  1. So decided to see how fast the TT02R was. Set up is a 1060 ESC, Superstock RZ motor (23t) and a 2S Lipo. Im running a 22t Pinion. Im also on Rally Blocks which arent ideal. Because Lancia Delta Obviously I done the speed run on a smooth car park, not the above gravel...... I also removed the wing because it broke after one roll over. End result was 25mph I then spent the next 25 mins hooning about in the gravel and even getting some air time. Motor wasnt too hot after this so Im going to gear up quite a lot (27t) and go again. Then it may be brushless time 🙂 Really enjoyed that peaceful little hoon. Even if I forgot it was half term and the kids were off.....

  3. Controversially, I think box art only matters on the Touring Cars. I get so excited to see a boxed Cosworth on eBay only to flick through the photos and see someone has painted it the wrong colour. I saw a yellow Integralle WRC Martini the other day, and Ive lost count of how many people have gone non box art on various R34 JGTC’s from the 90s. Anything off road? Go your own way IMO
  4. My first proper array was in 1999 in a TL01. That eventually had a Novak ESC and a Trinity modified motor. Also I remeber having a Trinity P2K Stock motor, wonder what year they came out!
  5. Is it there any where I can read about Tamiya’s financials or are they private?
  6. Guessing this would fit the bill, and gets me a period Radio? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304959794236?hash=item4701052c3c%3Ag%3A~ucAAOSw2MFkdmDZ&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAAwL%2FYzS7VfKQ02vbGSzDBmDUcp6w1lPwzCW%2Fm41C0Qi1HkQH6n4GMWj1u%2B4Otf9Ff9d0IQp4wo%2FQ8dW%2FVdZ%2FFc3UAjFNRzPy3aoeCR2NxSnZTm596xUnb61VwF%2FPMxghZRH3LclcVpuPr4ex%2BFybZTrnH8AlbpSVf7I%2B7HhALrPkVRzl2YrY8P9ecfDWm*******2FJfSO%2BomiT%2FIzE7KKiFj0c0BGTGCwcUjQpeMIXUxOrIl1%2BjGxtvgxkiO%2Bg5t4O%2Fygw%3D%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR9DXmI6PYg&LH_BIN=1 with this motor https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/256095287589?hash=item3ba077f925:g:bCgAAOSwwetkd9vU&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAA4CV4tqHcwbAN2PGa%2BlZvEY0%2BJz2GE%2FJWImL6iM6gdm96RBebOFWdC9R6lafSlX4N3bctnetSie32txNV%2FmxYSkgb%2FlGvqjFBeCTJFwVGzUxw5rjvppSjWiwuod001sPSphgI0usKiS0mOtqn%2FPqKCZNDMZanfd%2B84j4wYqG47fSctAFNk1IQdHE0v4hVQGl1yaKDm9Qg45q6kjRfdCLFJ1nHC5phr4MpxCLJ78%2FjvfMCqNmvDU71yVNfy8Km4I3Z7lpIwX3GH3tKXlvw87cbb08508s8Md8QGb7aSqEDS301|tkp%3ABk9SR9DaqI6PYg
  7. Hi, Ive managed to get a very very very good condition Tamiya Escort Cosworth Repsol #58176. This is on a TA02 chassis. This means a lot to me, as although I didnt have one as a kid, my friend did, and I was so jealous of this. Now I have one. It currently has an Acoms radio, an MSC and silver can motor. It works fine….. However….. So my question is, lets suppose I was lucky enough to own this on its release in 1996. Id have been 8 years old, but lets suppose I had some very rich grand parents. How would I upgrade this TA02? What period ESC/Motor would I go for? Thanks!
  8. Appreciate thats how it started, but is that true today? Genuine question
  9. This looks very familar? Devon?
  10. They need to make a brushless RTR with 50mph+ plastered all over the box. Not saying they should do that, or what I want them too, but thats what they would need to do!
  11. Youre hurtint my wallet. I was impressed with my TT02R rally…… now I want an XV02….
  12. Not disagreeing but Id imagine Lego’s finances are in a different realm to Tamiya?
  13. @TwistedxSlayer If this is the part you require PM me your address and Ill get it posted to you
  14. Ill check when Im back home Thursday. I just removed one to fit a Jaz Rider alloy one, so Im hoping I kept it. Ill let you know!
