  1. Hi @rwordenjr, Please check the photo of the Stadium front. For the rear, it's custom due to the shock mount.
  2. @rwordenjr could you please give the exact reference of the tires. Tks.
  3. Hi rwordenjr, I have some trouble with my original one too. I ordered Tamiya #51000. It's a strong one. Take care. Glob356
  4. That's I have done but I had also drilled inside the part to set a hex flat head screw. So the part was weaker after that mod. I won't do that again. I will use a button head screw.
  5. About the steering, I didn't go with this modification. Too complicated for now. I should rethink the place of the receiver and the ESC.
  6. Yes I ordered the stock ones. I hope I won't regretted when I will see your modification! 😁
  7. Hi. I found them on ebay and I created adapters. Please check my post: Don't hesitate to get back to me if you have any question or cool ideas to upgrade a Blitzer.
  8. Also, I can see that modifed the steering. What steering set did you use? Could you please post some pictures? I have some ideas but never really succeed. Tks
  9. Hi @rwordenjr, Could you post a picture of your modification? Tks. Glob356
  10. Hi guys, Hope everyone is going well. Some news about my Stadium Blitzer. 1. I finaly reveived the parts that I needed. The DF-02 Assembly Universal Shaft (53791 / OP-791) to replace the original that broke . They are are bit shorter than the original. So I added a spacer to the new Hard Joint Cup (new parts 53218 / OP-218). 2. I improved some settings, screws and the shock absorber mounts. 3. I broke the linkage of the front uprights! That's my fault. Wrong idea. I used flat head screws set inside the linkage. So it put a lot of presure on the plastic part. I already ordered new ones and I won't do the same mistake. I will use button head screws. 4. I bought a DT-03 stabilizer set. I have some ideas but if had already set anti-roll bars on a Blitzer, our advices are welcome. 5. Put the on/off switch inside the car to avoid the dirt. I will put something to cover the hole in the tub. 6. Cut the bumber and add a nice sticker inside. I always tought it was to big. Looks like the Tamiya Nissan Titan. If you have any idea to go futher in my Blitzer upgrades, don't hesitate to comment. Below some pictures. Have a great day and enjoy your Tamiya! Take care Glob356
  11. Hi guys, I wonder if someone has already set anti-roll bars on Stadium Blitzer. I just bought a DT-03 stabilizer set (54561 / OP-1561). If anybody has information about that, it will appreciated. Thanks ! Take care. Glob356
  12. Hi Tbc68, I have made some modifications on my Blitzer Stadium. Please take a look if you are looking for idea. Welcome to the Blitzer Club! Glob
  13. Hi everyone! End of October, my Blitzer hit a rock pretty fast and the result was bad (see picture). It was the end for this year (and the first snow was forecasted in November in Montreal). So I decided after that to rebuilt from scratch my Tamiya. The goal is to always improve it. I already ordered : - Tamiya 53791 DF-02 Universal Shaft - Tamiya 53218 Touring Car Hard Joint Cup Set - Rubber sealed bearing (blue) - Some Hex screws. No more regular Tamiya screws now - New aluminium hex drive 6.0 (black) - 2mm and 3mm epoxy sheet to replace some aluminium parts and for the rear shock mount I also fixed the small part under the gear case needed to fix the rear bumper. It was a self-tapping screw. Now it's a screw with nut. For that, I enlarged the existing hole (3 mm now) and insert a nut in a new hole just smaller than the nut. I used a soldering iron to melt the plastic by heating the nut and fixed it in the part (I hope it's clear. English is not my first language). I started to think of a new rear shock mount. I will be with more setting options to lower the car. I won't put back the long aluminium part that was supposed to strengthen the tub. The tub is losing his flexibility and that's put stress on the rest of the car. Seemed like a good idea but not in fact. I will post pictures with the new parts and the evolution of my Tamiya Blitzer Stadium 2020. Have a great holiday season! Glob
  14. Hi @Re-Bugged, Great job on the dust cover. Could you please tell the brand and model of the rear tires of your blitzer? Tks. Glob
