  1. Sticks for me - wheel controllers just feel wrong (but then I'm old).
  2. Wish that main gear had been available before I sold mine. Brushless was fun, but I got nervous that I was going trash it and end up with a shelfer.
  3. Yep, lovely in the sun (when it's not too crowded) but rubbish for RC.
  4. Yeah, beats my beach by a long way!
  5. Blitzer in it's natural habitat...
  6. Also, don't use a nicely painted shell - the sand will blast off the paint from underneath. If you can keep it dry, then most of the sand will brush off. If it gets wet you'll probably want to rinse as many parts as possible with clean water and dry thoroughly. Whatever you do, clean it as soon as you can. If you leave it, it will corrode and rust.
  7. Try this stuff https://www.amazon.co.uk/UniBond-More-Nails-Permanent-Roll/dp/B001DYS76Q Works brilliantly - super sticky and comes off easily when needed (in one piece).
  8. How is nobody talking about those ridiculous mudguards? I love the fact they've put a driver figure in there and the chassis looks awesome (for Tamiya) but the body is as ugly as the original is beautiful.
  9. Ahhhh - the Stadium Thunder in it's natural habitat, the beach. Mine hasn't been to the beach for a couple of years now. I think it's missing it.
  10. Your thread title seems a bit strong compared the to content of your post I'm not sure how you could mount the motor symmetrically? Unless you mount it longitudinally (which would require more gears), some part is always going to be asymmetrical. Personally I'm a big fan of both chassis - the Stadium Thunder is a great basher (with brushless and LiPo) and the Dyna Blaster is just nice to look at!
  11. I replaced all the threaded shafts on my Stadium Thunder with shafts and c-clips and have never looked back. They used to constantly keep backing themselves out - I guess the plastic is pretty old now. Yes, they are slightly more of a faff in insert and remove, but I'm happy with that knowing that they stay put. (not my idea by the way - I forget who it was, but it was somebody on here - many thanks whoever it was!)
  12. lol - they couldn't have chosen anything worse! Actually - a lunch box maybe...
  13. Fred was driving the electric odyssey: https://wordlesstech.com/extreme-e-odyssey-21-racing-electric-suv/ They made the comparison that it's just a big RC - it sounds exactly the same!
