  1. The annoying thing is I sent it flipping plenty of times, just as I was about to put it away I caught a curb at an awkward angle and snap! The curb stuck out so I think all the pressure on impact went to the upper part of the bumper where there’s no support I take your point though, if the plastic one has broken once then it’s likely to break again
  2. Soooo today I snapped the bumper off my lunchbox at a skatepark, I’ve seen aluminium bumpers with/without LED lights , is it worth it bearing in mind they’re more than double the price? has anybody got experience of replacing their lunchbox bumper and if so what did you replace it with? thanks in advance
  3. That's it, you only have to look at the accelerator and it wants to flip! I thought I saw somewhere it was 10T but thought it sounded too low, so you think 18T is the way to go?
  4. I've recently upgraded to a 13.5 T brushless motor which has definitely added some punch to the truck, the acceleration is brutal so I'm toying with idea of putting in a larger pinion to try and add more to the top speed but take a bit off the acceleration. Has anybody else done this or has any suggestions with this? Im not even sure what the pinion is that comes with the kit, but would like to hear some opinions from some people who have more knowledge in this than me! Thank you in advance
  5. I’m planning to buy a second truck in the not too distant future, sounds like I may as well buy a new ESC that supports a lipo. How would I be able to tell if an ESC has a voltage cutoff built in?
  6. With these voltage cut off alarms, does it matter what esc you have? I have a TBLE02S so will definitely be investing in one, for example would this be the kind of thing I'm looking for https://www.modelsport.co.uk/index.php?product_id=406668&gclid=Cj0KCQiA2vjuBRCqARIsAJL5a-KXdyDSeURbR-Es4c5rHBfRjmHYA0y7vB2nw7ww34kOlI9K8wE29VYaAiiSEALw_wcB
  7. Would you mind sending me a pm to see if I get the notification?
  8. Yeah the icon was there yesterday when I was messaging you, then it disappeared and hasn't been back since. Apologies for not responding but this is why!
  9. Has any body else lost the icon to show personal messages? I was messaging someone now I cannot find anywhere how to find my pm's to start or respond
  10. You're in Croxley green?! That's literally 5 mins away from where I live!!! Small world How much would the blitzer you've got set me back? If I'm honest I'm looking a few months down the line so I'm just researching as much as anything
  11. Monster beetle was always the one I really wanted as a kid, probably cos I was a massive herbie fan! So apart from the ball diff upgrade are there any other ' must haves' upgrades? The clod buster seems like it's a beast to look at but has limited room for upgrading..... Plus it's double the price 🙄
  12. So I have a lunchbox which I'm upgrading and having lots of fun with in the process, but I'm planning on buying a second truck. I'll list the contenders below, I would like some advice from anyone who has greater knowledge or owns one of them already, feel free to add any other recommendations into the mix....... Monster beetle, blackfoot (any variant), clod buster (any variant), king cab, hilux monster racer I'm not a buggy fan, I very much prefer monster trucks in terms of looks and I accept they'll never be racers but I'm not a racer anyway! I'm not a purist in anyway shape or form, it will be bashed about so I'm happy with re re's, and I'm sure this will influence the price. I don't want to spend a fortune on the kit and spare parts/hop ups so I want something that's fairly easy to get parts for It needs to be upgradable in terms of more power, my lunchbox currently has a 13.5 brushless motor in it with no issues from the gearbox so I'd like to run something similar in the next truck I buy Finally it needs to be lowish maintenance, my lunchbox is easy to maintain and I don't get huge amounts of spare time that often where I can do rebuilds or anything like that Thank you in advance
  13. So I have a lunchbox and I'm planning to fit another shell, ideally a vw beetle to have a monster beetle look. Has anybody fitted alternative shells to their lunchbox and if so how did you mount it? Do tamiya make any alternative body mounts for the grasshopper or hornet? (I believe they share the same chassis as a lunchbox) I did find this on ebay but its quite expensive especially if it doesn't end up working! https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/233143292696?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=233143292696&targetid=594026702630&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007016&poi=&campaignid=6619152149&mkgroupid=84510982488&rlsatarget=pla-594026702630&abcId=1140496&merchantid=138818108&gclid=CjwKCAiA_MPuBRB5EiwAHTTvMQSahx26ACJDlq9AE9CRWJTzeXrs5huPfjroxsBchDZhXdWi8uPVXhoC_vQQAvD_BwE
