    RE: Pics of your academy ride

    I wanted to drop you a line and let you know about the new motors that Team1rc.com sent me!! I drive for Team Academys 1/10 Touring Class. Whether your off road or on road like myself, try one of these babies in your ride!!!
    When I first open the box to my amazement, they come with motor boxes for storage. I took the lable off the original package and placed on the motor box / container for ID of each motor. I then began to inspect the motors, WOW! they have some mags in them thats forsure, very strong. I also looked at the brush hoods as I know they ( Team1rc.com ) said they know alot about motors. What nice alignement for the brushes and the springs?? Very First class, all the way. As I was looking at the package once again, I see they inclose a document of what the motor dyno'd and how it truely performs. I ran the numbers in my head and trusted these guys 100% as all the number on the sheet were not so over rated as I have seen from some companies out there. However,, they are I would say team quality motors and with my driving?? These motors will be my motor of choice from this day on. By getting these from them as one of my new sponsors per say,,,,It eliminates me from messing with brushes, dyno, and what?? it saves me time so I cna drive my car more!!
    I installed the one of the two lastnight. The only thing I can say is visit these guys. I am so gald I did and the quality and service once again so similar to Academy, you wont be sorry!!!

    RE: Pics of your academy ride

    Here that simple mod to adjust the front oneway. I do know, that most people do lock up front oneways as this is the way they are used, BUT?? I will say, there will come a time or two you'll need to loosen it slightly, and I do use the term specifically as it doesnt take much to loosen a oneway.

    The pic below with the white circle on the dif? That is the mod. I inserted a plastic insert with a small lip on the outside top of the insert. I did this to make it look like a factory install or mod. This white plastic flange insert is used for small cable and can be found at hardware stores. If you look close enough you will acatully see the set / grub screws. I have honestly used this modification now about 4-5 times. It is currently set for my local track at about 90% tight. I am guessing however, adjusting a dif is just one of those things you'll soon get the feel of to adjust it properly.[X(]

    The second and last pic is to show the length I have added to the upper rods get a better tire wear. I had issues with the wear before. If anyone needs I can drop them the spec measurements on my upper rods. I had to loose my purple hpi however due to lack of lenght. I am insearch this weekend also to up grade all screws and rods to titanium. I found such screws and rods at a location that is non rc related!!

    Im now running the 27 and 32 rubber tires,,,,GOOD BYE FOAMS!!! I'll miss ya[&o] Currently 32 all around.

    RE: Pics of your academy ride




    srry about the size. here is my academy sb pro. it finally got to race it the other weekend. nobody drives 4wd here so i never get to race it. but i finally got to race it in the brushless open at the rcmonster bash. unfortunatly it didn't last too long against the huge all aluminum mt's . it was still fun though.
    R/C keeps me off of drugs because after the rc there is no money left for drugs.

    RE: Pics of your academy ride

    agreed. very nicely done.

    here are some pics of my newest ride... str-4 pro v1. I never really planned on getting one, since I don't usually race onroad, but I got a great deal on this as a roller, and couldn't resist putting in a new mamba max / Nemisis blue combo. Its very fast and handles extremely well. I may have to convert over to onroad because of this thing. Its really a blast to drive.

    NAKED?!

    special thanks to darthballs for the wiring ideas. I wasn't really sure how to keep it neat. If you're curious, I did the paint in the garage at home. I used a spray on mask an a very sharp exacto knife. More photos coming soon....
