Re: Tamiya pricing going through the roof today

well F1 is REALLY big in the rest of the world. racing F1 r/c is also just as big. you are getting a all hopped up chassis. even at that high level they are basically spec so the racing is tight and fun. Let me clarify: My point was not why buy a F1 - it was why buy a TRF F103 rather than one of th...

Re: Tamiya pricing going through the roof today

Re: ** Build of the Month Contest - June 2018 **

I see four votes on a simple car that came out of a 3D printer in 2018 - I think this is very disrespectful to the real builds. This is a vintage rc RACECAR forum not a show facility for 3D printers. :shock: A self-designed, vintage-inspired car for me totally has its place here. So does my non- ra...

Re: Yokomo Pavidis?

It's kind of like your Losi bodies from earlier this year in the end, then :mrgreen: Some serious NOS (or close) find of stuff that is totally uber-desirable :shock:

Re: My RC10 Restoration/Restomod

Nice collection of parts :) Gearboxes look good but aren't that meaningful on electric motors, really :wink: Gearboxes were designed to mitigate the fact that IC engines have no lo-end torque and only wake up at high revs. Electric motors is the other way around - too much torque at low rev (max tor...

Re: SHOWME RC10

They are also a very mild motor - they were entry-level "race" motors 30 years ago, by today's standard they pure entry-level.

If this motor is in pristine shape, I'll use this as a nice shelf adornment :wink:

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

Yes - all the numbers you see as "8.5" or "13.5" are brushless. This is a technology that is not compatible with your brushed Rebel speedo. The rebel is listed here http://www.teamtekin.com/archive.html instructions here https://www.rcdocuments.com/documents/Tekin_Rebel_Manual.pdf It can pass 140A (...

Re: Front bumper

there's the odd member making them here once in a while... otherwise, ebay for the older and discontinued rpm part is your best bet.
