So I have bought myself a well used (I admit this may be a bit of an understatement) Gravel Hound from everyone's favourite on-line bidding site. As is often the way I was looking for a new Tamiya project (snappily codenamed the Christmas/Birthday money project) and I happened to stumble upon this little fella. I wasn't looking for anything in particular just something new and as I haven't owned anything on the DF-02 chasis before I decided to take a punt as the price didn't seem to bad. To be fair to the seller he was upfront and honest with his photos and description - "very used RC car in semi working order with plenty of wear due to age and use" And it's hard to argue with that....................... Freshly out of the box and bubble-wrap.... It has certainly been enjoyed!
I'm after a replacement for my knackered Rising Storm body. Not fussy about paint colour (if already painted), or shell design (Dual Ridge, Neo Scorcher, Aero Avante - , Rising Storm or Gravel Hound) - any will fit. It's just for bashing, so cheap as chips please. Alternatively if anyone knows or sees one going cheap in the UK please let me know as I have a spare tin of Metallic Purple which has no home! Thanks!
Is 13x2 too fast & too weak for Gravel Hound? I was going to mount a 21t or 23t on Gravel Hound. But I found a 13x2 motor in my stash of old motors. I've never run 13x2 before--I thought it was for light on-road cars. I'm thinking anything less than a 21T would have too little torque for a 4x4 (especially on pavement). Does any have experience with 13x2?
For sale, a ready to run Gravel Hound. Fully ballraced, Alloy centre propshaft, Alloy front shock tower, F350 Hi Lift wheels and tires for hard wearing traction TEU101BK ESC 'Pimped' with a custom made solid aluminium heatsink for better heat dissipation, and a Deans connector. ACOMS Radio Gear and servo. New silver can out of one my recent new build cars. Ready to go, usual scrapes to the underside, and a small repair to the steering cross joint (A10). This can't be seen in the photos as I had a slight 'oops' after the photo was taken, making sure the radio worked ok. Few spare parts, including custom made tall battery posts to allow use of a big 3S LiPo if you want to fast with brushless. £60 plus postage, payment via paypal gift please, or you can collect if you wish. If I can find a NiCad or Nimh battery that still works I'll chuck one in as well if it will be of benefit (I only use LiPos now)
