  1. Thanks for the assistance guys. I appreciate the help. I dug into my spare bits box and found a set of oil filled shocks, Which were on another model previously and were just the right size. One was broken but luckily had some spare parts to repair. Problem solved!
  2. Thanks Smidsy, can you remember which ones you bought? We’re they the dt-03 ones taffer suggested? Thanks
  3. Thanks Taffer, much appreciated
  4. Have started building my re re holiday buggy. What a pain building those friction shocks! good job a had a vice in the shed to grip the bottom part. Has anybody upgraded the shocks on a HB as I am keen to replace them with oil filled shocks. Would be grateful for any suggestions / links
  5. Welcome Yoda67, looking forward to seeing photos of the builds
  6. Welcome dablk, better late than never
  7. Thanks Guys. I thought it was too good to be true - I'll pass on this occasion Crashbox Dummy
  8. Hi Guys. I have seen the above online for sale and it is referred to as a Carson (Tamiya Germany) 404172 Land Rover Defender crawler. While I Have heard of Carson before I am unsure whether this is an actual Tamiya chassis built under licence or whether it is a copy / variation etc or even something altogether different? Does anybody have experience of these, are they any good? is it effectively a ready to run built Tamiya kit which can use Tamiya parts and hop ups etc for repairs? The link at Time Tunnel Models is https://www.timetunnelmodels.com/live/catalog/carson-tamiya-germany-404172-land-rover-defender-crawler-silver-ready-large-p-66417.html Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated Crashbox Dummy
  9. Not radio control unfortunately (how cool would that be!) but have just finished the Falcon 😁
  10. Thanks waterbok. Thats interesting about the mah. I suppose over the years batteries have become more efficient and maybe better than they would have been even 5-10 years ago. I’ll have a look for the vapextech
  11. Hi everyone. Having come back into the hobby after a several years long break, I’ve realised my old ni-cd and nimh are no longer any good and it’s years since I bought any. I’m needing to buy some nimh batteries with large capacity (possibly 5,000 mah?) for decent running times. As it’s been years since I bought one does anybody recommend a particular brand please? Many thanks 😊
  12. After doing some gardening and having a bit of a nap in the sun, I finally pulled my finger out and updated my showroom today, something I've been meaning to do for months. I unfortunately downsized and sold several models a few years back but it's good to finally have my current models in the showroom. Tried to charge up my really old batteries as well with little success so I need to go shopping for some new ones. I also need to start building as I've got a few NIB. Crashboxdummy
  13. Welcome to the club HondaHan. I’ve also looked you up on YouTube - you’ve got a new subscriber! 😁
  14. Having just come back into the hobby after a really long break I want to build a dedicated hobby area. We have an extension in the house and my son uses the main room in the extension as a gaming room. I would like to set up a corner or something so I have a space to build and also display the cars. Am looking at items from ikea such as billy bookcases and / or perhaps some units with a kitchen style top. I also have some kits to build - CC01 VW Toureag and a holiday buggy (I also have a Kyosho Optima and Sand Scorcher to build but will probably focus on the Toureag and holiday buggy first). I probably also need to have a good look through all of my existing stuff - I’ve got several batteries, which haven’t been used for years so I am guessing they will need to be disposed of? And if I have anything that I won’t need they can go on eBay to fund some additional purchases. Hopefully 2020 will be a much busier year for me where RC is concerned.
