"commit some terrible RC car faux pas first "

tut tut tut , cant believe hes got his springs that way around :roll: :lol: :lol:

im both surprised and not at the same time that the escort shells are a rareity , there were fooking loads of them , but i bet 90% of them saw some kerbs in their time

I have a stock Tamiya TT-01 chassis with Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO II body. The guy who was selling it in a RC shop was a little confused that I asked more quetions about the body rather than about chassis...
(I collect all models of Mercedes-Benz 190E W201).
Anyway, I have already found out that there are a lot of blue ano parts for it. Since I found the shop with them, I do not enter their page :? being afraid of addiction to tuning

and hope you all know... another hobby...

People have gone mad for vintage Tamiya stuff :roll: . It makes retro bikes look cheap in comparison.
