  1. tamiyatef 42 with the M05 pickup ! I think I need to try harder lol
  2. managed to get out in the sun today , found it very tricky and not helped by my new 3d printed control sticks being too slippery , it's not great when you can't feel your hands and it's slipped off and you find out when it doesn't turn a lot of aborted runs but have a result for both m05&6 but honestly not great was great to be out in the sun and had a great time, and didn't hit anything after fixing the alpine paint work
  3. you haven't seen me drive , I'm more sunday driver than boy racer! I take your point it's just the m05 doesn't get hot the same and both have alu motor plates
  4. went yesterday for a first attempt and forgot a tape and it's raining today had a good test with my new M06at least. On 2s stock motor , I noticed it got a bit warm/hot after a full speed run about, is that normal ? do the black gears take longer to run in? Stock motors don't normally get hot on me so just wondering
  5. finally finished it and disaster struck. took it to my normal court for a gentle test run and going fine then some internal wiring controller fault put it on full forward straight into the metal fencing and some paint has come away going to have to strip the bits and hope for the best ,gutted
  6. looks like I won't get a run in, either places locked for the summer or full of kids. M06 coming along though ,just gotta the right paint for the light buckets and air intakes bit of a nightmare lol
  7. can of PS7, 2 good coats white ,1 coat black , lightly smoked windows
  8. here's where I'm up to so far ,decal work is far from perfect but it's a runner . Rear air intakes just pushed in, painted with my mix but it's not quite right, they need gloss as well
  9. PS-62 TS-98 pure orange and x-6 will probably match them
  10. backed with white and primed with various attempt
  11. hi, thanks again , X6 i have and thought it would work but it's much brighter orange and less red than ps7.. Ii did a mix with a touch of red that was close but not good enough in different lighting
  12. I can't rattle can the light bucket parts and I ran out of PS-7 trying things as I gave the car plenty lol
  13. hi would you please be so kind as to run TS-12 on your app?
  14. Hi thanks for the replies ,it would appear I need a TS--12 equivalent then as I can't use a can on the front light parts.
  15. Hi, I used PS7 backed with white on my Alpine A110 as I didn't like the pure orange , looks great but now I have a problem as to my horror tamiya don't do an acrylic equivalent and there're a few bits i need to match, anybody have a suggestion in another brand ? looked at the net and humbrol 209 looks interesting but can't really tell .
  16. hoping to get some laps in,m06 bodywork is taking an age lol kit front tyres ok for casual driving or are they terrible ?
  17. Hi, I'm going to ask this here first here before trying anywhere else , so finally got around to building my m06 alpine jager and I put 3racing shocks on and then I noticed on the pro instructions I looked up you insert a spacer inside the shock to shorten the front cva shocks. Now the 3racing did come with a little aluminium spacer but no real great instructions. Rear shocks are mounted at the standard point not on the pro hopup shaft. I can adjust the height at the front with the shock spring adjuster, do I need to fit the spacer? any ideas ?
  18. finally got on my car park for 10 minute practice and two back to back runs, struggled for grip and found it tough so definitely feeling i'll be holding up the rest of the table lol
  19. well not as bad as I was expecting ,congrats to you all at the top
  20. argh had a few distractions this weekend , just sent mine in, no worries if it's too late
  21. Bit of a crossed wire although I did mean be nice if it were bigger but the physical limitation I was personally referring to is my own being a C4 tetraplegic since 1988 I'm paralyzed from the neck down basically but I have an adapted controller, rest my hands on the sticks and use my shoulders to move them basically which can be a challenge!!!
  22. I have the standard 20t pinion and standard gears but did put my shimizu tyres/wheels on rather than the 60d's
  23. Good grief!! I tried this today, normally have my M-05 steering at 70-75 d/r, last track about 80+ but this one was basically full! The limit of my physical and metal ability this one for sure, head was spinning by the end of practice and 3 runs. Imagine it would be a real nice experience at twice the size but I found it real hard work with my physical limitations so not expecting to be anywhere this time. Still it's the challenge ......lol
