  1. Hi, did you sell all your holiday buggy parts. im looking for a set of rear wheels if you still have any rolling around. i melted mine trying to remove some tyre glue with acetone 😩 Cheers
  2. Hi, does anyone out there have a couple of inner halves, or the complete rear wheels for an original holiday buggy. i melted mine trying to remove tyre glue with acetone, bad move. many thanks.
  3. Hi, Im interested in the Blackfoot body, would prefer a F150 Ranger, but would consider converting one of these.
  4. Graffiti remover from Screw Fix works a treat on white plastic bodies,just stripped a 30 year old Sand Scorcher, and works nicely on polycarbonate bodies too. http://www.screwfix.com/p/de-solv-it-graffiti-remover-1ltr/45293 Used on both with very satisfying results. £8.39 for 1 litre.
  5. The Savage spur gear is GPM racing products DSAV1051T Ebay number 321087693613
  6. Pictures won't upload for some reason, I will try again later.
  7. Thought I would show you my solution. This is the HPI 51 tooth spur gear I bought off Ebay £4. The other part is the Kyosho BS-41 diff bearing carrier.I bolted them together back to back, then drilled the four 3mm bolt holes. then glued the bearing carrier withsome epoxy glue, I used JB Weld, bolted them back together and left to cure for a couple of days. This shows they are a perfect match. These are the 2 parts used, under a tenna forthem both. Here is the reassembled diff, I had to shim the bearings a bit, as the offset is deeper on the new spur gear. In the diff holders Bach on the chassis, mesh is perfect. I will let you know how I get on after I have given her a test run,
  8. Hi, thanks very much, I will take a look now.
  9. Just been getting a Landmax 1, and it has the age old problem of the spur gear (the red one - GT-1) being stripped. On removal, I found that the clutch had desintergrated in the hands of the previouse owner. Must have jammed, then tore the teeth off the spur. Can't find one for love nor money. Heres my plan, use a HPI Savage or Hellfire spur, you can get a 51 tooth and it is 52mm diameter, the GT-1 is 53mm. I then plan to machine the ,teeth off the original, down by about 8mm. Then machine the center of the HPI spur so I am left with what is efectivly a ring gear. Then I will epoxey glue the two parts together Thats the plan anyway, what do you think?
  10. Looking to purchase a nice looking McLaren mp4/27 2012 shell off that well know auction site. http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1423.l2649 Do you think I will be able to make it fit my F103 chassis? I know the battery positions are different, but I was hoping that in general, the shells would be a similar fit. Thanks.
  11. Hi, just reliving my child hood with a recently purchased original Sand Scorcher. All in all, its in really good nick, body done in box art. I like the look of rear suspension sitting lower, giving a more realistic scale look, any tips on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated.
