Re: Mark 1 Ultima ( turbo?) cheap rebuld

Delta lockdown in New Zealand, time to play with my budget ultima rebuild. Decided to crack open the old MK1 ultima rebuild, having trouble getting parts in NZ so attempting to use up as many parts as possible. Hand cut carbon 3mm top deck, removed battery tabs as shorty will be running along the ch...

$10 cost hornet challenge

Got this literally thrown in with a banana box of RC I bought off a local guy, was going to throw it out but noticed it had bearings and never tinkered with one before. Stumbled across a locally produced bodyshell in a rc shop clearance bin for NZ$10 and though why not see what I could scrape up out...

Re: CV Joints for Rocky

Found an easier solution for the rocky, ran the 3racing universals for the optima ( very reasonably priced) and swapped out the M10 x 5 x4 mm bearings for M10x5x3mm, gives 2mm of wiggle room and they fitted nice with some shimming. Also the Tamiya hard outdrives splines fit right up to the factory d...

Re: $10 cost hornet challenge

Small updates, front shocks are from a 1:14 truck, oil filled, threaded the shafts a little more to fit inverted on the front, m3 screw under the mounting, ans a sway bar ball fitting threaded on top. This allows us to use an oddball turnbuckle i had lying around from a tamiya set, helps to stiffen ...

Re: $10 cost hornet challenge

Little more progress today, did away with the mini servo, wasn't happy it could handle the load, so i replaced it with a S148 for the time being, did unearth an old Futaba S9102, Alerion servo, same speed and torque, but low profile. May find its way in, also gave me the chance to use up the ugly bl...
