  1. I love mine. $200 here in the US and includes the esc. A fun build.
  2. Built this for my granddaughter and while it's fun it certainly doesn't have a sturdy feel like my buggies.
  3. Very nice. I did a Subaru Brat for my granddaughter in her favorite colors.
  4. I have not experienced that (yet) but do have a question on how part C11 fits in the rear wheels. It feels a bit sloppy with too much play. Anyone have thoughts?
  5. I saw the three pictures and it's beautiful work. Could you provide some specifics on the tires. I just finished my Terra Scorcher (first new build in 30 years for my grandchildren) and I love the look of those tires. Many thanks 😊
  6. Point taken. I found it difficult to mask in the area and got some bleed. :-(
  7. Actually I had combined to questions. I wanted to know if anyone had used liquid masking tape rather than traditional paper type tapes.
  8. PS4 Blue on the Terra but the Manta was 30 years ago so I don't remember. However, I did not follow the box on the Manta that much I do remember. Also, since I am here, two questions. Does anyone have any experience with Liquid Masking Tape? On my Terra I did use a small amount of thread sealer on the wheels but after 20 minutes of some high speed running they get loose anyway.
  9. Going through the basement and came upon the Manta Ray that my boys gave me in 1991. Purchased a new battery and motor, swapped the slider for an ESC and off we went. The grandkids were as excited as I was so I decided to buy something new. Fast forward and we have a Terra Scorcher and a Bigwig. I forgot how much fun this is and glad that I found this club as well. I would love it if they re released the King Cab. We have one of those and it's worn but still runs.
  10. Ah, yes. Just an old guy letting his grandson assist.
  11. I eyeballs it with the diagram in the instructions and that worked well. However, what I neglected the first time was thread lock because the kit didn't include it. During some full throttle test runs the screw came out. No damage just some extra work.
  12. Finished today. Runs great with one minor malfunction. Didn't come with thread lock and the set screw came out of the motor gear. My first build in 30 years. Manta Ray from 1990 next to it.
  13. I purchased a Spektrum STX3 from Horizon Hobby $45 for the transmitter and one receiver. Additional SRX300 receivers are only $15.00 and since I can only run one at a time this was a good solution for me.
  14. I am looking for decals for the Terra Scorcher and found them on a UK eBay listing but with possible VAT plus no specified shipping it is prohibitive. Grandson put some of the decals on before we removed the protective film. :-(
