  1. I think the ‘instant wheelie’ of the pumpkin may sway me toward the bull
  2. Thank you all for the advice - really pleased to have found such an active forum and not one where you have to wait days for a response! Going to use the local shop as they sell Absima radio's and probably go for the Mad Bull also. As for the charger, don't need anything fancy as long as it charges the battery in under 1 hr. Still hesitating over the Midnight Pumpkin though - It does look cool and can take a lunchbox top also :-)
  3. Ok probably should've been more specific! So I'm looking at this https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/acoms-electric-package-deal-2/ This is the charger I'm interest in - [https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/ansmann-acdc-delta-3-charger/] I've also seen this https://www.pegasusmodels.co.uk/product.asp?type=package&maingp=Chargers%20-%20Power%20Supplies&id=NiCd%20-%20NiMh&prodid=1010871#.XYpqcihKiUk - goes to 5A instead of 3A so presume it will charge faster? And then there's this https://www.timetunnelmodels.com/live/catalog/etronix-et0208-powerpal-peak-mains-hyper-delta-nimh-charger-p-57777.html It's for my son who's going to want to recharge this and get it back on the road pretty quick. I've been out of the RC game since the 80's - I'm not looking for people to do my homework for me but would appreciate any feedback. It would be a useful start if there were some formula I could use for working out how fast they would charge a NiMH battery (2000mAh) based upon their specifications. Sorry for so many questions but just trying to learn....is Absima any good as a 2 channel radio over Carson? https://www.pegasusmodels.co.uk/product.asp?type=package&maingp=Transmitters&id=2 Channel&prodid=1014810#.XYptOyhKiUk
  4. Going to buy a Mad Bull following recommendations on here but need some advice on the best fast charger. Also so many online outlets can any one recommend their experiences with one? Thank you good people
  5. Thank you everyone for the excellent advice. This would be my sons first Tamiya build. He’s watched a few YouTube videos of the hornet and the grasshopper and also the lunchbox. He likes them all but judging from your suggestions I think the Mad Bull may be the way to go. Would be good to know the differences between the lunchbox and the mad bull. Either way, excellent forum and glad to be part of such an active group 😀😀😀
  6. I started with a Sand Scorcher and moved onto a Quattro
  7. What did you start with?
  8. What’s a TTob2? Is that the chassis and if so what goes on it? Been out of the game for a while so having to relearn all of this 😳
  9. Liking the off road ability of this!
  10. So... back in the day I had a sand scorcher and Audi Quattro. But today my 12 year old son is interested in Tamiya RC. Thinking about the Hornet but would welcome any ideas. Did look at the Lancia Integrale which looks really cool but perhaps not as much an off roader as the Hornet which is what he really wants. Advice please for a new young builder and driver
