  1. Cleaned up my vintage FOX and retired it on the shelf
  2. Found another example: painting stripes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fXfazftU8A
  3. Look at this example but with the Hornet body you'd have to work inside out: https://youtu.be/1LIM5s_L0kE
  4. Thank God fornthe postman. I ruined my Fox and have no time to restore it or start on the Novafox kit whichbis lying arround for a year. What am I going to run with my kids while staying at my parents? Time to get that Hornethopper running again. Needed some parts though.
  5. Curious how this works out. I'm running a Fox with vintage Futaba servo's and radio. The commands get flakey from time to time but a good maintenance of the MSC and fully charged radiobatteries seem to help. Are you running vintage servo's with a modern ESC en radio? Not thet this should be a problem (runs fine in my sons Hornet).
  6. I bought a 2n hand Hornet without motor. Could anyone tell me what the difference is between a Tamiya 540 motor #7435044 and Tamiya RC 540-J Motor (Johnson) #53689? tnx!
  7. In those Fox orignal days we brushpainted our cars so I can't remember any masks in the box
  8. Applying masking tape on a Hornet body in preparation of a camouflage scheme
  9. Hi saju_nyc When you turn the other rear wheel, is there te same slack? Did you check the bevel gears?
  10. Or race your vintage car with love and precaution. treat them like these rare oldtimer cars and planes.
  11. Trying to brush racing stripes on my son's Hornet.
  12. Took my two boys to the local BMX track and later on to the skatepark and had great fun. My Fox beats the Hornet by miles but when a group of kids came up the oohs and aahs were for the 'orange(duh?)' racing car.
  13. The kind of treasures you rediscover when moving :). Nice body although I do like original yellow+black stripes one too. What kind of rear shocks are you going to use and do you think the front needs oil shocks too?
  14. Whaw gents! I see some impressive lists here. Mine is rather modest: Myself: Vintage Tamiya Fox (MkII) Vintage Tamiya Grasshopper II Tamiya Novafox (in the box) My oldest son (11yrs) Re Re Tamiya Hornet - black metallic edition My youngest son (7 yrs) A Nikko Vaporizr 2
  15. Correct. You only need it iff you have that moving axle. Looks like a fun project to me! Be sure to send us some pictures!
