ive only seen a bad picture of this air scoop.it looks a similar thing to the tc4 air scoop???
it will raise the height of your electrics??

also if your racing on carpet it will suck all the fluff up.if it has fans in there??

and if your racing on tarmac in the summer months it will be sucking up the hot air from the sun baked floor.

just a thought or two

Thanks

Actually,....... I got a MRE and a MSX MINT!! from Guys on this forum that were getting rid of them and enough parts to build a new one for about $500.00. I was a die hard Losi fan and wanted to try something new. These cars are simply SEXY to the eye. So much Bling and they run great. Can't wait to put on a FULL assault this coming season, no matter where it is. I plan on handing over a lot of people's asses this year and I think I can get it done with the Tamiya line.

I mail order all my parts. You get a great deal but you need patience for delivery................ Can't wait for the summer.

I'll be coming at a track near you!!

Hey Smoking motor; I don`t run 1/12 Electric.....but I`ve heard from a few guys at Brooklyn Hobbies that it`s still running somewhere(in Long Island).

Hey Kwikvdub; we have to get these Hobby Shops to get with the Tamiya Program.....Ha Ha!
-If you don`t already know; there`s a Track at Floyd Bennett(The ONLY Track near me). The guys at Brooklyn Hobbies said they plan on setting up a few Electric On-Road Races this Season. . . . .We`ll see.

Tamiya does make nice looking Kits(a little too nice to be crashing-up).
-I see I`m not the only 1 getting Tamiya Parts from Aliso Viejo, CA.....and paying those prices. . . . .Glad to see I`m not alone.....Ha Ha!


I`ve installed the Aluminum Wheel Axles on My TB Evo 5. I thought they were the same color as the Aluminum Diffs. . . . .They`re Hard Titanium Colored. But they`re Much lighter than the Steel Axles.
I`ll see how long they last on My Evo 5.

I might race My TB Evo 5 this season at the Floyd Bennett Track. I`ll see you there.


Take Care

I've never bought anything from Tamiya directly. Too expensive. Everything is retail price. You should look into the mail order places in Hong Kong.

Me and others are looking into running at Floyd this year. Most of those Nitro Guys are running indoor electric in Long Island.

Should be a great summer of racing, can't wait!

Hey Kwikvdub; I will never buy a Kit straight from Tamiya(CRAZY Prices). But I do buy Parts straight from Tamiya.
-I don`t like to deal with those over-seas spots.


Only 3-5 of those Brooklyn Hobbies guys race Electric.....and I believe they run 1/12.

Hopefully this will be a Good Racing year. . . . .We`ll see.

Take Care

Yep,
you need to get the MRE manual and order the top shaft, carbon plate, bearing holders and TA05 center gears, then the 3 parts for the spool.
