  1. Thanks for that. It does look a lot like the GT Power inits but driven from the MFU so fingers crossed.
  2. Coming on well. I’ve a MFU-1 that I was also struggling to get more out of. I’ve decided to stick with the Tamiya unit but ordered a OB1 kit from Fury Bear. Hopefully it’ll do what I want it to do. https://furybear.eu/product/ob1-v3-1mfc-v3-1s-led-system-for-tamiya-rc-1-14/
  3. Thanks for the reply. Yup, it's a nice place to be some days but when you're on a site, chaining down heavy muddy plant onto the trailer then it's not so much fun! I did look at the Spektrum radio but I think the Radiolink will be sufficient for what I want it to do. I found this using the cheaper Turnigy radio gear: I think I'm going to keep the MFU for the "standard" truck lighting then drive all the extras from spare channels on the radio gear (via switch supplies). Paint stripping trial time on some of the panels I'm replacing as a trial hopefully today. Also trying to stay away from eBay and Astec Models for more bits......
  4. Hi, I've just got a R620 fully built unit and Carson Goldhofer trailer from a friend who had lost interest. As a kid I built several cars starting with a Hornet, into nitro then onto 5th Marder's so know a little bit. Unit is running a Carson Reflex 6 channel radio set, MFU-01 and the Carson trailer lighting kit. There's also a light bar on it running off one of the spare rx channels. My plan for the unit is to try and replicate as much as I can the truck I drive for work: I've started with stripping it down to fit a ballrace kit and going to try and get rid of some of the ugly Tamiya plastics on the chassis as well as the roof spoiler. As you can see, my boss is scared of the dark with lots of lights added! I have had a play with plugging some more LED's into the spare MFU channels with some success but it does appear limited what can be driven especially for the high beam/flash. My thinking so far is swapping to a different radio set with more channels to then drive functions from dedicated switches. It's not going to get a load of use once built so was looking at something like this: https://wheelspinmodels.co.uk/i/307340/ Any thoughts or advice?
