  1. I couldn’t agree more. I was only looking this morning and rolling my eyes at the inflated prices for average NIBs with ‘Vintage’ or ‘Rare’ labels seemingly doubling the price I’d be prepared to pay for them. I feel like messaging them and saying, ‘You’re having a laugh, mate!’ I rather assume if they started bidding at 99p with no reserve the market might agree.
  2. Good to hear your feedback. I have it but yet to start the build. Stickers get on my nerves so not looking forward to that!
  3. Hi. I dropped you a pm. Did you get it? Cheers.
  4. It’s here! Also grabbed a set of Carson LEDs and a truck motor.
  5. I’m at the exact same stage of thinking. I was tempted by the orange R470 on Tamico at €229. You can pick up 8 channel radio gear for about £60 at Modelsport and bearings from RCBearings for £15 so it’ll be about £300 all in. In fact I’ve already ordered those two items, so now I have to buy the truck! 😂
  6. A nice haul from Tamico before we leave the EU and get hammered for import duties!
  7. Thanks Tamico! Sealed boxes too. Got to the UK in 2 days and with the weaker Euro £220 the pair delivered. Already got one GT2, but this one's a NIB keeper! My first Tamico purchase, but not my last, I suspect. Poor bank account will get a hammering.
  8. Good idea. It's frustrating. They do make one that goes down to 23T brushed, TBLE-03, but it's £40. You can get the Hobbywing 1060 for £15 on fleabay, which is well-rated on this site and goes down to 12T. That's what I'm buying instead.
  9. Great thread to follow. May well visit Tamico this pm...
  10. Cheers! None of the new ones are built; the Fiat, Mad Bull, Celica and Tyrrell are. There's something about NIB kits that just stops me from getting started! I try and stick to a max of £100 per kit so it doesn't get too out of hand. I've bought from other members and they are great to buy from. Fair prices and a shared love! Make sure you have a big shed or loft! There's so much knowledge on the site too. I doubt there's a question you could ask that hasn't been answered already somewhere! Most importantly, have fun!
