  1. You are where I was 6 months ago. i agree with frog jumper, in fact he gave me loads of great tips when I modified mine. i bought the cva shocks, metal bearings, ball diff (horribly expensive) and modern esc/servo etc. it got my little ones interested and was a great test mule but after buying my youngest a dt03 neo fighter for Christmas it’s just better in every way and more fun. im now selling all three of my vintage cars to someone who will restore and appreciate them whilst I will use the money to buy a tt02b and have fun bashing with my daughter. enjoy and have fun.
  2. Let me know what you want for it, in the market for a tt02b!
  3. Based in surrey, England. Happy to post Anywhere if the price is right. can stick some pics up but won’t be for a few days as I’m away for new year with my family.
  4. Hey guys, I have decided to sell my three vintage cars I dug out of the loft. rough rider - in bits but 99% complete including original shell in excellent condition. hornet - complete And fully working with hump battery and acoms stick controller. Shell needs replacing but that aside it’s in good condition. monster Beetle - fully working with bearings, cva shocks and mip ball bearing diff upgades. Shell needs replacing but it’s complete including driver etc. Whole truck is in great condition. would rather sell as a job lot but unsure how much I should be aiming for. is eBay the best place? Where do most guys pick up their vintage cars? to be honest I’m hoping for enough to purchase a Tt02b and a few cans of paint.
  5. that link seems to be broken - any idea how we can follow the guide? without pics its just impossible!
  6. Hey gents, just bought a neo scorcher and plasma edge 2 for me and my daughter to have some fun with. we want to do some tinkering and had a few questions. 1 - do you have to keep the front wheels smaller than the back? What effect does it have if all 4 either run wider or narrower? 2 - will any 12mm hex wheel fit? 3 - what are good tyres to get? Happy to have a few different sets but we would be running on sand, grass, tarmac and dirt. if you could provide links to any products that’s would be great. seen ones like these - would they work? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4PCS-Alloy-Beadlock-2-2-Wheel-Rim-For-1-10-RC-Axial-Wraith-TRX-4-SCX10-II-AX10/223462002974?pageci=eb8f9de5-ae2c-44a8-84f9-3c663de6820e https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Rear-2-2-Wheel-Rim-RC-205R-Off-Road-Buggy-12mm-Hub-D-62mm-W-36mm-Metal-1-10/192420399541?pageci=639afc39-fcb7-4489-8d34-47f3ab9c38f6 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Front-2-2-Wheel-Rim-RC-205F-Off-Road-Buggy-12mm-Hub-Metal-D-62mm-W-29mm-1-10/192420410506?pageci=48de4022-809c-4833-81ec-8987feeaa84c thanks for the help.
  7. OK the nice clean diff that gave me great running times has now been filled with black/silver as it tried to eat itself. Alas lots of clicking and not much go. Decided I'm too far in to give up so MIP ball bearing diff #16210 and frog shaft set #53908 both ordered. Hoping this is the last thing that needs replacing for a while.
  8. Any update on your build? This one has totally inspired my daughters who now want a ladybug and cat noir themed and a pink Neo scorcher to mess about with in the garden.
  9. @ALEXKYRIAK superb work. Just about to get a neo scorcher and just love this thread. to get that colour you sprayed orange then silver then black? keen to do similar in pink (building with my daughter) so should that be done with an iridescent tamiya paint? Love the wheels and custom ride height. May well be tapping you up for the dimensions! any update on running it?
  10. I thanked you above but terry had put up with many PMs from me hence the special note. apologies if you felt I had taken your advice for granted, I can assure you it wasn’t the case.
  11. Also had my old charger and then went cheap and bought a usb to tamiya lead which I put to my iPhone plug but it was woeful so it’s in the bin and this replaced it. can charge at 2/3.5/5a speeds so it’s perfect.
  12. A huge thank you to @Frog Jumper who has guided me quite a bit. started off having battery length issues which were solved by taking the diff/gearbox to bits, washing everything thoroughly and putting back together with lots of grease. Now it’s getting 40/50 mins with 4500 and 5000 mah batteries. Fitted the new bearings to the gearbox and wheels, added new cva shocks, a torque tuned motor and alloy hubs. few more bits in the post but it’s coming along nicely.
