  1. Been on the fence about a TD2 or 4, mainly due to the body look. However managed to grab a sub £200 new TD4 and saw the post about the bodies and from Tamiya Legends videos on the weekend. Emailed Owen at Revive RC via eBay (prompt response, thanks Owen) and he has just put a small batch on eBay so bought one to complete the car. Thought it was worth a mention should any one be interested in the Revive RC body.
  2. Agree, I do wince when assembling the piston arrangement, no matter how much lube you use, this is a good idea and will give the tool a go! Cheers
  3. I have spoken to Joanne this afternoon, she kindly confirmed she is open for business but is dealing with some challenges at the moment, so guys and girls please bear this in mind.
  4. Hmm, still nothing from them. I have used: info@fusionhobbies.com / online contact form / phone number published on their website & left VM's. Tried this morning and phone just rings out.
  5. Sadly unable to get a response and not heard back from FH team.
  6. Good to know, thanks for posting
  7. Tried to contact Joanne at FH since last Friday, emailed and left VM's but received no response back. Hope everything is okay with them?
  8. I think after a 20 something years I am the one who's late to the party This is awesome, who knew that when not driving the WW, he's looking after his plants.
  9. Hi all, Finally getting around to build a couple of kits and preparing myself with the right tools..... I was wondering what type of brushes you have found work well for driver painting? First up is the building of my first RC car (which was a used example with a thunder dragon body) 'The Hornet' and I note that the exterior lights need painting also. Any tips or techniques appreciated! Cheers
  10. Agree with deadmeat666, you can get a DT-03 (58628 TAMIYA RACING FIGHTER - DT03) over at Fusion Hobbies and you’ll get 5/10% off depending on your forum member status. Just to seal the deal the kit has a nice bonus pack included - it features a torque tuned motor and CVA oil dampers. Only snag is your timeline, perhaps the DT-02 (58374 TAMIYA SAND VIPER - DT02) is an option as current showing 1-2 days, and comes with bearings and CVA shocks also better front tyres and some say better looking. Hope that helps, and enjoy the time with your sons with the cars, I know I did with my dad and now he said he wants to do it all again(30 years later) with me which is one of the reasons I am on the forum and have purchased a DT-03 as my starting point.
  11. Cheers for posting this as we were in Ikea the other week and thought would Kallax work for hosting the cars. Looked at the build instructions (great that Ikea host them on the product pages) and apart from leaving a couple of dowel holes (which you can find a suitable plug), you can omit some of the partitions so you can place a car in sideways or on a slight angle to mix it up a bit. Bang for buck a really good option and in a range of colours to suit.
  12. Cheers @Wooders28, likewise it was good to meet you and a few others, cheers for the chat. Hope you have a grass free car now!
  13. Cracking idea...... done my bit by grabbing a ticket this evening.
