  1. @Ferruz that Samuri looks awesome, cool as.
  2. Absolutely this, a 3mm cutting tool to thread the ball cup first then lightly grease the turnbuckle before you screwit in. Easy adjustment and no more rounded turnbuckles.
  3. Dark metallic grey without decals or spotlights for reference, it's now on chrome M wheels as the 1/10 didn't help with turning...
  4. Just seen this, awesome job. Actually looks cooler than the original 😎
  5. We can do an Avante... 😉
  6. I have a Dancing Rider, it's great fun. Surprisingly stable and can be drifted on a slippery (dusty) surface. Not especially quick, I'm using a Tble-02 and the ridiculously expensive Tamiya Life battery but it runs forever and is safer than a Lipo. Having said that I'd go in with a Hobbywing 1060 and the small Carson Lipo which fits just to see how quick it'd go...
  7. Drive shafts definitely as the plastic out drives rub on the wishbone on full compression which is magnified by the soft rear springs inability to hold the back end of the car up. You can't really pop in to lighter oil as all that does is allow the rear to slap the deck repeatable. @ThunderDragonCy is right about the DF-03 spring set there bang on for the DT-03, I use those with 60w oil. I've got turnbuckles on mine front and rear and ended up very near the angles if I'd just left the plastic upper arms on so not sure I'd bother with those. The sway bars are so loose in their mounts that any effect they have is pretty minimal so I've left mine in as it's bit of a job to remove them.
  8. Switched the Cat K2 to a new Spektrum 2 Channel receiver so that it is now steer wheel like the Couger and CR-01, think I may prefer it now to sticks... Ran the Couger and DT-03 to compare its rear mounted motor against the mid mounted one of the KC. The Couger is like a lazer, it tracks wherever you point it... The DT-03 is more of a shotgun point it and it'll go somewhere in that general direction, it is way more fun however just because it's imprecise. I know you can't really compare these as it's apples and oranges but it was fun none the less 😁
  9. @87lc2 great colour scheme.. Is it based on the "The Fall Guy" truck? Colt Seavers would look right at home in that 😁
  10. Bought mine when it was on offer at Tamico a while back for around £200. It's fun in a slow kind of way, plus unlocking the diffs means you can run it much like a normal buggy as well. I've set mine up with a Spektrum Dx5c with switchable 4ws - front, front & rear, crab and rear only - which keeps it interesting to run. Only upgraded the drive shafts to Steel JunFac ones and added the extra clearance lower links. I'm not sure either was necessary however. They're a great quality build and definitely worth a serious look.
  11. Nope. Inspired. Looks great in those colours 😎👍
