  1. If you are interested in "pulling" you might like to check out the Monster Slot Trucks, Tanks and Pullers" Facebook group. Any questions please feel free to ask. Dave. Monster Slot Trucks, Tanks and Pullers
  2. Glad that you enjoyed my post. I was pleased by the way the sled went together, even more so as I was able to build the "sled" with odd's and end's that I had laying around. More details of the "sled" here. Building a 1:32 Scale Sled For Slot Truck and Tractor Pulling
  3. Your HO buggy's remind me of the SCX 1:32 scale buggy's, These SCX buggy's also have working suspension with 4 wheel drive. They are also fitted with "drop-arms" so that they can drive up and over obstacles.
  4. Might be of interest. As I make a fair number of my slot models, by using just some parts from various kits, I end up with a pile of unused parts. I found a Tamiya Bull Head body, and a Tamiya Wild Mini chassis, but had no wheels or tyres. I did however have a "Tamiya Truck Tire Set". This comes with the same size axle as the Tamiya Wild Mini kits, but there is no gear. I did have some "modula 0.5" 60 tooth gears, these have a 2mm, hole which I opened up to 2.5mm, then just chamferd the opening to 3mm. A bit of trial and error with the axle lengths, and I had a running chassis. I could have left it at that, but the body was sitting very high, and did not look right with the smaller wheels and tyres. So a bit of butchery on just the chassis, let the body sit a lot lower. Here are some details of the build and testing, on road, off road and pulling. Bull Head build and in action.
  5. Here are my 2020 builds so far, a few using parts from Tamiya kits. 2020 Builds
  6. Two Tamiya based slot car pullers in action against the sled. The Wild Mini Bull Head 4WD is fairly standard apart from the dolt guide and 12 volt motor. While the 2WD Ford uses a Tamiya Universal Gearbox to get the power from the 12 volt motor to the ground via the Tamiya "Off Road" tyres.
  7. Have built a sled for 1:32 scale Truck and Tractor pulling, with a Tamiya Wild Mini 4WD Bull Head adapted for slot Truck Pulling.
  8. Yes the Tamiya racing buggy's can be converted to slot. but would need wide slot spacing, or run on a track designed for 1/24th scale slot cars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2mA9B9W7xQ
  9. Tamiya slot conversion with minimum tools & materials.

  13. My "Thorn Club Tour" frame made by Andy Blance of St Johns Street Cycles. Tandem rear stays fitted as I had a habit of snapping normal bikes just behind the bottom bracket.
