  1. Hello. Does anyone have a pdf of the manual for the re-re Egress? It’s not on TamiyaBase. I’m trying to find out what parts are in which bags, as I think they’re different for the rere. Many thanks. The parts I’m looking for (scans are from the Avante 2001 manual) are the brass ‘tube nut’ or ‘pipe nut’ from the front gearbox/suspension assembly (with the matching 3x8 mm countersunk screw). If anyone wanted to sell me a spare one of each I’d be very grateful.
  2. Sorry - it was me that missed it. I’m looking for £300 plus postage. I have now got hold of replacement gearbox covers which would be included.
  3. For sale: original Tamiya 58085 Avante 2001 - Rare and sought-after Tamiya radio-controlled off-road racing buggy. Unrestored condition - body shell is not mint and has some minor damage Vintage contemporary hi-cap hop-up shocks. Original-spec Tamiya black-can Sport Tuned motor. Full set of four very-rare original white Cam-Lock wheels in very good condition (not painted yellow ones!) New re-re Avante cam-lock wheel centres. Original-spec spike tyres in good condition. Custom FRP front suspension damper stay. Also supplied with a carbon-fibre aftermarket replacement option. Tiny cracks in lower gear cases - see photos. More photos available on request. Item is in Cambridge, UK. The Tamiya Avante 2001 shaft-driven 4-wheel-drive off-road racing buggy was released on 19th June 1990, featuring multilink wishbone suspension and a twin-deck FRP chassis . An evolution of the original Avante, this model utilised the lengthened chassis dimensions developed for the Egress. The original Avante bodyshell was redesigned to fit and protect the rear suspension arms. Perhaps the most beautiful of the Avante/Egress series, no vintage Tamiya buggy collection is complete without one! The only model in this series not re-released. With the others (Avante/Egress/Avante Black Special) having been through repeated re-releases, and this model never re-released so far, it is looking increasingly likely there will never be a re-release (hence two recent completed ebay sales for NIB kits at ~£650 and ~£1250). Sales price excludes delivery and local customs/tax/fees. The item is sold as seen and not refundable - I have been very honest and open about details of the condition. The photographs are of the actual item and are to be considered part of the description. Apologies to anyone watching/ bidding recently on eBay - the car is still for sale as auction won by overseas bidder despite the details specifying UK only. Sorry I would prefer to dispatch to the UK, due to frequent problems with overseas deliveries being severely delayed, getting damaged or going missing and as a private seller not a business I cannot afford to reimburse a disappointed buyer.
  4. Sorry you missed out! Either of These aren’t bad for the price https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F382200128578 https://landlmodels.co.uk/collections/210mm/products/mini-210mm-m-chassis-body-shell
  5. Hello I have a NIB unbuilt Tamiya Rover Mini M05 for sale on eBay. ending today UK only despatch I’m afraid thanks for looking Daniel https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264560634846
  6. Dear all. I am looking to restore an Avante 2001. I am searching for the front suspension springs. I would be very grateful if anyone would be prepared to sell a pair. I would be happy with pretty much any condition I understand they are the same as the vanquish. Many thanks. Daniel
  7. Hi. I’ve been trying to get some FRP akin to the nice looking old stuff as seen on Avante 2001 (looks not unlike carbon fibre but a finer weave) without success. The cheap stuff on eBay is poor quality , predictably, but I also ordered some from Masterplatex and though it seems better made, it still isn’t a match. Does anyone know where some can be obtained?
  8. Hello all. Apologies if silly question but has anyone ever tried/seen the 2001 decals on an Avante original or 2011 shell? if not does anyone know if they would fit? I realise the 2001 rear wing is wider Thanks Daniel
