  1. Mike,

    I see you talked about the Thumper Chassis build. I have heard about this in the past and cannot find it on line. Do you have a link to it?

     

    Thanks

    Doug

  2. I love my touch n flow...until i found this. https://www.greathobbies.com/productinfo/?prod_id=DXMAC11 I find it works a little better than the touch n flow.
  3. Have you found that chassis how to? It's by Thumper. I have it on my computer somewhere if you still need it
  4. Also dont pull the tape off vertically...pull it back on itself, more or less parallel to the body.
  5. The issue with the engines is the mating edge on part 2 is narrower at the front than it is at the rear. I'd rather replace it than work it and make it fit. --- Mike
  6. I just started building these kits, and noticed an issue with both engines. Does anyone know where I can get aftermarket engine replacements for these 2 kits?
  7. i LOVE IT! I've always loved the look of Hot Wheels cars...especially the rims. You've nailed the look!
  8. Thats too bad. I may be wrong, but they hobby seems to be as strong as it ever was, retailers are just not carrying the products any more. Our LHS closed down a few years ago after the owner had a heart attack. His son didnt want to keep the store open, he said it's a dead hobby. Meanwhile there were always customers and i know it was making money. A few months ago an RC shop opened up, they carry models but their prices start at $50 for a kit. At those prices, I'll be shopping online more.
  9. Wait..Michaels isnt going to be selling kits any more?
  10. Like the picture above, nestling lengths of styrene or aluminum rod would probably be the best way to do it. Any idea of the size from smallest to largest I'd need to achieve this? If my LHS was still open all I'd have to do is take a walk down there and slide the smallest piece of rod into the next size and so on. But these days I have to order online, and since I'm bad with sizes that are displayed with the numbers on the right hand size of the decimal point I'll need a little guidance. It may save me from ordering a bunch of stock I just dont need.
  11. It's ok, I was genuinely amused. Spending all that money just to drill a hole in a .75 cent piece of styrene
