Does anyone have the lowdown on the suspension pin kit for the Tra**as SRT? Is it another find them all individually brain buster or is there a kit available? Not the screw in type.
Thanks for the help.

So, if you are trying to figure out what to do with that $99 DR10 or $75 Losi 22S you bought, just an idea:

Only $75 in RC10Talk donations in September. :(

So, if you are one of those that only thinks about donating later in the month, and then it hits you that you don't want to donate because you will only get the perks for a short period of time ............ todays the 1st! So, a whole month of perks!! :D Minimum donation = $5. You can't buy a breakfast combo at McDs for $5. :mrgreen:

The last several months have been pretty poor. The traffic always takes a dip here in the US during the summertime so hopefully that attributed to it. I've been contemplating putting up a 3rd ad but would like to refrain from doing so of course unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks for the help.
for some reason my parts list doesn't list any pins...at all! But the exploded view shows:

2-(2640)-44mm
4-(2637)-31.5mm
2-(2636)-26mm
2-(2639)-48mm

I know its not what you were after for a 'kit' but thats all I got for ya.

I'm trying not to start an unnecessary thread/topic. Maybe this should go in the Body Shop..

Does anybody know how the reproduction body thing works? I've read that TBG, for example, takes un-cut originals and back-pours a mold with it and gives you a couple of copies for your trouble. I'm not sure how the others (Boki, Penguin, et. al.) do it. Whether they have original molds or not.

Do any of the above do modifications after they make a mold? I don't need anything added or "built up" on the body. I would like some material shaved off. Just a (what would seem simple, probably due to my ignorance regarding the process) little tapered narrowing in the vertical plane along the sides of the body to achieve this look:

Where does a guy even start to try this? It would suck biggly if it resulted in a failed attempt. But it would be totally rad if it could be done and then be available to all as another body option.
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I'm pretty sure I used Tra**as #2739 for my SRT. I'll double check when I get home


I can confirm the pins I used were #2739

Hey guys, I'm searching for an adult novelty tape measure as a holiday gift for my contractor buddy. It looks like a regular tape measure, has the standard rule on it, then it has a pin-up girl, preferably nekid but not a necessity, at every 12" mark. I've tried dozens of different search parameters at Amazon and the WWW, with no luck.

Can anyone help a guy out?!?!? :lol:

Was getting tired of making so many trips to my 2nd favorite peanut shop, for this weekend's stop, just went for the 10lb'er. :D This should last a little bit. That is a 17" laptop for reference.
