  1. I may have some A tree parts, will check this weekend
  2. Thanks for the info, have ordered a few A parts for the spares box. Anyone come up with some ingenious bracing to prevent it?
  3. Hi all, Apologies if this has been raised and answered before, had a quick search but please redirect where necessary. I've almost enough spares to build an egress/avante hybrid, ie egress chassis and locked centre diff parts but not the front or rear ball diffs, however I do have a pair of avante gear diffs. Questions are: 1. Will they work in harmony or will the egress locked centre diff result in early wear/destruction of the avante gear diffs? 2. Any thoughts/experience of how well this combo will run or is it better to wait and source egress ball diffs? 3. Centre diff options, what's better and why- avante ball, egress locked or one way torque splitter? Thanks in advance
  4. Hi, just a query, what are the weak points with the front gearbox halves you mention? Have an egress bitsa project on the go and wondering what I should look out for. Thanks
  5. Looking at the show pictures, looks to have adjustable turnbuckles over originals plain threaded rod, and gone are the blue 6mm rod ends. Wonder what else may have changed? Maybe just preproduction differences.
  6. Hi all, thanks for the advice particularly the high gloss option on decals
  7. Hi all, Anyone own both, if so is the undertray the same considering they are the same chassis? Wondering whether I can reuse my egress one for an avante 2001 body (yet to buy) or if I'll need the whole body kit? Thanks
  8. Hi all, I've been in touch with Trish at TBG enquiring whether a bulk order would qualify for a discount, they are willing but would like to know numbers and what body shells we are interested in. I've made a note of the Saint Dragon, but please all let me know what your interested in and I'll get a quote. If we get as far as concluding an order I'm sure we can find some way of minimising onward postage costs so we all make some saving! So things don't get lost in comms, please feel free to mail direct. Dave
  9. I wouldn't expect them to undervalue the order, and to be honest I'd rather have the insurance for the correct value. But if the orders big enough, could potentially make a small saving on each shell, never know till we ask. Will definitely save by splitting shipping, import duty and RM handling fees vs individual orders though
  10. Hi All, I've been slowly amassing all the parts to built from NOS or from used the kits I couldn't afford as a kid, however like many have hit a roadblock with body shells and stickers. Would any UK members be interested in a group purchase from the above 2 companies, splitting the handling and customs charges, and where applicable the shipping fees accordingly (mci free shipping above $50)?
  11. Rere includes bearings for gearbox and trans. This should help identify those not included and sizes: https://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/rcmanual/47381.pdf
  12. I went for the closest measurement Schumacher ones, as couldn't find 42mm tamiya ones
  13. 42mm front and 38mm rear. Steering rods are 50mm.
  14. Great thread, thanks. Since all the shafts are 3mm, could the gold ones be retro fitted to the V2 highcaps to further improve their responsiveness whilst also making them look more 'factory racing'? Guessing a few spacers would be required at the piston end as the distance between e clips looks longer, but possible?
  15. Also what's people experience with MCI, speedy service, high handling fees uk end? Saw they post free for orders over $50, but need to check if this includes overseas or within Canada only
