  1. What is this thing? 
    #76
    It says Nikko Brat all over it, but it doesn't look like the Nikko Brat that google turns up. Can anyone provide insight on this thing?

    judging from the stickers and the first kit I assembled, the car should look like this

    also let me know details of photos you want to see...

    like do you want individual photos of each "part section" or just lay all the parts in the table and click away.

    Hey Jason,

    It's Jason (Bender) from the Tamiya club here

    I use Bender on most forums except this one.
    Didn't you get a new belt in the No.1 conversion kit? Mine came with a new belt so I assume you are supposed to use that.

    I don't know if I've already posted this, but here is a great looking Brat

    HERE!

    Yep!

    If it helps, the belt with the Brat is made by bridgestone and it's marked 288mxl4.8 - which means mxl type, 4.8mm wide.

    I'm not sure if 288 is the number of teeth or the "pitch" of the belt. There is also another marking "209J" which may or may not represent the number of teeth.

    Small parts and Bearings in Brisbane often have these mxl belts and pulleys (handy for other cars with mxl belts like Bulldogs, Zerdas, Cats etc) but I couldn't find the right one.

    Here's the link: Small Parts and Bearings

    Gates is the main manufacturer of these (and other) belts in the world - not sure where you'd find a stockist of them in Qld though. I have a Gates catalogue but I can't post them as the file size is too big

    The Brat conversion kit 2 was never sold in Singapore. What we did in Singapore was to buy the conversion kit 2 parts seperately. They were the Upworks motor, white nylon suspension arms, gold universal joints, upgraded purple shocks and the harden gear diffs set. I never remember that the Brat had ball diff upgrades, all the Nikko team drivers had special parts that was not available to public..those parts were the white nylon front and rear gear boxes, and nylon shock tower mounts to mount the carbon graphite front and rear shock towers..with the carbon fibre shock towers, the Brat's suspension geometry was totally changed..it became a lot more adjustable and had the looks of the more conventional buggies of that time like the Top Force, Lazer ZXR, Yokomo YZ10..etc..In 1992 Nikko had a prototype called the Brat 2. It looked very much like the Yokomo YZ10...it ran a couple of races in Japan, but sadly after a short while, the japanese Nikko team gave up racing completely....i've had buggies from Yokomo, Kyosho, Schumacher and Tamiya at that time and the Nikko Brat was one of my favourite buggies..it was so simple to set up and the car's handling was superb. The only problem was that the car's ride height is very low, so it's chassis often slap pretty hard after landing from a big jump...but overall it's a great buggy...

    Im sorry to dissapoint you but what you there is not the Brat we are talking about.Perhaps Nikko wanted to attch that name to your car because of the competition model the team drivers used to race?? Who knows?
