  1. Hello everyone, I am a new member of TC. I would like to know (In your opinion) what Tamiya chassis has more users, parts and hop-ups. TT02 Maybe? Thank you very much, I hope to learn a lot here.
  2. Hi all! I am new here and just recently got back to the RC hobby. Just a few days ago I bought 2 Tamtech Porsches, a Jägermeister and a Vaillant Edition, simply because I really like te 1/12 scale and think those two models are two of the most beautiful onroad models ever by Tamiya. Both cars are not in perfect condition, however the bodies themselves are put together well enough for me to consider putting them on display in my living room. The bodies are well made, not nearly perfect but without any huge errors. There are some lines not perfectly on the right spot at the back fender for example but I can live with that as it is a self assembled body and chassis anyway. I probably wouldn't have built it better. Both models look quite good and after cleaning them yesterday I thought about putting them in their final spot for the first time. There is a huge issue though. When cleaning the bodies and chassis I realized both smell terribly. And I mean old chain smoking granny levels of bad. When I wiped the bodies just with a wet microfiber cloth it turned from white to this yellowish/brownish color you might have seen when you smoke a cigarette through a handkerchief. The bodies after being wiped a few times don't really smell anymore, maybe a bit like soap but I am fine with that since I used a bit to help cleaning :D Both chassis are a whole other story. I rubbed and wiped and used Q-tips the whole day yesterday and still they stink like ***. I simply can't have them that way in my living room. Now here is the question. What can I do to get rid of the smell? I will most likely have to take apart both chassis anyways since one probably has a broken diff ( I think using a tuning motor, and a cheap one at that wasn't a good idea of the previous owner) and some other parts are broken like the back body holder of one model. I won't really use the models for driving, I want them to be in driveable condition however. If there is a way to get rid of the smell for now I would gladly take advice though without having to disassemble them completely. I was thinking maybe stripping the models off their electronics and putting them in the dishwasher at a low heat program could help, any experience with that? I would really take any possible adivce, maybe stuff like Febreze works? It is currently really good weather in Europe so going out is a bit more tempting then cleaning old RCs. Besides that I would like to soon build a Blackfoot 2016 (I hope this is a decent start to get into monster trucks or something fun and useable) to bash around in grass and forrests and a bit down by the river. I can't drive the Tamtechs anyway currently since I don't know of any onroad track close to where I live. Any advice?
  3. The awesome new Tamiya M-07 Concept car has one flaw. There is a hole on the bottom of the chassis, said to allow access to the pinion screw, that has the potential to allow dirt and pebbles into the transmission. This would wreak havoc on the gears. Tamiya provides aluminum glass tape to cover the hole. Unfortunately, the tape peels off after the first run or two as the chassis bottoms out on the ground. I created this plug to close the hole and keep debris out of the transmission. Unlike the tape, this plug is reusable. I suggest you purchase at least two plugs so that you have at least one spare in the event that it gets lost or misplaced. You can even share with your friends that run the M-07. https://www.shapeways.com/product/SEVSZVNE6/tamiya-m-07-concept-chassis-plug?optionId=63334527
  4. Hi, this is my first post here. I just figured I'd share this with the world, since I haven't seen any of those mods anywhere else. If you're only interested in seeing what and how, feel free to skip the next lines and check out the links below (hope that's allowed?). A quick rundown on this trucks history. I got it as a birthday present when I was 14. It was a dream come true and was quickly tossed in the corner for the next 13 years or so to come. I finally dug it out several years ago to strip it of its body which I ran on a Savage 25 a couple of times. Not a good idea, so I put it back where I found it. Over the years I did spend at least some time with the Blackfoot, however, and every time I ended up somewhat disappointed with the driving experience. The suspension was too stiff, unwilling and generally awkward. The worst part to me has always been the steering and it always spoiled the fun with its wobbly behaviour and useless layout (no offence). Anyways... I recently found myself having a brushless Racestar motor/ESC combo and 9kg digital servo lying around - both new since I only ever ran them a couple of times on another RC. On top of that I also had 4 Savage X shocks left. Yesss, you read that right! So I decided to put all of it to good use and revive my very first RC car after its 18 year slumber. That said, I just couldn't leave the steering the way it was - I mean the inner tie rod ball-joint positions are just ridiculous! What were you thinking, Tamiya? (Haha still no offence). Now, long story short. I decided to rework the poor front suspension geometry and throw in all the goodies I mentioned above into the mix for good measure. This here is the result so far. I've got more mods lined up - but I'm not telling. The facia is missing because this way the truck looks freakin evil! You can check out some pictures of the mods under this link: https://goo.gl/photos/F2X7zgJy7UHNmhmC6 Here's a (very) short video of the steering setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2PTnfTFsFQ Here's the first ever trial run - you are witnessing something here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leMEaFB_w5M I'm not going to bore everyone and their dog by listing everything I did and parts and electronics I used. Just ask if you want to know or see anything specific.
  5. Does anyone know where I can get a chassis cover for a Holiday Buggy 2010? Thanks :-)

  7. Totally forgot I even had this, but going through some R/C stuff etc and found it. As can be seen its a used set of FRP chassis plates for the shorter TA03F/S,R/S chassis cars, along with almost everything for the conversion. I will also include the plastic parts that the steering arms attach to (it is currently on a shelf queen) and also the lower gearbox plate for the R/S chassis (not pictured as its currently being cleaned and degreased) . Also included is a Tamiya aluminium 15T pulley for the TA03 and some sort of after market green alloy damper stay. The battery holder parts are slightly damaged, one of the posts had snapped and has been glued and the battery end plate has also been cut slightly. The chassis plates are showing signs of use as it was used on a runner so they are scraped and scuffed. Also not pictured but I will include as much of the counter sunk and normal screws as I can. Ideal for someone looking to convert a runner into the FRP chassis. No idea whats its worth so say, £35 posted? James
  8. As above, i am after a DB01RR chassis tub. Thought i would try here before buying from Japan. Thanks James
  9. I traded a few of my aluminum cnc sand scorcher chassis to my friend and he posted two of them for sale on ebay. this one is machined on the top and bottom, it took about 2.5 hours on my little cnc machine. Also I sand blasted it for a matt finish http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-Tamiya-Sand-Scorcher-VW-Chassis-plate-Aluminum-NEW-USA-Scale-Custom-TRF-SRB-/121789807050?hash=item1c5b3cf9ca:g:6QEAAOSwwbdWIYsg This one is machined on the top only and the screw holes for the radio box are counter sunk. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-Tamiya-Sand-Scorcher-VW-Chassis-plate-Aluminum-NEW-USA-Scale-Custom-TRF-SRB-/121789805135?hash=item1c5b3cf24f:g:GWIAAOSw5ZBWIYdO This is what they look like mounted, They can mount in the regular spot or they can be attached above the mount tabs. They are 1/8 thick aluminum. I test fit each one the holes line up perfect.
  10. Anyone after a TA-02 chassis? Here is mine on the eBay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231426581150?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 No wheels or tires, or receiver crystal... but DOES come with stock motor, Accoms receiver, steering servo and Tamiya TEU-101Bk speed controller. Will also throw in a spare stock motor and a 3000mAh Ni-MH battery. Go take a look... if you can... please?
