Some servo saver (no servo saver, more like steering posts) parts for my Kyosho DRX. The first of three as I snotted it into a van tyre at 80kph while scanning the road behind me for cars coming the other way. 🙄 Rookie error. Will wait for the other parts before commencing repairs.

A few bits and pieces arrived this week, all from TC members I've traded with over the years...

53151 Diffuser, 53098 TA02 suspension shafts, 53308 Servo Stays & 53326 TA03 Steering arm - all courtesy of @OCDin the US

53074 F1 Brake lamp & 53157 King Pins from @Tamiyabigstuff here in the UK

..and a little bag of bits from  @acprc for a FS12-LT engine I'm restoring as part of a TA01 Nitro conversion project.

Super helpful guys :-)

Congrats on the TA03 steering set, quite a rare hop up to lay your hands on. Don't do as I did and fit aluminium ball studs to it though, go with steel or brass. My aluminium ones sheared off at the base after a drifting accident and I was unable to remove the trapped threaded part :(

I would have made a lot more effort to save them nowadays!

Just about everything for a TFE clone. Including original stickers, wheels and tires. All this just to sit on a shelf.

I received a Customs charge notification today so I should have some nice blue bits from Japan on Monday - M chassis dampers and rear hubs.

Still waiting on a replacement M05 chassis from Tamico’s supplier so the build won’t progress until then.

2 months in the waiting (post is a little lagged getting to the tip of Africa) - been very eager to try out some Samix brass parts on my TRX4 Defender. Couple of other bits and pieces from Amain.

Postie has had a busy couple of days.

In no particular order

RIT dye (black), new wheels (white), servo horn, Hobbywing esc program card, bodyshell velcro tape, and tyre glue (+ non rc related stuff).

All that's needed now is a charity shop pan, and the new white wheels and the RIT dye will get acquainted.

Received a NIP TT01 chassis tub in the mail today; it's the last part I need to consume a bunch of spare parts and build a complete chassis.

Feeling a bit down as I can’t progress with either of my two current build while I wait on critical parts.

The arrival of these M05-RA hop-ups cheered me up today
