I i’ve only done one video on it. I’Ve kept quiet about it and i’ll explain why i did the um the video when tamiya released all of that stuff on that last launch, and i was really excited about the evo, but i did it instantly so i didn’t have time to look at the evo Of a spec of it um and i was kind of jumping for joy and that but pretty much after i made the video, i went and had a look at it, and i could tell just by pictures that um there were things that were different from it. From the original um, así que sí, as i kind of looked into it and i’ve, said this to a lot of people, i feel tammy have been a little bit lazy with this one, because um all the things that made the original and evo are missing from miss Riri now, Obviamente, you expect some of it, but all of it’s missing, which is really poor. así que, Básicamente, up until this, this riri was announced. Chicos, like myself and lots of other people have been making replica revolves for the last two three years dying: the wheels buying the cabin chassis, high caps and all that this is all that tammy has done with this model. Um es, just a dressed up top force. Um and what about my that is yeah in the case full cabin, you get the high caps and you get the orange wheels cool and obviously you get well it’s pre painted shell um in the gunmetal grey, but you get the slightly changed evo decals.
So it looks apart, but the thing that separated the original evo was all the running gear and and it had lots of little differences and the rear is not even coming with the correct turnbuckles original. Had the um titanium screw sets the lightweight diffs, which were what i’m 99 sure this this new one hasn’t got, and i know a lot a few. Quite a few other little differences now that’s. What made it an evo for me so anyway that’s the first time i’ve actually talked about that um on this channel, but um i didn’t jump on the bandwagon. I didn’t order one when it came out, but i thought i did felt think to myself. As soon as i see the box i’m, hoping for like um, a a very well presented box. Um anyway, um martin shout out to martin posted a tamiko video on the facebook group. Yesterday, um – and it was this guy doing basically an unboxing of the new riri um and i was just so curious to see as soon as he took the lid off, because the outside of the box looks beautiful. The box that’s there and i was desperate for him to take the the lid off and when he did this i know this is a poor picture. So i apologize for that, pero es, just a bake, es, a basic box, three sections and it’s: just the parts are just thrown in there and i i cannot tell you guys how disappointed i am with that.
So for me personally, this kit, 100 100 had to be presented exactly the same as the avanti and the egress um. When the lid comes off, i wanted to see all the bits laid out: um and it’s, just not it’s it’s, just it’s a little bit like a vanquish it’s just thrown in the box, so i’m really disappointed, and that has put me off getting one i’ve got Ta be honest: i was disappointed enough with the spec of it um, but i thought nevertheless it’s kind of cool um because you can’t get all the original parts for the evo all the little things that change you just can’t get them so difficult to find. So i understand i’m not doing the full thing, but to be honest, it’s not even close out all myself and all the other guys who made replicas we’re just as close to uh the evo as tamira they’ve, not really made an effort and then to have that Basic packaging not good, and i know we know they can do it. This has just arrived um. I wasn’t even going to make a video about this. So i’ll just talk about now. I’Ve bought this i’m looking for an original um rx to put into my collection. So i wasn’t overly bothered about this kit when it came out until i saw this box, this box is absolutely superb. Tamiya have really thought about it, um and it’s. Just it’s awesome.
I absolutely love it. The colors everything just works for me now. This is only 125 pound kit. This is not top level kit at all, but we’ve gone about it. The inside’s, not nothing spectacular, pero es, es, Bien, pero estoy. You know i’m gon na pull this figure out my bottom, but i bet just because of this box. Tammy has sold an extra 30 40 percent of these kits just because of that box and ha because it looks high end. You know it’s it’s awesome, so you know we know they can do it. Why have you not take it? Why have you not made the effort on the evo kit because had that come in with all the blister packaging eve down either side the shocks and everything the bearings? And what have you you know? I would have hundred percent bought 100 De todos modos, very disappointed anyway that’s. My rant over right so i’m going to show you some things now that um i’ve been working on i’ll show you the um, my tammy legends company, car um, so a massive shout out to peter. He made these decals for me um and i ended up putting him on the car and i played – and i took all these sort of original manta rare decals off um so i’m, going to show you that and then this morning, i’ve actually just fitted i’ve just Made the racing wing for my original avante and i think that’s turned out superb as well, so i’ll show you those two cars and then i’ve got two high high end speed electronic speed controllers for brushed motors to show you and then a very special brush motor That’S turned up, so what do you think to that it’s? Pretty cool isn’t it i i love it.
I think it looks um, possibly the wings, probably a little bit too busy. They it had to have the big one on, but maybe i should have just put some um really sort of small ones on the side i might change it. Then i cut those up to put them on at an angle and we’ve got happy. Assing glenn barclay driver and uh whatcorn, pero um sí. What do you think guys? Estoy? Not these there’s. No, these stickers are not for sale or anything that’s. Not why i’m showing you it i’m, not no intentions of making them decals to uh, put on cars but um. Sí, Lo siento, the wheels there’s no servo in it. I just wanted to keep that straight sink in the back end. That looks mighty fine doesn’t it so again, massive shout out to peter all right. Mira esa cosa, así que um yeah! This is my original avante and this is um. The reproduction racing wing i’ve just done this morning, so i had an actual egress wing um, but mci now um do the decals for the racing wing. So if you don’t know, this wing came as a standalone hop up the egress wing with these of anti decals um. Now i’ve never saw i’ve, never seen it. On the standard of ante, like i’ve done um the full option, um avantik came basically had the egress cabin chassis, so it had the wire wing mounts which and the shocks were right at the back.
So it looked completely different um but i’ve not really. As i say, i’ve not kind of seen the evanta in standard guys with it but um. I think that looks absolutely superb. What do you think guys and stick in the comments? Um, Obviamente, for those of you who don’t know that’s the standard wing which obviously still looks superb but um yeah, i don’t know i um that’s a success for me and then there’s decal decals at the back as well. If you can just see that that you put on the back of the wing but um yeah, big big fan of that now um, i sort of pre empted what it could look like um and i thought well probably won’t – keep it on i’ll, probably put the Old wing back on, pero uh .uh, No, not a chance, i’m absolutely head over heels in love with how that looks. Superb right, we’ll keep being avante in shot just because it looks so good. So my um high end electronic um, no limit brushed speed. Controller has turned up: um i’ve had this on order for ages that’s, what it’s called um just for q, guys it’s with shipping it’s close to 90 Libras, quizás 100 pounds it’s, not cheap um, pero es, um, 2s and 3. i’m saying 3s, Estoy, No 100. Sure it’s definitely got it’s definitely 2s. Sólo me preguntaba. I probably should have read that i’m, not going to whiz it out. Um and obviously it’s got lipo cut off, but it comes with tamiya plug which i’ll swap out to dean’s and it’s got bullet connections for the martyr um.
Now that this was the only one i was going to buy, but i’ve i’ve read people on the groups who have plugged this in and it’s not been fantastic. It looks like it needs the programming. Um it’s got like a usb programming thing for your laptop, so i’ve not bought that but um i’m thinking. I might have to to do that because, como dije, this will run um well, it’s no limit brushed, which is awesome but i’m, not too sure it’ll. It runs correctly without programming, it um, so because of that this one came up on my selling group chummy legends um selling group page, which i was so happy about. So i hit uh contacted the guy. So this is a tech on tekken racing, and this is so just going to get this right. This is the fxr pro so it’s forward, brick and reverse um. Now this is no limit as well, which is absolutely awesome, and this is not brand new, but um i’ve tested it and it all works. Fine and it’s just ready to stick in a car again no limit and lipo uh lipo cutoff um, which is and i’m pretty sure that this runs yeah. Look at that two and three s: how cool is that wow? That is awesome and it’s dinky little thing? We’Re both pretty dinky, para ser honesto, um sí, very happy with that, and then what i want to show you quickly.
Um you saw my or hopefully you rig you like regular guys. Will i say my mortar collection well, this is this was the mortar. I was talking about at the time that i was waiting for. So this is one of my childhood motors um. I had two. Obviously this is the demon and my other one was a palmer. Cyclone um i’ve got actually got a modified, but it was actually the um stock cyclone i had back in the day. This is a modified demon and again it was a stock one. I had back in the day um. I will not run this i’ve just bought that for pure sentimental reasons for me and nostalgia, and that looks so pretty in my collection and i’m quite i’m quite lucky to have found one in such nice condition. So um yeah extremely happy with that bad boy. So yeah that’s, really all i’ve, been on with recently not doing a lot still getting a few quite well kits, are still coming in, pero um. My new inbox collection is almost as big as my built collection now, which is not good but yeah. I just really not got my mojo back for to building and uh it’s a shame now, because the snow’s pretty much well the snow’s gone um. So i should really be starting getting the running videos made, pero um sí, just not feeling it right now. Um, as i say i have got, i think the next five saturday videos are all made uh and just on that i’ll uh there won’t be a saturday.
Video i’ll do i’ll because i posted this one um on thursday, the um normally scheduled video will go out sunday and it’s, the um xr3 11 um, the body shell, and just getting that all finished off yeah. I loved that i just loved it there’s that full build just gives you a massive um glimpse into what tamiya was all about back in the late 70s, just how it all goes together. I won’t say too much marks. I don’t want to spoil the video because i do go into it in that, but uh yeah that’ll go out sunday morning um. Como dije, there’s lots of well. There is quite a few new kits you’ve, not seen, but you will see them, but i will just show you something: that’s um. What day is this? I put this video out on thursday, así que estoy, hoping that thursday or friday this is going to arrive i’ll just fold the tamiya thing, so you can’t see it but um that’s a hop up for it. That’S comforts here wonder if you guys know what this car is and i’ve got the wheels for it. Y sí, it is tamiya one eighth scale. Esta cosa, Estoy, going to show you when it arrives, is the closest thing tamiya ever did to her. What you call a basher – i guess um anyway yeah well, i don’t want to give too much aware um very special thing: that’s turning up and we’ve got big plans for it, so that video shouldn’t be too long.
The first one just showing you guys and telling you what i’m going to do with it, because it’s going to be very special indeed anyway, i’ll wrap this video up there and hope you enjoyed it once again.
