  1. Thanks for the replies I’ve been looking for the correct battery holder on eBay for ages but I haven’t found one so I’ll use this one thanks again
  2. Hi everyone I hope someone on here can help I’ve got an old type futaba radio, the ones with the male pins but I haven’t got a battery box so I have got a battery box with a modern 2 pin plug, my question is are the red and black wires on the old radio switch red for + and black for - and white for the signal if somebody can give me this info I can solder the correct plug in place and get my hilux 3speed churning up my lawn thanks Brian
  3. Mike that sounds amazing I’m sure I could swap out the larger leaf (I fx 1:1 cars for a living so quite handy lol) if you could let me know how much you want for 1 and how much for the postage that would be great brian
  4. Hi Mike thanks for the quick response I hadn’t realised there were 2 types, I’ve compared the pictures to my springs and it has the longer leafs like the ones at the bottom of the picture you posted thanks Brian
  5. Hi everyone I’m trying to source a Toyota hilux/ blazing blazer leaf spring as one of mine has snapped I also need the metal servo saver that attaches to the speed controller for the Toyota hilux 3 speed. Hopefully somebody on here has these spares they can part with thank you for looking
  6. I thought I recognised it I’ve got a madcap and saint dragon on the shelf but they were built from full kits so I couldn’t check for you, but on the plus side it reminded me of my childhood madcap!!
  7. I think I’ve seen this bag in the saint dragon body set. I think you are close with the bracket as it’s an adapter to fit the saint dragon body to various buggies, I bought the saint dragon body set for my madcap in the early 90’s and used that bracket as a front strut brace across the front shock top screws i haven’t checked the manual though so I might be wrong
  8. Hi, just a thought are the plastic spruces the same as the ones included in the mfc03 kit. If they are I have about 5 of them surplus from my euro truck builds if they are any good to you
  9. I know people have had this problem with Lego in the past, they just disassemble the model then tie the parts in an old pillow case and then put it in the washing machine on a cool wash. This should work for rc car plastics too but I’ve never tried it myself
  10. Nice job buddy before you know it you will have a full fleet of trucks!!
  11. I always use full ball bearings in my trucks but I don’t change the metal bushings BD5 in the gearbox but I know some people have with out issue i also use ball bearings in the steering too
  12. Hi yes it should fit all the tractor truck chassis I’ve fitted a few of these to some of my trucks but I don’t have the actros 1851 as far as I know the chassis rails have the same mounting holes but in different places to suit 4 or 6 wheel bases/lengths
  13. Delivery from modelsport today,excellent service as usual! volvo tow truck (this must be the biggest kit box I’ve seen) mfc03 carson 14 channel radio paint and driver figure all ready here so just the actuator unit To arrive let the fun begin 😂😂
  14. Soapy water and a nail brush will bring the rear tyres up a treat, it’s good to see the front and rear wheels reunited
  15. I finally remembered to dig out the Lancia front wheels at work i know how hard they are to get hold of but if they are any good to you I would sell them to help a Tamiya club brother out! They don’t owe me a lot and I’m not out to make a profit. i think if you can get the paint off and they leave them in peroxide in the sun (if it comes back out) they should come out good the edges are a bit rashed but should sand out ok
