    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Are you going to drive to Astoria for the real landmarks from the movie? A pic holding it up in front of an Astoria sign would awesome too.

    6s battery in a lunchbox

    You got steel gears for a Lunchbox? Do you have a link for where to get them?

    Am looking for a seller?

    I just looked it up and he is no longer a seller on Ebay. His Paypal address was johnboy007777@hotmail.co.uk if you wanted to try e-mailing him. My scanner/printer/copier has recently died. I'll see what I can do to try to get them scanned.

    Mine are the stock blue ones. I'll see if I can look back and find the sellers name, that was a number of years ago.

    I don't remember the sellers name, but I have a set of those stickers that I am not going to use. Are you in the US? FYI, they don't come with stickers for the fenders, which is why I decided to paint mine.

    Decent track buggy

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to be rude, just pointing out that he wasn't here in the US so what's available might be different. Sorry if it sounded like I was being a jerk, that wasn't my intention at all.

    He mentioned charging, letting it cool down, and then charging it again. My main point was to make sure to discharge after a charge, not try to charge it again. A cycle charger makes the process easier, but it can be done without that kind of charger. Long term a charger that can cycle the battery will be good to keep those batteries in good working order.

    I don't think he is in the US. Schumacher cars may be more common where he's from. RCtech ads are pretty much a US only thing, so shipping kills those deals for him.

    Tamiya Wheelie cars for a 3yr old child?

    Do you have a charger that will do a cycle charge? You can often revive nimh batteries that way. It's a good thing to do for maintenance anyway.

    You have to discharge it after charging it each time. Charge, discharge, charge, discharge. If you are getting back into things you will probably want a new charger. Get one that will cycle charge, and charge all different types of batteries(nimh, lipo, life, etc). It will make things easier and if you decide to switch to lipo, it still does the job.
  11. It's looking great. Can't wait to see how it looks when you're finished.

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Finished building my Losi 22 2.0. The instructions were pretty easy, I heard other brands were difficult. I've never built a TRF kit, so it's not an apples to apples comparison. Time to paint the body and wire up the motor. Flysky GT3B and tires should be here next week. Can't wait to give it a run to see how "race" buggies drive compared to my vintage ones

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    I picked up a Losi 22 2.0 kit plus a bunch of hop-ups for $120. It's my first non Tamiya kit, it will be interesting to see the differences. In the end I will have a very nice running buggy for a price I could afford. Ok, I can't afford it but I bought it anyway
  14. I ordered from them twice. Never again.
  15. That body is looking great so far. The moon windows are a sweet idea.
