Question Back in RC after 11 years lol

Hi Peeps,

After 11 years back in RC !!! lol

I finally put together my TB03D and its driving really nice especially since its got a 13.5 turn brushless sensored system, bought it in 2010 but never got it running lol

I recently bought a TT01E and have converted it to a Rally Spec. Getting the speedo today and I will be running it with a 17Turn Motor

Now I have had a HPI Super F1 for over 20 years had the back rear axle parts missing, but I am on the quest to get it completed. For those who dont know this was the first ever kit made by HPI cant find the exact release date but its either 1992 or 1993.

I have since found the other rear tyres and the missing Rear Hub for the one

These are the parts missing can anyone assist me finding them ?

***I have tried some of the local shops and emailed HPI to see if they can help***
Part Number Quantity Description Comments
6501 8 Diff Balls 1/8" for Spur Gear
6694 1 Spur Gear 94 Tooth (64 Pitch)
A001 1 F1 Front Suspention Set Looking for 1 Rear Pillar Post only
A037 1 Rear Axle (Graphite)

A041 1 Diff Cone Set
A042 4 Axle Spacer

quite a few parts on your list are generic items you can find alternatives for. But the few others will be a challenge. Have you tried finding a facebook group around vintage f1 rc cars or vintage hpi rc cars?

What an epic comeback! Still, I believe it's never too late.
