Most fasteners get mentioned in the manual and the screw bags are listed on the last pages.

Right, but those screw bags are not from the Dyna Storm so you need to know which other models to check. I suppose if you have a large collection of manuals it is not hard to look.

In this case I searched for available screw bags on eBay and elsewhere, and checked against the manuals for the content. I also did the reverse, looked in manuals for screw bags with correct screws, then googled for the part numbers.

It took a lot of time to find these screws...

Sure! It's Lars... :y:

I understand now. So the best way to find out which screws are in which bags is "Be Lars". Or, failing that, "Know Lars". Good advice.

Its not like I remember the database content by heart or anything, but I might be a little obsessed when it comes to details... ;)
And I have extensive training in googling!

Googling is my friend too, but pb ruined many pictures that are no longer to be seen.
So it makes it really hard sometimes.

Back on track with this restoration/build...

Step 30 Motor.
As you may have seen, I've decided to put the 53122 Acto-Power Off Roader 2WD in this 58116 Dyna Storm. There was no motor in the kit, but Tamiya recommended in the manual the new, at the time, pink Acto-Power.



Step 31 Gerbox cover:




Cover on with the Tamiya MDC decal.

Hey buddy, Did you end up with a spare one of these you would be willing to part with? :)

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