  1. G'day peeps Need help with restoring my Falcon plastics Firstly I have a practice bumper (see pic) so I am willing to try different methods. I know I'm not going to get the deep scratches out and have so far sanded half the bumper with 400, 1200 and 2000 grit wet and dry. I am happy with the smoothness however as you can see in the pic it has a milky white appearance now. Have I done something wrong or is there a way of restoring the black finish? Will the same thing happen with the chassis and other harder plastic parts? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks Chris

    MRC ROAD WINNER

    Took my road winner for a spin in the sand 😀 https://youtu.be/HqEA_Tv48j4
  3. Buggy has been sold
  4. Hi All, I have some tyres that I got as a job lot with my Thunder Dragon many many years ago. None of them are reallt suitable for my TD and rather than chucking them out, I am hoping they will be of use to you guys. All are used but good condition without splits. Make me an offer on any of them, so long as postage is covered to UK as a minimum and PayPal gift is sent I don't mind what they go for. Some I can see are Hot Laps and some others are Schumacher. Afraid I don't know what cars they are for. Please don't let them go to waste. I posted a thread last year about these tyres and there is some helpful info in there (among comments from me struggling to post images ) https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/82276-vintage-tyres-quiz/&tab=comments#comment-663640
  5. Hi All. Probably a long shot but I'm interested in getting this setup for my Thunder Dragon shelfer. Not sure how much they are worth and might be outside of what I'm comfortable spending but if you don't ask... Looking for a used set. Please let me know if you can help.
  6. Hi, I'm new at the club. I bought about two year ago a Blitzer Stadium (a release maybe). Since then I have modified many things on it. Looking on Internet to find new thing to do on the truck. My fun is to find what is cool on recent RC cars and try to reproduce on mine. I have already: installed front and rear carbon fiber shock tower with homemade aluminium parts upgraded the shocks (aluminium) upgraded suspension arm shafts (basic) removed some plastic of the chassis. Lower now replaced most of the screws ... I have modified many parts. So if you are interested to know the parts that I used to upgrade the blitzer, fell free to comment. Hope you will enjoy my first pictures. I will list soon all the modifications on the truck. Glob356
  7. Built but never ran (any slight scratches are from build), includes all original parts, original box (some tears but ok condition), Airtronics XL2P Controller (never used and in original box with servos already installed), and 1 extra body (unpainted) with decals. All items have been properly stored for over 30 years. Nerf bar and CRP battery tray can be removed and original antenna and battery tray installed. Extra body and decals are a new purchase and not vintage. If you have any concerns about the condition of the equipment this is a comment by Holmes Hobbies about the Trinity Monster Horsepower "1985 World Champions" motor that was purchased around the same time and initially supposed to go into the Supershot. This motor was recently sold. "We figured you might be interested in some of the stuff sent to us for repairs. This week's gem is a nearly mint vintage Trinity Monster Horsepower "1985 World Champions" motor. This thing has some crazy soft springs and the power leads are attached via ring terminals. After all these decades, it only needed a simple rebuild and now it is good as new!" Treat yourself to an extremely rare true shelf queen. $700
  8. Hello, this is another rare oldie rc car from my collection, I think it has been driven once or twice.. look at the gears. Complete, manual, decal sheet and clear body. will be listed next week on Ebay. I have about 35 rc cars, mostly 1/12 scale and mostly from the 70' and 80' era. I must make space in my crowded hobby room...
  9. Hello vintage fans, I have a rare Daishin rc car for sale, complete with transmitter and charger in the original box, few times driven. If someone is interested? https://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/Daishin-rc-vintage-classic-car-Chevron-B-36-1-12-scale/273317630428?hash=item3fa30011dc:g:LiYAAOSwlmhbLt4F I have also other rare 1/12 scale rc cars that i will sell in the near future.

  12. Hi all, I recently acquired a Tamiya Sand Scorcher 2010 re release and have set it up with a 3350mah battery and torque tuned silver can (i thought any more powerful would be overkill with this chassis). Everything else is stock and I've just built up the chassis a week ago and have tried it out a few times on varied surfaces. (even in Britain's march snow). i find it great but i have found a few problems which as an inexperienced R/C driver/ builder I don't know how to solve. First off is the steering linkages, these seem to have an awful lot of play in them and i have bent them a few times. Next is the shocks which seem to leak like there's no tomorrow. I've also seen some lovely aluminium centreline wheels for the SRB online but haven't found any for sale. Lastly is the aluminium chassis worth it? I'm just asking as i have limited experience in this field so not sure if these are one off jobs or if they are available to buy anywhere. If anyone has any advice or pictures of their own work it would all be appreciated. Regards, Ned P.S. the blitzer beetle has a seemingly good stance and strikes me as something that would actually be pretty capable once Hopped up. Has anyone had any experience with upgraded blitzers and is it worth getting one or just investing in a modern buggy/truggy?

    AYK or Tsukuda?

    Hello, i'm Johan from Belgium, last week i bought an old rc car and i never seen or heard anything from this car. The brand on the box is Tsukuda but this brand is only known for static model kits and puppets... I happen to have also an old AYK from 1979 i think, and this car has the same wheels and rear axle, in the Tsukuda box are two optional gears and thy are marked AYK. The chassis is also black anodized. Maybe someone know something about this car? Thank you.

    Kyosho vintage promo video

    Came across this vintage Kyosho RC promo video. pretty cool https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KNjxw5wO7y4 Another one some older guy running his 35 year old Kyosho Lancia Stratos Integra has one these in his showroom if I remembered correctly. http://youtube.com/watch?v=-VxvpLrjuME
  22. Hello, I'm new here (I guess you knew that). Very quick intro... I used to use remote control cars approx. 30 years ago (just for fun, not competition), I started off with a Tamiya Sand Scorcher and later also bought a Tamiya Boomerang (1986 ish). My Mum has just moved house and both cars (and kits) have turned up again, much to the excitement of myself and even more so my 6 year old son. Well, all the Boomerang needed was a new battery and we were away but now we need/want a second car (as you all know) to more than double the fun ! For that reason (and to help fund the second car) I've decide that maybe the Sand Scorcher would be better off in the hands of somebody more clued-up and who could appreciate it more than me and my son will (he'll just smash it up I'm sure), So I'm looking to sell it but really not sure where to price it at and also I'm writing this during my (late) lunch break and just realised I don't have any pictures to upload to make this make more sense, sorry but I will post picture later this evening.

    Wanted: Ford F150 XLT

    Hi all, i'm looking for a Ford Ranger XLT. From NIB to restoration project, looking forward to your offers. I'm located in Germany. Cheers. Dominik
  24. Just picked up a lamborghini countach 58008 and a road wizard cheap on a local site. Both came with original boxes and a box of extras and nib parts and original sticker sheets even the original kraft radio gear from back in the day. The road wizard just needed cleaned up and it's ready to go, turns out to be near mint and works flawlessly. My question is more towards the lambo, it's a basket case with a few important parts M.I.A. (axle, diff, hubs) but to the positive it did come with a nib rx540sd, nib mechanical speed control and nib wheels/tires and a martini porsche 936 body. If I build the car using the new extremely hard to find parts, it'll turn into a shelf queen when I'd actually like to run it at the carpet track a few times a year just for fun, no competition stuff. Or should I use more modern parts with zero modifications to the original car? I was thinking my old Novak esc and a fresh but tame brushed 19t? mabey even 27t? Or should I dare to run the vintage nib rx540sd? Since I don't forsee selling it and would never consider cutting it up or modification beyond bolt on, plug and play type changes. This would keep the value because I could always return it to stock and would allow me to enjoy this old beauty on occasion. Basically should I restore and just deal with having a couple cars I never run or risk it and run it like it was ment to be run? What should I do with them? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
