  1. I'll pass on this one, nice looking buggy though, wish the original Dog fighter was re-re'd
  2. Just a heads up to anyone who missed out the first time around since NIB 2009, a more affordable price than what these are currently selling for online hopefully. I may buy another one πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  3. I think I need one too but no, can't get one πŸ™‚ I already have a Boomerang.
  4. No misunderstanding mate all good πŸ™‚ just me having a whine about no hotshot ll re-re haha
  5. Yes true. I was only explaining the tamiya rc model time line is all. Genuine HS2 before SS.
  6. Nice! I use to do hop-ups modifying vintage rc, but if something broke, it wasn't easy and or costly to replace. Will be watching πŸ‘
  7. So from the Tamiya Hotshot II blockhead, now we get the Super Sabre on the similar original Hotshot II type chassis? Is the blockhead not exceeding tamiya's expectations? Or am I over thinking?
  8. Will pass on this one! Too expensive due to current Australian 65 cents currency to the $1USD
  9. Great news, nice as, will pass on this one! Will be excellent to see the builds on here and live footage on youtube after release. I already own most of the re-re kyosho vintage off road series...and my wallet thanks me for staying away from the race bred vintage re-re rc kits....turbo optima, turbo scorpion, optima mid πŸ˜… unless kyosho re-re'd their pipe frame 1/8th scale buggies again.....it's shut up and take my MONEY!!! πŸ«΄πŸ’°πŸ˜‚
  10. Thanks again with your links with helpful info mate. I've decided to sell my mf-01x Escort kit and parts, then buy a rally xv01 chassis...and buy the Escort coupe body instead to go withπŸ‘ I must have 1 rally Escort rally rc car πŸ™‚ Escort mk6...nice πŸ‘Yes in my teenage yrs, I owned a Ford Escort sedan 2.0 souped up, my 1st car after i got my drivers licence, it was a beast to drive, lots of fun!! It wasn't an Escort RS2000 (pictured below) but mine use to go hard on the street. Good days
  11. Thanks alot for all your info mate...and for sharing the thread, interesting read up. This is my 1st ever rc rally car kit. I owned a Ford Escort as my 1st car bitd. So it's sentimental to keep this kit. I will build it stock standard out of the box with the lower setting, hopefully the fast trax tires will be the same size as on this Escort, as these are small wheels. Much appreciated info again thanks, saved me getting frustrated...using some hopups for no reason, will sell them, get some cash back πŸ‘
  12. Did you shim up the driveline to limit any play with the shafts? Have you tried the Tamiya Double Cardan Joint shaft #42300? Not cheap though...
  13. You have a link for these TC sized rally tires thanks?
