Mitsubishi to date

Took delivery from a trader in Japan some pretty cool hop-ups for my brand new 9 year old GP Spider at a fraction of the cost of the robbers in the U.K. As you can see in the pictures (new camera) i have installed Teflon Touring Shocks to the rear,a blue alloy centre mount,centre belt tensioner and a main belt tension post. Some more parts on order already this week but im keeping tight lipped as to what they are,hope you all like the pics. Before i go, many thanks again to Kareem for the Lotus Europa pic and maybe send us a few more. All the best to everyone,Tommy.

3 Little racers need our help

Before i unleash my part built Mitsubishi with cool hop-ups on you fellow Spidermen,please take a few moments of your time to read this message. A dude in the US of A has a wee financial worry and is looking for some 1/10th and 1/18th rc toys to kit out his 3 nephews for the coming xmas, not in any way is our friend looking for freebies but is working out of a small budget.I myself will put in a near new HPI RS4/3 which i bought from a friend 1 week ago for 60 British pounds, i will install all radio gear,handset etc. and post it to him for the same £60gbp. If any of you peeps have any stuff taking up space that you need then you can find this guy at and he goes under the pseudonym of "turbored21" so its>topics>for sale-wanted>cars>turbored21 or post a reply here, nephews are aged 8,10 and 12 if im correct.Here is a couple of pics of the RS4/3

Fazer chassis AG1

Steve,hope you get this picture of chassis.Also im putting up here a very rough drawing on how i solved the problem with the toe angle problem that occured when i owned a gp fazer.If you want me to make them i need the length of AG-22. you will have to swap the lower screw on ag-22 with a 4.5mm ball,get threaded rod and cut to the required length,add a ball holder either side of rod and screw fully in.The rod when made should be no longer than the one you have taken of the car, so in reality you should now have approx 6mm of adjustment to toe out but none back unless you shorten rod.Hope this makes sense to you,all the best.Tommy.

Brand new Pure Ten MKII

Today folks, i was lucky enough to take delivery of a brand new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V GP Spider.The only bad point is, no engine so if anybody has any ideas to what engine would make it super quick then please let me know.The good points, I only paid £41 for the car on E-Bay,unpainted shell,not one blemish on the chassis and the instruction manual is clean and intact. I now have a total of 5 gp spiders and hundreds of spares. Thanks for taking the time to read this and i look forward to any replies. The engine search starts.

Kyosho Pure Ten GP Spider

Hi, my name is Tommy and this is my blog about all things Kyosho, especially the Pure Ten series.
I am trying to attract people who own MKI and MKII GP Spiders. This is because it is becoming increasingly more difficult to acquire spares for these particular models. Please feel free to use this blog for buying, selling or swapping spares or cars. I myself have hundreds of spare parts!!! Most of all I would just like to get chatting about Nitro RC, tips and tricks and create a friendly community for all other Pure Ten enthusiasts.
