Exclamation Mad Tune auction

Yahoo! Taiwan Keyence Mad Tune Toyota Celica GT-R

I ran it through Babelfish, and I think the auction is still going.

Cool but how expensive is it because my computer doesn't show Japanese or whatever!

Keyence Mad Tune Toyota Celica GTR

Hi guys good to see a Mad Tune or two are still out there.
I have posted some pics of mine at the link below.
Hey Overlander, I emailed Herpa and they said they didnt and dont make bodies for these , pitty, I would have liked to find another one.
Have a look.......
Keyence Mad Tune on AUSMICRO.com forum

I have given it a cleanout and changed the internal battery, it runs really well now.
uA

Hey Assuie Amps,
I was pretty sure that the bodies were made by Herpa. Herpa and Keyence have been doing things together for a long time. Like the Deskrunners.

I could be wrong about the cars though. You never know who answered your email. Could be some youngster who was nine years old when these things were new

Yes that is a possibility too. Anyway this is the guy that sent the email.....

Herpa Miniaturmodelle GmbH
Matthias Wolff
Produktmanager Cars & Trucks
Leonrodstrae 47
90599 Dietenhofen
E-Mail:wolffm@herpa.de
www.herpa.de

He is the product manager, so I figured he was the right person to talk to. No guarantee he even knows what I am talking about though, but I did send him a pic of the car. Still....no luck there.
So I emailed Keyence too at.......

KEYENCE CORPORATION
Hi-Tech Hobby Div.
Kenichi Hayashi(Mr.)
1-3-14,Higashinakajima Higashiyodogawa-ku
Osaka 533-8555, JAPAN
FAX +81-6-6379-1190
E-mail hobby-international@keyence.co.jp

and his reply, as expected.......

Unfortunately we have already discontinued this product. (End of life.)
Instead, we can offer some alternative R/C products as follows:
1/87 R/C TRAILER "DESKRUNNER 2000"

So thats it I guess. If you have one, keep it in good condition because there aint any more, and there aint any parts or hop ups either. Just enjoy what youve got.


uA

Thnks for doing the legwork.

I am going to keep mine orriginal. I will probably update the battery as you have done. HoweverI will keep an eye out for herpa (or other HO scale) bodies that might fit.

I still must be the only guy in the U.S. to have one. So far, there is a guy in France (Fove3 earlier in this thread) you in Austrailia, and me in California. That is a pretty spread out owners club!

Hi overlander! Thanks for your contribution to TTTT btw...
Here another Mad Tune owner:
http://www1.plala.or.jp/cappo/iimono1/iimono02.html
That makes 2 Silvia vs 2 Celica, we should meet and race some place on the planet I need to do the cell ugrade first, mine is still less a minute runtime with the stock cell.
Great thread on aussiemicro micro-amps, thank you!
I had the same "robot reply" from Keyence regarding Mad Tune questions.

Mad tune.

We should stick together and post anything we find that might add to our Mad tune fun...bodies etc. Four members worldwide thats a pretty distant owners club.
I will add posts at Ausmicro (and here) when I find anything.
Racer9, just keep doing net searches for these, you will find one eventually.

WoW!!!

:: those things are amazing! , it's like somebody or a micro rc addict/genius from the future brought it here, it's way ahead of his time, imagine somebody was able to think of such technology to fit into such a small car ..... okey, i know, enough watching sci-fi movies for me now. ... keep it in mint condition guys, you'll be surprised how much that it would cost 20 or 30 years from now.. "the granddaddy of micro rc"

Wow!
What a great price!

I would not sell mine for anything less than $1000 U.S.

Mine is mint. The one that just sold on ebay looked like it had some hard use. But still, someone got a tremendous deal.

Hi Overlander!
Nobody got it! The auction just ended.
I almost bought it, that would have been my 3rd
Yes, the guy changed the cell inside the car, depending his skills the car still works or is all messed up...
