  1. Managed to get some tb-01 e parts from JK-RC so fitted the damper stays and junfac 20mm wheel bolt extensions. Done.
  2. 4ywd is just Tx/Rx no servos. I woul order at least one metal gear high torque servo for the transmission
  3. I suspect performance will be c**p with all the weight from the body and wheels but tbh it won’t get run much. Just wanted to breath some life back into it
  4. Bit of a delay but I got the new shell. it’s big. And heavy. Not sure I can really get it to sit low enough without serious modification. But I will try and run it as is and see how we go. I dremelled below the drivers seat to give room for the cooling head but I wanted to keep the interior at the moment as I may reuse the body on something more scale. i drilled a little hole for the priming valve in the tanka little bit of space for the cooling head! But body still sits to high I think. extra weight requires replacing the springs in the 2 part injora 80mm dampers to stiff CVA ones. I also dremelled the flanges on the plastic bumpers at the underside to allow front and rear arms a few mm of extra travel. IMG_0513.mov Not bad travel for a TG10..... added 20mm hex spacers and some slightly larger beadlocks. exra width makes a difference as the body is 210mm wide. It is really more 1/8 bit of a Frankenstein but it has been fun now to run it
  5. In the process of restomod on my Mad Bison (basically a tb01/tg10). One of the issues is poor ride height and suspension slop. Desperately trying to find a Tb-01 e parts tree or any other damper stay that’s compatible. Tg10 shocks bolt directly to the gearbox but I really want to go up and out to increase travel and allow 80mm shocks. I am sure there are damper stays from other chassis that would line up to the gearbox mounts but unable to find out. Will other TB incarnations fit? Or any of the TT? some pics
  6. Sent it back and ordered another! Once it arrives I’ll hack it up a bit. It is a lovely scale body for the money tbh I was very impressed. What chassis are you using yours with?
  7. So the body arrived. have to say the quality of the Injora is very good. Really sturdy and great interior detail. but- damaged in transit😟 However I did do some fiddling. This thing is heavy. so I need some stiffer springs for the rear- any suggestions? 53281 tgx springs seem to be not available. also I wonder about how much space there will be around the cooling head with this hard body. Might have to cut out the interior. Is the body likely to melt?
  8. Yep. It’s a manual listed hop up
  9. Er- not sure why all the pics have ended upside down. Sorry
  10. Apologies if wrong forum- not strictly in the first 150 I don’t think. Found my old Mad Bison in the garage and thought I’d pimp it a bit. Tgm-01 chassis. Basically a TG10 with wild dagger suspension. As a result hop ups are pretty hard to come by nowadays. first problem- ride height shocking. Lots of slop in the shocks and travel poor as they are basically touring car. I extended them to 80 and fitted stiffer springs which has helped. Ideally I’d like a alloy shock tower to enable 100mm shocks like wild dagger/twin detonator mods but don’t think their shock tower will fit as the shocks mount to the gear housing on the tg10. Steering. Wow it’s sloppy. Eventually I found the now extinct Tamiya alu steering hop up 53365. From a shop I’d not used before https://www.e-kalfakis.gr/ seem to have a few old parts. (Also got lightweight flywheel 53208 from them) Made a lot of difference. Especially when added to gpm wild dagger knuckles and c-hubs. Added some new alloy 12mm hexes and shimmed the whole front end, wheels (0.5mm), c-hubs (2x 0.1mm each side) and kingpins (.2mm) and it’s all much tighter. finally added TR15 uprated brake disc 53171, stripped the engine and cleaned with old nitro fuel and a toothbrush. performance wise not much I can do I think as so much no longer available. Really wanted the alloy brake arm but can’t find it anywhere. injora 270mm jk body on its way and then I’ll look at the wheels once the fit of that is sorted some pics
  11. Hi Visitng boisterous nephews next weekend. Anyone got old or damaged basher WR-02 or CW-01 body shells lying around? They want to race the cars and i want to preserve my shelfie bodies! thanks
