  1. I have an M-chassis but I don't know which one it is...
  2. Thanks! I wasn't sure... I bought it from ebay a while back (for far too much!), it was just billed as a mini...
  3. I may just be able to help - I think I have an 01 with a Futaba servo, been sat on a shelf waiting for rainy day - not much rain these days...
  4. Hi, I'd love to take this off your hands if it's still available...
  5. Awesome - The Kyosho is amazing, those Bajas are amazing, your beetle will look great!!!!
  6. Hopefully it will see good service over the next few months! I have one of these, so I'm good to go!
  7. I almost bought a BigWig on Tamico.de today (the special offer price is too good to miss), but thought I'd have a quick look at the bay and see if there were any Thunder Shot/Coro Coro Dragons around... and there it was... Buy-it-now... So the Hot Shot and Boomerang will have to wait until another day...
  8. I've had a look at 2nd hand, but they seem to be making good money at the moment, and if there is anything that needs to be fixed, it could end up costing the same as brand new... Is that a polycarbonate body, or is it solid? Now that puts the cat amongst the pigeons!! That's a really good price...
  9. I have looked at a Super Hot Shot, but the cost made me dismiss it as an option, however is it worth the extra? What are the differences between the Hot Shot and Super Hot Shot?
  10. I think the Boomerang and Hot Shot are sitting at the top of my list - but, if there were a re-re Fire Dragon available or a Thundershot/ThunderDragon, I'd be all over it! (they were also on my childhood wish list) I agree with you about the Bigwig - it was on my list because of the value for money, but (IMO) it is the ugliest of the bunch!
  11. Man - This made me laugh!! - you're not kidding, this stuff is hard on the wallet too!
  12. I recently purchased a NIB re-re Boomerang from ebay, I was soooo excited, but alas, my payment was refunded with a message saying 'sorry, it has already been sold' So now, while my refund is 'pending' on paypal, I have had some time to think... I want a 4WD buggy, I always wanted a HotShot as a child, but, on reflection, I see there are a number of other options... So I turn to the infinite wisdom of the gestalt! I want something I can bash, so durable with good spares available, I want to be able to have different wheel options and I will be fitting brushless kit with a view to running 2s and 3s lipos. My options are: Hot Shot, Bigwig, Boomerang, Manta Ray and Dark Impact Is the Manta Ray any good? (the price seems quite cheap in comparison to the others). Is the Hot Shot worth the extra premium? Is the Bigwig as sturdy as it looks? Or... am I best off going for the boomerang as there seem to be more of them around, so parts would be readily available and cheaper? Or... should I go for the Dark Impact as it's newer and may handle the bashing better? So many questions... I hope you guys can help!
  13. I totally agree!! That's the exact reason I started this thread!
