Hi Dadio, can't tell if my reply got posted.
I bought a tamiya/kyosho figure but it looks the wrong scale.

The driver I got was a lexan one , a little smaller than the Zerda one but not bad , it was for a Kyosho Tomahawk , I'll have a look tomorrow and see if I can model up the frame part that goes round the motor , do you have a red or black frame ?

These guys sell 3D printed ones (if that's the part you need)....

The Zerda rear frame section fits perfectly , i just made a model of the link pieces as well and I'm printing three now , they just get lost all the time so its something I've been meaning to do for ages anyway , I'll pop some pictures up soon .

I thought about making moulds out of plaster of Paris and trying to hot press sheet plastic, even bodge an injection mould for a glue gun. Too Heath Robinson probably
