RE: Mirage V-spec
I have no idea where to find parts for it but I have one too. Not a v-spec but a mirage pro. What parts are you looking for? I just bought an eb4 and it seems like a few parts are interchangable between the two.

RE: Mirage V-spec
It looks like a mirage pro from the top but if it has kick-up in the front of the chassis it's a v-spec. Also I notice your rear shocks are on the back side of the shock tower. Mine are on the front with the arms facing the other direction.

RE: Mirage V-spec
[size=3]Hello terrible
The chassis is flat with no kick up
as for the shocks will it make a big difference to turning them around ????
have you any info for this model or know where i might find some
Thanks Again

1 it's old
2 they last forever
3 I'll never part with mine!

You have a mirage pro there. I don't know why they called it a PRO, there was only that one before the v-spec. As for the shocks I'd leave them that way. They are a bit further from the front wheels there and maybe a little less likely to be pelted with dirt.

Is that the factory thunder tiger motor? I bought mine with the motor without the pullstart. That was the best nitro eneing I ever had. It went through four gallons of fuel in three seasons, sat for three years and fired right up after all that to run another gallon and a half before finally giving up.

I still have the exploded picture, manual, and origanl box mine came in some where. my dad bought it for me as a x-mas present in '96. The only parts I replaced are: the front universals (buy mugen ones if yours wear out) clutch bells, new shocks (the e-clips wouldn't hold the piston with thicker oil), a new wing (factory one broke) and a few sets of tires.

RE: Mirage V-spec
I've tryed to find a manual on this car but with no look.
I wanted one just for part numbers, as for the engine its a THUNDER TIGER PRO 21R if that makes sense to you BUT is goes.
Just can't stop it fast enough.
The only dealers in the UK no longer sell spares for this model and told me to sell it while its still runing,
It runs like a dream and i'll not part with mine

RE: Mirage V-spec
I know you said you were looking for a manual, but maybe this link can help you with some info or whatever

They have information about the TT LE and S2 conversion.

RE: Mirage V-spec
OK great many thanks

RE: Mirage V-spec
Well I can get you any part number you want. Also for you brake problem try this: Pick up an eb4 brake kit. Buy two brake rotors and two sets of shoes and pads. Convert it over to the metal disk with fiber pads insted of the other way around. Those parts will bolt right up. I use a 3003 futaba servo ( el' cheapo) and my car stops very well.
