Comical Avante from a back order with Fusion Hobbies arrived today :D 

51112108596_2a26f290d8_b.jpg

This will get the blue anodised hop up treatment, I’ve got just about every option part once I pilfer some stuff from the heavy dump truck and the farm king :ph34r:

after a bit of a rummage in the box I found the painted body is quite translucent, I plan to paint it a bit more. 
 

the tyres are awesome, half the reason I’ve tried them on other wheels for various projects.

 

Congrats, I have one too NIB on my display shelf.  I don't intend to build mine, but keep as a collector.

For me, I got 2 more Willy driver figures.. reason is I thought the 3 I bought from another vendor got lost in the mail after 3 months and bought these..but they arrived. It's fine, I intend to assemble and paint all of them.

there is one big flaw in your plan, they wont have rides and that wont sit well with you...

i wonder if the Comando Elite will be able to break past your lines ("Small soldiers" film 1998)

Any chance of a build thread @ j@mes, please 😊

My local track does an M Series (mini class).  21.5 Fixet timing motors.  Does anyone here race this chassis?  I have a few questions and won't see my local group until next Saturday.  My first question is what body would perfectly?  I plan on building it with the longer wheel base.

Not sure why the pic turned vertically when I attached it...sorry

 

EDIT:  Would this body work?  I like it better than the hatchbacks I'm finding.  It says M-Class

https://www.amainhobbies.com/bittydesign-hyperm-mchassis-1-10-on-road-body-clear-210225mm-bdytc-hypm/p1259092

These do look like a good choice of chassis/kit.

Post lady left this with a neighbour because I was out, not sure why she bothered, it's so low she could've slipped it under the door :ph34r::lol:

Alloy motor mount and steering/ suspension springs for Dual Rider trike . 
installed them all as well as upgraded to the LaTrax 7575x motor. And took it for a rip around the living room (since the front drive is covered in snow ) 

RC Mart finally Came through. Or rather Hong Kong Post came through. RC Mart order history shows the items shipped March 10

Hmmm, not quite, although it has that "lowdown" look to it ;)

I had a similar lengthy shipping journey from RCMart.  Being on the west coast of North America, I incorrectly figured the package would travel east out of HK.  Instead it travelled west, landed in Europe and then landed in Ontario, Canada before making its way to the west coast.  Travelling the route it took was over twice the distance than if it had just gone east out of HK instead of west.  It took 35 days to arrive.

I’m convinced mine went the Long Way ‘Round and got stuck in the Suez

I got one of those recently @SupraChrgd82

Where's yours going to go?

I worked out what was wrong with the driveline with the JK - pinion was the wrong pitch. Let's try a 48dp one...

It went into the wife’s Wraith last night with a 21:87 pinion:spur.  The ESC was zapped with the USB link to adjust the throttle and brake to doubling curves, drag brake response set to “fast” rather than “instantaneous”, zero punch, 15% drag brake.  It’s smooth as silk. I think you’ll really enjoy yours, especially if you use the USB link.  
 

Do you know if we can get the Revolver wet or run in water?

A plethora of bits have all started coming in!

Tamiya Cement which is awesome!

High Torque servo saver which took some putting together! Those springs are strong.

A lot of paints.

DF03 wheels with foam inserts.

A new ESC, spare bearings, some wheel nuts, masking tape and curved scissors.

..but the best bit, a Mignight Pumpkin!

P.S sorry some of the photos are upside down :D

Picked these up from antics £54 each, well impressed until the motor stopped turning on the truggy within 10 minutes.

That looks nice! Nice and mean!

I had planned to out mine in my Outlaw (coupled with a clone SC10II transmission) but was advised by someone far more experienced than I on another forum that the exposed natur of the outrunner motor wouldn't be good in that rig given the likelihood of water ingress or damage (zero protection offered by the Outlaw) so I'm planning to out it in my SCX10III instead.

Looks like you'll have more protection on the Wraith but I wouldn't want to submerge it. I think HH suggest the cheaper sealed cans are OK for submerging but I don't really know about the more expensive kit.

Hang on, a quick delve brought up comments from the man himself on the matter...
