So true.  But alas due to social distancing and for the safe we’ll being of that forum member I have decided to keep them and build them.  It is the just thing to do. 😋😉

Exactly, the person you bought them for needed your expert build skills and you couldn't say no.

Received these yesterday for my mad bull, the plan was to go lipo & brushless but after trying my lipo 2s in my daughters mad bull with an old motor I had I think brushless is a bad idea 😂

Please explain - I’m picturing it but it’s better to hear if it first hand ;)

Thought I’d get these past the missus.  🥺Thanks FedEx for not following the delivery instructions! - ie PUT IN GARAGE!  😡 Oh well, guess I’ll be in marriage isolation for a week... with company of course.  Now, which one first? 😋

Lovely looking buggies.  :wub:

Have you set them up for running?  If so, any ESC/Motor combo advice? 

Is that metallic red on the Optima?  Box art is matt Red, right?

Two new wheels, 1 for the Konghead and then 1 for my spares box.

3 new r/x from China for my Flysky t/x. 

Very happy indeed with these two packages arriving today.

Yeah they are both set up to run the optima has a period kyosho option house spa 240 motor in it from the 80s which I refurbished new bearings and brushes etc the red was a bit of a trial and error for a hotshot body I was spraying which I mixed a tamiya bright red with light metallic gun metal I liked it so much I used it on the optima aswell! The avante has a unused technigold motor with the stock speed controller in it and the black which you can't see in the photo is also backed with metallic light gun metal which really sparkles in the sun!

I've not used the motor in the avante but the spa 240 in the optima is super smooth!

This obnoxious little beastie. 

Came converted to belt drive, with LSD and what look like Kyosho Gold shocks, original three-piece wheels, metal axles and dogbones, and metal steering knuckles.
