  1. Hey Guys... Over the years it seems like I am constantly losing these parts. This is on both a TT-02B and DF-03 with DF-03 dampers. Anyone have any tips to keep them on? Maybe I could increase spring tension?
  2. Would be curious if anyone has anything else…
  3. If it makes you feel any better I painted my DF-03 with TS and it is now cracking. I thought it was because it was cold when I sprayed but no… it was a case of the noobies.
  4. Looks like the gasket is #51145
  5. Hey everyone… hoping for some help. I am wondering if the seals are re-usable or need to be replaced with every rebuild? If you can get them separately does anyone have the part numbers? I installed the oil filled diffs in my sons TT02B and the rear has a small leak so trying to figure out my options. Thank you!
  6. … also…. You can check out Robinson Racing pinions of you want to stick with the Tamiya mount. http://www.robinsonracing.com/catalog/one_eight_inch_bore_pinions.html
  7. Please correct me if I am wrong but thought the point of the high speed gear set was to be able to run a wide variety of spurs. So if you get the yeah racing motor mount and high speed gear set you can break free from Tamiya pinions. You can change to a 48p spur and then use 48p pinions for example. I have all this stuff on order for my sons TT02B so I hope I am correct… lol.
  8. Hmmm… it looks like they are the same as the Boomerang and maybe more. I would keep an eye out on ebay… some will show up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-Boomerang-Supershot-Hot-Shot-Aluminum-Drive-Shaft-Bones-ANSWER-Hop-Up-RC-/303820623999?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 I am not sure if new style bones would fit in older cups… maybe someone else can chime in there. If they do… they are easy to find. If you post the car on ebay for sale please DM me… it is the next on my wish list.
  9. Is it important to keep the parts original? It is pretty easy to upgrade to new outdrives, shafts and stub axles. Parts off the new re-re’s are all over.
  10. How is that drill method working out for you? I have read both sides… from don't ever clean up a comm like that… to you’ll get close to all your power back.
  11. I can speak to the Fox. I have been watching them for about a year and bought 2. I paid $140 last year for the first one and $160 a couple weeks ago for the second. They are both vintage and the first one was in MUCH better shape but still had cracks in the standard spots. Seems like you will be spending at least $140 for a somewhat decent complete vintage Fox. I do think it’s a good time to buy with spares and choice of buying vintage and restoring or just going the re-release route.
