    Motor choice again

    Good afternoon as you I am a complete newbie, my mate has given me a brushless motor not sure of the make but it's a 10t 3450kv max current is 63 amps and 250 Watts sensored, would this be a better motor than my tamiya tuned motor, I no its not a cheap one he paid 90.00 for it. Many many thanks again.

    Grasshopper suspention

    So whilst messing around with the front suspension I came up with an idea (ALOT of free time on my hands at the moment) to stiffen the front shocks up I inserted some springs from a biro pen inside the original springs on the front and the difference is unbelievable. Quick and simple. Bit of bodge job but as test really pleased.

    Grasshopper suspention

    Hi all I am a complete newbie, after many many years I have bought my first tamiya the grasshopper, so I am asking for a little advice, I have fitted it with a 540 motor and a Robinson 18 tooth gear as well as bearings does fitting oil filled shocks make a big difference to its handling I noticed on ebay you can also get an anti roll bar link and shock mounts any advice would be much appreciated many thanks Tim. Oh and any tips would be much appreciated too
