    Very, very nice. The steering sucks on mine too, not least because the tyres foul the body so early in the their turn. I did manage to overdrive the front axle though which helped a bit.

    Thanks not so toy like.

    Thanks, it’s a nightmare, I was hoping to get it dialled in at the G6 as Pete and Jonny are way more technical minded than me.
    Wraith axles are a possibility and as luck would have it I have a set that are narrowed but are slightly wider than the ones it has.

    I’d be in trouble if I get caught in the woods with my willy out again,  but that’s a different story  😉

    But that’s a real tidy example….Now you’ve got me thinking.

    I’m going to get one, just amassing money for a couple of other builds and then I’ll order it.

    Are you going to convert it to leaf springs?

    Definitely unless you get one 1st and decide it’s no longer for you 😉

    It’s nice but wrong scale for me, I’ll stick to 1:9ish.

    Not my scale either, I must admit that as soon as it was back together I considered shifting it on.

    This big ol’ paper weight has been sitting idle for months. Figured I’d upgrade the electrics with the Spektrum Firma 40

    Clever bit of kit, even plays a little tune as it fires up.
    Some pics from today at the rocks with the Rochobby Jeep. Sadly the sun didn’t show up till much later.

    I like the olive drab one. Which one is faster though?
