  1. Thanks, the front tyres are JConcepts Step Spike Green Compound and the colour of the box art body is Tamiya PS-19 Camel yellow.
  2. Yes, BRCA membership. Perhaps I always take a few cars. I try and limit myself to four, one non-Tamiya, two Tamiya buggies and something daft like a WW2 or Clod. It always a fun meeting and well worth the effort. I hope to see you there soon.
  3. I think I’ve just about finished building chassis number 300. This is the box art display body ….and this is the track suit and trainers look for Tamiya Junkies meetings. I just need some decent wheel nuts for the rears and I’m waiting for a new wing wire and diamond mounts to arrive from L&L.
  4. I’ve just opened mine to find I have number 300. It’s of absolutely no importance but somehow having a low and round number has made me happy. 🤪
  5. I always like to take a photo of my new builds at that same spot, usually just before crashing into something solid 🤣
  6. My pre-order is in. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for the next few weeks.
  7. Yesterday was a very good day when a pal at work gave me a Thunder Tiger Eb4 to restore. I know next to nothing about Nitro cars and just as little about where to source Thunder Tiger parts but it should make an interesting project. Today however was even better when the postman brought me this…… After gazing at the egress on the front cover of the 91 guidebook, it’s great to finally get my hands on one.
  8. It was a really good turn out yesterday. The fast boys were outside on the Astro so I stayed inside all day. I was so busy running cars that I hardly took any photos, and then mostly of my own cars.
  9. I have a 1937 MG TA which does a good job of stopping me spending too much money on RC toys.
  10. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/associated-rc10cc-classic-clear-edition-kit-1355127 £319. Thats quite a tempting price.
  11. I have the Hobbywing XR10 G3 ESC and Justock G2.1 13.5T Motor in mine. I’ve played with the ESC settings using the programme card but can’t get it to give me forward-brake-reverse, only forward-reverse. I’m obviously missing something but it’s a bit disappointing. It’s fast enough though.
  12. Okay. I bought this BBX almost buy mistake when my Mrs unwittingly booked a hotel for a weekend away too close to a large model shop😂 Its mostly kit standard apart from the slipper clutch an 13.5T brushless set. The colour is PS clear red followed by lame sparkle backed with bright silver and finally black. The wheels are from the Tamiya CC01 Defender kit And I 3d printed a vanity panel across the back to hide my dodgy soldering. All in, a lovely kit to build.
  13. This evening I fitted the body to my BBX. Now I’m going to sit back and look at it for a while.
  14. The next Tamiya Junkies meet is on Saturday 14th October 2023 at the Robin Hood Raceway.
  15. Box art just like my first Tamiya build when I was a kid. I’ve also picked up a couple of decal sheets from MCI to replace the missing sponsors.
  16. Sorry for the short notice but the next Tamiya Junkies meeting is Sunday 20th August at Robin Hood Raceway.
  17. After months of waiting, I finally have the body I want for my XV-02.
