Year/model: 1988, Avante

Motor: Stock Technigold

Come across this one how long, two or three years ago? And since then I haven't found my way to the missing bits to make it run (both rear dogbones, and one of the drive cups). By now I'm pretty much losing hopes. What else-the Polycarbonate body of this one have seen better days. If this wasn't Tamiya's top-of-the-line buggy back in the day I don't think I would have got it. Think I'd rather have a Bullhead. Can't always have what you want, can you :D

What parts are you chasing . Don't give up.

Rear dog bones.

Shocks all round

Diff cups

Might be able to help you with the above. I have re re Avante parts left over as I updated my shocks all round to Hi caps and diffs to ball diffs.

Hi Mark, How have you been? Thanks for writing. I doubt I can afford the luxury of Avante shocks for a car like this one. Actually the other parts missing are much more neccesary. You can see the specifics on this here thread: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/80491-1988-avante-bits-fsft-wtd/

Have a good Sunday! :)

This is my Avante 2001, under restoring works:

AV%202001%20035_zpssnzn6pk6.jpg

AV%202001%20030_zps5b3jhcb0.jpg

I only miss some minor parts to complete the model.

A new body is ready to be trimmed and painted.

Are those hi-caps re-done in champagne gold (or just weird lighting)?  If so, that's amazing!

At least you've got the white original wheels. Looking for those now for a couple of years already but still not giving up :rolleyes:
