    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Chassis built, mandatory lap of the living room completed. Next step is the body, bit of paint here & there, few stickers then off to work for the dump truck... I mean off to play! A mate suggested using it to serve sweets at a party but he didn’t realise it’s a wheelie machine. I like the idea so I’ll probably get a few photos of it full of sweets before it gets dirty.

    numerous cars on 1 handset is a really nice development in technology, love it!
  4. Awesome! Sweet machines... Thanks for sharing this. Kept me entertained whilst some toddlers are napping 💤 this turned my head!

    Assembled some shocks to use on when my GF-01 arrives next week 😀 used my new magnetic mat 65mm between the hole centres. The barrel springs are soft/front medium/rear. The shock movement feels nicer than the old school yellow cva’s I built recently, although they had double the travel.

    This is probably a silly question, can you tell the difference between an XB and something a regular joe assembled? (If it wasn’t in the XB box how would you know?)

    This KBF got its 1st taste of freedom after 22 years. It’s 1st run was on Worthing seafront today. End Point Adjustments allowed a 2 & two 3 year olds to have a taste of vintage RC monster truck action too. Managed to keep this one out of the wet stuff 💦 Great fun watching it bounce over the pebbles, it did a great job!

    More ORV stuff for me today, a King Blackfoot got its electronics from the last century swapped for some new stuff. A TBLE02 and FS-GR3E & this things popping wheelies in the living room. It’s also the first time the servo covers been fitted. Credit to the previous owner the things immaculate and came with bearings but I’m going to have a look in the gearbox because the friction shocks were greased with what looks like hot glue from a gun.

    Thanks @S-PCS . The gold makes the difference & I love it, credit is due to @jonboy1 I saw he used translucent red over gold on a monster beetle & I ran with the idea (albeit with orange and on Lexan)

    Got my Brat shell finished. It’s been a learning curve & the result bears the blemishes to prove it! It’s going to get driven so I don’t mind the overspray wonky cutting creased decals and other flaws. Looking forward to getting it mounted & running oh an in the showroom 😉
