  1. Hi all, as per the title really. Just wondering what size wheels the cc01 lowering kit has? I'm considering it, but don't want to use the chrome wheels that come with it.... Thanks!
  2. Thanks Big Jon, good to hear. This is just one of the transmission cover screws.
  3. Yeah that's the final step, 3mm threaded rod and a couple of nuts should sort it out if the CA fails ๐Ÿ‘
  4. That also sounds like a solid option, thanks!
  5. Right, I've got some of this, it's quite thin but I'll give it a try, thanks ๐Ÿ‘
  6. Brilliant, yeah it does make sense, think that'll be my first step. Then the helicoil/Schumacher kit if that fails! Any suggestions on which CA glue is best?
  7. Sorry for being a bit slow, do you mean add CA glue, to the hole and let it set, then add oil to the screw and screw it in?
  8. Ah I've not heard of this. Is it just a case of using the cotton bud to swab the inside of the hole with CA glue?
  9. Morning everyone, I managed, somehow, to strip the thread from the plastic on my CC01 chassis last night. Weirdly, it only seemed to strip when I was undoing the screw, but anyway..... Thinking that a small amount of CA glue in to the hole should mean that the screw can bite again. Does that sound about right? Epoxy resin is surely too hard? Other options seem to be new chassis, helicoil kit or drill through and use threaded rod and nuts. What's the group opinion!? Thanks ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Hi all, Just building my Blitzer Beetle, and I'm just on the servo bit now. Everything seems to fit fine, but there's a gap between the servo body and the horn. My CC01 seems to be the same, but does this look ok? No play in it, and I didn't have to force anything......
  11. Thanks RB, I have considered it actually, there's some really fine examples of paint schemes using masking fluid. Might have to give it a go ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Brilliant, thank you Jenny, I really appreciate that. Really useful information! I'll get some practice on spare plastic too, don't want to be too heavy handed with the sanding!
  13. Hi all, As the title suggests, I'm looking for some advice on how to get that exposed metal / primer effect on my Blitzer Beetle. A bit like the pic below (stolen from IG)....I can only find full on weathering tutorials online, just want this look. Thanks!
  14. Did they work ok after youโ€™d crimped up the female leads?
  15. The esc is an after market one, itโ€™s an mtroniks, but it came with the kit and fits the tamiya 540 motor perfectly.......canโ€™t get to take a pic right now, sorry!
