  1. Thanks ģuys ...was just a quick look at it...but fancy a play about ...but will just build it up and see how it goes first ....
  2. OK been away busy ,but bug got to me again .. since I last was on my little collection has grown to 9 … but had to even the number out so I went and got myself a novafox ...allways liked the look of these from a few of you guys displays and the box art does do it well …..no pics yet only just got the box …. BUT question on the build …. looking at the set up the rear gearbox ….? ,, am I right in thinking its the same as the hotshot ..? .. if so maybe worth throwing a MIP diff into it ...Is it worth it as I want to allways go above the standard can … ( I already have them here to go into the superhotshot ) but just call it practise to put them in this ..IF its the same model ...
  3. lol..... nice mate ,.... I still love to look at my SuperHotShot think it has the best of all three ...still got to strip to fit the new diff sets I got last year ..
  4. Very nice mate , I do love it when guys go off book and do their own colour , looks great …… been putting it off but the itch is still there for me . may have to scratch it ..
  5. well good news .. as any kit to add onto the already upgrades is a extra .. so I will be putting in for two at first , leading to extra kits later ..
  6. gutted for you ,, as said I had mine in the door with no extra charge , I think they pick things at random to charge who they want ...ahh LOOKS LIKE A FEW OF YOU HAD more than one set , I only had one so was in a jiffy bag .. as you has a box I guess the flag went up to charge you more ..
  7. good news , mine has turned up today ,, FAB,.. bonus is they never charge any import so a billy bargin.....now to start the strip down and rebuild .....
  8. also looks like you have used the flat one and not the step down shape servo arm .. it brings them down a little lower to help with the pull down .. or as some have also used them and put the ball joints under that ,again to lower them down ..
  9. did you turn the bolt all the way tight then a quarter turn back ..? Did you check or replace the gears too as the old maybe worn down if old ones still in box .. I just built one for my monster beetle and was too loose so it would not drive , but then after I done what the info says it seems fine .....
  10. well , went away on a find and come back with link to another who has already done so , not too bad , but it fits mm ok... http://www.rcmt.net/forums/showthread.php?845293-Bush-Devil if you scroll down you see the shell on the bush devil rails ,,same as the MB and BF
  11. Wow ..yep a little short and would look out if shape if i put two together .thanks for the other shell ideas .
  12. just an idea I was looking at , does anyone have both the pumpkin and the blackfoot/ MB .. to show how the shell looks on the rails .. I know its a little shorter but how much .. if anyone can give the total length and the wheel arch to arch size too ....
  13. fun pask weekend .. at last took a few cars out to my work yard plenty of space to open them up and test ... Old school MB with silver can ... a Schumacher procat I got given as a rolling frame, at last with help with what it was and parts its has a shell and buggy wheels and tyres ( not sponge ) .. after market shocks , as the old ones was faulty ..and my new built frog from parts and frames ... wit ha few finishing parts to complete .. running MIP diff and Sport tune can . too see if its anything like they was back in the day . First run was the MB ,, not anyway as fast as I recall , but being old and standard can , what I now think a duff battery never lasted 5 mins ... so will need a strip and work up .. Frog run ,, was OK ,but fast mmm unsure I built it with the cogs and gears as said in the book for ( 49t x 18t x 47t) SPEED ,, along with the MIP diff ( so I can upgrade to a brat shell and large wheels later and still keep it low to the ground .. run wit ha new 1800 batt ..... even my old hornet would light the tyres up and spin out , this don't , unless its me setting up the diff too tight .. but pulls around corners is unreal .. Schumacher ,...well that was a far better car to drive with it 4 wheel drive under power then free wheel when you lift power .. took a while to get used too . then it stopped .. the front arm popped out of the ball joints . lucky clicked back in place and carry on ... in my mind its the faster car .. but I did build it with some cheap parts being and ESC and 15t motor from a FTX kit car ,just to see if it would run before I put any real money into it .... that has the 2100 batt so better run times , of course I want to look into the larger batterys ...amps ... some telling me to go lipo ....lol . but the set up is a long way off as I don't get them out as much so cant see it paying off .......but will see , a fun filled time , just start looking at what way to go with them ..
