  1. G'day peeps Need help with restoring my Falcon plastics Firstly I have a practice bumper (see pic) so I am willing to try different methods. I know I'm not going to get the deep scratches out and have so far sanded half the bumper with 400, 1200 and 2000 grit wet and dry. I am happy with the smoothness however as you can see in the pic it has a milky white appearance now. Have I done something wrong or is there a way of restoring the black finish? Will the same thing happen with the chassis and other harder plastic parts? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks Chris
  2. Both of mine are cracked trying to finish my restore anyone got a pair ? i don’t need the front suspension parts just the rear lower suspension arms thanks Simon
  3. got my "new" falcon in house but the tires are dry rotten and hard as can be. measured the rims and they are around 1.75inch at the beat front and rear? correct? what tire alternatives are out there? and what cars use the same size? (for reference for others with the same size wheels) found for the rear jconceps 1.7. will these fit? and the jconcept 1.9 ribbed for the front? (to big but maybe they stretch a litlle on 1.9) really want to stick with the stock wheels and rather make tires fit than change to a decent size wheel.
  4. hi, not new to the hobby or site but first post on this forum. i recently aquired a falcon and was planning to make it a bit more competitive against the newer (stock) buggy's and entry traxxas models etc a the local off road track so need some help on what to do with the suspension,engine and weight stuf? -offcourse the first thing to do is change the dogbones -was planning on some custom cf braces and front skitplate to stiffen up the chassis and possibly build a cf chassis. (not sure how much weight i need to lose) -suspension need to be changed with some modern dual rate shocks still need to decide what engine i'm gonna run, got a sport tuned laying around somewhere but was thinking to go hotter. how fast can i go without shattering the gearbox? and what brushed engine is best? any other tips? do's and dont's? what tires do i need to run? will post some pic's as soon as i got delivered and update the progress

  6. The off-brand cereal of R/C cars... behold the Sky Hawk!! - "Almost like the real thing!" - "It turns on!" - "Has real rubber tires... FOUR of them!" Seymore pics at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brandsmart-USA-Sky-Hawk-Radio-Controlled-car-/121892008953
  7. Hi everyone, quick question... I have a brand new striker gear bag but its missing the differential spur gear (the part that the 3 small bevel gears go into) Apart from the sonic fighter and falcon, is there any models which share the exact same part? There are plenty of hornet, wild willy and lunchbox gear bags about, could I used just this part from these sets????? Thanks!
  8. These are Marui Hunter ... ahem... Falcon/Striker front tires for under $10 (obo) if anyone needs a pair. Only one left: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-MARUI-Pair-of-OFF-ROADER-Dune-Buggy-Front-Tires-Brand-New-Never-Used-/371400449157
  9. 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

  11. Hello, as mentioned in a previous post I just got back into the hobby after an 8 year hiatus. I had sold all my RC stuff so I had to start from scratch. Since I am a vintage only buff, I picked up this Tamiya Falcon on CL for $40. I really wanted a Frog or Blackfoot, which I also picked up dirt cheap along with another Faclon Parts car dirt cheap on Ebay after buying this one, but those are future projects or will be sold. I first went to Ebay and bought a whole Laundry list of stuff, Three Falcon parts lots, including the one already mentioned, a used Airtronics MX-3 Transmitter and reciever for only $23 shipped, I chose this because its what I used when I was in the Hobby back when, A new Airtonics BL Racer ESC, A new Aitronics standard servo, full bearing set, shock oil and grease, CRP dogbones, CRP chassis stiffener and bumper, a Fireball 19 turn modified motor, four 5300 Nimh battery packs, a Radio Shack dual trickle charger, body clips, etc. To date I have spent a grand total of $430 for everything, but I do not think thats too bad, since in the end I will have two Faclons with parts to spare, a Blackfoot, pretty much complete, and a Frog, needs wheels and tires. I can always swap the electronics from one to another, so with the exception of a couple of new motors and the wheels and tires foe the Frog, I am done spending money. I totally tore down the Falcon, cleaned and replaced broken parts and rebuilt. I have taken pics and show the before and after of the Falcon, I have not yet run it but will do so as soon as I get the chance.

    WANTED/TRADE Falcon Parts

    I need 2 parts to repair my falcon. I have MANY other Falcon parts I can trade. Some parts have never been used. Most parts have been pulled from assembled Falcons. I have a whole bag of nothing but broken parts... I'm hoping there is another crazy Falcon hoarder like me and we can trade some extras. Here's what I need. C3 and F4: Here's what I have: Thanks, Ryan
  15. Thinking about the ugly Fox and Falcon shafts. Frog UJs seems good for the Falcon but no, they are not. The wheel axle is too long. But if I disassemble the Frog UJs and use a normal short axle can it works? The Frog and Falcon half shafts are the same length? And what about the Fox? Somebody knows the length of the Fox half shafts? Can something be similar? Max
