I've always found Modelfixings to be a good source for small quantities of unusual bearings and hardware.

Coax antenna length?

I bought a generic 2.4ghz antenna to replace the damaged one on my Futaba receiver.

I've noticed it is only about 2/3rds of the length of the original Futaba antenna? Do any of the radio experts...

Instead of an electric screwdriver, I would suggest getting an M3 hand tap to tap out the screw holes first. Very easy to make mistakes with an electric screwdriver.

The TT-02 high speed gear set will fit with the use of some alternative shims/spacers - HOWEVER the TT-02 gearing is very different, and the "fast spur" for a TT-02 is larger than the largest TT-01...

Since you already have the IF14, just get the IF14 up to racing specification.

Slowly upgrading your TA02 is a waste of time - it will not handle as well as the IF14 and has no realistic setup...

Also bear in mind that the frequency the capacitor is operating at is much higher than the frequency that the telemetry will monitor at - the capacitor just fills momentary dips in the power supply....

This is Tamiya's business model. They make limited runs of the TRF cars, and because there is a large group of Tamiya enthusiasts out there, the whole run (usually) gets sold very quickly.

I don't know anything about the Atomic but since it is a micro car I assume the battery packs are a specific size for it?

The Mi1 is a decent enough car and a Schumacher are a serious RC company. It is very outdated now though (original version must be about 15 years old now), and would only be good for getting a taste...

You really don't need to do that! Pliers? :eek:

Plumbing supplier. Based on the principle that a 63mm diameter pipe is very close to the diameter of a touring car tyre.

The Xpress of today is not the Xpress of 20 years ago. Effectively it is an RCMart own-brand.

The full-fat Execute struck me as being seriously overpriced. This version is very cheap. If the...

Have to respect the ingenuity :nod:

Take a car that was a failure in its time, and exploit the weird design to create a "handling" shell for RC that is still convincing as a "scale" replica.

I'm not aware of any treaded tyres that have the tread for improved performance on carpet. The tread is for looks and potentially for better grip on wet/dirty surfaces.
