  1. My go to 2WD basher. Super Stock RZ motor, alloy servo mounts and full turnbuckle kit.
  2. Had the clicking on mine after about 12 months of running a Super Stock RZ. Did the DF02 diff swap, its had a couple of hotter motors in since. Never had any problem with them since.
  3. I did consider having the originals done in gold, then thought of this. My Thunder Shot is currently in bits awaiting a full rebuild. Not sure what I'll do about decals. Thinking black and yellow for the bodywork.
  4. Took the black JPS Terra Scorcher out for a quick first run. Went well, just needed the braking turned down on the ESC. https://youtu.be/gPQt4PaIkww
  5. I've cut the front out of my last few. They are now stuck on the walls of my RC room.
  6. Finished apart from the driver figure.
  7. Finished apart from the driver figure.
  8. Replaced the steering servo in my Pumpkin, last time out I clipped a kerb. Pulled the self tapper that hold the horn on right out. Looks like it's happened before as the plastic washer had been replaced for a standard 3mm steel one. It now got a metal geared servo. Swapped the Super Stock RZ motor from my Grasshopper 2 with the 27T Trinity in my Neo Top Force. Also swapped the ESC's over too and fitted 2.4ghz radio gear in the Neo. My only kit that didn't have it.
  9. Taken my Hotshot 2 out for the first time in months. Is been in a box in bits until recently. Originally a rear drive cup snapped. Then I found the rear shock tower was cracked. It's now got a carbon fibre one. Then I round the rear gearbox had a crack. Finally got it back together a couple of weeks ago.
  10. Yes black shell with something different for the decals.
  11. Oil shocks make a huge difference. Had Super Fighter GR with the same friction shocks. Then bought a Sand Viper. Night and day difference, with the friction shocks I struggled to get the power from a Torque Tuned down. Run a Super Stock RZ in the Sand Viper. Both have the DT02 chassis the same as the re release Holiday Buggy.
  12. Don't know much about boats. Got one that came in a job lot. Its only been on the water once. It does however have direct drive. It was fitted with a standard silver can motor. Fitted this one as it a Kyosho, like the boat. Not tried it with this motor.
  13. Running a TRF Acto Tuned motor and a Hobbywing 1080 ESC
  14. This is something I've been slowly working on for a while. As you can see it was in a bit of state when I got it.
