  1. In order of which they will most likely be completed: Traxxas XO-1: needs tires, electronics, and a body which has been very hard to source. Another crawler: Looking for something in-between my CC-01 and Bomber, Thinking Element Enduro or CC-02 Basher: Most likely to be a Traxxas Maxx, but Arrma is said to be making a new 4s line, so I will wait on that. 1/10 touring car: Since my TT-02 will be either a speedrunner or a rally car in the near future, I think I will want something a bit smaller than the XO-1 for general on-road usage. I'm liking the Kyosho Fazer Mk.2
  2. Thanks for the info, it looks like it has hardly been used since the brushes and commutator look to be in great shape. Did some searching on ebay and only found listings for the endurance tuned version which has a blue endbell. I'm probably going to sell it if it works well since the GH has very limited gearing options and all of my on-road cars have decent motors in them already. If it doesn't I'll put it on display on my desk since I think it looks great for whatever reason
  3. Got one of these with a two grasshoppers that I bought recently. Did a little googling, but I couldn't find much information about it. It has a red endbell and I think it has a bearing on the output side of the motor. Could someone give me a comparable modern motor in terms of speed and would it be suitable to use in a grasshopper?
  4. Two crappy grasshoppers. Probably going to sell one as they are both in pretty OK shape and keep one for myself.
  5. Traxxas now sells the Slash as a kit: https://traxxas.com/products/models/electric/slash-assembly-kit @njmlondon mentioned the Baja Rey and I can highly recommend that one. My brother has one and it drives like a dream. Miles of suspension travel, plenty of power, and great looks as well. I really like the Axial Bomber, but it is no longer available as a kit, and the RTR model I feel is a poor value. The only other similar models I can think of off the top of my head that are available as a kit are the Tekno SCT410.3 and the TLR SCTE-3.0
  6. Stock tires believe it or not. The Bigwig just suits my driving style and I was able to get the most out of it.
  7. I'll take my best of the rest trophy. Congratulations to @TurnipJF for the second consecutive W and for organizing this.
  8. This is the exact reason why I did my runs last weekend even though F1 is a Sunday morning ritual for me.
  9. Most Traxxas cars have M4 turnbuckles. I have a bunch of them laying around and I'd be willing to measure them for you. Are you looking for 75mm eye-to-eye?
  10. I think a lot of it is going to depend on where you can drive an ICE car. Some cities in Europe have banned older diesel powered cars from city centers, so I can certainly see that happening to all ICE cars in the next 10-15 years. I have thought about this a lot, since I will probably be purchasing my 2nd car in the next year or so. I totally could make an EV work for me, since when I'm at home or uni I rarely drive more than 30 miles round trip, but home to Uni is 50 miles one way and involves driving on the highway and over hills, both of which absolutely kill the range of a cheap EV like a Nissan Leaf or a BMW i3, since I can't afford a Tesla or a Porsche Taycan. Back to the original question, I believe that normal cars like Civics, Focuses, ETC will be worth scrap value in the near future, while some classic cars will still be worth something. (This also depends on your definition of a classic car). We will know a bit more about the future of the classic car market I believe when the JDM and classic 4x4 bubbles burst, since both are super hot right now.
  11. Still looking. I'm not picky on condition.
  12. Any 6-cell NIMH battery such as this one is perfect for a frog. The frog will also be a fun contrast to the Notorious
  13. I'd say all Tamiya models for people in my age group (Born in the 2nd millennium). I'm pretty much the only person under 30-ish years old that runs tamiya that I know of. I'd say the Rookie Rabbit or some oddball on-road body for least popular (Honda S-MX, Suzuki Wagon R RR, Mazda 3, SN95 Mustang)
  14. That's easily the craziest T3-01 I've ever seen. I'm looking at getting that same brushless system for my Mini-T 2.0, can't imagine it on a tricycle. I see that you are a man of culture as well
  15. Quick clarification: are we doing a rolling or standing start?
