    Just got a Cat - but which one?

    Thanks everyone! That'll give me something to work with, unless someone else has a better idea

    I think I may have sinned.

    Since the Basher Rally is a rebranded TeamC GR8LE-RA, spares might not be an issue at all

    The "oops, I broke it" thread

    My most recent one Probably tightend the screws too much and the wheel broke off 5 minutes into the first run with my Axial Yeti But reading some of the battery stories here, reminded me of the times when we pumped 5 amps in our NiCds on race weekends and used the temperature of the batteries (55-58 C) as the cut off. Too bad when the temp sensor came loose

    Avante 2001, universals missing

    Perfect, thank you!
  5. Hi there, a friend of mine got a NIB Avante 2001 from his buddy, but the universals are missing. Can anyone confirm if the ones from a Avante 2011 are a direct fit? Thanks in advance
  6. Not sure what you're looking for, but the Ascender has a Chevy body. There will be a Bronco from JConcepts, but that's not even announced yet

    Please help to identify this

    My apologies, but that's the only pic I've got. The gearbox looks like one from a Grasshopper, some other parts are toy-grade, I agree...

    Mad Bull Refresh

    Sure, I have some in my showroom: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=126318&sid=42770 Yes, those tires are pretty bad on anything but tarmac... Impossible to drive on loose ground, still fun though

    Mad Bull Refresh

    Just found this thread and it's cool to to see someone else having the idea with the shorty LIPO I have added a bit of carbon fibre to act as a top deck (to fix the battery and the ESC) and a servo mount, plus replaced the front suspension with parts from a DT-03. Handles pretty good now Still need to add some weight on the rear though, the 3000kv outrunner is not helping with traction

    I wish tamiya would...

    Come up with the ultimate invisible body mounts

    Mad Bull & Lipos.

    I'm running my Mad Bull with a 3500v Brushless and 2S Lipos. With a steel pinion no issues at all, if you find a Lipo that fits

    built a new servo and lipo mount for my Mad Bull... a bit overkill, I know

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    converted my Mad Bull to a double wishbone front suspension
  19. Did a little thinking myself and did my own style conversion. Parts required: DT-03 front lower arms DT-03 bulkhead DT-03 C-Hubs DT-03 screw pins and u-shaped Shaft some screws, 2 of them very long (used the old damper shafts of my FAV) 3mm threaded rod and some ball links Flattened the stock DT-01 bumper a little and put the DT-03 front together (shortened that u-shaft a little) centered the bulkhead on the bumper, drilled holes and fixed bulkhead with 12mm screws and lock nuts opened the front mounting holes for the bumper in the chassis all the way throught, this is where the top arms are going to be mounted with the longs screws. and after making the arms, the whole thing looks pretty good and is about 5 mm wider then the stock front

    tried to fit a DT-03 front suspension into a DT-01 Works like a charm
  21. That would be great! Thanks a lot!
  22. @GregM Just found this thread and would love to see the conversion Wolfgang made. But the forum seems offline. Any chance you have some more details on this? Thanks in advance

    The outrunners are not very different, just the can and the end bell are rotating together with the shaft. In my case, I made an adaptor from 16mm to the regular 540 bolt pattern and routed the wires through a small hole in the gearbox. More in my showroom soon
