  14. I own an original Mountaineer new in box, 2 new built original Mountaineers and a re release Mountaineer, new in box. I'm a big Tamiya supporter, I think it's okay that I'm also going to order one out of sheer curiosity. .
  15. Mine have been packed up for a few years, so I'm a bit rusty. Is my memory correct here, I think you have to keep the transmitter stick in the position you move it to and then accelerate. Are you doing this or just returning it to neutral after "selecting" the gear then accelerating?
  16. Great information, thanks. I'm assuming the stock driveshaft will work
  17. Fun to build, great fun to look at and admire when finished. Fun to run slowly around the beach when done or over some dirt. I've built several including one with the Novak HV-Maxx brushless system and another, the TXT-2 with a Traxxas Velineon brushless setup. The problem with Tamiya is that the Monster Trucks just are not I the same league as some others for performance. They can be made to at least catch up, but at a high $$$ amount. If you want complete durability, performance and value for running hard, than most other manufacturers are where to go. If you want a good build and some eye candy with some casual running stick to Tamiya
  18. I forgot about that option, I am looking to simplify the build, the transmission is too much work to build for a single speed I looked at the two links you provided, I'm not sure exactly what is included with each link ? Looks to me like the motor is basically the transmission replacement ? Mine will be for a Globe Liner.
  19. Is there an aftermarket manufacturer that builds a single speed transmission that drops in with little modifications for the line of Tamiya Tractor Trailers/Semi Trucks ? I have no use for the 3 speed included with the kits.
  20. Nothing beats original Clod Buster parts. Came over to Canada all the way from Australia.
  21. Description taken from tamiyablog: Length: 576mm, Width: 190mm, Height: 267mm. ● Assembly type 3-speed transmission allows gear changes via separately available 4-channel transmitter. ● Ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members. ● Realistic 1-piece resin bed is reinforced with a metal frame. ● Power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft. Built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering. ● Highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles. ● The highly detailed body breathtakingly captures the slimline form of the truck cab, including the distinctive bucket tooth design grille. Depictions of headlight guards, front bumper and skid plate underneath are parts of a truly realistic finish. I've highlighted and underlined the official word, it's definitely not aluminum or metal . Still going to buy one.
