Re: Tamiya 58695 Wild One Blockhead Motors at SilverTriple's sauce :)

One curiosity: the uprights are fixed on the upright axle by a setting screw. (one note : I don't put grease on parts that are exposed to dirt as it tend to capture the dirt, so no grease here (if needed I'll spray some PTFE dry lube on the axle). Put a tiny bit of blue locktite on the settings scr...

The problem with vintage Tamiya...

So I have been eyeing a certain Tamiya re-release since about a year now, while also nervously observing the continued availability of Kyosho reissues (Tomahawk and Javelin mostly...don't need Optima Mids and there isn't a Lazer reissue yet) and their high prices. The Tamiya in question is nothing s...

Javelin rere build

Since I ordered a Javelin, which will be in the mail soon, I figured I'd already start the topic. :wink: Let me start with the part that started it all.

Re: Javelin rere build

So laying aside the front end for the moment, I continued with other tasks. First up was the assembly of the body: IMG_2592.jpg IMG_2593.jpg IMG_2594.jpg IMG_2595.jpg I really wish they had used tapping screws for the frame connections, as getting the screws to bite into the plastic was really hard....

Re: The Official "What is it?" Thread

#3 and #4: I'm tempted to say "very early 1980s or late 1970s Tamiya F1 or F2 car", but don't pin me on that.

The plug looks like 1980s Robbe/Futaba. IIRC, Robbe (like other European manufacturers) often renamed imported products sold under their own name.
