ORIGINAL: alippman

i believe the title of the forum is ''and midnight pumpkin'' just finished this puppy. can't decide if i want the big midnight pumpkin graphic stickers on the doors. and i didnt paint the body. i think its dope as is. here it is with my hornet. can't wait to drive them together! (and test the wheelie bar!)

Hate to say it, but I gotta sell the Pumpkin. I have never had the chance to run it more than one time, it is pristine. its not painted as I thought that looked better, and the decals are on except the midnight pumpkin logo on the doors. i have the original box, all original decals remaining and manuals, a remote, a battery, a charger, etc. i will give you all extra pieces from the kit.

its a great truggie i just barely even run the hornet these days and got a pay cut which is hurting a lot.

i paid about $275 for the whole thing not built.

i would guess buying it pre-built, though perhaps not by Tamiya, with all the accesories and original parts and only run once, its gotta be worth $175-200.

i know Tamiya adds a bunch for pre-built. I am in SW Connecticut and I know a few of you are in NW Conn or thereabouts. You can come on a weekend and pick it up.

Desperate times people...

help me and have fun in doing so! if you cant see the fwd and the pics let me know and i will repost.

My refurbed lLunchbox as it stands at the moment.

I've also gone the mystery machine route. Still waiting for headlights to arrive and then possibly thinking about replacing the stock shocks with some oil filled ones.

At the moment it has a 15t Motor with 12t Fwd/Rev ESC and ballraces, so goes quite well.....but there is always room for improvement!!

Man there is some sick LB's AND MP's on here. I just ordered a non metallic LB for running and I'll keep my metallic as a runner but, not bash it. I kind of want to go Yellow and have one like the first one I ever owned. But would also like a wild color scheme for the new one???

double wishbone frot suspension upgrade means no more excesive camber and toe on suspesion compesion..

also a slighty wider track for better handling and a tighter turning circle

i got a bit carried away and decided a complee rebuild was needed.. i used as many different parts as i could to make the new car

PROJECT FERRAGO

mad bull gearbox
fighter buggy friction dampers
lunchbox springs, body and chassis
fx10 front arms
m-04 servo mounts

a lot of cutting and trimming of a long list of parts to make others fit.. the new suspension means a longer wheel base and a lot wider!! a faster gear ratio and 15t motor could be fun.
front suspesion is awesome... no more camber issues and a tighter turn.. i have used madbull uprights.

that looks good, but it looks like you need to move the body back a couple mm's

Got another Lunchbox for you!

This is my new re-released Lunchbox fully blinged out in Scooby Doo 'Mystery Machine' colours!



Took me ages, and an awful lot of time with some very fiddly masking to get those green panels funky curvy edges all sorted out..........think it was worth it though.

This is an old thread, but I needed a good place to post my "Death Proof" Lunchbox Pics. Of course the idea was taken from the 2007 Quentin Tarantino movie.
