Recommended Posts

Last of the Baja bling, just thought get it all and be done with it. 

Rear shock towers, rear shock mount, rear bumper and a couple of titanium pins for the upper rear arms. 

Can concentrate on the 5ive now after this.

I would still go with the MF-01X Jimny much cheaper to buy plus selling of surplus bits brings cost down more and lets be honest for a shelf queen the MF is a nice chassis, here is the long shaft  https://www.timetunnelmodels.com/live/catalog/tamiya-54655-prop-shaft-p-71701.html

 

and here is Jimny  https://www.timetunnelmodels.com/live/catalog/tamiya-58614-suzuki-jimny-without-custom-deal-bundle-p-57650.html

Its the short shaft I need. Rare as unicorn poo.

 

Also hoping to save some cash by buying the XM abroad but we will see?

WELCOME TOOOOOOO

SEASON (TT0) TWO OF What Did The Postie Bring @SimplyChunk For September?? I totally didn't finish these series too early!

 

On our series premier of well you just read it so I hope you know what it is we are seeing: a holy bunch o' crap. 

Lanyards! Tool boxes! Receivers and more!!!!! 

 

Starting with our first delivery:

 

We got some lanyards to go on our transmitters, just as a safety precaution cause of my clumsiness! 

On the left is Simplychunks, and on the right is mine.

Simplychunk got me a toolbox so I can start keeping all my bits and pieces in it for my cars.

He has already starting moving some of my bits from my boxes into the toolbox for me 😄

And onto the main event... 

I bought a TT02 chassis, it has a few hop ups included with it, thank you @Kpowell911 for the LandL suggestion, but we got this from ebay instead for that much more money.

There is going to be a few more episodes after this because I still have to order myself a bodyshell for the TT02, but I haven't been able to settle on anything just yet. I like the look of the BMW M3E30, but I'm still unsure about it. 

Any suggestions are welcome 😄

 

Thanks for stopping in!

See you soon. 

Intrigued to see what shell you put on the TT02 🙂

I liked the dumborc ddf-350 so much I got another (and due to only been able to store 10 cars on it which ain't enough for me) also got some hex drill bits, 2 sets of wheel nuts/covers and another 4x dumborc recievers

Some ukmonsters delrin body mounts for the clod, which I instantly chopped the long ones in half, drilled them through and tapped and added some extra grub screws.   Now I can run the fronts half length for the basher body, at a nice low stance, or thread the chopped off extra section on to run the original hardbody at stock height.

Welcome back to the second episode in season two of:

 

What the heck did we buy this time? How much more do we have to buy before we're done?

 

In the mail this time Simplychunk received for me: a shock plier, a ball joint tool, a hex/driver box set, R-Clips with rubber retainers, repair stands, a bearing insert/removal tool, A Hobbywing 1060 RTR Brushed.

Received not in the mail: A cheap sewing box from Poundland (with a picture how Simplychunks sets up his). 

 

Starting with the shock plier:

We still have a couple more things to order for my TT02, but we're waiting just a little bit longer before we do that since we still have a couple of months until September.

Really looking forward to our little project(s) now. We really have a lot to do/look forward to come September. 

 

Thank you babes for inviting me on this journey with you ❤️
