cheers, I suspect he was thinning a rather large collection from what I saw and wanted to see it go to people who would appreciate rather than get as much cash as possible. While I do have a value/tally on my collection, I think when I get old and have to start seriously start letting cars go, I'd prefer them to go to someone who might appreciate/look after rather than just the highest bidder.

That's awesome to hear. I have been on the receiving end of the same a couple of times. It really makes you feel appreciated when someone respects how much you love the hobby. It also feels good to be on the other end and gift something to a person you know will look after it and get some more life out of it ūüôā

Today after work I¬†pulled apart the M04 and found more glorious suprises ūüėĀ

I really got lucky with this purchase, not only was the price already dropped $25USD, I gave a cheaper offer that got accepted, and this chassis has more hop-ups than first anticipated:

50519 Short CVA 2 set

53163 Tuned Spring set

53348 M03 Ball Bearing Set

53301 TL01 Stainless Shaft Set

53141 Lightweight Kingpin Set

53389 M04 Aluminum Motor Heatsink

53390 M03/M04 Hollow Carbon shaft

53523 Aluminum Front Upright set

53569 Clamp type Aluminum wheel hub.

Thinking about using my M04M Alfa and making one good one of the two, as this chassis was intended for my weathered beetle body. I have another chassis parts set, and my Alfa has the majority of these hop ups, apart from the uprights, springs, clamps and kingpins, but the Alfa has the black sport tuned, quick release battery holder, stabiliser set, hard coated pinion etc. 

Looking forward to having a tinker with them both ūüėé

Again some parts for the Top Force. I don't think that I have ever spend so much money in such a short time for parts for just one car.

My usual suspects and a 5mm OD hose I'm going to try as a bump stop on my M38's rear suspension.  Best of all, everything is free because I used my Amazon points.  :lol:

 

UPDATE:  Hmmmmm.. apparently I was sleepy when I took the measurements on the factory hose because I measured the wrong hose.  :huh:  The correct OD is 6mm..  so ordered the 6mm one as well today on Amazon points.   Hope to have it tomorrow.. :ph34r:

 

UPDATE2:  Received the 6mm OD tube.. a whole 1.5 meters(?). I only needed 60mm.  :lol:    Anyway, installed on my M38’s rear suspension.  Perfect fit.

Some wheels for the Ryft, some dampers from eBay (from a TC member I think)

Long search for the original TA02 universals.

Found them in Japan. 

Now I only miss the rear diff parts for my TA02 Racing Special replica. But these are luckily reproduced with the TF evo :D

I was undecided if I’d build this or not but it doesn’t have blister packaging like I expected so build it is.

I think mine is a re-re.. so no status.  :lol:

Although in like-new condition, I bought mine used so don’t know much about the chassis.

Looks vintage . I'm sure there's a resistor fitted and vintage decals ? The dampers look vintage too :)
