  1. Interested to know if anyone has tried this yet. Spotted the portal axles for the Hi rock on MS the other night and don't want to spend the money on the chance they might fit. Although i could just buy a Hi rock as well....

    So... Khaki exterior paint job is done and added adapted Mandalorian decals to roof and sides (another coming for bonnet). Also added metal mesh to side windows and rear bed as well as some engine highlights and piece of an old toy to give it added detail. Driver tray has gone matt black and just working on Mando silver helmet design to dry...

    We also repositioned the power switch to the rear so it can be accessed without taking off body shell.

     

    New Voltz 5000 mAh LiPo on the way as well as SkyRC charger and awaiting arrival of Power HD 20kg servo too. Links below.

    Thanks. I didn't look at these before as thought they had to be 7.2V to work in the Mauler...?  What charger do you use with them? 

    You just change the position of the link on the esc/receiver unit for lipo and you're good to go. I bought my Mauler from Modelsport and opted for the lipo package and that is what was supplied, i bought a spare as well. I use this charger for my batteries  https://www.modelsport.co.uk/product/skyrc-t100-dual-battery-lipo-balance-charger-444856

    -That looks incredibly fast just sat there. Never had a nitro myself how do they drive compared to the electric equivalent?

    More TRX4 parts stockpiling. I’m rather surprised at the quality for £27! I wonder how they will wear….

    Injora stuff is quality for the price, i have a bunch of their stuff on my scx24 and zero complaints. In fact i just got a set of their beadlocks in 1.0" with about 3000 screws. Easy build. Surprisingly easy. 

    I can't vouch for their complete rc's but the parts are good and robust and very well finished too.

     

    Edited for too much rum spelling...

  6. Thats an amazing collection , and a dedicated storage place as well! 

     

    I'm relegated to a cupboard in the utility room where everything only just fits. No idea where this next wltoys buggy is going but thats a problem for another day.

     

    Gonna show the Mrs those pics, let her know my intentions for the future. 

  7. Got some +4mm drive shafts fitted today, then got them unfitted too. All is well in a straight line but on full lock something on the front shafts are catching and its internal where the dog bones connect.  They allowed me to fit my brass steering hubs with the brass wheel weights and still secure the wheels, so they're off too unfortunately.

    I have noticed the standard shafts have a small chamfer at the end of the slots where the cheapo ones i have do not. The slot itself may also be a fraction wider on the standards ones but the fit is smooth. I'll match the shaft drive ends at work on monday but until then they're off.

    Managed to make my cheapo shocks work to an acceptable degree. I had to deliberately make them sloppy with loads of plays around the shaft. They'll do until I get something better and they don't perform any better or worse than the standard items. I've heard good things about the Carisma shocks so will probably end up ordering more stuff. Again. Then I'll need shock oil. I know nothing about shock oil. Down another rabbit hole i go...
