  1. Oh wow, cool idea. Wonder how they hold up on a dirt basher... https://www.amazon.com/Hobbypark-Magnetic-Stealth-Invisible-Touring/dp/B016SYH1YE
  2. Lost Baja Rey is next for me, I think. I think that's the only 1/10 scale four-link suspension that reviews well out there...or at least, easily available for me.
  3. I dunno how much this helps, but EMS is what I've used to ship stuff around the world. Tracked and insured. They guarantee less than 2 weeks, but because Japan Post doesn't put the box in a corner to make sure it takes at least two weeks (like USPS etc) it usually takes less than two weeks. Often less than a week...! Are they sending by courier, or just marking up the shipping to make their money? https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/charge/list/ems_all_en.html
  4. Oh, Amazon Japan is great for price weirdness: I started a wee FB page to log the doozies. Pretty sure it's a money laundering scam... https://www.facebook.com/amazondrunkpricing/
  5. I tried to sell two things on eBay... The first was five years ago: a kiteboard, brand new, wanted $500. Someone "bought it now" and I sent him my PayPal details. Waited for a few days with no reply, then messaged him if he still wanted it. Next I know, eBay contacted me -- he'd opened a dispute saying he'd paid me by bank transfer but I hadn't sent the goods. I had clearly said in the eBay post "PayPal only". eBay closed it but limited how much I could sell per month. The next item was an inflatable kite, bar and lines. The day before I decided to sell it and posted it on eBay, I used it out for five hours, to make sure there were no issues. Sold it, shipped it, guy got it and was happy, but then the next week I get a message from him telling me he wants his money back because I got the date wrong (technical matter and I didn't), it wouldn't stay inflated for more than an hour (balls) and something on the bar wasn't working (I actually specifically used that feature for over 30 minutes and it was fine). After he tried to prove it was leaking, we narrowed it down to a very slightly leaking valve and I refunded him $30 to get a new valve put on. I would've been more reasonable, but his history consisted of him buying cheap kites then flogging them off for another couple hundred bucks more expensive So, never again with eBay.
  6. Oh mate, a video from Red Bull of a SCT or TT doing wheelies around sand dunes just popped up in my feed. Drool. I'm so getting a Losi Baja Rey as soon as I can. With an audio things Yeah Isle of Mann is insanity. There's a good Xbox game that really gives the feel of speed and pants-filling excitement. Can't imagine those nutters doing it for real. Sorry, I'm the off-topic king eh
  7. Completely off-topic, but the perfection that is top team rally suspension never ceases to amaze, absorb, and entertain me. Honestly, how could anyone think F1 is any good when you've to WRC?
  8. Boy I missed the bus on this business But this thread has me wondering about buying overseas and importing to Japan ... I want a Baja Rey but it's only eBay or direct from Hobby Horizon or whatever. Guess I'll have to email them.
  9. Postman brought me a new battery for my laptop I heard and felt it go "boom". Lithium batteries -- what fun!
  10. The "proper" ESS modules apparently have a lot of options for programming, so that could be fixed I guess...
  11. ESS One sound system -- anyone used one? Do they work with mechanical ESC? I've seen a few videos and they sound (and functions) a lot better than the budget ones. Also sound loud enough to hide all the electric whizz and squeaks. And I want a giant model engine for my Clod too.
  12. When it's windy: When it's a little bit windy: and RC when there's no wind at all Used to have bikes, but now with kids and a new work schedule there's literally zero time to ride. This was my last - and best - bike: ... although I still have an NS400R in storage that would love to be restored...!
  13. 2001 Toyota Voxy. Because two kids and a need to tote gear. I like my cars cheap and functional. Had the bikes for thrills but no time now, so sold them off...

    No more Kyosho?

    Yeah I had a feeling that guy was stretching the truth a bit, trying to get me to buy Tamiya
  15. I can drive to a shop and buy you one, or get 'em easy on Amazon Japan
