  1. Perhaps you could do it in the Jordan Buzzin Hornets style in the future?
  2. There is footage of Lewis driving RC cars, on Blue Peter I think(UK television show for kids). I think driving a turbo-hybrid F1 car might say otherwise! But I see where you are coming from RC wise. the only one I've seen was of the Racing Point drivers, I was not surprised by Lance Strolls driving...
  3. Spent an hour this afternoon fitting a bearing set and sport tuned motor. I’ve gone to a 20t pinion as per the kit instructions for sport tuned, kit standard was 14t. The tensioner has been backed right off, cheers WillyChang. I’m now looking for pics of this type of chassis for ideas where to place the electrics. Check out these wonderful bushes, now in the bin!
  4. Some stuff for my box kit standard TA03F.
  5. Bob is a legend, he liked a post of mine on Instagram, the wife didn't understand why I was running around like a lunatic!
  6. Rare sight in the UK, my Haro Monocoque frame was built by Mountain cycle.
  7. I’d not really considered the spares problem with this, definitely something for me to think about. Appreciate your thoughts.👍
  8. That Citroen looks interesting.
  9. I'd completely forgot that I owned this, built during my cal look bug days.
  10. I dug this out recently, the chassis has been used with a different shell. Here is the body & chassis re-united after 20+years. Bog stock chassis complete with plastic bushes. Underside showing very little in the way of battle scars. I'm considering putting it into use, on the cheap! Bearings will be the first thing fitted and I have a spare TBLE-02S that could be used. It has an Acoms AS-12 servo fitted, will this do for a bit of car park bashing? Or bin & replace? Does anyone have an opinion on what motor to use, stick with the silver can or go hotter if these chassis can cope? Any opinions glady received. Ta.
  11. I found the original shell for my TA03F today complete with 20 + years of dust! It's never been used as an Escort Cosworth shell sat on the chassis. A rare pic of a bog standard chassis, no ball bearings on this bad boy, still running on bushes.
  12. Love the shell! I once spent an obscenely long time looking at the ex Senna MP4/8 at the Donnington Park motor museum, simple & stunningly beautiful imo.
