I'll get some pictures made, and at the same time update the Motors DataBase


Hi Lars,
if you should miss a motor. You need to try this shop in Belgium. One of the oldest Tamiya shops. He might still have some early 2000 motors still for sale. Like the RR we used in 2003 in the Tamiya Belgium cup.

Thank you, I'll have a look :-)

A nice m03m arrived today. With interesting hopups.
And a lot of spares.
But I am looking for m03 d3 and d4 parts to have a m03L to fit my cooper s 2006.

I am really happy with this.
My first Tamiya was the Sand Rover when it was originally released and in 2015 I bought a really beaten up one.
Between then and now I’ve bought a lot of parts, tyres you name it I’ve bought it, even a Holiday Buggy. Which I don’t really like.
Any way a while back I bought some Cheetah parts off a total gent.
Long story short, he was happy to hold this Sand Rover for me. This week I was finally able to get my hands on it.
It arrived on Wednesday, but tonight I opened up the box.
It’s in lovely condition, I’m super happy.

Shock towers aren’t broken, now that is rare, I’ve got 5 other chassis to prove it.
Body shell is in beautiful condition.
I thought I might have paid a bit too much, but no worth every penny.

Can’t wait to start cleaning this up.
And all those NOS tyres, especially the rear ones are now a good purchase.

Wooohhh Al. It is a very nice condition sand rover. With acoms mk1 (?) Radio gears. The body needs only a good cleaning. Congrats.

Nice one :) So a complete restoration or just a tidy up?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Hi Flo, Rob thanks.
I had a good look over it last night.
The chassis is in very good condition.
The bottom looks very clean and barely a scratch.

The shell is great. It looks like it’s only been painted once. A nice paint job as well.

So I could just clean it up. But I think this is going box art. I have other shells to try out something different. Plus it wouldn’t really feel like mine if I just gave it a clean.

I also have all the bits to make it 100% complete, which isn’t too much to be fair.

I think the only bits missing are the gear lever and the rear bumper.

Which will be in my stash of Sand Rover / Holiday Buggy parts.

Hi Flo, the servos are asa 227.
I really know very little about Acoms equipment.
I know they are original for the time.

I’m currently waiting for an early Acoms transmitter to arrive, after realising I now have 4 sets of servos and receivers, but no idea if any of them work.

I was going to say I’ve always had Futaba gear, but that would consist of borrowing my dads M series and then the set I bought in the mid 80’s.

So I certainly have a lot to learn and catch up on, on this front.
