  1. I don't understand why Tamiya insists on producing this type of thing I guess. It's lost on me. Same with the comical releases.
  2. Grass is already popping where I put it down earlier in the week. Should fill in nicely around this turn. More scale guardrail put up around it too. Untitled by Joe, on Flickr Untitled by Joe, on Flickr Untitled by Joe, on Flickr Untitled by Joe, on Flickr
  3. I ditched my homemade velcro body mounts on my XV-01 and switched to the stock body post setup. For a runner the stealth body mounts are too much hassle getting the body on square and sitting nice. Body posts give you the ability to adjust the body height too which is nice on a rally car. Yay for body posts!! Untitled by Joe, on Flickr
  4. Nice! I bet with some street tires you can get a couple MPH more out of it!
  5. For me it's the M-05 Mk1 VW Golf in Kamei livery. I love Volkswagens and I like that there's a real 1:1 car that the car is based on. Untitled by Joe, on Flickr
  6. I worked all weekend on this section. It was a lot of labor but I enjoyed it and I'm pretty happy with the results. Just got to get some grass to grow on the turn surrounds. The soil - cement mixture seems to have set up pretty firm. I'll have to see how it holds up to the rain and if it helps resist wash outs. Untitled by Joe, on Flickr Untitled by Joe, on Flickr
  7. It's been awhile but I had that same motor in my Neo Fighter with what I think was the stock Tamiya TBLE-02 ESC. I ran it like that until the motor got cooked. It's a good motor, fast, and it took a real beating before it gave up.
  8. Very good to know, thanks! There's not many other options for legit looking chrome paint. I'll have to grab some next time I'm at my LHS.
  9. How was it using Motolow Liquid Chrome? I've seen it at my LHS but I haven't heard much about it.
  10. Thanks! It is a lot of fun! Yesterday I started on that bottom turn. It needed more dirt and to make the downhill transition a little smoother. In the video I had been going around it onto the driveway. I was reading online about 1:1 dirt road construction and how it's a common practice to add cement to soil to help bind it. I'm going to get a few bags of cement and sand today and mix into the soil in this corner on the hill to help stabilize it and get it packed down nice. Untitled by Joe, on Flickr I also went from driving my bone stock TT-02 rally car with the pogo stick shocks to the xv-01. They are like polar opposites in handling. Definately need to upgrade to some CVA for the tt-02.
  11. Got the Land Rover out today and took some pics. Everything has really grown and filled out since last spring.
