The "Postman Brought Me" Thread

Recommended Posts

My rounded stick pack Lipo from Ai Express arrived .

Now my Midnight Pumpkin can go Lipo ( I also have a GoolRC ESC combo that has yet to find a home , perhaps a brushless pumpkin ?) 

I only have one dean’s plug left . So I will either need to 1) make up an adapter, 2 install the Deans on the TBLE in the Pumpkin, 3) commit to installing the new system in the Pumpkin.

I also need to pick up some more deans plugs .

Anyone know any sellers that sell just Male ends of the connector. I have a surplus of female plugs for some reason .

So, it happened.

After the clear TA-03 gear cases some weeks ago the Postman was good to me again and brought the fluorescent yellow gear cases for the TA-02 today.

So happy now! Big special thanks to OCD who is a top TC'er to deal with.

Rcmart order which only took 3 and a half weeks, pretty much back to pre Covid time!

So to break it down I have many goodies for my XV01 including slipper clutch and the aluminium suspension mounts. Other goodies for the FF03, including some suspension blocks, diff outdrives and a faster servo. Some MST pre-glued wheels and tyres, although there's a lot of glue residue on the tyre walls which isn't great. Ah well. Couldn't resist seeing how they looked:

Ooh a stealth Durga - that's a good idea. I was going to go with bright and cheery but your idea is much quicker and will save me a ton of effort :P

Some new boots, new bearings and some new wheel nuts for my sandscorcher, it's the first time it's had new tyres in 36 yrs, I'm not sure these will last 36 yrs now it's a bit more livelier with the sport tuned motor

I know, it was actually just under £41 delivered from ebay, still cheap, but then I sold the receiver & transmitter for £25 leaving me a TA04 with esc, motor, servo, body and two sets of wheels for £15 :o

I've already ordered some new bits for it though :rolleyes::D

Hi Wetman the seller is noveltysigns15 on eBay. £6.69 delivered. Aluminium with a double side sticky pad attached..

Cant fit the wheels as the inner bead ring binds on the Steering upright screws, gonna have to get some spacers and widen the track

The last missing bit for the Zahhak was the pinion gear. Missed it to order the last time. So first drive on Monday.

The TRF419 adjustable suspension mount is for testing purposese. Will see, if I can adapt these parts on the Top Force rear suspension.
