    Buying old nib kits for bashing

    According to tamiyabase it’s the same chassis as dualhunter and the last year made was 2008. Not that old and it’s a NIB so you should be good! https://tamiyabase.com/?option=com_joodb&view=article&joobase=21&id=78&Itemid=1063#models-with-wr-01-chassis

    Best esc for 6.5t motor

    Would this ezrun max 8 motor and esc combo work? 99% sure i saw a 18t 0.8 5mm shaft pinion too on ebay or do you not need that pinion size! https://www.amainhobbies.com/hobbywing-ezrun-max8-waterproof-brushless-esc-motor-combo-w-tplug-2600kv-hwa38010402/p971794

    @Peter_B King cab, bush devil and super blackfoot use the same wheel in different colours. For non tamiya wheels hpi 2.2 truck super star mt. Hopefully others know more.

    Traxxas Xmaxx

    Was going to mention stampede kit but guessing not much bigger than your monster racers. Xmaxx looks cool.

    Kyosho Turbo Optima Re-Release!

    Awesome!!!
  10. I recently picked up two vintage trucks a monster beetle and a king cab with very dirty yellow shocks. i have seen a few restorations where shocks were cleaned and made to look like new again. I tried soaking them in dish soap then using a tooth brush but that didn’t work. Also tried floor cleaning soap mixed with water but didn’t work either. How do you get your vintage yellow shocks clean? What cleaning chemicals do you use?

    Scipunk builds a XV-01 Lancia (and learns a lot)

    I found this list when I was looking to buy one, went for an onroad car so don't know if all is needed. http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/rally/482602-tamiya-xv-01-upgrades.html

    Tamiya 47381 - Super Astute (2018)

    Just want to make this works before purchasing parts. I have a vintage king cab with missing rear end, would the new super astute transmission fit without any issues?

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    Rally car - TB01 or TT02 Type S?

    Changed my mind on rally sadly...maybe one day I will revisit the idea. I vote tt02 type s or buy used tt02 and turn to type s.

    TB04 Brushless recommendations

    Depends on esc with my skyrc toro ts50a esc a 10.5 brushless would be fine. Have a look at this website for shimming the gearbox. https://www.thercracer.com/2013/11/tamiya-tb04-pro-build-and-review.html?m=0

    Jumped back into it after 20 years! (2016 Blackfoot)

    Sorry to hijack how much parts does the 1986 and 2016 models share?
  20. MICHAELs TopForce17

    Any guess on re-re 2019?

    I would grab a king blackfoot but doubt that would ever get remade.

    Considering a non-Tamiya for the collection

    If going traxxas check out the slash starts at 189usd and lots of videos on YouTube for upgrades etc. If you want to save a little you can get a roller on eBay for like 100usd or less.

    Another TRF201 Build for General Bashing

    You could unsolder motor wires and solder esc wires to motor.
