  1. I had an RC10 B2 an RC10 T3 and a Lockmann rail all done up in Miller livery. Paint was gold, black, and white. Still got the rail chassis here, and a bunch of Autographics Miller decals “I think”. Where are you? I’m in Australia.
  2. Spending time with your long flathead screwdriver in your pocket tuning can be addictive. A nicely setup nitro is a sweet thing indeed. O.S. make great user friendly stuff, and once dialled, only require the slightest tweaks according to conditions.
  3. I’ll have to dig out my Frog kit and look for the differences. It was purchased NIB from a Japanese collector, and it’s been a very long time since I’ve had a peek inside.
  4. @Mokei Kagaku thanks for the pic and info bro. It’s not quite what I was hoping for, but I like it enough to gets me one. Gotta love the Brat.
  5. I’d be down for a set of front and rear arms also a motor cover.
  6. I’m guessing this may be a blue chrome finish body. Time will tell.
  7. There’s just somethin special about em.
  8. My favourite has to be the Buggy Spike, first tyres I ever seen in person on a Frog. Love the Padlatrak also the Sand Blasters both front and rear, and let’s not forget The Smoothee. These are all tyres I grew up with, and are kinda special to me. For after market, it’s gotta be You-G’s front and rear.
  9. I have some NIB original kits, and many of the rerelease kits. Where I am right now in my life, I just can't bring myself to build the originals. For example RA1016, every couple of years I get it out, gaze over it, smell it, flick through the manual, I sit and reminisce, but I just can't slip a blade into those blisters or bags. It's just too historic, I just can't. I'm all over the rerelease Scorcher like a hobo on a ham samich though. Not a second of hesitation.
  10. Heads up! Boomers are now on ebay from one of our favourite distributors in Hong Kong. Got a crackin price on one shipped Down Under. Kits include ESC too. What a relief it is to tick this one off the list. For personal reasons, this will be a special build for me.
  11. The suspension on this looks super dialled, in particular the rear. Ask you friend to share what his set up is? It looks to be working superbly, weather its factory, or custom.
  12. Thanks for the heads up bro.
  13. @Effigy3 As you have them mounted in your picture, is the correct way. If you pay close attention to the manual, it also shows the mounting direction quite clearly. These are true directional tyres.
  14. @jonboy1 Mate, the work, the time, and attention to detail on this is outstanding. Not only on the Ranger itself, but also the thread documenting it all. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it so far. As for the colour you have chosen, and how you choose to present the driver, I'm sure no matter what you go with, the new or renewed owner will be super happy regardless. I personally think it would be great if it flooded back memories of his Dad, unfortunately memories can be brutally painfull, but they can also be equally full of joy. Keep up the great work, your input is your signature on this piece. I for one, really dig it.
  15. Just a heads up... One of our favourite sellers out of Hong Kong has the Novafox now available on eBay. I picked one up myself for a great price delivered to Australia. And yes the kits include a Tamiya ESC if that's a concern to you. Go get em!
