  1. 🤔 wonder if the driver's a relative of Frank Whittle


    From their FAQ; Kindly note that Dinball rcMart is not responsible for any accidental lost by yourself after the parcel is shipped out. We shall be unable to provide you with the point validation code yet again since it is randomly generated by the system. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you should keep the point validation code carefully and enter it on your point information as soon as possible once you receive. I have 807 unclaimed points going back to 2010 - but then I didn't even know about these 'loyalty' points until last week

  4. Any help? It's got a few non-kit decals on it - here's the decal sheet; Looks like the numbers on the doors came from the Ford Ranger sheet


    According to their FAQ the credit is automatically applied, but only against goods, not shipping charges http://www.rcmart.com/faq.php?cID=10&action=load&qno=106

  10. For those considering it, don't forget to factor in the cost of bearings and... From UK suppliers, that's around £37 of LEDs

    That's not mine, there's a link under the pic for the owner's showroom entry
  12. Provided either the top or bottom links form at least one triangle (at the front and rear), then you shouldn't have any lateral movement except for ball-end slop Using OP's setup as example, both upper and lower links form a triangle if you extend their line out. You only need to triangulate either the top or bottom links, but it doesn't matter if both triangulate - just try to get the lower links converging in the opposite direction to their respective uppers If all of your links are running closer to parrallel, then you'll get lateral movement

    Looks a lot like a Super Sprint (Hopped up Dandy Dash) https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=114812&id=10980
  14. Build 'Tips and Techniques' would probably be the easiest to find it in - it'll disappear in 'General' in hours, although either is appropriate https://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?/forum/54-build-tips-and-techniques/
