    I am looking for a 1:10th scale of a corvette body perferably a 1997 or above. I have seen the whole kit together but noone seems to sell just the bodies by themself. If anyone can guide me in the right direction I would be most grateful. I am sure since the whole 1:8th R/C kit can be bought someone has got to offer the body alone (I Hope anyway) just "Google" isnt doin me justice in my search

    I made a mistake when I first stated I was looking for a 1:10th scale I meant to say a 1:8th scale. I have found 1:10th but 1:8th I cannot find anywhere

    hi i have a thunder tiger evo-12 engine. and i have had some problems putting my thunder tiger ts-4n pro car together so i took it to a shop who assemble cars, but they wouldnt put it together for me until i got a prop. washer.
    apparently it goes over the brass cone, in between the engine and the flywheel.

    does anyone know what they are talking about? i saw one on a picture of another car, but i havent been able to find any information about one for the EVO-12.

    hopefully, Richard.

    My engine seems to over heat too much or is it just me. What the f*** is wrong? Should I clean the engine or something. Anyone know what the f*** is wrong. I can't even get half a tank of gas before it over heats. Any tips tell me.

    it's pretty easy pnce you get some direction. I had the same problem - this is what I did...first, run your engine a little richer, use a temp gun ($50) to monitor the temp (less than 230-250 degrees is optimal according to various articles and websites). Buy a heatsink for your engine. Lastly, make sure your body has proper cut outs for air circulation (front window, side window and back window pane). This should cure your problems. Additionally, switch to a fuel like O'Donnell - it has a higher oil content and will keep your engine cooler. A little dirtier becaue of the extra oil, but its worth it in my opinion!

    Hi, I have a Electric AE TC3 with a Trinity Speed Gem Motor 9T, Duratrax ESC 8T rev. powered by Sanyo 3000 mAH 7.2 V w/ Futaba Magnum JR Tx. During initial run (after full charge) car accelerates but after a few mins. (no more than 3 mins.) The car decelerates & really slows down @ full throt. I noticed though that when I make sharp turns that's the time that it starts to decelerate. I double check motor's brushes & coms & all are in good cond & are clean. Do I need to re-configure ESC or downgrade my motor to higher turns? Is battery causing trouble (Since before I've been using 1900 mAH 7.2 & switched to 3000 7.2 mAH). Please advise. Thank you so much.

    I used to have a Tamiya MO3 Mini Cooper that I received as a birthady presnt when I was 9. When I went to use the model a few weeks ago I noticed that the suspension arms were quite loose (about 3mm of play) and even when I tightened all the screws they were still loose. Anyway, I decided to rebuild the model to see if this fixed the problem, but it had no effect. It is built correctly as far as I know.
    I am now 15 and have just bought another Tamiya car (TL01-A Beams Integra) which I am hoping to start racing and tune it up. I am just wondering if I have made any mistakes during construction or if it is just a characteristic of the model because I dont want the same to happen to my TL01-A.
    Thanks in advance:)[?][?]

    It is almost impossible to remove paint from lexan bodies... I have tried many times and have ended up damaging the body.

    You can try scraping and sandpaper... but not worth the time and effort.
