  1. Got a Hobbywing 10BL120 for the FF03 fitted, paired with a Speed Passion 6.5T.
  2. Made out of a led strip piece, traillights for the FTX Hi Rock.
  3. So after some almost a year, the FTX holds up really well, small upgrades here and there nothing too noticable. The other day I removed the not in function roof lights... placed a aluminium bar and put a dark sticker over it! The newest addition are trail lights under the chassis! Cut a few pieces of led strips... This is it finished! It will run off the lipo balancer cord. I tested the truck on 3s today, more top end speed and nice power. Uses very little power, so lights will not affect run time. (7,2V nimh, lights dimmed) (3s - lights super bright)
  4. Today I removed the roof light reflectors. They aren't in function anyways, now that they are taken down... It is a nice opportunity to find a neat way to put some bulbs into it. I used a 5mm aluminium tube to replace the missing lights. . Instead of painting it (it certainly will get scratched), I used a sticker. Before
  5. Thank you. I have currently at home a combination of 114T Spur and 25T pinion. In 64P that gives me a FDR of 9,57:1 Should work!
  6. I was thinking of putting a spare 6.5t speed passion motor into a FF03, what gearing would you guys recommend for higher speeds ? this is a rather hot motor as I understand. I would use rather 48P gearing.
  7. So... I truly now can say. My FTX Hi Rock is the superior vehicle over my friend's TRX4. It takes everything. I also mounted a ACE RC 'ThunderTIger' DS1015 servo, fast thing, almost like touring car steering. I bought the Louise CR- Rowdy 1.9 tires and RC4WD china deep dish rims. https://i.imgur.com/GQOxN97.mp4 (video) The FTX Hi Rock is wider-tends to tip over to the side with original wheels, and the new tires are like balloons and grip perfect on steep climbs. Front shocks got harder springs as the vehicle is pretty nose heavy, the rear damper mounts got raised for one hole, making the rear higher, which is good so the bumper does not catch the ground. My friend's TRX got aluminum bead lock wheels, they seem a bit of lighter, his tires are RC4WD Mickey Baja PRO. The TRX being very top-heavy and bumpers very low, just struggles. A few pictures of yesterday. A few pictures of yesterday.
  8. For the FTX Hi Rock Crawler, to replace plastic shafts.
  9. Installed metal drive shaft axles on my crawler. Changed for my FF03 speed run vehicle the CVD axles, as previous where really bend. The car wasn't running a few weeks until I got time for this. It was kind of a mix and match thing, two CVD axels from Xray and two CVD cups from LRP with missing parts.
  10. A new upgrade for the FTX Hi Rock arrived. Metal drive shafts, they are heavier, and I hope more durable, didn't have any issues with the plastic ones. All installed.3x Both on the car 8.50USD each from ebay. As visible on the last picture, I have added harder springs in the front, as the car is front heavy. Once ALU wheels with wider tires arrive, they will add much more weight. I am also thinking to buy metal portal axles. That would complete the truck.
  11. This sounds pretty much like it! In your opinion if I go on motor gearing with 1:1 I have a 72T spur and 71T pinion on a 3800kv motor, the LRP Vector x11 10,5T . with internal ratio 2.6 so a total FDR of 3.61 in this case. I believe 3800 is too high, I might rather use something like 1800-2500kv up to 4s in this case, maybe. In the meaning of speed runs.
  12. I know it is a old thread, but what is stopping a brushless motor from running on 3s. Could a Speed Passion 6.5T motor run on 3s ?
  13. I do not see gluing tires as a big ''issue''. Practice makes perfect. I am playing with my S18 Buggy, trying an 2435 8200kv, to see if it will work. Also instaled is the Traxxas 2mm pinion I got in the mail last week.
  14. Tell me more about these bumpers, I want the exact same for my Hilux... are those 80$ piece? First when I saw the price I thought it's a real 1:1 bumper
  15. It took me a few tires sets and a couple of years to evolve a good technique.
  16. I speak German very well, I communicate the sale with the seller per inbox on the site and pay with paypal. High risk, but in general I never had problems, please take this in consideration, not sure if you can use the site buyer protection features in NZ. edit: most people have no idea how much shipping cost to your specific country are. I do my own research and let them know about possible solutions. Sometimes it doesn't lead to an agreement.
  17. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/tamiya-tb-05-pro-4wd-1-10-elektro-chassis-58658-neu-/2297423222-249-6232 Hey, I have been looting this German site ebay-kleineinzeigen. Found a lot of great stuff for respectful, reasonable prices. Not sure what item location you prefer, but this might be worth a look.
  18. Have you tried rubber bands to hold the tires in place? I like to use them, not sure if it makes really a difference
  19. I always like to mention to my RC friends how folks on TamiyaClub have rooms full of cars. This is what I meant...
  20. I installed the Yokomo DMS Servo i got today, it's a 6k metal gear servo with a direct mount to chassis. I love it! I bought this car used but in great condition, I looked up what this all was worth new, and got little to say surprised. GBP 554,00 for a chassis kit and servo? no body motor esc etc... I wasn't really aware of this
  21. For my Yokomo BD7 2015, an DMS servo. This is the best deal I have made recently., bought as used with original box for 4x less than new.
