  1. HAHAH nice, brother!... I've spent 150.00 on the police lights already..... roof bar, rear window traffic advisor, controller and headlights/tailights to flash, blue/red wigwams on the push bar, blue and red flashers in the fog light holes as well. Also Mirror flashers, flashing tail lights, brake lights and backup lights, ally lights and take-downs, lmao.... Most likely side marker lights on the rear spoiler. The GT-4 has a high rise rear spoiler and it's gonna be one awesome police car.....oh and spot light, hahah. Right now I am learning on what I have to get and do, to make this happen. Just figuring out the lights and how they can be controlled is the hard part....I never done anything more than simple on/off headlights, but they have such great electronics these days, it shouldn't be too awful hard.
  2. Probably not, I already got the standard Mustang GT-4. If I were getting into racing at a club, I'd wait for it, but I am not, so for the money I will have as much fun with a mildly modified Standard car. My plan is to build a semi scale police car with a full array of lights and a siren. Would be fun at camp and such, giving the kids a smile as well as the adults.
  3. I was thinking about that, but I just now went ahead and got the standard, Mustang GT-4 kit. I'm not a racer, just an occasional fun run at the park and stuff, so why spend too much on a real expensive chassis. I did get the spur gear option and yeah racing motor mount, plus ball bearings. That is all I plan to upgrade on this car, to keep it cheap and I only wanted to be able to put in a faster motor/pinion for more than stock speed. I already have a set of shocks I got for another car I was getting two years ago. Plan is to make a real nice, hot rod police car with it. The mustang body would be awesome to do so and I have a full police lighting kit coming from mytrickrc, as well. Paint will be black along with custom graphics to copy the sheriff patrol cars where I live. If I were to try racing and get into some serious on-road, I would get the more expensive options, but for me it's just fun and something to build, so why spend money where I don't really need it. A mildly upgraded, standard TT02, mustang cop car with blinking lights, is my goal. Can't wait for everything to get here....I literally ordered a half hour ago.
  4. I need another project and I want to do a Police car out of the Tamiya TT-02 Mustang gt-4 body. Of course that only comes with the standard chassis. I already got the lighting from mytrickrc. I could buy the body from Amazon and then wait for the SR, but I'm growing impatient. I'm tempted to get the standard Mustang TT-02 and do a mild upgrade to it, in bearings and the optional spur gear set-up so I can make it a bit faster than stock. Make a nice police body, install light bar and lights then call it a day. I have a set of TL-01 shocks for it and a new Super stock BZ I have sitting here doing nothing. Not racing, just an occasional run at camp on the pavement just for fun, no heavy bashing. Upgrading any more than that would be foolish. So I guess I'll just get the standard chassis.... I may get the SR if in fact, like on road RC. All I know is that Mustang GT-4 body is absolutley gorgeous and would look great as a hot rod police car.
  5. When's the new TT02 RS coming out? I know in 2020, but what month? I'm about to buy a Mustang GT-4 TT-02, because I can't wait any longer. I may get it anyways, just because of that Mustang body shell and build up a police car from it. Speaking of which, Who makes good 1/10th scale police light bars? Realistic and bright. So I'll probably get the TT02 Mustang fo rnow.....just can't waith any longer and I need that Mustang body.
  6. I received my FlySky FS-GT-5 and first impressions are....... I dunno yet, but it came in a crushed box as it was never shipped inside a protective package, just wrapped with foil paper. The box looked crushed so bad that I expected the radio to be totally busted, lol. I didn't panic too much because it was very cheap, not hundreds of dollars, but still. I unwrapped it and the radio was fine. I'm just going to say it.....It is no Futaba as far as feeling quality, it's light and very tiny like almost a RTR toy radio. I felt as it should come with a RTR Toy from Walmart. I didn't expect it to be as well made as a Futaba so it doesn't bother me that much. The receiver is very very small as well. I am going to install it in my Blackfoot xtreme to test it out, but I am not confident enough yet to put it in anything very expensive, AKA my Pro-boat. It should be a good radio I'm just so used to Futaba stuff, it's all I ever had for radio gear. Stay Tuned.
  7. I t has amazing lighting and I don't know how they are blended together and all that. I've just been playing around with a Vintage Canaon T-70 35mm, doing apertures and trying to get long exposure shots and such. I am having fun with it, but it is a challenge to get everything right, like the lighting....it is all about the lighting, IMO. Thanks, these pics give me ambition to keep practicing. Here is my current go-to camera, a Canaon T-70 from 1984 with a 50mm and a 80-200 zoom for now. I also have an AE-1 and a Elan 7n. Also messing around with a new Canon SL2 digital. My camera and a picture of a flower I did last year.
  8. I thought about selling it as a new build and make twice the money I bought it for, but the urge of driving it in the snow and mud, has overtaken those ambitions. The only hop-ups are full, sealed bearings and Oil shocks. I would like to go full aluminum and bigger shocks, but I'm thinking it will be a fun truck no matter what and I don't feel like investing another 70 dollars into it. So....a nice paint job and I'm happy with this build. I also have my Super BlackFoot I purchased in 1994 and it has sat on the shelf all this time. I plan to assemble it box stock with box art, for a shelf piece, possibly one battery or two, just to say it has run, but will be a show piece, as I don't believe this one should be bashed and is worth more than a BFX. I also don't believe in leaving them in the box, it needs to see daylight and be assembled like it should be. I should be getting to this in about a month.
  9. So when is this thing coming out for sale? Where was it heard about,
  10. I have cheap oil shocks called "team BlueStar" that are a direct fit for Wt-01 using stock mounting. I was thinking of the long towers and such, but if I get those I will end up getting all the blue aluminum parts easily spending 160.00 more on this truck. I decided to keep it stock stroke but improved oil ones. It's fully sealed bearings equipped with Fast Eddy. Painting it silver with black wheels in a week or so, then putting in my new FlySky FS-5 radio gear when it comes. Motor is a BZ stock, but breaking things in with the silver can first. Thanks for the body suggestion.
  11. I don't know why I am asking this, because I'm going to do it anyways, but would you bash and ride hard, a 2005 Blackfoot Xtreme kit? These worth anything at all anymore? I bought it back in 2005 and just assembled it last January and the body/electronics have yet to be finished. As soon as I do though I'm letting it rip, flip and basically, destroy it lol. Here it is in the current state of assembly.
  12. I'm wondering if this is a personal photo or a marketing photo from Tamiya? If it is personal then I take that you know what to do with a camera. Really nice and I'm toying in the relm of photography myself.
  13. Yah I was going to change the title, but......
  14. Can't find MIP screwdrivers. Seems they leave the Tamiyas and their J.I.S heads, out of the loop for hex only cars. I ordered some of the Hex drivers tho....seems they are one of the best you can get for RC. Thanks.
