  1. The 50mm they say are the right part don’t fit as well as the older style 55mm IMHO
  2. In the teaser you can see the sponsors. Search the sponsors and you find this. At first the thinking would be “TC = Touring Car” - but this is simply the next lineage of TA and TB - so a new chassis family. The B in TB doesn’t stand for belt either remember.
  3. Might of interest, mate of mine here in Aus is selling his immaculate 414 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/89215-tamiya-414/#
  4. Friend of mine selling his immaculate 414 https://ebay.us/1Dhyur
  5. These are an old model for HW now - so very good chance they are actually an unbranded version of the real thing.
  6. Nice work. Soft spot for frogs. Here the resto i did I did a little while back. 90% original parts as well
  7. I beg to differ on the comments about no value. I cleaned up a frog a little while back and fixed the few broken parts it had and sold it for around $300AU of memory serves me correct. Also, items such as the original Brat Rubber, Hump Battery and spare sticker sheet etc all netted some more good coin on top. Present it well, and sell somewhere like eBay - as opposed here where the vultures want you to pay them to take the items away pretty much - and you will get a tidy sum.
  8. Banzai would have been the best way. But they have stopped selling Tamiya. The euro and US tamiya distribution channels kicked up a fuss and they can't sell outside Japan anymore.
  9. Shorty is definitely the way to go.

    Good timing for this tonne top of the thread list. I have one of a mates 7 year old son. Gearbox and suspension problems, so I'm fixing it. - Getting oil filled shocks - 3rd/5th shock mod - Bearings all round - and a sports tuned. Fun cars. Always been great for kids.
  11. Probably another Tamiya HQ hissy fit. Same thing occurred about 12months ago Banzai used to be a flat 40% off Tamiya RRP, and some JDM only stores and some distributors complained as they were taking so many international customers. So they agreed to reduce to 25% - perhaps that is now too much as wel.
  12. To assist with your decision! This is the resto I did about a year ago or so. Re-re body with some vintage decals in place (original was black)
  13. Grr. Still can't change quantities at the checkout!
