The "Postman Brought Me" Thread

Recommended Posts

These came from the sales section but they came in a RC Channel box labelled bruiser wheels. Perhaps Jamesssb could confirm ?

Over the last couple of days actually, full bearings, new tires and a body/wing/etc set for my Boomerang.

A sheet of stickers turned up a week or so ago.

On the way is a Blackfoot 2016 shock kit, a pair of chinese 75mm aluminum oil shocks (for 5th damper mod), 2 batteries (3000mah Nimh) and a EC3 to Tamiya adapter for my charger (Prophet Sport Nimh). All for the Lunchbox.

And the mailman wonders why i'm camping out next to the mailbox :blink:

Yep, from that angle it is the reason I am not all that thrilled with the M chassis version, wheels WAY inside the arches, I wish I could fix it, but I have been unsuccessful to date on that issue.

Following the advice to do this for my first truck, I spotted a reasonable deal :)

Motor bought, suspension bought. Just need to pick the right paint. Looking for a nice silver (like the box are above, or similar to the Mercedes F1 trucks). I'm thinking TS-76 Mica Silver is the closest, any tips?

Parts to brighten up a DT-03

And courtesy of Percymon, some wheels for my M06 project and a Ball diff for the Manta Ray in-case I fancy a change from the geared diff.

this is the last two weeks worth:

new body, gear cover, alloy c-hubs and knuckle arms and alloy wheels. I looked around and about 100 mm tires seem to be the recommendation for the CC01, but after fitting the body they don't look very scale. Any suggestions on what I could replace the tires with?

I also printed myself a snorkel for the Pajero, had tried to print some other things as well, on only managed to get a Lunchbox battery holder as well, most other prints failing. My biggest problem with 3D printing at the moment is prints sticking when printing ABS, so yesterday I caved in and ordered some borosilicate glass upgrade for the print bed.

Alloy Bruiser wheels, spacers and a Knight Customs SRB engine set - happy man

 

Thanks Jamesssb

And then everything was back to normal. Things have been slightly askew without Percymons post in this thread :) 2017 will be a good year after all.

That would be great, but as you said in those wheel sizes, not much offering for an offset. I think it is a mixture of longer axles and spacers and then the wheels, but I gave up as it just didn't sit right with me for the proportions. I am a picky person though.

White wheels came today. Just need the other 2 tyres to come so I can fit all 4

Got another mini...............I know, i just bought one for cheap but started looking at a couple of mods and found this roller in mint with a few mods that are worth more than the purchase price of the car. (Tamiya aluminum shocks, titanium screw kit, and bearings) so I couldnt pass this up :) I'll be selling the other once I get ball bearings put in.

Oh and scored this Suzuki Swift body for fairly cheap!

My custom painted TRF 201 and TRF 211 bodies arrived back from the painter.  I did the math and it turns out I can have them professionally painted for less than I was spending on paint and vinyl masks to do it myself.  :o  Now my two racers match.  Uh oh...  It's getting serious!  I just need my driving to come up to the level of my buggies.

Not today but his past week I received my MIP diff and 2 vintage Tamiya catalogues.

Not a bad start after a very quiet 2016 as far as rc goes.

Got a alu gear housing for my Monster Beetle. It also came with thicker alu side walls.
