  1. I would have thought any of the aftermarket covers would work?, I often see them for the lunchbox, can't remember for sure but worth looking into.
  2. In real cars of this type, there's no weight on the front?, and all the engine weight over the wheel. Certainly, in a Volkswagen beach buggy/ frame/sandrail , I could see the benefits of longer rears.
  3. I'm with you on this, I thought I upgraded my brushless QD with a 8200kv motor 2435 size can instead of the 2030 size 7800kv hobbywing ezrun. The EZRUN won hands down. Bigger motor was topping out at 30mph whereas the EZRUN pushed it past 40 easily and had loads left... hobbywing for the win.
  4. I had an engine all detailed for it as well with LEDs in the exhaust stacks but never fitted it, I'll have to try and find a picture.
  5. Mine did have a body for a while. It jumped well. I think I was running silver cans here, but I might be wrong. @stamatis sorry didn't mean to hijack your thread but this chassis is underrated and needs more exposure.
  6. Depends how much you want to turn I suppose?. This would destroy small shrubs at 30mph so you don't really need to turn. Lol. You could have 6ws as well if needed, but I found a bit more power to the back end would help it lose traction at the rear. Who needs turning anyway?? 😂 You can do interesting donuts on loose gravel but it'll flip over when it finds some grip unless you have the reaction time of a 6 year old boy!!!
  7. I ran 3 brushless motors and 3 batteries just to complicate things and then a spaghetti mess of various "Y" leads joining it all up to one receiver. So I could be using 9s lipo but still only running at 11.1volts. or 6s but only 7.4 volts. I used to run 2x2s on the front and a 3s on the back just to make the handling a bit more interesting. Lol
  8. I know, right? And he's using sticks!!!!. He was 6 years old then but he'd already been piloting a 50mph DT-02 before he could *walk so his skills were way ahead of his years. *I think we can add talk to that. (Before he could walk or talk) I couldn't get it on 3 wheels without flipping it. " Here Dad, hold my sippy cup, I'll show you how to do it!!". Lol
  9. Way ahead of you here. Although mine wasn't ever finished properly.
  10. RC'ing around, arsing around, Had to change his name to the RC Scotsman to conform with YouTube correctness.
  11. Or you could fit something like this and then any battery you like. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/115640050189?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=cNG2HvIKQqq&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=AmMhQ-pWTKq&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Not sure if this is an exact copy of the original but there are some that will let you fit a square battery in there. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/354923455403?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=_qv-enajtjw&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=AmMhQ-pWTKq&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY 2nd link shows a square hardcase fitted to a lunchbox (oops, brain fart) which isn't the same chassis is it?, Only the gearbox is the same as the lunchbox? Ignore this post, it's early in the morning, carry on as you were.
  12. I don't know where you are, but I did take the kids to a toy museum?/ scalextric / train track/ RC track / flight SIM place in Daventry, Northamptonshire. Was a really great day out but when I looked at going again after coronavirus and all that, the ticket prices has increased beyond an acceptable level for a family day out!!. Great little place though, stuffed with Lego, cars, trains and toys.
  13. We definitely need a 1/14th scale category 😃 so I can be 1st,errrr, I mean because the thread has gathered a lot of interest and quick drive cars are still popular and plentiful but offer very little competition to the true hobby grade 1/10 cars. I see I've lost a few places on the board so I'll be setting up another run with the quick(est) drive, soon....... But I demand a new category, and start line girls to wave a flag, cold drinks served by the start line girls, and a trophy for the winner. Me,...presented by the start line/ beer waitresses/ trophy presentation (you're getting your money's worth here) girls. Perhaps we should have a bloke as well for equality purposes and to lift heavy stuff like beer and trophies? Shall I put it to a vote?.
  14. *I'd say add more holes!. Ferrous oxide performance pack, rust lightening theory. Less weight more great. *Advice not to be taken seriously and certainly not for a lunchbox chassis but this aluminium one in the link demonstrates that you don't need a solid chassis. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/374255861321?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=vf6vjp9xr--&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=AmMhQ-pWTKq&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
