I'm looking for a Marui Shogun, ideally in the best possible conditions that I can afford, to showcase as a shelf queen. At the same time, I happen to have a Marui Samurai and a Team Associated RC10 Edinger Gold Pan that I could (reluctantely) let go of. I know that chances are slim, but maybe there's somebody there in the opposite situation! Anybody looking for an R10 or Samurai and willing to let go of their Shogun? I don't really know how it works here, if the trades/swaps and sales are based on trust, reputation, paypal or what (first time I venture in this part of the forum9), but I had a look through the topics and trades history and it seems that everybody is happy with it! So why not trying, before I venture on Ebay for something I don't really wanna sell anyway. I know it obviously depends on the condition of the items, but I thought there would be good chances of such buggys having more or less rhe same value (please correct me if I'm wrong!). Here's a little summary of what I've got to trade, then of course in case of interest I will provide detailed descriptions and more pictures as well as answering any questions one may have. The 1986 Samurai is a shelf queen, all original, in good conditions especially regarding the aesthetics. Comes with period correct electronics and remote, bench tested and still fully working. In its many years of life t's been used though, so it's far from perfection but still absolutely gorgeous. The RC10 is a 1984 Edinger edition and comes with original box, manual, diff grease, some spares, and correct Futaba vintage electronics with respective booklets. Original body shell and wheels/tires are missing and have been substituted respectively with a Dahms body shell and HPI wheels/tires, both vintage (late '80s I think) and with their mini-booklet and spare hub adaptors. It's a runner and is also no stranger to scuffs and marks, that being said it's in overall very good conditions. It screams for some tlc: stripping, cleaning, ballf diff tuning, shocks refilling and all that, amyway all the wealth is there for a proper restoration (which was actually my intention when I bought it in the first place). Here's the Samurai and the RC10 So yeah if anybody is interested let me know, and maybe with some patience and proper communication we'll sort something out! One little final twist: I am based in Canada which will not make things easier, though I'm sure it's still doable . Cheers!
Hello I am selling the power combo that came with a used RC I recently bought. Price is 25€ for each or 45€ for both. Shipping in Europe is included in the process. I am also open to offers. If you have any questions, just let me know. The ESC is a Yuki model Samurai SL 45A. The esc is sensorless and it is also marketed as waterproof, even though I don't think it really is. Definetely looks water resistant. This was installed in a Tamiya XV-01, that is why the wires are extended. Unfortunately the previous owner used extensions with wider terminals than what the motor has so those would have to be removed. I would actually suggest to remove the extensions altogether since the connection was not the best. That said, there is sufficient length of wire for a lot of applications. The ESC is programmable via card, but I do not have it. Even though the ESC looks like a hobbywing rebrand it people in rc forums say that it is not compatible with the hobbywing program card. Even though I do have one, I am not willing to risk damaging it by trying it. The ESC is outfitted with a deans plug and also has a fan integrated. The motor is CS rookie rocket 3100kv, sensorless, 2 pole brushless motor. It is a rather mild motor and good replacement if you want to have a mild brushless setup for a 1:10 touring or rally car. The motor has a few dings but works fine. As you can see it really looks like some hobby-wing rebrand and I am pretty sure it is.
So straight out of the old garage comes the relics. I LOVED the Samurai when I was a kid but I think it's all too far gone. The Big Bear however could be quite easily salvaged, and I must admit the body looks nice. It was actually a mates when I was a kid and I ended up with it. Man, 30 years... Also have the Team Associated RC10 with graphite upgraded chassis which is in far better condition. Memories... (And yep, the Big Bear front tire was glued on the wrong, hence why I didn't build it!)
