    Re-Re Hotshot with a "few" updates

    You just gave me the silly idea of creating a 3D TRF badge, to replace the front stabilizer mount... [emoji12]

    Re-Re Hotshot with a "few" updates

    Thanks Max, but I have a local guy doing that for me Anyway, while the girlfriend was watching Criminal Minds, I wanted to get the rear suspension working. The shock mounts had to be made a bit smaller, a quick and dirty push rod was built and to my surprise (again!) the setup was working perfectly The shocks go through their full travel and everything is moving smoothly. Just need to get nicer rod ends and some blue turnbuckle shafts

    Subaru Brat, It's Time To Bring It Back On The Road

    Probably the best front hex conversion I have seen so far! Great idea!

    Re-Re Hotshot with a "few" updates

    Thanks, I have seen that as well and a friend did a similar, but very crude, mod in the 80s. As I want a longer wheelbase this certainly won't work. And I'd like to do things the hard way and will try a double deck chassis without those side plates.

    Re-Re Hotshot with a "few" updates

    Started to play around with a new chassis design, which provides enough room for the electronics, a shorty Lipo and also extends the wheelbase by 15 mm. For the wheelbase increase, I used a Yeah Racing driveshaft for the TA-02 As I must have made a mistake with some measurements, the lower plate is a bit too short, so with the final version all electronics should have enough room... But at least the steering kit for a M-05 seems to do its job very well
  6. Hi there, I'm sure there are a few M05 owners out there and I would be grateful if one of you could measure the distance between the 2 screws holding the steering assembly (marked in red on the pic) Thanks in advance

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    You already helped me out last time I was there, finding this small drift shop. All the other places I know pretty well. But maybe we have a beer somewhere

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Started to convert the Hotshot to a dual shock setup Pushrods are missing and a few parts need to be done properly, but a good start

    This looks a little familiar....

    Even cheaper here: http://www.gearbest.com/rc-cars/pp_212681.html But, there is a reason why they are cheap as chips...
  16. Although I really like the products Gmade has introduced over the past years, I would have liked to see a licensed body of a real car. But the scale parts look pretty nice... I just can't deal with this style of marketing - teaser shots and and videos that generates lots of speculation but doesn't provide any real info. Vaterra just released their Bronco on a SWB Ascender chassis without all the marketing fuzz

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    Actually, I will keep it modern, adding lots of different mods like CVDs, new chassis design, 4 shocks, longer wheelbase nd a few other ideas I have. Not sure it will ever run, but it will keep me busy for the next few months And thanks for the suggestion, at least the bumper will make it into the shopping cart very soon

    Reorganizing, taking stock, making plans

    I just moved into a new house and as you know, even though you know the exact date well in advance, suddenly everything has to be done way to fast and everything just ends up in some random box. One week later, I started unpacking, still a mess, finding new to me, but old parts everywhere. Organizing everything will take some time, but has to be done soon, as there is a used Hot Shot and some related parts on their way to me

    Just got a Cat - but which one?

    Seems like I have to upload a few more detailed pics. Will do Sunday
  23. Initially I was looking for a cheap Hot Shot or Super Hot Shot, but found this guy in a Facebook Group, selling dozens of cars and even more boats from an old collection. Of course I recognized the Schumacher in the back, but no more information was supplied, but for 30€ shipped I didn't care too much Even came with a servo and some modified motor and all parts seem in good shape I lost track of all the Cat versions in the late 80s, so now the big question is: what model did I get? Thanks in advance
