    Converting LWB M38 to SWB

    There was a topic about this on here a while back , but here is Lars' spot the difference on the 2 , it might give you the answer https://tamiyabase.com/articles/46-technical/173-want-to-compare-your-willy-part2-chassis-versions

    Look after the chassis tub as it is unique to the 58044 Pajero , it is similar to a LB / MP chassis tub but it has the special front body clip on it and this is not on the re-re LB / MP chassis

    Give the tyres a good scrub with a nail brush and soap , dry them off and give them a good coating of glycerin and put them in plastic bag for a couple of days to let it soak in , then wipe off and buff up . I've also used 1:1 car tyre dressing and a buff up in the past . ** I've got a new A8 MSC mount you can have , just PM me your address and I'll post it to you

    RX help please!

    TBH for garden running and for a bit of fun your old radio gear would probably do if it works ok , and just swap out the old ESC for 1060 . The new 2.4 will be good for more range and less interference
  5. The quick check is the thickness of the front arms , MK1 are thinner and lighter than MK2. The rear of the gearbox has tabs rather than the filled in casting where the rear cage lower mountings bolt on , and the front shock towers have small 2mm screws to hold the damping spring on the MK1 , the MK2 has cast lugs . There are other differences but those are the easy to spot ones to start with

    Steering Issue 2016 Blackfoot

    Check the servo plug is fully sitting in the receiver and that there are no cut wires or loose connectors in the plug . If that is all good then have you got a spare servo ?, if you have unplug the steering servo , plug in the spare servo and test . Do you have any other cars you can test the Handset with ?

    How due I make a set of these

    Have a look at this awesome bug , it has the modified front tyres called 315's , made from the rear 915's by cutting a slice out of the centre of the tyres and regluing it back together . If you talk nicely to mod Twinset , I'm sure he will help you out with your password situation https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=113058&id=32228

    You need something like these to use as is or spray them black if you want them black .The front tyres would be thinner than the ones in the pic , but you can cut down the width of the rear 915 tyres to suit the front wheels https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/tamiya-fast-attack-buggy-champ-rough-rider-SRB-B-type-alloy-1-7-rims-cover-new-/332339169637 You could try and get hold of vintage wheel covers from Proline etc but these are rare
  9. yep , that's what seems to be missing
  10. Look like a new P parts tree is needed :)
  11. Have you still got the small plastic washer in place that fits into the servo saver that the screw passes through and binds on to lock it on to the servo ? .Is the screw the right length and not bottoming out so leaving 'slack' ?

    Great little trucks these . I've had a couple of them . This one I built with a virtually destroyed vintage shell that I saved from the bin , then I modded the chassis to the Montero style Standard chassis:- https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=88270&id=5280 Montero style chassis:- https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=125666&id=5280
