  1. Interesting to see this thread as I logon after a busy time, I’ve been thinking about an all out Bashing Monster that is ridiculously powered and bullet proof. The Arrma Outcast has caught my eye as something I could see myself going nuts with
  2. What’d we get through - 12 tanks? That OS really wants to go mate. I stripped my carb again last night, gave it a flush and gentle blow out, some more of that “grease” came out so hopefully that was the issues I was happening with mine, will test it today
  3. We'll get onto that engine break in soon mate, Now I've got 2 Reds Scuderias that need doing as well
  4. I think shipping this to Aus will kill my chance at this

    A couple of classics for sure, I’m a massive fan of the Marui kits
  6. I picked up my Sakura M4 from Hearns Hobbies in Melb, good value too IMO
  7. They did dust off the Fox chassis moulds for a 1 run model, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they did the same here
  8. Yes couldn’t agree more on tyres, I’ve seen people chasing set up with toe, camber, spring rates, roll centre adjustments etc, trying to get their car to do a certain thing, when they have the wrong tyre or compound fitted. Tyres will make up about 80% of a good set up imo
  9. I race 1/8 Nitro, both buggy and truggy, and if my droop is not set correctly, both front and rear, to suit the conditions and grip levels, the vehicles are very hard to drive fast. The kits have the adjustments built in, so yep it plays a part and has effect.
  10. I’m struggling to understand why droop is not for buggies? It plays a significant role in BOTH on-road and off-road applications.
  11. Yeah they are basically the same as a silver can. It’s why I bought them for my Clod, wanted black cans and zero timing. If they are cheap on eBay then that’s not an issue, but if they are asking the same or near genuine prices then that’s an issue.
  12. I would suggest that bagged will be fake, Genuine would be in a box for sure. I bought 2 fakes (knowing that they were) and both come in bags from AliExpress
  13. For something a little out of the box, I can recommend the 3Racing Sakura M4 too. A belt drive 4wd M chassis is a pretty cool thing to have zipping around. And really good value at the moment.
  14. I have this hung up in my hobby workshop 😂
  15. How’d the wheelbase go? Did you need to make “adjustments”?
  16. @KalEl63 has tried dying an ORV chassis before, all that happened was it warped in the heat, but didn’t take the dye I’m pretty sure
  17. When I saw an Alloy Prop Shaft go into stock at RCMart I had to grab it, because they have been hard to find for a non ridiculous price, so added in a couple sets of wheels, and some hex’s and body posts for my 3 Racing M4 mini
  18. Measure how long they are eye to eye, then search eBay using the measurement. There should be plenty of alloy options available
  19. To be clear I don’t want a drifter for this project, but I hate buying kits and having spare bodies, so I’m looking for a chassis kit only. I can get the drift kit here in Aus for about half of the SR price, so it’s a consideration. All other chassis kits are far more than I want to spend on this project.
  20. Got a project in mind, what’s the deal with the Drift Spec Chassis? Is it different to a grip car or does it just come with drift tyres?
