  1. Just remember, if Tony got 'em, everyone will get 'em... Also checked the price he was asking, converted it was $114.81AUD - Absolute madness. I turned down a set for $100 on ebay as I was so offended. Will see if the other usual suspects get them in...
  2. I just knew it! So glad I didn’t spend crazy money ($100+ USD) on a set on eBay. Just had a feeling they would do them again.
  3. My God, that is a thing of beauty! Thanks for sharing. I'm pretty sure that I am going to paint mine white as well, the yellow never pleased me and my OG shell was fluro orange with other bits in it.
  4. Yes I know it is, clearly a typo hence why my #2 point said that "The Turbo Optima Mid is either end of this year or early next!!!!" Amended.
  5. Never be sorry, this is Tamiya Club, builds take years and other priorities take over, but the threads always live on. I will be updating this again when I've done more on the build so no stress! Post some pics! Would love to see it! I also noticed that FINALLY Kyosho announced that they are releasing the Turbo Optima, albeit one year late at their own omission due to the issues they had last year. But none the less amazing news as that means: #1 - Kyosho is alive and kicking #2 - The Turbo Optima Mid is either end of this year or early next!!!! Sadly they're not being completely period correct and using different shocks but WHATEVER!!!! http://vintage.dirt-burners.com/2019/01/30/kyosho-turbo-optima-2019-first-details/

    No more Kyosho?

    The new MP-10 would suggest they’re going nowhere. Granted you could have been developing a new buggy and be so far down the track you had to release it, but generally, if you’re going into receivership then 3rd parties come in, appoint interim CEO, halt all operations and start to sell assets off and manage debt. Lets hope they’re fine and going nowhere. The world doesn’t need less wonderful model companies. Especially ones as good as Kyosho.
  7. The Kyosho re-re's are incredible. The Javelin I got blew my mind. I now run it whenever I'm bashing with a 13.5t and 2s lipo. About to put an 8.5t in here as well! Quality is second to none.
  8. Nooooooooooo. To be honest I am concerned about any of these services doing a similar thing. Unsure any are safe in the long term. I haven’t looked into Google, probably should as most of my stuff is on there and prices are reasonable.
  9. Yeah was very pleased to see that they have let the images back again. When Photobucket did that, it literally ruined thousands, nay millions of forums posts globally. I’ll dettianly never trust them again and have since moved to Flickr. So glad we can now see all old images in threads. Would have been a real loss to loose all that knowledge and work!
  10. Well, there's no build thread for this baby so why not throw some candy in here regardless? One day I'll get better at painting figures, I'm getting marginally better but it's still such a long way to the top.
  11. This place I think has multiple physical stores in Japan and seems to have a lot of stock: http://www.super-rc.co.jp/rc/index.html
  12. Agree, when I got the TRX-4 Bronco I was blown away. Literally, straight out of the box it's so capable it's not funny. So well built and incredibly high quality. I have to admit though, after running it for ages, I wanted to build a true scaler that didn't handle so well lol

    @Wooders28 You're a brave man doing that on asphalt! I did exactly the same thing with my Clod to test speed once and was so worried it would bite and smash! I also completely agree, I run 3S in my Clod with stock silver cans and it FLIES - well flies for a Clod. I really feel it's the perfect combination. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/88205-clodbuster-upgrades/&do=findComment&comment=731371
  14. Futaba are still considered one of the best in the business, but as @mahjik said, they're as expensive as they always were. I have had a few now and ended up finding a special on the 4PLV which is awesome and reasonable. As for batteries and chargers, I tend to get all that stuff from HobbyKing as they have the best prices. Start with a 2S LiPo and maybe something like the iMax B6-AC - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/imax-b6-ac-v2-charger-discharger-1-6-cells-genuine-au-plug.html Battery wise the Turnigy ones are great and represent amazing value. Anything from 3000mAh up is great - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/batteries-chargers/batteries/lipo.html?config=52&brand=2033&wrh=6&capacity=2983-5200
  15. Thanks @djmcnz! Question, I can't find part #52136 that you quoted to upgrade the ball diffs. What part is this? Any recommendations on rear universal CV's?
