  1. It's just that it's a matter of life follows art, but I'd say that the X-maxx is a fairly accurate representation of...well...the other X-maxx in this video.

    Old School RC Pictures

    I scanned a couple prehistoric pictures of my race trucks from many years ago. They are Traxxas Blue Eagles (which I still have) and a Traxxas Hawk (long gone). I also still have a Traxxas Sledgehammer, and a Traxxas TRX-1 buggy. How about you guys, do you have any old RC pictures to share? (that don't fit into the above forum topics)

    30th Anniversay Cat

    1987 was a landmark year for Cats. While Schumacher's Cat XLS was winning the IFMAR 4WD OR title, Traxxas was launching the first hobby grade RTR in the form of the Tom Cat, or just simply the Cat. It is a car heavily influenced by Tamiya - a Grasshopper style chassis & trailing transmission, a body shell reminiscent of the Fox and Yellow CVA style dampers, albeit with a unique way of adjusting spring rates. Inspired by an article on URC, I plan to restore and gently modify this car to race at next years Iconic Revival - 30 years after the Cat was released. This is what I purchased on eBay recently vs. what I would like to create...
  4. So, the 6s compatible Castle Creations Mamba Monster ESC in my newly-acquired, used E-maxx Brushless fried itself on its first outing. I'm thinking possibly a ripple current caused by using a pair of 2s 4200mAh LiPos that couldn't handle the current draw has caused the capacitors to fail. I must admit I didn't realise this was a possibility until after I'd blown the speedo and searched online for a possible cause. So, I now need to replace the speedo and get hold of some better batteries before I end up with yet another useless RC truck I've found a used example of the same speedo for £90. I was quite happy with the performance of the Mamba Monster on 4s but that seems like a lot of wedge for a used speedo, especially as it'll have no warranty if I fry it again. (It looks like some Mamba Monster speedos had a habit of frying themselves and were replaced under warranty). The current model (Mamba Monster Max) retails for £175. That's a lot of cash for someone who isn't supposed to be spending money on toys. I've got a baby due in just over a month! It's especially a lot of cash if I also need to fund two new 2s packs. HobbyKing list a Turnigy 1:8 ESC: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-160a-1-8th-scale-sensorless-esc-w-fan.html It'll only go to 4s, but then I was unlikely to run the Maxx on 6s anyway as I don't have any 3s packs. I already have a Turnigy programming box for my 1:10 TrackStar Turbo ESCs but I don't know if it will work on the 1:8 ESC. At less than £50, it seems like a bargain. I love the TrackStar series and use them in my HotShot and my CS drift car. HobbyKing also list their own 1:8 ESC: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbykingr-tm-x-car-beast-series-esc-1-8-scale-150a.html £60 and it'll run up to 6s. I'm not sure if either of these will give the same performance as the Mamba Monster; part of me is reluctant to spend any money if I'm going to end up with a less good truck. And so onto batteries - I'll want hardcase LiPos of at least 5000mAh with at least 30C rating. I've used Turnigy NanoTech batteries for a while without any issues but it was a pair of 4200mAh NanoTech stick packs that were in the truck when the speedo smoked itself. I guess it's worth spending on good quality packs if it'll protect my investment in a good quality speedo. Any advice gratefully received
  5. Hey guys - I have a bunch of projects on the verge of completion and not enough spots on my shelfer / runner shelves to fit them so I've listed a bunch currently on the bay. The Varicom Panda is a fun runner but I have more runners than places for them. The re-re Hornet and Grasshopper are theoretically runners, but the GH has only been run a few times and the Hornet has never been run at all! The Traxxas Cat is the last of my early Traxxas buggies. I like them and have enjoyed owning the little pieces of history that they are, but have had to whittle down my fleet to just Tamiya, Kyosho and one RC10. I just don't have excess room and there are Tamiyas and Kyoshos that are must-haves for me still finding their way to my shelves. The Clod body actually came off of a Clod I got in a trade from TCer @markbt73 but I want it box art red and couldn't bring myself to ruin the nice vintage decals just to change the color. As for the Bandido and Pegasus stuff these are project cars I picked up for restorations that ended up being excess to my needs (new Bandido, Pegasus, etc showroom entries forthcoming sometime soon-ish). All the auctions are no reserve - if I wasn't the one selling them to make space, I'd be bidding on them for sure: http://www.ebay.com/sch/waynethebrain/m.html
  6. Hey guys - if anyone reading this is working on or needs/wants a bunch of good NOS Traxxas Cat / Tomcat parts I've got an auction going for some, including a manual, decals, tires, gearbox, and a bunch of other stuff. Looks like it may sell for cheap too... which is fine by me. I just need to get it out of my house! My Cat is already fully restored... http://www.ebay.com/itm/331774572417
