  1. I do have a front bumper but it is used and has scuffing marks on the bottom side. PM me if interested.
  2. Unfortunately i don't. It was an original Sand Rover with a 540 installed and i sold it on a 2nd hand market. I still regret it until this day. I do still have the 2nd one, a Hornet which i actually found back on the attic at my parents year ago and got me back into the Tamiya world. It did have quite a number of hopups and i did equip it with a rere body as the original one was toast and at the time i used the rere decals but i do have an original decal sheet which is waiting to be applied (and so are the lights). It has got a Technipower installed and is RTR but living a life on the shelve.
  3. I have this for several years now and did quite some work on it but i don't have the time anymore for any projects so i am putting it up for sale. If you are in need for a new project or spare parts for a Kyosho GP Ultima ST (or partially RB) super sports, this may be what you are looking for. The chassis is not complete. It is missing the slipper clutch parts and spur gear. Front and rear have been completely rebuilt according the manual. Parts have been cleaned and some show signs of usage, but no cracks or breaking except for the receiver housing where the top lip from the cover is missing. Gearbox completely rebuilt with ball bearings and gears are like new. The chassis plate show some slight bending in the front and scratches on the bottom. Some spares included. Considering the condition, i am looking for 50 Euro but will consider offers. Also willing to ship worldwide at buyers costs. Paypal preferred.
  4. Mine have all turned into shelfers over time for various reasons: 1. I spent so much time and effort restoring it that i don't want to risk damaging it 2. Parts are hard or impossible to come by if i damage something 3. Time constraints Fact is that apart from my TA04S converted into TRF, almost all of my cars are Tamiya vintage originals and the only one i run occasionally is a Protech XT4 nitro. Also vintage but i have no emotional attachment with it, bought it for cheap just out of curiosity, it is fun to drive and very very fast and last but not least, it is quite robust, actually better quality than your average Tamiya and if i crash it eventually it is good for the bin as parts are impossible to come by.
  5. i like this build a lot. It's like a smal adventure. Keep it going!
  6. I am looking for some parts to bring a Kyosho GP Ultima RB back to live that i recently acquired. Specifically, i am looking for the spur gear and clutch parts, one of the steering rods, and possibly wheels and body. If anybody has them, let's talk. An entire donor chassis would be considered too.

  7. I actually have a brand-new set for sale here
  8. I can really relate to the posts above around prices. I have always been on the hunt for "near-death" vintage model to safe and bring it back to its original grace loving the chase at times more than the catch. I bought Avante's for 50 Euro and several of the other classics too. Nowadays however, everything is way overpriced. Everyone who bumps into an old Tamiya RC on the attic, one of the classics or not, instantly think they have struck gold and is expecting gold. It made the hunt a lot less fun for me and has nothing to do with how much i can afford to pay for it, but how much a realistic price is to me. In any case, there are a couple of models that i definitely want to get at some point in time, an SRB for sure and a WW or WW2. I am still convinced that sooner or later i will bump into an affordable one...
  9. Brand new never used. 25 Euro + shipping cost.
  10. Hey Wez, still looking for these? I have a brandnew set of white lightweight wheels. Interested?
  11. No problem. I will make you some sharp closeup pics tomorrow and post them in this thread. I also have the You-G front and rear shocks on mine. There was also a You-G blue alu sidebar hop-up to complete the set but i haven't across that one for sale but if i do, i would buy it instantly. I bought this car new middle of the 80's. It was my 2nd Tamiya, my first one was a Sand Rover. Never knew where that went.
  12. I like it a lot. It is a great tribute to the Dynastorm. One of my all time favourites. Mine is still fully original except for the front arms which are the Nimrod carbon reinforced versions. It used to have the Nimrod lower deck but i went back to the original.
  13. Blasphemy! Who would ever want to convert an original Avante 2001 into an Egress?
  14. The really good finds are the accidental ones, such as the Novak that came with this Dynastorm. The car was an excellent find on its own but it came with a couple of very nice extras such as this ESC. Fully functional and in great shape. On this pic, the Dyna is fully restored. This was definitely not the shape it was in when i bought it
  15. i still have some Dynastorm slipper clutch parts in my stash. Let me know what you are still missing and i will have a look.
