Hi guys, this is a complete 100% vintage original new/NIP Fox build set. Only things not included are body, decals and tires. I'll give you guys a day or two to PM me with offers before it goes up on ebay. Super rare NIP vtg wheels, NIP vtg R parts, NIP vtg chassis. Don't be shy - I'll probably be giving somebody a pretty solid deal on this stuff!
Hey guys - I'm starting to take stock of my pending Tamiya projects and parts and will be selling along some items that were for projects I don't have time for so I can work on a few projects as time permits. First off I have this nice Fox body + decal set straight out of a vintage NIB kit that I meant to use for a build. But I've already done several vintage Fox builds so I'm selling this along for $100 + free US shipping, at-cost global. Just the decals alone are worth almost that, so if you are interested I'd go snag it. It's up on ebay at this link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331654724292 Stay tuned for more over the coming weeks!

Hey guys - with most of us starting to get into our builds of the NovaFox - lets see them! Ive just finished mine - minus the wing at this stage. Looking to put one on that is similar to MadRacers. Gun Metal Grey with some bling rims. Leaving swaybar off - as its useless. Cheers
finallyfox075 posted a topic in Vintage Tamiya DiscussionHi everyone, So 29 years after my parents purchased a Tamiya Hornet and so very badly wanting a Fox, I finally have one. Its in pretty ordinary shape, could have found a better car I'm sure but it came with the box and most of the original packaging. Now for the rebuild. Its not destined for the shelf, its not going to be rebuilt strictly from original 1985 release parts, probably 58577 bits to be honest. I've purchased a re-re Wild One for my daughter whos shown a love for RC so It will only be a weekend runner. I dont care about breaking stuff, i'l just fix it. So, I've ordered a truck load of new parts, all tree's, parts and screw bag as well as heaps of alloy and upgrade parts such as a Thorpe ball diff. Now for my questions, and bear with me cause its been 30 years since I played with a Tamyia. Lipo, brushless, 2.4ghz radios etc werent around in my time. 1. The upgraded Thorpe diff should handle more power but do I go with a traditional brushed motor or step up to a brushless system? and if so any recommendations on a kv? or If I stick with tradition how may turn motor? What are the better motor esc combos in both options. There's plenty of combos (motor/esc) around the $150 AUD mark but whats worthwhile and what will likely go up in smoke. 2./ A lot of esc's these days are forced cooled, any recommendations of cooling mods given the Fox's closed body design? 3./ To go lipo or not? I guess the power system needs to match the drive system. I'm chasing more torque and power increases and looking for more run-time from whatever system employed. 4./ Is there a decent charger capable of charging multiple battery types? So in closing, I'm looking to build a quick, reliable Fox with decent run-time. Lastly, a quality dependable radio and receiver combo. Thanks in advance guys, I'll post progression photos as parts start to arrive and its rebuilt. Cheer Daniel.
