Long overdue and apologies to bloodclod for not putting these pics up earlier.
The close-ups show bloodclod's alloy mod that fits over the A5 part, making it effectively bullet proof!
Just to say i'm glad I bought a couple of spares for my others!
After two and a half years my Thundershot has finally failed, the pinion sharpened to a point but it was the Superstock motor that has eventually seized!
A full strip down, new bearings and a superstock BZ are poised!
New pinion (steel this time) and 14T motor installed, thats it. 'RAT' Tshot continues until next breakage!
Lost a wheel nut, bent the front anti-roll bar and snapped a front drive shaft, so will be stripped and cleaned after all!
No! will definitely run until something major gives, as its my main runner I dont thrash it as much as I used to,
from second picture down its all current pics
My 14T pink motor ceased up today, replaced with a new tamiya 23T RZ super stock.
Everything going fine for five minutes then while turning over a pot hole the buggy cartwheeled multiple times.
Once up and running a rear wheel suffered plastic fatigue!
All sorted now!
The other rear wheel broke!
Finally painted the driver! looks much better.....
Clean up, some new pics and new rear lower arms, drive shafts, joint cups and tyres (kept the bald ones for on-road!)
With other Tshot resto's taking centre stage this year, I have decided to 'retire' my first Tshot re-re build of 2006
to the shelf and moved it to restored (it could still be run if needed!)
Tidied up text above, four years since retirement, 13 years since release, still hoping for another production run or chassis re-release
If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
