  1. Looking really good, very nice Hotshot!
  2. At least the front ones fit very well. The rear looks quite close to the center of the car with too less offset but I'll get a set of black ones and find out.
  3. Do the RM wheels fit at the CS rear as well and more important, do the foams fit the old CS rims? don't have the CS chassis here yet, still takes a few weeks from Japan. Totally agree that it should be used occasionally but for me it is more the joy of looking at it.
  4. They are looking awesome in black on my Rothmans 956 but that's the only exception :-D I would love to have a different design at the front. I'm thinking of using Kyosho wheels. Let's face it, no one is running a 58009 including me, it will only be displayed. Eventually a few slow circles in my living room. I have also thought of modified GT-01 wheels. The BBS Porsche ones in chrome/gold but the front ones don't fit. . . aahrrgggg !
  5. The RM rims are the ugliest set of wheels ever :-) I think I just buy new foams and paint the red LOLA wheels in black.
  6. WOW, that's very helpful. It has the original CS rear axle and wheels and it doesn't fit at all. But thanks for your help !
  7. Hi everyone. I have scored a CS chassis for my new( old) Toyota Celica Turbo body kit. It's a wild mixture of CS and non CS parts but it's complete and it was a steal. It has Datsun 280 ZX / Can Am LOLA wheels (the red ones) at the front and as the rear tyres are looking really bad I thought of using the Can AM LOLA tires all around. Does anyone have such a rear tyre/wheel or a whole car and could make a picture of the mounting point? I have doubts that the rims mounting points have the same dimensions than the original ones from the CS chassis but maybe I'm wrong. Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance ! Cheers ALex
  8. No question, it's gone be the blue one. And that picture is the perfect example. Door mirrors are black, not golden and the color of the wheels is far brighter than Tamiya"s gold - it looks almost like a bright brass.
  9. The paint Job is quite a tricky one. I intend to paint the body shell first (primer and blue color) , then apply the decals, then paint over with clear coat, then paint the wheel archers and all black parts, as they are flat black. It's gone be a challenge ! I have also scrapped the idea to give it to painter. I'm doing it myself. Just building a paint booth.
  10. Hi everybody I'm struggling with my upcoming build, a Lamborghini Countach LP500S Walter Wolf 58005 The original main Tamiya colours are TS15 and flat black (whatever color code that is) The real car has a slightly different colour than the Tamiya one. My intension is to give it to a professional painter. What do you think, should I go with the Tamiya box art or with the real colour from Walter Wolf (my impression is that the Tamiya one is too dark) btw: same goes with the golden wheels, the Tamiya scheme is totally wrong. And the mirrors on the box are golden while the original ones were black. I couldn't find any picture with a golden one. Please let me hear your thoughts
  11. Not at all - that is my old setup. The 11x2 brushed motor is getting very hot but never had any issues. I have installed this one: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ALUMINUM-MOTOR-MOUNT-19T-21T-23T-S-TAMIYA-TL01-TL-01-ALLOY-TL01B-GPM/400741015500?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  12. I have cut the plastic parts on mine. It is really very close and there is almost no space. It is only to get rid of the plastic parts.
  13. They are from Jazrider https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jazrider-Aluminum-Rear-Lower-Suspension-Arms-Set-For-Tamiya-TL01-FF02-G601-GF01/131902367425?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jazrider-Aluminum-Rear-Lower-Suspension-Arms-Set-For-Tamiya-TL01-FF02-G601-GF01/131902367425?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03yKSUTpomA It was only 82kph :-) . I think it was top speed but it was a brushed motor. If you use a brushless then I assume it can go much faster.
