Nope, it"s an FTX Blaze Ball Diff

Put the axle back on and tried it today, it all works well. Here's a video. Just running the front axle to see if it will "stand alone" (chassis weighs in at 2.7kg (6lbs)



Might do the rear axle too now

[quote=MrMunster;862931]Well I have been on holiday but am back and I have managed to get a bit more work done in the chassis dept

Padre, sorry crazy translator doesn't do his job well! hope this will help....

"made a start on the chassis mods now" = I have started to change the chassis to look more like LR

"Much more to go but within the confines of the Bruiser chassis, it's looking a bit more Land Roverish" = more work to do but as this is a Tamiya Bruiser chassis I am happy it is looking more like a LR chassis.


Thank you very much, so is better understood.

I like everything new, but the issue diff is simply amazing.
I figured it would not be possible to find spare even existed. I was wrong.
It's really interesting for this type of car realistically, on the contrary to what is necessary to have fun with r / c 4X4.
And besides adjustable!
Maybe do some more question on the subject in the future, I am very interested.
A greeting.

Don't get excited this is not much of an update!! Just some new pictures

I have been way to busy to work on this truck lately and with an impending house move in the new year I won't get much chance until after the move either

The only update is the new number plate mount, the grill is now fixed in place and the holes which were in the wrong place have now been sorted out, so I took it outside and snapped some new pic's....











Well thats it until after I move....... I'll be back

It is - it is just for your best.

Am I excused by default? My Superduty gets ten miles to the gallon, so with simple math, it would cost me about $4000 in gas! The key though is that I offered...and I have a great history of "good friends" who conveniently were out of town when I had to move. Truth is...I love helping friends move. There's a great tracy lawrence song..."you find out who your friends are". Check it out.

Lol, I reckon you're excused and as they say it's the thought that counts! I know what you mean about those "good friends" too, I've had some of those. Should have it covered this time, even my father in law is lending a hand......he lives in France and coming 739 miles to help

Cool thing is... We get a proper hobby room when we move! I have to share it but hey, better than a kick in the (insert your own expletive) D)

Yep...I know it's been a long time, a long, long, time! But I did warn you

Well I had the usual Xmas build break and then we moved house, and what fun that was squeezing the contents of a double garage into a single garage was a mission in it's own right! So what with sorting the house, having many guests, working on 1:1 cars, working and the like, it took far too long to actually sit down and get some building done.

Progress was still slow even when I did manage to do anything so held off on an update until I had something more tangible to show you than "today I glued two bits of styrene together" or "today I filed some styrene" etc.

So what have I been doing? fiddly bits that's what Windscreen wipers and door mirrors to be exact, not much I know but these are the two details on most models (and on Landys in particular) that are (to me) a bit of a let down in the realism dept so, as I need to make them anyway, thought I would try to do a decent job of them



Wipers started with a picture of my wiper blade



First attempt was with styrene



They kept breaking so went to brass





Added a styrene blade



Paint



And door mirrors in styrene (one piece mirrored)











I guess you would like to see them fitted?

OK then











Hope you like 'em

Fingers crossed I will be able to get more done, and quicker than this update took
