      Okay seems its a red MSA pajero and a black MSA Brat, no sale from me 1/12th is to small for my use

  18. Finished modding the Texan for now, so shocks mounted upright, made a pair of chassis brace`s, longer links taking wheelbase to 310mm, removed fake exhaust, mounted spare tyre low down , cut a drive shaft down in length to get 4WD with longer wheelbase still got Alloy rear axle to fit at some point cheap set of black deep dish wheels, looking forward to trying it out
  19. Okay we are about done for now, managed to dremel an old drive shaft to fit the rear so its now 4WD, re did the shock mounts and managed to drop the back end down about 7mm, so its about as good as it gets on ride height, also took of the chrome fake exhaust, less to break on the trails 😄 future plans............... still want to repaint the cab in flat black for a "moody look" with bits of black rubbed to let little bits of grey to peek through, a kinda weathered look, tempted to do a home made interior with a cowboy driver figure, also i am thinking of re doing the lighting, putting warm white LED in the main lights and taking the ruddy turn signal lights out and making them into spot lights, or amber running lights the lights run of the RX and go out on full throttle so thinking a re wire to hook them up to balance plug on lipo
  20. I was buying Floureon brand NIMH packs from ebay about £19 for 3500mah, they have been superb
  21. not sure if i fitted the long links correct, i put the "kink" end at front
  22. @tomr it ended up at 310mm wheelbase so darn close to the magic 313, will work on it again tomrrow and sort ride height out and maybe redo chassis brace
  23. As promised i have done the chassis and shock mod to my Texan, still needs fine tuning and need to order a cvd prop shaft for the rear so for now its front wheel drive the rear ride height is out of kilter so need to play about with that, i made up a brass chassis brace but already re thinking that, for a tidier look using M3 threaded stud and brass tube (got the bits) A Huge and i really do mean huge thanks to @tomr for the push to do this and lots of other help mate your a true star
