    Finally got a Nikko Dandy Dash but it's a big of a dog!

    Good work there . I've used a heat gun with a premade former / cramp made of wood to reform plastic like that , heat up in vice between the wood former and gradually clamp up as it heats up and leave to cool , I sometimes over compensate the cramp slightly to allow for flexing back as it cools .

    It should work as it is for cleaning teeth . I've used Jif (Cif) in the past , that works well too .
  3. That looks great , thanks for the pics and info
  4. Does anybody know which Tamiya tyres would fit onto Kyosho Tomahawk front wheels , I'm thinking DT02 type ?

    How do clamping hex's work?

    I used this sort of hex adapter to modify my Ultima truck to take Tamiya MR wheels

    You might be able to weld in some plastic card inside the wheel rim to reinforce the repair

    Looking good . As you say , get some positive inspiration my friend , all is not lost and I'm sure it can be turned around. The memory of the deal will pass and the finished model will be worth all the effort just to own one now.
  8. I like the sound of Scorpion wheels , Will the fronts fit straight on or do you need adapters ? post up some pics when you have them fitted on
  9. I've had this SRB mothballed for a few years , it is a vintage model with the famous Volksrod # 7 shell . I've taken out the manual speedo and fitted a 1060 ESC , a new hump battery and fitted Wild One wheels for a fresh look . The rear axles are modified Lunchbox axles and now will take many wheel types . I fitted rear coil over shocks , and just waiting for the front pair to arrive .
  10. Can anyone tell me if the new SRB damper body diameter is the same as the vintage one , thanks
  11. I have a new in pack vintage original speed controller kit with resistor etc £25 posted in UK gift payment or add 4 % fees Thanks

    SWB M38 Correct Radio Set.

    The 427 is a 4 channel . The early 2 channel sets were the AP227 with green AS1 type servos and the huge receiver

    Pumpkin or Lunchbox Wheels on a Blackfoot

    I bought 2 sets of these and the barrel nuts can be cut down easily , they fit through the 1150 front bearings fine :- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Extension-Hex-Hub-Adapter-For-Crawler-D90-AX10-CC01-SCX10-F350-Accessories-Hot/153208682389?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=453066947925&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

    I've done a bit of checking , and it appears that a set of LB / MP chrome wheels that I got hold of were modified by cutting off the front bearing boss and recessing the bearing further into the wheel hub and extending the inner boss to take the bearing , thus 'widening' the track of the wheel by changing the offset , never noticed this until now . That's why it clears on the BF . not a mod I would recommend . A possible remedy for your situation could be an inner spacer as you mentioned , maybe a plastic 1150 bearing and a shim , and using a cut down barrell nut to fix the wheel on , it should work ok .

    I'll get some pics of mine later for comparison. I have a completely stock vintage BF
