  1. In my desperate search for a Tomahawk or a Beetle 2014, I am starting to consider the Javelin as an option. It's a great looking car which keeps some retro looking elements and with proven reliability and lots of driving fun. The problem is that I already had a 4WD car in the past, A Kyosho Shadow 4DW, and it was heavy, and drained the batteries too quickly, also I've always found 2DW buggies much more appealing than 4DW. My question is, how reliable would it be turning sometimes the javelin into a 2DW buggy removing the shafts and chain? I've recently done it myself restoring my Shadow But it's difficult to say if the conversion is good or bad, because this car steering system, copied from the Tamiya Boomerang ( I think ) really sucks and is very imprecise no matter what you do, also the front transmission adds weight.. The car is fun to drive but it never was great no matter if it was on 4WD or 2WD. What do you think? Can you turn a Javelin into a 2WD with success or it would be just dumb? Thanks PS: Do you guys know if my Shadow might be worth selling or someone would be interested? I keep all the parts.
  2. Newbies sharing, just tryout. here to share some of the mod i did for kyosho re-release series, thinking of some body may interested in the mod and improvement i did. - Front knuckle of Tomahawk replace with RB5 parts. thinking of mounting modern wheel. - For Beatle, replace front and rear shock with optima re release 12mm bore shock. and the handling just feel much more better. -Optima 2016: adding cooling fan at rear motor protecting cage.
