  1. You certainly wouldn't want to get hit in the ankle by this!
  2. Just finished up this TT-01E Buggyra Fat Fox truck, calling it done! (for now at least). All stock kit build, box art body. The only thing I've added was LED driving lights and tail lights and some Good Year tire decals for detail.
  3. cant even compare the two....they literally are night and day. I've also run those and the older Novak 55t brushed motors.
  4. For pulling heavy loads, I would suggest a 55t or 80t brushed motor. It's a simple solution and works great. I typically use the inexpensive ones from RC4WD
  5. Definitely, before I even bought he car I knew what I wanted to do with it.
  6. Hello everyone, been quite awhile since I've been on here (about 4 yrs lol) Glad to see the site is still doing well! Just built my first Tamiya "buggy" in years. Decided to go with the DT-03 and do it up as a Frog tribute like others I have seen online. All stock kit build as of now with Flysky GT5 transmitter, Fast Eddy bearing kit and Robinson hardened pinion gear.
  7. If your going to do 4-wheel steering, but also wnat the option to just have front wheel steering, or even crab walking, this Bastens module is the slickest and easiest way to go! http://www.bastens.com/bastens-quadsteer.html
  8. Another CC-01 fan here as well..... This is one of mine, it is setup with a Tamiya ESC, RC4WD 55t motor, Traxxas 2075 servo, Tamiya stroke extension kit, Junfac 4-link kit with skid plate, Hot Racing aluminum steering bellcrank kit, RC4WD 1.55" wheels with Mudslinger tires and working LED lights.
  9. Thanks! BTW, are those 1.9 dirt grabbers on your rig? I was thinking about getting the 1.55 dirt thrashers and putting them on the 1.9 M1025 wheels, to keep the overall height down. The 1.9 tires tend to be pretty tall.
  10. Which one is that? Do you have a link, would like to see what it looks like. The machine gun from the Fast Attack wouldn't work on the M1025 ?
  11. What a shame, what did you use to try to remove the paint? I know this might sound odd, but I used brake fluid to remove paint from plastic items. It will removed the paint and not damage the plastic.
  12. I have problems posting pics too and I use photobucket, sometimes they will work sometimes they won't. Sometimes I have to make my post, then go back and edit it to get the pic to stick.
  13. I stay away from cheap servos too, they always have some sort of issue, noise, jitter, etc, thats why they are cheap. Stick with Futaba or Hitec and you'll be just fine.
  14. The Tactic radios aren't to bad and priced resonably. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXDYAH&P=ML And here is a cheaper one, that is Tactic compatible, Tower Hobbies Branded, http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LWA170&P=ML Not sure where you could get them in the UK though
  15. Ive noticed its super hard to find this body now and when you do it's a small fortune. I've had this one for about 3 years now, I'm going to get it running again soon, it's missing a few small pieces on the chassis. I was going to add the metal antenna and I would like to add a Machine gun to the top, do you think the Fast Attack Machine gun would be the correct size? I think I'm going to steel the antenna tie down idea too!
  16. Storing them fully charged is not good either, they will tend to swell up after awhile. If your using them all the time it's probably not a big deal, but if you end up not using the pack for quite some time, it will swell. Had it happened to me on a Revtech pack, I charged it, forgot all about it for a couple of months and it swelled up a bit.
  17. RC4WD has what you are looking for.... http://store.rc4wd.com/Gelande-II-Truck-Kit-wDefender-D90-Body-Set_p_3248.html
  18. Just found out about this today from a friend, yet another scaler to be hitting the market soon, HPI "Venture" http://www.rc-news.de/01/2016/spielwarenmesse-2016-hpi-venture-rtr-toyota-fj-cruiser-scale-crawler/
  19. I would say anywhere in the ballpark of $300 - $400 if it is still unopened and factory sealed.
  20. LOL, just found out my wife got me the Jimny kit for $99 shipped for Valentine's day, I had no idea, was waiting for me at home today!
  21. While browsing through Tamiya USA's website, found this killer deal on the Unimog 406 Wheelie Edition (CW-01) chassis. It includes FREE shipping in the USA. I ordered one for myself last night! https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio-control-kits-30/trucks-36500/rc-unimog-406-wheelie-58557
  22. I also have this car on Ebay if anybody is interested in it. Thanks http://www.ebay.com/itm/121888234833?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  23. MST cars are big in the drift scene. This kit is more like a copy of a cross between a Vaterra Ascender (steel frame adjustable chassis) and the Axial SCX10. I would say that the body shells are definitely are modeled after Tamiya. Interesting though....
