  1. So, I used to own a MKV GTI that I loved to death. It was the first car where I just enjoyed everything about it. I picked up this kit while I had the car, because I wanted to reproduce it as close as I possibly could, but I have since sold the car. Anyway, this car will sort of be a reminder of the good memories I had of the car. My old MKV GTI My TT-01E build progress Chassis as it sits right now. Hobbywing Justock XR10, Hobbywing Justock 17.5T, TT01 Aluminum drive shaft, Full ball bearings, Tamiya 28T pinion and 55T Spur, Savox 254MG Servo Suspension - upgraded shocks Painted the lightbucket of the headlights the way they're supposed to be like they are from factory. Painted the mirrors accordingly Progress on the body that will be attached with magnets. What's left? 1. Wheels, I bought some wheels that are as close to the stock 18" Hufeisen wheels as possible they're undergoing painting righ tnow. Ideally I'd like to have a replica of the 18" fifteen52 RML Snowflakes that you see in the picture of my old car, but someone would have to 3d print that for me. 2. See if I can possibly replicate the grille slats that I had on my car on the front. 3. Decals! Just the VW emblems and the windshield wipers.
  2. Hi Very rare tamiya kit NIB. Will consider selling this kit if i get the right prize. or trade in a Tamiya Astute in great condition. Please contact me per email. Ole.hundhammer@gmail.com Regards Ole Christian Hundhammer Norway
  3. Hello again friends and welcome to my most recent build. I was going to name this one "What Tamiya could have and should have" just because of my disappointment when this model was originally released. OK, so let's start. When Tamiya first released the Volkswagen Amarok, it was on the WT01 chassis, and it was meant to emulate this truck: In my opinion, Tamiya completely missed the mark when they released a 2wd WT01 version of this vehicle: It's not even the right color!
  4. When I'm not obsessing over vintage SRB stuff, I like to do some scratch building. I've been planning this lowrider bug for a while and I'm finally getting the build underway. You'll have to bare with me, as it will probably take a while to complete. It will take some time between work, other projects, family, waiting on 3d printed parts, etc... The concept is pretty straight forward- 70's style lowrider Bug with servo's acting as the "hydraulics". It will be built from a combination of stuff I have laying around the garage and 3d printed parts. Reference images: The body I'm using. It's a Kamtec split Beetle. You can see where I started scoring a line for a ragtop Ragtop cut in, recessed area for the roof rails added, and a header bow fabbed Dark grey material for the sunroof. I'll use this material a little in the interior too when I get around to it. Ragtop done I wanted to run wire wheel of course, but the standard Pegasus wheels are far to large for this body. Top row is the standard wheel, and the bottom row is the final size I was shooting for. Tires are just cut down airplane tires with a white wall drawn on them. Then I modeled a support ring/template and had them 3d printed glued the ring to the back of the wheel and started cutting away cut the centers of the wheels out here are all the pieces. left side- stock wheel, center rough cut out, machined smooth and sanded for primer/paint middle- original wheel, center cut out, ring added and spokes cut down right side- printed rings, ring glued to back of wheel new center ready to be glued into place. I'll paint the lips before these are permanently glued into place. I'm actually working on a 2nd version of this that screws together from the back. Might be handy in the future. and a pic of how it sits now. wheel size is MUCH better. 3d modeling everything to test how it all fits together and functions. The battery is as far back as it will go. The servos sit on top of a little 3d printed gearbox powered by a 380 motor. No need for a 540, it will be slow and easy going. Maybe with all the weight at the back I can get it to hop. It will still be fairly heavy at the front though with a hardbody, full interior, etc. I'm not far enough along with the chassis yet to test it out and make adjustments. Gearbox is very compact. It just uses a crown gear and pinion. The outputs are from a traxxas 1/16. They were machined down and ride inside flanged bearings with a large ID. This lets the gearbox be as narrow as possible so the links and shafts can be as long as possible and the suspension can have a lot of travel without binding. I wanted to keep the suspension independent instead of going with a solid axle. Solid would have been much easier, but it's not what I wanted. And part of the interior from an old Cox VW tether car. I'll use the seat and part of the floor. The floor is raised so it will let me run push-rods to the front for steering and the front suspension. And that's about it for now! I'll update more as I slowly make progress.
  5. This was my first kit in getting back into R/C. I bought a WT-01N Amarok Custom Lift, because I happen to love VW related vehicles. I didn't really know much about any chassis related things when I bought the kit only to find out that this was the "narrow" version of the WT-01 chassis which wouldn't suit what I had in mind for the truck. I went ahead and bought the corresponding "wider stance" related items I needed from Blackfoot 3 parts. Here are the list of things in the truck. 1. Hobbywing XERun Stock Spec v3.1 ESC 2. SkyRC Ares Pro 10.5T brushless motor 3. Blackfoot 3 control arms, drive shaft, etc. 4. Aluminum shock towers 5. Aluminum dampers 6. Tamiya 20T pinion The truck is now super fun to drive while being stable as well at speed.
