    Nitro rs4-2 build

    When i went out of town i found this neat hpi belt driven nitro which i believe is an rs4-2. The chassis is in nice shape but I'm sure with how i drive it won't stay that way. I also got a few goodies such as a thunder tiger 12 and aluminum rims. The tires are worn but i'll keep them on there...

    Trx4 shock and tire question

    Are there any shocks that are good quality but still cheaper than the traxxas ones or should I just get stock. I also have the same question about the tires. Any help is appreciated

    HSP Pangolin - $90 1:10 Crawler kit build

    I'm primarily a fan of nitros, particularly HSP's models, and regularly buy replacement parts from aliexpress, which is why I noticed their 1:10 crawler being sold as a roller kit for $90. I had extra servos, a brushed 35T motor & ESC, generic truck body, and basic receiver / transmitter...

    Build/engine swap: Thunder Tiger into HSP

    Another HSP-based build, this one on their "Flying Fish" pivot-ball onroad nitro with a Thunder Tiger Evo-12(P) After a bit of hacksawing, sanding, and drilling, everything went together quite cleanly. I had to cut 5mm off the engine mounts to lower the engine so a bump box could reach it...

    My Overkill Voltage Project (chronologically, and now in video form!)

    Hello Fellow Bashers I picked up an Arrma Voltage in October of 2020 after a long hiatus from the hobby.
