  1. I'm in a similar scenario (USA, inexpensive touring car). I've been looking more at the TT02R and Fazer MK2. Not too sure on which one would be better, but I'm leaning toward Tamiya. I'm having a hard time finding the Fazer in stock and it would be nice to build a full kit. It looks to be a decent spec as well. The main thing I've found against the TT02 out if the box is the steering slop, but I think that's somewhat easily fixed. I thought about the Yokomo also but am not as familiar with the brand in general.
  2. Just a FYI - my six sets of shocks came in today. All of them are in new condition and look amazing. The parts seem to be high quality also. I would like to say I look forward to building them, but it's more of a necessary evil in my book. Shock assembly is up there with E-clip installation. Lots of frustration and time and very few good results on the first try lol.
  3. I guess back in 2017 or so Durango was no longer a thing, but it seems as if this guy purchased a bunch of NOS shock sets for the DETC410 touring car. I bought 6 sets at ~ $5/pair including shipping. Great deal for what ought to be some really nice shocks: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Team-Durango-Shock-Damper-Set-DETC410-Universal-1-10-Car-projects-Aluminum-Body/372370146331?epid=1771086450&hash=item56b2fd841b:g:~nsAAOSwMxtbS9qi
  4. Thanks very much. I ended up being able to purchase some JConcepts 1.7" tires which are now on their way.
  5. Truck is looking great! The blue body looks really good as well. Mine was nice and shiny out of the box for a total of three minutes before the first roll over and scratches lol. Hopefully you're a better driver than I am.
  6. Thank you both. I already have the wheels and was looking for something to compliment an Optima clone, so unfortunately 2.2" wheels and tires won't really work.
  7. Thanks all! @ Mad Ax thank you very much; modern tires might be good.
  8. Does anyone know of other options for 1.7" tires other than Kyosho Optima/Javelin? I know the RC10 uses them also, but am looking for something readily available with good wear for general street/dirt/sand. I've heard that some have been able to stretch Hornet tires over 1.7" wheels but these seem to be out of stock everywhere. Any insights appreciated.
  9. Maybe it's just me, but the RTR servo is pretty decent from memory. https://rc.kyosho.com/en/82274.html I think anything that matches or exceeds those specs should be okay.
  10. I have one as well! I got the RTR version in white with the extra cage. It's one of my favorite RCs to run. It takes some patience on power as it tends to roll over at speed, but I think it makes the driving experience more challenging and fun. On a new 2S lipo it's pretty quick with the stock setup. I have had the sliding steering rack bind up with dirt/mud, so watch out for that on the RTR version (kit version comes with different setup). Overall, though, I love this truck. @Chris, yes, it comes with 1.9" beadlocks.
  11. Pardon me asking, but where did you find one? Once I got started in the hobby this was the first car I wanted, but never had. It would be nice to have one some day down the road!

    Sorry, I'm not too sure about that. I don't have a GHII and also couldn't find the specs on those tires.

    Ultima pro tires

    Not sure if these would work with what you had in mind, but I used these on my Ultima Pro: https://www.amainhobbies.com/schumacher-mini-spike-2.0-front-2wd-buggy-tire-2-yellow-schu6850/p701654?v=697591 These should work as well: https://www.amainhobbies.com/schumacher-slim-rib-spike-2.0-front-2wd-buggy-tire-2-yellow-schu6847/p701642?v=697588 They should both fit the original 50mm rims.
  14. Some battery trays, bevel gear sets, outdrives, transmitter monitor sets, M3 hardware, O-rings, charger adapter, and Optima wheels.
