  1. The vintage thunder shot I got of ebay arrived today. It came with a msc, silver can and vintage futuba radio gear and servos it also has some spares and the original manual. The body is very untidy I doubt I can do much with it. The msc didn't work and the futuba tx doesn't work but the servos are good so I'm keeping them. I replaced the silver can with a speed passion 10.5 t and a tble02 esc. So far I've rebuilt the shocks and gearboxes. I replaced all The stupid plastic bushes with bearings. The chasis tub is broken where the front gearbox screws on so I've ordered a replacement from Tony. I need that before I can rebuild the rest. I'll post up some pics soon. I didn't take many anyway.
  2. Hi all. I'm after a vintage Thunder Shot motor mount. Needs to be a darker coloured one. Preferably new or minimal wear. Please let me know if you can help. Can swap for a new stainless one if that helps. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi all, I'm after a new or nearly new Thunder Shot motor mount. The part number is 4305219. I purchased a new one but it's shiny silver rather than the darker colour that they used to be and it's the darker colour I'm after. Happy to swap my new if you're interested. Please let me know if you can help. Typical I missed out on one on eBay a couple of weeks ago.
  4. Hi all, I'm after screw bag A part number 9465266 for my Thunder Dragon restoration. Turns out I needed a lot more parts for my project than I initially thought Amount I've spent I should have bought a complete one. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks in advance.

  8. Hi all, I'm after a new vintage Thunder shot screw pin bag. Please could you let me know if this is something you can help with? The part number is 9405381. Thanks in advance
  9. Hi all. I've just acquired some vintage thunder shot parts and they are in fantastic condition. I would like to make a shelf queen but upgrade the plastic 'bearings' to full ball bearings. The part number for the set is 50241 and was for the hotshot. Please could you let me know if you have anything that can help or point me in the direction to where I might be able to find a set. I'm happy to hunt down individual bearings but I don't the the part numbers or specs on them so if this is something you can provide instead I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.
  10. So I'm sitting here a bit bored at Taipei airport waiting for my flight home wondering idly about a new design project. I've noticed that top end 4WD racers have caster angle built into the c hubs to add to the kick up at the front of the buggy. Added to this as I've been filling my evenings this week whilst here on business, I found an article on Jamie Booths Manta Ray from 1991 and he says one of the biggest things he did was get some extra caster added to the custom c hubs he had made. I have a Thunder Dragon and a Terra Conqueror DF01 now, and I think fairly easily I could do caster c-hubs for them via Shapeways. I just have no idea how much to add. My DT03 has 25 deg, but I haven't seen that much on 4WD for some reason. Anyone got any ideas? Looks like both my buggies have something around 10 deg kick up, so should I be trying to add 5 deg? 10 deg? 15 deg? All help, hand waving, wild speculation greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  11. Hi all. I've managed to acquire an original shell in very good condition and would like to do box art on my Thunder Dragon but struggling to find the chassis cover. The part number is 1835050. I'm after vintage new preferably or used but unpainted. Please let me know if you can help. Edit: Just ordered one from modelsport. Hopefully they can order in and fulfil.
  12. I've just been been upgrading a few parts on my TD and noticed that I've managed to crack my A3 Part at some point. I've only just purchased a new tree of A parts (which is the cracked A3) and want to avoid buying the whole lot again. Does anyone have just a new A3 Part spare they would be willing to part with please? Happy to pay something for it. Thanks in advance
  13. Been getting back into the RC hobby thanks to kids, the best car in the house being a Kyosho RB6. Back in the day I had a few different cars but always had a real soft spot for my Thunder Shot, which seemed to get the most use so out of nostalgia got a 'spares and repairs' one on Ebay to bring back to life. As it happened, aside from a broken A5 (which I remember happening to me way back) it was complete and everything worked. It's clearly bog-standard spec and I'd like to rebuild/restore it to get it running as sweet as possible and be more fun than standard. I'm going to get full ball bearings (no brainer) I'm toying with going brushless but want it to be a usable, drivable car and not something bonkers that pulverises itself. Was thinking getting a Tamiya super stock motor (but which one?) to be vintage sympathetic but if there's a brushless option that would suit I'm all ears. Regardless of brushed-v-brushless what ESCs would by a good option? Any other must-do mods you guys can recommend?
