  1. That's really odd, and seems pretty strange. I'd be wry as well. I've bought plenty from them, always been A+, hopefully my dampers turn up safe and sound!
  2. God dam. That’s only like $66AUD and shipping is like $9. THAT’S the best deal you’re likely to ever see on them again. Just got another set. Only 14 left now. Funny as as I was emailing RC Mart about them as recently as last week and they didn’t say they were getting them in at all. Well the the prediction was right. If one suppliers getting them in Europe, lots will be.
  3. Ok team, just got the email from RC Jaz and they're back in stock! I bought a pair for $95AUD so a better deal as I thought it may be. I assume get in quick... However I al also still sure that others will get them back in as there is NO WAY in badword that only one or two suppliers will just get them. It will be limited stock regardless. https://www.rcjaz.com/tamiya-47358-top-force-2017-hicap-dampers-for-47350-p-90084118.html
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
