ANNOUNCEMENT!
I HAVE MADE A DECISION TO STOP WORKING ON THIS WEBSITE, AND MOVE ON TO MORE OF A "BLOG STYLE" WEBSITE AT MY NEW DOMAIN WWW.DIRT-BURNERS.COM. THERE IS NO DRAMA OR ANYTHING BEHIND THIS DECISION, IT'S JUST THAT EVERY TECHNICAL ASPECT OF THE OLD SITE IS OUTDATED, AND IT'S QUITE A HASSLE UPDATING IT THROUGH ASP AND HTML PROGRAMMING. THE NEW SITE IS RUNNING WORDPRESS AND IS MUCH EASIER TO UPDATE, AND CAN EASILY BE CUSTOMIZED THE WAY I WANT IT. REMEMBER IT'S NEARLY 15 YEARS SINCE I STARTED THIS SITE, AND THE WORLD (WIDE WEB) HAS MOVED ON. UPDATING THE OLD SITE TO NEW WEB STANDARDS WILL TAKE TOO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT, SO WORDPRESS SEEMED LIKE THE WAY TO GO. THE OLD SITE WILL STAY FOR NOW, BUT I PLAN TO MOVE MOST OF THE "IMPORTANT" INFO OVER TO THE NEW SITE. I HAVE MET MANY NICE PEOPLE THROUGH THE WORK WITH THE OLD SITE, AND I HOPE YOU'LL FOLLOW ME OVER TO THE NEW ONE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

VINTAGE RC HOP-UP INDEX OPENED!
I have started working on an index of vintage hop-ups, mainly for Kyosho and Tamiya buggies. The info is collected from various sources around the web, as well as from old catalogs, ads and from people I know from all around the world. A lot of the pics I have stolen from various places, hoping for forgivness, rather than trying the impossible task of contacting all the owners and trying to get permissions from every single place where I find them. I hope the original owners can see the value of this index, and the fact that I have no income from this site, only expenses. I see my own pictures posted around the web all the time, and have no problems with that. This is a huge project, and I will add new brands regularily. If you have any of the missing pictures, or info of missing parts or part numbers, don't hesitate to contact me. You'll find the index here.

 


 

At the bottom of most pages there are Facebook-comments boxes. Feel free to use this feature to make comments, point out mistakes, or to ask me questions. I will try to answer all questions asked.
