  1. Good point ..it could be a wire or something...face on looks more the bumper has dropped ..but the shape of the door and flar don't help to see it in the pic ..but its down to OP to say if he wants it ...
  2. defo not closed up correct ..ask for pic of other side to confirm ...but can't see a XB being wrong ..but as above damage in transit of fallen off shelf display maybe ... Could be easy fix ..but until it gets strip down won't know ...
  3. Great ....Thanks for the pic ..Yep so the bag plus 3 ball bearings was my main concern ..but that has confirmed for me now.... Thanks again ...
  4. fingers crossed ...big strip down to find out ....lol
  5. In the topic of Egress ...those who have allready built or had one ...... Silly maybe ...but I am right as not many parts left over when built .apart from bits listed not used ..... As I purchased a ready built one ..Shelf queen etc ....But I don't mine an over haul ......BUT on opening box to be face with small people of parts ..screws and the locked Diff gear shall etc ....Only to find bag with 8 tiny ball bearings + 3 loose ....I know they are ones used in the diff build. the tiny ones off the center bolt .... but fear now car not been built correctly if these are still in the bag .... Just double checking these would not be spare on a model like this .....but looks like what I will be doing over weekend ......:(
  6. True at the moment things have gone crazy .. but i am in no rush for the TF .. until i knew the Egress was out ,I was allways a lover of that model first .. So one large payout will do .. for now ...lol
  7. Well I have cancelled my TC EVO pre order and my Egress order too ....Only as I lucky to buy Egress. one at a price pre built .but still better chance I add it to my collection over waiting with fingers crossed on a pre order being fulfilled... I choose the Egress over the TF EVO as a matter of taste and true what I think a great machine in looks and style ... I will how ever sit back and wait till a time the TF may be on sale at a better price no ...rush ...collection getting a little large now ....finding hard to hide so many from the wife....LOL...
  8. Well manage to get my name on a pre order list ..but Even the seller thinks delivery numbers won't meet the order number as the norm ...so I gamble at best anyway ... Think I would be more happy with the Egress over the TFE order I have on standby ...but can cover both bets I see what luck brings....
  9. Cheers buddy .Will go have a look
  10. Who has a pre order available on their Web site ..They all show on order but not a press to order button ....Maybe they hit their own order number and maxed out ....?
  11. Well long hard thinking i have pre ordered a TFE ... after myself turning down the rere TF last year for just £169 ... O well not letting another get away . but i do fancy the Egress next ...
  12. blast from the past .... Cardiff was my store ...we go into town with a group of us ..do the shops and allways the model shops ..beaties being the main one large two floors ..cars on demo crowds all around as you say someone was looking at a kit readyvto buy .. Mt first kit was a Hornet .came with a 1200 battery andgot a free carry bag to put all in ..the black and yellow ones ..my mate had grasshopper .soon upgraded as the hornet was faster ..Then sold it on to get a Monster Beetle when it first cameout ..then up grade again selling all the old ones to kids in school ,as we would take them in the use on break times on tennis court or wet day in the gym ..you would just see a large group follow us around to watch us race up and down ..My mate went on to get a Clodbuster ..(selling fags to the kids to get money)..I still had the Hornet .one day he ran over the front of mine only to snap the shock arm ..So another excuss to go back on saturday and get parts ...but we found beaties did not help us out as much as parts .well had to order in ..so we had another shop BUD MORGANS ..small shop with SOOO much stuff on shelves and in boxes of kits ..spares and parts ...It was here we had our eyes open to what we could really do with the cars .etc.. Sad times ..never notice the shops stop selling and i left RC for a long time ... I even recall Argos selling Tamiya..only two kits i recall ...Hornet ..and the Lunch box ...even they stopped doingvthe build kits and only do the ready yo go models now ... Good old day's....
  13. i had to stop at 10 cars for now and still have two in box waiting .. my mancave is in my atic … away from the wifes eyes and moans ... my list of wants is allways getting bigger , but end up paying out on all the mods for one car that I can buy another two with ….good work great thread ... Q...them wheel hangers , will they hold the monster beetle or need larger ones ..?
  14. Thanks ģuys ...was just a quick look at it...but fancy a play about ...but will just build it up and see how it goes first ....
  15. OK been away busy ,but bug got to me again .. since I last was on my little collection has grown to 9 … but had to even the number out so I went and got myself a novafox ...allways liked the look of these from a few of you guys displays and the box art does do it well …..no pics yet only just got the box …. BUT question on the build …. looking at the set up the rear gearbox ….? ,, am I right in thinking its the same as the hotshot ..? .. if so maybe worth throwing a MIP diff into it ...Is it worth it as I want to allways go above the standard can … ( I already have them here to go into the superhotshot ) but just call it practise to put them in this ..IF its the same model ...
