The iroks probably crawl really well. I don't think they would fit very well with the stock body though. I think I need something a little smaller...

I just picked up a set of the Rock Stompers the other day. They fit really well and look great. Haven't tried climbing with them yet as I'm still in the process of building the truck.

Here's a couple shots of my TF2 with the Rock Stompers. Sorry for the poor photo quality. Had to take these with my Ipod.

If you're running any kind of lift, and I think you are, there's no problem for trail running. Climbing isn't so hot, but I think that's inherent to the leaf spring set up. This is a heavy little truck. I tried to comp with this in a class 2...and had my a$$ handed to me. Everyone said to run it in a class 1....it got retired to trail running. It's real nice for that, and a lot of fun

Yeah well...... You're ugly in 1.1 but in 1/10 scale you are still ugly.

Haha. I thought it was funny. I can see tires are a sensitive topic. I'm gonna wear the stock ones down before I decide on new tires. And keep an eye out in the for sale section.

Evan, don't take it so seriously, IT WAS A JOKE!!! If you wouldn't get so sensitive and look at the end of my sentence there is a laughing my axx off symbol. I don't try to start chit with anyone but I do try to add a little bit of humor to these crazy forums where everyone is being so serious. If everyone liked the same tires then they wouldn't have to make a hundred different styles. So have an awesome day yourself

I got a 6ch Tx in order to get the 3racing winch working from the controller. I am using a hacked gt3b. Has anyone tried to set this up before?

Tried to get the winch going on the new 6 ch tx. Lost my model memory...Time to put the GoPro in the cab!

Grrr. I just got the newer firmware on my hacked flysky gt3b and a new 6ch tx in order to run my 3racing winch from my controller. The problem is, I can only get the winch to go in one direction. I need to reverse the channel in order to go the other direction...every time. Which kind of defeats the purpose. I guess I need to get a different winch controller right? Or is there something else I can do on the gt3b to make it work???

I don't get how anyone puts the vacu-formed dinky top onto their truck securely.

Here's my backward solution:

Bent copper Rollbar with padding


I found this on the confrence room table at work during a long meeting and it got me thinking...


The Joywrex patented painting method (paint pen)


Shoegoo for flex


And Whalah! Turd polished.

Really?

I took some 1/4" balsa and shoe-goo-ed it around the inside base of the cap. This served two purposes for me. One it reinforced the cap, as Dinky instructs, two it gave me something to put double-sided trim tape onto. Rolled the truck a few times with it and it never came off until I removed it.

That's a good idea. Where does dinky say to do that?

They don't say how to but they do say the cap will need reinforcement.

We've done most of the difficult work to give you the shape and design, and leave it up to you to finish as elaborate as you like. Installation will require trimming, as well as additional styrene or abs work. Allowing you to decide how you would like to attach them.

Building additional under-structure for strength and durability is highly recommended, and is NOT included.

Your extra leaf springs should be UNDER the main leaf spring, not OVER.

You're right...usually. on the TF2's running one of them over the main leaf will help reduce axle-wrap.

Hmm. I will flip them around and see if I can tell the difference.

I did some CAD of some scale items and did a test 3d print with the lower resolution printer to determine the correct size. I will have to send it out to get it printed in a higher res material if I actually want to do this. These guys have made stuff for me before that is pretty nice.
