Well done Pat!  I recently got one of these in the stash, anything special to look out for?

The front section with the four wheels/suspension and the rear radiator piping, kinks easily and needs shortening and warming up(hot water) when connecting to the radiators. I also had a problem getting the rear wheels to line up in a forward straight line, both wanted to be splayed out towards the front and tuck in at the back. Looking back in the early days of Tamiya F1 cars I preferred the 1/10th-1/12th scale, easier to build but now very expensive.

Thanks guys as an ex marshal at the Silverstone circuit this was one of the groundbrakers in 6 wheel technology, only Tyrrell  had 4 wheels at the front. March and Williams had four wheels at the back  but neither of the others raced, due to various power down transmission and grip problems!

Hi All

i have a 1:10 scale Tyrrell P34 kit No.RA1003

i got this from my grandfather when i was a kid, I'm trying to get it running but am struggling to find out exactly what i have, from my research i found it could be a older model from around 1977 reason is based off the parts it has in (i.e the older steering block etc.) from photos i could find

i am based in South Africa so seeking someone to help/ advise on maybe finding parts or getting in running, at some point i had it driving but the steering block/ mechanism is giving problems i would like to keep it as original as possible, and get it on the road to hand over to my son, so it has some sentimental value i am not really to concerned about the actual value of the product although it will be interesting if someone might know any advice will be greatly appreciated spacer.png

Thanks Pierre Rivard.

David, I know nothing of any RC Cars. I had one of the first Tamiya Beetle Sand Scorchers about 35 years ago, but the batteries were so lacking in power for more than 15 minutes I got rid of it!
