    What ever happened to Ben beefmuffin?

    Hey @mongoose1983, @NWarty, et al... yeah @chickenman242tk is right I've been held in a choke hold by work for a little while (that part is a joke). I'm still working to get back on my feet though, make good on my responsibilities to some of you, and generally have a life again soon. Hopefully soon means actually soon... I'm doing my best.

    A tale of two Scorchers - RC project for 2017

    Hey @mongoose1983 this looks great! I haven't even logged onto the board in months b/c of non-stop work pressure... but am working my way back to 'normal'. I'm not sure if you remember but I actually have a bunch of stuff of yours sitting in my den waiting the lifespan of the average gerbil so far for me to send it down to you. I'm going to try to do something about that soon. :‑/

    LOL just mute the new video and play this one in the background. Corny voice-over achieved!

    Everyone at Tamiya is like "Oh I thought Carl was taking care of that." and Carl's like "Wait, what? I've been huffing a little too much PS-1 lately. My bad."

    Monster Beetle re-release #58618

    So you're having trouble using the CVDs with the MIP diff? @Pintopower have you had any issues with the CVDs? Originally I thought you said to get the dogbones but in one of the vids you said the CVDs so that's what I just got to use with my MIP diff. I'm happy with either so long as it works well. ps Pintopower = AMPro
  7. Hi there - I do still have extras of all of these items I think. I can PM you pics of what I have later if you like?

    Awesome pics! One question - does it have the little lexan side vent pieces for the body?

    Bigwig re-release #47330

    I wouldn't be surprised if it actually came out in March, April, May... we've seen delays from leaked release timings like that recently with other re-re's. I'm excited to pick up a genuine (albeit re-re) brand new body. Honestly I'm not sure if I'll buy a kit, given the box layout standard of recent re-re's (just a bunch of parts in a box). If they were to do a really nice job of presentation like we've seen in some other re-releases (ie Sand Scorcher, Buggy Champ, etc) I'd probably grab one. Otherwise I'll probably just grab a body, chassis, subchassis, F parts, wheels... to have around maybe to restore a rough vintage one to make a runner. Of course, if the total cost of those parts adds up to about the cost of a kit I may get one anyway and just part it out amongst other projects.

    Sticker Peel

    Thanks @kontemax do you put it under the decal or over top of it, or both?

    Sticker Peel

    I have to say I'm really happy with the way my redone Supershot body came out. Very well by my standards for my own work. However even though they were only applied months ago the red stickers on either side of the body are peeling up along the edges! It's very frustrating. I got a whole extra set of original decals to keep on hand in case these ones turn out to be a problem. So, to revive this topic, does anyone want to second any of the above methods? Or do you know of another (maybe better) way to get them to stay in place?
