    well, as some of u might know i broke the screw on my servo[xx(] so off to my LHS i was, so i asked the guy for ascrew, he went looking...looking...after 5 mins of searching he came back to me with this packge of the gears and the screw where in. i was like joepie, but he told me..: this is the ponly thing ive got, its 28 euro, and the screw is in there...:(well u can imagne im not gonna pay 28 euro for f*king screw. Because it was a Hitec servo(american) it had an american screw, with american measurements, which we dont use in europe...SO when we left(i only bought some threadlock aka Lock tite) a friend of mine said...hey i might have a screw like that at home. so he took the screw home. next day back at school he came running at me and said: TIM TIM, loooook!!!! and he gave me 3 screws of the same thickness as the 1 i bent :D:D:D they all had different lengts so i could see which 1 was best [8D]i was so happy, so today i took my tnx out for a spin :) it was pretty cool :)

    well if its gonna be dry this weekend ill make alittle movie so u can see my TNX in action:)

    Cheers Tim

    I was. amn it liked it, i made some little jumps from some tiles that where standing upward and the shocks seemed to better. but when i dropped the car(just pick it up and drop it) it bottomed out, but maybe when making a jump the forward power will compensate or something...not sure, ill have to see that tomorrow, after my tests :D

    little update:

    [​IMG]

    so here a mean looking picture of my new TNX :) so ive had some time to drive it now, and to be honest, i ight wanna take off the heavy tires, they are alot of fun, but the small tires just make it a little faster. i like the steering servo :) still havent recived the charger for my hump pack..so thats till waiting to get charged in my toolbox. there is 1 problem i run acroos now....wit the big tires...its almost impossible to get the car straight off the ramp [xx(] the ramp is just too small :( this is also a reason why i may put the stock tires back on, i cant go off the jump full speed coz its so wide, its almost impossible to let it go off the ramp straight :S:S i will get a BB for sure, and then theser tires will be THA BOMB ! well if any1 has some questions just go ahead. I put some of the excess tire foam on the roll bar, and ziptyed that on. works prety good, doesnt damage the body as much.

    i thought id continue over here :D since this was MY topic wheeeeeeeeee


    guess what? i got my stuff in early this mornin [8D]

    what it SHOULD have contained was:

    HPI Dirt Bonz
    RPM Titan stablemaxx rims
    Trinity 3 stage foams
    HPI Humppack
    Venomen Temp. Monitor
    Tamiya screws for attach starter system to backplate

    What i got was:

    HPI dirt bonz
    RPM Titan stablemaxx rims
    Trinity foams
    Tamiya Screws
    Some bodyclips(for free)
    2 tower magazines(2 sets of the same stuff...)
    and some tool to cut and stirp wires with

    So i missed the humppack and the temp. monitor...that wasnt weird..COZ THE BOX WAS RIPPED HALF OPEN!! so i mailed tower straight away and got an email this evenin which said they would resend it :D what a company wouldnt ya say?!

    anyways enuf of me brabbling here are some pics....

    the foams are ALOT better then the ones that came with the tires...altho i had 2 glue them AND they were a big pain in the rear to get into the tires....i also ducttaped the inside of the tires against ballooning, altho the foams should have eliminated that.

    i also got my tnx up and running for half a tank but the pullstart seized on me once more....pullstarts and bearing dont like me at all....can some1 teach me how to get those things ready for long term use [B)]

    anyways post whateva u think....and ask whateva u wanna ask...
