Ever hear the saying "Do one thing at once before starting something else" ?? no ? nor have i !! :hehe::hehe: :p: That's why i have FIVE projects on the go at the same time.

Ahh well, here are my "Current" projects.

Project 1 & 2

On the left:

Ok, here we have my "E Bay Build" project. This buggy has been built entirely from spare parts purchased from ebay with the exception of the engine and fuel tank. All that remains to be fitted are the front knuckle balls, rear drive shafts, engine header pipe, 14t clutch bell, fuel line and factory Servo's (anyone got any for sale ??)

On the Right:

Here, we have my "Project speed and durability" buggy. Again, a thunder Tiger EB4 S2 Pro. This buggy is having a "Money is no object" upgrade and "Enhancement" build carried out on it. Yet to be fitted are a Buku Neutral Exhaust system, N20 System, Digital Servo's, a select few EB4 S3 upgrade parts, a 20t or 23t clutch bell, Aluminum Diff Cups, EB4 S3 hellical cut diff spur and main gears, Spektrum receiver unit, stiffer roll bars and a few Factory upgrades still need either fitting or purchasing.

Project 3:

Here, we have yet another EB4 S2 Pro Buggy. This one however belongs to my fiance. Not my project, but do it i must. This buggy is to be converted to electric. The engine and fuel tank were sold (!!!!) to me for my e bay build on the grounds that this conversion gets done !. That was six months ago. So, does anyone know where i can get a motor mounting plate from for this little beast ?

Project 4

Thunder Tiger EB4 S2 Pro Buggy Number 4 !!! (That makes three that i own now) Cheers Bartek, it's a great rig :thumbup:

Not sure what to do with this one, i'm running out of ideas. However, i have put my XTM 1/7 Buggy wing on to make a start.

SUGGESTIONS AT THE READY AND.............FIRE AWAY GUYS !! :whhooo:

Doesn't look too bad. Now, wheres my tool box gone and where are those parts hiding....................:hehe:





Projects 5 (T/Tiger TS4-N), 6 (Tamiya Mini Cooper) & 7 (Cheapo Bug Van upgrading) will have to wait to be added. but add them i will !! :hehe::hehe:

I always have multiple projects but anymore these days I've been focusing on finishing one before I seriously tackle another. The other stuff just stays on the backburner until I'm ready to work on them

yo dawg...i hope you know that that supercharger will only tear the poop outa your engine...it does the same thing as basically leaning out your fuel mixture...so even if you richen the car to avoid overheating...its still going the same speed!

Well I think the SuperCharger has a certain "cool" factor to it....but after watching the video posted here the other day....it's not cool anymore. These Nitro engines can be a pain to tune sometimes WITHOUT a supercharger....so adding that layer of extra hard tuning and running it too rich....it's just not worth it. $150 SuperCharger to ruin a $150 motor doesn't seem to add up to me. lol

It's called heavy duty fun and experimentation !! lol. But the super charger is staying put.

I got plans that involve the amount of boost that it creates.

As i said heavy duty fun and experimentation.

Besides, if i fry my P+L, i'll change it out along with the conrod and the bearings at the same time.

LOL, i don't look at it like that bartek.

Way i see it, Each rig will be different , as in 1 Stocker, 1 lightly modifed and 1 heavily modified rig. Besides, it gives me something different to run as well. I get bored running the same rig all the time.
