i have two (one for me and one for my old man).
Mine has 30cc race ported engine. But - the radio is cactus in it.
My old mans - needs new engine and the diff in his is cactus. I stole the radio gear out of his - and now that's busted in mine.
We aren't very gentle on them... which is why we have broken soo much stuff.
We are moving soon - so they are just standing around at the moment.
As matty said - hit the beaches... these things go hard in the sand.

it is the best thing i have spent money on.....
i have upgraded a lot of parts on it and also worked on the starter motor putting wire filter on the slots so i dont get rocks and grass stuffing the starter motor.
i broke the main drive gear today snapping a bolt in the clutch bell housing thats ok cause im going to buy a new clutch (not a stock one) for a quicker take off.
there is $700 worth of alloy parts to make it a jumping beast i will get when i brake more parts it jumps good enough already.
the beach is the best spot to bash with the sand paddles but i also like parks just to see the peoples faces when i explain it almost weighs 10Kg and is powerd by a 23cc wipper snipper motor the price tag is what makes ther jaw drop $1600 for a toy realy ( it is if your not racing it ) i have it just to jump and bash around so i need to mod it so it will not break if this is possibale

i couldnt agree more-
I love them... i really need to look at getting mine fixed. The TJ is a big resource hog at the moment - quadratec just made a nice $600 out of me as well as all the other bits i have been doing to my TJ.
when both of mine were going, my old man was watching mine pull "wheelie's" (yes.. off the line, it pulls wheelies) and forgot to take his finger off the trigger... drove his straight into a tree.
A $15 bearing from the local shop, and a new rim / tyre and she was right to go again, no other damage. They are hard as nails -

Every cent spent on these toys is less dollars to spend on the Jeeps.

Atleast you dont have to worry about track closures and adr compliance.
This thread is useless without pics by the way.:wink:
