What did the postie bring you today?

Recommended Posts

I got my delivery from Modelsport!

It includes: a new chassis, new diff case, some thread lock and a rear driveshaft.

It still ran but could’ve really done with an overhaul and as the parts came to under £20 including MS shipping, I didn’t really see why not!

A Tamiya Lunchbox, put a bid in on eBay and won it, never had one, and think the kids will enjoy it, there is just something about these, had Grasshoppers and hornets in the 80s but never one of these.

Seems to have all the essential upgrades already,fully Ballraced (haven stripped the gearbox, but they are on the rear axle), fifth shock, metal body mounts and look to be oil filled dampers (don’t know if these were standard and also has a Parma Lexan body.

Good question, I’m not sure, but I have a spare Hobbywing  10bl60, so will put that in instead. The Tamiya one does power up and run, can’t get it to reverse though,

Can’t go wrong with Gens Ace!

 

yup and that battery just manages to fit in the lunchie/pumpking battery compartment, i think i have the batt upside down and i use a little velcro strap to keep the balance connector out the way 🙂
