  1. What are the chances of another run of the Dyna Storm, I missed it both times in the past, these days the prices have been going crazy for reasonable condition kits
  2. Are you buying it from RC Mart lol. depends what you want to use it for, I would go for the TRF all day long.
  3. the one bit of information that I struggle to find is what amperage should we discharge them at to go into storage mode, set at the lowest rating a 5000mah battery can take 18 hours to discharge to storage( from full charge ) I am using an Ultra Power UP6+ and an ISDT Q6 pro with an independent power supply. any advise appreciated.
  4. did you use anything special to screw fix the wing, I had another go at it last night and its driving me nuts
  5. I am still trying to figure out how to get the rear wing on, its a POS, need 4 hands to twist the strap and insert the pin.
  6. Brisbane Taringa mate, yep plenty of interest, I know a few others that would be keen as well, the clear version looks the goods.
  7. Whats the damage for 1, I need about 40 for my display case, Tamiya, team associated, Yokomo, Schumacher etc. at least he is locally based to me
  8. JJ I will weigh them tonight, chassis and gear box are the 2 main areas of weight
  9. I ended up using red rings, green slim and a small amount of plumbers tape around the threads of on the bottom cap, along with the plastic gasket. no problems so far but I have only driven it up and down the road, id say it would be different after going over a few jumps and crashes.
  10. yes mate a Geared Diff, just didn't come with oil
  11. Yep, looks like I was wrong again, was the Mini T a good car ???? but jeez how good would a re re JRX2 be
  12. I picked up an early release from my LHS, apparently 2 came into Australia from the pre production batch, dint come with Diff or Shock oil, was a pretty easy build except for the shock's they suck - the seal is a PIA to get over the collar, 1 X shock leaked overnight onto my tool bench. its a lot heavier than my Super Astute
  13. yeah, they have this up on there website at the moment, I'm only guessing on the JR because Jnr is back, it could just be the new 4wd from the worlds
  14. Not Tamiya but a Losi JRX2 maybe on the Horizon.
  15. pretty much, its going to be used @ Chargers RC in Brisbane, its a great track with heaps of traction
  16. Hi Jonathon, I have the surpass V4 in my new built Xray XB419 and have had the same problem, its very noisy when off throttle or coasting along, I was of the opinion that I had built the diff wrong but on inspection it is just the Magnets on the rotor, I have a 17.5 in my B6.1 and it is the same. I must say that they are a great motor, heaps of torque and speed.
  17. any update on this mate, I have a RRR ready to be built and am keen to see the build and results of the RR. good work on both builds so far cheers
  18. I have the 13.5 for stock 4wd and its a beast, check out the you tube review by Nick Adams, it has better specifications than the majority of the Big brand motors
  19. is there another show on the Horizon that I don't know about ????, I thought that I had put the 959 Demon to bed LOL
  20. Top deck and small parts from Fibrelyte for my YZ10 94, it was my first time using/ordering from Fibrelyte they where excellent, delivery to Australia was no problem at all and very quick and reasonable. Also picked up some Lipo trays for the YZ10 from a guy off Old School RC on facebook, I was a bit nervous about this order/ordering anything on facebook but these turned up quick and are of a high quality would definitely recommend using him again. Now just waiting for TBG to deliver the YZ10 and Lazer ZX body shell's for painting
  21. Just don't buy the Cat XLS if its your first kit, wait until kit # 20 to make that leap, my son built an RC10 worlds when he turned 13 and he managed fine up until the turn buckles, as above make sure you have the correct tools for the job and a well lit stable working area take your time and enjoy the build, it is very rewarding
  22. Finally got around to installing the Motor and speed controller into the Cat, was going to take my time with the painting but rushed it as usual, it bled through the tape, window masks stuck to the window and couldn't get the residue off, that let to a couple of layers of smoke/Gun Mettle on the windows, rear wing disintegrated during the painting process, so replaced with a spare that I had, still waiting for the front hinge pin to arrive that was missing from the kit. Took it for a quick spin on the drive way and promptly broke the solder joint on the sway bay. Yep gotta love this build - ( car drives great and is very smooth ) Calmed myself down by installing some wheels and a wing onto the yoke, will get around to putting a 17.5 speed passion system into it at some point, then a re-pro body shell ( can't wait to paint that )
  23. Picked this up from a local seller, have always wanted a runner YZ10, can anyone tell me what version of the YZ10 it is I am hoping that it is the WCS, don't know if I could be that lucky. Cheers
  24. I just finished the build and it was quite the challenge, I am missing 2 X Hinge pins for the front suspension and have a massive wobble in the spur gear ( doesn't sit tight between the 2 x Diff rings ), several times during the build I was ready to give up and throw it in the shed, happy to have finished it, it was a massive challenge but well worth it, for the build I would invest in some circlip pliers for the shocks and also complete the steering assembly before the under tray goes on. Now I just need to figure out the gearing for a 17.5 and complete the electrics PS - don't even get me started on the soldering of the sway bar, I still have the blisters on my fingers ( for the parts where it missed the super glue that was stuck to my fingers )
  25. I have a 10.5 in my Daughters ( read as Mine 👍🏽) DB-01 RRR and it is an awesome buggy, much preferred it over the B44 series cars that I have, starting to show its age against the Associated B64 and can be a pain to work on, but it is a strong and reliable car for the average racer + its a Tamiya
