Thumbs up 1989 Tamiya Vanquish 4x4

Got a new toy !!!

The thing is mint, came with all kinds of goodies !




reno 003 (Small).jpg Almost brand new. It was like openning up a time capsule.

reno 004 (Small).jpg Most of the stickers are not even on yet.

reno 006 (Small).jpg From "radio Control, car action", Sept 1989.

reno 007 (Small).jpg

reno 008 (Small).jpg

reno 010 (Small).jpg

reno 011 (Small).jpg

reno 012 (Small).jpg

reno 013 (Small).jpg Note the carbon fiber upgraded cross piece !!

reno 014 (Small).jpg


Old school style !! goes like a bat out of hell !!

Think I need a new Batt, charger and new motor.

Where would be a good place in Ridge to get parts for this oldschool thing ?


Thanks Zackman for getting it up and running yesterday.




gigity !!

Lose the mechanical speed controll and get a new motor and battery. Same size motors as todays. You wont have a problem finding them.

You can replace the resistors on the speed controll i used to have to do it all the time before escs came along. Seal your new servos.

Sealing a servo is easy
Use a bit of silicone sealant around the wire harness where it enters the servo case. Apply it completely around the case area where the harness enters, as well as around any creases and screw holes on the case.
Use thick silicon grease around the output shaft, and reinstall the servo horn. The grease will protect the output bearings or bushings, and it will seal the case's internals.

99% of higher end servos come with orings between the two halfs. Its a good idea to seal all your electronics before you go out. Use a balloon zap straps and silicon grease to seal your receiver.

I would sell it rather then upgrade it. atoyot will take good care of her.
