  1. Other than the rumour of the Novafox being rere’d again in September, do we know what other releases Tamiya had scheduled or rumoured for 2020? I’m don’t know what restrictions were in place where Tamiya kits are manufactured, but it’s safe to assume production will have been halted for a good while With lockdown measures being ease in certain countries, I’m wondering if we'll start to see some more information coming through on rere kits?
  2. I’m not sure - I measured the driveshafts on my vintage fox and they are showing 4.8mm using a digital caliper. With the 5mm aluminium hubs fitted and the wheel nuts are fully tightened, there’s a tiny bit of play, it’s minuscule, but it is there. To be honest I think could be wear on the original shafts, but even the 0.2mm difference gave a tiny bit of movement. If the Novafox uses thinner diameter shafts, I wouldn’t advise the 5mm hubs, going off the above
  3. Thanks - just got home and mine have just arrived
  4. I’ve ordered those hubs for my vintage Fox restoration, as the plastic hubs were worn where the pin holds them in place. The ones I ordered were 5.0mm ones as when I measured the drive shaft it was 4.8mm. Did yours fit ok?
  5. Its not confirmed yet, and the rumour says its only for the Japanese Domestic market - I'm hoping we all get a chance but i'd wait before taking it as a dead cert Fingers crossed though!
  6. It says that they are only for the Japanese Market, and it may not happend but fingers crossed! I missed all 3 of those re-re's so I hope it happens
  7. As per the title, I'm looking for NIB/unbuilt original Clodbuster i know it's a long shot but if anyone has one in the collection they'd be willing to part with, let me know Thanks
  8. Welcome! Lookig forward to seeing your build
  9. The ultimate re-re for me would be the Hilux Monster Racer and King Cab Those two are brilliant trucks
  10. I've just restored one of these - should I get a re-re to go with its vintage brother?
  11. Its not just you I've sold goodies from my other hobbies to fund my Tamiya nostalgia trip
