  1. I've never seen a diff in this chassis before, its a pretty cool mod. Interesting that someone went to all that effort yet didn't fit bearings.
  2. I did this exact same mod to my wild one a couple of years go. Its still going strong on brushless power & after several beach runs.
  3. They all live on the shelf but I try to run them all.
  4. Look like RC channel shocks. I have a set on my Ranger, pretty good quality. I've had them a few years & no leaks.
  5. Paint in the sand super letters instead. The good year logo wears off when running after a while.
  6. I needed a hard to find gearbox shaft once. I cut the shank off of a drill bit.
  7. As said above, the diff will fail quickly without it. If you do make one up then use hardened steel.
  8. Wheel base & shock layout is close enough on the Optima. The battery is mounted length ways in the Shogun, would the Shogun body be wide enough to fit cars where that battery is mounted width ways? Need someone to measure the width.
  9. I've fitted those on mine. Perfect fit, way more traction than the original tyres & the softer side walls improve the handling.
  10. You could drill out the grub screw, but that could be very tricky with the motor in that position. The other option is to carefully lever or pull the pinion off. Once off there will be no tension on the grub screw & it should unscrew alowing you to fit a new one. I've had to do this before myself. If you are carefull you wont damage anything.
  11. I've got three models with this gearbox, RS500 & two Rockys. Seems a real pain at first but then you get used to it it pretty easy.
  12. MCI racing do a good repro set of the integra decals.
  13. I have both the Javelin & Scorpion remakes. Fantastic to drive superb & build quality. I fitted the belt drive when building the Javelin, although chain drives are great for nostalgia the belt is much better for running.
