    The Tamiya Miata RC Car thread

    I guess I am not the only one with a Tamiya RC Miata. I'll start with mine:





    Let's show yours too.

    I have a couple here at my house. Need to dig them out and take a photo.

    Also just recently acquired this Tamiya 1/10 scale Mazda 787b Mazda R/C car.

    Thank you! Well, it is a RC kit. Quite easy to build and I added a few mods (better engine, ball bearings etc.). It's great fun to build it and much fun to drive (RWD).
    Tamiya made this kit, it was sold out, they made a 2nd version (the one I have) which is sold out again but it usually pops up in ebay.

    I don't have a video yet but will create one.

    My R/C Miata, This one was built and then never used. I have another still MIB and some extra shells, just don't have much freetime though.

    I've been looking at these, but keep thinking I want a bit more out of it than that chassis will do... I've got a few random ideas about buying a similar sized Nitro, or 4WD chassis and transplanting on a bodyshell?

    I made two new pictures so that you actually can see the size compared to the real Miata:

    [IMG]c:img22.jpg[/IMG]

    [IMG]c:img23.jpg[/IMG]

    As you can see the color does not really match...

    I'm at last getting my act together and getting one of these, am buying (or hoping to buy!) a load of chassis, shells and bits off a guy on Ebay... in with the bits is an M 06 Pro chassis which should be about spot on for my project

    OK, it looks like my local car club have gone collectively stir crazy sat at home in the snow the last few weeks... 4 of us have now bought RC MX5s and a couple more already had them... I'm getting my old ramps and cones from my dads garage and we'll have some races at the meets in the summer... pics will follow but only in a few months when we've worked out how to build them & when the weather is a lot better!!

    Russell.
