  1. Nice! I still need to build mine. I read that the new Castle motors don’t fit due to how the wires come out of the motor, they interfere with the motor mount housing. Do you know if your Castle motor is a new one?
  2. Will these dampers fit on the Super Astute? Thinking of getting a SA, wondering if it’s worth grabbing a set for that car, assuming they fit.
  3. More details on this model: https://tamiyablog.com/2019/09/tamiya-58675-mercedes-benz-g-500-cc-02-chassis-cross-country-2-official-details-and-description/
  4. I bought a £2 tube from RCMart which works really well. Running a stock MF01X and the tyres were coming off the rims on every run. Now they stay firm. It came with a tiny needle to make applying the glue easy. I still managed to get a little bit on the edges of the tyre, and on my fingers. It’s sticky stuff!! I was initially worried about getting the tyres off again, but to be honest the M series rims seem to bashed up extremely easy when when doing general bashing, so I may just replace the rims too (they’re cheap enough, again from RCMart).
  5. I managed to damage the internal gears on my MF01X, so I thought I'd go for the Speed-Tuned set instead over stock. I learnt the hard way that bad pinion mesh alignment can cause issues! Looks like pinion position on the motor itself needs to be slightly different to stock too, as the spur gear mesh doesn't cover the entire piece (if you see what I mean).
  6. Amazing! One of my all-time favourite cars and liveries.
  7. The TB looks cool (just reading online about them). How do they differ against the TT02 in terms of performance etc?
  8. $175?! That's incredible. I am guessing the UK has no prices like that! And, I bet Tamiya USA wont ship world wide, either.
  9. Looking at some chassis shots of the CC-01 online, it looks very open to the elements. Anyone think that this could be all covered up? Something like the XV-01? I guess it's got a high ride-height so it's less of an issue that something like the rally car.
  10. I just looked on TamiyaBase and it says the CC-01 came out in 1993! Had no idea it had been around for so long.
  11. Just saw this on Tamiyablog. https://tamiyablog.com/2019/08/the-time-has-finally-come-for-a-new-cross-country-chassis-tamiya-58675-1-10-mercedes-benz-g-500-on-cc-02-chassis/ Love the CC-01 Land Rover, may get one at some point. Many CC-01 owners here?
  12. I’ve got a few Tamiya models and the only one that I’ve had slipping tyres with is the MF01X. The rally tyres constantly come off the rims. I’ve bought some new rims, and some glue (from RC Mart, can’t remember the brand off the top of my head), so this will hopefully sort the issue out.
