So, last week I bought a NIB Zahhak from a fellow member of the forum and now Im wondering if this car is a runner or it should remain a shelfqueen. Im going to build it as I dont keep unbuilt kits, but I have no real idea about what to do with it. I have been looking around and have not been able to find a lot of spares, and that makes me think that Im not going to be running the car a lot. I despise ball diffs (out of lack of experience mainly) but ive seen that a fellow member has made a 3D gearbox to use oil diffs (which I like), but Im not sure I want to start doing mods. What are your ideas? any advice on spares or compatible parts that could make it a runner? Thanks for the help!!
Second prototype of my TA06 gear diff transmission case the rear motor TRF201X and DN01. It uses all the kit parts but replaces the ball diff with the TA06 gear diff. I got some spacings wrong on the left hand case due to using the wrong reference plane, but i have another version coming from Shapeways which will hopefully sort it. Even now it is tight, but fits with no modifications which is what i hoped. I'll put it on my CTE RC Shapeways store once i have completely sorted it. No more melty ball diffs!
In another in my occasional but continuing series of Buggies That Would Look Awesome With A Grasshopper2 Shell, I give you the TRF Grasshopper2(01)! I had one of those "I wonder" moments this morning and dropped the trimmed down spare Mad Bull shell I had made up as a Grasshopper2 to fit my DT03 onto my DN01 chassis. As it's a spare, a little more trimming later and it's sitting quite nicely! It even picks up the original Mad Bull front mount on the DN01/TRF201 front spigot! It's not currently attached at the rear, but some Velcro on the shock tower would probably do it. It's very gappy so I think a black painted Desert Gator shell underneath as a chassis cover would sort it. The aerial even fit through the DT03 body post hole I drilled!
