  1. Hi mates, here's another long term project. Finally today a re-release Egress is arrived at my home. This model is a mandatory element to start this project that I want to complete, the TRF Jamie Booth's Replica Egress. This is the model. It is a shelf queen new built that I bought from a mate here on the club. The model is in perfect condition (thanks mate). I already own the Egress. Infact this is my 3th one, the first is a restored vintage, the second is my modified runner and now this one. This is the first re-release that I see in real life. What can I say about this model? Tamiya made a good job on many parts of this model in front of the vintage model. For example the quality of the carbon fiber of the chassis is better compared with the original model. The plates are shiny, there's the post for the Avante 2001 driver, there are the holes for the Avante rear tower and wing mount at the rear end. The transmission quality seems better and the gold alloy uprights are a massive improvement at the front end. But (because there's always a "but") somewhere the quality decreased. The beautiful titanium screws are now replaced with poor black anodized iron screws. The steering bar is always the same, too wide and gives problems during the full compression of the front end. Avante 2001 had a better configuration. The adjustable turnbuckles are not so beautiful (the Top Force Evolution turnbuckles are better imho and are a direct fit to Egress) but the real ugly thing is the front shock absorbers configuration. I don't know why Tamiya decided to make this change but the result is very poor in my opinion. Poor because one of the best looking parts of the Egress were the front dampers so there's a great loss of aesthetics. The height of the front end is reduced as the damper movement. The front end almost doesn't touch to the ground. The ride height is reduced as you can see in the pictures. The new front tower doesn't resolve the strenght problems of the old one but adds a problem with the body nose and body lenght. So the question is: do I like this re-release Egress? The answer is no, I don't like it a lot for the characteristics described above. This is the reason why I will not regret to convert it with this great conversion kit that I bought last year. The kit is the number 8 of 16 existing in the whole world. I can already say that I will also make some custom job on this replica so it will be not a perfect copy of the other ones but it will be personalized. The first thing: This front tower have to go, sorry Jamie. I can't mount a simply reversed rear Astute shock tower on the Egress front end and I will never cut the nose of an Egress body, sorry again. I'll do a custom designed new shock tower. On contrary, I will keep the rear tower already present in the kit. Also these 3D printed rear hubs have to go. I'll mount the original Madcap ones or something better. The Replica kit is very well made. I will also use these used parts. I will not cut some new gearbox parts. Ok, that's all for the moment. As the 2WD Buggy Custom thread, also this one will need many time to go on but I'm sure you will be patient, or not? Max
  2. I currently have my eyes on the df03 dark impact and the db01 durga, now i understand that the durga is a much superior chassis, although i can’t just let go of the fact that the dark impact is that much better in the looks department (for my personal taste anyway) especially with the livery i’ve come up with for it. With some upgrades, would the dark impact stack up to the durga? would its high ground clearance be important to the performance in terms of bashing? Attached is the livery i mentioned if anyone is interested
  3. I have a brand new never run set of Egress tyres on my Vanquish that I want a set of Pin Spikes aka original. they came on the Vanquish & Supershot and were a hop up (still are) UK based anyone interested in a swap OR do you have a set of Pin Spikes in decent order not needed?
  4. The last parts I need for my Vanquish restore are:- 2 Nr battery tray catches, 2Nr BP2 with screws BC2 & 1 Nr BL7 the screw that lets the front wheel carrier turn in the front upright. I suspect (hope) these parts may be common to the Avante or Egress. On the Vanquish they come from 3 separate screw bags and are like rocking horse poo with a cost you can expect from such hard to find parts. Even if someone has the relevant part numbers (parts/screw bag) from Avante that I can source for a lot less then please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello everyone, I search a comparison about this two cars : Schum Cat XLS Masami vs Tam Egress. I search a vintage car to run on astrostuff and carpet. In the beginning I thunk the Egress is a good car not perfect like a Top Force but good enough for astro and carpet. It’s easy to find videos of an Egress built and videos of the Egress runs on-road or on a parking. But it’s difficult to find a video of a run of an Egress on real off-road track. It’s easier to find videos on real offroad track of a Cat XLS (especially with Masami) and in this videos the chassis seems so perfect. Can you give me your opinion about this 2 cars, please ? Thank you for your answer. I hope you understand me... my english it isn’t perfect, sorry
  6. EDIT: I decided to unite the restoring job of my Egress runner and my Avante 2001 shelf queen in the same thread because I often restore many parts of both models together. This is my Egress runner. Due the lack of money to spent onto my hobby probably will not buy the re re Egress but with all this "Egressmania" in the air I could not think about my two puppies. One Egress is perfectly restored to new built (it runs twice on tarmac), the other one has been for a long time one of my favourite runners. It was retired some time ago, replaced by a vintage Top Force Evo that has been replaced by a Dark Impact. Anyway this baby did stay in a box until a couple of weeks ago when I drop it out for a restore. I decided to restore it and also upgrade it so I started to spent the few money I can use for the hobby buying some Avante 2011 spare parts like the gold upright and other redesigned parts. As you can see the car is in a decent shape with the two tone body. Probably today will replace the PS-16 Metallic Blue with the PS-23 Gunmetal Grey + PS-12 Silver but anyway that's it. Rear wheel hubs had been removed for maintenance. Let me introduce you the car: this car has several modifications for the use on the track. The first modification are the springs. I tested different springs stiffness and these are my choose. Orange Losi springs at rear and Red shortened Losi springs at front. The front Dark Green/rear Red combo was not good. Too stiff. Another modification is the rear damper tower made of 2 mm carbon fiber plate... ... and front one made of the same material: As you can see the front shock tower has four mounting holes for more stiffness and to save gearbox mounts. You can also see a reinforcement plate on the left side. I forgot to do it in the other side. Will do it asap. End of part one. Max
  7. So I finished my Egress build last night and have a few questions. Firstly, I found the front shock caps very hard to tighten up fully, they got really stiff towards the last few threads, is this normal? Secondly, there is so much slop in the steering, it's unbelievable! It looks like it's mostly down to the kit supplied shonky servo saver. Will a Tamiya Hi-torque servo saver resolve this issue? Thanks
  8. Hi I've recently bought a NIB Egress 2013 and a NIB Dynatech 01R to give it that more period look, I'm just wondering what would be the right period Servo for this, ideally what was used in the catalogue image (would it be a Futaba). Any advice much appreciated.
  9. Looking to buy a complete 53038. Accepting to pay between 500 and 750 euros depending on location, condition and how complete the kit is. A kit without the carbon plates but everything else intact will still be very much of interest. Payment through paypal. /P
  10. Returning after a long absence from RC I’ve just purchased an Avante 2011 and Egress 2013 from Tower Hobbies here in the US. As a kid these were the two kits I dreamed of owning as I turned the pages of the Tamiya catalog. At the time, my after school job only allowed me the cash to get a Hornet. So now I have these these two kits, found this site and wondered if I could get some advice on motors, ESCs and servos that would suit these two cars? I have been doing a fair bit of research online - but there is just so much to choose from. I was looking at going for a Spektrum servo and receiver with AVC, and going with an ESC+motor combo from Hobbywing. Understandably, I’m trying to mix some nostalgia with the up to date Lipo batteries, brushless motor and so on. The cars will end up as weekend drivers - some moderate bashing fun. Although I wouldn’t mind if I could give a couple of my buddies with brushless RTR buggies from Arrma a run for their money. Lastly, if I documented the build, would anyone be interested in seeing the progress and pics from these two cars? Thanks in advance for any guidance you might offer.

  15. Hello everybody Been a guest on here many times, browsing really nice builds and also admiring the knowledge that the forum has on tamiya products. The members on here have some pretty iconic rc's and i do love some nostalgia. Tamiya was my 1st rc just like a lot of people on here and I really have a fondness for them. They just have that feel good factor and I applaud tamiya for that. I was also hooked and just loved modding and racing with friends. From my childhood days I remember catching 2 buses into town and just heading towards the modelshop. I wanted to see the fabled egress kit, alas they never had one in and the price was way out of my league and being a young lad the shop assistant was not taking me seriously lol. I waited for a while to get the cheapest price and it came before christmas from hong kong. Just opening the box and admiring the tamiya box art, am sure all you guys know that moment. I was always going to go overboard on spec as I just wanted to give it the best of what is available today as it is my favourite tamiya. Spec List: Custom all aluminium parts anodised black including items like the motor plates, shocks, all aluminium spacers, chassis posts and more. Hex head hardware, black nyloc nuts including flanged ones, black washers. Rubber sealed bearing kit, original had this. TRF Carbide diff balls, yeah racing carbide thrust balls. Tamiya Low friction 5mm adjuster rod ends. Tamiya TGX carbon propshaft. Lunsford Racing titanium turnbuckles all round. Robinson Racing steel pinions, 18t at the moment. Tekin RSgen2/8.5t sensored brushless combo. Xpert Rc Lee Martin servo. Core RC lipo. TLR white grease, black grease and shock oil, tamiya ceramic grease on gearbox gears. When the box turned up and some hop ups, didn't use the Tamiya titanium turnbuckles in the end.
  16. Hi all, I'm hoping that one of you guys will have a solution for me. I've fully restored my 1989 vintage Madcap 58082 and taken it out for a few runs now. It runs great, especially with the Hop-ups and the GT-Tuned motor, but I keep breaking the C4 part - Front C-Hub (not the steering arm, which is now upgraded to carbon reinforced) I know its 26 years old buggy and not up to todays quality standards, but its so annoying as this is the 2nd time now in a month (and sourcing new C4 parts is getting harder) I know newer models have alloy parts from GMP, Yeah Racing etc. Is there an alloy part that will fit my buggy Tamiya or otherwise?... or am I destined to spend £££ on 3D printing an alloy version. Photo attached Thanks Madcap74
  17. having a sort out too much stuff I am in Chertsey surrey 1st up is a New un built Egress rerelease kit open to reasonable offers next is a new un built trf801xt kit, the truggy version Also have a new in sealed box trf201 kit includes the body and the limited edition carbon battery holder unwanted expert built wild willy 2 with the 2.4ghz radio Please make a reasonable offer if you want anything stuff will end up on ebay if no interest
  18. I month back or so, i was playing with this idea to merge a Top Force body with the Egress one. So when the body's arrived from *****, it was time to play :-) Ready for paint. Ok, so i should have droped the red colour i think. Might fix that later. By the way, i will make a wing that also goes to this body. So if you ever have wondered about this your self, there you go :-) I have made at ton of mistakes with this body, so i guess if i made a new one it would have been so much better, maybe i should drop the decals, since it looks quite nice without, if i can say nice :-p . That said i don't think that is going to happen. I had fun making it, but it will just sitting beside my Egress on the self.
  19. I want ask the TC how durable the Tamiya Egress 2013 is? Right now, i have (had have) an Tamiya Desert Fielder. I mostly drive on grass, street, gravel and sometimes on forest walkways. Now, on my Desert Fielder the front gearbox is broken. After mostly every drive something is broken or damaged. I do not repair it again. What car can you recommend me? I think, the Tamiya Egress 2013 would be an good durable car? What do you think?
  20. So I'm wondering how have made the best gearsystem/boxes it don't necessary have to be Tamiya and you could choose a rear gearbox from Egress and the front one from Top Force (just an example). I got most experience with vintage buggy's so I'm thinking about the Egress, both front and rear) and the Top Force (front), what do you think? The criteria should be Design Durability Gear ratio If you know the gear ratio for the gear box you think is the best, please state this as well.
  21. I'm looking to buy Vanquish G parts tree and also the E parts (bumpers). Also looking for Avante/Egress/Vajra/Vanquish H parts (gears). Maybe also the front propeller joint. Please let me know what you have.
  22. Hi Just thought to share with you these vintage info.... ( sorry if this was posted before, but i did search and no such a post ) Very interesting how the prices are doubled 2-4 times now for these vintage products :
  23. Anybody has a spare battery clip lying around from an Avante 2001, Egress or Vajra? I have been searching for this thing for more than a month now without success. It is on the N-parts tree (#0115070). Many thanks, Dominique
  24. I am selling or trading my unfinished CC01 Wrangler which i bought in February this year but have come to the conclusion that the whole crawling/scaling deal is just not my thing. The chassis is completely built but the body is still unassembled and unpainted. Some smaller parts such as the headlamps and mirrors are painted in the boxart colour and are pre-assembled. Wheels/tires assembled but not glued. It has never driven except for the couple of circles in the living room to test the setup. Comes with all the bits and pieces in the kit including TEU-104BK ESC and the TLU-01 lighting unit and ofcourse the box. Also, it has the GPM ALU Rear damper support (gun metal colour) installed which i bought with the idea to replace the entire 4-link by the GPM ALU version over time. No servo or other electronics included. I can send pictures on demand but all in all, i believe the description speaks for itself. I am looking for 180 Euro excluding shipping costs or a trade with an Avante or Egress roller with or without some restoration work (but needs to be fully functional) or a functional (i mean with that, all bits in working order and glow engine included - no servo's or other electronics) Tamiya glow-engine car on-road or off-road. Let me know if you have any questions. Dominique Can be closed. Traded for an Avante 2001
