    Wltoys 144001 only works for a few seconds after turning on

    Hey guys, hoping you can help me out here. I bought it fairly recently. I brought out my car in the snow (not a lot of it) and it didn't want to drive! Only spun for a bit and then just stopped.

    Is the WLtoys a959b worth it?

    In my opinion, yes. Here are my thoughts after a few weeks of ownership. • Fast! Clocked it at 37mph but probably could get a couple more out of it • Flimsy! A front shock broke, and after replacing them with stiffer shocks (came from amazon, not sure what kind of vehicle they made the...

    Please can I have some advice on a cracked diff case?

    I drove my wltoys 144001 off a skate ramp at my local skate park and the shock tower hit the railing at the back of the ramp and cracked the diff casing. Is there a specific glue I could use or do I have to replace the whole diff case?(it is the front differential). Thanks in advance!

    Hi guys New in this forum but not to RC. Just thought I'd share that I've written a whole lot of articles on upgrading the 144001. Most of these are free or very cheap upgrades and where I have used new parts I have tried to be as budget conscious as possible and avoid unnecessary bling (not...
