Would you take £65.00 + postage? Best regards, Alan
  8. Hi, Anybody in the UK built their Super Astute and not used the large Super Astute Decal (the one on the rear wing) I'm happy to pay - Managed to mess mine up and I'd like to replace it without paying for a whole sheet. Best regards, Alan
  9. Hi Thanks for all your help and advice. The shell is the ABC M Chassis shell. Rather than mess around I may just try and pick up the Colt or HPI shell with the stickers included. Its a pity, because I think the ABC shell looks the best, but I did have the HPI shell and it looked great on a modified M04 chassis. Thanks everybody for your help. Alan
  10. Hi everybody, Hopefully someone out there has already done this and can help. I recently bought a ABC Hobbies Lancia Stratos Shell. I then picked up a set of Carson Stickers for the Alitalia car. The problem is the stickers appear to be too large? I haven't tried applying them yet, but they just look a bit too big when placed next to the body. Am I worrying unnecessarily? or have I mad a mistake? If these are the wrong size, does anybody know of a set od stickers that will fit? thanks for your help in advance. Alan
  11. Hi, I have a full option Sherman, but I damaged one of the LED's on the front. I know tamiya do the whole lighting loom as a replacement part, but I only need 1 LED. All the rest work with no problems. Does anybody know if I can just wire in a new LED, and if so what would I need? Best regards, Alan
  12. I'm just thinking about when I've decal'd plastic kits. Then the decal goes on a glossed surface? I can try tonight with some of the smaller decals and see how things go. I need to get the large decal for the bonnet from somewhere as that was one of the ones that was used? Anybody got any ideas where I could get one of those? are anybody doing repro decals for the king blackfoot? Best regards,
  13. Hi, I'm pretty sure this should be OK because the newer kits like the reissue FAV are matt finish, but has anybody tried using old (king blackfoot) decals on a matt painted surface? I've got a kit which I've cleaned up and repainted. I used matt black paint and it looks really good. There is a partial decal sheet included and I was going to use them bur don't want to find them falling off in a couple of weeks? All thoughts and ideas appreciated. thanks Alan
  14. Hi, Thanks for your replies. We are keeping a close eye on ebay and gumtree. Nothing has appeared yet, I'm also going to go to the local cash converters type shops at the weekend just in case. Best regards, Alan
  15. Hi Everybody, Just wanted to post a heads up and ask for help if at all possible. On Monday evening / Tuesday morning this week somebody broke into my back garden and stole four of my cars that had been stored in one of our sheds. They took the following: 1 x Traxxas Slash in bright orange (Robby Gordon car). They took the car and battery in its box, but the transmitter wasn't with it. 1 x Tamiya XB Mini + battery (This has a union jack sticker on the roof from the additional tamiya decal set so is probably quite unique) 1 x Tamiya Ferrari 458 challenge TT02 in bright yellow (again this was in its box and had a battery and fly Sky receiver + ESC but no transmitter) 1 x Tamiya MO4 BMW Roadster with a HPI Lancia Stratos shell and a tamiya 205 shell. The M04 chassis was altered as described in the article on Black Hole sun's website to fitt the stratos bodyshell so again quite unique. This was again in the M Roadster box, with receiver and ESC, but no transmitter 2 x ECX Torment transmitters - Obviously they thought these were for the cars but hopefully they wont be able to get them to work. 1 x Fusion Vector charger. Of all the cars, probably the mini was in the worst shape. This belonged to my youngest son and the shell was a little cracked, but in no way was the car in poor condition. The other three were all *** new. The Traxxas had been run twice, the ferrari once and the M04 hadn't since a rebuild and the work to get the bodyshell to fit. As a rule I build my cars for the fun of the build, and not to run. They may drive about the living room, but that's it. They were all in excellent condition. The nice person that took my cars hopefully won't be able to get any of them to work without buying the correct transmitters, but I probably wont see them again. The cars had been moved into the shed for the weekend to allow me to have some work done in their usual storage location, and just hadn't been put back yet. The Police have been informed, and have visited and took all the details, and my insurance appears tb be covering my loss but if it was possible to get the cars back, or catch the *!*$$!* it would possibly make things a little better. If anybody has been approached, or sees anything like the above please drop me a message. Thanks, Alan
