  1. @bartman77sorry, I don't think I was clear iny original post. I don't have these and don't have interest in Kyosho cars of this era. I only pass on the availability of these two buggysin an effort to get a fair offer to the curator of the 1:1 car collection I visited. They the Gallops, are for sale. I have no idea what a fair offer would look like however. Curious to see any info that people can provide. Are they any good, what is the comparable Tamiya in this era?
  2. I typically don't like to see these kind of posts here but, as these cars are very slightly before my time I am unable to offer advice towards moving them on to someone who needs/will appreciate them. Admins, please forgive if this is against the rules but in inspecting a dozen vintage Mercedes W116's today, the topic of old school RC cars came up. So, mostly as a solid to the gentleman I met and to our community, I thought it best to share with any of you here who may have interest. I don't want to be explicitly involved but at the same time I will pass on info and or interest. Before you ask... Re: other cars, I don't know of any others at this time.
  3. I had the original Mini, m01 back in 1996 maybe, that cars long gone though I do have one new in the attic. If I can get to it without to much effort I will try and compare the bodies between it and one of my later minis. I think I have a few others up there. As long as they aren't still shrink wrapped I would be happy to poke around and report back.
  4. The compound of MB tires are softer than the BF chevron's as well. Shore 55 vs Shore 62 if I recall corretly from when I tested them.
  5. @Clodbusterfan And Two stock silver cans on 3s. Quick enough and little cost. Runs on a 3s 5000mah lipo. Haven't broke anything yet.
  6. Def needs a wizard mural on the side with a portal window. I thought the same thing for the Kyosho Madvan body, IIRC it was Clod sized though.
  7. My truck is on my channel, I have xmaxx center driveshafts, 2 silver sport tunes and 3s on 860 esc. A year ago I had talks with MIP about custom length driveshaftsi have 2 sets, haven't installed them though as the Traxxas units are fairly bulletproof cheap and easy to make fit. Curious how the Raptor body fits RB.
  8. Looks good, the Agrios has to be one of my favorite runners. I'm curious to see what your mods look like though. I also design, machine and print my own parts so it's refreshing to see a well done truck.
  9. Quick easy weight may be to fill with sand and duct tape to seal...thinking out loud
  10. I use Windex same theory though. A bit of hairdryer heat for compound curves helps as well. I did a vid on my Blackfoot body if it helps. See my sig line for channel. blockquote widget
  11. Welcome to the world of Tamiya and kit builds. You should find the instructions to be well written and the car to be a decent performer out of the box. Its a rewarding feeling to build a new kit, which probably has something to do with why I have so many concurrent projects going on. Manuals are usually available for download on tamiyausa.com
  12. How does the DF03 drive, I keep putting off the Lancer Evo IV when they pop up?
  13. Long Ago Mid 90s in order RC10L RC12L MRC MT10M JRX-pro SE XX-T HPI RS4 M01 Mini Cooper -------long break filled with planes ------- Last few years mostly on order Cc-01Unimog Monster Beetle M05 Renault Alpine MF01x G320 CR-01 Bronco, turned into Blackfoot Montero Wheelie Kyosho Optima Frog Kyosho Scorpion Super Clodbuster TXT-2 Dynahead 934 40th Jager livery ----This week---- Reinert TT-01 race semi Ferrari 312T3 ---Next week--- I have a box full of Hornets that I really should turn into a trouble free runner.
  14. Your right, I read that wrong. I was thinking with regards to lexan.
