    Rather a poor excuse if you ask me. UK eBay sellers are too expensive in most cases. Might just fly to Germany and get a suitcase load of parts and make a mini break of it at the same time.

    [Threads merged] Just wondering why they have stopped shipping products to the UK? Did they ever give an explanation? Such a shame as their parts inventory was probably the best I’ve seen in Europe.

    The body mount hole didn’t want to line up. Funny the Oem Tamiya shell easily fits over the tbg perfectly. It’s on the small side.

    TRF 211XM - Ugly but great performance.

    Post some pictures once trimmed and fitted might look at this option also. Mine weighs 23g painted would be interested to see how much that shell weighs.

    Same here I prefer the 201 shell but that’s how things are going. Cab forward is ugly!

    Bodyshell painted. Keeping the colour simple.

    I’m looking at a 7.5 for this or maybe an 8.5. There is a good motor review by Nick Adam of Demon Power on Chinese Surpass motors. They are apparently top notch and sold for around £50 Shipped. The idler is a lightweight version from Tamiya.

    Need to find a good brushless motor and a new modern radio setup. I tested it out with a Tamiya 10.5 and Tamiya esc. Lot of potential for more performance.

    Haha probably I’m 41 so might be that. I’m still young in mind and fitter than I was as a teen

    Thanks I’ll check it out. Did you do a hex conversion on you car? Cannot seem to find Yokomo hex conversion kits anymore. I think RC10 ones need more hacking to fit?

    No to mention business rates but eBay sellers typically operate from home or a small unit so unlikely they have rates and you can get 100% relief. Just another way to get more money out of people usually. blBefore anyone mentions our import duties and taxes Eu countries also must pay. Again the question why is tamico and Seidel much much cheaper?
