Sorry, I have struck out. I can find the individual 850s but not the flanged version. Drop them an email and hopefully they will be able to help.

See thread 850 flanged bearings for link

 Parts for my TL-01 restoration project. Not sure if I'll actually replace the existing chassis with the new chassis parts, but figured, you can never have too many spares/replacement parts ;)

Got some 3mm x 25mm Soc Caps for the top force, thinking I could cut them to length required. Not realising they would be set bolts, not set screws. So need to order 3mm x 10mm's now 🙂

This sent from a friend. 

Was going into my M04 but I don't think it'll look right🤔

Noice! That would look great in a M-03.

I have one of those M Acto motors in a M03, you can barely see it, just the endbell sticks out. Its a tiny can.

I think the short can produced less torque which made the 2wd cars easier to drive. I'd love to try one.

Postie delivered this today, been looking for a good one for a while. The one I wanted as a kid and didn’t get, this is NIB and never used. I am very happy 😀. Just looking for a good condition Tamiya 1989 catalogue now, if anyone knows of one going.

This just showed up. Very happy to have one, still wrapped in plastic. Was this anyone here?

Also, just after I learned that the GT1 911 is coming back so stablemates hopefully...

I just found one of those recently as well. There is an M01 mini in the attic that will get this.

My 2CV rally has arrived with a couple of batteries. Received these cute little plate stickers as a freebie from... well, you’d never guess where....

My Porsche Cayenne arrived from Tamico as well. I had a lanyard as I needed one?? Also a Rally interior. Not sure what Im going to use it for. Might put it in the cayenne. Will need to cut some window masks as it uses stickers on an all black shell

My Grasshopper finally turned up after waiting for about 3 weeks. I bought it from Euro Car Parts during one of their sales for £46 delivered :)

The original Grasshopper was my first Tamiya, I remember bringing it home on the train. Will always have a place in my heart.

The postman brought me...... my accidental TT02 purchase! 

2019-12-15_09-50-21

I am over the moon with this as it came with a vast amount of spares. Extra diffs, two sets of wheels, spare ESC, 3 batteries, the original friction shocks, plus loads more. With everything i was planning to switch to do a type s conversion with spare reversible suspension arms, uprights and metal driveshafts i has leftover from my TA06, plus these spares i worked out that for an extra 15 bucks at rcmart for another tub and a couple of parts trees i can build a whole basic spec TT02 as well! Uses up loads of my spares (which i like to do if possible) and selling it should cover a good chunk of the cost of the Type S conversion. Happy days!
