    Tamiya Mini 4WD dimensions

    Not 100% sure but I think they wild Willy and wheeler versions are shorter w/b. I know you didn't ask about them but thought it might help.
  2. What?!, Tamiya scrimping on parts?............Never!!! Oh, unless it saves them money.......then they will. :-)

    Monster Beetle re-release #58618

    Two runners, in case one needs fixing. :-)

    Screech! Falcon!

    I use Dettol to strip paint off, it doesn't appear to affect the plastic as brake fluid does. http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=73854&hl=dettol#entry550412
  5. I've posted stacks of them. I just write 'toy car part' in the description. Never had a problem in 25 years. I've got a few NOS hump batteries.
  6. Yeah, I don't know why they do that, it's not like it's anything special. Even though most of my cars are shelf queens, they all get proper bearings and super lube in gearbox.

    I wish tamiya would...

    make more cars with hard bodys, the P/C bodies should just be for the budget line. Oh, and yeah, drop the weirdo bear, it's seriously a bit strange.
  8. where did you get them, I've only found rims
  9. You could just use a real can. (fit extra batteries in it)
  10. Tamiya should do a Wild Willy style kit as well.
  11. 57, two days ago, although I must be going backwards because the older I get the more toys I buy.
  12. Oh well then in that case I think you're not allowing it to be used as it should, set it free to cruise the cycleways............sell it to me.

    re re's a rtr's

    HE won't be doing anything, it'll probably be up to me. I just didn't want to have to paint bits etc. 57785 is the kit number

    re re's a rtr's

    Does anyone know if the RTR Hotshot is the rere kit built up? I've never bought a RTR Tamiya car and a mate wants a Hotshot, I suggested a RTR one as he can't /doesn't want to, build it but wants to put hot up bits on it. On that subject does the Hotshot have much in the way of hot up stuff? I suggested a brushless combo, bearings and shocks. He's not keen on lipo's.
  15. yes......... truth is I don't remember, I've had them for years, just thought l'd use them.
