    Environmental Impact of our hobby.

    If Shapeways can get prices down to a sensible level - totally agree, atm it is not really affordable for anything other than custom parts. Also, your substrates need to come from somewhere - right? At some point shipping is going to happen, minimising it is the key.

  3. I sell a replacement version on shapeways if that's of help?
  4. Shapeways is the biggest marketplace, search on there for "Madcap" and youll see everything that is printable there. There is no universal way to search every site.
  5. Smallest you can get away with to minimise weight (not that its a big issue these days - just feels bad).
  6. If you do the gearbox, be prepared for some alignment pain Also, I suggest swapping the internals for modern ones so you can get more diff options. With your susp arms have you considered recesses for proper bearings? Would be PLUSH.

    Newly arrived Lazer ZX

    Looks to be in great shape. Show us without the shell on.....
  8. Anyway to fit an ARB on the front? That might help and allow you to free up the rear a bit & add back a bit of droop.
  9. I fancy a Cougar 2 but cant bring myself to pay for the works version. Also a Yokomo Dogfighter - probably a 94. Expensive tho.

    Dyna Blaster going TRF211X

    Give the poor thing a body......
  11. Immediately looks better.
  12. Ds just looks wrong without the proper wheels
  13. You need new front wheels.
  14. I still have it, although I swapped out the shell (not my colours). I have an almost fully original Astute now as well

    TRF211 / TRF201XM/XR/XMW 3 gear Layback Dirt setup

    Never really hurts to pop it on shapeways right? Someone, someday might need it. At least thats my philosophy.
  16. I like the thunder dragon. Specifically the ying yang decal.

    Top Restoration Tips Thread

    Get a sonic bath. A dremel, polishing wheels and compound. White spirit to get rid of grease. Warm up your ebay account for searching for the "one" rare broken part you need.

    Dyeing shocks

    Unused shocks, rit, boiling water for 45m. I've dyed tons of stuff and it just wasn't taking. I wonder if the plastic varies with cvas.

    Dyeing shocks

    This is weird. I have white cvas too but mine didn't take dye at all.... Like zero...
  20. You should check out the orb racing ff210. 3d printed (done right) is plenty strong enough for structural parts. It just takes some care in design (ie don't just copy moulded parts)

    Dyna Blaster going TRF211X

    Are those wheels just painted dyna blaster ones? Or is there a grey variety I'm unaware of? From experience dynablaster wheels don't take dye....
