try that link.

the shell is a kamtec shell for a mardave, it is 205mm wheelbase, with a bit of carefull trimming fits an m-03 perfect, it would fit a lunchbox too but is too wide in my opinion
thanks, i'll haveto try that

Order 3 pinions and the heatsink since I plan on putting in a hotter motor soon. Hopefully it gets here quickly, tamiyausa only has one shipping option, if not I would have overnighted or 2-day [&:]

Hopefully I'm up and runnning with the LB by next weekend!

:-) Had I thought of it before, I should have ordered some spurs and planetaries as I'm sure I'll strip those. Oh well, I checked with my LHS owner and he has the spurs and planetaries in all teeth sizes so I should be fine

BTW : has anyone ordered from [link=http://www.rocousa.com]www.rocousa.com[/link] before? They are having a huge tamiya blowout, and I might just order my TT-01 drifter from there. Never heard of them before though, and I don't like being the guniea pig [&:]

Here's those pics!
I'm amazed at the articulation LB has! It's crazy!



(Sorry about the fuzzy pictures, image host had to resize cause the original resolution was almost 4000x4000 (8MP camera, gets really annoying)).

Not a special paintjob, but I wanted to keep my first Tamiya traditional, And I LOVE the box art design, looks really vintage. Figured, everone else makes a box art LB, why not me too!? One of the big lightning bolts have a little scratch on it where you cans ee the yellow paint through, and it really ticks me off. [:@] Eh, oh well [&:]

You should put some lights on it like i did. At least do the head lights it is set up prefect for it. To do the tail lights you have to drill out the rear lights thou. [:@]

Yea nick, I was planning on doing a light kit with one of those DIY light kits for cheap. But we'll see. First I wanna run the damn thing! Gotta wait on the pinion -.-. But eventually I wanna either buy another ABS shell, or maybe a lexan and do a custom paint job. But i HATE painting on lexan.

I am thinking about trying to do a hardcore light kit with a ambulance theme on the LB. Full flashign lights with a diy kit. Maybe i will try it over christmas brake when i dont have to worry about school.

Heres my kit. Not sure if you seen it yet. One of the wires in the rear came off so thats why it is not lit.

T-Maxx shocks might be too long..

Those tires should fit any standard 2.2" truck rims... that would make a good shelf queen!! Wonder how they would perform!

yeah the shocks are expensive aswell lol, way out of my price range, actually when you think about it they arent that bad,
so them tyres may be considered lol, for the traxxas rims i have had nearly a year with no tyres lol

wow...that's what i call a "death box" but that has to be the coolest themed LB yet!

tmaxx shocks won't work, they're too long. but 4 of the rustler/stampede FRONT shocks will. but even then you have to shorten the travel of the shocks you mount on the front of the LB, otherwise you'llh ave all sorts of camber.

<edit>
the tires would fit the wheels
