  1. I sold my li-po batteries when I stopped racing and have only used ni-mh batteries since. The extra weight helps the crawlers and the Mad Bull will only accept certain li-po cells anyway. Never really felt the need to go back.
  2. I made the error of selling my original one. Time to rectify that mistake.
  3. Agreed, when I buy RC4WD parts, I always feel I am buying peace of mind.
  4. Yeah, you are right. Sorry bud, my bad. Have you thought about Losi Mini T shocks? From what I remember when I raced my GB02, the shocks were very similar length to those of the Losi.
  5. Have a look at Tamico. They are showing #40539 in stock at €15 per pair.
  6. Not sure if you have tried already but, the Carisma M14 has a wheelbase of 175 mm which would scale up to 2450 mm in 1:1 Scale. The thing is, they are quite thin on the ground these days.
  7. Awesome, thank you so much for your reply. I will pick up the Tamiya set.
  8. Hi all, I am in the process of reducing as much slop as possible from the M06 and have got to the steering. I am thinking that aluminum upgrade might be a good idea but there are quite a few to choose from. GPM, Jazrider, Yeah Racing, 3 Racing and of course Tamiya own. What are the opinions about the best option? Is there one that stands out as the best or are they all about the same? Thanks in advance for any help.
  9. Loving the new build but can I make a suggestion. The cup racer was such a little warrior, I think rebuilding it with all the parts that went through the enduro (tyres and all) and giving it pride of place on the shelf, is something that it has certainly earned. In years to come, just looking at it will put a smile on your face every time. Just a thought.
  10. That is a brilliant read. I have never even thought about a tt-02 but now I am planning on picking one up. That blue chassis looks awesome. I think a drifter is on the cards.
  11. The conversion kit that is basically the centre skid plate drilled for Maverick Scout gearbox, pushed the motor higher and raised the centre of gravity. I really liked the lightweight handling of the stock gearbox/ motor so I switched back. Lots of other owners have done the 540 mod and love it but it just wasn’t for me. I concentrated on improving the axle internals and steering. I went so far as to release a steel diff spool! If you get one and want to do the conversion, look for HSP gearbox on eBay as it is exactly the same as the Maverick one but considerably cheaper. You can get the steel internal gears for that gearbox either from HSP or for the Redcat Gen7. Also, let me know if you are converting your truck as you can have my centre skid plate, I won’t be needing it again.
  12. Managed to upload the picture of the accessories. Still need to stain the wood and paint the styrene before putting them all together. Some are already done and some half finished.
  13. Thanks Hobgoblin, I got this to drive along with my son who has a pretty capable crawler. I love the FTX, I have never put this much effort into an r/c before. I did try the 540 conversion but switched back to stock as I preferred the 390 motor. For £119 for the rolling chassis, I can’t complain.
  14. I am currently unable to upload the photos of the rifles and accessories but I will post them up when I can.
