  1. Get a high speed motor fan, been using these fans for years.
  2. I kind of have the same question about 420 suspension upgrade for my EVO.7.
  3. I was about to ask as I have a NIB body set.. Looking for parts and came across this (the good ol' days)
  4. MT44 is very light even with 3 AAA batteries let alone a lipo sack. The M12 feels great also. @Jonathon Gillham,, I forgot the other recievers that are compatible, will look for one or two or three... As I want to hold 3 more models in the TX (417, 201, 501), feel like my EVO.7 is spoiled
  5. I love my MT-44 w/ RX-482 Combo (Best I have ever had). Only knock is this RX seperately is expensive and I can't justify buying one for my other Touring Car/ Buggy.
  6. I know, I know. Since the apocalypse and no gambling (Vegas shutdown), weekly funds are abundant and the price did not hurt as bad.
  7. Get the DB01 or DB01RRR (if you could find one), as both can bash with covered gear/belts. The chassis are reinforced plastic but you can use TRF501X/502X/503 and 511 parts like A-arms, uprights, hubs, belts, Gear diffs, alloy hop ups etc. I have a 501X and never get worried about parts because the DB01 has so many parts available. Here is my old 501X (Raced at prepped tracks only)
  8. They brought me the wrong kit (TamiyaUSA) so it will be returned and it cost me $15.00, the kit was free shipping!!
  9. Just got this from TamiyaUSA but it was the wrong kit.. They really goofed this up at the warehouse. Just got back from UPS store and it cost me $15.00 to send it back, it was free shipping on the kit I bought.
  10. Yes, but it has to have a better diff and slipper like the re-re Super Astute... I remember buying my 3rd Monster Racer on a clearance sell back in 1991 for $99.99 . still have the box.
  11. A few now after purchasing Super Astute from Tamiya USA... Find my two sets of TRF Dampers (off 501X and 201, these 2 have Big Bores) Take out TTC in King Cab (will put it in SA) Build SA when it arrives Put Ampro parts and SA trans in King Cab. Tweek and sort TB EVO.7
  12. Well, finally caved and bought this from Tamiya USA. Never owned a Super Astute so it should be a fun build. Should I use gear putty for the diff??
  13. You kinda answered your own question. Both tweaks are normal, but I would not keep doing it because of possibly damaging that Diff. Remember Thorp is an improvement but not bulletproof. I remember running mine slightly loose to slip on starts for races on dirt. These are old IMEX Dirt Dawg pins mounted on King Blackfoot wheels (chrome). I only run these on dirt/ low grass.
