    Nikko Super Sprint

    Perhaps three years ago I was given three RC cars including a Tamiya buggy (2wd), a Subaru and a Nikko Super Sprint. All had parts missing or needing attention. My son used to race his tuned-up Manta Ray, so he was keen to have first drive of the Super Sprint. I had incorrectly positioned the drive servo, so he had to remember the reversed controls. Result? Broken front floor pan on that first outing. These things can be repaired well, so the car was ready next time his family visited. The grandsons had a turn but the outcome was even worse, with a broken suspension pivot and lost front driveshaft. There is a fix for that, too, but it takes patience and a tubular section remodelled with several coats of Araldite. I have dispensed with the slow acting mechanical speed controller and replaced it with an electronic one. Plug and play, no setting up at all. Brilliant! Now three more grandchildren have arrived and are keen to try their hand. The car is fast! Play or sell?
  2. Greetings, Please check out my items for sale area, and be sure to revisit each week, as I often list new things when I have the time... https://rctoymemories.com/items-for-sale/ You can also buy from me on eBay if you wish. But everything is cheaper if you get in touch via my website, and simply use Paypal or Direct Deposit (what I save in eBay fees, you save). Pretty much everything I sell is vintage. Currently stuff for sale includes........... .............And lots more. Thanks for looking. H.
  3. I noticed that there are some Nikko collectors here, so you might find a good use for this. I got this for a project but it did not work out. I have actually tested the controller and it works. If you want me I can take a picture of the crystal inside so you can know the exact frequency 5€ plus shipping. Free shipping in Europe.

  5. Got involved in a new project, converting a 1986 Nikko Dictator to Hobby grade. The car is in pristine condition and it have close to zero wear. I removed all plastic bushings from the front, rear axles and the wheel carriers. Replaced the original Johnson/Mabushi 380 motors with two Traxxas Titan 18T 380 motors, installed a high torque servo with a Traxxas servo saver while still using the stock steering rods. Rewired the car with 12 gauge cables and used only Deans connectors, the ESC is a lipo ready 8T ESC. Installed a FlySky radio system. Will replace the wheels and tires with Tamiya Boomerang ones which I got off eBay. Also ordered 100mm and 65mm oil shocks which I should be receiving today, will update the folder with pictures for this. Below is a link with pics of the whole process documentation in pictures (Photobucket folder) http://s646.photobucket.com/user/cjmarti/library/Nikko%20Dictator%20modifications Video: (Select 1080p) http://youtu.be/pks70AkHsiM?list=UUy1qk1RirzC4OlPOAFDOg2g
