  1. Thanks everyone, I managed to swap the bushings for bearings
  2. Has anyone swapped the bushings for bearings in a Super stock motor?
  3. Those are heat sinks for the mechanical speed controller, ESC's were rare and very expensive back in the mid 80's
  4. Just got this little gem that's been sitting in a box for the last 30 years, mk.2 or mk.3? Anyone know?
  5. Hi all, I just got this Vintage HotShot which is in pretty good condition. I know by the bumper it's not a Mk.1 and I wanted to know the difference between a Mk.2 and a Mk.3 if there is any.
  6. Dude, the thread is tighter and smaller than the Tamiya screw and length is the problem, with the spacer the long screw supplied once fitted with the spacer will not go into the shock tower. The front kit is ok though, the screws and spacers are the right length
  7. Has anyone used fastrax aluminium lower suspension arms and shock towers for the TT02B? And if so did you manage to install dampers with the screws and spacers provided because I cant
  8. Want these lil' batches to go faster!

  10. I'm going to keep the super stock motors for my DT-03 and find an esc that will run them, hopefully at this shop in london I'm going to where he advertises a lot of Robitronic brushless setups and esc units. Ever heard of Robitronic? Will one of their brushless setups suit my tt02b? Prices vary from £45 - £200 for motor and esc combos
  11. Thanks Jonathon, I'm from the states but living in the UK, rc hobby shops are few and far between and tamiya stuff is scarce even on UK based online shops so I'm picking up bits where I can, I'm just nostalgic for tamiya, I'm going to an rc shop in Brentford in the London area and see what they got, I look into a brushless setup.
  12. Really? Why not? What will make them work? Hi nb TMM, I appreciate you taking the time to type all that out for me, I've just got back into the hobby and have a TT02B and a DT-03, both stock out of the box except for ball bearings on both and the aluminium shaft and propeller hubs on the TT02B and carbon damper stays on the DT-03. Now I've bought the below stuff for a bargain from my cousin who is now expecting a baby. So all NEW still in the box; -Tamiya sport tuned motor -Tamiya super stock BZ motor -Tamiya super stock RZ motor -TT02b high speed gear set 68t -TT02b aluminium motor mount -Tamiya 20t & 21t and 22t & 23t pinion gears So I want to do stuff with all that but don't really know where to start or what to combine with what, the terrain I got is huge flat open short grass pitches used for cricket with a few uneven areas here and there. So what would you recommend to start with or do I need to get other stuff? Thanks Rod
