  1. Its not mine but I've just shared it on a Warwickshire flying group so someone may get in contact.
  2. The XR10 juststock (G2.1 or G3) is cutting it close with a 10.5t motor. I'd run a quicrun 10bl120 with a 10.5t or I'd drop to a 13.5t with a juststock. The juststock can power a 7. 4v high voltage servo which would be nice.
  3. I'd use something like either of these, but with any CVD you want the absolute minimum lubricant you can get away with. https://www.makeitbuildit.co.uk/schumacher-dry-fluid-extreme-gear-lube-10ml-df4260269080731-84264?gclid=Cj0KCQjwzLCVBhD3ARIsAPKYTcTcKEAKDIJ5k4YS5KOjmnCympBr_vKJxwTySt2G8MnwTI5cbP2IhTQaAmLWEALw_wcB https://rcraceprep.co.uk/all-products/ols/products/cvd-lubricant
  4. Is that grease on the CV joint? That's going to collect so much dirt.
  5. For an RTR the Associated RB10 is the best and possibly only option. Being rear motor its not perfectly suited to carpet racing but fine for a beginner. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/associated-rb10-ready-to-run-race-buggy-blue-1337594 For proper racing you want something like these: https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/schumacher-cougar-ld2-kit-1337909 https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/associated-rc10b64-team-kit-1344342 But, its quite an investment (~£750 for the kit, electronics, batteries, transponder, tyres etc) to get one ready to go. I'd clean up your outdoor car to give racing a try before you commit to anything.
  6. Probably some drag racing rear tyres? Have you done any other setup like the rear links and diff? https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/proline-hoosier-drag-slick-sc-22-30-s3-soft-sc-rear-tyres-2--444756
  7. Painted a body for the turbo racing C73. Mine is the blue and gold, stock is grey and green. Tried to go for something cyberpunk or blade runner, not sure if it worked haha. Clipper for scale.
  8. https://uk-m.banggood.com/ZOHD-Drift-877mm-Wingspan-FPV-Glider-AIO-EPP-RC-Airplane-PNP-FPV-Version-p-1682958.html?utm_source=googleshopping&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=cpc_organic&utm_medium=cpc_us&gmcCountry=GB&utm_content=minha&utm_content=meruem&utm_campaign=aceng-pmax-gbg-en-mb&utm_campaign=aceng-pmax-uk-up5ca2-220422-meruem&currency=GBP&cur_warehouse=CN&createTmp=1&ID=520986&ad_id=&gclid=CjwKCAjw7vuUBhBUEiwAEdu2pFSRjz47_lpL-63jNG5aKfZDAxQUNuEbSuFOhIntjcLB4m2KdwlqhhoCO3cQAvD_BwE Zohd Drift is smaller than a metre but not a great glider, doesn't have big enough wings.
  9. As its knackered already, I'd prise open the plastic case and try to get to the circuit board inside to see if you can fix it from there. From the picture you've put up it looks like the bottom side might be glued on. To replace you would need an ESC and a receiver that is compatible with your current transmitter which might be hard to find. This ESC would work. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/hobbywing-quicrun-1625-brushed-esc-382829 This receiver MIGHT bind with your transmitter as it looks like a Flysky GT2, but not certain. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Model-Receiver-FlySky-FS-GR3E-2-4GHz/dp/B01EIYJ3M4/ref=asc_df_B01EIYJ3M4/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=314530710906&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5551251935933745168&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1007201&hvtargid=pla-349467168153&psc=1 Plus the cost of soldering connectors to match and some tape to mount everything, looking at £35 or so. Add another £15 or so if you need a new transmitter and receiver pair. As you can its worth opening up the current ESC/RX unit to try and fix it.
  10. I really like this video series on nitro cars. Very well explained.
  11. Badlands would be a good grass tyre for long term use. For maximum performance you want a spike tyre in a soft compound, although finding them in truggy sizes looks difficult. Something like these would be grippier but the tread wouldn't last very long. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154372585110
  12. There's a nitro, electric and an upgraded electric like the EXB and XTR models, although RTR. Seems more like a race truggy than the Arrma, Corally or Traxxas options. https://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/160182?fbclid=IwAR3J7kv68DyJYOy6hdJur5MhFW-XZUwliLYHYfpJMsnN8nLucHVvfEwYSN8 https://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/160181?fbclid=IwAR35IuUhBmIPaAuWWmZFpy3ftJ0kz_Bw_EzrePXgUOvfW1BJUUmcE6qGa_o https://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/160180?fbclid=IwAR2kudjJT6orkoIthX_gV14-gWIMyXu0---Wpptyd_BiLG-MmNB28Gn1R0g
  13. This listing has the correct dimensions as an option. From China but cheap. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304016876168?chn=ps&var=603171957211&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&amdata=enc%3A13YaNHgvdQdytyfyhBSvnbg9&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=603171957211_304016876168&targetid=1647205088560&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007201&poi=&campaignid=17206177401&mkgroupid=136851690655&rlsatarget=pla-1647205088560&abcId=9300866&merchantid=424799600&gclid=CjwKCAjws8yUBhA1EiwAi_tpEepVG0GstKvt2K-mertt5oZ-UnGCLvAUEXnRMyqW2aXBQ6r7ia70cxoCOYsQAvD_BwE
  14. There are a few different places where a shim or insert could be missing on an 8ight at the front. If you search "TLR 8ight 4.0 manual" you should be able to find an exploded view and check if something is amiss. After that I'd think about shims.
