  1. Returning after a long absence from RC I’ve just purchased an Avante 2011 and Egress 2013 from Tower Hobbies here in the US. As a kid these were the two kits I dreamed of owning as I turned the pages of the Tamiya catalog. At the time, my after school job only allowed me the cash to get a Hornet. So now I have these these two kits, found this site and wondered if I could get some advice on motors, ESCs and servos that would suit these two cars? I have been doing a fair bit of research online - but there is just so much to choose from. I was looking at going for a Spektrum servo and receiver with AVC, and going with an ESC+motor combo from Hobbywing. Understandably, I’m trying to mix some nostalgia with the up to date Lipo batteries, brushless motor and so on. The cars will end up as weekend drivers - some moderate bashing fun. Although I wouldn’t mind if I could give a couple of my buddies with brushless RTR buggies from Arrma a run for their money. Lastly, if I documented the build, would anyone be interested in seeing the progress and pics from these two cars? Thanks in advance for any guidance you might offer.
  2. While i like the look of the pumpkin Lowrider i find the Kit wheels a let down . Whats the options to change them using MO6 wheels maybe from another kit and what off set would i need in order to better fill arches ? As it comes the track width just looks wrong IMO . If anyone has any photos or links to images of Customised MO6 lowriders feel free to post them .

    Revive a lipo

    Guys is there a way to revive a over discharged lipo ? My eldest step son has fully discharged one on his 2 stroke 1/5th buggy not knowing that he should have had a cut off or alarm fitted . I know its a long shot but just trying to help him out and save him some money . I have a imax B6 charger - is it worth giving it a go set to using another setting other than lipo or is it likely to just go up in smoke - or worse ?

    axels

    I need some advice - not again I hear you groan lol . My next project is more than likely going to be based on a Tonka Indian Winnebago . These suckers are heavy and large - approx. 23inch long and 8 inch wide and weighs roughly the same a cantilever tool box . I have some plastic T REX 60 axels in my spares but are they strong enough for something this big ? Any thoughts guys . Cheers Arron

The third Channel will be for remote winch control and i think i would perfer some sort of toggle switch to activate it . Can any one point me towards a quality but resonable priced 2.4 gig one ?
  7. Hi All, 1. Does anyone know if these were ever made? 2. If they were ... does anyone have one for sale or know where I could get one from. I drive a real mk5 Cortina Estate and would love to have an RC version of it. If you can help me find out if they exist (if they do) and help me get hold of one, I would be extremely grateful. I know there are a vast selection of shells available and I'm hoping that this is one of them. Many Thanks, Aaron.
  8. I have a set of Stadium Blitzer wheels that have being really baddly painted yellow - yuk . They were bought for next to nothing and the tires are only fit for the bin . I want to strip them and re paint . My question is what method to use . Would the oven cleaner work , do i need some brake fluid or is there any other product that will do the job without affecting the plastic rims ?
