My old website.

This is my old photo website site from 2005.

It has pics of the cars I collected while I was living in Osaka.

Including my Mounty.

Toyota TS020 F103

Starting building this yesterday, fell ill and had to finish making it today.

Should be fun to drive, has the black “sport tuned” motor.

This time, I decided to use the Gopro to take one photo every 10 seconds and then I used iMovie on my Mac to make a time-lapse video, here it is below.

And here are a few pics of the finished product, I messed up a little on the tough sticker set.

But this car will be run.

Sunday Driving

Went to the local free track again today to try out the new drifter, drive the F1 car and a couple of other cars.

Points of the day:
There was a good group down there, including a couple of helicopter pilots.
The CS in the rear of the TB03VDS is not that fun… I think I’ll go back to 50/50 for a while…

Here are a couple vids I took.

Driving today in Okayama 百間川

took my F1 Ferrari 643, the TB-02 converted to camera car duties, and one of my trucks down to the local track this afternoon. Good fun except the front diff in the TB-02 kept coming loose, which creates a great deal of spin-outs in a car with a spool in the rear! First video below is of the F1 cars out on the track.

F-104W Ferrari 643

Built this Ferrari 643 on the wide F104 chassis today.
I painted the body last night and am yet to do the helmet. I have decided on Alain Prost livery.
The build of these chassis is straight forward, but there are places you have to be careful not to mount things backwards.
the F104W chassis is an F104 double deck chassis with the rear diffuser plate under the motor pod and better rear suspension. But it has the 103 rear axle and diff setup as well as the 103 front end to bring the width to a more “scale to the era.” Look to the car.
I fit an xerun brushless 10t in it, to see what it would be like, but I don’t think I will enjoy it with that much motor. So I’ll likely change it back to kit motor once I get a better servo for it.
Here are a few pics I took with my phone.

My full size car

This is my real car. It’s a Toyota SW20 MR2 Turbo. 1996 model, so it has the 245 HP engine.  I’ve turned up the boost and fit a stainless downpipe. It also has a cross gearbox with lower ratio 2nd 3rd and 4th gears.
The photo was taken at Okayama international circuit. I took it there to race.
Okayama international circuit is the last track Ayrton Senna completed an F1 race, a few short weeks before his death in Italy.
