Mad Racer's Tamiya 4WD Collection

Post by Mad Racer »

These are some pics of my Tamiya 4WD's. Boomerang and Hot Shot are both runners. The Hot Shot is still being developed. I am in the process of makings a better steering system. My Super Shot runner is my next project. Most of my cars feature some sort of modifications. I have also included a photo of my restored Turbo Optima.

:shock: How did you get that You-G Aero print on those new shool tamiya wheels???

Do you happen to know who made the star wheels on your boomerang? I have the same set (at least It hink they are) but have had them for years and don't recall the brand.

for the magic in posting pics: jus hit the 'quote' button under Jason's post and you'll see the code

The star rims were sold in Australia under the name of OZ Charge by Barry Putte. I think they were made by CML if i rememmber. I bought them many yrs ago. I have a Bright yellow set on my MID as well.

Ahh yes i love my YOU-G Areo rims too.
Got the stickers made by a local sticker shop here. Got 8 done and are on their data base in case i want more. They also did some PB racing stickers for me and Maxiuma has them now as posted else where here.

Hope this helps you Mr Ed.
