  1. For sale: original Tamiya 58085 Avante 2001 - Rare and sought-after Tamiya radio-controlled off-road racing buggy. Unrestored condition - body shell is not mint and has some minor damage Vintage contemporary hi-cap hop-up shocks. Original-spec Tamiya black-can Sport Tuned motor. Full set of four very-rare original white Cam-Lock wheels in very good condition (not painted yellow ones!) New re-re Avante cam-lock wheel centres. Original-spec spike tyres in good condition. Custom FRP front suspension damper stay. Also supplied with a carbon-fibre aftermarket replacement option. Tiny cracks in lower gear cases - see photos. More photos available on request. Item is in Cambridge, UK. The Tamiya Avante 2001 shaft-driven 4-wheel-drive off-road racing buggy was released on 19th June 1990, featuring multilink wishbone suspension and a twin-deck FRP chassis . An evolution of the original Avante, this model utilised the lengthened chassis dimensions developed for the Egress. The original Avante bodyshell was redesigned to fit and protect the rear suspension arms. Perhaps the most beautiful of the Avante/Egress series, no vintage Tamiya buggy collection is complete without one! The only model in this series not re-released. With the others (Avante/Egress/Avante Black Special) having been through repeated re-releases, and this model never re-released so far, it is looking increasingly likely there will never be a re-release (hence two recent completed ebay sales for NIB kits at ~£650 and ~£1250). Sales price excludes delivery and local customs/tax/fees. The item is sold as seen and not refundable - I have been very honest and open about details of the condition. The photographs are of the actual item and are to be considered part of the description. Apologies to anyone watching/ bidding recently on eBay - the car is still for sale as auction won by overseas bidder despite the details specifying UK only. Sorry I would prefer to dispatch to the UK, due to frequent problems with overseas deliveries being severely delayed, getting damaged or going missing and as a private seller not a business I cannot afford to reimburse a disappointed buyer.
  2. Hi everyone. My first post. I have a Vanquish which I’d love to restore as a runner. I’ve stripped it down completely and the only parts broken (unfortunately) are: - Rear section - final two screw holes - of the main chassis tub missing (broken off). - missing rear bumper (for above reason probably) - front bumper is toast - link pins bent - shell and wing broken and cracked I think my only two options are : 1. Rebuild it with out the bumpers (no point IMHO), with TBG body and MCI decals 2. Go Carbon, maybe even go Page 28 upgrade in the manual. 😃. But I don’t have the HiCaps ☹️. Anyone want to give a view on this one? Thanks! Paul.
  3. I have a brand new never run set of Egress tyres on my Vanquish that I want a set of Pin Spikes aka original. they came on the Vanquish & Supershot and were a hop up (still are) UK based anyone interested in a swap OR do you have a set of Pin Spikes in decent order not needed?
  4. The last parts I need for my Vanquish restore are:- 2 Nr battery tray catches, 2Nr BP2 with screws BC2 & 1 Nr BL7 the screw that lets the front wheel carrier turn in the front upright. I suspect (hope) these parts may be common to the Avante or Egress. On the Vanquish they come from 3 separate screw bags and are like rocking horse poo with a cost you can expect from such hard to find parts. Even if someone has the relevant part numbers (parts/screw bag) from Avante that I can source for a lot less then please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi all, Have a sort out and have got a bundle of old wheels and tires to get rid of. None of the fitted tires are glued to the wheels. A Job lot consisting of: 1 Set vintage Vanquish wheels with oval blocks on the back and pin spikes on the front. The tires are seriously badly cracked, don't think they would survive removal, but I have run them on a super sabre without a problem, so someone might get some life from them before they disintegrate. There still plenty of tread left on the tires. Please note that the rear wheels are identical, so when fitted, the teardrop pattern in the wheel faces the opposite direction to the front. 2 complete sets of vintage hotshot wheels. One set plated and one not. The gold plating has flaked in the usual manner from the plated wheels as they have been used. 4 used rear oval block tires and 2 used fronts. Tires are in good condition apart from having hardened with age. Front tires have around 40-50% tread. 1 complete set of DT-02 wheels and tires. Wheels are good condition, I bought them used and never used them myself, so passing them on. Back tires are worn, but front are in very good condition. No splits or cracks as far as I can see. 1 pair of Kyosho ? 2.2" rims fitted with Schumacher mini spikes. I'll need £5 for postage within the UK (2nd class signed for), so make me an offer. UK buyers only please, and if you are not comfortable with paying via paypal gift then please tack on a bit more to the offer to cover the paypal fees. Edit 02-03-2019 - Removed thundershot wheels now passed on.
  6. Anyone got a link to the Vanquish manual that makes it readable? The one on here says you need to be a subscriber to make it a better resolution. I had a copy downloaded earlier in the year and cant find it. It was readable. I also got a Boomerang, and most of the other cars I have as well so can keep manuals good as put them in a folder. Thanks in advance.
  7. Found a vintage NIP G parts tree just now. Drop me a PM with offer if interested.
  8. Was digging through my old decal bag today and found these: Genuine Tamiya Vanquish Decals, leftovers from when I built mine nearly 30 years ago. Thought they might help someone complete a resto Open to offers.
  9. I'm on the search for a nib Vanquish to complete my avante family. Please let me know if you have one to part with. Cheers, Odd-Arne
  10. Hello, I recently acquired my first vintage Tamiya Vanquish. I am missing the driver inside the cockpit. If anyone has one for sale, please let me know. The shipping will be to Rancho Cucamonga, California USA 91739. I am paypal ready. thank you very much
  11. I am not going to restore all of these right now so i was wondering if anyone was interested in them. I have a link to the pics of the collection i have, PM me for that. Or if you want detailed pics of anything. Some are missing a few parts some none at all. If you are interested I can go through the whole rc with pics so you know what you are getting. I also have a fishing box with servos, gears, shafts....alll sorts of things. I would need help figuring out what it all is but i'm willing to take pics and go from there. king cab astute avante vanquish the fox and there are a few more.
  12. As per title, used is ok for me. They are the lower rear damper mounts, the brownished metal plates L shaped where there are the ball joints. I'm sure Tamiya Era has them. Cheers Max
  13. Hey, I have just restored my Tamiya Vanquish and would like to share. Vanquish is a really nice rc car. But the driver do not fit the cockpit so I remade one. I am still using the old Am 27MHz controller with Tamiya CPR unit. But what would be the difference if the electric parts were upgraded to 2.4G? Also could you suggest any hop-up for this master piece?
  14. I'm looking to buy Vanquish G parts tree and also the E parts (bumpers). Also looking for Avante/Egress/Vajra/Vanquish H parts (gears). Maybe also the front propeller joint. Please let me know what you have.
