  1. ouch ! did you prime it before the silver went on ? Nick
  2. Hi, yes you can fit lights after the truck is built, although it is easier to do it during the build. As to what to go for , that depends on what you want. Do you want all the sounds too ? if so there are various units that will give you sound and lights as well as acting as the ESC, The Tamiya MFC works well but there are other options. If you just want lights then something like the GT power light set works well, I have one of those in my Globe liner along with a stand alone sound unit. For the trailer it depends , if you have the Tamiya MFC then it will run trailer lights via a plug on the back of the tractor, my globe has a second GT power light kit in the trailer along with a a second reciever so the trailer replicates the lights on the truck. Have a browse in the Trucks and Tanks section of the forum, there are loads of builds in there that will help. Nick
  3. I do exactly the same, between RC and airsoft I've got quite a few Lipos and recon that this is about as safe as they can be stored.
  4. Same with the 911's Tamiya do, 934 , 993 GT2 , the early one they do, all should be RWD but are 4wd. Well my GT2 isn't 'cos i removed the drive to the front. Nick
  5. Charger set for 3s by accident ? Ive done that and had a low voltage warning. Try giving it a non balanced charge to get voltage up then revert to balance charging. Nick
  6. One of the benefits of never having kids, we get to spend on ourselves Nick
  7. Coupe, I prefer the lines which I think are classic, then there is the interior ! And we've the Z for sunny days. Nick
  8. For me it's 1:1 cars, still got my MG midget which was my first car at 17 (more years ago than I care to think about) BMW Z3 , Audi TT MK1 . Then there is Guitars, mainly Gibson electrics. And over the last couple of years i have gotten into Airsoft. For those not familiar it's a combat sport related to paintball. Great fun and good excersise , and you get to shoot your mates ! I actually find that stripping and building many of the guns is quite similar to working on the RC stuff. Nick
  9. If all else fails you should be able to get them from a local Fasteners supplier or ebay will have loads. The first '3' relates to M3 thread , so the 3 x 32 is a 32 mm M3 with counter sunk head etc. Nick
  10. A mate at school got a Scorpion when they originally came out (1980 something) . I remember being impressed with it , obviously not a patch on my Sand Scorcher but very good. All joking aside, I do recall it being pretty good so I dont think you will be dissapointed with one. Nick
  11. What an amazing build, looks truly stunning so far ! But I do wish Tamiya wouldn't insist on putting 4WD chassis under classic 911's Keep up the good work and keep the updates coming !
  12. I always used to get mine from Maplin, but that's no longer possible. Did buy a load on line a couple of years ago. Suggest doing a google or looking at ebay.
  13. For the neatest result it's going to be lots of drilling and LEDs. That way all the wires etc are hidden inside the trailer. Nick
