Default Up-Date

Hi all,

Just an up-date.

The parts I'm waiting for from Tamiya Japan, should be with me over the weekend or early next week.

Once in my hands, I will be able to complete the TRF511.....

Inspiring thread.
I've been a Tamiya fanboy of the TRF511 since it first came out.

Since then, I've grown my collection to include:
  • TRF501 (with all red alloy parts!)
  • TRF511
  • TRF503 (carbon chassis as well as alloy!)
  • DB01 (plastic version of belt drive TRF511)
  • DB02 (plastic version of shaft drive TRF502)
  • ...and finally, just arrived the other week from Japan, a new in the box TRF502

AFAIK, that's the full list. I'll post pics after the weekend to let everyone have a drool.

The 503 is the only runner, but then, why wouldn't you have at least one of them running?
I kept a lot of spares for it, so it's going to be a few years before it's "halted"...
