Matt
I was there last week but had to run off early.

I think chargers changes to Sundays in winter anyway?

I just made it had to leave the bottle upside down for a little while and come back to finish the shocks. I don"t think it would've affected the price much if they supplied a few more cc's of oil ay?

Neo Arrived! - hopefully I'll have it finished for Sat!

Btw Matt (my friend who comes down on occasion) bought some (brand new) Zippy LiPO saddle packs for his Durango that are unfortunately too high - Is anyone interested in them before he puts it out for a wider sale?

It not a race I plan to savour the build process as this is the first new Tamiya kit I have built in ~20 years... It'll be slow and steady... and likely laborious for anyone else who has to watch

The hard part is avoiding temptation long enough to see if my son wants to help me build it tomorrow afternoon.

I might do the body tonight/tomorrow

Oh and the stick.. I mean.. boomerang is coming on Sat with my Dad.

Thumbs up Neo Scorcher!!!!

That's great news Andrew.

Yes it's not a race in build up's. I only got stuck into mine due to other r/c projects I had on for the weekend and wanted it finished to join Fox Man, Mr XW and Foggy this weekend for our first hit out with them. Hope yours is done as it would be awesome to have 5 Neo's on debut at Boondall.

You will love the build as it's easy and goes together well .

See you Sat.

It's a really awesome build/car

Thumbs up

The Neos made an impression today and good on ya Foggy for just making it out with yours to,Andrews went real well with the 13 turn in it Mad had his pretty well sorted but I had probs with temps and Foxmans destroyed a set of gears not sure why? was it the 540 can 5.5 I wonder and possibly a 3 cell who knows. Sorry Foggy and Andrew I thought I got photos of your Scorchers as well.

Mads Foxman and mine

Thumbs up Another Neo Day!!!!

What a top Day out.

The Neo's were insane. I was really happy with mine today and judging by others I wasn't the only happy Neo owner. I thrashed the hell out of mine and not one breakage. Motor temps were pretty good for how long I was thrashing it. That being said Foggy's fan set is the way to go....

A huge effort was put in by Foggy & Andrew to get theirs out today. The rest of us had them ready last week. Looks like Pat had a ball with Andrews Bigarang too.

Great to see Gary after his world tour trip.

See ya all next fortnight. More pic's are coming too.
