Drive pins for the wheels - replacement for the TL-01 that lost one a week or so ago

Gearbox shaft for the CW-01 which was missing when I got it

850 bearing for the CW-01, someone had replaced all the 1150s but left this one

Paint remover - hopefully enough to get the pumpkin body stripped

Still to come:

Paint for pumpkin & monster beetle

TA05IFS

TA03F

Gearbox housings for CW-01

Rollbar for pumpkin

Chrome & glass pieces for CW-01s

An impulse buy...I categorically do not need it yet as I have a few other builds ready to go but I just kept seeing stock disappearing everywhere and then when this one was reduced...well, I couldn't resist. As someone else on here wisely said "buy now, ask questions later" :lol:

Still factory sealed, couldn't resist having a little peak inside. Man, it looks NICE in there B)

That feeling you get when you’ve waited so long for parts to arrive you forget which projects they’re for! :lol:

So after a long think, from left to right I have:
3Racing Sakura FGX Parts to make a DT02 accommodate hex front wheels
Hardened outdrives to make my WR01 4WD again
DF02 bits and a new spur, because the thing is always broke (why don't I just sell it?!!)
Body spacing o-rings
M-Chassis universals to finish my TT01 3Racing M-chassis conversion
LEDs which I now realise have the wrong plug on, so time to do some soldering
TL01 universals also for the WR01 chassis (fitting narrow arms)
All the blue screws, turnbuckles and ball studs are for the TA02 project

I've also bought a hardened 22T Pinion. 

Why did I buy that?

Today is a good day. My first kit in 20 years. Aluminium prop shaft and ball bearings. Just waiting on the aluminium prop joints now. 

I did say I was waiting for a Plasma Edge 2, but, as things have transpired. I've decided to opt for the Neo Scorcher. Very happy indeed

This robbe firefox   tamiya bigwig clone for 25 euro, not sure what to do with it I am going to compare it with tamiya parts and look of parts fit, if not then I am going to paint the car and put on another bumper and then it is nice for on the shelf.

And a tamiya ta-03rs for 60 euro with a extra new rare spare toyota corolla 237mm wheelbase body,  the chassis is in real good condition so I going to rebuild this one and I am thinking making it a front motor chassis.

CRP #1715 - It's an adapter to use FAV/Hornet/Lunchbox/etc wheels on a car that uses a 12mm hex wheel. I'm hoping it will work to put FAV wheels/tires on my Ultima that should be here Friday. It will be nice to be able to run Tamiya stuff as well as the stock wheels. I'll give it a try this evening on another buggy.

TA03F:

4sL1tOQl.jpg

I notice the top mount on the rear uprights are both split, best place for aluminium upgrades ?

Stock parts not available until next monrh according to various retailers.

The original impreza shell is mashed, don't think they (or in fact any TA03F shells) are in production currently.

P.O has fitted new wheels and tyres which is a bonus.

A nice set of 53226 front hubs for TA01/02/FF01/2 cars picked up off eBay the other day. They look completely unused, which is a bonus!

That Impress shell was recently re-released with the Monte Carlo livery albeit on a TT02. So you may find an eBay seller has one separate from a kit.

As for upgrades... Good luck. Unfortunately many have been out of production for a while, so scouring eBay is your best bet. Gear cases are particularly hard to find (A parts and B parts), so be sure to look after them!
