    Is there a thread on this forum about RC stuff that I missed? I've tried using search but couldn't find anything. I currently have a Schmacher Cougar KR (brushed) and a Kyosho Sandmaster that lives up to its name. I live about 100ft from the beach so when the tide goes out so does the Sandmaster :)

    Couple of pics.

    IIRC the Cougar has a 12 turn motor. It's seriously quick. I run it mostly on grass/dirt/gravel and concrete as I live close to an old WW2 airfield.

    Have an Old HPi RS4 Nitro Super Rally at home that i need to get a part or 2 for, but as its 10+ years old now 3d printing might be my best bet, Looking and getting a WR8 now that I see electric is so much better than it used to be.

    Keep being tempted to get a 1/16 RC tank, probably need to wait till I move so I have the space for one though

    Very cool I shall do some watching later :thumb:

    Just can't wait for the weather to change now. My cars are over my mother's house atm because there's a huge field near her house that has a gravel path that's untold fun.

    I'm also currently building a Tamiya Lamborghini that I'm going to use as a drift car :)

    Very nice Neil. I was considering a truggy for the sand but I got the Sandmaster very cheap and it allowed me to use my existing batteries and so on. Saying that the Sandmaster was balls slow when I got it so I changed the motor to a 13 turn and got a better pinion. Now it drifts on the sand really well :)
