Hornet Transmission noise
Kalameja posted a topic in Vintage Tamiya DiscussionSo my new Hornet is together and read for a run. However, the transmission foes not sound right. Something has to be rubbing. After inspecting it looks like to me that the "small bevel gears" are sliding up and down the their shafts and hitting the inside of the "differential spur gear". Everything test well but when you slap the motor on the transmission is definitely making a sound it shouldn't it does not have that characteristic Tamiya Hornet sound . I ordered all from eBay, is it possible I have the wrong gears? They look the same as my other hornet. Not it sure what's going on. Anyone experience to much play with the spur diff and bevel gears?

Replacement striker differential spur gear
taffer posted a topic in Vintage Tamiya DiscussionHi 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!
Brushless Motor & Buggy Champ
Jamlot posted a topic in General discussionsI recently picked up a TBLM-02S 10.5T brushless motor. I want to try putting it in my Buggy Champ but the instructions suggest a gear ratio of 9:1. Are there gears out there that give me this ratio and fit under the gear cover? If so, what's a good place to buy these type of gears? -- Jeff
