  1. Hi there, I decided to build a replica of my VW bus, a 1973 lifted type2 bay window (with a water cooled v6 engine ) into a RC model. I purchased a reedition 2010 Sand scorcher and started the build couple month ago, I thought it would be all about the details, trying to replicate all the work that went into my original bus into a 1/10 scale version, using a mix of old models parts, 3D printed parts and so on... This is where things started to be a little more tricky than I thought, the only body I could find online of a type 2 bus 1/10 (the one with the square front, not with the V front) is an ABS Body and a Lexan body found on eBay that are basically vacuum molded and lack a lot of details as a result . Second huge detail is the wheel spacing, the bus front to back wheel distance Of the bus body is a lot smaller than the sand scorcher wheel distance... this is when I decided to cut the bottom plate and reduce the overall size of my Sand scorcher body :/ In this thread i’ll Show you all the steps of my work in progress, this is far from being done but i’m Planning on posting regular updates of my built . Hopefully this will be a good one . Here are some pictures of my (real) Bus , you can find more here http://www.instagram.com/pacifist_northwest . Let’s see how close I can get wish me luck.
  2. Over a year ago I decided to start a Street Scorcher project after finishing a Sand Scorcher build. One night I popped two Street Rover rear wheels under a Sand Scorcher body and really liked the look. I posted in the What Have You Done Today forum a little, but never started a build thread. So, here I am doing just that. I settled on the M03 chassis for the build. I've done a bit over the last year - created a custom mid section for the M03 to stretch it to a 250mm wheelbase designed a mag-mounting system for the body designed custom front wheels and rear hub caps worked on a roof scoop modified my own Shapeways-printed Sand Scorcher engine for the M03 chassis. I'll go through the build step-by-step properly, but for today this was the look that got me motivated to start this build: S2
  3. I've got a few new old stock brass 20t original pinions for SRB's Champ etc £7 each inc P+P in UK PP gift
  4. I've started work on an M03-based Sand Scorcher street-rod. I designed a simple M03 extension to get the wheelbase up to 248mm for my project. (Yes - I know the Scorcher is 250mm, but this is what I needed for the body to fit right) I'm gonna link below to an Instagram post where I created a short video of the new extension vs. the stock one and how it fits. Part is in my Shapeways shop... https://www.shapeways.com/product/FNJSEXCHZ/tamiya-m03-extension-for-the-sand-scorcher-body?optionId=61674003
  5. Been working on some mods for my Sand Scorcher build. Designs are FreeCAD. Prints are Shapeways. I wanted to take a try at my own flat four engine. Though it isn't a 100% accurate real-world model - I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I'm also not too fond of the stock side-view mirrors, so I made a new set... Both designs are up in my Shapeways shop for those that have asked. Thanks for looking!
  6. Hello TC'ers, See my traderoom for vintage tamiya stuff I'm clearing out. Most is mint or NIP I have more parts to photo and list. Sand Rover Monster Beetle Toyota Hilux - SOLD CRP parts RC Lohas parts - SOLD +more http://www.tamiyaclub.com/trades.asp?id=13490
  7. SOLD Had this for years now and have never done it any good, so it's time I pass it on to someone that may do it some good rather than it hiding and gathering dust. I don't have great pictures at the moment but I'll get some at the weekend if anyone wants. It's in parts at the moment. Here are a few pictures to give a general idea of condition. Have a look in the photobucket album for more pictures, note though that the pictures of it as together are older pictures, but nothing has changed since other than it being taken apart! - The wheels and tyres on the scorcher are vintage items new from box (I bought these years before re-re's began.) - No Electronics are included - Any SRB spares I have will be included SOLD Matt Photobucket Folder http://s14.photobucket.com/user/Madmat4x4/library/Sand%20Scorcher
  8. Hi All, I'm after a Sand Scorcher to use as a an occasional runner, I don't need any electrics, but would consider them if at the right price, also not too worried about originality, but it must look like a Scorcher I'm in the UK, let me know what you've got. Andy Found one
  9. Hello I keep on upgrading my sand scorcher, you can see here (there are so many news than I can't post because I'm living out of home for some months but in two weeks I'll be back) Now I'm thinking about get some custom alloy rims, I dont know if I'll get the whole rim or only the cover (I think that probably only cover because it will be cheaper and easier) and I want to ask if somebody has planes or 3D models or something so I can take it to the place I'm going to book them. Thanks in advance

  11. Hello! I'm new in this forum, I just have written to ask something about a new motor for my vintage Sand Scorcher, but I think now it's time to show you the restoration work in the Scorcher. Now the work is "finished" (it's never finished because I allways want to get new things and spare parts) so I will post here the complete work. Hope you like it! And sorry if there are some mistakes in my English because I'm Spanish and it isn't my mother language. First of all, a little of history: my father bought this car app. 30 years ago, when he was more or less the same age as me right now (20). He used the SS a lot it that time, and then he lend it to my uncle and he used even more. After some years, since I was a child, I've always seen it in a closet and I remember that we ran it two or three times in 10 years, maybe the last one 7 years ago. I've allways been interested in cars, and I collect 1:18 model cars and wanted to buy a new RC car but then I thought "why not try to fix the old one?" I didn't know the real name of the model... I started investigating and asking in another forum, contact with a guy in my city and started with it... I wanted to make it able to play and I have installed some more modern parts. So it's all, now I leave you with all the photos. This was the initial state of the SS (there was a dust layer but I cleaned it before taking photos) After that, I started dissasembling and cleaning some parts Here you can see the amount of dirt there was -------------------------------------------------------------- Dissasembling half of the back axle, some pictures to compare before/after Before: After:
  12. I'm looking for these parts in used condition: - Ranger front body post - rear cage - antenna + pin - lower arm left - upright left - 2 front springs (for the front suspension) - 2 cam locks - transparent motor + gear cover (A-Parts) Please send a PM if you can help. Many thanks in advance!
  13. Does anyone on TC still sell these? Found this on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-Sand-Scorcher-Buggy-Champ-Natural-Anodised-Chassis-SRB-/321018056916?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item4abe2ad0d4 Seems like a decent bargain, but would like to patronize a TC member if possible -Steve
