It took some fiddling but my old Kyosho Spider EP McLaren F1 top now sits snugly of my Vorza. Just need to wait for the LIPO’s to charge to see how it works. Might need to chop a bit more for clearance. The goal was too keep it looking like the original while allowing as […]
I’ve added images of all the cars that are still in one piece – more or less: Carrera Jeep – chassis ok, body some wear, drive train – toast needs new diff gears Kyosho Spider EP – chassis worn, body new, drive train – toast needs new belts, gears, steering HPI Micro RS4 – chassis […]
The good folks at HPI have replaced my busted Vorza motor under warranty. Time to charge the battery up now we’ve got some mild days coming!

27 years of driving, or as has become the term in recent years ‘bashed’ RC cars and this is the first time I’ve ever hand any kind of driving assistance / aid system installed. Have to say it’s a bit weird. The Vorza is on road tyres in the dry, some gravel. If you drive […]
Got some e-flite G110 gyro’s (as found in the Blade SR) off ebay to experiment with in flying models. Decided this evening to have a bit of a play with one in my Vorza on the bench. This is supposed to be the same gyro the sell as the ‘drift box’ except this one has […]
