More OFNA goodness

I bought a pair of 3S batteries for this car to bring the power up to 22.2 volts on 6S.
With the stock gear ratio it goes about the right speed for this track, but this car has a major problem. Tires.
There are not many tires available for these cars unless you want to pay almost half the cost of the rolling chassis for a set of Sweeps or Inpanema (spell) tires.

I blew out one of the stock tires after the second run. So now I have a set of tires on there which only cost $20 shipped. They are only cheap Chinese junk, but haven’t worn much after the first run in this video. I helped them out strength wise a little by putting Gaff tape on the inside. However, they appear to have very weak sidewalls as there are already splits in them.
These are the tires.

Here is the video I took today.

Gopro Hero on my head as I drive.

Thanks for looking.

Driving yesterday 29th April

Took a bunch of cars to my local track and drove around for about 3 hours.

took the DM-1 Spec E now with 6S and 17T pinion. It took off on the straight, literally. So I dropped it back to the 13T for this track and it works well. Tyres are a problem. The other problem was that I was so excited to drive it I forgot to video it… DUH.

Though, here is a video collection of the other cars I drove.
Enjoy.
It’s just driving with no music, add your own.

58519 Bruiser delayed in Japan

The new Tamiya Bruiser release date has been delayed in Japan. The new release date is March 31. Can’t say I’ve ever been more disappointed with Tamiya. Shops in other countries have them in stock already, but Japan is lagging behind.

I’ll update everyone on it when it comes in.

I’d say they didn’t expect to sell so many to foreign shops. Or that guy on eBay stole all the stock…

I hope it’s worth the wait.

Toyota TS020 F103

Starting building this yesterday, fell ill and had to finish making it today.

Should be fun to drive, has the black “sport tuned” motor.

This time, I decided to use the Gopro to take one photo every 10 seconds and then I used iMovie on my Mac to make a time-lapse video, here it is below.

And here are a few pics of the finished product, I messed up a little on the tough sticker set.

But this car will be run.

A little Drifting vid 岡山

I’ve put the TB-03 VDS back to stock in the rear diff. So it’s running 50/50 now.
Took it down to the track to play around and make a little video.

Drift Diffuser

Was a little bored tonight watching an old movie on TV and decided to have a go at knocking up a diffuser for the rear of the drift car…

take one plastic A4 folder

cut it up in a fashion that would make it look like something you have an image of in your mind…

Glue it together with super glue.

then test fit on the car…

Later comes paint and finishing.
the sides I just bent into shape.

It’s really easy to make stuff! And fun
