  1. I'd love to see the Kyosho Big Brute get the re-re treatment. Years ago I had one in great shape and stupidly traded it away.
  2. Tamiya Bruiser for me. Got to drive one when I was around 11 years old and have wanted one ever since.
  3. Very nice. Let us know how the racing goes. I haven't raced mine since 2003 and sometimes think about getting it back out there again.
  4. No way! I'm keeping the Fox for myself! At least that's what I'm currently telling myself. Anyone ever try adding some internal limiters to the front shocks on the Falcon to see if that helps with the understeer, or maybe adding some weight to the front?
  5. Unfortunately, the person that owned it before me had painted all 4 wheels and shocks. First red, then blue. I stripped the shocks, but the left front wheel melted while being stripped. I had a spare front wheel from a parts Falcon that I replaced it with and then I partially stripped the left rear wheel before I lost interest and sold it to Blake.
  6. Blake, I do have a set that you can have. I'll be racing at 4 Seasons down in Olympia on the 30th and can bring them with me.
  7. I may have some of the yellow shock mounts from a parts Falcon that I have. I'll take a look and will get back to you.
  8. Here's the shorty pack I'd go with. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__28647__Turnigy_nano_tech_Shorty_4200mah_2S2P_65_130C_Hardcase_Lipo_Pack_ROAR_APPROVED_US_Warehouse_.html Then something like this for a motor. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=71364
  9. Looks good Blake. Will look even better once you get those yellow wheels from me.
  10. Thanks for the compliments guys. The only electronics in it right now are the throttle servo, mechanical ESC and motor.
  11. I went out to my garage to have a look and had forgotten that I let my brother borrow my shorty pack for a race last weekend. In looking at the Super Champ though, a shorty lipo will fit with room to spare. HobbyKing has 4200mah lipos (they're about 4" long) for a good price. Combine that with a brushless 21.5 motor and you should get some good run times provided you gear it correctly.
  12. Maybe a shorty lipo will fit in the stock location. Tonight I'll see if my shorty lipo fits into my Super Champ and will let you know.
  13. Wanted to share a pic of my first Tamiya restoration. This was given to me by the son of my mom's friend around 20 years ago. When I received it the car was missing the body, rims, tires and some front suspension pieces. The car sat in it's original box in my closet until I discovered eBay back in 2001. Up until eBay came along I never thought I'd be able to find the missing pieces. Now several years (and several dollars) later it's been restored to it's former glory, without using any re-re pieces. I even managed to get the original mechanical ESC working. After the restoration it left my possession for a while (stupidly traded it away), but it is now back with me.
  14. I recently picked up a Tamiya Fox that I plan on using for a runner. It's in good shape overall with the exception of the hex driveshafts and outdrives. Has anyone ever found driveshafts and outdrives from a different vehicle that will fit?
  15. Guys, I found something at my local hardware store that's mainly used as a graffiti remover. I noticed on the bottle that it says that it works on lexan, so I picked up a bottle and used it on an old XX4 body I had. Sure enough, the paint came off and the body stayed clear and flexible. I'm going to try it on my Avante body next.
