So I have been trying really hard to gather parts for a TRX1 build and was able to track down some, plus others.
These are the more interesting finds. Still need motor plates and stuff like that.

Agreed. Gratuitous display of over-partage! :lol: PM me if you have too many 2630's!
Hope you're doin' something fun.

Wow! Nice looking haul. I'm searching for some of those myself.

I have found stuff in other countries. Need to put a lot of time in scouring Google maps to find hobby shops.
Though with the posts on ebay that I have seen lately, there is a lot of stuff still out there in hobby back rooms or storage from closed hobby shops.

Man do I know that feel...


This was 2 days ago but got a pile of used parts to start my Roadkill edition JRXT. This would have been a pristine early chassis if someone didn't drill and dremel it, oh well, price was good.

It seems Dremeled and drilled chassis are all the rage.

This was cut down to have the rpm worlds rear. I’m going to see if I can bring it back to around stock condition

I have this severely chopped up jrx2 chassis I got in a lot a few months that I shouldn't have bothered with as most of the stuff in it was trashed. I can only assume it was some ridiculous oval setup.

Also got a bunch of stuff from ST including a JRXT body I forgot to take a pic of.

A stream of deliveries over the last few days... Some elements for my printing ongoing projects arrived today (printer, post processing station, isopropylique acoohol and resin). This was expected with an accurate tracking...

But there was a package incoming from Australia as well, which I did not expected today:
Image

Initially contacted the seller for the hirobo parts : I was only missing dog bones for one of my 44B chassis. Luckily he had those. When he told me the price, I was hesitating as cost for shipment would be more than the parts. I asked him if by chance he had some Marui parts. And luckily he had a rear diff set for Samurai. I took all his remaining Samurai parts. And since the price was definitely not on a ebay fashion, that was a very good deal, and the Hirobo ZR-7 completed it. In short : I have 3 cars completed in this parcel :-)
I buy kits to build and ru(i)n them :-)

Should narrow the front too since that's all screwed up.

I'll think about it . All of the restoration threads here lead back to you. The front end doesn't seem that bad. There is a little delamination and the one mount needs to be repaired. I don't have access to the 3m panel bonding adhesive. I was going to try some epoxy and carbon fiber dust as a filler. I was considering re-lamination to rebuild the rear of the car.
