  1. This is one I'll probably never own, much as I'd like to. It would be nice to spend a bit of time with the chassis from one of these to really get to know how it goes together and what makes it tick. I'm sure sooner or later some spawny get will come in here with a story about how he found one in a skip bin, or someone came up to him at a meet once and said, would you like this? I've lost interest. You know, just another in the long cavalcade of never happens to me moments.
  2. ****...Tamiya store closed? How will we survive? Seriously though, the Govt (govt's, state level too) down here aren't doing much, just dancing around the edges of the problem. Probably won't do or force anything precipitate until forced to by numbers that may well be exponential. I'm a teacher, with two fairly healthy but elderly parents, that I live with. Thankfully I'm in a self contained granny flat, that helps, but I'm wondering what I should do next. Seriously now, everyone in here stay safe and well.
  3. I have a couple of RC projects I can get done, I think I have everything I need. Social distancing or isolating is actually fine by me. I don't have a problem with other people, but I do come away from most interactions wondering if the other person thought I was a bit of a twat. It's just how I am I guess. It seems to be gathering apace here, so stay safe and well everyone.
  4. Great pics once again, looks like it was a good time.
  5. Depends on the parts I guess. I just have a plastic container from those stor=pak wall storage things, I chuck all of my extra screws, nuts, etc in that. It can be a pain to find things rustling around in it, but it's not a huge issue. Also in my stor-pak unit are boxes with servos/servohorns ect, motors, escs, shocks, and a bunch of other things separated out. This makes things sound organised but.... it isn't really. There is still crap everywhere. I haven't put a recent picture of my workbench/work area as....it's a bit of a whorehouse at the moment.
  6. This is very true. I found over time that eventually all the breakable and dangerous things got moved to places out of the reach of children. But there was always that one thing you forgot from time to time.
  7. No worries. I have the TBLE 02 in a couple of my cars, they go ok, haven't had any issues , other than calibrating them which is a bit of a pain. Keep in mind I'm not racing or running high powered stuff with these esc's. Some good info in this thread now.
  8. Ummm, not if it still works. Set it all up and see. Pretty sure I have a couple of them in different cars and they go fine, for higher turn motors at least. Hobbywing 1060's should be cheap and plentiful on Ebay if you do want to change it out. They are a good esc.
  9. Make sure that you buy more cars that turn into major repair/restoration projects to put on the pile of major repair/restoration projects that you already have sitting around and haven't got to doing yet.
  10. Take your time, clean em up a bit, repair what's needed (ebay is your friend) set them up however you want to, they're your cars after all.
  11. I speak for all of us when I say, we are fluent in typo.
  12. I have friends over there and many of them are doing what they can to avoid other people now.
  13. I'm considering editing my last post, too much whinging, plus I do actually like fixing things.
