  1. Had a brief run around the garden and then this happened as it was turning! Found the bits and put it back together but seems a bit of a weak to me! having said that, I find this car flips a lot in corners so it’s probably my driving (again).
  2. Just checking in with those of you that have a TXT1, are you fixing the axel link bars every time you run it too? they seem to un screw really easily and I’m loathe to use thread lock on the plastic eyes, does anyone do aluminum hop running stock except for an esc (hobbywing 880) and because of that I can use 4s. It was breaking before I used 4s just in case that’s adding to the ease it breaks! I fully realize after watching the below that I am an average driver at best!
  3. Only running 2s so within voltage range. I’m going to agree on the cutoff being the issue, maybe just use an alarm?
  4. Hello all! if an esc states it is not lipo compatible, does that mean it has no low voltage cut off/alarm function so you may ruin the battery, or does it mean the esc will be damaged if a lipo is used. asking as I’ve used a lipo with an incompatible esc and the world did not end! (Also did not use for long enough to drop below min batt voltage). thanks!
  5. Got as far as I could with my DT03 Falcon tribute. Shame the colour was off on the majority of the eBay special stickers.
  6. You may find the Corally battery is a bit too long. I have one and while it fits hotshot/fox style buggies, it won’t fit in wild one/grasshopper 2 types battery fitments. It’s literally 1 or 2 mm too long!
  7. Specifically the counter gear that the pinion connects to but if anyone has a full set that would be awesome too. thanks!
  8. This happens on mine too. the problem is the small cog on the counter gear that the pinion drives the large side of, slipping against the diff gear. I’ve had about 8 runs on a 15t motor and need a new counter gear as the teeth are semi stripped, none seem to be about! was wondering if the Blitzer beetle one is the same size? I think it’s loose manufacturing tolerances in the gearbox mount for that gear, just allowing it to move slightly so the teeth slip, that or a sub standard batch of gears themselves.
  9. Ok, cheers. Looks like it’s extras for my txt1 then.
  10. I was asking for that wasn’t I? 😂
  11. Does anyone know what these are from? I was re organizing my stuff and the bag still had price on of 2.99 from 30 odd years ago.
  12. Well, I finally got round to completing the kit and now on to build the ducktail! Thought I’d royally cocked up with the colour, but once the decals went on it looks loads better! Pearl white, backed black, with metallic graphite on the roof inserts. not going to go with a full louvered back like in the post above, just one off the rear bar, so hopefully will look ‘right’.
  13. I’m going to give this a go with my TL01 when the weather clears up. It’s running a 10bl120 with an etronix 6.5t sensored motor. 23t pinion on standard gear set, with a lightened drive shaft. No clue how fast it would be but anything around 50mph should be fun!
  14. thinking something like this, but still at paper modeling stage tho
  15. I’ve got as far as electrics, looking forward to seeing how well the old school motor performs…
