  1. @Mad Ax maybe you should put the source for your web app up on somewhere like GitHub? Then maybe we could get a community project going from it.
  2. I've bought a set of Jazrider ones for my re-re Boomerang. Not fitted them yet though. I went with those after @ThunderDragonCy said he'd fitted some to a DF-01 and not had any issues.
  3. Were there any pictures with the article? Which issue of RRC was it in? Anyway your Astute won't need a servo sitting on a shelf
  4. I think I have some of those on the Super Sabre I bought last year (and haven't looked at since). It's certainly got adjustable arms fitted and I'd wondered what the origin of them was.
  5. It was only one at a time, and several days apart
  6. Mostly this week I have been missing out on things on eBay. Missed out on two Terra Scorchers as well as some other odds and ends
  7. Just seen from Tony's Tamiya Parts that the Top Force Hi-Caps are getting another run.
  8. I'm sure that, in the not too distant past, I saw somebody say they'd bought a set of Traxxas (E-Maxx??) shocks for a decent price. My search-fu is failing me and I can't find the post. So who was it? And more importantly, where did you get them?
  9. Anybody have any thoughts on the different ones linked to in the previous post?
  10. I spent some of Sunday trying to race my Boomerang on the very wet track at this years Iconic Revival. With all of the water having possibly killed some of the electrics I thought I'd start a topic to find out what people do to try and waterproof things. I'm asking from the "racing the Boomerang" point of view, but it would apply to other models and There are some obvious answers such as fitting waterproof electrics to start with and putting receivers into balloons etc Those kind of things require a bit of foresight and planning (both of which I was severely lacking ) One thing that occurred to me on the way to the Revivial was the balance plugs on my Core RC stick lipos - I was fairly sure I didn't want them getting wet, but I didn't know what to do about it. I ended up wrapping them with some electrical tape. Also with the motor being exposed and having vent holes and an exposed sensor cable/port, what's the best way to keep that clear of water? So what are your top tips for waterproofing?
  11. Is the "Build tips and techniques" sub forum meant to be in the Sales section? It seems a bit of an odd place for it
  12. Thanks for the input guys. So far I've found 3 options for alloy TA01 knuckles... The ones @ThunderDragonCy linked to - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132884733272 Some Fastrax ones - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202637983353 And some others - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F330609491787 Of all of those, I like the colour of the ones in the last link - it looks the closest to the blue of the stock units. Is there a preferred make for these kind of things? Does one manufacturer have a better fit/finish than others?
  13. Do you have a link to the ones you bought? I've got some TA01 ones in my eBay basket but haven't pulled the trigger in case they weren't right. I know that the TF uses the same knuckles as the Super Sabre - when I rebuilt the TF I needed some knuckles so used ones I had lined up for a Super Sabre rebuild. But I'm not sure if the re-re Boomer uses the same ones or not. As you say it's a minefield!
