  1. Nice! I am in the middle of restoring a Graphite, I have mounted a Stealth transmission in it, and trying to find some worlds axles and hubs, 30 degree front caster blocks. I am mounting V2 TE shocks on it as well. The was a little damaged so put a 3D printed bumper on the front. I'll be adding a brass weight up front the same as my Worlds.
  2. When will Tamiya release another Rere batch of Dyna Storms? Seeing that if they were to release another batch and with the interest of Re-released vehicles being popular....or are we going to have to wait a few more years just to draw it out? Just my 2 cents..
  3. Best to stick to brushed standard 540 cans for a lot of older tamiya models for the lower end of the spectrum. Their transmissions aren't designed for newer powerful BL motors. Unless you are running a TTC or TE Stealth or similar vintage trannys. My King cab and madcap with the ball diff transmissions wouldn't last long with a brushless set up. However my OG Super Astute runs a 10.5 brushless with no problems, same with my Rc10 with stealth transmissions. But I would not run my 6 gear Rc10 with a brushless motor unless it was maybe 21 turn, but never tried as the 17 turn Brushed motor is fine. I am yet to run my Egress or Avante 2001 but I'm sure that will be fine with a BL setup as long as its not to crazy. I have a 5.5 turn BL motor doing nothing but I ain't using that on any vintage cars unless I want to destroy them.
  4. I might give sticks a go, something different as I have always used a wheel transmitter.
  5. Hi folks, "My kids" are buying/bought me a Mountain Rider for xmas and was after some recommendations for a 6 or 4 channel radio set. I was looking at a Flysky FS-i6X 2.4GHz 6CH/10CH AFHDS as it was cheap but what do others recommend? I can't wait to build this as I always wanted one as a kid in 1986/7!!!! LOL! Cheers Leon
  6. I'm planning on coming for a watch as I'm in the South West. Its a great circuit to watch at, I've only driven on the off road track there. Wish I still had my old TL01 chassis...
  7. Hi all, I am after some White rear wheels (no tyres) for the Nissan King cab, either to buy or swap for the front wheels. Have 2 sets of fronts, no rears Thanks in advance
  8. The Super Astute has been re-released so parts are becoming available for these cars. Keep an eye out on ebay and Tamico(I know they have arms and other bits). Also there is 3D printed parts on Shapeways, like the battery clamps.
  9. Okay no worries, come back to me. I have a spare shell, wing and shocks and some other bits from my madcap restoration.
  10. Did you get this sorted? I have some madcap shocks somewhere. PM me if your interested?
  11. Don't forget the A&L Lethal weapon transmission as well.
  12. Replace the plastic support posts in the transmission. The Egress and Astutes have alloy ones. Also I replaced the coat hanger wire with ball and cup and joins in the steering arms.
  13. Hi DaveB, I think they will fit I bought some alloy 3racing shocks for a DT02 which are the same fit as the DT03 and these fit like a glove on my restored Madcap. Cheers Leon
