  1. @BeetlaJuice I tried something similar-ish a while back: I found the tamiya monster beetle shell a bit too tight to fit. I used a kamtec Baja bug shell. Was v good fun having a go at this
  2. When running stock shock lengths on the WT-01 platform (Wild Dagger, Twin Detonator, etc), what’s a good upgrade if using the stock shock lengths? Or is it a given just to go to lengthened shocks with the bigger shock plate? How does stock handle vs lengthened? Have never run a stock shock length WT01 Thanks all, and Happy New Year to all
  3. To the best forum on the internet: happy Christmas to you all, and have a great break. It’s been a tough year, but from reading all your posts and words on this forum you have shown strength and hope and inspiration, and that we’ll get through this. So have a great time and my thoughts are with you all, even if I’ve never met you! Happy Christmas
  4. @Saito2 for me. Nice, deep, engrossing, and creative conversations. So thank you, Sir. (But there are many great posters here. Feel bad not mentioning them now...)
  5. Thanks all for the replies, much appreciated, will do some research then. This would be a new chassis / kit type for me, so need to do some proper reading up!
  6. Hi all, I think I once read on this forum that there was a better chassis to run the Tamiya 47437 Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR 1997 TT-01E Kit on. I just can’t remember what it was, although I suspect it was a TA chassis. Can anyone elaborate on this? Thanks 😀
  7. I got a mention on the wife’s forum under the ‘how many kits does your husband have and how willing are you to give him the boot over it?’ thread.
  8. Beautiful build, love the body work, and really really loving the photography. Great work overall.
  9. They have slightly different mounting arms and positions if you go by the manuals. Which you can read here - https://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/manuals.htm An awesome source of info if you ever want to see other cars / compare stuff / go off piste, etc neo fighter I think is side faced rear body pin mount, whereas racing fighter is a vertical rear mounting post.
  10. Top man @Finnsllc thanks for the links. Couldn’t find one myself somehow.
  11. Hi all, am trying to track down an unpainted Keen Hawk body shell. Anyone have one of these? Thanks
  12. Hey that’s not apples for apples....! Many F1 cars look beautiful, because of what it is they’re designed to do. The engineering and the form is incredibly interesting from a design perspective (to some people, not all, obviously). Whilst I’m not a fan of the current season F1 car ‘look’ (due to the rules which IMHO need revising), I find both examples of the types of car you picture above to be equally valid as cars and as objects of interest and beauty (love the Cobra!).
  13. So main difference between M07 and M08 is the handling, due to front vs rear mounted motor? In respect of this question about motor mount position, what's the difference that the wheelbase makes on these chassis? Is there a 'best' option for a 210mm wheelbase car for example?
  14. not a noob question at all! It’s likely that the car chassis rolls into the turn, and lifts the inside wheel, depending on if you're still accelerating or not. If the chassis is rolled slightly, the inside wheels will go ‘light’, as it’s not loaded up with the weight of the car. If it’s still slightly in contact over the terrain it can then ‘bounce’ if it’s momentarily deflected as it travels over the ground. If there was weight over the wheel it’d be pushed into the ground more and the shock would hold the wheel down whilst absorbing the impacts of the terrain.
