  1. I built my MST CMX chassis today. Impressive build. Pretty darn good quality on carbon infused plastic! Manual had couple of vague areas where visual graphics Descriptions were a bit odd. Need to source my magnetic mounts now! Then get busy painting the Brat. Will probably opt for gold ole Box Art Red
  2. i like tour lowered windows! Brilliant I noticed the decals are hard to come by presently. guess will have order from MCI @a.w.k. how did you mount the ABS body? Magnetic mounts?
  3. So I opted for the MST CMX.. for cone I figured I wouldn’t be a Tamiya fan boy ;).. My CC01 auction continues to get bids.. I’m a bit surprised.. but hey I’ll take it.. more play $
  4. Thank you for that ... decisions decisions I have both in the cart .. can’t make up my mind lol
  5. I put my CC01 on eBay and already recouped what I paid for it with 4 days left. Crazy! I found a place that is selling the MST CMX for $189.. not bad! I would need to pick up a motor / esc. The CC02 from Tower would cost me $225 and I would need bearings, which would be another $20.. but then I could sell the body and tyres for maybe $40. So almost the same. Difference being Tamiya familiarity versus a much better build rig
  6. @a.w.k. very nice I needed. Both looK great. I think I’m leaning towards using a different chassis. The MST CMX seems reasonably priced. Are parts easy to come by?
  7. I’m not worried about the body mounts.. it’s that hunk of plastic that’s part of the tub lol..
  8. Well issue number 2 has come up.. While the Brat Body does fit the CC01 chassis.. the front tub / wall of the CC01 chassis is not covered by the Brat body. Make is look really odd. So I think I need to consider another chassis. I don't want anything expensive, so perhaps CC02? I am open to non Tamiya as well. Wheel / Tyre in picture as temporary place holders while I sort my Sand Blaster 915s.
  9. I see, so the tyre will cover the lip of the rim... not necessarily a bad thing.. will help protect the rim. On the Brat rims.. do you only trimmed the back star flat and carved the slot for the pin? You didn’t remove anything from the front side.. eg the “cone” to make room for axle?
  10. If the centre ring needs trimming won’t be an issue. Just wanted to make sure they are true 1.55. The Brat rooms would be ideal.. they look like they need quite a bit of modding in a lathe.... I’d appreciate to see what you did
  11. I’m doing a build of CC01 with Subaru Brat body.. figured I’d make it a proper 4WD. For nostalgic reasons I want to use the Sand Blaster 915 tyres. I ran into a snag with the kit Brat rims. CC01 axles are too short. So I was searching and found these frm I’m doing a build of CC01 with Subaru Brat body.. figured I’d make it a proper 4WD. For nostalgic reasons I want to use the Sand Blaster 915 tyres. I ran into a snag with the kit Brat rims. CC01 axles are too short. So I was searching and found these from RC4WD.. https://store.rc4wd.com/OEM-6-Lug-Stamped-Steel-155-Beadlock-Wheels-White_p_7608.html So my question is, are the Sand Blaster 915 true 1.55s? Will I have any issue mounting them?
  12. Btw.. you make know this already.. denatured alcohol and tamiya’s plastic don’t like each other.. I used to drop my gear diff casing jar and let it sit.. when I went to reassemble it had swollen in some parts.. so a friend told me to use Isopropyl.
  13. I’m in Nevada these days, I can help! A while back a client asked me to buy a floor sealant in Nevada and ship it to him in CA because CA has banned it! I’m surprised they didn’t start with all the other solvents first that are available at Home Depot.. eg Laquer Thinner, Acetone, ... Denatured Alcohol First doesn’t make sense.
