  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30UBBo9CM_U More video footage.
  2. As someone who is quite into electronic music, this sound track would be more appropriate for a video released in 2013, not 2023. Its an interesting choice.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcsREP2VjTo After watching this official video I've spotted a few more things, the ESC is behind the driver's head in that black shroud. The droop on the buggy also looks quite limited but that could be the setup used.
  4. If this was £250 with a slipper clutch included I would pre-order. But as it stands I'll wait and see if it has any of the durability issues the TD4/2 have had.
  5. Hi All, I've just picked up a buggy under the A07 valiant name and was wondering if anyone had a scanned manual or exploded view. My example has done many, many miles but the only parts that need replacing are the bearings and some bent links so it looks repairable. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=67965 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=34126&sid=37 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4zFpQeRCpo
  6. I'm still crossing my fingers this makes it way to the UK. Azarashi have just released a shell for it so it must have sold reasonably well in Japan. https://www.redrc.net/2023/01/azarashi-elizas-body-for-genova-buggy/
  7. Most touring car brands make them, here's a pack from Schumacher for example. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/schumacher-body-post-mouldings-4--407014
  8. Not really an answer to your question but this spring kit is super cheap and I've found it to be in the useful range for most 1/10th touring cars, you can find the same one all over ebay and aliexpress etc. Might be easier to buy something like this and do some testing https://www.rcmart.com/xtra-speed-spring-set-for-1-10-rc-car-xs-59591-00059995
  9. Hi All, Following the Fiat Abarth announcement/leak I was doing some searching and came across this image on a spam/scam/aggregrate website. I'm not going to include a link but it didn't have any details. Does anyone know what chassis is in this picture?
  10. Higher voltage with lower current is more efficient but the trade off is weight and packaging.
  11. As @Wooders28 says, those speed passion motors are old stock being sold off. Compared to a modern (2022) motor in the same turn from HW or LRP they're a bit slow but they're also a quarter of the price.
  12. For 2S power on the cheap its hard to beat these speed passion motors and a 10bl120. The 10bl120 can also add some timing if you want it. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/speed-passion-1-10-competition-mmm-series-45r-bl-motor-407412 https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/speed-passion-v3.0-competition-bl-5.5t-36282 https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/hobbywing-quicrun-10bl120-sensored-425021
  13. Pretty simple but does this guy have a name or back story?
  14. I've had Mtroniks ESCs cut out before because they can't supply enough power to the servo. I'd try a HW1060 if you have one spare.
  15. With a decent slipper setup you can set it loose enough that it will slip at the same time as the tyres. Usually when you pull out of a corner or from a standing start, its not eliminating tyre slip but reducing the slip ratio down. It will get warm but not melt, race kits sometimes use multi-plate slippers to help handle more heat.
