  1. Just had an email from Nathaneal... All his emails ended up in my spam folder 😳😳😳. So I appologised to him....😔😔😔 @ Admin: if possible please delete this topic: it was my fault Rick
  2. Hi Juhunio, Thank you for the swift reply! I will keep on trying then...... Regards, Rick
  3. Hi all, I am having trouble contacting Nathaneal from MCI decals. I haven't been able to contact him since 15 december 2021. I got no reply after 6 e-mails I have sent since then. I just want to check if I use the correct email adress: mci-racing@hotmail.com Normally he is very quick to reply, so I am a little worried. Regards, Rick
  4. On the xv01 ( or xv 02 as successor?) chassis:
  5. Great thread and already some beautiful cars! I would like to see on a 1/10 scale chassis ( without the battery holder sticking out underneath the chassis!!!)
  6. Oh , forgot to mention: replaced the soft shock oil with medium in front and hard in the back: much better!
  7. Luckely I had a jar of Tamiya PC 1 still lying around: thinned it a little with Tamiya lacquer thinner. Am I correct that the PC line is no longer available?
  8. used the old toothpick method for the tire lettering
  9. I cut out the shell: used the scorche/ snap method where I could, rest with scissors......after all these years it was quite a challenge !
  10. @Snappy1: do you have any photo's of your bigwig?
  11. Did you use scissors or the knive-scorche method?
  12. Good to hear about the Top Force universals! I only saw that they are hard to find (EU).About the ball diff: is that the MIP one where you have to drill out the gear casings or are there alternatives?
  13. @ Snappy: do the Top Force CVD's fit without any modification? Are they a big improvement over the the stock dogbones? @ Super Ally: I am a big fan of the yellow shocks, so I would like to keep them. I will try some medium ( green) Tamiya oil I have lying around.
  14. Despite the large spacers I think the shocks need some harder oil than the supplied yellow shock oil ( 400?)
  15. Chassis is done ! Fitted electonics: my old trusty Futaba Megatech 40 mhz. Found out that the Tamiya TBLE-02s' coolrimms were a bit too high to fit under the upperdeck. I wanted to keep the receiver in i'ts position so it didn't interfered withe the propshaft, so I fitted a small Moped V16 R Bravo. Servo is a Futaba S3305 with metal gears. The re re Hotshot propshaft and propellor joints fit perfectly!
  16. Thanks for the reply Kayak! So I guess I have an old Super Champ gearcase
  17. I totally agree. Even more with the ball diff.... but then again it's more ore less adapted to on road use, a kind of Street Racing Buggy But for beach running there is nothing like a stock SRB
  18. Finished front and rear end; what a fun build! front uprights ( with the ballconnector in the ballplate remind me of the SRB front end The blue uprights take me back to my TA01 build.
