Tamiya TRF511 Re-Build/Re-Store.
 
Hi all,

For those who are interested, I thought I would do a complete Re-Build/Re-Store of my TRF511.

I have been collecting for a while now a lot of new in packet parts.

These are,

TRF Complete Screw Kit including Tamiya Blue Screws
New Chassis
New Top Decks
New Complete Blue Parts (the complete 511).
New in Packet TRF 511 Shocks
New wishbones
New Diffs
New Belts
New centre slipper
New in packet Tamiya TRF 511 Original Body and Undertray set.

To name a few.

Once I get the chance, I will do a complete picture step by step build.:thumbsup:

Oh, and the layshaft..that can be hard to get maybe..

Sounds good to me!!

I do love a 511, had about 6/7 over the years, rebuilt one a few years back and its on the shelf with the rest of my old school rc cars

My current car that's on the shelf, raced it in shorty layout about 2 years back, went pretty well for an old car

Hi Mark....wondered where you had disappeared to after selling your Associated, and PR, kits..😟
I can see know why you needed the funds...those TRF parts don't come cheap..😉......and you have obviously been travelling the world collecting parts..!
Looks a great kit...will follow your build with interest..
