  1. I've not had much negativity when I've been running out in public places, usually it's teenagers, calling me a saddo or words to that effect or the usual "Aren't you too old for that?" from adults. I just ignore the teenagers and for the the adults my stock response is "There's worse ways to spend my well earned time, I could be in the pub getting wrecked or sticking needles into my veins" and they usually agree with me and carry on their way. A lot of the time tho people who do come up to me are genuinely interested or at least curious and want a closer look.

    If I remember rightly the voltmeter was only a fiver on fleabay. I just marked up the size of the display on the rear of the interior, cut the hole and stuck it in place with hot glue. It's wired directly to the battery connection with a deans plug in the middle so if I ever have to completely remove the body for c g changing batteries etc it's not going to be a problem.

    Fitted a mini voltmeter to the dash in my Scx10ii, now I can see the batteries condition at a glance and should avoid the risk of hitting the low voltage cutout.
  4. Tbh they're all much of a muchness. Apparently AE green slime is exactly the same stuff as noleen sf3 shock grease which is used as lubricant for motorcycle forks and shock seals. It might be worth having a look for that instead as you can get considerably more than AE supplies for not a lot more cash.

    Took the Scx10ii out for a bit and decided to have a bit of a play in a wee stream that I found pretty near to my house.

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    A couple of mini voltmeters that I'm going to pop into the cabs of my scalers so I'll be able to check the battery's voltage at a glance and hopefully mean I shouldn't have to experience an esc hitting low voltage and the car grinding to a halt unexpectedly.
  7. From a quick look at the site I'd say that they're Canadian, they've got CA before the $ sign and their faq is all in French so that'd be my guesstimate.

    Finally got around to applying the decals onto my manta ray shell. I also got around to painting up a second manta ray shell for @neowhizzit looks solid black at first glance but it's actually a really dark gunmetal with the box art cockpit and anti glare panel in black. Once it gets decaled up I think it'll look spectacular.

    And the overgrown kids on here think it's hilarious too 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I've superglued myself to bits of RC model more times than I care to remember. There days I keep a bottle of debonder in my toolbox at the all times. It's incredibly handy to have nearby.

    How to remove super glue from "Outside" of tyres

    Not sure tbh bud, it's certainly worth a try tho.

    How to remove super glue from "Outside" of tyres

    Acetone on a cotton wool bud/ball will do the job just fine (albeit slowly) and won't attack the rubber. The silicone sealant trick is great if you're running silver can motors etc but when you start to put serious power down you'll find it doesn't hold up and will end up going back to superglue. The best way I've found is to fit the tyre, gently lift the bead off the rim at one point, we'll call this 12 o'clock and put a drop of superglue on the rim, then repeat the process at 6 o'clock then 3 and 9 respectively. Capillary action will take the glue around the rest of the rim. Then move onto the next tyre until you've done all four then flick them over and repeat the process on the other side of the wheel and tyre. Don't try to do both sides at one time or you'll end up stuck to the wheel and tyre (ask me how I know this one 😂😂😂)

    Restoration of broken lexan body.

    I put drywall tape over the crack on the inside and coat it with shoe goo. It drys nice strong and flexible.

    Actually it wasn't too bad, not including the time it took for the liquid masking to dry it only took me just over an hour or so to do.

    @Grotty OttyI used alclad holomatic spectral chrome airbrushed in several light coats backed with createx opaque black which is also the anti glare panel colour. I then backed that with a quick blast of ps-5 to seal the createx. The armoured glass is also an alclad colour (called armoured glass funnily enough) applied in several light coats to get the depth of colour. The anti glare panel was done by cutting the over spray film away from the area I wanted matt and giving it a few coats of Tamiya ps-55 matt clear.
