My other half has no interest in rc stuff, but keeps telling me to go out and use them as it gets me out of her way. Only time she objects is if something wants doing in the house or garden, i give rc stuff prority 😀

That looks well smart 👌, especially for the cost 😉

The Traxxas Slayer was looking a bit thrashed and bashed and thought i would give it a bit of a tidy up, wasnt willing to pay the price for a new genuine shell and wheels as it really doesnt get used too much these days, so onto aliexpress i went, got a short course shell delivered to me for the grand total of £13.21 and a set of short course wheels and tyres which had different sized hexes to fit lots of stuff which is quite a nice touch i thought for £17.37, the end result is not too bad at all of i dont say so myself especially for the price!

For me it was down to red or black as they matched the shell, i did see the green ones though

@BlackSeaRC That's awesome mate  :good:

 

I love the look of the oldschool Kyosho's

 

The rather unconventional colour scheme actually looks better than I remember.  The original 'friction dampers' were truly awful so I upgraded to oil-filled dampers.  I found the original receipts for the Kyosho Option House Gold shock absorbers.  They were 20.40 GBP for a set of 2, so a total of 81.60 for the whole vehicle.  That was a lot of money in 1991!  Unfortunately, this only partially resolved the design issues with this vehicle.  It was riddled with design flaws that rather spoilt my enjoyment and I always wished I'd bought a Clod Buster instead.  However, looking back at it now, it is an interesting vehicle and quite rare now I suspect.

The Double Dare had twin motors and 4-wheel steering and was very fast but extremely difficult to handle.  It was almost impossible to drive in a straight line because the steering servo was weak and as soon as any wheel hit a bump, it would affect the steering.
