Just realised I may need some more bearings?
I have the ACOMS 2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM TRANSMITTER RECEIVER SERVO from here http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649 (THIS IS A COMPLETED AUCTION)
I all ready have a fast charger so I think I will be ready as soon as it all arrives.
I have seen the narrowing thread from VTRSP1, very informative but don't think I will be doing that yet.
This will be my first build for a few years so is there anything I need to know about this kit?
apart from it's ugly, the wheel base is too long and the body is full of holes.
As for all the holes in the body, not sure when Tamiya started doing that, but I did it back in 2009 and I thought it was a bodge back then.
I have had these shocks sitting on my desk for a while now after deciding they were too long for the pumpkin,
Then I came up with this, inspired by all the great mods I have seen here.
Hope you can make out what I have done from the pics, if not please ask.
I will tidy up the holes in the shell, looking at the last pic I think I have to.
That's it folks, untill I break it again or do the front.
