  1. Thanks for the reply back.
  2. Thanks Please report how they perform. I just added a set of oil shocks all round on my Grasshopper from my bits & pieces. Did these come from RC Mart???
  3. I agree mighty expensive. BUT these bolt straight up. I think YOU-G did some but they are vintage and will be even more expensive. My question is are they any good? Are the spring rates suited for li po ?? I will get a set at some point.
  4. Aaargh SORRY i thought it was DT03 not DF03. I need my glasses. My Fault!!!
  5. No they will be too short. With the re re Hi Caps they are the same shocks front & Rear with some limiters in the front on the inside of the shafts to reduce travel. Rear are aprox 100mm and front are 95mm aprox. Get 2 sets of them use the rears all round with some limiters up the front and use the left over ones on a ORV chassis or something else is my advice. I was lucky and got 4 sets of Re re Hi caps from RC Mart before they sold out but still weren't cheap i thought !!!!
  6. From what I can remember they take standard Tamiya bearings.
  7. I have one by Wasp i think. well made but bar was too stiff...
  8. Is the buggy off the ground on the shelf so no weight is on the arms?? All my cars sit on spray paint can lids!!!
  9. Ok guys I have bought a nice Ford Sierra Cosworth body set and a new touring car Chassis. To complete this project I would like a Turbo sound Module . I have seen some listed on E bay with 10 different engine sounds but dont list the sounds. Anyone bought one with a Turbo sound in it? Any help would much appreciated. Thanks
  10. Just a quick Math check and that is aprox 30min a hit. Way too long no matter what motor. Its 4wd so its even harder on the motors with the drive train lag and added grip of a 4wd. Try running it for 10 min at a time and it should hold together just fine with a cool down between runs The heat will kill any motor . ( Brushes and comm will glaze up, or winding's will short out or brushes will drop off or brush springs will get really soft. Maybe ALL of those RIP death sentences at once) I run my brushless and brushed cars to a heat value not a min value. Some times 10 min or 5 min depending on weather, Track, Car type and how much performance I'm chasing out of it.... Just my Thoughts!!!!!!!
  11. Im lucky enough to have a NIB which i built. Quite rare indeed...
  12. Interesting Topic. I do recall the News Bulletin Add in Car Action stating that the Thunder Shot TQ,d and filled the top 3 spots in a American race. The Thunder Shot was also the first Tamiya to feature Nylon components such as Arms and front bumper. Had no bump steer and fewer drive line parts to the Hot Shot platform. A very capable racer it was and still is in vintage. They should have dropped the word "SHOT" as it is nothing like a Shot and shared no components in my opinion.
  13. Ummm Cant recall mine like that. Are the belt fences the right way round? The pulleys the right way around? Just a guessing here.......
