  1. RCJaz taking pre-orders with expected date of end September https://www.rcjaz.co.uk/tamiya-58489-110-rc-high-performance-4wd-off-road-racer-avante-2011-p-90025959.html
  2. If anyone has a set of TT02 Blue A Parts (gearbox covers, Uprights etc), part ref 47333 that they don't need, let me know! cheers!
  3. That’s really interesting, thank you. I’m sure it’s all accurate, and does help challenge my (seemingly incorrect) opinion that the RM fee is money for nothing and it would be easier / cheaper to pay HMRC direct. Clearly not I’m dreading the post Brexit potential of all this nonsense applying to purchases from the good old EU too 😒
  4. Finished my first drifter...a TT02R bought as a deal from Tamico, with a rear diff lock and added Yeah Racing steering, battery posts and suspension mounts, a Fastrax carbon battery stay and Tamiya Drift Spec wheels and tyres. First run with the Rolson tube cutter wasn't great, so saved the other 3 body posts for another day. The ready-painted Datsun 240 body, with light kit installed, came from Seidel with help from @Mokei Kagaku and it's gorgeous (even if I did have to cut a new antenna hole); thanks man! Even on a test run around the small garage, this is a LOT of fun, recreating some Baby Driver moves . Out for a proper test tomorrow
  5. Along with its drifty stable mate...
  6. Changed the rear uprights from Tamiya 3deg to Yeah Racing 2deg, and the rear hex hubs from 9mm to 8mm, and the track fit is better, lower on the body mounts and no clash with the tyres I think it looks awesome (apart from the bits of masking tape for the indicators, STILL waiting for paint) , and now we've had a few dry days it's going out for its first test run tomorrow...
  7. It sold at a price that is between 10 and 20% below UK RRP, including insured shipping. But thanks for your constructive commentary, as ever
  8. USA: every time πŸ™„ Hong Kong / China: never 😁 Japan: occasionally. Customs roulette πŸ˜‚
  9. 100% this. The VAT is fair enough, win some lose some, but the fee is nonsense
  10. I see Seidel have the Tamiya aluminium mounts in stock now, hopefully the rest will follow soon πŸ‘ https://www.modellbau-seidel.de/index.php?firma=Tamiya&best=54977
  11. A lovely RC Mart delivery, under 2 weeks and no customs fees 😎 And....a ££ customs charge notice for a Plaza Japan order which has so far taken nearly 4 weeks πŸ™„ Sometimes, you eat the bar and sometimes, well, the bar, she eats you
  12. Two BNIP Sets of Tamiya 53792 Assembly Universal Shafts: https://www.tamiyaclub.com/trades_model.asp?cid=122740&x=0
  13. Please, I'm better than that! I use a massive flathead screwdriver
