Not the postman but perseverance and good fortune bought this 1/2 a (hardened) drive cup back in to my possession. It fell out whilst driving about in the local car park. The Heavy Dump Truck has CVDs all round after losing a dog bone last time! 3mm lock nuts now fitted.

Feels as good as getting stuff though the post!

We did the same thing on the sand viper last week. Sent the kiddo ack to the ball field and his eagle eyes found the same part by second base!!

These Stanley Sortmaster stacking storage boxes are brilliant for RC stuff and keeping organised.

I already had 3 so this one can stack with the others

...Oh ****. Always read the dimensions and check. At £7 delivered I'm not going to bother returning / replacing it. I'm just not looking forward to my wife coming home to laugh at me now :lol:

I have 10mof those left over from the kids SKYLANDER craze. great for seperating out parts for builds with the movable spacers!!

Missed these on eBay, stumbled across a supplier in Europe so I snapped them up for my Terra Crusher build 😀

First time ordering from LandL Models, this turned up today so it was quite swift. 

What is annoying however is that the plastic bag the body was in was open at one end and the rear spoiler AWOL. Fortunately I think I can make the spare wing I found work; it's originally from a TL01 Porsche VIP Cup. 

Could do with some fancy wing stands for it though...

Ordered a couple of the slightly larger ones that are £9, based on your post. They came today, and are definitely handy for storing greases, zip ties, spare screws, Servo tape, craft blades etc and all sorts of stuff. 
 

I was hoping compartments would be wide enough to store tools like pliers (which are quite wide when open), but still.. very helpful for bits and pieces. Will get some for the garage too. 
 

thanks! :)

Any chance that we can have a look at the Amarok in the back?

This was an old build and I just found some pictures of it. 

The body was supposed to be Pactra Pearl White but as you can see, it came out very silver!

Here's some pictures of it out on a crawl. It had all the options you could fit to a CC01 at the time (fancy shocks, barrel springs, stroke extension etc.) Performed OK, but it's no crawler. Unfortunately the tires perished (cheap Chinese crawler beadlocks) and now the body is un-used, but I'm thinking of putting it on my WR01.

Yay, postman delivered at last. This little haul is from RCMart, ordered 24th April, shipped with the SF-Express shipping. 

I've got all the bits to transform my TA05R to IFS, including the bling blue aluminium screws!

TT01 bits so I can build a whole spare chassis (why I'm doing this I don't know)

The universal drive shafts should fit my CC02 with short wheelbase. That is if I've used the tape measure properly :lol:

Thanks for letting us see the pictures! :)

What do you mean the tires perished? And how did they got ruined?

I was curious on the TLT-1 tires in the previous picture.
