  1. It's mostly just talk about how good he made it by changing some things. he mentions changing to dog bones, which makes it a lot smoother. He mentions that with full bearings in the gearbox and rear, it can run for up to 30 mins on a battery. and although it has the normal motor, it feels quick. He mentions the fitting of the sway bar to help control the front end, because of the mono-shock. He took the new version for a drive and felt that it wasn't perfect, so he tried a sway bar like the hot shot and personally felt it drove better. then she says she doesn't know much about the old cars. and they ask about the Agrios. She makes the boys feel good about themselves by pretending not to understand the technology behind the frame of the agrios, so they can explain it to her.
  2. Thank you for the compliment. Couldn't justify the use of Lame flake on such a small area. Especially since a lot of it is covered by decals. But, I have a few other cars with sparkles.
  3. thank you. this model may almost mark my 100th build. I'll have to work it out.
  4. well, all the moulds have 1985 on them, so I doubt they went and made new moulds with old dates on them.
  5. painted mine Dark Metallic Blue
  6. no worries. ya, It would be nice if all the boxes were just the same size for similar types of cars, so said my storage closet too.
  7. box is 51.5 X 36.5 X 12 centimeters
  8. I might spray Lame Flake before I spray the main colour. I've done it on a couple of bodies and it looks great. Dark colours look like they will be the go. Now I have to make sure I post a pic of it here when done. If I can get something similar to my re-re bruiser colour...
  9. yes it does, those in the picture are the stock leads. I have an ESC with real short leads too. I put the ESC as far back in the tub as possible. The instructions said to put the radio parts in order from the front, servo, ESC, RX... I changed that to servo, RX, ESC. With the ESC cables facing to the right side of the tub, where the hole is.
  10. built it tonight, yet to paint the body. updated pics on my blog. As I've never personally had the original, I can't comment on chassis differences. Have a look at the pics and see what you think.
