  1. Just got my Tamico shipping confirmation!!! Whoop whoop! I almost cancelled my order a couple of times but my excitement at receiving that email tells me it's a good thing I didn't!!
  2. Thank you! You're right, been away a while but had a number of projects in the meantime. Been looking for something to scratch the build itch for a few months now and this looked just perfect!
  3. I should add, I bought from the Tamico link shared on this thread, and quickly because the €252 price was too good to miss. Especially as I've just had an email from Jadlam at £360! 😱
  4. Ordered! Couldn't resist. Very excited to get a new model, can't wait to build it.
  5. If it's the tble02s, I had the same issue with thermal cut out on my Mad Bull, also for seemingly no reason. I switched to a Hobbywing 1060 and it's been perfecto ever since, and runs much nicer on that ESC too 👍
  6. Really enjoyable read, thanks for sharing. Hope the op all went ok and you've got another project lined up already! Love the body colour, what is it please? Car looks great, upgraditis sure is a catching ailment! 😁
  7. Thanks - food for thought. Punch on acceleration is not something I want more of, so I think I'll stick with the 19t for now as that is working well. No motor temp issues at all.
  8. Interesting - I'm running 19t with no problems at all, but it is very quick. Would a 17t slow it down a bit? Have the same experience of the speed as quoted in my post above, although it's coping ok with the 3300kv motor and on a track I think it would be fine. We've been running on grass tracks in gardens where we don't really get the space to open them up fully. I'm not inclined to make any changes, but always keen to get feedback and learn!
  9. Stick wheel weights in the front of the chassis as low as poss before you put the halves together, needs about 45g. Wish I had done that before it was built!
  10. I'm running Blitzer Beetle wheels with Schumacher vee4 rear and cut stagger fronts on my Neo Fighter stadium truck conversion. It has a Hobbywing ezrun motor and ESC combo, 3300kv. It has a 19t steel pinion, running on a 5000mah 2s lipo. No issues with temp in any way, has run two battery packs back to back with no issue. Only trouble is it's too fast! Can only really use about half throttle, can't get near full throttle without a significant amount of space. It did have a 4000kv motor in before and again no issues with temps at all, but that was utterly ridiculous, so fast it was completely undriveable.
  11. Quick update - took the Stampede out for a run against a range of other cars yesterday, and it was phenomenal!! I changed the wheels and tyres to the black chrome wheels and the upgraded talon tyres and I am staggered by the difference it made. Running on wet grass, you'd think the stock tyres would be better, but they were miles apart. The new tyres came pre-glued with inserts and provided so much more grip. It really was insane how much better it went. Understeer was gone, replaced by controllable drifts and sharper turn in, with better grip on acceleration too. I'm so happy with the set up now, the goolRC motor and ESC combo is the perfect power for the truck, especially with the 15t pinion, incredibly quick but not ridiculous and now with the new wheels and tyres fitted the whole thing drives like it always should have. Quickly becoming my favourite runner! 😁
  12. @Wooders28 second battery, not second hand 😉 I was tempted by a lihv battery as it was on sale on Modelsport, but it doesn't look like my charger supports that. Is there any difference in charging a lipo or a lihv? @matisse yep bought a Centro one! And yes, I'll rename the thread now, but it ought to be moved to the Kyosho section too 😊
  13. Ah ok, good tip. I was just lucky I had a suitable horn in the spares I happened to take with me. I'll run it like this for a while then upgrade to a metal horn once I have it all apart again. Have bought a second shorty battery now too, so max runtime is now available! Can't wait for the new tyres to arrive.
