  1. Hi everyone need help, I purchased a sandpiper and after building and running a few times Ive started upgrading or changing parts next on my list is the wheels, at the minute they're the grey dish type but I'd like something a bit fancier and also like to change the front wheel to a wider unit any suggestions would be very welcome
  2. yeah i did see that the tble was 60a but just figured everyone had issues before ah well i have a spare now ,as for pinion gear im on a 17t ,so if i put a 19t on my motor i should get a better top speed marginally ,i know im not going to get masses of extra top speed but enough to tell from a standard can also the sv i have comes with bearings already may possibly change the for a sealed set at some stage
  3. hi guys im a newbie and need as much help as i can get ,ive bought a sand viper and whilst bashing around on a local ground ive found my sv to be quick but not as fast as id like so decided to buy a absima b spec thrust brushed motor 19t and also bought a hobbywing 1060 esc as someone also told me the tble 02 wouldnt cope under pressure ,has anyone had dealings with this engine and what can i expect on difference in speeds ,ive already fitted the motor and esc but cant get out yet due to cr$ppy weather halting my playtime lol ,ive also read on a sale sight that the tble 02 s would run brushless motors down to 10.5t but whats the difference in t's between brushed and brushless???

  5. thanks everyone for your help i bought some tamiya paint ps and it does say for polycarbonate i did check lol the wife picked as im cr4p at colourcoding and shes picked an iridescent pink/gold number ps47 and a metallic orange ps 61 sprayed the car but was expecting more from the iridescent colour now when i look at the body in different lighting it does change ,il be buying a few bodies and trying different methods of applying ,has anyone got any tips on spraying the iridescent stuff ie do i need to back it with a black spray to get a better finish ,im trying to upload a photo off my phone but im no techy.
