    Traxxas superten?

    I'd say it's not Traxxas at all, but if you bought a part for it that came in a Traxxas package, that confuses me. What was the part# and where did you get it? How did you know to buy that part if you don't know what the vehicle is?Traxxas did make an onroad version of their 1/6 scale Monster Buggy, but that had a 23cc Zenoah gasoline engine & looks very different (and bigger) than your car.
  2. I already have a star there & they've also assured me that it isn't their forum software doing it.
  3. I posted several pics of my weekend at the Jeep Jamboree in the rccrawler.com forums, but the pics don't show up, just links. Something is adding a space to .jpg so it's .jp g & the link works, but the pic won't post. Here's the thread: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38446 Is this something that was done purposely so we don't use up bandwidth? Or am I doing something stupid? Perhaps both? [:$] Thanks, Neil Edit - I might as well try one here & see what happens: http://www.tcphotos.com/getuserimage.asp?t...006025839_3.jpg Edit - I thought I could do it here before, but it's been a while. Maybe I just can't remember the proper way to do it. Please help!
  4. You can use an extra small bevel gear (BM2) placed between two of the ones in the diff to lock it. If you don't have any extras, you can just use one of the original 3 in the diff & put it between the other two (which is what I did). This will lock it, seems to me to be the simplest way, & is reversable.
  5. Parma used to make a hardtop, but discontinued it a while ago. Keep an eye out on ebay. Here's some pics of one on a Traxxas Stampede: http://members.cox.net/glentheviking/rc/honcho.html

    The New Bruiser

    I'm not a big fan of real Fords, but I have to admit that Tamiya's Jugg body is very nice. However, I am curious which modern 1:1 trucks you'd like to see on this chassis or which ones you think may be likely if Tamiya does sell it with different bodies like they did with the old 3-speeds. I think a Toyota would be more likely than anything else, though I'd prefer the Tacoma over the Tundra.

    False Fair enough, that's what I get for believing stuff I read on internet message boards! At least the release is real. I know I'm looking forward to it.

    The New Bruiser

    I'm not sure where I had seen it posted before, but apparently TamiyaUSA wasn't supposed to put those new vehicles up on their website until after their debut at the Shizuoka hobby show. The release date I keep seeing is for the end of this July & price estimates are around $350-$399. I don't know if that's supposed to be the MSRP or the street price. I'm not sure if that release date is for the USA or everywhere, but the price seens about right as a street price in comparison to prices for the semi-trucks. In the end, I really don't care about all of that as long as I can get one when they start selling them. []

    RPM Monster claws fitting problem

    Tamiya and apparently the UK calls these bearings: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti00...=LXGN37&P=7 http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti00...=LXSK70&P=7 Here in the US, we call them bushings. I didn't find any of the 5x8mm size from Tamiya on that website, but I have alot of Traxxas vehicles & they have several different thicknesses of them: These are the sort I was talking about originally & I know Tamiya kits have them too. I know the TA-01 & TA-02 cars have them in the gearboxes. Here they are: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti00...=LXJK83&P=7 Traxxas also has some plastic ones in various thicknesses: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti00...=LXLR52&P=7 I usually have loads of these when I replace them with bearings/ballraces, & then I end up using them as spacers. It would be alot easier if the English we speak & the English you speak were the same! It should be easier to figure out with the pictures, but feel free to keep asking if I'm still not explaining it well enough. I was always a better student than a teacher! Cheers! [] Neil

    Yes, that's what I meant. Here in the US, what you call ballraces, we call bearings and what you call bearings, we call bushings. It's a little trickier than tyres = tires, lol.

    Try one or two of the smaller 5x8mm bushings as spacers. They shouldn't bind up the bearings like the larger bushings do when used as spacers.
  13. I'm in the USA & of course we all drive on the right side of the road (when sober). I had previously thought that everone else drove on the left (wrong) side, but recently learned that this is not the case. When in Europe for example, what happens when you go from a country that drives on the left to a country that drives on the right (or vice-versa). Is there some sort of crossover or something to get everyone switched over? I was also wondering about which side of the cars the steering wheel is on. Over here it's on the left side & we drive on the right side of the road & shift with our right hand. I know that it's the opposite for Japan & can only assume it's the same for Europe, but does it vary depending by country & which side of the road is driven on? Or do all cars in Europe have the steering wheel on the right whether the car is driven on the right or left side of the road? Some cars here do have the steering wheel on the right, but it's usually the kids that want their Japanese car to be Japanese spec. The other exception is postal workers who have their steering wheel on the right so they can easily reach roadside mailboxes. Anyway, just curious & hoping some of you won't mind letting me know which way different countries do it. As you say: Cheers! Neil

    DIY brake lights... Any ideas?

    3.3F = 3,000,000uF Your cap is most likely 3.3uF, which is not unreasonable at all. 3.3F would be unreasonable. If it was 3.3 farads, the capactior would be close to the size of a 2 liter soda bottle. Have you ever seen the huge capacitors sometimes used for car audio systems? Those are usually 1 or 2 farads.

    tamiyaclub ebay

    As usual, I think Chris covered it pretty well, but there is something I'd like to add. As long as people are will willing to pay high prices for something, someone is going to be there to sell it to them at a high price. Except for one instance, I've had nothing but good experiences buying/selling/trading here (& ebay for that matter). Most members here seem to enjoy this hobby, but even the ones that are more into it for buying & selling items help us out by making something available that may have not been otherwise. I get enough enjoyment from the vehicles I have to not worry about the ones I've sold or traded away.
