  1. Thanks all, I’ll follow the advice re: tools, had a quick look online and the Tamiya 8pc set as well as tweezers, scissors and side cutters all look reasonably priced. I’m thinking of making the Boomer a bit of a beast using a 10.5t motor 60a esc and 2/3S Lipo. Will an alloy shaft and metal bearings be enough or should I be upgrading any other plastic parts to hold that power?
  2. Thanks for the detailed replies, I was leaning towards the Boomer as it “seemed” the easiest just going off looks. I did forget to mention I’m not really a fan of the Grasshopper or Hornet so those are most likely out. I want to use the Tamiya carbon composite hop-up on the Top Force so that’s going to be my pride and joy and wanted some experience first! One last noob question, is there any guides or references that list the required tools to build a kit from scratch? Happy to buy them if necessary but last thing I want is to be mid way though a build and instructions are asking for ‘x’ size screwdriver or a fluid of some sort. Thank you again and I promise to post pics once I start the journey!
  3. Hi all, Frequent lurker but don’t post often. I currently have brand new versions of the Super Hotshot, Top Force and Boomerang and wanted advice on which is a good starter build as i haven’t built any of them. If there’s another model eg. Big Wig or Hotshot that are somewhat easier to start with then I’d be happy to spend my money there first as I don’t want to stuff up any of the above 3 I already own! Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I’m ready to start my first project!
  4. Hi, So I've finally caved on a Re-re Boomer to go next to my Super Hotshot and want the Boomer to become a little rocket using LiPo's and a Brushless setup. I've had no luck finding a Hobbywing EZRun 13T 60A combo so appreciate if the following can be reviewed including anything else that is a must have. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/trackstar-roar-approved-1-10th-stock-class-brushless-esc-and-motor-combo-13-5t.html https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-4000mah-2s-35-70c-lipo-pack-xt-60.html Original Tamiya 15T Steel pinion Open to any other ideas as it'll be more a racer than basher. Cheers.
  5. Thanks for the info so far. Is a 10.5T motor starting to push my luck on a Super Hotshot Re-release? Reliability is still #1 for me.
  6. Hi all, Tamiya lover for many years and getting back into Re-release buggys. Quick background - an uncle was an RC nut in the 80’s and had/still has somewhere, his original Boomerang, Falcon and Supershot and it was the Supershot that had a special place in my heart so I’ve just purchased a brand new Super Hotshot Re-release. To avoid waffling any further, I’m looking at this brushless combo below in conjunction with a 4000mah 2S LiPo. I’ve also got an original Tamiya 15T steel pinion on order. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/trackstar-roar-approved-1-10th-stock-class-brushless-esc-and-motor-combo-13-5t.html?___store=en_us Appreciate if anyone here can give some insight into whether this is a good initial setup for a nice, fast but reliable Supershot Re-re and if not, what would be a recommended sensors setup with a similar budget. Thanks for reading.
