Hi TC friends. Here’s one of a few models I’ve been working on when I’ve had some spare time whilst doing the new RC venture. Started off as a NIB Dark Impact but is more of a Light Impact now!, sporting different wheels from the Keen Hawk, 3Racing front and rear shock towers and a skid plate from me.
Running gear wise it was always going to be a basher so electronics are not top spec and comprise of an Etronix Probe 12 ESC, Trinity Horsepower motor I found in my pile of bits, though I don’t know how many turns it is, a digital metal geared servo which I bought 4off for £19.99 delivered which seem fine and a cheap and cheerful Eurgle 2.4ghz transmitter set-up. I bought this a while back and after having some initial problems with the model memory set-up a fellow TC’er (Tizer) sorted out the problem and all in all it is a bargain steer wheel package for bashing around with. It actually feels more sturdy than my Spektrum DX3 I use for club racing in the week, so at £25 for the transmitter and £6 a receiver for 2.4ghz is a real bargain, though the prices have gone up slightly now.
You will have mostly noticed by now the livery. As mentioned I have a few models on the go all sporting non-box art livery and a recent investment in a vinyl cutter has got me going sticker crazy! I opted for a Loctite theme after a long deliberation. I reversed the vinyl to stick on the inside creating this version as with me it wouldn’t be long until cracks and scuffs start to appear!. The OZ wheel vinyl was a complete pain to do as when separating the unwanted vinyl the letters kept disappearing, it certainly made me go cross-eyed for a while. I also did some mini Bilstein stickers to put on the shocks done with laser printer decal sheet and masked the side vents when spraying so I could place some small mesh behind. I then finished the car with a driver figure as I much prefer to see drivers than blacked windows and on buggies especially I like the look of them.
Thanks for looking, happy TC’ing and more parts will be available soon. A full chassis conversion maybe on the cards…..
