  1. I have seen the future of my Striker, and it does not involve: - stock front suspension arms (parts F2, F3) - a stock front bumper - 2 rear wings (part C13) - 2 sets of plastic parts for the stock rear friction dampers (parts C4, C9, C16, C18) - accessories for the Team CRP shock upgrade (includes optional front springs and rear damper collars) - 2 sets of rear springs (one pair from Team CRP upgrade pack, one pair stock) - rear wing stays/rear shock mounts (parts A3, A4) - a rear bumper (part C6) - a pinion gear cover/inspection cap (part C12) - a pair of stock dogbone half-shafts (part E2) - a mechanical speed control mount (part B5) - a set of upper body mount posts (parts C2, C3, C5) Hence, I am listing them for sale, and listening to offers. They are in clean, used condition, with no structural deficiencies. A number of C-sprue parts are in new, never-used condition, including (but not limited to) the inspection cap (C12), rear bumper (C6), and one front bumper. These parts are based in Canada; as such, package/lot deals are welcome. PayPal is preferred. Pictures of the parts in question follow. Upon request, more detailed pictures can be made available on any and/or all parts, and questions can be answered. Remember that a number of these parts can be fitted to the closely-related Sonic Fighter! Thanks for reading! Edit: Note that I will be absent from May 11th - 28th, so communications will be sparse during that time, and shipments delayed until the 29th.
  2. What you see here is a brand-new set of Lancia Rally wheels, which fit the original ORV-based model (58040). They are still attached to their sprues and have never been opened. These wheels will fit either the classic Michelin TRX-style rally tires that were stock to the Lancia Rally, or the Advan HF-style tires that were recently reintroduced by the Honda City Turbo. I am looking for 160 GBP (approximately $280 CAD at time of writing), which will include shipping, for these wheels, which will ship from Canada. I am open to offers and trades, so feel free to enquire. Upon request, I can pair these with a brand-new set of Advan HF-style tires from the Honda City Turbo's re-release, but note that their outer tire diameter is slightly smaller than the stock Lancia Rally tires'. Pictures ensue: And of course, if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them via PM. Thanks for reading!
  3. Hello Everyone, I have a quick question. In 1985, I had the option of a Fox or a Wild One at the age of 13. I chose the Fox as the guy at the Hobby Shop said it was a better performer. Turns out it was. But, like many of you, I have collected several Tamiya buggies including the Wild One I looked at back in the day. Here is the question, around 2001, before all of the rereleases, I purchased a NIB Wild One kit in absolutely mint condition. I probably paid too much for it, $600 US. They won't fetch that much on eBay anymore, which is ok as I don't want to get rid of the buggy. I would really like to have a vintage Wild One to display along with my Wild One rerelease. So, should I build it or keep it NIB? A perfect scenario would be to keep it NIB and find another vintage one to either restore or build, but there doesn't seem to be many for sale right now. If there are, they seem to be in really bad shape. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks, Brad
  4. 7th - 14th May was the 2016 Model Week at Primrose Valley in Filey Yorkshire. A whole week of RC car racing ................. Both on and off road classes catered for. The off road was on grass and the on road was Tarmac. This year was my second year and cannot wait til next year. I raced only off road with my trf502x, trf201 hybrid and DT03T Aqroshot. check out the link to facebook https://www.facebook.com/primrose.modelweek?pnref=story there was even two heats of Grass Hoppers ........... I will get some of the pictures up
  5. After deliberation and with an upcoming trip to an amateur ice hockey tournament in mid-May, I have decided to list my Tamiya Astute for sale. Unlike previous attempts, I am not wavering on my promise: this car is and will remain for sale until sold. The memories I have are unfortunately not enough to overcome the room and board and equipment fees I will be facing abroad... What you see here is a Tamiya Astute. Several modifications have been implemented, including: - modified suspension front and rear, using simplified Madcap components to reduce weight and complexity compared to the original Astute specification - alloy rear suspension blocks (replacing Astute parts D1) - a complete Tamiya Traction Control geartrain, purchased separately and installed as stock - Super Astute central battery holder (G parts) - ball bearings installed in drivetrain and other areas (where bearings are still used; suspension modifications negate many of the original Astute's areas) In addition, a reproduction shell and wing are included - minor scuffs and scratches appear on the shell and undertray. Blue anodized wheel nuts anchor original lightweight racing wheels and correct kit tires. This car is in good working condition, tested with the electronics pictured (which will be included). These electronics can be removed upon request for a discount. All mechanical parts are in solid structural condition, with no visible cracks or evidence of fractures. I bought this car used and refurbished it prior to running it; since then, it has been run five times, and only twice with the TTC geartrain installed - personal photo records verify this claim, as well as the notion that RC circuit-type jumps were never encountered while in my ownership. I am open to offers and trades; however money is a priority given the circumstances under which I am selling this car. At present, I am looking for approximately 250 GBP (amounting to roughly $445 CAD at writing), which will include worldwide shipping. Where other currencies are considered, the Canadian dollar will provide a baseline for conversions (and remember that it is weak at present ). As this car is based in Canada, this fee will facilitate paying for faster shipping options overseas; otherwise I am willing to negotiate offers if you are willing to accept less expensive (if slower) shipping. I accept PayPal, either marked as 'gift' or with a nominal increase added to compensate for transaction fees. As well as I have attempted to describe the car, pictures do a better job; thus: Of course, if you wish for more detailed photos and/or have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me! I have ready access to this Astute and wish for you to buy with confidence, so I will be more than happy to answer your queries. Thanks for reading!
  6. Hey Guys, I'm looking for the Tamiya 58170 Castrol Toyota Toms Supra GT body / bodyshell for such a long time. I want to have thei sbody / bodyshell. Has someone of you the body / bodyshell for sale? Whatever painted and finished or unpainted. Also I'm interested in parts like the stickers or wing-set. Please do offer all. Thanks.
  7. I'm going to refurb my FF-03, some raw ideas on my mind and a nice set up found using stock spur+pinion and a LRP Runner motor (22.400 rpm). Current coditions are shown below :-)
  8. Hello guys, a little help trying to figure out which vintage car this is.. I got a couple boxes of old RC parts, and want to get them going, but kinda need some help identifying the car(s).. Thanks
  9. My FF-03 is on sale from ages, none want it so I decided to revamp the car with some new stuff. I'm a basher, not a racer and I need to know if the 54297 reinforced lower deck is more durable than the stock one (that is covered in deep scratches). Tnx in advance
  10. Just starting to get the parts in for a new project... called X here is what I will be starting to work on, got this chassis from my good friend. Will be modified... . new rim :-)
  11. I'd love some recommendations for set of street tires that will fit the vintage Hornet/grasshopper/etc. I've heard the Brat tires could work but the wheels don't look like they will fit the axles. I bought a set of 1.6 slicks but they inside diameter is too big and do not grip the wheel at all. Suggestions?
  12. After rebuilding my original 84 Hornet I've decided to tackle a second new Hornet build applying all that I learned from the first build. I'm sure I'll still make some mistakes and learn more throughout this build. Your suggestions are welcomed and needed!
  13. Hi! Does anyone have a Tamiya TT01E knocking about? Thanks, Sam
  14. Hi can anyone help...got a newly built Honda city turbo with Tamiya TBLE02 ESC hooked to a Carson receiver, a reflex wheel pro 2, transmitter is stick style. Batteries are fresh in transmitter and fresh charged Nicad (it works as just in my grasshopper!) pic below shows setup. When I turn on it appears to connect, and then it may or may not throttle , and then cut out...then back on again, reverse if you flick the stick a couple of times. Steering can work, then stops again, then works...any ideas guys and gals?? Thanks, it would make my 8 yr old day....!
  15. Hey Guys! one of my friends made me a quick vid on the Juggernaut, let me know what you think! for my blogs on my builds follow me on Instagram @RCBah Thanks For Looking!
  16. Ever since it hit the shops in 1991, I wanted a Bullhead. I never got one as a kid, but now I'm a grown adult/big kid I've finally got myself one, albeit the re-released version. I've had it a while, but believe it or not only finshed the build over the Christmas holidays. I didn't manage to get many buld pics at all, but i did get some while painting the shell. At last! Painting - primer coat then a few light coats of Tamiya Metallic Blue, then Tamiya Clear. This is the only build picture I managed to get (spot the little helper) And the finished article. Fully ball-raced and painted box art. The only difference is that I bought an extra flag as I always wanted two when i was a kid. This thing is a beast. Took it outside for some shots, although the light makes it look like a flat blue even though its quite shiny in the flesh Won't be running this near any tarmac, if i take it out it will be soft dirt or a beach - frightened of rolling it and trashing the body. Might have to get a spare shell Cheers

  18. Hey, I have just restored my Tamiya Vanquish and would like to share. Vanquish is a really nice rc car. But the driver do not fit the cockpit so I remade one. I am still using the old Am 27MHz controller with Tamiya CPR unit. But what would be the difference if the electric parts were upgraded to 2.4G? Also could you suggest any hop-up for this master piece?
  19. My first spray paint since my college years with some inspiration from other guides on the internet. The new Honda/Acura NSX body is going to be on my TRF419X chassis. Note. The image may not be very clear as it was taken inside a DIY spray booth. Main body colour scheme Pearl White, Tamiya PS-57 Roof, Rear and front bumper I'd changed the standard black (PS-5) having got some interesting information from a blog at Soul RC in the following order:- Translucent Purple, Tamiya PS-45 Pearl Clear, Tamiya PS-58 Metallic Red, Tamiya PS-15 Gun metal, Tamiya PS-23 The pearl clear was suppose to be the first layer, but I didn't want high reflective (or sparkle?) in the finish so I'd decided to the change layering sequence. More image to follow. Front close up (image below) of the bumper; you can just about notice the dark metallic/pearl purple effect.
  20. Finally found one thanks to OCD on here. Also, thanks to all who helped me and for the friendly replies!! This pic ain't the best but I finally, finally own one 😎
  21. I've built a simple rear mount for a spare tire for my Pajero, but since Tamiya only supplies 4 wheels and tires with their kits (how dare they!) I am now one short. Does anyone here have a Pajero MTW tire + wheel left over from an upgrade or something, and is willing to share? Many thanks. (This is one of the front wheels posing for the shot. Note the gangsta-lean of the car.)
  22. I've recently acquired a TA03R-S in an auction, but really just wanted the body shell. Now you can have the rest. The tires are shot from sitting (splits). Price is negotiable, but please no less than $50USD. Here's a pic: and the bottom:

  24. Hi all, I am looking to sell my Nitro Thunder to someone who will look after this model and use it to its potential! See pictures below. The car has never been run in, having only been used for a few hours. It has recently been overhauled and serviced, by Nitroflight Models Ltd, Rotherham, and is fully functioning and runs perfectly. There are a range of spares, including charger, spare batteries and fuel can. All original paperwork is provided, along with original packaging. Looking for offers so fire away! Any questions feel free to ask and I shall reply as soon as possible - I have a price in mind for this. Thank you, Dan
