    Manta Ray in the US

    Hi I live in the UK and I'm looking to get a Manta Ray for my brother who lives in California, problem is, I can't find any retailers local to him. I really don't want to have to ship from here as the postage will be a lot. Can any of our US Tamiya fans help guide me to an online retailer (that actually sells Tamiya!) where I can buy this and get it posted out. He lives in Malibu so I guess anywhere in CA would be fine. Thanks in advance
  4. Hello, A buggy I bought to restore happens not only to have no oil in the shocks BUT no friction parts, so I need the guts that form the seals on the bottom of the main damperbodies as well as the caps for the top. I need two mini sets and 2 standard sets, as would be on any of the cars tagged. Fire Dragon, Terra Scorcher, Manta Ray. I doubt it matters but they are the more modern type with the base that can slid off if you pull up the spring and the screw to adjust the spring length rather than the clip in yellow parts. I know there are some small yellow rings and O rings in there normally. If anyone know of a part bag that has all I need in it can you post a link please? I am in UK. Thanks in advance, Andrew
  5. May be of interest to some on here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Collection-Of-RC-Cars-Manta-Ray-Stadium-Blitzer-Land-Cruiser/192494090930?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D0ad5a5a81f014e06a7a1dd77e31fdf87%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D202276584894%26itm%3D192494090930&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042
  6. I recently purchased a NIB re-re Boomerang from ebay, I was soooo excited, but alas, my payment was refunded with a message saying 'sorry, it has already been sold' So now, while my refund is 'pending' on paypal, I have had some time to think... I want a 4WD buggy, I always wanted a HotShot as a child, but, on reflection, I see there are a number of other options... So I turn to the infinite wisdom of the gestalt! I want something I can bash, so durable with good spares available, I want to be able to have different wheel options and I will be fitting brushless kit with a view to running 2s and 3s lipos. My options are: Hot Shot, Bigwig, Boomerang, Manta Ray and Dark Impact Is the Manta Ray any good? (the price seems quite cheap in comparison to the others). Is the Hot Shot worth the extra premium? Is the Bigwig as sturdy as it looks? Or... am I best off going for the boomerang as there seem to be more of them around, so parts would be readily available and cheaper? Or... should I go for the Dark Impact as it's newer and may handle the bashing better? So many questions... I hope you guys can help!
  7. Got some spares leftover from the vintage Blazing Star i bought which became my Terra Conqueror. I don't think i will have another DF01 so clearing out: Leftovers from plastic gearset upgrade. 1x ball diff casing, 2 x gear diff casing, remaining gearbox parts on sprue and original gearset. £2 plus £3 postage in UK Pair of original vintage CVAs. Manta Ray/Blazing star spec. Mint condition, no leaks. £10 posted. Original vintage Blazing Star prop shaft and outdrives. £3 posted. Top Force hop up steel prop shaft, no outdrives. £4 posted. Brand new front plastic shock tower on sprue with plastic hexes. £3 posted Robinson steel pinion 0.6 mod 17t. £7 posted. PM for paypal details. Should have added, will costs the same to post all of it together as separate so if you want the lot call it £20 posted.
  8. After spending a long time digging through threads, trying to find a comprehensive list of all the period Hop-Ups for the DF01/TA01 platform and its descendants, I realized there were none. So I decided to make my own. I used futureworks' list as a base and expanded it from there. It's still in progress, but its sorted by manufacturer, and I'm trying to get a link for an image of each hop up, preferably in original packaging for each item. I have used the exact terminology that Tamiya used for naming each Hop-Up. I hope this is helpful for people who want to make a "checklist" of sorts for their cars, or for others like me, who just wanted to see what was out there for this chassis.

  9. Hi all, I am in need of 2 lots of Thundershot Joint Cup set (50335). They need to be new or nearly new. If you have only 1 set, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi all, I'm after 2 pairs of joint diff cups. Part numbers are 2595040 (long gearbox joint) and 2595041 (short gearbox joint) for the thunder shot. They are the grey/black coloured ones, not the more recent polished ones. I'm after new or hardly used. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks in advance.
  11. Clearing out some of the DF01 spares I accrued when upgrading the mint Blazing Star I picked up into my Terra Conqueror Evo. Got the barely used CVAs on eBay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263332910023 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263332901741 As well as these I have another pair of each item, plastic DF01 shocks mounts, metal wheel hubs for the driveshafts, steering arms, MSC, plastic top wishbones, a DF01/TA01 bathtub chassis and a bunch of other screws and spares. Give me a shout if you want anything. Cheers!
  12. As title. I am aware of the Fibre-Lyte parts, thought I'd try my luck here first. The Press Parts Bag would be the ultimate, as I do need the wing stay and battery plates too (kinda). I'm after a fair few other DF01 parts too, converting a TA01 with FRP chassis to DF01. Cheers.
  13. Hello everyone. New user here. My son's sixth birthday is next month and he wanted an RC car. This sent me online to discover that the world of Tamiya is alive and well. Nostalgia fuelled, I hunted through my parents' attic and returned with my old Manta Ray. I built it with my dad about 25 years ago as a replacement for my Hot Shot (may she RIP). Anyway, I hope to use this thread to document the rejuvenation of my Manta Ray, so I can race my son's new Lunchbox. I am totally clueless as to how to do this, so expect lots of stupid questions. I have browsed the forums but was bamboozled by most of the jargon and acronyms. I look forward to friendly advice and tips from you experts, and hope that this thread might become a resource for other newbies who unearth cars their dad built for them many moons ago. So first report: Charged my 25yr old nicae batteries with my 25yr old charger and things are happening! Motor runs and steering (servo?) is trying to turn, but the wheels don't seem to want to. I'm guessing the steering rack just needs a strip down and grease. Got some new 3300mah NiMh batteries and a new charger today, so here's my first stupid question: The charger has amp settings and recommends the highest (4a) setting for my batteries. Just wanted to check that this is actually the best setting to use? Also, can/should I use my 25yr old charger on these batteries? (photo attached) Thanks!
  14. I'm feeling impulsive this morning and so I have relisted my Boomerang and Madcap NIB body sets at reduced prices and I'll also offer, for fellow TC members (make sure to tell me in your 'best offer'), to drop the price to $100 for either or $180 for both if you buy both ($100 accepted for first, $80 for second). Shipping included in the U.S. or at-cost 1st-class int'l post, and probably cheaper than quoted by ebay (will adjust down / refund excess). http://www.ebay.com/sch/waynethebrain/m.html Vintage Boomerang NIB Body Set (TCer price = $100, or $90 for 2) Vintage Madcap NIB Body Set (TCer price = $100, or $90 for 2) Vintage QD Manta Ray NIB Body Set (TCer price = $30) Vintage Saint Dragon Decals (TCer price = $25, or $20 with anything else)
  15. ** JUST SOLD THIS - GOT SNAPPED UP PRETTY QUICKLY ** Just listed on eBay for $95 obo shipped free priority within U.S. at-cost int'l. Have a look at the pics below. Feel free to make your best offer - let me know you are a TC member and I'll give you the best possible deal. Cheers! http://www.ebay.com/itm/331678239683 http://www.ebay.com/sch/waynethebrain/m.html

    Tamiya Top Force

    Hi guys Not been around in a while - hope everyone is doing great.... A couple years ago I took a stock vintage manta ray and turned it into a saloon car sort of thing, with a Subaru body and a brushless motor... Thing is with the body running to close to the ground and the track and wheel base reduced it didn’t handle so great.... No I would like to turn it back into a buggy.... Has anyone got some links and pointers for bits? I want to base it on the same chassis, i.e. a top force / manta ray kinda thing... I am looking for the full kit, alloy arms, drive shafts, carbon chassis parts etc etc etc etc - THE WHOLE LOT..... Apart from fleabay I am a bit lost as to where to start, erg. I cannot find a DF-01 yeah racing upgrade anywhere - I am not sure what parts are interchangeable etc etc etc... Any help / advice / comments are all greatly appreciated..... I don’t mind if something costs a few squid, but this is just a wee bit of fun to have a basher to knock around for fun, thanks so so much
  17. Hi, I'm looking for a used Manta Ray body and wing to use for a vintage meet coming up in September. Happy to take something needs to be repaired, but really one that has original colours and decals. I know I can get a repro and the RTR decals but I don't want to spend heaps on something that will just get trashed anyway and then put in the cupboard for another year to get trashed again. It will need to be posted to Australia so can't really afford to spend too much, let me know what you are willing to let yours go for. Nick
  18. A Manta Ray in good condition. disassembled completely and build up again from scratch as per manual. Body and Wing are ok to drive but have some cracks. Following options have been installed: - Full ball bearings - Steering servo Graupner - Top Force prop shaft - Top Force front swing shafts - Yeah Racing alu steering - Top Force wheels and tires Goes for any decent bid or will trade for hicap or Dynastorm dampers (full set) or TA04, Top Force or Avante 2001 related goodies. SOLD. This topic can be closed.
