  1. Thanks @KEV THE REV I got 2 from Time Tunnel.. Happy now. Ordered bearings. Looking for servos, esc, might just go brushless. Not decided yet.
  2. Thanks, James. wheelspin models are showing it in stock. Might have to reserve one and drive there to get it. Shame on modelsport. They said 8th August, (my birthday) showed it in stock, but no delivery confirmation and now, no stock. Shame on you modelsport. You did exactly the same thing last year with the 6x6 konghead. I got fed up waiting and built my own.
  3. This was showing as in stock when I ordered, now they say stock is expected in October????. No explanation yet, poor show modelsport.
  4. A couple more weeks until the snack box is released.
  5. My 6WD Tamiya would put the outcast to shame, wish I hadn't sold it now, might have to build another. Been offered a aluminium diff upgrade from the ARRMA distributer. Outcast owners, do a wheelie for for than 100meters and try not to explode your diff.
  6. Make that one more diff, this one was built and fitted at modelsport, this is my 2nd battery pack since then. At the weekend I ran one pack and the tyre exploded, so I swapped it onto front and glued it and managed to flatten the packs. Today I just melted another diff. I would upload a video but there is far too much foul language. I tried to make another video while I took the batteries out, then realised the exploded diff has ruined my battery as well. More foul language.
  7. I have melted 3 centre diffs, had a tyre explode, rod ends pulled out of suspension arms, bolts loosening off everywhere. Running it on a flat grass football pitch, had it 3 or 4 months and probably been in bits for over a month while waiting for modelsport to sort it out. Modelsport have been very reasonable, but I hate this truck now, want to sell it but cant pass this rubbish onto some other poor soul. Outcast I hate you, the next time you fail me, you are gone. Edit2ADD> I think I have only flattened the battery twice, every other time it has broken and needed returning to house for repair. Arrma built tough, compared to cheese.
  8. Had nothing but trouble with my outcast, not ran a full pack yet without it breaking, and not even bashing hard. Huge disappointment.
  9. Converted my MB to brushless years ago, these gearboxes are tough and 2 speed is cool. Worth messaging Tony to see if he has any that aren't listed, Or just buy a doner car, then decide its too good to strip just for the tub, and keep looking for the tub and also parts to get the doner car running, then buy another car to get the tub and...…….
  10. Tonys Tamiya parts often has them. He is a member here, and has a shop on ebay.
  11. It's 4.20, lol. totally cool build, more details please.
  12. Some more pics here,.. https://www.rcjaz.com/tamiya-57409-star-unit-lunch-box-mini-sw01-p-13925.html https://www.rcjaz.com/tamiya-57409-star-unit-lunch-box-mini-sw01-p-13925.html apologies if these are posted in the other thread.
  13. Arrma have a few interesting vehicles. Just got me a 6s outcast.
