Took the Vekta for its first bash today..........headed down to Reedy reserve with some mates and caught up with Steve (Ozzy) which was great......had been way too long lol

Vekta started off well and was going good for the first 5 minutes, then a centre drive shaft pin came out but I think I missed loctite on that grub screw so kinda my own fault. I got to work and put a new pin in with the helping hand of Steve and got it done but them problems come in 3's has spark plug issues and once that was sorted was about to go for round 2 then pull start shit itself so that was it

Can't wait to get it fixed and going again. Here's a couple of pics, thanks to Steve thumbsup

What mods have you done to this so far? did you get it fully assembled? or did you do the assembly yourself?
I've got a Vekta still in the box that I'll have to do something with!

lol... you're doing much better than me... but yours looks awesome!
I got mine already assembled, I'm pretty lazy at the best of times and I thought if it was ready to go, then I'd have no excuses not to play with it!
I think all the assembly mine needs is to just fit the exhaust I got for it...

But I've had mine now for a good 6 months at least and I haven't even managed to unpack it yet...

And sadly...on top of that is the drone I thought i'd be really into back then that I also never bothered to unpack and play with....sheesh, i need to get out more

i didn't realise that you had an entire build thread here!
The amount of work you've put into just assembling that is insane!
There's no way I could have gone through that!

At one stage I bought a kyosho ke 10 in kit form and I really buggered the assembly up and had so many spare parts left over it wasn't funny..
I ended up giving that one to my cousin as by the end of the build I was frustrated and had lost all interest in even trying to fix it.

That my friend takes some serious patience to build that entire kit!
What sort of mods are you planning for it?
