  1. Thats why so many kids these days end up with "Lego Graveyards" as you cant build much else from most kits these days - my boy has loads of Ninjago Lego and most of that is single use. I like the Minecraft Lego though as that does incorporate some creativity if you want to apply it.
  2. Does anyone have a Lego Boost? Would you recommend it?
  3. Maybe one for the future - you are slowly solving every other Tamiya problem - add it to the list I now have 5 CW-01s with your double wishbone front end - seems rude no to! lol
  4. That would be great - being able to quickly swap between Pumpkin and Lunchie shells - a good challenge for you Alberto - all without modifying any parts as always
  5. I am taking my 6 and 3 year olds with the wife so its more for them really - but I will have my eyes open. I would love the bucket wheel Technic excavator - maybe one day!
  6. Anyone going to http://bricklive.co.uk/ this week? I am taking all the family on Thursday - cant wait!
  7. I have just picked up a Monster Racer and am expecting the diff to be junk as its currently riding on Blackfoot tyres. After a bit of Googling I found this thread and it got me thinking about what 2WD gearboxes would fit. For a cheap and cheerful option I might give this a go... http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=178617 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/311479444165?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262446433721?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&var=561248429606&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT For £15 for the gearbox and £15 for some fibre sheet its got to be worth a punt Thoughts Max as you definitely seem to have explored all the avenues?!
  8. 6 days from order placement to arriving at my house via UPS - that was from Holland too! When I ordered it the lead time was 7th June!
  9. Received mine yesterday too and cant wait to install them! As far as I can see these parts will make the CRP front end redundant as this is easier to install, requires no additional special hardware and places the shocks in a much better position - thank you pintopower!!
  10. I have emailed Alberto to see if he is up for the challenge!
  11. Buy one with your eyes open and its not that bad. A guy here bought a 56 plate 230hp one (the one thats £490 per year to tax!) for £1250 - he uses it for track days and its been faultless - he even took it from Norwich to Edinburgh and back for work recently and it never missed a beat. A lot of car for the money!
  12. Yup - just about.. Its only a subtle difference but it is slightly wider... Probably 5mm or more..
  13. I have a CW01 with a set of Wild Willy rims which mimic the look of the standard wheels. I dont think the back spacing is any different to the standard wheels.
  14. Loving this development Alberto! I think the Frog hex adaptors will give the truck a slightly wider rear track so will be a closer match for the wider front track you have created. http://www.rcmart.com/tamiya-53913-frog-2005-wheel-adapter-p-18599.html?cPath=595_744_972 I have both setups at home so will try and have a measure up at some point.
