that terra conquerer is sick. love it! df01's are the bomb.

you wouldn't think it but that terra conquerer will smoke the egress and avante, pretty much smoke any tamiya 4wd up to the df03's anddb01's.

Yes the conqueror has a simple but very reliable chassis. Great car.

I had a Manta Ray a long time ago, if you have one it'd be nice to see it. Was the Manta Ray a DF01 I recognise that metal king pin brace at the front on the Terra Conqueror.

Just started my vintage collection with an almost brand new Tamiya Ford F-150 Ranger, not a scratch on it, bad part.... Missing the body... But on the brighter side of things, just picked up a brand new, still in the original shrink wrap Ford F-150 Ranger... Both are kit #58027... Anyone have a vintage F-150 Ranger body for sale? Thinking of modding a Blackfoot body for now. They look like exact copies. Just fill in the holes where the light bar goes, drill a few body mount holes and the switch hole.

There are also another 20 Kits and cars that have not been added to that list...Cool stuff like a very early Kyosho Axis Buggy from the 80's....Ther are also Tamiya Models and other vintage models that have not mafde it up yet...a 150 car Die Cast collection, my original models that I built in 1960 as a kid (original Munster Koach), and shopping cart site where I will be selling over a thousand vintage parts....



Not to mention pictures and descritions of all the cars on the original list...


In the next week I will be adding pics for the above list of the Kyosho Nolstalgia Kits, The TA Nitro Dual Sport, my HPI Challenge winning Nitro rtr 3, My HPI Super Nitro HPI Challenge car (which has been in almost every HPI Challenge A Main), The HPI Rally Car , The HPI MT, and a Build Tips list for the HPI Blitz...


Also, the fastharry.com Americal Graffiti 55 Chevrolet is getting a complete photo history....and that is something you should check out...

Thanks again....The sad part is, in 2009 I sold about 50 cars just to survive. Cool stuff like the Kyosho Plazma KS2 pan car, the BMT Tamiya and the Kyosho F 10 series Panoz car. Buit as the same cars come up on ebay I am slowling buying them back. I just picked up the Tamiya Ferrari 310 F1...another one I wanted back. I also picked up the Kyosho AXIS...a beatiful cheap buggy Ktosho Made in the late 80's...


And, I am trying to buy back my New in box HPI Mini from the guy I sold it to 3 years ago..
