    Thanks, I'll have to look further into that. Tamiya wasn't even on my radar when I thought about cars until now.

    I'm not sure, these I saw were not Block replicas, but may be the same not sure. Appeared to be a lowered Slash?

    just ordered some billit beadlocks (real beadlocks) and super swampers for the micro crawler. overall diameter of the tire is 1.95''. cute little swampers lol

    already have plans for it, or going at it stock till something breaks?

    from the flying side of the RC world, i picked up a real nice FPV station/setup from Delmarva the other day. only needed a couple things to get it working and installed.

    consists of the ground station brief case (battery or AC powered), and the transmitter setup on the phantom itself.

    [​IMG]

    It pulls the video feed directly from the mini HDMI port on the side fo the gopro.

    [​IMG]

    now i just need a gimbal mount to replace this fixed one

    first one looks like a tiaya. not sure about the second. the FJ is a redcat racing crawler with a different body. they go for about $100. good machine for the money, but i prefer exceed over redcat.

    not sure about the last one.
