  1. Hi folks, I have a BNIP Tamiya Egress 2013 Front & Rear High Capacity Damper Set + Stays & Ball Shafts for sale. Detail are on eBay listing (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132190206177), but can do them for £130 + P&P if sold direct here (using PayPal). PM me if you are insterested. I have some other Tamiya/Kyosho stuff listed on eBay and happy to do any direct here for 10% off eBay price (using PayPal). Cheers, James.
  2. In some countries, eBay shows "Product Reviews" for things people are selling. This is part of eBay's (misguided) effort to cast everything on it's site as a "retail" item. And to become a corporate shopping site like Amazon.com. Instead of just being a portal for people to flog their old wares and collectibles (which is how eBay started). Most of you know this already. eBay has been heading down this path for many years. I still try to use the site for vintage goodies. But eBay's "Product Reviews" are an example of where their Amazon.com-wannabe mentality clashes with using the site to sell old stuff. Take this NIB 1979 vintage Sand Scorcher kit, on eBay for example (I am not the seller)... Nice kit. But notice the star rating and the 22 reviews? Those are not about the vintage Sand Scorcher kit. They are not even about the remake Sand Scorcher kit. A handful of them might be, but overall the rating appears to be built from anything on eBay that has the words "Sand Scorcher" in it, where the review box has sprung into action and people have thrown a comment in. From cars, to wheels, to bumpers, to decals, to chassis, to repro... if the seller used the right keywords and details, it might get lumped under "Sand Scorcher" in eBay's dumb database. Here are some reviews which now appear on the page of the vintage NIB Sand Scorcher... If you're the seller of something unique and vintage, the risk is your listing might end up displaying a rating (good or bad) from stuff that is unrelated to what you are selling. Luckily, it seems the seller can turn the Product Review feature off. And since I only just found this, I thought I'd share how to do it... Go to: "My eBay" Click on "Account" tab Click on "Site Preferences" To the right of "Sell Your Item form and listings", click on "Show" To the right of "Show product ratings on your listings" (if available) click "Edit" Click the radio button for "Do not display product ratings on my listings" Click "Submit" If you're selling anything vintage in particular, I would suggest turning this feature off to ensure your vintage goods aren't associated with reviews for modern retail, re-re, remake, repro stuff.

  3. I got a new 8.4v 3800 nimh pack from overlander last week. Used twice on my Thunder Dragon but found it made the car too hard to drive with 120a esc and 10.5t brushless. ESC has now died so want to go back to 7.2. Has a deans connector installed by overlander. I have tamiya adaptor for both a charger and/or tamiya esc plug. Maybe good for a big wig rere? Cost me £29 for the pack and £3 for each adaptor. It's this pack but with a deans plug. https://www.overlander.co.uk/premium-sport-3800-8-4v-power-pack.html Make me an offer before it goes on eBay? Now on eBay. A bit of research reveals it will fit any Thundershot chassis buggy, but will also fit any hotshot variant if you get part 50296 Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263000080384 I have deans to tamiya adaptor leads if needed too.
  4. Need to raise funds for other things (including renewing Tamiyaclub membership) so thinning out the collection a bit. Wanted to put them up for offer here before they go on ebay. As the title suggests, I have a vintage Koyosho Ultima and a Vintage Koyosho Outrage for sale. Both cars are pretty much original and complete as far as I can tell. I have never tried to run either car, they were only for display as part of my collection. I have only ever given them a bit of dust-down as they were on the ‘to-do’ list to become display/light runners. Both have the usual signs of age and use, peeling stickers etc, but I would say have been owned by ‘enthusiast’ rather than ‘kids playing with a toy until it breaks’. The Ultima front tyres sidewalls are cracked if you squeeze them, but I would reckon with a clean up and re-glueing they would be perfectly serviceable as a light runner. (I have stored both cars off the wheels to avoid the flat spots for the last 5 years or so.) Two of the spring collars on the Ultima are split, so the spring rate can’t be adjusted as-is and, being on the same side, it will lean to one side if on the wheels. Super easy fix but I have left them as original for now. Both come with the period electrics fitted as shown in the pics, but like so many ‘loft finds’ no transmitters. Bit of a rushed posting / pics I’m afraid, so PM me your email address for more pics / details – just ask. Previously traded with I_am_Scarecrow so I’m sure he’ll vouch for me. Will post at cost and VERY well packed. Based Nr Worthing, West Sussex so if your reasonably local we could arrange pickup or drop off for cost. If you are local enough and want to check them out, let me know. Let me know your offer on either or both. Thanks, Mick.
  5. 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
  6. Having a huge clear out,buy with confidence,feel free to PM me for any info. More Tamiya stuff listed till i have sold what i`m getting rid of. Located in South Leeds,West Yorkshire,local pickup ok. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/anchordriver/m.html?item=182155358527&hash=item2a694e313f%3Ag%3AauQAAOSw3R1XTta5&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thanks for looking.

  7. Hi, got a project car, it is somewhat in poor condition. In box is states KIT NO. 5847 but I don't really find anything useful with that. I believe it is original 1985 model, in club pages there is manual for 58047 which looks to be right, but that extra zero confuses me... Anyone able to provide some info on this matter. Also tips how to get suspension parts would be valuable. Thanks for you help!
  8. Thought it would be cool to start a thread about weird or unusal RC models. I came across a "War Rig" posted by MadInventor posted in the following thread: This is the strangest thing I've seen yet and got me thinking, does anyone own anything more unusual, standard or custom?
  9. I love the three speeds, but the Blazer is special for me - no idea why. A bit like the Scorcher I guess, it's just a classic look. This has been on my to-do list for ages and I bought the project from TC member Kokuzu. Original pics:- On of the things I really liked about this one was that it came with a hand made alloy roof (I believe it's a J-Man work of art):- This makes it a bit special Unfortunately, it was packed terribly (wrapped in one piece of newspaper and then chucked into a box) so suffered not inconsiderable damage in transit from Germany to the UK. Radio box was smashed, front body mount bent beyond repair and a few other things. Annoying, but not a crisis as I have an immaculate condition radio box and picked up a body mount on eBay. If you look at the body pic above you'll also see that someone at some point has cut a slot in the bonnet - no idea why. Anyway, that's first repair. I have a few extra goodies too - like a NIB set of tires (I have 2 of these, so got all 4):- ... amongst other goodies :). More info to follow as I go....

  11. 1987 was a landmark year for Cats. While Schumacher's Cat XLS was winning the IFMAR 4WD OR title, Traxxas was launching the first hobby grade RTR in the form of the Tom Cat, or just simply the Cat. It is a car heavily influenced by Tamiya - a Grasshopper style chassis & trailing transmission, a body shell reminiscent of the Fox and Yellow CVA style dampers, albeit with a unique way of adjusting spring rates. Inspired by an article on URC, I plan to restore and gently modify this car to race at next years Iconic Revival - 30 years after the Cat was released. This is what I purchased on eBay recently vs. what I would like to create...

  18. Last weekend the fifth edition of the Nordic Vintage Challenge was held in Eskilstuna, Sweden. With 57 entries it was the biggest so far and we're hoping to attract even more enthusiasts next time! A bit of history: late 2013 a Swede by the name of Tomas Karlsson (TamiyaTomas on this forum) thought it would be fun to organise a competition for vintage rc cars. Because there seemed to be enough interest for such an event, the first Nordic Vintage Challenge was held in February 2014 at Ekilstuna Modellbilklubb (about 70 miles west of Stockholm). Back then 3 off-road classes were organised: Classic, 2WD and 4WD (classic allowed both 2WD and 4WD cars). The second NVC was held a couple of months later in the summer of 2014 at the Oslo Modellbilklubb in Norway, courtesy of Svein Harald Ytternes (SHY69 on this forum). This time drivers were competing in 5 different classes: 2WD, 2WD Classic, 4WD, 4WD Classic and Big Wheeler. 2015 also saw two NVC's being held: one in spring and one in autumn. By now the tandem of Tomas and Svein Harald worked as a well-oiled machine, with input from other enthusiast through the swedish rc-forum. After NVC #4 it was decided to scrap the Big Wheeler class (at least for now) and try something new. The new class had to be very accessible and cheap, as to attract people from all ages and with all kinds of budgets. And so the idea for a DT-02 class was born (well, let's not try to pretend we invented the wheel here ) under the name of Plastic Fantastic. The rules for PF: - Only 2010 Holiday Buggy (red and blue) and 2011 Sand Rover/Street Rover/Kumamon Buggy allowed - Hop-ups limited to ball bearings, 540 Jonson silvercan motor, shock mount brace, hinge pins for A-arms, Tamiya oil shocks (C.V.A. short set II and C.V.A. mini set II) - Go wild on the body (but keep it recognizable as a HB or SR as no alternative bodies are allowed) This class was a succes with 10 contestants. Training and qualifier heats were held in two groups and the 3 finals were held in one big group. Racing was intense and heaps of fun. With all cars having more or less the same qualities, it was really up to the drivers. Never knew you could have such fearsome racing at such low speeds At the next NVC the Plastic Fantastic class will be organised again, this time probably on both days of the race. While the other classes are not Tamiya-specific, there are quite some people competing with Tamiya cars there too. This year we had two Hot-Trick Hotshots, two Egresses, a 'regular' HotShot and a Super Hotshot in 4WD Classic and a modified NovaFox (raced by yours truly) and FAV in the 2WD Classic, while 2 Top Force Evos were raced in the 'regular' 4WD class. So far we've had drivers from Sweden, Norway and Belgium but we're looking to expand So if you want to know more about this event or are interested in participating, don't hesitate to ask questions! Here are some clips of the Plastic Fantastic finals (extracts) as well as links to footage of the entire two days of racing (you'll have to search and skip if you only want to see the PF footage). - PF Final #1: - PF Final #2:
