    TT02B Motor and ESC?

    My son runs a 9t Brushless setup in his and its pretty good all round, although it keeps killing the plastic bevel gear on the rear of the prop shaft, im pretty sure the metal DF02 diffs and bevel pinion gears fit, could anyone confirm before i spend money on them.

    Tamiya bigwig steering

    Hi everyone, my steering works fine, but doesn't have much lock, is this normal or is it just mine, ive tried altering the end points but doesn't help much.

    Tamiya Junkies Meets in South Yorkshire

    Hi there, there's not many on-road clubs around us, but keep an eye on here from time to time.
  12. Hi all, been awhile since ive been on here, Formally Clumbermeets, then with the IconicRc lads. Ive been arranging track meets around south yorkshire since late last year, just relaxed meets, nothing serious just good fun, running modern (largest would be short course) and my favourite vintage buggies. We have a growing community on our Facebook group, Tamiya Junkies, so feel free to head over and join and maybe come along to a meet or two. Our normal haunt is a monthly meet at Robin Hood Raceway at Blyth, we've also had a meet at A1 racing and presently looking further away.

    Tamiya SRB Sand Scorcher Hop Ups?

    I have the diff upgrade, but to be fair i preferred it stock, its never going to be a race buggy, i also fitted the alloy chassis from radshape,Shock wise i fitted the RcChannel coil over units, they are alot better and mine have not leaked yet. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Buggy-Champ-Sand-Scorcher-shock-set-with-spring-and-metal-join-ball/152928164717?hash=item239b3a9b6d:g:pWQAAOSwgmJX0uq9

    Any guess on re-re 2019?

    I have an original blackfoot and re-re monster beetle so a re-re mud blaster would be nice, but i like quirky so Falcon and striker for me.
  15. Hi, never really gave the motor much thought, might swap motor with a 10.5t or 8.5t from one of my other cars. not really after silly speed, just less maintenance and a little more speed. Got plenty of metal geared servo's, really looking to the build, should be good fun at the track.
