Vintage 1986 Tamiya Falcon Restored
« on: December 11, 2016, 10:47:51 AM »
Hello,
Picked this used Falcon about a week ago.
It was complete and body unpainted.
Had a few broken parts (mostly front end parts).
I have taken the critical components apart to inspect, and clean.
It needed a new chassis, front shock towers and parts.
The gearbox, gears, drivetrains, and electronics are in excellent condition as well as the shocks.
Thanks for looking.

Wow Sang you really find the good ones!  The Falcon was my first 'competitive' RC buggy, I loved mine, well, until I saw a JRX2!  Nice pics.
