    Original Top Force - Should I bother?

    Hi @Snappy1 Almost a year on, not too much in the way of updates. I have a re-re kit I'm about to build, that will be fun. 2 sets of re-re hi-caps 1 set already on the vintage and 2 sets of J parts. The black wheels are a bit buckled and the tyres worn anyway. I'll buy some new wheels and tyres and rebuild the diffs before taking it out for a run again.

    That is great. I wish 'd kept my original box. It sounds like you have everything ready to go. Your pictured wing looks better that my current TBG one! Looking at the pics tho, you need some alu hexes for the wheels, those black plastic ones won't last. Yeah, those old screws will have seen better days. Some of the guys here have helped me with some of the more rare bits, most of the hardest bits to get for my build were j parts. Is there anything you're needing? I've decided to build my re-re kit and have ordered 53136 X2 to replace the plastic thrust bearings in the diffs. I need a sealed bearing kit, another alloy motor mount. Need universals for the back too. I love these things and am looking forward to building up this one!

    I'm no longer a local @Snappy1 but I'll let you know next time I'm visiting family around there. Thanks for linking to my thread. Looks like photobucket have screwed over my pics, I saw something posted on toymods about getting around that, I'll fix it up when I can.

    Mine's been sitting for a bit. I'll pull it back out and see what it needs to get going and how the diffs are looking.

    They seem to be a bit bad with that but this is my first real negative interaction with them over quite a few purchases. I've verified that they've ordered more and will be getting allocated from that stock. I can wait for a bit. I just pulled apart, cleaned and re-lubed my original top force and lost an e-clip in the rug oops.

    Found the post, it was Percymon he said: Yes you should plenty of choice - standrd 2.2" buggy wheels, but you'll need 4wd front and rear rims with hex drives obviously. Tyres will depend on what surface you're running on - best ask the local guys for recommendations, but the DF-03 wheels and K block tyres should be available from Stella or Banzai Black front DF-03 wheels are 0440209 Black rear DF-03 wheels are 0440210 K block tyres come in C (competiion = soft) or K (kit ) compounds 54185 front - K compund 54186 rear - K compiund 54187 front - C compound 54188 rear - C compound Banzai :- http://banzaihobby.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&keyword=54185&search_in_description=1&manufacturers_id=&pto=&x=0&y=0 http://banzaihobby.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&keyword=0440209&search_in_description=1&manufacturers_id=&pto=&x=0&y=0 http://banzaihobby.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&keyword=0440210&search_in_description=1&manufacturers_id=&pto=&x=0&y=0 Here's my old build thread

    I can't remember who recommended this wheel / tyre combination but it's been perfect.

    I don't think the parts are weak (other than some of mine being ancient) just that it was HARD to find some J parts when I needed them. I broke my J parts in a MASSIVE high speed crash I'll be getting some hi-caps and some j-parts as spares. Good idea retiring the 91 for a new build, my 91 was so much fun with the stupid brushless and 2s lipo
