Thank you Carl, Jake.

Might add a bit more sludgy dust mixture to the chassis and wheels. Going to live with it for now.

Like the two tone camo, very good job. I wonder if HL will do a T55 one day, my guess is yes.

Don’t you just love the T55 in all it’s variants.

I just wonder what is the sandy colour you’ve in the “splash of colour” images......

Many thanks......

I’m sure it was Tamiya yellow but I’ll look for the code.

Been waiting for some parts from Stian (maxmekker) as he gets some nice stuff from dklm and 3d printed parts.

Gearbox mount in - they now sit level and strong.

Hull plate in place, no twisting or flexing from the lower hull now. Quite light too.

Henntec stiffen the front, no twisting here either.

Very worthwhile upgrades as it has nothing to stop flex otherwise.

3d printed speaker box custom fits the hull shape and will take a visaton fr7s for my elmod fusion pro.

Hi AD LAV,

Does Stian have a web site one would be able to order these parts from?

Best regards,

Rudy
