A Tami Mountaineer showed up today, with a complete body on its way in a few days. This completes the collection, of at least chassis, of the four 3-speeds. So, with this addition, I am declaring 2024 to the the year of the ladder frame. If it doesn't have one, I am not working on it. :D

Purdy Tami Mountaineer body showed up. Hope to have this thing doused in Easy Off in the next couple of days. Also got in a set of Blackfoot tires, which until last week, I did not realize, were the same as the 2nd gen 3speed (Bruiser / Mountaineer) tires, although a Blackfoot and a Bruiser are within my eyesight the entire time I am working all day. :?

Yep!! :D Tamiya, although fully aware that smaller 540 motors had the ability to trash multiple gears throughout the driveline of the 1st gen 3speeds, decided scr3w it, lets put a bigger, torquer, 750 in the 2nd gens! :mrgreen:

It was made by an individual person not a company. Don’t remember his name, but if you google Associated GT5 you can find more info. To my knowledge there wasn’t a whole bunch of chassis sets made and that was a while ago. It took me a while to find a like new one for the shelf. If like new isn’t a priority PM me I have a couple more in raced condition I’ll happily let go of.

My first Schumacher motor! I was close to getting a Schumacher Reedy motor but missed out. This nice Flash 2 is very welcome to join my collection though. It seems similar to the Yokomo Super Wing series.

Picked this up over the weekend, with thanks to my good buddy Rob (@caesar)...

- Couple of Kyosho motors.
- Couple of GM Purple Bull motors

- 3Racing MG Evo Mini chassis with a stack of bodies.

Looking forward to building up the MG Evo, as it's a bit more 'racy' than my usual Tamiya m-chassis runners. Got some nice upgrades with it, too. Have to go buy a spur gear for it today :(
