What did you do to your model today?

Did it take charge?

Yes, it still works perfectly, which is funny when many of my much more modern batteries have given up!


This is what it goes in:

Holiday buggy? Or Beach buggy?

Holiday Buggy from the early 1980's.  I decided to restore it after foolishly painting it many years ago.  Will start a new thread tomorrow documenting the work I've done so far and taking a close-up look at the buggy and all the period electronic equipment.

Replaced the stock servo on my Trx4 Defender. I swear those stock traxxas servos have a countdown timer. 

That certainly wouldnt surprise me mate :rofl:

Started and ran two nitro Savages that hadnt been used for about a year.  One had a stuck carb so a reminder to use some after run oil in carb. Both went well after some tuning but old original tyres have started to split/crack on one.

Did a bit of maintenance on one of the TRX4s.

It had a good run when we were on holiday in North Yorkshire.

Cleaned, checked and re-greased both diffs.

Greased inside of the axle bearings.

Replaced a worn end on one of the rear rods.

Checked pinion and spur.

Flushed motor internals with GT85, oiled bushes.

Cleaned and rebuilt the 4 leaking shocks, used 3x o-rings instead of the problematic Traxxas seals.  (Did the same on the other TRX4 and not leaked since).

Cleaned the sheep **** out of the tyre treads.

Fixed broken wire on lighting.


Job slowed due to being unable to remove a lot of the stainless screws. I fit a kit made by RCScrews ages ago and nothing but problems with them, very soft and round out too easy.  They are fine when screwed into plastic but I have a lot of alloy parts and have to use threadlock. Now replaced with better quality stainless screws/bolts.


Ready for it's next outing.
