  1. Juggernut

    TNX 5.2R

    More progress. Finished up the gearbox. Pretty neat little 2 spd. I'm still not 100% sure how it works but amazed none-the-less at the ingenuity that goes into designing these vehicles.
  2. The F350 with MFU is on my short list. Been wanting to build one for years. It doesn't get more "scale beauty" then the Vanquish VS4-10 IMHO. I just received my limited black edition yesterday. It's simply breathtaking. Angels sang when I opened the box.
  3. An alternative to RoundUp is a mixture of vinegar, water, and dish soap. I'm not sure the exact ratio's, but I think 50:50 with shot or two of dish soap (I'm sure the recipe is on the www somewhere). My wife tried it and, while it takes a week or so, it ended up completely killing the grass. Time permitting I may start construction of my own crawler track. I'm quite inspired by these backyard track posts.
  4. Would love some info on your test bench. Is it homemade? Seems it would be easier getting an engine square off the vehicle.
  5. Pulled the trigger on something I've been wanting for a very long time: A custom cut CowRC Pro-Mag mat for the workbench! And been meaning to add one of these to my toolbox.

    TNX 5.2R

    FINALLY finding some time for my 5.2r restoration. I've ordered lots of replacement parts in the meantime. Getting the diffs rebuilt and put back together:
  7. I use MIP for hexes and nut drivers and Vessel (Amazon) for JIS. No complaints.
  8. DOH! Wow. I call those "Whats that all about then? moments"
  9. I've used a lightly damp, fine nap microfiber to clean trading cards with great success. Cards that I've purchased at a lower grade because of "wear" (turned out to be grime) that I swear I've increased a grade with careful cleaning. The first time I tried it, I was amazed at how much grime the microfiber captured off a little trading card.
  10. I'll add that I have used an automotive product with good results. No bash test on how well it does repelling mud/grime thought. It does make old plastic shine like new with no tacky residue.
  11. Anyone use a spray-on protectant for their runners, bashers, or even shelf queens? I'm seeing more and more RC specific products out there (who said RC is dead???). Lots of snake-oily claims. I'm guessing the majority of them are silicone based sprays. RC specific examples:
  12. I've been slowly but surely finding parts for my 5.2R. Though prices seem to fluctuate wildly. I went a little crazy on Tamiya USA's site because they still had a lot of stock. Picked up an unpainted body for $9.99. Also got two of the beveled ring and pinion hop-ups. The shock seals and o rings I found at Fusion Hobbies and they should be on their way. Still lacking 1 differential gear set and I need a gas tank, fuel lines and a filter. The original gas tank is lacking the primer pump. I'm slowly becoming an expert on all the TGM chassis and parts interchangeability Ever seen these in the wild? Would love to find a set. Also the TNX Pro? shocks. I think they are Pro Line.
  13. Which TNX? I'm currently working on a TNX 5.2R (43530) I picked up used and can't wait to get it fired up. Sourcing parts has been a bit of a treasure hunt. There's also a TNX 3.0. Haven't seen a NIB example in a long time so congratulations!
