  1. I can't help with a comparison to a Supershot as I've never had one, but I do find my Egress 'twitchier' than my Top Force using the same tyres (Schumacher cactus) on grass. It's a lovely thing to own though!
  2. Same here, it's a thing of beauty! I'm currently (as in tonight) building a Toyota Tom's RM01 that I'll probably never run in anger, but it looks ace. I run off road, but there's no denying some of the on road stuff trumps them for looks.
  3. Drunk ordered a Toyota Toms RM01! Probably going to get into trouble for this.
  4. Rebuilt my sons Top Force with new gear boxes, chassis, bearings plus a suspension rebuild. My Egress is a bit tired so he'll probably beat me on our home built garden track, he's only 5 so it's a bit embarrassing.
  5. We've moved the garden track from top to the bottom of the garden....there's no grass left at the top....... Also, ordered a TA03RS Porsche GT1 to build over the next couple of days
  6. Not Tamiya, so, sorry! But, today I noticed that Schumacher have designed an aluminium gear diff for the KR, LD and KD. I don't need it, I'll not notice the difference, and I could spend the money better elsewhere, but it looks really nice and I'll sleep better knowing I have one for my KR. https://www.racing-cars.com/news/news556/new-alloy-diff-conversion-for-cougar-laydown
  7. Got my 2WD runners ready for a thrashing in the rain tomorrow. Building my nephews new Sand Viper tomorrow too, so got my tools ready!
  8. Got these three ready for a blast tomorrow. Converted the Monster Beetle to a Hobbywing 1080 and Lipo, seems to go well with a BZ motor.
  9. Sorry for image quality! This morning, me and my 5 year old defied the tail end of storm Dennis!
  10. Good news! Tamico refunded the TRF driveshafts and I've simulated the 3mm bearing with washers and the suspension travel is back to normal. So, anyone that wants to do the DN01 / TRF201 Kyosho diff mod and finds that their suspension binds, you can fix it with £1.70 worth of 5x10x3 bearings. Thanks for the tip!
  11. Thanks, that's a much cheaper option if it works!
  12. Ah, just contacted Tamico to cancel! Annoyingly they don't do 42284.
  13. Sorry, one last question on this! Like you did, I'm suffering from the suspension binding due to driveshafts. I've found this at Tamico, is this what sorted it for you? https://tamico.de/navi.php?a=154850&lang=eng I only ask as the pic you attached a while back of the kit you bought has two part numbers on it! Thanks
