Can't believe you could just find and order a new chassis :shock: Saw one on ebay - really rare to see nos!
Looking forward to see the rising star of Gemini :)

Mantua Models seems to have even complete kits still available. I bought one years back, besides the damaged box it arrived in the rest was all new and perfect.

Going to be honest, I didn't either haha. I think there's 1 more on ebay still.

Traxxas XL-3 controller. I've been hunting for this part for a long time. Several folks told me not to even bother looking for one, because they are so rare. To find this one NIB feels amazing. It will be a perfect fit in my TRX1 build.

Got my Gemini SLX NIB for less than the price of that lot... And @GoMachV maybe right when he says there is still some available at Mantua Models...

Some M-chassis bodies in the mail today.... firstly a Bodyworx (Frewer Racing) Mini, and also a Ride Lancer Evo X.
Bodies.jpg
The Mini will be put on one of the M03 or M05 chassis currently in build, and the LanEvo will hopefully fit nicely on the naked M04 I have, seeing as it is set for 225mm wheelbase.

Hoping to find some more cheapish M-chassis bodies soon, as have a big pile of fwd Mini chassis' in build....
Osiris is the key.

Futaba 2PDF, Wanted one for ages, already got the AM version I've had since new, Just need to source the 3PD PCM version now.
The Japanese site i got it from said it was 27Mhz, however came with 40mHZ Crystal installed Hmnnnnnnn?????
Apparently 40Mhz should have a green flag? Orange was 27.095Mhz. Not a scratch on it, some surface rust on the lanyard. ordered N.O.S replacement wheel foams from RC Japan, and 8 x AA battery clips from Ali Express for $1 ea.

For the longest time it was said to not do the peroxide trick on white RPM parts. It turns them a greenish color..... which is true. I tested some parts a few years ago that I didn't care about. I did the peroxide trick like normal. Now when that whole peroxide treatment showed up it wasn't known right away that you needed to boil the parts afterwards or it would remove the anodizing from any aluminum parts over time. So after the peroxide, the parts went right into boiling water. Left them in for awhile, took them out, changed the water, boiled them again. I may have done that 3-4 times. Did they look like brand new white RPM arms, no. Did they turn out pretty good, yes.

Got some old school goodness. I need to come up with a receiver and a set of crystals to find out if this radio works. It's as weird as I remembered it being.

Finally got me a "modern" buggy. :lol:

A B4 is about as modern as I'm going to get.

Overall, it looks to be in pretty good shape. Some electronics, front tires, and a wing should have it going.
Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.
