  1. Couldn't agree more 😁... But absolutely understand those that collect NIB. I've just gotta build 'em!
  2. Another one! Nice, do like a 911. So you're up to 5 now.. Reckon you should go for the twelve days of Christmas and aim for another 7! 😁
  3. That would be cool but surely the drivetrain is way to exposed to stop the ingress of debris? The thought of scratching all that carbon makes me sad.. 😉
  4. ORV looks so much better in black, as does the Monster Beetle. Way less toy like in my opinion.
  5. Due to the higher current you'll want to solder on a new connecter. Remember to only cut and solder one wire at a time so as to not accidently short the battery. Deans or Xt60 are best for Lipo's... Oh I see you mean the speedo! Same advice but you'll not have to worry about a short.
  6. I use this in mine, plenty powerful enough plus a long run time.. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/peak-power-plant-lipo-2s-7-4v-5000mah-45c-deans/rc-car-products/405504 Use with a Hobbywing 1060 and a 19t double on standard gearing.
  7. Just for comparison I recently popped a 15t double running off a Lipo into a TT-02B. It had the 68t speed gear spur and a 19t pinion... It properly cooked the motor running on cut grass! Have since put a 17t pinion and the original 70t spur with a twenty odd year old 19t double with a heatsink and had no more issues. So I would definitely follow the advise above and go down a tooth or so or use a slightly higher turn motor. I realise the buggy's bigger wheels alter things somewhat but thought it might be helpful. The speedo is a Hobbywing 1060 for reference.
  8. I recently purchased the following set - LASER 7036 JIS Screwdriver Set 4pc Japanese Industrial Standard Screw Was £13 on eBay from a UK supplier. Four screwdrivers, excellent quality and fit like a glove into the Tamiya screws. Wish I'd got them ages ago.
  9. Thundershot please Mr Tamiya, and you can pull your thumb out Mr Kyosho... Optima Mid.. please!
  10. A set of JIS Screwdrivers... Sooo much better than being uber careful with a Phillips. As most have said wish I'd done it ages ago!
  11. I've no idea but the dimensions of it will definitely fit the Lunchbox.

    Nib?! Nope, never gonna happen. Gotta get straight in there, big deep inhale of all the rubbery, plastic goodness then the deep dive to the bottom of the box to release the manuscript of assembly.. Appreciate the desire for a collection however but I just couldn't do it. It'll be fun to build after the anticipation though. Is it the Agrios?
  13. I use this (I'm UK based) - https://www.modelsport.co.uk/overlander-rc6-vsr-80watt-7a-output-ac-dc-lipo-balance-charger/rc-car-products/408440 With the balance board I popped up in the Electrics section of these forums. The charger is excellent, does all batteries and is easy to use.
  14. @Badcrumble that's exactly what I was after when I got my Dancing Rider. I ended up buying the absurdly expensive LiFe battery and spent a day searching for a balance board to charge the thing! That'd be spot on with a Hobbywing 1060.
