  1. Sorry, at what point was Farage ever trying to effect positive EU change? His agenda was always to cause trouble and get the UK out, which he achieved with the help of other parties only interested in their own ends and certainly not the average Brit.
  2. On the front I have used my dremel to grind away some material from the chassis, this has increased the downward travel. The long damper spec mods have given me more upward suspension travel too, so the chassis can now bottom out.
  3. The Revival should be on again next year, and hopefully back to more of a normal situation. There is an Iconic RC page on a well known social media site that's worth a look too. Electrics are open, so you can run brushed or brushless setups and lipo batteries if you wish.
  4. If you know what mods are needed to get the Fibrelyte top deck to fit the buggy, it's worth getting in contact with them and asking if they can alter it for you. They changed an RC10 shock tower for me from their stock version.
  5. If you use superglue you could always use acetone to get the parts separated again, although the bearings might end up with glue residue inside!
  6. I have tried silicon on the splines before, which didn't last long. The next time I need to fix them rather than try super glue or epoxy, I am going to try shoo goo. It should be stiff enough not to let them move but not as permanent. If you try super glue I would try a gel type like I have, it makes it less likely for it to go everywhere!
  7. I have recently converted my car to long damper with the CVA mini. The advantage I wanted and it gives is more up travel, and now the chassis can bottom out. I have also removed material on the front of the chassis to allow the wishbones to drop more and clear the steering tie rods. My local off road buggy track is pretty bumpy so it needs the help!
  8. I'm not so sure what is around that part of London that might run anything vintage tbh. There are clubs and meetings that may run older cars but you will need to travel.
  9. Whereabouts are you, and what kind of racing are you interested in?
  10. I have fitted the Tamiya Frog hex adaptors.
  11. The front wheels are Tamiya ones (not sure which ones?) and the rear are Kyosho Turbo Scorpion.
  12. Thanks. The front towers are the alloy ones on eBay, and Tamiya CVA 50519 on the front set to 70mm. The rear shocks are Trackstar and green Team Associated springs.
  13. This is my Frog with a front shock conversion. I have not had chance to try it yet, but it should work a lot better than the kit setup.
  14. Setting up a ball diff to slip will flatten the balls and make it gritty feeling very quickly. It would be good if a slipper could be fitted, but I can't see how tbh. If you can find a way to glue the splines to take away the play and make it removable to change bearings that would help. It's the loose fitting of the splines that make them strip out. I am going to try epoxy resin next time.
