So, I made my introductions in the General section so won't go into that. I got my 'Hopper a couple weeks back now. Spent a couple of evenings getting it up and running. This is from the other day. Couldn't resist a spin round the garden. In fact, I've done quite a lot of that The kids (5 & 2) are fascinated by it which is cool. Hopefully they'll get to learn how to drive and enjoy. Next jobs:- Paint the body. I'm in 2 minds as I got Kawasaki green then realised there's an actual factory candy green edition Fit the driver figure & light pods. Need to do some final detailing. Eventually I'll fit the Torque Tuned motor just for fun. Already tidied up the wiring...it's a little bit thrown together in the image Any tips on securing the battery door? Not lost it yet but I assume this may be an issue in the future I really love the look of some of the T4 Works cars. Would love to pick up some of those parts but the costs with shipping are difficult to justify! By the way, any recommendations on photo hosting?
Hey! First of all I must confess I am a Kyosho person, so apologies in first place :) When I was 17 I bought a Kyosho Shadow 4WD which I discovered resting at my parent's place and after some cleaning and new electronics is still working pretty good, it's not a high end car, but still pretty capable for having fun. Now fully immersed on my midlife crisis, I am considering getting one of the 2WD legendary series car. I can't afford all of them ( meaning my wife would kill me ) so I need some advice on which might be the best for me. I like the Tomahawk the most, I find it a gorgeous car and love the platform better than the scorpion one, I've seen also that in Japan there's a bunch of people using it for classic racing. My next choice would be the beetle, I just love the way it looks, and finally I am considering the Turbo Scorpion. Nowadays it's almost impossible getting the first two, so I am considering getting the Turbo Scorpion, which is also a beautiful car, easier to drive, better shocks, and with more evolving options and parts as far as I know. Questions: Might both the Tomahawk or Beetle bodies be easily fitted into the Turbo Scorpion chassis? I really like the TS body but if I can get a Tomahawk or Beetle body and swap it sometimes, it could be fun. What do you think? Can't find any specific info on that, but I've seen this kind of things in Japanese pictures, even using on other platforms like Tamiya DT03. What about wheels? I know the TS uses regular 2,2" rims with hex fitting, but could I try the TH or Beetle ones on it? And final question, Do you guys think the Shadow 4WD might be worth selling? Thanks!
