  1. Anyone in the states interested in this? If you don’t like my number, I’m open to any offers
  2. I have the stock plastic ones on my LB and I broke the chassis. It is from 1987 so there is that but the glue is currently holding
  3. Sounds like you are just buying another RC car. Why complicate things?
  4. Grasshopper and Lunch box tied for first. Thundershot takes second
  5. The 18 versus 20 hole is no doubt being used correctly I even put a 20 T just to check if that gave a different result. It was the same. I am using full bearings since I built it. The GFL one I believe. Has two spur gear. Thanks for all the replies I’ll open it up and let you know what I find out this weekend.
  6. Ever since I burnt thru a pinion on my gf01 it’s been sounding and performing all bad. I’ve replaced the pinion twice now second time with a hardened 18T .6 mod. Ruled out the motor being and issue and it’s sounds and performs horrible. Wondering is anyone else has gear box issues with this model and what to expect when I crack er open? Maybe I can pre order parts in preparation for the dismantling. Any ideas as to why the gear box might sound horrendous? I’ve been rolling with a hot reedy radon. But not too hot.
  7. Oh yeah the body gets trashed on the FJ 45. Get some shoe goo to help keep it together. I now have two bodies because they get so trashed. Lots of cracks but shoe goo mends them back together
  8. Funny to stumble across this. I was recently reworking my vintage boomerang front gear box because something wasn’t right up there. I was able to spice those c clips from another tamiya model. Let me see if I can look back through my purchased listings. I never did get my gearbox sorted.
  9. I’m a big fan for the gf01. Here is mine I use a NiMH and a flysky radio with a hot reedy radon motor. I love this car and it’s my go to these days
  10. The whole top row are my cars from BITD. I even have the build manuals to all but the LB. Sadly I did get rid of and / or destroy of more than pictured like Frog, Audi Quattro y, Hot Shot, Cold Buster and Avante but I’m happy about the ones I retained i also replicated my Audi Quattro 58036 and believe it or not this car does include some of my original Audi parts like one front shock, front bumper mount, one tire and rim, some of the plastic bumper “top hats” and steering rods. So my Audi kind of lives on and I have the build manual too
  11. Wow. Short wheelbase. I’ve still have yet to see one in person. As stated above lots of re re parts are the same like the radiator (I think) but the re re grill is totally different. My suggestion is to get the slotted grill from shapeways if you don’t just repair that one. Yeah, the bulkheads and the shock tower do break on these guys and I’ve about used up my vintage parts trees running and restoring my LWB and my 58036 which believe it or not shared mad parts with wild willys. Good luck with the restoration project! Here is my one old and one new for your viewing pleasure
  12. I’ve Never seen this model. Must be a rare one!! Congrats on saving it! I hope you can run it gently and enjoy it
  13. I wonder how different they are? https://www.ebay.com/itm/266091007314?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=2h4Q2XS4TQS&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=l_KEjuzlRnC&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY with a wild Willy’s motor and the mating gear you should have a runner. Or at the very least harvest the shaft and spacer and use the gear out of the bag you posted earlier.
  14. BUY IT NOW. you will be closer to the finish.
  15. Thanks. I kind of want to redo it to this gold if I can get the paint off properly without damaging body and decals
  16. Could this be one of the parts you need? https://www.ebay.com/itm/234042099776?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=y_fPZF2ASMO&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=l_KEjuzlRnC&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  17. Well I hope you get it going and those tires work. if you needed tires in a pinch the Honda city turbo tires fit as they use the same rim. Here is mine before I found the original tires.
  18. Check with this seller. Maybe he has the rest of it https://www.ebay.com/itm/225349893020?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=9flywh-lqpm&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=l_KEjuzlRnC&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  19. Wow. What’s a great looking buggy. I like those tires. Would love to see some better pictures of them. Looks to be on the original rims? I’ve never seen other tire other than the original and the HCT ores mounted to these rims. More info please. On to the gear box. In short 58036 and the opel are the only cars that I’m aware of that share the exact gear box. Close gear boxes are wild willys and Willy’s wheeler. The good news is it looks like you have the motor with the pinion as that’s very hard to find. The bad news is wild Willy’s pinion is different size (I think) which to me means that the mating gear is different however I could be wrong on this. Someone here will know. Might be worth picking up a Willy’s for parts and see what you can get out of the gear box. It also shares a handful of other parts with Willy’s and wheeler. I don’t know the specifics on the wheeler gear box but those are as rare if not more rare than Audi. I really love the 58035 Audi and I hope you can get yours going
