  1. Yeah, I’ve ordered a new esc for my wild one, which has an unlimited turn esc in it. That only takes 2s so hopefully the faster motor will improve the truck. If not I could always put the manual speed control back!
  2. Probably right, I did have it on 4s with dual silver cans for a bit which probably didn’t help!
  3. Motor works again, esc not so much! New esc can’t take 3s, so back to slow truck for now..
  4. Ok, ta. I think I’ve lunched the esc too…..expensive day!
  5. Hi, as above really, swapped a 12t 90’s brushed motor into my txt1, hooked up to a Hobbywing 880 dual esc. Added lipo and it worked for 30 seconds before the motor seized. I’ve pulled the motor apart and the only thing wrong I can see is the grey substance on the side of the armature. It’s hard but should I scrape it off? Putting the armature back in it does turn, but that’s without everything else. Bearings are both good as are the brushes (pics below). cheers!
  6. I still have my clear txt 1 shell and want to paint it up. I’m going to use rally stickers but need the front grill and headlights for an f150. does any one have any they could let go? thanks!
  7. Fair enough, mine broke and it sounded similar.

  9. If you get no joy on the specific part, all 3 bits of the chassis are approx £15 posted from the likes of model sport etc.
  10. I got round to carrying on with this. I think I started it about 10 years ago, about time I got round to finishing! the driver (Jochen Mass rather than Jacky Icxx in the box art) looked much better to the naked eye, just shows that age brings shakes hands and dodgy vision!
  11. Mine was originally a Subaru too, worked well as a rally car.
  12. No issues with TL01 parts I’ve found. I have I 6.5t brushless in mine and seem to replace bits every time I use/crash it!
  13. 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).
