  1. 'Basher' is a relatively new word in my vocabulary, one which I learned here at tamiyaclub.com, and now I need one. So I've 'won' an original Subaru Brat rolling chassis on ebay, shipped for a total of $60. I thought it was a fair price, although it showed up with a broken front body mount due to inadequate packaging. I believed an off-road RC car would make it through the US mail without getting broken, but wound up slightly disappointed. On the other hand it has bearings throughout which is a nice bonus. I was actually looking forward to the locked differential of the early Brat, but this one has a differential in it. Anyway the Brat was one of those cars I drooled over in the Tamiya catalog as a kid and I'm pretty excited to finally have my first ORV (man was I disappointed the fist time I saw a real Subaru Brat with it's tiny tires)! Not shown is a lexan Tamiya Brat body with decals, also from ebay.
  2. Hey All! I am brand NEW the the club and to the hobby! I always wanted a hobby level RC car when I was growing up, but we never had the $$ to play. Now as an adult, the urge came back! So I began researching brands and styles, I feel in love with Tamiya and particularly the life like 4x4 Hiluxes... then I saw the price . So I decided to search locally on craigslist for a cheap car that I could completely disassemble and rebuild as a first project in the hobby. I found a great deal on an old beat up Blitzer Beetle, complete with remote, charger and two batteries; so here I am! I do not plan to shelf this once complete, rather run/race it! Thanks to everyone on this forum for the wealth of information already here! Here is a run down on the current condition and future plans for my NEW Blitzer! Condition I think this is an original, not the re release... any way I can find out? Does it matter? Broken nose piece, cracked body (nose piece mount/RF fender) NOISY gears Refuses to switch to reverse from forward sometimes when rolling (maybe this is normal?) Limp, sagging suspension, bottoms out in front Worn tires, overall well used (loved) bug Planned Upgrades Upgrade to GPM alloy DF-03 shock/spring dampers Upgrade turnbuckle suspension arm and tie rods all around with DT-02 kit Upgrade suspension arm shafts with TL-01 kit Upgrade to alloy front knuckle arms, flip to reduce bump-steer Stabilize f/r damper stays with steel rods Upgrade to ceramic bearings all around Replace all gears, add Cera-Grease Upgrade to DF-03 CVD drive shafts (Can I upgrade the rear knuckles to anything?) Upgrade to 2000-3000kv Brushless/ESC waterproof combo (any recommendations? cheap/quality/not overpowering) Replace tires with Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs Repair body Paint wheels/body (Pearl White/Flouro Yellow/Metalic Blue scheme) What am I missing? What have you all learned? I plan on updating this thread as I go, I'll post pictures and ask lots of questions... feel free to follow along! Thanks all!
  3. On a car that you've built strictly for bashing, do you put on every sticker that came in the kit, or just the important ones?
  4. You know, this is the first Traxxas I've liked the look of
