  1. Thanks people's! I've ordered some alloy ones! Great stuff thank you
  2. Worksop rc club this Sunday. Look on Facebook at the track. I will let you know how it goes !
  3. Look on worksop rc club at the track for sunday..........
  4. I'm trying to find some hub assemblies to restore an ongoing project. The super astute has different rear hubs.
  5. I love buying old 90s tamiya rc cars, parts, spares, job lots...... then I look through my parts and build rc cars! My collection has grown massively. I even race them too. Life is for living (as my wife says) so rc cars are for having fun with and in my opinion racing!. I just hope everyone has fun which ever direction they take in this hobby.
  6. Well honeycombs fitted, new hobbywing xr10pro fitted 9.5t motor installed......... savox Steering servo in and round stick lipos fitted! 300 Damper oil in the front and 400 in the rear. Set for the vintage racing at the weekend!
  7. Does anyone have any set up advice on racing this platform? Or does anyone have any racing experience with the vintage 2wd buggies?....... original astute, madcap etc Hope you guys can help.......
  8. The picture shows a 0.2mm shim on the outside of the bearing. There are also shims on the inside. You can buy 10 0.2mma shims on Ebay. I normally use 0.2mm and 0.5mm. The idea is to remove any slack which saps power and causes wheel wobble, hope the info helps @matisse @Tamiyold
  9. I will put some pictures of the shims tomorrow.
  10. Like any form of racing, you crash or drive badly you are going to get damage. I also race a cat L1 and yes it's a new modern car but it still gets damaged. A badly set up car will be harder to drive and inevitably be likely to crash and get damaged!.
  11. You don't need lots of money, just practice. Set up is key. I race on polished wooden sports hall floor where there is no much grip so stiffer is the key, then when I race at the Schumacher masters in worksop it a rubber compound floor that requires a softer set up. Touring car set up transferred to the buggy is a good start, you just need to increase the ride hight to around 18mm with a good quality 350 shock oil. As for anti roll bars I'm in the process of fitting some bars from a cat l1 onto my tfe.
  12. Where the drive shaft goes through to the bearings and on the outside where you fit the drive hex. Also on the prop shaft around the bearings to stop any slop which loses power.
