There are plenty of very detailed 934 RSR build threads on here; green ones, black ones, red ones, kit ones, bits ones, 236mm ones... So this won't be a hugely detailed step by step, but more the specific points that may be of interest, and I found either interesting or challenging (or both!) when converting a standard 236mm TA02-SW to 230mm wheelbase, making it in theory a better fit for the 230mm body shell as originally intended for the 30th Anniversary Vaillant 934 This build started out as this 84431 40th Anniversary Jagermeister Kit
I'm a little bit obsessed with the 934 RSR shell, I personally think it's Tamiya's most beautiful. I loved building my 40th Anniversary TA02SW, and got a bit blue about the fact I got into this hobby about 20 years too late to have got the 30th Anniversary release! And then, a couple of months ago, I found one! It was built, but an immaculate unused shelf queen. It had never even had a motor or servo installed in it, just a dry kit build First job was to dismantle it and check everything was there; happily everything is present, down to the last 3mm spacer It also came with a few hop ups either built in or in the box, which I've removed and bagged up separately: Front spool, Centre One Way, Gold Aluminium Diff Joint Servo mounts, servo horn, servo cap: Battery plate, stabilizers and stoppers, blue drive belts, blue diff joints: I've sold the original kit diff joints and the painted body shell. The gold aluminium hop up diff joint is up for sale, and at first glance it looks like the blue drive belts are too long so they'll probably go too. The original kit wheels and tyres are also having to go (a different, long story). This is going to be a full runner, with a different livery, different wheels and tyres, blue aluminium diff joints and front and rear stabilisers. I'm not going to do too much else with it, so this won't hold much interest for the off-piste mod-heads out there. But if you're into blue bling, this will be right up your street! I think it will be more of a reverential, step-by-step build of what is probably one of the most iconic kits Tamiya has ever made. Just without a big green frog of a shell on it at the end
