  1. Hi all, Nice little eBay find to share with you all. AWDS and belt driven, how ahead of its time was this buggy? Also, it has to be said, a little bit ugly? I do remember them from back in the day, but only as a buggy well out of the league of the Hornet we had at the time. The car does not look to be in bad condition, but that is just from the photos. The body is shagged and a ***** is on the way. Hoping to run this in the vintage class if it is not too fragile. Two little favours to ask of of you brilliant bunch of people: Anybody have a bumper lying around for one of these, it is clear even to me from the photos that I will need one. I have also had some trouble getting hold of an instruction manual, just looking for a PDF, does anybody have the where with all to come to my rescue? Huge amount of thanks in advance! Cheers, Cristian..
  2. I managed to get a job lot of Madcap Parts including a shocks and a shell (the bits I need) on eBay BUT (there has to be one with me of late an eBay!!!!!) the seller came back to me saying the postage was £17 and they only allowed £10 on their listing. mmmmmm, my helpful answer was who are you sending it with? Try Parcelforce 48H as I sent a Traxxas T Maxx (massive nitro monster truck) tracked signed for with £100 insurance for £16 - If you drop it off at any postoffice. The reply was DPD. I have not replied and they have still not posted it 5 days later!!!!! Its not really my problem that they undervalued the postage, its theirs. BUT I do still want the parts. What would you do? They are a vintage seller who specialises in cloths. So surely they know how the "game" of auctions work?
  3. The seller keeps dropping the prices randomly. I got a 5500mah 3s for £7.99 and 2x 3300mah 3s for £6.99! They had 4x 1500mah for £5.99 the other day too. I've got a couple of Floureon packs and they have been fine for me so it might be worth it for a bargain. It's the same seller I got mine off over a year ago too. They use different accounts but the accounts are all "based" in Southall UK so you can tell it's the same seller. Almost certainly a Chinese seller but mine came from Germany so they have stock in Europe at least. UPDATE: Apparently they are available on US ebay too?
  4. Hi folks, A few years back I posted a few photos here on the forum about my rather sad original #58001 Porsche: https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/52184-is-this-a-58001-porsche I never got around to doing anything with it since then (my focus is offroad RC) so I've listed it on starting at a dollar: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-original-58001-Tamiya-Porsche-Turbo-RSR-934-RC-car-DOLLAR-START-/122706228385 or search for "Vintage original 58001 Tamiya Porsche Turbo RSR 934 RC car DOLLAR START" eBay item# 122706228385 I'm in Australia, but happy to ship to many countries in the world. Thanks for looking, Steve (1944GPW)
  5. 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.

  6. What have you got your hands on that someone else built to then find they somehow managed to completely mess it up? Here's what I've found on a newly built CR-01 Rock Socker from Ebay: 1. They don't appear to have used any thread lock anywhere. Result = everything gets loose and falls apart. 2. The rear springs were on the front, and the fronts on the rear. Result = not much difference to be fair. 3. The front and rear hub carriers and knuckles are secured on the output ends of both front and rear axles with 10mm screws instead of 8mm screws. Result: the screws make contact with the steel axle shaft. Swarfe city inside the axles and a nice groove on the shafts. Every one of them...where did the 8mm screws get used instead? Who knows... 4. The front stabilizer rod must have been forgotten during the build - never mind just stuff it in later. Result = rod bent like a banana. 5. Can't get your spanner on those ball nuts to hold them while tightening the srew? Why not just grip them with pliers instead. Result = scratched up ball connectors. 6. Put the ball sockets on the front servo plate in the wrong place. Result = fouls the back of the servo, pushing it forward and the servo saver fouling the protection bars. 7. Put the front suspension mounts on the axles upside down. Result = the axle link arms foul the mounts and suspension travel is reduced to about 1cm. 8. Loose a 22mm screw for attaching the damper to the chassis? Just use a 28mm screw instead. 9. Put spacers on the link arms on one side but not the other. For now I've given up taking the model apart further as there were no ball bearings fitted so I've ordered a set...there's no point thread locking anything until they arrive. I also got another newly built CC-01 lately - this seller did a much better job but still managed to put washers on the wrong side of a ball joint. Still nothing like the mistakes made on the CR-01. Let's hear your stories!

  12. Got a sand rover on there and someone with 0 feedback is bidding on it, I think it might put others off?, as they might think it is a shill bid. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222050624785?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 and some DT-02 parts. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222052834855?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Also got some VW books on there in other items.
  13. Got a set of decals on the bay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222030506497?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 And a basket case car lot for spares. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222030546516?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Any questions, ask away, will end early for you lot.
  14. I've taken $25 off the price for this, now $275 which I think is a bargain for this, and will consider reasonable offers... would love to get it sold by this weekend so I can get it shipped out by Monday. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331780011859 Here are some pics... and I've added a pic in a reply to show how sizeable this thing is compared to some other kits. It may be 1:14 scale but it's about as massive a box as a vintage Blackfoot. Here's a pic with some of my other sealed NIB kits to illustrate the size. I'm not embellishing when I say $275 is a bargain. FYI - to my amazement, since it's the only other one I've ever seen in sealed NIB condition, there happens to be another of the exact same item on ebay currently. It's priced $150 higher... helping to illustrate how good / fair of a price I'm asking: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1989-TAMIYA-1-14-Midnight-PUMPKIN-QD-Sealed-NIB-/171820060041 Alrighty - done and sold! Agreed to an offer of $250 -- a solid deal for the buyer and I get to handle the logistics over the weekend. Win-win.
  15. Nice NIP decals now surplus to my need due to buying complete body sets or finished buggies... make me a 'Best Offer' and tell me you're from TC in the notes! King Cab Decals: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331776068134 Hot Shot II Decals: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331776072712 Terra Scorcher Decals: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331776077416

  17. Hey guys - if anyone reading this is working on or needs/wants a bunch of good NOS Traxxas Cat / Tomcat parts I've got an auction going for some, including a manual, decals, tires, gearbox, and a bunch of other stuff. Looks like it may sell for cheap too... which is fine by me. I just need to get it out of my house! My Cat is already fully restored... http://www.ebay.com/itm/331774572417
  18. Any questions, please ask. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221985072641?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  20. For a while it has been nagging at me every time I walk into the garage and see my shelves of vintage shelfers the fact that two of them aren't completely vintage originals. Specifically the Hornet and Frog. The Frog is all original, but has a re-re body + decals. But the Hornet I built before I developed my collection enough to really divide between runners and shelfers and it's mostly re-re including the body - it even has a 2.4ghz Rx and an ESC fitted. Which means it's basically a runner, and that's where it lives now. I'll build a re-re Frog to use the current "shelfer" Frog shell and locate an original Frog body set at some point when I find the right deal to jump on. Well, on the Hornet front the "right deal to jump on" popped up a couple weeks ago on eBay as a partially built vintage original Hornet kit, which had only been barely started being built and was complete - in other words perfect for a vintage build, without having to sacrifice an intact NIB kit or pay the premium for one. What I didn't realize at the time is that this particular Hornet kit was an Mk1! I didn't really even think about it until reading through Hibernaculum's excellent resource on telling the differences between the different vintage makes and the differences with the re-re. But I was curious so I had a look and lo and behold I got my hands on a complete Mk1 Hornet kit that I intended to build anyway for $100 + 14.50 postage. And... as a bonus it came with a brand new in box hump battery, which alone was worth the majority of the price paid for the lot and didn't need so I sold it and was snatched up quickly for a good price ($55) by our own Yonez, PLUS the Hornet came with a 1980 Tamiya Guide Book! In other words, the Mk1 Hornet kit was essentially free. Not a bad deal! My guess is that when whoever was building it many years ago got to the part with the bare wires on the motor they closed it up and that was it. Here is a pic from the listing... and below it are my pics of the kit, battery and guidebook. Here are my pics noting the Mk1 tells, as described by Hibernaculum's website: It's interesting that the body shell and wing have nothing at all embossed in the plastic. The lexan also feels especially thick/strong to me... Here's the bonus NIB hump pack battery: and last but not least the 1980 Tamiya Guidebook!
  21. Nobody wants a couple bundles of hen's teeth NIP/NOS parts that are immediately worth more than you paid? If I wasn't selling them I'd definitely buy them, the Falcon parts at the very least! Let's do some math... 1) Falcon Parts Bundle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331699188811 $55 obo w/ free shipping -- make me an offer, tell me u r from here and I'll accept any offer, on any item, for $10+ less than listed price... so $45 w/ free shipping Included parts: X9901 A Parts (Bumper Tree)ebay price range = ~$23 (min) to ~$33 (max) X9905 F Parts (Suspension Arms)ebay price range = ~$51 (min) to ~$106 (max) X9902 B Parts (Yellow Parts) ebay price range = ~$12 (min) to $12 (max) Total price range of ~$86 (min) to ~$151 (max) So at $45 they are immediately worth about $40 to $100 more than you paid 2) Sonic Fighter Parts Bundle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331699296644 $45 obo w/ free shipping... so $35 w/ free shipping Included parts: X10003 B Parts (Bumper Tree)ebay price range = ~$7 (min) to ~$18 (max) X10161 C Parts (Yellow Parts)ebay price range = ~$15 (min) to ~$19 (max) X10162 D Parts (White Parts)ebay price range = ~$31 (min) to ~$40 (max) X10163 F Parts (Front Shock Tower + Arms) ebay price range = ~$22 (min) to ~$32 (max) Total price range of ~$75 (min) to ~$109 (max) So at $35 they are immediately worth about $40 to $70 more than you paid
  22. Seriously tempted to grab it for myself but shouldn't. Someone else do it before I lose my resolve! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-58004-XR311-Vintage-1-12-RC-Sealed-NIB-/131633764408
  23. I have Purchased an old used Tamiya Vanquish on ebay. The car is from USA, I am in the UK. The seller had the Global Postage program on his listing for delivery to the UK. I payed for the item with postage then paid an extra for the Global Postage Program "GPP" Ebay information lists it as, paying for customs etc, so you don't get stung when it enters the country. Car was sent from seller to a warehouse in the Usa, (sellers tracking information ends here) Where it was opened, checked the completely repacked. Then was sent on, (new tracking number to get it to the UK) Once it arrived in the UK a 3rd tracking number is generated by the local delivery company. I must admit I was a bit dubious of whether I would still get hit by customs fees. But my package got to me with no hold ups this end. Only issue I have, is that when they repacked it, they lost one of the rear dog-bones (driveshaft) Luckily I have spares, so not a life death problem. I thought I should warn everyone that when using ebays GPP, your item will get unpacked, checked and repacked, so if you have small loose items, be Very careful. Because the parcel was sent to a Usa warehouse then to me. Being sent to 2 places, in my mind it has doubled my delivery time. Any one else used this new GPP ?
  24. Hi all, I recently purchased some bearings from Ebay to ball race a restoration I'm doing, and I would like to share the negative experience, to help protect others. The ebay listing stated ... Seller = pflhobbyboy - Fit To TAMIYA PORSCHE 959 CELICA Gr.B RC Car - 2x6x3mm x6pc - 5x8x2.5mm x16pc The 16 large ones fit fine but the gear box won't go back together properly with the small ones in. I managed to strip another chassis I recently purchased and found that these small ones are actually 2.5mm thick/wide, not 3mm. - 2x6x2.5mm x6pc = correct I contacted the seller but in very poor English they say the fault is mine. I tried to ask them to remove the false statement about fitting 2x Tamiya cars but they are not interested. I search other sellers and 2 are selling bearing kits with the wrong size, 3mm, and 2 are selling the kits with the right size, 2.5mm. I can't open an ebay case because its over 45 days old, 35 of those in shipping. Be careful fellow TC members !
