Re: NIB Bosscat Works

I have a decent Bosscat shelf-queen done in box art. The alloy bits are red, not purple, so I think it is a lesser spec: "Competition" versus "Works" perhaps. I had every intention of running it, but the body appears to have been professionally done (or at least by someone with 1...

Re: Composite Craft TRX-1

With the direction they have taken since, it is easy to forget that Traxxas had a few legitimate competition cars and trucks back in the day. There were a couple of sponsored Traxxas guys at the local track. They were never going to beat Dunbar and his Losi XX/XXT :lol: , but they were competitive w...

Re: So You're Into RC Cars. WTF Else Do You Do?

I am surprised this thread didn't take off. Seems like a good topic. I have RC cars of course ( 4 buggies and 1 rock crawler), RC planes, an RC sailboat, a 63 Comet, a Miata, a drag race Pinto, a GSXR, a bunch of things that go BANG!, a road bike, and some hiking boots. As soon as I click "subm...

'Wow, of course people were free to do what ever they wanted to... Also to cheapen it regular electrolytic caps have been used rather than tantalum.'

I guess he can see some differences in the components used compared to his.

Re: The problem with vintage Tamiya...

a bit of fun to drive maybe and just beautiful models to see in action . I think this is it exactly, but then I remember the Falcon :lol: There is a Tamiya documentary out there somewhere. It focuses entirely on scale models, not RC. Tamiya blew everyone away with the scale stuff right from the beg...

Re: NIB TRX-1....Build it?

I am really looking forward to seeing this one. I had a Bullet, but I am not that familiar with the Traxxas racers. A couple of guys I used to race with (aka lose to...) BITD were sent free Traxxas kits. They would run them for a bit and do well, but always switched back to Losi or Associated soon a...

Re: Gun Room remodel

I just noticed you are in Royal Oak Michigan. 2 quick unrelated points:

It is great to see that the 2nd Amendment is still intact up there. Gov. Whitmer is not a fan of it.

I am a Ford man myself, but Royal Oaks Super Duty Catalinas are about as cool as it gets!

Re: So what did you get in the post today ???

I got another load of spare parts for the Schumacher Cougar re-re I still don't have. :lol: Apart from the front end I could build one from the mountain of Top Cat/Cougar spares I have stockpiled. I don't see Schumacher going the Tamiya route and re-releasing their stuff over and over again. I am ho...

Re: Vintage, Vintage, Vintage... I'm getting tired of it!

It's a bit like "Toy Grade Vs Hobby Grade" they are all TOYS! :lol: Good point! I confess to using those terms because most people understand them, and also because "toy grade" makes a good thinly veiled insult :lol: But yes, we are all just playing with toys. An adult playing w...

Re: Tamiya - 1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

The Porsche wheels take that kit up a notch! Very well chosen.

The dog doesn't seem to rate your painting skills too highly. He has a worried look when he sees you with the clear body in hand. :lol:
