  1. I bought the Reely version a few years ago which is a pretty much the same as the ARX version. flywheel is in the rear wheel so it behaves differently to the new Losi, but is a lot cheaper at €225 incl tax. It is still available from Conrad in Germany and they ship worldwide. https://www.conrad.com/p/reely-dirtbike-brushless-14-rc-motorcycle-electric-rtr-24-ghz-2103650
  2. https://www.modelbuild.co.uk/products/tamiya-egress-black-edition-47489?variant=42040561172680 silver wheels
  3. Yep, official Tamiya parts, I have another new set of green as well as the pink versions
  4. Bjorklo’s ‘original’ Egress Black Special https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=122983&id=8721 which inspired me to build my own with his (and others) help https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=132836&id=5010 super pleased there could be an official Tamiya version
  5. I used liquid Rit Dye Lemon Yellow for the wheels on my Avante 2001 custom “black special” with reasonably good results https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=136365&id=5010
  6. They have always sent a shipping notice/updated my account. Sometimes things get shipped within a few working days, but sometimes it takes a week I think COVID is impacting shipping options and affecting staff levels. I ordered some items 15 March, they were shipped 22nd using DHL Express and they are out for delivery today. So not too bad
  7. Manual is available on Tamiya.de https://cdn.simba-dickie-group.de/downloads/300054412/300054412_Bruiser_Slipper-Clutch.pdf
  8. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=75466&id=2640 here’s a copy of the body set instructions on the main site. yep it’s used on the rear of Hornet, grasshopper 2 or rear of Thunder shot series to allow the saint dragon body to fit
  9. Well I’ll be dammed. It does look like it may have come with the Saint Dragon body set. thanks for your help I will try and find a copy of the instructions unless someone here can save me the trouble and just upload one
  10. Ok, so I thought I knew which model this parts bag belongs to (one of the F1 cars so I thought) but no matter how many manuals I look at I just cannot find it. I’m pretty sure it’s Tamiya, but if it’s not that’s where Im going wrong Any help appreciated, thanks
  11. I thought that the RS1800 badges that go behind the rear wheel arches look a little big. I was comparing to some actual photos of a real car, but I could be wrong. I haven’t fitted the yet, just offered them up. The smaller RS1800 looks a better size but there’s only one of those which goes on the boot lid. I also bought a set of the Marlboro decals for the mk2 in 1/10 scale. The larger decals are nearly bang on scale for the Tamiya shell, so these are the right set to get, but some of the medium/smaller logos are a tad too big.
  12. https://www.littlecaraddict.fr NB, look under Miniatures, there’s a option for RC rally
  13. I bought a set of these as well, went for 1/10 scale. I should have ordered a 1/12 scale as I think 1/10 are slightly to big Mine came from https://www.littlecaraddict.fr, I suspect yours did too
