  1. MIP has their reputation for a reason.
  2. I revived a Speed Passion Reventon Pro by hooking it up to the computer and changing the profile. I went from a stock profile to a mod one. It took two tries, but it works fine now. Might be worth a try if you haven't already.
  3. Where can you find a 23T sport tuned? None of the boxes I've had were printed with a motor turn #. Someone needs to test a 23t Sport Tuned against one in a box without it printed to see if there is a major difference.
  4. Search on Ebay showing the sold listings to get a real idea on what they are worth in the US. As these guys have said, they are worth something to someone.
  5. I have recently sold off a few cars and have some things I no longer need. All prices include shipping in the US. 1 set of Frog universals #53908 - I got these for a Blackfoot I had. I drove them 10 feet with the gearbox slipping the whole way. I ended up using dog bones in the truck. You will need a pair if you are going to use the MIP ball diff. Like new $28 1 Sport tuned motor #53068 - This was run once, not even a full battery pack through it. Like new $18 Set of 4 Duratrax six pack short course wheels/tires - These are brand new in open packages. They were the wrong offset for my truck. They will fit the Traxxas Slash 4x4, the rear of the Traxxas slash 2wd, and the HPI Blitz. There are probably others that they will fit as well. $40 2 pairs of vintage Tamiya pin spike front tires #5270 - Both pairs are new in package. $20 per pair. I have pictures of everything. Let me know if you are interested.
  6. There are plenty of Tamiya only types that would like it. It may not bring as much as before the Toyato, but it's still worth something.
  7. Buggy Champ gets my vote. It's just a cool looking scale buggy.
  8. A larger footprint will be more stable at high speeds than a 1/10 touring car. I'm not interested in a big on-road car either, but they are not the same as a small one with a powerful motor.
  9. After 5 years my Grasshopper body broke - RIP. Time to get the black body I got a year ago ready. I also bought a used Spektrum S6270 low profile servo for my TLR 22 2.0. I'm just about ready to drive it for the first time.

    Did they change the servo position on the Dynahead? On the Konghead the servos are on the same side of the chassis, but they are mounted in opposite directions so they turn correctly. A Y lead worked perfectly.
  11. I've never had a 1/16th vehicle so I don't know if there are standard wheel attachments, but have you looked at the Traxxas 1/16th slash wheels/tires?
  12. +1 on the Kimbrough ones. The stock tamiya ones are made to break, that's how they save the servo. The Kimbrough ones are made to twist a little in a big hit, so they don't break.
  13. Are you using them with 2.4ghz radios? Most new receivers don't have a built in BEC like the old style ones. The TEU105BK was the first one to have a BEC in the esc. I don't know if that's what's causing the problem, but it's something to look into.
  14. I'm curious to see how that one is installed. It looks like it extends the motor shaft so you can use a regular pinion, rather than finding long ones like the stock pinion. What I have is similar, but the main disc doesn't have the side cutout like that one, which is why it won't work for smaller pinions. The disc hits the gearbox and can't move closer. I use one on my GrassHornet to run a 21tpinion, and it works great. I didn't try it with the stock motor mount on my Midnight Pumpkin, just direct on the gearbox like the GrassHornet. Here's the one I have. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-Hornet-Adjustable-Motor-Mount-Kit-Gear-Cover-Lunchbox-Grasshopper-16t-22t/303110480944?hash=item4692cae430:g:15oAAOxyVLNSo-FR
  15. Depending on the motor mount, it may not let you lower the pinion, despite being sold as such. I could go up with mine no problem, it hits the gearbox when trying to go lower. I could get a 17t pinion on and it worked, but it wasn't fully meshed with the spur. If you're running on a track, you probably won't want the stock pinion due to the extra torque and it being a "wheelie" chassis. Mine is still running 6-cell nimh's, so lipo will make it even more prone to standing up on the rear down the straights.
