  8. Perfect, thank you for that mate, definitely another one to look at for me now then, always good to have a couple of solid choices. I’ve also found the throttle curve on the Hobbywing esc’s a bit “lumpy” too at low down speeds.
  9. These are great little trucks! I wouldn’t say no to one of these…..
  10. I know what you mean about cost. Sometimes I think people who buy kits overlook the cost of paint, masking, sand paper, etc. Polycarbonate bodies are not so bad but on a recent hard body paint job, I used 2 colours and multiple cans of each, plus primer and clearcoat. The overall cost was close to 100 GBP just for painting the body and accessory parts!
  11. This? https://www.taylorrc.co.uk/product-page/copy-of-vertigo-losi-5t-20t-hex-drive-pinion-gear-101120
  12. Hi. Looking for a 20 or 21 tooth 7mm hex drive pinion in the UK. Anyone got one or know someone who has stock? Cheers.
  13. I took the spark plug out and the tip was black so I did what you said, I left it overnight and I also took off the exhaust, which contained a lot of leftover fuel so I poured the fuel out and it started, I also tested with different fuel mixtures (1:40, 1:32)but im not sure on which works the best, I've started tuning the carb and doing some drag races with a friend that has a nitro, but the 2 stroke engine doesn't seem to reach very high rpms, but I'm happy with it at the moment, should I try a tank of 1:25? Or will that harm the engine? I also prime until I can see that it's full and then, choke on, pull until it sounds like it's about to start, choke off and start it (it normally takes 2 pulls).
  14. Yesterday
  15. It was one of those, bought, used a few times then stuck in a shed and forgotten about.
  16. Brushless is awesome, but I'm biased as it's my preferred method of propulsion. However, it ain't cheap. You can cut costs with a 35 quid motor mount and make your own battery boxes. For the ESC, Max4 is king, awesome piece of kit. Cells? Plenty of choice out there. Looks like a well cared for, hardly used truck. Enjoy.
  17. I've given the injora esc a little test. Very nice so far. I've only used a 2s lipo so far. They are 3s capable. I had the crawler gears in the gearbox with the Injora 48t motor. The low down control is very good, I'll have to give it a comparison to the hobbywing but I'm sure it's smoother. Really nice looking compact esc. I saw a YouTube video a good few months ago and the first version of version needed some improvement. I left it a while until I thought it was sorted. I definitely recommend one for your Trx4m, ax24, fcx24 or other mini crawler. I'm probably going to get a few more. I'll try and get some videos on my crawler course.
  18. Nice! I much prefer the black and white body of the og 5ive over the newer silver and orange 👍
  19. Finally ran the Kagama which I think I got in November! Was a bit of a shake down to make sure all was well so only ran a single battery pack, but no issues and ran really well.
  20. Built them a new home - got evicted from the garage unit I had so now storing them at work. (I own the company and the office so why not 😆)
  21. @lorrylemming thank you for the advice my batteries are all good!
  22. Well in a few days anyway 😁 Paid over the odds but it looks so very tidy and in good condition, even the chassis is virtually unmarked. TBH I wanted a 5ive all along but there was nothing even remotely local to me for sale, don't get me wrong I certainly don't regret buying the Baja but the DBXL was a bit of an impulsive 5ive replacement. I am not 100% if I am going to keep the DBXL now, we will see. Also not sure if I am going to keep this petrol or go brushless, only thing helping me decide is the potential additional cost to go brushless, this is basically complete even though it will get a full strip and rebuild with some obviously added upgrades 😁
