David Jun's 2005 Race winning Tamiya TNX Replica build

Recommended Posts

Found the glow plug! Even better I found it in the UK.

I mentioned before that TamiyaUSA had lost the pictures when the updated the website. Found more pictures of the car on The Internet Archive site but its just the thumbnails that were archived. So frustrating as I would love some chassis close ups.

So the truck now looks like this

I still have a few things to sort and I am sure I would have more if I had better close up pictures.

Make the wing for the rear of the body

Cut out the air hole in the windscreen

Cut the body mounts down to size

Find some accurate race numbers and the Tamiya logo for the wing

I'm ok with the body washers size wise but they could be whiter (these are more a natural nylon colour) so will keep looking

Find another set of the MIP CVD's

Get someone in the USA who can help purchase the RX battery pack.

Almost there!

This is absolutely amazing. I don't like nitros that much but this build and the result is more than great.

Thanks to the help of @speedy_w_beans the RX battery pack I need will soon be on its way from the USA. Whilst the TNX may never run in real anger its nice to have the little bits to make the build stand out.

I just bought a pretty decent TNX5.2r but its a non runner , gave £70 for it, gonna get it running and use it as a runner .
I have plans to ditch the standard tamiya two shoe clutch and try and find a non tamiya 3 shoe that's compatible with the TNX 16t clutch bell .
