    That is a formidable collection. I especially love all the Bullheads and Clods. I have always wanted one, but the R5k price for the kit was difficult to swallow. Chance had me stumble upon a second hand rerelease one for sale in Cape Town, which I had snapped up for a more palatable R1k . This left me with some cash to do a full rebuild, fit new gt tuned motors, a 860 esc, and a 4 link conversion, which is much more difficult when you don’t buy a ready made conversion kit for R800 and opt instead to mix and match random aluminum links for..much less. Anyway, the thing is epic fun, and it did duty this past weekend by barreling into a troop of fighting monkeys camping out on the driveway.

    It's been awhile - I think I did - the actual part isn't available separately, I must just get round to cutting one.

    Also have a Team Losi Mini-LST - need to find new batteries for it

    I spend quite a lot of money and time on rebuilding a Traxxas Revo.

    Took a 2.5 Nitro engine chassis, bought all the parts over a couple of months and put it all together. Use a Traxxas E-Max gearbox and dumped a 8T brushless motor in there.

    Lipo's was way to expensive at that stage so I made my own battery packs (Ni–MH). Was a 14-cell jobby and heavy as hell. Still that Revo was / is hellishly fast but can also crawl over almost everything.

    Will see if I can find some photos or even just dust it off and take a couple.
