    Wanted: Boomerang dual front shock conversion - 50305

    You can try the Supershot brackets, they look quite similar: https://tamico.de/#q%3Dsupershot%26t%3Dno
  2. Peter_B is absolutely right. You should consider buying a Mad Bull - great car out of the box. Add ball bearings and oil shocks -> even better car, that will survive almost everything.

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    i am aware that most of the purists will hate me, but with a capable pc and the right emulator software you can play almost all of the console games (and home computer games) out there up to ps2 i guess. most of the games play like on the console. and no need to fiddle with the osolwte tv-set connectors

    Blackfoot gearbox reinforcment

    i once bought the parts from mheald, but i didn' use them. i would sell them for the price mheald asked, but i got the monster beetle version and i am unsure if it works on the blackfoot.

    3D and RC parts

    3D printing is indeed fascinating and opens infinite possibilities to restore/upgrade our rc cars. the one thing i am not sure about is the strength/durability of the 3D printed parts compared to the injection molded ones. the latter feel stronger and i am afraid they are, but i have not directly compared such parts.

    Durability List

    I am with WillyChang. The Hotshot/Boomerang etc. drivetrain can take a beating. I got a Super Sabre that was used and abused a lot, it was even ran over by a real car and still no damage to the chassis. Meanwhile only the front arms show some cracks and have to be replaced, but the thing is > 30 years old . Furthermore, the MadBull is a car you cant destroy, solid chassis, bulletproof gearbox, big tires that function as bumpers and shock absorbers - the full package.
