Re: Le Mans motor restorations

Any tricks to lifting the old decals off without scratching the can? Any time I need to remove stickers, I just hit them up with a hair dryer, lift up an edge and peel off. Usually that's enough heat to soften up the adhesive, and a spray and soak for a few seconds with WD-40 takes care of any stic...

Re: Kyosho re-re universal shafts

The modern stuff is pinned vs the taper, but on the ultima for example both vintage and modern axles fit just perfectly in our trailing arms so I doubt there is much dimensional difference

Re: Image .12 engine vs TRX .12 engine

Nothing is interchangeable. The image was a pretty terrible little engine with a glass (not literally) connecting rod. The TRX was a whole new design.

SWB TRX-1 BUILD: UPDATE 24DEC2022

Point of no return. Bags cut open. 20220803_165634.jpg 20220803_165325.jpg Hydrating the nylon parts. 20220803_164808.jpg I don't think I will be peroxiding any parts. IIRC, some of the parts (rear bulkhead, trans. case, etc.) are what they called bitd "glass impregnated nylon" which accou...

Re: TOMY Intruder - now complete

Found a few more GPM alloy parts for this so on they go.... super-rare top deck and also the steering link. Just the front and rear gearbox eccentrics to add now. I have also added some Japanese mag decals across the battery straps and switched the motor to a red prism label 30deg 1990 Demon 27turn ...

Re: GoMachV’s 3d printing thread

The RB10 and DR10 gear diff is a little narrower. I believe it’s the same width as b5 series. B6 ball and gear diffs are sold as complete so it makes more sense to offer this with that fitment. Otherwise people would need to buy a lot of individual parts.

Re: Re-anodizing Traxxas Blue Shocks

Bright dip would be good. Type Ii anodizing, not hard anodized.

Re: Re-anodizing Traxxas Blue Shocks

Advanced precision really did killer purple, champagne, and red, and pretty decent black. The other colors I tried were just so-so.

Re: Re-anodizing Traxxas Blue Shocks

I've done a little reanodizing of RC10 tubs and other small bits with local anodizer. The finish varies a lot based on prep. Just take it to them with no prep kind of a dull. A little fine sanding finishing working up to say 2000 grit its better but all small scratches can be seen, just keep in mind...

RPM 7077 "91 WORLDS" RC10 Team Car Front End Kit

A little side project. I’ve had this in a drawer for a while and decided to get it cleaned. It’s quite impressive what a thorough clean can result in. Boiling water. Simple green. Toothbrush and pipe cleaners. Brass brush on the Dremel and Birschwood Casey Super Blue for the hardware. No hydro perox...

Re: Gas conversion RC10T

Skinny tires and cut windows. Now it needs a windshield banner to cover up the scratch I made.

Re: The dog thread

Beautiful pup!

We have a new family member joining us soon as well. We work with the local boxer rescue and they took in a female that just gave birth to pups last month and we have decided to adopt one. The dad is unknown, so we have no idea what the breed mix is. Might have to 23 and me him lol.

Re: The dog thread

Our new pup. He's a rescue, or rather mom is- the pups were born after mom was found. Mom is an all white boxer and we have no idea what breed pops was. I wanted to do a DNA test but it sounds like they are often inaccurate.
