Re: Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

That should work well. Where can I buy just the wheels? I've seen a few places that sell the Imex tires and wheels, but only need the wheels.

Re: Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

Either Proline or JConcepts, that would be nice. I did see those on Ebay and they look awesome, but dont really want to spend that kind of money on wheels as I dont run the Mad Force often enough to justify it.

Re: The home page pic contest

Agreed, I think the photo contest is a great idea as well. As Alex said, I always see cool projects that members post and never enter into the contest. The only downside is what Alex hinted at, when someone completes a new project and specifically wants to enter it into the monthly contest. Then aga...

Re: Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

Thanks Andy, I forgot about those. Looks like they're hard to find these days. Hopefully I can hunt down a set somewhere.

Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

Do 17mm hex 2.6" wheels exist? Looking to replace the stock wheels on my Mad force VE so I can run Clod tires and I haven't come across anything. I'd rather not run adapters and Clod wheels as they re not strong enough for 4-6S.

If anyone knows of anything that will work I'd appreciate it.

Re: Barbarian Chassis Carnage

On the rebuilt truck I did add some extra braces to help prevent major damage in the future. I will say that it took a lot to twist it up as shown, it was an extremely hard hit in the wrong spot. I ended up having issues with vertical body posts as well and went with the side mounts, but using squar...

Re: ironcorn's TXT-2

Andy knows his stuff so I wouldn't doubt him, but I've been running these shafts on my TXT-2 for a few years without boots and they're good as new. I run the truck through mud/water/snow quite often and never had an issue with them. I'm sure the boots would help protect them, but I experienced the s...

Re: ironcorn's TXT-2

Paint job looks awesome, really nice job.

Do you happen to know of any online stores in Japan that stock TXT parts? I really need to get a hold of some diff/axle parts. Have quite a few TXT-1/TXT-2 trucks. I used to get a lot from Jason's store, but he seems to be out of stock on most TXT stuff.

Re: ironcorn's TXT-2

It would be really nice to see a new truck from Tamiya with some new design features as Alex said. As for Clod tires they are readily available from Tamiya, Proline, and JConcepts. I don't see tires as the issue right now for the TXT trucks part wise. Its the gear box parts that are currently unavai...

Re: Basher67's Custom Clodbuster

Nice looking truck. For an ESC, I would recommend the Hobbywing 860: http://www.hobbywing.com/goods.php?id=357&filter_attr=0 They run about $20-$25 on Amazon/Ebay and are rated for 12T on a 2S Lipo. They also come with a fan to keep temps down. I bought one earlier this year for one of my trucks and...

Re: ironcorn's TXT-2

Anything with an 11.5-13" wheelbase will fit. I have had numerous Proline bodies on my TXTs and you can always cheat the wheelbase a bit for it to look good.

Re: Alex's ZRP Retro Racer aka ???

Wow, really? As I said not sure if the oven cleaner harms plastic but I never had an issue. I usually spray the wheels and let it soak for about 5-10 minutes, then run them under water and the chrome is gone. Maybe if its left on for longer it can have some negative effects. I'll definitely try the ...
