  1. Just finished this last night. From my rc top 10 all time most wanted list. the Blackfoot. ( will do all the 80´s monsters one day, so far this and Clod are only ones I got). I need to practise on the brush painting, the Ron´s fase is a bit tired, lol. Loving the Tamiya spray paints , after polishing and decalling it is really nice finish.
  2. No still not find any in reasonable price. you could pm me with a price and pic or 2. I live in Finland so shipping cost would be nice to know also.
  3. Ok I had 2 hours spare time and finally opened the box still needs wiring but this build was only 2 hours plus bodywork. will try and find more scale wheels
  4. Still no time to build, but i did throw some paint and decals (from MCI) at the body Tamico replaced. I dont drink, but the classis racing livery is one of my favs. windows are clear under the stickers , not sure to leave like this or clear yet I alao did another for hc bashing this shell i ordered locally. The damaged shell is too bad shape to paint.
  5. I really would suggest 2s hard case lipo. plenty room i the buggy (or my converted monsterbruggy). 10.5t should be plenty fast. (my mbruggy has 2s and 4600kv robitronic, 17t pinion ).It is a great basher car and thinking it would not be too bad at racing also, at club level attleast Shorty lipo would allow weight balance adjustments so that could be wise option also.
  6. Tamico once again proofed that they have great customer service. I complained about the body and they shipped a new body yesterday to me. when I receive it I can finally add some paint... (I still have no time to build the chassis)
  7. I know this is not a proper bash, but the durability of this little buggy amazes me. Nothing has broken yet. The massive tires add a lot of stress to gears and this little thing just keeps on trucking. will try to find some spot to bash next jumps etc to come
  8. Sadly the body has some molding/other faults. contacted Tamico and waiting their response.. I have something special planned with this build and cant use this body cause the faults. both doors have over a centimeter size faults and they are really visible in person. Cant do much for the build as the servo and saver are not here yet.
  9. Busdriver, amarok shell may be too wide? -The PL trenchers are nice size tires but..wow the Losi tires I ordered are mahoooossive! -will glue them and post pics soon... this is going to be a Monster!
  10. It is finally here... -The massive huge short course truck from Tamiya! -well..not that massive ,being 12th scale or new, released in 2012... -but I like it! and that´s why I got one. Bonus parts? The oil shocks? thats the bonus? -ok thanks lol. Or maybe the TEU-104BK esc that needs ubec so it will not fry the rx.Not that I would use it and nice to get one, I never had that unit.-and it has lipo cut off but 80´s style external battery pack or ubec needed... typical Tamiya innovations that I love and hate.
  11. Much better now. I only painted the bits that show. Plastic primer, rallye black and clear.
  12. The wheels arrived! -sadly the orange is a bit toy like to me, so on the paint booth... The tires and rest of the project should arrive tuesday, yay...
