Thanks!

Mostly Tamiya's..

Some are 3Racing - BUMPER, batt holder, M3 countersunk washers and 6mm wheel hubs.
Yeah Racing - motor plate and bearings.
Tech Racing - front and rear suspension arms and front upper links.

After I'm done with it, I'm gonna get another one for racing..

Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know we are racing Mini's based off of TCS rules here in New Mexico! Come and check us out! http://www.rcriot.com/

The class is just starting out, right now we've got about 8 people with Mini's, but with the holidays upon us it's hard to get everyone to the track at the same time! It's only a matter of time before this class explode!

If your into a friendly atmosphere, and some awesome racing come on out!

Jay

I was going to get one of those bumpers to try, but they are not legal for racing in australia and one of the guys told me they snap easily and to get some foam and cable tie it to the front.

Not sure which bumpers are good or not....

Martin,

I've been using the 3 racing bumper on my M05 all year and at all the club challenge rounds. On the bottom two mounting screws put one or two washers between the chassis and the bumper. Angles the bumper slightly upwards and less likely to drag or catch. A tip from Fish and seems to work.

Hmm, might be legal at Club Challenge, but very definitely NOT legal under the 'normal' Australian Mini rules. Marty is correct.

Default How to buy a used excavator

How to buy a used excavator
 
The escalating cost of a new excavator has forced many people into considering the purchase of a used excavator. But the road to a successful purchase is fraught with danger. The followling methods can save you from a lot of grief when buying a used excavator.

First ,assess the needs . Before the farmer even begins looking at used excavator brands, he should know what he is looking for. He should carefully examine his needs, so that the brand he buys will be able to function as required, both in terms of tasks and power output. For example ,the Hitachi excavator and komatsu excavator which the japanese brand can do jod faster and oil saving, and the cat excavator which the American brand is powerful and have a good reputation in the world but a little oil wast .
Second ,assess the excavator. you should know the worth of the excavator through is apperance and all the parts of it ,such as Lubricants, Seals and bearings, Coolant , Hydraulic systems and so on.

In a word , you should be careful when you buy the used excavator.

If it's anything like my kit, the plastic steering crank will need the hole opening out a little at the tight spot. I used a few spins of a body reamer.
