I have all the parts you need and might even have new in package parts. I am in Tokyo for the week, but will be back at the Awase track Saturday around 10.

If for some reason that doesn't work out, I have a loaner bmax2 2wd buggy you can play with.

You don't want the 1/8 one, it is to big and boring. We all have 1/10 scale. I believe greg has a 1/10 exceed, and it shares parts from the axial ax10.

I wont be able to make it to the track on Saturday, have the daughters birthday party then, possibly on sunday. I have decided to shelf the T3 though, browsing for a 22 buggy or short course. The rules for everything is mainly 13.5T motors and 2wd for the most part correct? In the meantime if i could use a loaner that would be great!

Not sure what I think of the tires yet as they seamed to get better the more I ran. May have to work on the foams tho as not much in the way of side wall strength. But in the end I snapped a lower front link rod end so I am going home.
In other news my Robinson racing slipper clutch turned up so I will try to fit that tonight ready for sat.

Going to try and make it out on Saturday also. Tekno SCT is ready to go. Got my 22 in yesterday and need to go through it. Ordered some parts for it and hopefully it gets here so I can rebuild it.

OK.......... I think the Blitz is ready, the gen3 Robinson racing slipper clutch will not fit the brown aluminum ESE motor plate but with a little help from a drill and some sand paper its gone from a interference fit to a free to move not rubbing or fowling in anyway fit.

If anyone can help me with some wheels / tires to use on Sat
(until my new ones show up) i would be very grateful.[IMG][/IMG]
PS. i got the Bluethooth thingy coz i think its cool.

Looks like I'll actually have some time to get out and play, just need a place to do it now 8.2 and SX3 are just collecting dust (rest are restoration projects). Have a Dingo on the way as well and if there is a place to run 1/10 2wd, I'll grab another buggy/ST to join in.
