    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Drove the Turnigy SCT and after 10 minutes lost a dog bone when a screw came loose holding the rear camberlink letting the rear wheel angle out... too much of this caused it.. good fun though

    Fitted tyre decals to the BuggyRa Fat Fox.... these suit the taller sidewalls very well Then mounted the freshly painted Clod wheels into their tyres... that's a workout for sure!

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    A couple bits over the last week or so, some new radio's, new tyre decals and some spare Clod wheels The wheels needed a quick coat of white primer just to freshen up, pity one wheel has some damaged knobs on the hub but it might hold up
  5. I fancied a red Bullhead... but it's hard to find a good example to see it properly... I have found some other examples though..... post yours up if you have one

    Best colour for a Bullhead?

    Great suggestions chaps, this car'll still be macho... as macho as a toy car can be, so no kiddy enticing decals on it lol. I'm liking the black and silver contrast against Candy Red... now to decide on the wheel colour too... either red, white or silver.
  7. Seeking all chrome Body parts for a Bullhead body, used is ok, and 1 x wheel UK please.

    Best colour for a Bullhead?

    That purple does look good. I've got a new Bullhead body on the way so I will definitely progress this plan soon, I'm considering taking all the body parts off my stock blue Bullhead body and transplanting them over to the new shell to save buying all the accessories which add up ( tanks, rollbar, window etc). Cant decide on what colour flame decals would look best on a Candy Red body.

    M04's are taking over........ M04L Beetle (built but body needs painting) and M04M Giulia (kit to be built and body to be painted) I just need to get a set of window masks for the M04L Beetle now ;p

    Sold to that man..... I have two chances to get it built tonight ready for my 1.5 hour drive to the beach tomorrow...... those are zero and none... but it just jumped up the pecking order for sure cheers.

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    I thought I would do well to fit 8 tyre decals on my BuggyRa Fat Fox today.. you've done tons! What are these reinforced knuckles for the Lunchie... I might invest in a set
  12. Jason1145

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Go on... sell it.... the experience that is so entertaining?? ( I have a NIB I haven't prioritised building yet... pity as I'm off to the beach tomorrow and this might've been fun there)

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    This is one car I think looks too nice to drive... one of the few that I haven't seen bettered by going non box art.. they nailed the look from the start. Hope you chuck some photos up along the way and a final running video... depending how long you take (not too quickly lol) it might even give me time to persuade myself to buy this kit... one day!

    Found it https://www.amainhobbies.com/losi-xxxscb-2wd-electric-brushless-buggy-rtr-los03003/p390895 too expensive though

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Stop tempting me!!!!! That reminds me there was a blue coloured beach buggy thing from Losi I think that was 2WD... I need to go find it again ain't seen it for a couple years... think it was called a SCB?
  16. Some great stories on here guys, and it's nice to get an insight to some of other members and their RC experiences too. Luckliy I've never had any verbal abuse of anyone and I feel a bit angry that some of you guys have had to suffer that, how dare anyone else inflict their own nastiness on to an innocent person..... I might need to copyright a new RC I have in mind, it has tiny razor blades (or tickling feathers..... I haven't finalised it yet) fitted around the edges so you can "ankle" those rude people ;p Just this weekend I took my wife, 3yr old daughter and Clodbuster out to a local park to meet some other friends with their little ones for a play date..... I was half expecting the park to be full of people and not be able to run my RC but when I got there the weather was a bit dull and so it was quite deserted.... what a result I thought to myself as I parked up in a relatively empty car park. But in the time it took me to get out the car and then get my daughter out and safely on the ground , some members of the public went past and that was all it took for me to become quite shy to get my TOY CAR out- and trust me to have brought my biggest RC too... it's hardly subtle 'p But then I immediately reasoned with myself that I had bothered to charge the battery the night before, bothered to pack the Clod into the car etc.... so why shouldn't I have my RC time! This combined with some encouragement from my wife (who likes my daughter chasing the car around) meant that moment of doubt was soon over and out came the car. The point is maybe if my wife hadn't chipped in I might've left the RC in the boot and not brought it with me..... and as it turned out it was a fun day with the Clod as a few of my friends wanted to drive it too and it was a nice little centre piece to the date..... I secretly enjoyed watching the Clod being driven by others, seeing them struggle with the controls and then hand it over to me and I proceed to make it dance at will..... it never ceases to surprise me how non RC people just cannot drive an RC car... even petrolhead friends who love cars! (Women it seems have no throttle control... it's either nothing or full throttle, despite me explaining carefully to gently pull the trigger. sheesh!) The few people who did pass us by didn't comment, just an acknowledging nod and smile and then a couple of 7-8 year old girls were squealing with delight at the sight of the Clod running around and playing chase with it. Maybe the fact there was a group of 10 of us walking through with this big RC darting off away from our main group hitting any available jump, divot or small hill, the mixture of adults, small children and a couple baby prams all helped normalise the experience - it was quite an entourage to behold. Luckily I do go to the gym (probably lack of self confidence!) and work hard to keep my body in the shape of a V from the waist up (always keep the chest measurement bigger than the waist - it's getting increasingly difficult) I too have a shaved head and I can look either menacing or ultra friendly, whichever is called for.... if I see a group of lads ahead my chest will automatically puff out and I'll be ready for whatever..... but if it's a young family ahead like mine then a relaxed smile will take over
  17. Hi all Can someone confirm what size bearings are needed for the 3Racing alloy rear hubs for the M03/M04 I just tried swapping them on my M04L and the stock Tamiya 1150 bearings just pass straight through the hub as they are too small, these 3Racing hubs must need bigger bearings.... 1150 = 11x5x4 (Outer Diameter / Bore / Width. 1160 = 11x6x4 1260 = 12x6X4 Looking at the specs I don’t think either Tamiya’s next bigger sizes will be suitable, the 1160 is still too small Outer Diameter (11mm) as the 1150, and the 1260 Although has a bigger 12mm Outer Diameter the Bore hole is too big at 6mm so the axle will wobble through the bearings.

    Tamiya M03/M04 Hop up question

    Looks like I'll be back on the M04 bandwagon soon having just won a very nice looking Unbuilt NIB M04M Alfa Giulia Sprint...
  20. Jason1145

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Begs the question what're you thinking of? I'd say a 2WD or 4WD Stampede for waterproof and RTR'ness, but Tamiya wise I'd go for a Super Clod Buster... neither option is cheap though
  21. Jason1145

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Some glimpses from yesterdays run with the Clod My 3yr old had cold hands but still insisted to hold the transmitter and proceed to drive the Clod into the only bin in the park.
  22. Here is a photo of my rear cvd nearly falling out with the stock 80mm shocks and after when the reduced down to 75mm shocks Plus the shims I put on the front axles to stop wheel wobble and the zip tie around the servo saver which is helping steering wobble
  23. Jason1145

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Awesome photo .... what electrics you running?
  24. On the hunt for a new project and in need of a main chassis for a Striker or Sonic Fighter that needs restoration... also requiring a Sonic Fighter top cockpit. I think I've got most spare parts to fill in the gaps but anything on offer will be gratefully considered... UK only please. Usually @Tamiyabigstuff or @taffer chips in at this point
