Today I took my Twin Hammers to the local skate park. It gets some nice height on the jump there, much more than my other cars.
Here is a highlight clip from the session. I have much more video footage also including my micro short course truck to upload later.

Twin Hammers Rock Crawler / Buggy first drive

A short video of my first drive with the Twin Hammers Rock Crawler / Buggy.

I was not going full throttle as I was only driving with one hand and this was towards the end of the battery.

Its great fun to drive and I was surprised at how often it wheelies from a standstill. It is very easy to tip over at speed and therefore requires much more brake control than most vehicles.

Phoenix BX gear mesh fixed and ball-raced

Last time I was out with this buggy a gear stripped and I later found out the gears were not meshing properly. When my ball-race bearings arrived I took the car apart upgraded it and re-meshed the gears. Its now running at a decent pace and it great fun to drive!

I was filming in one hand and steering with the other which is way the steering’s a little crazy.

Ball Joint Steering Upgrade for Silvia (TT01 Chassis)

Today I fitted a part aluminium ball joint steering upgrade to my TT01 chassis. This replaces the stock steering track which is all plastic and screwed in. This upgrade has improved steering control which is especially handy when drifting.

The upgrade item is a 3Racing Steering Track. It says it is for the TT01E but comes with the parts also needed to fit it to the TT01.
