  1. I didn't understand a word of that book.:-)
  2. I shall be getting the same light buckets from loops on my birthday (9days to go) so I might be back to as some questions, before I start cutting ...... Yours is looking good my friend.
  3. Or download a copy from here......http://www.green-oval.com/data/zeus.pdf
  4. Do a Google search for "Tamiya CC01 steering mods" Lots of hits come up, just work your way through them....ignoring the front mounted servo mod, and check out the others.. A lot of forum posts have been about the GPM kit being u/s, but with care and a bit of inginuity it can be made superb..... I myself have watched youtube videos of cc01 mods, and have cut and shaved a lot off of the arms and knuckles, fitted CVD.s and tuned the steering.....it's still not good, but it is much better than standard....and I will soon be fitting a modified GPM kit to get more.
  5. Also check out the Flysky gt3b. It is a wheel transmitter but also has the capability to be upgraded/modded to give up to 8ch
  6. Flysky or Turnigy FS-i6 6ch can be converted to 10 ch easily enough, good range and cheap rx. Only down side might be the mixing ability, only hass three mixes available.
  7. nothing major bot made an antenna for my Pajero..
  8. rcbearings x 3...evrything that I have ever ordered from them arrives quickly, and the price / quality is just so. even down the the 10 x 5 x 2.5 bearings for servos..................
  9. Conformal coating, that's what he is bringing me today.. Last weekend out it rained a bit......I drove through a large puddle.....I removed the battery and took my rig home......next morning I fitted the battery, drove my rig around the house for 5 minutes to try and replicate a small problem, encountered out on the trail......5 minutes and the car stopped......moisture in the Rx....another one burnt out....lines across my radio set...moisture again. So now I'm going to coat everything and put all componants into a waterproof box.....Gggrrrrrrr!!!!
  10. Todaqy my 25 mm wheel extensions arrived. So I made and fitted a spare wheel to the back door of my CC01 Pajero.
  11. I released magic smoke from a servo today, in trying to answer my own question, so I ripped the circuit board out of it and another that went bad on me and made two servo winches.....now to fit them.
  12. Hi Guitarman, like you I am also new to RC cars, after extensive research, I built my Pajero rally with a set of ball races, in place of the plastic bearings, as advised on ALL forums. Best place to buy is RC Bearings, UK based and they know bearings. Everything else is suck it and see, mine now has a homebrew four lingk rear suspension setup, and a bit more steering via forum advice and knowledge... I would advise bearings essential, and everything else, replace with better parts when needed........most aftermarket hop-ups are bling and not really needed. Tyres in the kit are pretty good if you want to stay on hard surface, but they are too hard for crawling, even light stuff, they will let you down, KRT Kongs are the tyre of choice for immediate improvements, around 96mm are about the limit before body mods are needed. Even 96 will strike the body on full articulation. Next upgrade should be a good higher turn motor......do your research and you will find a lot of info for the CC01. Best of luck, the CC01 is a great trail, light crawler rig and you will be surprised at where you can go with it.
  13. No you can't link to form a 3s. Both the batteries you have are 2s, and linked together would make a 4s if series connected and 2s if parrallel conected.
  14. Cheers lads, We both run the FlySky FS-i6 radios, and yes we've tried limiting the throttle channel on the radio, but as TurnipJF states, the torque is seriously compromised...I have ordered a 45 turn GoolRC motor from fleabay, we'll try that first, see how we get on. Once again, thanks for the replies.
  15. Hi all, I need/want to slow down a HBX Cross Tiger, that apparently is a Tamiya TL01B cloned chassis with monster (120mm dia) wheels and tyres. It is too fast for my daughter to handle, she comes out with my mate and I, we both have scale CC01's and use for trails and light crawling. How? What is a cost effective way of doing it? High turn motor?, new pinion/spur gears?. gru? Any ideas?.
  16. Many thanks Mad Ax....now for a high turn motor and new boots then.....cheers.
  17. My daughter has this car..it needs new tyres and a decent 2.4ghz upgrade before we can use it properly..also needs a high turn motor to slow it down. It has no makers name that we can se...but...on the front lower arms, the markings match my tamiya ones. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks.
  18. I spent yet another day, counting the hours down to Boxing day.,...when I can finally start to put together my CC01 Pajero.......please god grant me patience.....and be quick about it...
  19. Used to be a black one running around Gosport some time ago, I thought the body looked brilliant on top.
