  1. Great stuff! I will film my run when I get round to it.....so subscribe and hit the notification button ......lol
  2. Use 30% Nitro buggy fuel......cars generally use a lot higher nitro than aircraft. I think it helps them because the throttle gets used a lot driving cars, but I fly flat out almost all of the time and hardly use throttle really when I fly. The carb is the Jetstream which is superb. And yes it is for aircraft. I have over 10 Irvine engines and they are wonderful engines. In aircraft I use the principle of up to 0.40 cu in use 10% nitro, over 0.40 cu in use 5% nitro. Smaller engines need nitro as each intake of fuel is a smaller measure, and thus the nitro really helps the fuel burn well in smaller amounts.
  3. The only reason I haven't run it yet is because I haven't had the time.....I will run it occasionally.
  4. Not yet...I have only just completed it hedge. The restoration is on my YT channel....here is Part 1.... Feel free to subscribe 😁👍
  5. Good Luck hedge..... I recently completed a restoration of a Mark 2......and I am about to start to restore a Mark 1
  6. Are they Holiday Buggy rear tyres?.....they look great on the DT03!!
  7. Not as miffed as I was when I had my entire channel taken down!! I will dig the videos out and reupload them over the next few days hopefully.
  8. I will reupload it for you.......do you have any part you want to see or do you want to see all of it. I am Simon Webb on YouTube
  9. I have subscribed and Good Luck! I also have a You Tube Channel again.....where I do RC cars....RC aircraft....and Plastic Modelling! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmMMTXp7gskEeZj7uCHo9qA
  10. Kev the Rev is right. I am currently restoring one for the first time. The Marvelous Mardave Marauding Marauder
  11. The Hornet is an upgraded version of the Grasshopper. You get oil shocks (rear) and a different way of fixing the rear gearbox to the chassis at the front of the casing. The other differences you already know about, with the Hornet body being made of Lexan instead of plastic in the 'hopper's case.
  12. Interesting release..... ....I might have to change my name to "SuperDragonRacer 1971" ...lol I wonder why they have included "storm" in the name? I will ignore it in protest! lol
  13. Interesting release..... ....I might have to change my name to "SuperDragonRacer 1971" ...lol
  14. I think it is a very good idea. Algorithms in YT tend to suggest like-minded videos successfully enough, but the 3D printed archives and possibilities are a minefield for me personally. I tend to "ask taffer".........lol But I am impressed with the number of people that suggest things on YT to me that I have never heard of before. If there is ever a video I really like on YT Tamiya related, I used 4k Downloader (free) and it saves it to my external drives. Designing improved parts is not my forte at this stage, but if I ever got into 3D printing I would give it a go because I have a lot of experience with AutoCAD through my job.
  15. That will be a purchase for sure!.........looking forward to what else is in store......
