    Why no stack??????

    So I am building the new Tamiya Cascadia. I was just wondering why they don't have a smokestack for it? I was really hoping to put a smoke system in it to give realism, but there is no stack (Exhaust Stack)???????

    Why no stack??????

    I know I can buy one. I just have always known Tamiya to never leave any detail out of their 1/14 scale rigs. I wonder why they didn't put one in this kit?????
  4. So I just bought one and it will be here Tuesday. Any suggestions? I have owned a King Hauler before.

    Academy Visto Build.

    So I bought this kit new. It came with a Carson .15 motor (Don't think it was the original motor) The air filter is definitely too old to use. So I ordered a Motor Saver air filter kit. I also ordered a CVEC tuned exhaust pipe. Just need to order an exhaust header, glow plug, fuel line and a fuel filter. Plus I want to replace the hubs the wheels attach to. They are the kind that do not have pins and I hate them. I think I can substitute some kind of Tamiya hub so I can use hex's that slide over a pin. Here are some pic's.

    Get used to it. If you bashed the Sonic or the Striker hard they always broke.

    That's sad! I went to my old submarine base and ran it where they have some really nice hills and jumps. There was a young couple that were admiring it, and they didn't mind the dust I stirred up as well!

    Installed a Modified RC 5B quick release roll cage on the Rovan Buggy. I also installed a Voltage Watch on it to monitor the battery!

    Was it a 5B? This is a 5th scale buggy not a 1/10th.

    Swapped out the Receiver Battery in the Rovan 5B. It was originally a 2000mAh and would last one tank of gas (1 Hour). Now I can run about 2 1/2 tanks (2.5 Hours) on one receiver battery charge. These are Sub C batteries. The same size used in 1/10 NiMh battery packs!!!!!!!!!!!!
