    I'm trying to do this now.

    Does anyone know a good video to follow for this process?

    I will say that Diesel is a bit of a nightmare until you get it downpat (at which point it becomes something of a delightful toil)

    Ironically I did post a video of how to get him from truck to bot mode but not the reverse lol.

    I guess you could play my video in reverse and mute the audio? haha

    Diesel's transformation into Menasor was frustrating to the point where I have no desire to ever take him out of combined mode. But that's ok, I prefer it that way.

    This ^^

    I've transformed him so many times now that he's no more difficult for me than a TFC figure. :lol

    I just recently messed with them after getting the upgrade kit....Yeah, Diesel is ridiculous complicated. After seeing how certain things move and such, I got it pretty easy with the help of the instructions, but going in blind, there'd be no way I'd get this guy's stuff down.

    So, I ran up against bills this month and need to sell my Intimidator, fast. He's 1st gen, 3/5ths official. Wildrider and Deadend I jury rigged the RotF cars in place. I thought I had boxes for Breakdown and Dragstrip, but apparently not? If you're interested, just PM me, there's some other specifics that I don't want to get into here. I like him, but I never mess with him and honestly he's probably the easiest of the weight to jettison. :(

    What upgrade lots are available for this set? Did the replacement dragstrip windshield ever get released?

    Don't look up quarter mile kit. Look up "dmy" and you should find it. Dmy doesn't have too many search results...

    There's a whole big thread here at TFW dedicated just to the DMY/quarter mile upgrade kit---all the info/pics you could need: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...on-kit-fansproject-m3-menasor-stunticons.html

    Though mainly just the last couple of pages have the finished product reviews/pics. Most of the early stuff is the story of getting it into production etc. (which is still an interesting read, if you're curious on how some TFW board members went from "ideas and Shapeways prints" to "mass produced in molded plastic" parts)

    Well, I tried everything in it. Honestly, the stuff to make Downforce look more like G1 Dragstrip didn't really do it for me, so I wound up putting most of it back in the box. Likewise, the new wrists were still ball joints and didn't seem to support his weapons any better, so they went back in the box along with the forearm filler for not-Dead End.

    On the flip side, though, the new ankle ratchets were a noticeable improvement, the elbow fillers are better than the Shadow Fisher ones, the not-Menasor ab filler is the single biggest improvement you can make on the toy, the back filler for Diesel's bot mode is also quite good, and although it's a small touch I think the spoiler on not-Breakdown is a huge improvement.

    If you're going to use the parts for Downforce, then it's definitely worth it. If you're not, it's on the expensive side but I'm still glad I got it.
