  1. Great news!!!! Chassis and towers arrived the other day. Now to find time for the build.
  2. I have those on order My plan is to attach my usual rare earth magnets in place of the ones supplied. i have rare earths on my crawler and can pick it up by the body without it detaching. (Rig is about 10 lbs with 4 magnet points)
  3. I got one of these. I am on the east coast and with shipping it was over $80 not cut or painted yet but I believe it is worth every penny.
  4. **UPDATE** Maxspeed has shipped me something. I assume it is what I ordered. Hopefully it is here by the end of the month.
  5. I got a response to my missing item case today. He is sticking with the “all packages to US and Australia were returned”. He is offering to send it DHL ground/sea. I told him as long as I have a tracking number that shows me that it is moving then I will be fine. It blows my mind that he thinks it is ok to just leave people hanging like that.
  6. So apparently I am not the only one that got screwed by maxspeed. I orders my chassis and towers in June and got the excuse about DHL in July and then early September. Because the purchase is so old I can’t even message him about it anymore. curious as to if he marked yours as shipped? Guess it is time to file a PayPal claim
  7. Too bad that I can’t get it shipped to the US
  8. Assuming you did some significant trimming for it to fit? I was able to find one in the US and it arrived yesterday. Much longer than I thought it would be.
  9. Tamiya 50746. I have 2 sets waiting on the kit build. Also ordered the YR kit shown above. Hoping it gets here in the next few days. 4 part video on the Mercedes Cabrio body on this chassis. The shocks he used are not right though.

  11. I am ready to start my build but am still waiting for the Yeah Racing suspension kit to arrive. Also need to order the rally interior then source driver heads that have an open face helmet. at this rate I might finish by thanksgiving
  12. What did you use for the interior?
  13. Yeah, so, um, I may have also ordered some hop ups at the same time. Many of them are sold out so I will have to go to the secondary market. i recently bought a rally beetle along with almost every upgrade I could get including the complete Yeah Racing suspension kit. At least I didn’t go nuts on the G-Wagon......yet.
  14. This was more of an impulse buy. I have liked them but didn’t really need them. My next planned hit will be the TC-01 Formula E that comes out in August.
  15. I hit the button too. $31 in tax, thanks CT. now I will have 4 NIB kits plus 2 1/2 restorations to complete.
  16. Crazy part is I am thinking of buying both the D90 and the G Wagon. my problem is that I am addicted to Hop Ups .....$$$$$$$$
  17. Thanks, now I just need to decide if I want to pull the trigger or not. Also considering getting the Defender 90.
  18. I am in the US. I have ordered from Big Boys with Cool Toys and Zoom Room with good success (shipping can take a little while but that is because of the pandemic) I just bought my Rally Beetle from Horizon Hobby on eBay (still trying to figure out how they are selling Tamiya kits) and had it in 3 days. GravesRC in FL has been good. be careful of small shops as many times their online inventory does not match what the physically have. I got burned by Visalia Hobby back in the end of February. you can also buy direct from Tamiya.
  19. I just got my kit. I ordered all of the upgrades that I want at the same time SI I am just waiting on them to arrive so I can start the build. as for the 959, a lot of people are building the MF-01X Jimny and putting the 959 body on it. Gavin from RCKicks did the build on YouTube a month or so ago.
  20. What is the difference between the CC02 G- Wagon 58765 and the G-Wagon 47441 other than the painted body? don’t want to sound dumb but i if I do feel free to call me out.
  21. Zoom Room is great. They had a discontinued part for another brand and worked with me to get it paid for and shipped to the US. I would highly recommend them.
  22. Will the Dirt Hawg fit both front and rear Tamiya Blitzer wheels? 7mm is not exactly a small difference.
  23. That color is gorgeous! I have been looking at doing all 3 bodies (30th, 40th, and Black) but after seeing this I might not go black. Maybe a super dark blue or the infamous Porsche Yellow
  24. question on a slightly different topic regarding this model. I know that the 84431 (40th anniversary) and the 47362 (Black Edition) share a common body (1824141). How different is the body for the 49400 (1825465)? I really like this color scheme and have access to a full vintage body kit but I am not sure if it will fit.
  25. I will easily be able to build 2 complete cars. I already have new servos and will be picking up ESCs for both. One will be built from almost completely brand new parts and will not be run overly hard. The other I predict will end up needing chassis repairs as I intend to relive my mid teens again.....
