    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.

    Updating an old MGT 4.6. Build question
