  1. 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.
  2. Hi all. I'm after a vintage Acoms IC AS-7 servo. Not that I'm fussy but it needs to be made in Hong Kong. Happy for it to be used, but needs to be in working order. Thanks in advance
  3. 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.
  4. So I'm going to start building my Baja Champ slowly over the next few weeks. Not much time, but I haven't built anything for a few years and this kit seems like a nice start. I've been collecting some radios over the last couple of years to have period correct gear for my cars. But I don't have anything from the 1998+2-4 years period. I'd like to get something that would have been put in a Tamiya buggy in that time frame. I'm guessing perhaps a Futaba,, but it's very hard to find a timeline of Futaba sets. What are your top tips? Preferably something I can get NIB for a decent price ;-)
  5. Hello everybody, I am giving away an old acoms 2 channel FM pistol transmitter. It comes with a 27mhz crystal and a plastic geared servo. The Transmitter has throttle and steering trims, reverse switches, steering dual rate, uses 8 AA batteries and is missing the antenna. It still works fine. You can get a screw-on antenna for a few €. The controller comes with an acoms plastic gear servo. Unfortunately I do not have a receiver anymore. I am willing to give those away as long as the "buyer" takes care of the shipping costs which should be 5-7€ max.

    Sudden Servo Stoppage

    Had my CR-01 out the other day, I have added a second servo to make it 4 Wheel steer, connecter via a Y lead to the 1 channel. Was driving fine then got into a bit of crawling on some rocks and the car just stayed locked in a turning circle. The wheels would not come back to neutral position. Even turning the wheel on my controller would not bring them back, there was no response. Turned the car off and then back on they reset themselves and it was driving again fine after that. Any Ideas as to what may have caused the problem??

  8. HI chaps (and ladies?) I have a few restoration projects on the go at the moment and have a few questions i would LOVE some answers too I am restoring an early 80's sand scorcher, a Wild Willy M38 and a bear hawk (basher). Now my question is about (he checks he is in the electronics forum!) Electronics..:HAHA! I have never bought a stand alone servo in my life (having only ever had two real RC cars before as a kid they came assembled by my dad and the electronics came in the Acoms box. I want a recommendation for a good reliable and cheap ESC. These are not going to be raced or run hard, More than likely shelf queens with the occasional run as i get more fun from the build (Odd aint I). and when i say cheap i mean circa €15-€20 would be nice. I also want a good reliable standard steering suitable servo, I have read LOADS of information and recommendations and they all scream for €50-€80 Savox, Spectrum or similar digital wizz bang servos suitable for 100kph racers. I want cheap reliable (branded) servos but i have no experience. I do know i would prefer metal geared IF possible. So recommend away please! Oh and i am in Germany so Available in Europe would be helpful.
  9. I just bought a micro servo for fun, maybe to turn a drivers head?, or to open the sunroof on the beetle, problem is that the maximum voltage the servo can take is 4.8volts, it got a bit hot after a couple of seconds plugged into the receiver when it must have been getting 6v, oops. The servo still works but I need a way to step down the voltage?, can I just use a couple of AA batteries?, and if so do I take the + and - wires to the batteries and leave the other wire in the receiver?, would this even work?.
