It brings me such joy that I've not only found a huge clan of nostalgic mountain bikers with this forum, but that many of you also had the childhood bug with Tamiya and Kyosho. My brother built a Kyosho (can't recall which one), but I could never save up enough for one. But always drooled over the Rothman 959. Such a killer machine....
Just built this a couple of weeks ago. My first build and quite chuffed how well I managed to follow the excellent instructions. Kit comes with adjustable suspension oil shocks and full bearings so not much else needed, but liPo cell and brushless motor added for good measure.
The boy managed to launch it into a wall and bend the front rods one side, then the next day a summersault into a tree in the park sorted out the other side.
one of the trailing arms of the front suspension layout is knackered and the tyres are cracked as well. As I know that parts for WW I are almost unobtainable, I was thinking of having the trailing arms 3 D printed. Do you know if this had been done and I can borrow the files for printing them, or how is offering this ?
