  1. Hello, Are you still looking for parts? I have one almost complete save for a broken arm at the front. I was planning on repairing and selling it on Ebay, proceeds to my favorite Charity. Let me know if of interest, 'as-is'?
  2. Dear Pals, Wondering if anyone can help with a pinion query. I have just changed the spur on my nephew's DF02 to a 55T, but I cannot find a pinion to fit, as the 55T has a smaller diameter than the original 61T. Anyone know which pinion is needed for this setup? Thanks
  3. There's also a car called the 'Quakewave' which is essentially the same model.
  4. Dear All, I was planning on working on this car as a project, however have now changed my mind. I've done very little on it save for replacing an upright. The car is seemingly mechanically sound, but there is a repair to the part that connects to the upright. The chassis and electrics seem to be in good condition, but are untested. I am only looking to sell it for what I purchased it for. £220 (Friends) plus postage. Collection welcomed and preferred. (Windsor/Slough/West London)
  5. I thought this would make some of you laugh, perhaps others cry. Maybe I deserved it, after-all, it's a Top Force with DF03 Avante wheels and a Manta Ray shell. https://photos.app.goo.gl/5Z9uDNMvnjTM3YoG7 Apologies for Rob's colorful language
  6. Dear All, I let someone drive my original Top Force into a barrier yesterday at top speed..... ...Would anyone a couple of ball diffs and front gearbox housing? Thanks in advance
  7. Dear All, I am in the process of doing a light refurb on an original 'Top Force Evolution'. I require the wing assembly parts , two if possible please. I can't seem to find these anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Hello. Is that the rear or front? I have some bits and will have a look..
  9. Really appreciate the ebay wisdom,. I'd already started this one. I have decided to follow your logic and started one for my Avante 2001 starting at £1. Thanks again.
  10. Hi Marc, I def have two somewhere. If you PM your address, I'll pop them in the post.
  11. The clear out continues. Under the guise of a summer project for my nephew, this was purchased. I neither have the will power, stamina or money to strip this down or start tinkering with it. It seems to be in good general order. I have never powered it on, however the gearbox seems fine. The body is not great for a 'shelf queen', more for driving around. It has a couple of repairs to it, and someone has over sprayed blue onto the rear shocks. What I believe you'd need to do to make it into a spiffing example: New shoes, complete strip/clean new or re painted shell and new under tray. I can send more detailed photos on request. Looking for £310 incl. postage or near offer Will keep here for a couple of days and probably ebay if nothing happens.
  12. Cheers Wills £1k? People are crazy! That's a family holiday! I got it for £460 and was hoping something similar. I've put it on Ebay now so am at mercy of bidders. I've been getting offers of £250 - £350 - I'm holding out!
  13. I really went a little mad last year. I call having the lockdown blues. I also have an Avante 2001 which I really shouldn't have purchased. Oh and a Kyosho Ultima and some other random bits which I bought in lots. Ugh.
  14. Thanks for the advice, much appreciated. It owed me £460 including postage, but would probably take around £400 for it. I'll probably put it up on auction starting at £300 and see what happens. I totally agree with you on the buy it now, it's never worked for me either. Awesome.
  15. Dear All, I went slightly mad last year. Seeing prices go up, watching too much 'RCKicks' and 'Tamiya Legends', I was spurred onto buying loads of bits in the fear that they'd become too expensive for me to ever afford again. Now that the reality of space, kids, money and wife have dawned, I am trying to sell some of the cars that I purchased in haste. This Avante Black has never been used. It was purchased to sit on the shelf as I'd daren't drive it. I was going to put it on Ebay tomorrow, but would really appreciate any pointers on what they are worth now? I can't find a single assembled one for sale as a comparator. The car came with a brushless system, but have no clue on the spec. Any pointers really appreciated. Here's a photo:
  16. Hello, what car would this pertain to? Would you have a photo of the washer?
  17. Dear Community, I would appreciate some advice. Having seemingly ruined five or six Lipos in the past, I have used resorted to using a bunch of NIMH batteries which I purchased around eight years ago. Now that these have started to have started to come to the end of their usable life, I am thinking about giving Lipos another go. At present, I have a 'Pro Peak (yellow)' Nimh charger and an 'Etronix Power Pal' Lipo charger. I find the Etronix horribly fiddly and inconsistent. I am a casual user and require an idiot proof charger that could charge ALL of my batteries (that doesn't cost the earth). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  18. This is a bit of an odd one, possibly. I have always wanted an Egress to drive (as opposed to sitting on a shelf) and managed to get an original one this summer. However, as it's a runner, someone has advised me that the 'rerelease' would have been better for this. Would anyone want to swap their rerelease model for my original one? Assuming that they're worth the same? It has a Carson 2.4ghz controller, silver can and Tamiya ESC. I have treated it with much care on the rare occasion it was driven. If so, I will pop PM some photos. Thanks for reading.
  19. Dear All, Happy New Year Now, firstly, apologies if it's not permitted to sell a non-Tamiya - will delete if someone lets me know. This was purchased in a lot, I know absolutely nothing about these cars. It looks to have been used only very lightly. For some reason, the previous owner was running it as a 2wd. prop shaft included. I have very briefly driven it and it seems fine. The shell has some repairs to it, but the chassis seems to be driven lightly. I've seen them sold new for £140 so was asking for £70 incl postage and Paypal fees.
  20. One of Tamiya's finest cars. Probably the finest handling and most powerful This new and complete without an ESC. £70 delivered UK (Paypal Friends/Family) or £65 collected near Denham, South Bucks
