I can't seem.to add pics so If any of it sounds get in touch.
  9. Hi Everyone, Just to add my tenpeneth, I think this is a Thunder Tiger 1/10th truck, although I can't remember its name, I have seen a remarkably similar truck in the r/c mags. 70 issues at £5.99 = £420.00, plus £49.99 for the radio gear, they are seriously coining it!! If I remember right the whole truck is available RTR with radio gear for around £270.00!!! I just pity all the people who don't know about r/c and get duped into this. I saw a guy come into my local r/c shop with the last one they bought out asking for new ESC's because the first time he took it out the ESC just melted, and he could not get replacements from the magazine co. Don't blame you for getting cheap tyres though. Wondered what you guys thought? simple026
  10. Plase help guys, I have an Acoms AP-227 mk2 receiver that broken[] and also another Acoms receiver that has servo harness's coming out of the case that is also broken. Does anybody know of anywhere or anyone that can fix these[?] Really need your help on this one guys. Thanks in advance. simple
  11. Thanks for the info guy, my electrical knowledge is very thin on the ground[?], if you know what I mean!! Anyway, cheers for the advice and I'll see you all at Kiddeminster.
  12. Hi everyone, Can someone tell me what the lowest turn motors I can use with a 15t limit speedo (Mtroniks RV15). Can I even run twin motors with this speedo?[?] I know I have to wire them in series, it's just I'm waiting for my super rooster to arrive and I wanted to run single packs in my TXT at Kiddeminster. Using an EVX at the moment so I have to run twin packs, takes forever to charge two packs!! Also, I need some info about Kiddeminster: does anyone have the site address, also can I turn up and pay at the gate? How many sets of xtals do I need (only got 1 set at the moment). Also will it be OK to run my TXT-1?[?] Hope you can help guys. I've only been with the club a few months so this will be my first meet, I'm looking forward to meeting you all.[] Look forward to your replies. simple
  13. Hi Everyone, I'm fairly new to collecting and Tamiyaclub so I hope you can help[?] I've just got a really nice original Brat, but it didn't have any radio gear with it, the speedo still has the 6 volt connection on it, does anybody A: Know where I can get a 6v battery and charger lead? Or what mods can be done to make it 7.2 volt? Also I have tried a 7.2 but it won't fit the Brat chassis (too narrow), can anything be done about this? B: The radio gear I'm fitting is Acoms AP227, it has servo connections that actually clip into the side of the receiver, the radio did not come with a battery box, is this radio BEC compatible? The battery connection on the servo has three pins in it, can anyone help with this as I have never seen this type of receiver before, can I use a standard 2-pin battery box and switch harness? Also does anyone know what type of Acoms switch harness I should use. Basically, if anyone has the correct parts they would like to sell please let me know. I would like to try and keep it as authentic as possible, but if a few concessions to modernity have to be made I'm ok with that. Any help you can give would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance guys. simple026
  14. Hi everyone, I have a TXT-1 with 19x1's in it and an EVX speedo, I have seen some brushless systems from the US that claim to blow away nitro trucks! These motors use packs wired in series (14 cells altogether)[:0]. Can anyone explain how to do this and the difference between series and parallel[?] Does anyone have any good modifying tips for a TXT? Also I am considering an e-maxx 2 speed, has anyone tried this? If so, would you recommend it. I'm quite a novice when it comes to r/c electronics so any advice would be appreciated. I have also thought about using a Novak Super Rooster and low turn motors, has anyone tried this setup. Any advice you lot can give me would be really appreciated, espcially how to get rid of torque twisting. Also if you fancy a quick chat about your truck/s feel free to get in touch. Does anybody know of any good bashing/crawling sites in the Midlands (UK). Look forward to hearing from you all!! Thanks. simple026
