  1. About a year or so there was a guy posting a movie filmed with a camera he put on a some sort of steady cam advice. Now I can't find the post. It was some kind of handle that made it possible for him to stand up straight, yet film the cars on a ground level... The movie was of some kind of rallycars in slow-motion, really cool vid. Hope some-one understand what I'm looking for. Thanks guys.
  2. Thanks, That's some nice videos there, but the quality is just killing them. Doesn't Kyoshopeople run their car like we do with the Tamiyas? Are there no enthusiast that run their scorpions on the beach as I run my Sand Scorcher? When I look around I get the feeling that most people collecting vintage Kyoshos are old racing folks.
  3. I been looking for a while now, but everytime a video of a kyosho runner is posted it's some one who stands up and films the car from above as it runs up and down the street a couple of times, (well that's the worst kind of movie, sometimes there are a little better). I'm not trying to put anyone down. I'm just asking if there is any videos out there featuring vintage kyoshos, where they put a little love in to the filming, and finding a good location? I would love to see a Kyosho scorpion on the beach.
  4. Ok. Thanks Here's the link: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/sig_member.asp?id=190
  5. Ok. So the ones that want in can still get excepted by you guys? Cool.
  6. When I'm trying to let some one in to my SIG I get this message: "Sorry but tamiyaclub.com is currently locked to additions and amendments while we carry out system maintenance.

Is it simply because I'm not a paying member at the moment? or is there something wrong?
  7. I believe that one thing that's a big part of the lunchbox success Is the price. It's an icon and a pretty cheap model.
  8. Thanks for the tip but I think I'll just hack up the radiobox, budget and time saving, it's a re-re so I don't have any trouble destroying it. I'm also a bit worried about interference if I'll add more aluminum, I thought I'd have money to upgrade all my models to 2.4 ghz but stuff came up that where more important.
  9. I guess that could work. Do you know the price for shipping it here?
  10. I'm thinking of loosing the radiobox on my SS 2010 in favor for an alternative chassis. I wanna do this so I can use a stick pack instead of a hump. So now I'm looking for a Chassis that fit this purpose well. Any ideas what might work best?
  11. well The main problem is that I really like thr looks of the clod with the lights
  12. My son keeps rolling he's clod and the lights keep braking and falling of (I do this to). We are getting tired of replacing them. We have the standard bodies and the standard lights on the "rollbar", is there any other options? I mean the lights on the ww2 is great they actually protect the body from damage and can take allot of abuse. we wanna keep the looks as close to the original as possible.
  13. Ok, then the last owner did a great job painting it.
  14. did the nitro bootle come in silver on the first one?
  15. As simple as that. thanks for the answer and tips.
  16. I just got me self another Wild Willy 2. It's a used one and after I looked it over I found some differences. First I noticed that the mold on nr 1 has ABS under the numbers but nr 2 don't. The most annoying thing is the body mount looking part that holds the "battery lid" in place only have one hole and are slightly shorter on number 2. So my batteries are to long to fit. Anybody know why this is?
  17. I know, this part is pretty funny: "Speed was low on both, but the much lighter and more agile Double Dare could beat a Clod in any race." How could it beat the clod buster when it most likely fell over in the first turn, you don't win races if you're truck is upside down. "The Clod's large tires made it a better car crusher and a bit more realistic, but the Double Dare could usually win a looks contest and had suspension that was actually functional." Well how could a nissan truck beat the clod in a looks contest? I really don't get it. The clod is the monster of all trucks. Some one must have bribed the judges.
  18. So it is as I thought a fan making more of the double dare then it really is. The clod seams to be indestructible compared to the DD. Who fall over as son as you get it to turn properly and the gearboxes is like butter.
  19. I came across this article on wikipedia. I have only heard **** about Kyoshos double dare before. So I was a bit surprised that the writer of the article states that it's supposed to be the better monster truck compared to the Clod Buster. So this question is to you guys who was in the game back then: Was it really seen as the better truck back in the days? Owning a Hi-rider corvette and a Clod buster I have very hard to believe the double dare was better in any way.
  20. I say keep it stock, but, go to a place with allot of space and nothing to hit. Then place the kid in your lap and let him try it out, if he comes near anything dangerous tell him to stop, if he doesn't you take over, then talk to him why he should stop. Pretty soon you can put up simple tracks and race each other.
  21. Well all of these factors is are things you have to take in consideration if you want to win. A great picture of a popular model in a suiting environment will take votes from a less good picture of the same model. We're all free to post models and get a reputation as a good modeler and make friends here on TC. We might not got the money or the skills to do it, but we are free to do it if we can.
  22. I have changed my radio batteries, if that doesn't help I guess it's the receiver. I might have to place it next to the battery and hope that the batt keeps it hot enough. Another Idea is to make a "sleeping bag" for the part of the radio where the batteries are. I'm quite keen on fixing this problem as it looks like it's two more months of this cold weather here.
  23. really deep. check out this about 3 mins in.
  24. That sounds very reasonable, I plugged in the charger in the radio so let's hope it works all the way next time.
