  1. Some footage from playing around yesterday with my boy and my drone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvBVUGviKTk
  2. Ok here it is! Took a little longer than expected due to the ridiculous heatwave and 121F Degree weather... with no AC!! lol Driven it around my house on the hardwood, runs well, will be giving it a run outside this afternoon! Enjoy....
  3. Thanks Taffer, hoping to get it finished up tomorrow!
  4. Sorry, I didn't see this question until now.... I installed it as per the instructions. I put the ESC on the side of the servo with the included double sided tape. Had to redo it of course as the first servo I purchased wasn't fast enough, more for crawling instead of running. So swapped it out and put some new tape in there. I have it mounted exactly how it states in the manual. Where you not able to get it in there? Mine was a tight fit I have to admit. I think the tolerance of some servo's may make them too big. That said. I don't think its that critical having the ESC there, just stick it somewhere out of the way like the receiver etc.. I am happy to get you some pictures though.
  5. Yeah going to see how it goes. I had the Fast Eddy bearing set ordered up and delivered already so that's all been fitted! The shocks seem pretty well balanced and with a moderate level of resistance so I'm going to see how they go. Forgot to fit my stainless suspension shafts though! Doh! So I will go back and do that tomorrow. It hit a record 105F degrees here today (40.5C) so its been a tad warm! lol I also picked up a DJI Mini 2 drone and I plan on getting some cool footage of my cars in the coming week or so! Weather permitting of course ;o)
  6. Totally forgot to do this! So my apologies.
  7. Ok fast Eddie bearings arrived today so that's all the pieces of the puzzle! Build starts tomorrow! I've never posted a build in the build section but may start one.
  8. Well I'm going to give it a try! lol Have a Sport Tuned in all my new models, just put one in the Blitzer to see the difference over the standard silver can and it is quite significant all around! Could be an older worn silver can, but it is definitely worth it. They have been on sale here in the US on Amazon for around $19 shipped so well worth it imo. I have a few spare pinion's so will see what options there are.
  9. I have one on my desk ready to go in it! RS540 Sports Tuned
  10. Good work! Speedy too! I thought the chassis was a little frustrating at times! Definitely not my favorite, but interesting never the less.... Here's a video of the Blitzer Bash I took this morning... Basher Blitz - YouTube
  11. Let me know how you like it, looks awesome so I'd be tempted!
  12. Thanks, it was my first bash at doing an RC video. Definitely learned a few things lol I managed to get its sister project finished up today! Lexan TBG Shell for my Blitzer Beetle so I can bash it around and make some proper videos with action!
  13. My Thunder Dragon was from RCPlanet, which I believe is just a rebranded Amain Hobbies as thats where the shipment came from and the receipt. I got my Monster Beetle from Tower Hobbies and used some good discount coupons too, and thats where I have my Evo on pre-order. My local Hobby Store is great for paint and things, but it doesn't stock a single Tamiya model.
  14. Good luck homes! Hopefully it comes through. Just waiting on all my parts to come in before I start the build!
  15. @DaveBuildsRC found them on Amazon.... just ordered... $10 ;o) Thanks for the heads up!
  16. Thanks for the info! Any suggestions that isn't ebay? lol
  17. lol i think its next on the list...... Well the extra receiver, RS540 Sport Tuned motor and fast steering servo came today for the TD. Just waiting on my Fast Eddie Bearings to come in and I think I will get started! Is there an MIP diff for this? Any other worthwhile hopup internals while building to look at?
  18. I'll swap you mine for an Avante? ;o) Always wanted one of those!
  19. I made a little video of it this morning, this is my first time making an RC video and it was interesting controlling the car and filming at the same time! lol
  20. Had some time to work on the M03!
  21. lol I may have to, I really thought I could just be like "ahh its a runner, i don't care if it gets scratched up... this is a basher' I may order another solid plastic one, but they appear to be out of stock! I do have a lexan Blitzer Beetle shell... hmmmm
