First run with my rere brat ( only built since 2005 2006) . Funny to use out of box with bearings, but tires on grass are desappointing. Other matter, my nimh sticks are a little old and very short runtime. Maybe due to the motor had never be used???
To be continued. ;)

Found a moment to rebuild the axles for the x-factor today, Cleaned greased and shined ;) The bench grinder I installed today is the one with the wire and buff wheels fitted so I started to refurbish the link rods too.



If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Just found the last bit needed to finish my re release Brat that I have converted (mostly) back to try to replicate the 58038 original which was my very first Tamiya rc car. I got the front body mount in a lot without even realizing it at first. I also sought out a bag of metal parts for the original including the adapter plate for the 380 motor which these came with. I do have the updated rear drivetrain but you can't see it so no foul. :cheer: I even have an original hump back pack which will run the 380 for almost 10 minutes still! I run this all the time however lovingly in the driveway slowly and it would probably be the last one I would sell. LOL
