And a nice case for it. The plastic one for my 3000 is rubbish.

I had to give up on Dremel's and move to die grinders. I think I just expected too much from them, burnt three out, in fact burnt out a new one in a day once.

Restoring cars (the real ones you sit in) they are useful for getting in places to grind weld down or cut little bits off but really it's a step too far.

There have been times I wish I had one just for RC work recently though, the die grinder is a bit of animal for that kind of thing

Mine was this one - not bought from there

I quite fancy the drill press stand but the reviews aren't all that and I don't have anywhere to put it!

I'll just carry on with the occasional butchering session in the garage!!!

Postman bought me some goodies today thanks to a couple of tc members. It’s amazing how pleased I was to receive a £25 set of plastic wheels!. These are by far my favourite wheel type and look perfect on all the Avante family!. 

Will have another box next week with top force with Tamiya carbon chassis set and a super astute then that’s it for a while. Got to give the credit card a rest!.

The case is verrrry nice! Had a lovely afternoon putting all the bits and pieces in the pots in the drawer while sat watching the cricket. Happy times 😃

Oh this is purely for RC, modelling, light DIY and general man-cave pottering. Nothing too heavy duty!

He brought some of the parts to rebuild my 80’s Hornet for the second time.

My first lipo battery, a 2s 3325mah pack, slightly longer than a standard NiMH, charged it up and changed settings on my esc to accommodate it. Cannot wait for tomorrows drive!

These really take me back to my childhood, I specifically remember clawing out pebbles from a dry dusty unmade road trying to make up a course.

There’s a guy on UK eBay selling what appears to be the fake sport tuned motors as well - £19.99 with free postage.

Thanks to @Mad Ax I have a Suzuki Swift shell for my M05-RA. It is at the office, however, so will have to wait until later in the week before it can meet the chassis...

An RTR TA-04 for £42 delivered? 

Go on then :D

Always wanted a belt drive on-road car, so when I saw this I had to grab it.

I recently bought a TT01, but after getting this I put that straight back up for sale :lol:
