  1. I saw that @eddieseven posted one a few months ago, but he's not responding to his message box. I hope he's ok....
  2. Hi guys. I'm looking for a TRF414 to complete a collection, particularly looking for a kit still sealed. What's available?
  3. Thunder Tiger always carried a bit of a low end badge, even though they make parts for a lot of other companies. They own Associated now? I guess the reputation is holding strong, the associated kits now are a bit hit/miss.
  4. Join the queue. I'm planing to make a replica, but of the 404x, or the even harder to find 404.
  5. Hey everyone. I'm restoring an original TB Evo, and I need three wheel hexes. They're the splined type, so difficult to get alternatives.
  6. Sorry if Iv got you all excited, but it’s me who wants to buy them. I am looking for both top and bottom plates from the top force evolution kit, the carbon ones that have the ‘top force evolution’ detail printed onto the top plate. Preferably after new items, but perfect could also work. What have you got?
  7. +1 on any fwd small car, mk1/2 xr2, nova, rs turbo, clio, not fussy. Just not some half attempt like kamtec do. Their 1/10th scale golf and corrado look ok but the 1/12th scale bodies leave a lot to be desired.
  8. Apparently, it allows the shock mounts to move ever so slightly, independently from one another. I have always used the carbon F&R damper mounts which negate the setting.
  9. Photo isn't loading, but I think it's the one at the very front of the chassis holding the two halves together? It's a machine screw as it can be used to affect chassis flex. Initial setting is to tighten it fully, but you can back it off a quarter of a turn to add a touch of steering.
  10. Perhaps your pinion set screw is too long and is catching either on the spur or the gear case?
  11. Schumacher make narrow scale saloon wheels and tyres. They are 20mm wide. You could use the tyres they offer and just cut the inner lip away from your chosen 24/26mm rim?
  12. Last night, I tried the ff03 in anger. Theres a sport tuned motor fitted in the pic, and this was punchy enough to show the diff up as the weak link in this model. It's not a particularly friendly car to work on, but I managed to strip, clean and re glue the plates onto the outdrives in the 10-12 min gap between rounds. I'm considering getting the replacement gear cases that allow you to fit an xv01 diff, that should prove much more reliable. Soft roll bar fitted to the rear, stops the rear end suddenly unloading mid corner. And here you can clearly see the 'irace' lap counting transmitter as supplied by kamtec. They work really well, and are so much cheaper than the mylaps/amb system. The tyres are 28 sweeps, and worked perfectly even in the fresh temperature of the hall. Good fun.
  13. There's a 20t Saturn/HW1060 rule at this particular club too. We've been accused of cheating in the past, even when we've been using this specified kit, just driving tidy makes the cars appear so much faster. Half the fun is beating the modern cars with these old things v
