Re: Cerakote Questions

I have had multiple bicycle frames Cerakoted over the past few years. The results are durable and the matte finish is aesthetically pleasing. I have never used it on RC, having always done powder coat in the past, but the thinner and more scratch resistant finish appeals to me as well. My local powd...

@RogueIV , if this was the one on eBay, I nearly pulled the trigger on the lot myself. Reason (or rather Christmas bills) restrained me.

Re: So what did you get in the post today ???

The truck is a Kyosho XRT Sport edition. The chassis throws it off a bit because it is made out of an old STOP sign. Someone along the way broke the front bulkhead plate (XR-03H) and held the chassis together with an ingenious method.

Kyosho Dirt Master Ultima SB

Looks like a classic buggy body is back! RB5 based, rear motor, and with a gear differential, this buggy should be a blast!

Re: So what did you get in the post today ???

I have a problem. A DR10 followed me home. I can't stand No-Prep, but a $99 kit with free shipping and no sales tax was tough to pass up. I think I'll turn it into a buggy. Screenshot_20230216-213005_Gallery.jpg I got this Team Magic Vampire 2wd from Romulus a few weeks ago. Should be a fun build. S...

Re: Needing information on a clod

The photos could be deceiving me. I'm inclined to say this is a Boyer chassis. It doesn't quite look like a Boyer chassis, but a closeup on the link mounts could tell more. Is it true and straight or distorted? The gearcases appear to be JPS, are they marked on the sides? Single shocks are probably ...

Re: Needing information on a clod

Correction. JPS cases indicate that this is possibly a John Boyer chassis. Someone had some coin into the build at some point, but it has changed over time. Boyer's chassis usually had nicely brazed link mounts, as this one does, but the paint is terrible. These were usually powder coated. Also, Boy...

Re: Esc recommendations

I would suggest the Hobbywing 10BL120 ESC as a good budget level ESC. I use this with a Surpass 13.5 motor in my Tekno EB410.2 and in RT6 17.5 truck and RB7 buggy as well. There are certainly better units if you are chasing the bleeding edge of performance, but is is a reliable option for recreation...

Then came a Raider that I made a low offer on.
