  1. Nice MGBGT markbt73. I see that the prince of darkness (Lucas) is always busy!
  2. Oh that's too bad. Perfect for small hands but no epa can mean out of control speed for a little one. Maybe a slower turn motor would have solved it too?
  3. I changed over to lipo just because I barely get out to run the my cars and it seemed that every time my NIMH batteries would never hold a charge from sitting for so long. From what I understood at the time was since lipo doesn't have any "charge memory" there was less loss over storage time. Otherwise I much prefer the ease and peace of mind of storing and charging NIMH.
  4. I will be interested how it fits for your 4yr old. My son also has trouble with the tamiya tamtech buggy radio. Reverse is too far of a throw for his little fingers.
  5. You mean these? https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-TAMIYA-SUPERSHOT-Joint-Propeller-Shafts-Pinion-Gear-HOTSHOT-SUPER-TP9-/312014122000
  6. Not sure I can suggest a good stick radio for small hands. I will be following to see what others have to suggest. My wife seems to think a stick radio would be better for our son. About the servo and ESC, you should be able to use them on your new 2.4ghz setup without any hassles. Just plug and play. I assume you have an ESC, if not it may be a good time to get one. There are many reasonable options out there today.
  7. Thanks for that pic Jugular, it confirms everything for me. Will have to look for some packing foam or the sorts in my storage. I still find it strange that Tamiya only mentions using the included foam strip inside the tray to fill a tiny battery gap, but doesn't say anything about the large gap on the sides. I am used to their manuals being fairly thorough.
  8. With Tamiya being so slow to catch on to using Lipo I never would have thought that they would now start making kits that cater to using them This is my first "modern" RC build in quite some time so I guess things have moved on....
  9. Hello everyone, I have been passing my Christmas holiday putting together an MF01X kit with my 3yr old son. It has been sitting in its box unbuilt for quite some time. I am glad that my son has showed interest in putting together the "truck". I have completed the chassis and just need to do up the body. I did an obligatory test run with an old sub-C 6 cell flat pack I had lying around. It doesn't seem to hold much of a charge anymore, but that isn't my main concern right now. When I put the battery in the tray, there is a gap about 1.5cm (see left side on photo). This seems like an awful lot amount of slop that will allow the battery to sway back and forth too much. I double (triple) checked the manual and I used the right parts and tamiya only mentions using foam on the bottom of the tray for correct battery fitment. Everything seems correct, but something tells me it can't be....I checked all over the net and did not find any mention of a similar problem in any other people's builds. Can someone just confirm that this gap is not normal? I am dreading taking apart the whole chassis just to readjust, but I am afraid I may have to go that road. Thanks for any pointers!
  10. These are great along with the Diebels version too. Wish they made just the body sets available...
  11. Just saw the listing on Tamico. Release date 01.11. I was excited until I saw the price :( seems a bit steep...
  12. Now this is the Tamiya I remember! I love it!
  13. It looks to be shaping up nicely. The body sits nicely upon that all familiar ORV chassis.
  14. THanks! I will have to order a pair and try it out.
