  1. TURNIGY TRACKSTAR SCT 5T SENSORED BRUSHLESS MOTOR 4150KV. bought this for the project I am building at the moment, it’s way to big. Is it a viable option for another project, a crawler perhaps. Otherwise it’s get an SCT or just sell the motor. seen an old Turnigy Troop for sale cheap, I am tempted.
  2. Top deck is finished it will hold the shorty battery. Next step is to tidy up all the aluminium plates I have made and give them a brushed finish.
  3. Finally finished mock up, body is mounted using lunchbox mounts, still needs a bit of tweaking. Front is a little to high and need to trim the front wheel arches a bit, front edge and bumper are in the way.
  4. I think 100 posts makes you a member
  5. Lol, plan B cos motor is a lot bigger than I thought. Put it aside for a future project (possible monster truck build or crawler ) going back to the 13.5 I already have.
  6. ether of these https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254410520779 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F174073296130
  7. I believe the larger silver collar does the job, but it was a year ago I used it, so memory is a bit faded.
  8. Yes the arm broke, used the gpm high torque servo saver, M4 steel turnbuckles and silver M4 link rod ends. Works great now, started to use these servo savers on all my cars.
  9. I tried one of those on my lunchbox, the alloy version, it broke. Made my own in the end. 5mm rods, steel ends and servo saver been great since. Possibly overkill 😀
  10. Just stumbled across this while browsing the interweb, looks interesting. It has always been in the back of my mind to get a monster beetle, but I have a Lunchbox and it’s a similar build, so have have gone with different models (3 waiting to be built 😁). But this seems to tick 2 boxes, Monster Beetle and crawler, I would like to build a crawler from the rails up so to speak (eventually). Just looking for people’s thoughts on it.
  11. Made a few more pieces today, top deck to hold the battery. Body mounts, wanted to use the alloy lunchbox mounts as I can then make use of the holes already in the shell, still need to mount the front bar. Ordered a motor from hobbyking too. TURNIGY TRACKSTAR SCT 5T SENSORED BRUSHLESS MOTOR 4150KV.
  12. Managed to find a good Tamiya Catalogue from 1989, I was 15, it had all the ones I wanted and didn’t get. 😢
  13. I have done a short build thread in it, it’s a slow build so far, have had to make quite a few parts.
  14. Finished mocking up the bottom plate for the chassis today, just the top plate to do. It’s going to have to be larger than planned as I still need to place the esc and battery (a shorty hard case Lipo I have on order).
  15. Ooh, and I bought myself this to listen while I work, so to speak. A Bluetooth Docking D speaker sound is ace for such a small thing.
