  1. Finished my other Lockdown project. Wanted a lighter body than the Pumpkin for my M-06 so chose the Nissan Silvia that Time Tunnel had when I bought my FF-03. Really happy how it came out, kinda "Land of the Rising Sun" with Tamiya blue?! 😁
  2. Great job, race buggies of that era just look so right.
  3. Kit for me, you can choose your own electrics and battery and paint it whatever colour you like. It's a very simple build and the body is easy to spray. I've found mine best with a little more poke than usual (21t double as apposed to the 27t Silver can) a Mtronics speedo which has the correct sized switch and a Nimh battery (3300mah). All cheap and allow at least 20 mins run time. I've a 3500mah Nimh that fits as well.
  4. That's awesome. Inspired. *eyes monster beetle body with hacksaw in hand.. 😉
  5. Second an ff-03. There's a few fans on here and I'm super impressed with mine. Only mods it really needed was the CVD'S.. Just for the better steering angles and to eliminate shudder and Schumacher Sst tyres. Got my Honda Civic from Timetunnelmodels, was around £115 I think.
  6. Try popping an o ring into the drive cup on the diff side. My FF-03 heeded a couple to keep the shaft stabilised.
  7. Easy, the endless tinkering. Takes my mind away from everything and I find it hugely relaxing. The driving after is only to really see what effect any changes have made so I can tinker yet again... 😁
  8. That's a blinding deal! Gutted I missed that! @ThunderDragonCyhow reliable have rcjaz been? Have ordered from RcMart happily in the past, are rcjaz just as good? To the UK obviously. Ta.
  9. @Wooster and @Potato749 heres a pic of my settings. No shimmie or wobble at speed, nor does it wiggle in reverse. Standard motor and the ridiculously expensive LiFe battery with a Tble-02.
  10. Renewed my Tamiyaclub subscription.. Worth every penny 😁👍
  11. Which ever way pushes the wheels a touch more parallel, haven't mine to hand at the moment. Pretty much this.
  12. I recently put DCJ's in my FF-03. Allowed me to increase the steering lock and removed all the chatter. It's a night and day difference, standard dogbones rattled and shook the outdrives at about 30 degrees of lock. The DCJ's are as smooth as butter at nearly 50 degrees of steering lock. Not cheap (I got mine from RcMart, took about a month to arrive) but have transformed how the car reacts to direction changes.
  13. The heavier body of the damper should be static whilst the much lighter piston and shaft compress. With it the other way round the piston is static and the body moves. As @ThunderDragonCy says the lightest point should be what moves for it to be more responsive. That's a great looking chassis, must have been ahead of its time. I've noticed all the current top end touring cars are going mid mounted motor.
  14. Yup, you wind them right down to allow the rear to pivot. They are only there to straighten the rear wheels whilst it's only front wheel steering. It's worth decreasing the kits large toe settings to. I found the best setting was when I could reverse without any wobble weirdly?! Fun steering whilst doing wheelies.
