My new car(s)

I got this car, a Losi 1/24 Short Course Truck (SCT) a week after I bought the ECX Smash. And since then I’ve bought a lot of extra stuff for it. Originally it was defect with a brushed engine. It nearly worked, but I quickly ordered a a new brushless engine on Ebay. I also went to the local RC store and bought a set with pinions gear. found out later that I already had a pair laying around, plus there where some that was in the package the car come in. So now I have a lot of them. What you see underneath is not the SCT edition, but the Truggy. It got bigger wheels, a cool spoiler, and a lot smaller space under the “hood”. The bigger wheel made the Losi run a lot better outside, but the hood was a bit cramped to keep all the electronics inside it. So now I’m back to the SCT body, but I modified it to use the same big wheels!losiTruggy

So on to my next car. You may remember my Nitro to Electric conversion of the old Tamiya TGX MK.1? I finally bought a proper engine too it, the Mamba Monster v.1 which I found on for a fair price. A week later this package arrived at my local mail store.

mamba-1 mamba-2As you can see it was fairly well package. With a lot of paper. He even sent me his old tool-kit which has been wonderful! And I use it every time I work on my cars. Plus some spare parts. There was even a light controller (I think it that).

mamba-3Here are some more images of the car. The body is a bit to big, and after some Googling I found out that it is supposed to look like this (it’s a fuel car, what a coincident).

mamba-5Too much air around those wheels for my taste.
The other car he had sent was a Sakura Zero by 3Racing used for drifting. Sadly it is missing way to many parts. So I’m just going to scrap it. Probably saving every part in a bag.

Enjoy some “inside” photos.
