  1. @J@mes I think the demand is high, however their contact form automatically sends a reply email saying they will get back to you in 24-48hrs. Not heard anything in three weeks. I think the price is very high to start with, so I'm not going to order one. I contacted the UK distributor to see if they will be stocking them, and was told (they replied the same day!), that JConcepts would only be selling them direct from their website due to the low margins they are working with on this product. So, I'm going to give it a miss.
  2. I've emailed Jconcepts three times in the last 3 weeks asking when they are getting more stock in and a couple of other questions about the chassis build, and have had no replies. Shame really as i was ready to order one.
  3. Just click on 'edit' on YOUR first post in the thread, and then edit the title at the top of the page.
  4. I managed to do mine on my Frog build. I used a 120w soldering iron. I also added some flux to the joint to help with the heat transfer. Came off fine.
  5. Ordered from RCBitz. I'll see how they go. I really like the Proline closed cell inserts, but at nearly 40 quid for 6, I'm not sure I can justify it. We'll see.
  6. How odd. I know Martin from rcbitz and hadn't even thought about those. Thank you. I'll get some ordered. How are they in the wet?
  7. Looking for recommendations for some good foam inserts as I'm trying to finish up my Konghead. I have used these in the past, but find them a little too soft.: https://www.modelsport.co.uk/schumacher-1-10th-truck-2-2-foam-tyre-insert-soft-/rc-car-products/16890 I really like the Proline 6194-00 dual stage truck foams in my Lunchbox but they're long discontinued. Has anyone tried the Proline closed cell truck foams in Lunchbox tires? https://www.modelsport.co.uk/pro-line-1-10th-truck-closed-cell-inserts-2-/rc-car-products/359771
  8. Couldn't agree more. I've been on a lot of other forums that the usual reply to a question is either use the search function, or some clown would post up a "Let me Google that for you" link of the same question.
  9. Amazing, thanks for your help. *edit: Shame all the pics have gone.
  10. Thanks for that. I'll see if i can find it and take a look.
  11. Thanks Cy. I did see those and wondered how 'needed' they were. Doesn't seem to be much info online about chassis's breaking.
  12. I've been doing some research in to the Blitzer Beetle. Seems the only weakness is where the front suspension bolts to the front of the chassis. Has anyone had any issues with the chassis snapping at the front? And, are there any other issues with the Blitzer? I'll be running a Hobbywing 10BL60, 13.5t motor and 2s lipos. I assume Lipos will fit in the chassis?
