"GPM RACING PRODUCTS - THE SOPHISTICATED PARTS FOR R/C CAR"

Hmm... never noticed that it said that on the card before lol.

Unfortunately in my eyes it is not true. The threads in the servo mounts are not drilled precisely so the screws sits in them inclined. Also one thread on the motor mount of my Dirt Thrasher is already worn out.

Oh I know. I was pointing out the irony in their slogan.

Paint, shock oil, and some bearings for my G6-01. Figured I’d upgrade the bushings since I’m running brushless, and see if I can get a couple more mph out of it :D

Neo-Fighter DT03 arrived today.  Now I need to decide what direction to go with it.

Already have a 17T steel pinion but I need at least some more bearings before getting it up and running.

I have the same one and it's a cool compressor.  Until one tries this simple, yet effective cordless compressor, one is missing out on the FREEDOM of being able to take this thing anywhere to paint various projects.   I use a cheepo 3600mAh NiMH, and it can easily run over an hour.  Sure beats using an old tire or compressed can of air as source.  :lol:

Haven't had much time for the cars the past few months, but came across some Marui Shogun bits that were just dropped off. ^_^

I already have a complete shogun that I need to get started on but it requires a lot of work and the wheels were smashed.

Now I have a new wheel set! And the gears feel decent too so happy with that. :lol:

I have been planning a Kyosho Raider rebuild for months and finally found my chassis.

Added bonus of getting this in the same deal. I now have the difficult decision whether to do two?!?

How does the weight compare to the standard chassis? 
 

It does look very nice BTW 💥

This arrived today 

Nismo Skyline GT-R R34 Pennzoil

Mounted on a TA03F Pro chassis that will need a little love.

Nismo Skyline GT-R R34 Pennzoil

I'm in heaven 😇

Also some team bluegroove bodies arrived along with MCI decals using their combined posting service. I can now potentially finish a Thunder Dragon, Grasshopper, Nissan King Cab, Futaba FX10 and a Kyosho Outrage!

And actual Pennzoil decal, not Forward!  :lol:
