Tamiya Super (Hot)shot Rebuild

Recently I bought this Tamiya Super Hotshot together wit an Tamiya hotshot II and an Tamiya Thundershot frame. In this post i will be rebuilding the Super hotshot. But looking at pictures and some manuals i think this is an Tamiya Supershot. As you can see in the pictures a lot of parts are missing but i think i have collected all the parts that i need for this rebuild.

These older cars are a bit more complicated then the newer cars i find. There are quite some parts and i’m trying to reuse most of the parts. Later in the post i will make an list with all the new parts.

Rear gearbox assembly. All the gears are in good condition

It’s slowly coming together. I probably should paint the little guy now but i’m a bit lacy, so i’m going to leave as it is for now. The only thing, so far, that could be a problem are the front drive shafts. I bought a new set but the diameter is smaller than the old ones. I think the original drive shafts are not sold anymore but maybe the popup somewhere for sale!

At this point i’m also thinking about the color for the body. I don’t like the original gray color! If somebody has an idea for a color please let me know!
