    Hi, Wires have been shortened. Receiver and ESC set in the car. Also, I want buy a new motor for my Blitzer. So do I have to buy a 21T or a 23T?

    Blitzer Stadium modified

    Hi! Long time no see. Some news about my modified Blitzer Stadium TRF . I tried to keep it with a vintage look. That's why I'm using aluminium instead carbon for my custom-made parts. What has been done the last few months? So I have 1. replaced screws by shafts and e-clips (thanks schuultzie51). 2. made a aluminium mount for the receiver and ESC. The goal is to be able to remove all electronics without have to double taped every time (and it looks really nice) 3. added a aluminium part to reinforce the chassis (low profile now) (and it looks nice too) 4. added cool TRF stickers 5. put in screws of good lenght where need it 6. changed the rear shock absorbers (waiting for the front) My next steps will be: - put back the electronics and cut the wires short and sweet - buy a GoolRC motor (21T or 23T). Advices are welcome. - buy a new metal gear servo (low profile) - put a new and nice body. Larger than the original maybe. - modified the bumper maybe (too big). Will see... Finally, if you have a sense of observation, you will have noticed that the engine cover is mounted upside down on my picture. See the Tamiya's logo. :-) Don't hesitate to comment. See you!

    Missing Tamiya Steering Parts

    Hi Waterbok, Avante or Egress bushing (5 × 4 mm - see picture) could work but the high is 12mm. I could manage one at bottom and one at the top with something between those two bushings. I looked at some manuals but didn't these steering arms. Will figure out. Pictures show what I hope to achieve. Glob356

    Hi Tamiyas, One of my goals with my Blizter is to "update" the car. It look's heavy. More like a toy than a racing car. A lot of bg platic parts like the receiver and esc mount. No carbon, no hex screw. So, I cut, I drilled, I used sand paper and here we go: 1. Removed the plastic part used for the receiver and esc. Cut in two to keed the battery fixation. Added hex screw. I use M3 × 20mm bit the are a bit too short. I have to buy longer ones. 2. Removed extra platic from the front body mount (just for the look) and put hex flat head screws (M3 × 12mm) 3. Drilled trough the chassis to attach the front suspension with a M3 × 45mm. Very common modification. On this picture, you can see that I have removed the top part of the chassis. It looks better without making the chassis weaker (according to me of course). 4. The same for the back (drill through). On the picture, I use M3 × 20mm (too long). I have just ordered M3 × 16mm hex button head screws. If you have any comment or advice, please comment. Have a great day where ever you are! Glob356

    Missing Tamiya Steering Parts

    Hi Max, Thank you for all the information. I need to find a carbon sheet to create the link between the 2 arms and also to fin a way to fix the arms to the chassis. I also want to replace some homemade aliminium parts by carbon parts. So the carbon sheet will be useful. Glob356

    Hi Collin, By Ackerman conversion do you mean reverse the uprights. If it's the case, I have already done that. By the way, the uprights were too close to the front arms. So I modified the upright supports (see picture). Removed some plastic and and spacers (3× M3 0.5mm).

    I have no idea. 😊 I have those from spare parts bought long time ago.
  13. Hi Guys, I have some steering parts that I want to use on my Blitzer Stadium but I don't have the aluminium mount (see pictures). If you know the number or code of this part (to fix the arms at the chassis) please comment. It will be really appreciated. Tks Glob356

    Hi Guys, Please find below the front shock tower details: 90° aluminum mount (20mm high) 4x M3 hex flat head screws 6mm (head included) 4x M3 thin nuts 2x M3 hex flat head self tapping screw 16mm (head included) 2x M3 hex button head screws (20mm) front shock tower from HSP You will notice on the picture that I drilled the plastic part. It's just to have space for the nuts at the bottom of the mount. I buy all my screws on ebay, most of the time from Hong Kong (it's faster than China) Don't hesitate to comment if you have any question. Glob356
