  1. Great it works now! As for the ease of work: I've seen bodies with cut outs to make work/life easier.
  2. I have them both (Fox and Novafox) but run the original completely vintage (Futaba AttackR) and the rere with ESC and 2.4Ghz. As the Fox was my first RC car, I was used to dismantle it every time before I got other cars (so I don't mind). Is your antenna sticking out of the Fox coffin? :). Can't imagine why the car misbehaves if your testing was ok.
  3. Hello oldtimernola Do I understand it right that you run a modern receiver, but the vintage MSC of the FOX? You tell us 'I even switched the channel and both servos work fine.' Was the throttle servo connected tot the MSC at that moment an d were the motor cables connected to the motor at that moment? If so did it go wild then? My fox goes wild like this when the receiverswitch is malfunctioning. What also could be the issue is that the MSC is not working properly. How scratched is the plate? Is it lubricated ok? Kind regards, Walter
  4. Hi Golden Having two kids driving Hornets and driven a Hornethoppersparepartscar myself I tend to be in favor of the 'old Grasshopper Way' front suspension without those spacers and O-rings, or upgrade tot the Grashopper Super G way with mini oil filled shocks. Actually we also prefer the plastic flange nuts (A5 plastic parts) above the metal one to mount the shocks on the front arms (stage 17 in the manual), as we lost all for metal nuts while bashing. As for the rear tyres, see our video:
  5. Thanks! Received my Super G today and the front supension 'feels' better at the front with those yellow CVA's but the car isn't ready to be driven yet.
  6. Great to see this restoration. I have a G2 and a Super G is on its way (because of the yellow mini cva's and the fluo wheel rimms). What diffetence did you experience between the black and the yellow mini shocks?
  7. Yeah these orange wheels are very very wanted! Same here.
  8. Never saw that sway bar before! Sure looks better then the one that comes with the Nova Fox. Did you fit in the Nova Fox Dogbones/shafts? In what I read above I get a bit confused. The Fox shafts come with C-rings, Nova FoX shafts with E-rings but the c-rings do'nt fit the Nova Fox Shafts and de E-rings do not fit the Fox Shafts or am I wrong? Thanks for posting the pics and enlighten me on those rings! Walter ps: feel free to send me those c-rings if you do'nt need them
  9. Dear Tamiyaclubbers I'm lucky to own a couple of vintage transmittors (Acoms, Futaba, Robbe) but it seems the range is much shorter then I remember from my early RC day's (late 80's). After 30 -40 meters the cars (FOX, Hronet, Grasshopper) connection is lost and the cars just go wherever they want to. Am I doing something wrong? Tnx for your advice Walter
  10. Finished a basherbody for my Novafox in Foxcolors
  11. Cleaned up my vintage FOX and retired it on the shelf
  12. Found another example: painting stripes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fXfazftU8A
  13. Look at this example but with the Hornet body you'd have to work inside out: https://youtu.be/1LIM5s_L0kE
