  1. As some of you know I am collection the 4WD buggies from my youth.From Boomerang to Terra Scorcher. Well at least I was till this popped up locally on GumTree for a good price. Told myself I was buying no more buggies till I had the ones I have finished. You know that lie we tell ourselves and the boss. It came with a box instructions and loads of bits and bobs, in full running order as it was raced. Ok so its not got the right wheels, or tires, the body is BRUSH painted inside and OUT!!!!!!! badly round the decals. BUT it was only £60 and came with Hi Caps and 2 Tamtec cars with it. The Tamtecs are already with a new owner, the wheels, original blue shocks and near bald tires and body are on their way and the money from the Tamtech's paid for for the car and the bits so its basically free.....This hobby pays for its self!!!!!! OH the lies we tell ourselves and our other half's. NO MORE until I have finished all the work on the ones I have. UNTIL that MUST have bargain comes up cause you secretly really fancy a (oh lets be honest anything Tamiya that looks good - **** thats just about most of the back catalogue!!!!!) It started with- I do LOVE the look of the MadCap and the Astute so if they ever came up at the right money.....And a Nissan King CAB, oh and a monster beetle, a lunch box (OK all the monster trucks really) maybe a FROG or a FOX as well BUT only at the right price.......honest!! **** who invented eBay you have a lot to answer for. SO what have you bought cause you found it at the right price rather than went looking specifically for it. Show us how you found it and how it finished up (basher or display)
  2. I have reached a point where I’m not sure where to go in RC terms. I think I want a scorcher but I think I’d be better off fitting a scorcher body to an ORV chassis? Probably handle better than the original, a bit like the F150 I’ve just done along with the Brats. I fancy a CC02 but I’m not sure why. My CC01 does everything I want and if I get bored I have the Dynamog/Hippy bus. I love the M chassis cars but don’t really have anywhere good to run them. So where does that leave me? So for me at least I have to go off piste. So Avante or super Avante are the only 2 “buggies” I like. I do not race and am fairly gentle on transmissions. I can afford a stock Avante and for me I don’t think I would need any great hopups. The Super Avante is quite a bit cheaper and I have a 13.5t brushless motor sitting in a drawer waiting for a home. I like both bodies though I think Gunmetal would be my colour choice. ( metallic 🍊❤️) possibly. If I go for the Super I think I would add front and rear driveshafts and fit a dedicated lipo to save having to strip the steering. All in all it would probably cost the same to do either. Having said that the Super on Preorder from Fusion with 10% subscriber discount is very tempting!!! Fellow addicts I need help. I should say I love the building so a challenge would be good!! The Brat was a fun build but I need something a little more challenging 😥
