  1. Put a small shallow screw in the release tab just where it catches the chassis tub.. Not too long as it will be difficult to release.
  2. Yep you had too much oil in so piston couldn't move freely in the body. Glad you've sorted it...
  3. I replaced the one my BH with one from an astute, don't have a pic sorry as I sold it a long time ago. From memory I cut the original away leaving enough to bolt the astute tower.
  4. Be good if it comes with the clear screen.... And agree needs the alternative stripes.
  5. I've sold loads over the years, many abroad, some do keep cropping up from time to time especially some of my old brats as I did some in unique paint schemes so easy to spot. I did get luck recently when I spotted my old xr311 on ebay, I knew instantly it was my old car, was used in the tamiya101 dvds, I was lucky enough to buy it back and arranged collection over postage. Thought it was amusing that the seller said he painted and restored it. Didn't burst his bubble, bonus was it came with radio gear this time and a kit box as I didn't originally sell with them. Still in mint condition and not selling this time round. A lot of the cars now in my collection are staying and not sold many recently... At one point I did discretely etch zakspeed on the body so if you see that will be one of my old builds...
  6. Once again sorry for the delay, I used to have presence on TC every day. Only dip in now and again, anyways less of the waffle and pics attached for reference
  7. Sorry for the late reply I've been away with work. Just jumped into loft and gone through my decals pile. Found the envelope (dated 2012!!) sorry to say no red, I have standard blue, yellow, and lime green. Soz...
  8. I don't think so I'll have a look for you
  9. Stickerbod on here originally made those stickers. I bought a few sets off him at the time (never used them though) Don't think he's active anymore and I remember seeing a post that says he wasn't doing them any more. But still maybe worth a shot...
  10. Not sure why there is a thing for placing the servo centrally, you lose the Akerman principle and it was one thing the Frog was great at was the way it turned. I raced a brand new Frog back in 1984/5 and it was brilliant compared to the opposition. You have to remember what was around at the time, SRB's holiday buggy grasshopper Brat. It was only Tamiya at the time. I only remember seeing one Kyosho later on. Tamiya was king back then. I did really well racing that Frog. Its only in 12 months from then that more and more stuff started to come out and compete. I never really liked the monster beetle or blackfoot but have had them in the past. And own a few now. In the day you used to be able to buy shims to reduce the slop as it does get worse with use due to the plastics rubbing against the ally. But so what its a fun vehicle and needs to be treated as such... cracking design and the orv chassis was way ahead of its time when it came out... just a classic vintage model that has stood the test of time.
  11. Yeah, OCD you're correct original mounty tyres while interchangeable with Blackfoot, they were a much stiffer compound...
