  1. Robbed the BEC from my TRX4 as that one is currently out of order and installed it in the Clod. So far so good, and it runs fine, will be running it some more in the weekend. Next step is going to be a lexan body so I don't trash this one
  2. Hi @J@mes those are 3d prints to lock the rear steering. They work really great. I replaced the RX, but the issue persists, I probably need a BEC for the servo, going to install one soon.
  3. I have a TRX4, started as the Tactical Unit but I removed the difflockers and a lighter body, so basically a Sport with 2 speed now. Performs fantastic, had pretty heavy 1/8 SCT setup in it for a while, and handled that without a sweat, no damage whatsoever. Was in doubt between TRX4 and SCX10 II, but Axial parts support around here is really bad, so that helped me make the decision to go for the TRX4.
  4. Got the anti rotation brackets and arch fab bumpers mounted. Also installed some 3d printed lockers for the rear steering and cleaned up the wiring, only to find out the RX I used is defective. On the bench and smooth surfaces it works fine, on rough surfaces it shuts itself down and won't turn back on
  5. I had the same with my Xerun motor, then someone gave me the tip to first add more solder to the existing connectors and heat it up. That did the job for me and I was able to remove the connectors.
  6. Received the Arch Fabrication servo mount bumpers last weekend, now I need to find the time to install them. But I forgot to order a set of servo savers/arms, which ones are recommended when running a dual servo setup?
  7. Went for a nice clean look! Also had it's first test runs around the neighborhood, but it had a lot of issues with steering. Steering one side is fine, but zero to none steering to the other side. Been trying a lot with no results, with all wheels off the ground it steers fine both ways. Apart from that, it is a lot of fun, already got some dents in the rear bumper from wheelies So I ordered the first custom parts, a pair of Arch Fabrication servo mount bumpers
  8. That module sounds great, really need to look into that
  9. Started on the body last weekend, decided to go for a yellow body. Also the metal anti rotation brackets have arrived thanks to @whahooo, thanks again! I have just started with primer on the main body.
  10. Yeah, only had a short test run, but already the most fun car to drive in my collection! Decided to go with a nice yellow body, been a bit busy lately and hope to put on the first coats of primer somewhere this week. Same here, has been on my wish list for years.
  11. Had some time to finish up the chassis. The metal axle braces were a pain to mount, but got them on in the end. Took it for a test run in the living room, and what a fun to drive a Clod! Steering needs some work, but it works. I also had some ideas for the body but not made a decision yet.
  12. I received the kit last friday and started working on it yesterday. Done the basic steps for the chassis and started on the axles. The diff step took me way longer than expected, thought I was missing 2 of the pins holding the spider gears in place, but they were stuck inside the spacers which are used for the motor screws, took me a while to find that out But man is it huge when you are used to "regular" 1/10 cars like onroads, buggies and crawlers
  13. Got hold of the last Super Clod Buster from a local shop. Hope to get it next saturday and start building . My anti rotation bracket order got cancelled, the seller didn't want to ship to NL, so I need to find another set. Also need to find a good receiver for my FrSky TX, but everything in the local shops is out of stock and expected to be back in stock somewhere in June, so I'll probably order that through banggood or aliexpress.
  14. Probably It flies with that motor, only had to tone down the punch a bit to keep the front wheels on the ground. But changed to new pins in both CVD's and ran 4 lipo's without issues, seems the standard ones in the 3Racing CVD's are a bit on the softer side.
  15. Finished the rebuild of my DT-03. Only to destroy one of the pins in the 3Racing CVD's 20minutes later
  16. A few Tamiya's and some other brands: Tamiya DT-03 Tamiya CC-01 Tamiya TT-01 Tamiya TT-02 Tamiya DF-03RA Tamiya XV-01 Team Associated B4 CrossRC HC6 Axial SCX10 Dingo X-Ray M18MT Serpent Spyder SRX2 From this list only the CrossRC HC6 is still in my posession, and recently aquired a slightly used DT-03 Waiting for the Super Clod to get back in stock and add to this list.
  17. Picked up a used DT-03 and started to take it apart for repairs and maintenance. Has a broken chassis.
  18. I noticed this also, I am 33 myself and have always liked Tamiya, but around here almost everyone is into "bashing" with Traxxas, Arrma etc, I don't see the fun into that. Whenever I mention Tamiya on meetings or when visiting the LHS most people call it too expensive, crap or overpriced toys which cannot be used for anything, with no arguments whatsoever.
  19. So, I decided on building my first Clod. Got the bearings, servo and metal anti rotation bracket on the way, still need to order some steel pinions which seem to be out of stock everywhere close by. I order most of my Tamiya stuff at Tamico, sadly both the Super Clod Buster and the Black Edition went out of stock the day I wanted to order mine... They still have the Bullhead, and as far as I know they are the same, but I am no fan of the Bullhead body myself. While waiting on parts to be delivered and for the kits to get back in stock I have been thinking out how I want my build, fun to do, not so fun when calculating the cost I will first build it mainly stock with bearings and the metal anti rotation bracket and upgrade from there. I really like the look of 4ws, so 2 servo's on the axles will probably be the next step, already looking for a nice mount. Not sure if the stock ESC can handle 2 servo's, so I will probably upgrade to a HobbyWing 880 at the same time. Some yellow JConcepts wheels and golden years tires to fit in with the colour scheme I want. Seen a Clod with a sound unit in it, always wanted to put one on my crawler, but have no room for it, so I will use the Clod for this now As I don't want to wreck the stock body, what other bodies fit? Only Clod specific, or will bodies for something like a Traxxas Stampede or Revo fit as well? Any other recommended parts I can look into? Shocks, axles, links, gears?
  20. Not much yet, around €60 in DT-03 upgrades, €50 for a used DT-03. Will change when I start ordering Clod Buster + parts
  21. I got a good deal on a used Racing Fighter, needs a new chassis as the current one is cracked, but has some hopups already installed. Will be picking it up somewhere next week and rebuild it with some shiny new hopups I already bought
  22. Currently driving a 2017 Renault Captur, has most options and luxury enough for me, nothing too fancy but does the job I have always been a fan of the more sporty vehicles, Focus ST, Impreza STi, Lancer EVO etc. But with the Dutch taxes and gas/insurance prices a decent car like that costs way more than I want to pay monthly for a car, especially combined with the amount of km's I drive on a yearly basis.
  23. Yep, I have had a lot of different cars in the past, most of them got a lot of runtime. But a few I haven't run before selling them again. I also have a newly built 6month old CrossRC HC6 on the shelf, only built it over the past few months and had a test drive in the living room, thinking of selling it, but seeing the quality issues I had when building I am also a bit hesitant to sell it as don't want to sell my mess to someone else. But also had quite a few cars which I sold after only a single test run.
