Nice to see it has gone to a TC home. I would have snapped it up if I hadn’t already got an FJ Cruiser NIB and a Rock Socker opened (only primed the beadlock  rings so far).

It's actually for my son, he wanted a proper crawler for his birthday. So had a look around and saw this, he is going to be so happy with it. Hopefully will have my CC01 finished by then and we can take them for a walk in the trails!

The company I work for in my day job is flippin' awesome and gives every employee £300 every year to spend on "personal improvement", which doesn't need to be work related, so learning a new skill or improving health etc. People have bought Drones, flying lessons, musical instruments. This year I decided it was about time I got an airbrush so mine went towards this:

airbrush-and-compressor-new.jpg

Sparmax TC-620X compressor, with Iwata HP-CS with optional 0.5mm needle and nozzle parts. Awesome service from https://www.air-craft.net Also shown are Lacquer Retarder, Lacquer Thinner and XF-3 Flat Yellow that I needed. The whole lot was just over £400, so £100 odd of my own money too.

I'm aware there's a learning curve with airbrushing but I have seven weeks holiday from said company this year, and four weeks still to take, which will help with that :D

was browsing for hop-ups for my old corolla TA03, ended up getting this (minus the shock oil + grease, which cannot apparently cannot be shipped out from japan). it does work out way cheaper than getting individual bits.

but now that i have it, i figured why not get a new shell for it instead... i think this is how people end up with too many rc's.

Very nice kit bud👍

I was thinking of buying one of these a few years ago but went for the R TRF instead mainly because of the wheelbase suited the body set I wanted on it and the different coloured dampers perplexed me a bit🤔

Spent the last couple of years looking for the pink servo stays from the RS TRF 🙄

The postie delivered a radshape bumper for my rough rider  today. This one is slightly different to the Sand scorcher one i have from them

Wing mount plates for my Thundershot:

They were so cheap that I bought 3 to justify the postage. 😁

A couple of bits for the Clodbuster and CC-01 

Ordered from China last week here yesterday, has anyone noticed things getting here from China a bit quicker lately?

Clodbuster Body mounts looks good but might mean making holes in the body a bit bigger

Interesting, I'd not considered those. I had one in my XV01 and took it out, didn't like the feel. I'll keep an eye out for a good deal on one of those.

Up to you obviously, but I didn't get on with my Top Force when it had a one way fitted. Braking force was reduced a fair amount and the car got really twitchy on tighter turns.

Another addition to my growing bodyset collection just arrived from overseas. The box is a little bit of wear, but the contents are mint and perfect.

Its becoming hard to find sets like this for a sensible price, which is why i find even with the import taxes etc, it still cheaper to buy them overseas.
