  1. Yeah, I'll get a video today. It used to never do that, but now all of a sudden it does. Also, @Champ85, how do you take apart a GoolRC?
  2. Took my DT-03 for a dust run at the park - bashed her till she broke. (it's my cheap goolrc so who cares? i needed an upgrade anyway lol.)
  3. Can you ship to the USA, or is it only UK-based buyers? Thanks!
  4. Wow. I guess everyone in this forum was right - this motor is absolute junk! Thanks for your reply, @TwistedxSlayer! I am looking forward to hearing everyone's opinion on this issue. Cheers, madman.max
  5. Hi guys! I've been having a major issue with my GoolRC motor. I've had it about 6 months, including the ESC. My best buddy got the same exact motor around the same time I did, and his motor is doing the same. I have a 3900kV GoolRC, with the orange can. I also have (I think) a GoolRC 60A ESC that came with the motor. I might be wrong about the ESC, so I'll double check the specs later. So basically I'm having an issue with my car not going full speed, and the motor is making some sort of clogging noise. On many of the other posts I've seen, everyone says GoolRC is crap that can't even beat the Super Stock motor, so my hopes aren't the highest. Please let me know if you have anything in mind! Oh, and also, I have a FlySky FS-GT5 transmitter and receiver setup. (I don't remember the exact model of the receiver.) Cheers! Maxim aka big boy with cool toy.
  6. Ah, now I understand. So GoolRC is absolute crap? So should I start thinking of getting a new motor and ESC? Thanks for the replies @nowinaminute and @bikerclubby! You guys made some stuff clear! Sorry if I haven't replied in a while, I was just busy with my DT-03 upgrade project (I got new shocks, shock towers, and added the steering hop-up, I can post pictures if you want. Also, I've noticed that the red shocks are 100x better then the stock shocks.) Cheers! Maxim
  7. Also, another strange thing I noticed, and it has to do with the DT-03 wing. So, I was browsing the spare part catalog and every other item was marked as "In Stock" and had a price besides the wing. It was labeled as "Discontinued." But if they "re-released" it, how is it still discontinued? I'm quite baffled in this moment. Anyone have any ideas? Cheers, Max
  8. Here's something strange. I was browsing the Tamiya catalog, looking for a new RC car, and I come across the DT-03, now marked as "Temporarily Out of Stock" instead of "Discontinued." Here's a side-by-side comparison of the screenshot I took a few days ago and the one I took right now. That's pretty darn strange. Anyone have any ideas? Cheers, Max
  9. I added some new shocks and springs on my DT-03 and modified the steering. So, what have you done today?
  10. Thank you for the replies everyone! I’m looking for some spare parts that could be delivered to the US. Anyone have a good wing for a DT-03? @xzenonuk, I hope that is the case because all parts/spares for the DT03 are marked as discontinued and are no longer available on the Tamiya USA website. @rwordenjr, yes, it’s very popular. I’m extremely surprised that Tamiya would mark one of their most popular cars as “Discontinued.” @Jonathon Gillham, I am also pretty baffled as well as the DT02 is so much older but still Tamiya isn’t marking it as discontinued. Thanks for the replies. I am looking forward to seeing other types of evidence regarding the discontinuation of the DT03. Cheers, Max
  11. @xzenonuk, maybe. It's just the Racing Fighter model doesn't show up at all in the Tamiya USA catalog. Also, any good DT-03 wings? I really hope I am just overreacting. Cheers! Max
  12. Well, the Neo Fighter is the last one to stand. RIP Racing Fighter. You served well.
  13. Hi guys! Thanks for the replies! It's not just the Black Edition, it's all of the editions. Even the RTR. Here is a screenshot: I'm really sad. Anything to bring my hopes up? Max
  14. So, I was riding my beauty on tarmac with some friends, and one of them thought it would be funny if he brake checked my car, using the wheelie bar as a stunt ramp. I went up the "ramp" and my car cascaded down, hit the nose, and fell on its back, severely cracking/breaking the wing. I tried going onto the Tamiya USA website to find spare parts, and when I filtered my search to "buggies," I couldn't find it. I Googled it, and found the DT-03 Black Edition. This is what it said: DISCONTINUED. I went through the part catalog and they no longer make wings for this buggy. I am so flabbergasted. Many of my friends have this car, and it is popular worldwide. It would seem strange for Tamiya to discontinue a popular, easy to build, entry level car. Is it ACTUALLY discontinued?! Absolutely Flabbergasted, Max
