  1. Thanks for all that fantastic advice!! I'm really looking forward to racing in this class, it always looked like so much fun! Would you recommend foam tire's for carpet or are they too grippy?
  2. Cheers mate, I've managed to find some 50mm alloy body oil shocks that I had I a spares box. The shell that it came with is a little tatty but I'm guessing that won't matter for the first few races. I've been watching some M-chassis racing on you tube and its carnage! Best stick with the old shell to start with 😂
  3. Hey guys, I'm going to be racing a M03 this winter in doors. I'm new to the whole m-chassis and I'm wondering what are the best mods to make to a stock racer? Also what Bodys fit? I'm loving the look of some of the Abc shells and also the hpi ones. If any one has any tips for a newbie m-chassis racer please feel free to share :-)
  4. I've been going a little crazy spending lately, in the last week I've had the following turn up: -very tidy Striker -a clean and complete 58044 Pajero - 4 decal sheets - nos hotshot gold wheels - nos flacon rear tires - 4 various Tamiya motors And I'm waiting on a very clean looking monster racer from a fellow TC member Good times!
  5. My theory is if its a good deal and is part of my main area of interest (first 100 ) then I buy it, assuming I can afford at the time of course. Its amazing what you can amass in just a few years! Ive been collecting vintage parts for a Hotshot for a while now and almost have enough for a complete car, just a few bits to find now. While surfing the bay a few weeks ago I came across a parts lot for a hotshot which was a really good price so I brought it, now I almost have enough for two complete vintage hotshots! I only wanted one originally but c'est la vie

  7. Bro! You do some amazing work! The detail and finish quality incredible!
  8. I want the box!! Cool looking buggy, good luck 😀
  9. Cheers for the advice Chris. I'm pretty sure I've managed to source all the parts I'm after to complete my build 😀 I was hoping for my Hotshot to be an all original build but alas I just couldn't find the last few parts so it will have to be an original with a few re re parts. How have you been? Hope you had s great Christmas and the new year is treating you well so far
  10. Haha, as I was working on the falcon today I was thinking to my self should I build another complete car to sell or should I sell it of in parts? I'm thinking selling parts might be a better idea 😉
  11. Started my falcon restore today. Ended up buying a second falcon as it was cheaper to buy a second car than buy a few replacement parts on eBay! 😀
  12. Cheers mate, I had just won an auction on my local trading site for an Audi also but a couple of hours later the seller decided that he didn't run the auction long enough so relisted it 😡 As you can imagine I'm highly p***ed of! Thanks for your help though
  13. Update, the bumper is the same as the brat 😀
