I have been entrusted by forum member Jason1145 to rebuild his tamiya Thundershot for him.
Here you can see the buggy as it arrived....
There are a few incorrect screws, some have also damaged heads
The steering hubs are on the wrong side
The friction shocks to be replaced with yellow oil cva's
Some new parts included to also transfer over
I shall update these pictures at various stages to show progress
Received car as described above and started the strip down
Stripped down the gearboxes, yuck! so much grease!
The cases are starting to split so Jason wanted new ones rather than repair
New ones were ordered and have arrived!
New pics show plastic parts cleaned and metal parts wiped over and dry clothed ready for the re-build
All ready for Jason to add his finishing touches to
new chassis (supplied)
alloy a5 part (supplied)
new steel pinion (supplied)
new gearbox cases (supplied)
new F part steering hubs (swapped with me for a5)
new triangle wheel adaptors (supplied)
new brushless motor (supplied)
new ball bearings (supplied)
new front and rear shock towers (from me)
yellow cva's (used from me)
new futaba servo spline adaptor (from me)
new B1 parts (from me)
two used drive shafts (from me)
two used gearbox joints (from me)
the odd screw here and there also needed replacing
