  1. I recently bought three of Yeah Racing four piece sets. So far they seem very good for $32 USD. Very smooth. Virtually no "sticktion" They're EXTREMELY tunable. Four different spring sets, six different piston discs. Three of which have "V" tapered holes so you can install the "V" up or down depending on what you're tuning for. Only thing is the springs on the 55mm set seem to short (they're for on road, my use is off road<ish> ;-). I ended up using the longer extra springs that came with the 60mm set for my Beetle Rally MF-01X. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CVDTVX8?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G1IXQ3M?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details
  2. My wife doesn't complain about paint odors so I'm pretty good on that front. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it works. Only thing I notice is the venting starts to diminish as the filter panel gets clogged with paint. Rather obvious but worth mentioning. For $3-4, just toss a new one in. I can pretty much paint an entire RC project with one filter. Oh, and one trick most folks don't realize is that you should turn on any sort of venting mechanism (workshop or the kitchen) about 20-30 minutes before you do your task. A vent system works best when it has the ability to control the air flow entirely within it's area. Think of it as creating it's own quasi low pressure system where it's in charge of where it get the air and where it chucks it. LOL
  3. Oh, and I also took advantage of the lighting for a small photo booth.
  4. I made one from a range hood, some wood, and free coroplast, $8 LED light and flexible vent. I did splurge on a through the wall vent cap as I wanted to leave this hooked up all the time for quick paint jobs. (has come in handy many times for hobby as well as household items) Only headache is I had to order special filters for it as the final dimensions were not something off the shelf at Lowes. No biggie, $10 for a three pack.
  5. Doing my first hard body (Sand Scorcher) paint job. I just applied the third coat of Tamiya fine surface primer. How long do I have to wait to wet sand it? I watched a few YT videos and they mentioned 5 days of drying for a top coat, but nothing about a primer coat that I saw. Thanks.....
  6. Me too. Just to the west of the Poconos!
  7. That looks close. This will be very helpful. Thank you!
  8. Thanks for the info! I guess I won't have to order bearing and can just wait for the manual in the box.
  9. Just ordered a 47477 from my local hobby shop today. Wanted to review the manual as well as verify if it comes with bearing or bushings. I've tried all different searches on the Tamiya US site and can't find the specific manual. I can find manuals for the chassis, but that wouldn't verify the bearing/bushing question that comes with this particular kit. Thanks....
