Some MXL pulleys to complete the transmission of one of the 44B chassis in case I can't find original parts, and some materials to do attempts at pourring tires...
If you get a chance document how you do your tire pours. It seems like a neat thing to learn

It was a good day. My Turbo Optima wheels arrived, and Big Jim's motor book did too.

Early Christmas presents from Ed. 3D printed wheels, body posts, and battery strap for the FXT. And some various sized spring locators, clamps, and cups.

Two of the bags are custom sized to fit big bore and Traxxas springs to early AE (and other) shocks. The fit is awesome.

Thanks again.

I bought that book years ago, thanks to Todd. It is a great read, buy it if you see it.

Picked up some VTA wheels and tyres for a few projects.... these have become somewhat rare here in Oz, so got what I consider a good deal on them.

Weirdly, it's quite difficult to work out what are front tyres, and what are rears.... makes me think I don't have three full sets, but instead a bit of a mish-mash. No problem, only have a need for one set at the moment ;)

This Sand Rover chassis today , it's broken in the usual place for the front spring mounts but otherwise very clean , minimal scratches underneath and virtually mint at the suspension mounting point makes me think this got little use .

I really need to remove Marui from my search terms...

A Ninja arrived today, with its box.

A very quick inspection show a very little use (chassis is almost new and both arms, chassis and battery door are like new). It's complete, the way it was stored was improper as metal parts are rusted, but it has a very good potential for an nice restoration...
I buy kits to build and ru(i)n them :-)

For Christmas, I bought myself a RB10, without the RTR. I have about 26 minutes of internet research that makes me think this should work. :mrgreen: Santa brought most of it quicker than expected, and tomorrow is a PTO day, so I will find out soon enough.

Whoa! That is a serious rubber band shooter! :shock: When I was a kid, we used our fingers. Actually hitting something was a special event to be celebrated. :lol:

Your boy will be picking off flies at 50 paces with that beauty.
