Tamiya Sand Scorcher.

  1. Had my first trip out on the beech at Alnmouth. What a blast. Worth waiting 40 years for. Better than I had hoped for. It was good on the grass but flipped over very easily on tight turns but on the sand it was fantastic. Skidded and slid like a real car. Love it.

  2. Made a small ramp out of sand

  4. Cool. Just crying out for a drivers head in it though.
    I found these in a box in my parents loft at the weekend. May have to do something with my hornet now.

  5. Still got the driver and exhaust to paint. Winter project me thinks.

  6. That looks fantastic.

    I just had to dig this out of a cupboard. I was given it as a non runner.

    Anyone know if they’re any good?

  7. fella on ebay sells the inner arches...
  8. Got some. Very good fit.
  9. That's a pretty good one if the traxxas stickers are from it, spares and service kits are available for them, you might be able to download a pdf of the manual for it online, did you get the little glow starter for starting the engine?
  10. Thanks!

    I think I did. Not really looked at it tbh. He gave it to my son and me when we bought a second hand battery one.

    Having looked it up on YouTube, it seems to shift. May have to give it a go :)

  12. This thread had me thinking...
    Just spent the last 2 hours messing with these
    I was amazed the the smaller kyosho mid worked when I found all the suitable batteries. The boy was very interested too. So I said we could get them going over the weekend [​IMG][​IMG]

  14. Very pleased with the driver. I might make him unshaven and weathered next.
