  1. 47466 1/10 RC XB Super Storm Dragon Source: https://tamiyablog.com/2021/03/tamiya-47466-1-10-rc-xb-super-storm-dragon/
  2. Didn‘t find a better a place... admins please move if necessary. German label „Racers Paradise“ released a 1/10 Opel Ascona bodyset (officially licensed by Opel), fitting any common 1/10 rc chassis like TT-01 and TT-02. And just like the new Tamiya Audi Quattro body, it comes with regular-sized wheel arches, it is not a remake of the 1980s Tamiya body. Qualitx is pretty good, they released some other Opel bodies during the last years (e.g. Opel Commodore and Opel Manta MK2). So, it is possible to build a period-correct counterpart rally car alongside to the famous Audi Quattro. In 1982, Walter Röhrl was the last one who managed to win the World Cup Driver‘s championship using a rear-wheel-only-driven car, so the Ascona has it‘s place in Rallye history. (In 1983, Lancia was able to win the constructor‘s title with the Lancia 037, but the driver‘s title was won by 4-wheel-driven car, which has not changed until today). Opel Ascona Bodyset
  3. Most likely, my 1/10 scale Porsche 936. Along with two unused spare bodies.

  5. 57919 XB Toyota Supra (white version) https://www.ebay.com/itm/184355542183 (not to be mixed up with 57916, which is the red XB version)
  6. I made that experience with analog servos, regardless if they were old or new, connected to my Futaba 2.4GHz receivers: During powering up, the servos perform a kind of initializing run, i.e. they rotate to the maximum and then back to neutral position. This is not good if the steering mechanics requires a rotating limitation of less than 100%... I changed to digital servos and the problem was gone, these servos don‘t do anything during/after powering up.
  7. Before today, I've never heard of that brand "Radiopost". But I cannot find any new items - looks as if they are out of business?
  8. Guide plates, could be a job for someone who owns a 3D-printer?
  9. There are only very few "real" stick radios out there. "Real" means that the sticks don't move in all directions. You can choose between: Absima SR2S (recommended) Carson Reflex Stick 3.x Futaba T2HR (recommended) These are rather basic, have no memory to support more than 1 model, and they don't feature individual left/right EPA. Then there is a big gap, as there is no mid-priced stick radio available from any manufacturer. Next option is the Fuatba T4GRS, which supports up to 40 cars and hast lots of features, including individual left/right EPA.
  10. As mentioned before, Flysky / Turnigy. Absima also makes some nice entry-level radios.
  11. As I mentioned before, my vintage cars have vintage electronics (27 MHz AM) that still works (in the house), but not outside due to too much interference. Especially the steering servo was a problem, because it has an unique design which is not compatible to standard servo units. So I asked someone to construct a 3D-printed adapter that fits to the original radio plate and takes a modern digital servo (Graupner DES 587 BB MG). + an electronic speed controller with old-school-design (Graupner Speed Profi 40R) + a basic-style 2-stick 2.4 GHz radio (Absima SR2S) and receiver (Absima R3FS). If necessary, all the original stuff can be installed again without problems, there was no need to modify anything of the original parts, no new holes, nothing.
  12. Do you have a name or a link? I cannot find any modern 27 MHz stick radio as a regular new item.
  13. Also still hoping for Ford F150 Ranger XLT Toyota 4x4 Hilux Pick-Up 4x4 Blazing Blazer and also hoping for Opel Ascona, but with wheel arches corrected in the same way as happened with the Audi Quattro Ford Escort RS Cosworth Ford Mondeo
  14. It may depend on the devices, but my 1981 27 MHz radio/receiver works fine with modern digital servos and ESCs (even with BEC) both brushed and brushless. All I needed was to buy some adapter cables, because the receiver‘s plug system was different than today‘s standard.
