  6. Hello all, was working on the leafs. I did try to use bruiser leafs, but they make truck too high, it does not look right. My old original leafs was broken, god knows how many miles they got. So today got used original leafs. They are not bad shape. IMG_6772 by vito toto, on Flickr
  7. Hello, it is SRB shocks, they work nicely, but not hight end, it is 40 + years old!. I think i will leave this car shelf standing, as it is expensive and hard to find parts for repair!
  8. Hello, thank you for info about bearings!, today was playing with my shocks, used 500 medium oil, added rubber guards,i am not sure if they stay they place, they can rotate easy on the shock.

  9. Hello, i changed leafs to Bruiser ones, they are much softer, but front still a bit to hard. Also added shocks from super racing buggy. Got ball bearings for my axles, and they make miracle, wheels are spinning now nicely. Installed front bumper holder from steel, painted black, they are not likely to brake easy! Now i am in search ball bearing which goes to the wheel hubs, they are big ones. Still cant find where to buy. Any help would be great.

  10. So today was the day i got paints for the car. Was painting the grill, tamiya acrylic paints nice quality.
  11. Thank you for info Kev, your truck looks really cool, do you have more photos? Today was working on the wires and servos, a lot of adjusting, made it run with gears , i am pleased with this 3 gear system, i bet it will run good on the grass. Wanted to ask, i am using original speed control, which gives very fast start of the motor and great speed, i am afraid to hit something, there are a way to make more responsive?

    thank you in advance,

  13. Hello Kew the rew, yours looking truly amazingly good! I really like aluminium bumper, looks like real car. Did you make it yours self, or did you buy it?
  14. Hi all, was trying to fix my old broken bumper, painted it grey. I still think to find a metal one to replace original, which is so easy to brake!. Today was trying front lights, used small warm white leds. Got screws for wheels, which was missing.
