    rc_ox's FJ40 CC01 Build

    I follow you on instagram, I liked your rig so much, I basically mirrored your build. Thanks for the inspiration!

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Haven't posted in quite a long time, but I figured some of you might appreciate my latest completed project. Also got started on refurbishing an F103. My first M02, bought it about 2 years ago for next to nothing on eBay because of a very poor item title. Been working on it on and off ever since, definitely one of the more challenging bodies I've ever done. Fully ball raced, oil filled aluminum dampers and has a rare M02 heatsink installed. Have tamiya aluminum steering arms and roll bar set yet to install. Even with the kit motor, it flies!

    TA04 aluminium suspensions mount colour

    Perhaps TRF414 suspension blocks will work? If memory serves, they were plain aluminum.

    Some Tamiya 2017 releases

    I need a Volvo 850 BTCC re-re. And others of the era.

    TA-07 PRO Item #58636

    This. So much this. Loving the color scheme.

    I'm using the kit standard torque tuned and esc with a lipo + alarm. I wanted to keep it tame, it's still fun for me and plenty challenging for friends to knock around with it.

    How to re-fix body stickers?

    Using a heat gun has solved this issue for me, it's made applying decals significantly more enjoyable.

    I love mine, too low for grass, but it REALLY shines in loose dirt and gravel. So much fun seeing it kick up little rooster tails on full tilt.
  9. Got an email from my bank, my CC has been billed. Checked the order status: Preparing shipment from Reno, NV!
  10. I imagine the first batch of these is going to sell out rather quickly. Tower still says "end of September". Any day now...

    Why can't I sell my cars?

    I've bought a few cars that were initially (at least in my mind) 100% to fix and sell. Then at about 75% completion, I feel the shift and I just think "yea, you're keeping this one, too." Usually when the decals start to bring the body to life, or the chassis just starts to look so good with 1 or 2 hop ups.
  12. It's the waiting game now. Getting antsy!

    New release: Tamiya DT-03 Neo Fighter Buggy

    Perhaps it needs a hardened diff joint like 53217? I've run into that issue before.

    New release: Tamiya DT-03 Neo Fighter Buggy

    I completely agree with you Dimitriy. Luckily most of the hop-ups I have purchased for my DT03 were found on ebay and on more than 1, I was the only bid. I got the aluminum battery bar and servo mount for next to nothing thanks to low interest in these parts and low starting prices. I think I will try diff putty to stiffen up the stock diff before I dive in to the ball diff set to keep the cost down. I promised myself the universal shafts were the last thing I would buy for this car. We'll see how that goes.
