    RE: RC Pet Peeves

    Yep, it was in the RCU most popular. I made the mistake of reading the subject line which makes no distinction other than RC. I will refrain from commenting further now that I know it is about cars or trucks.

    Going through all the steps to figure out why your motor won't start, only to find out you did not put gas in it.



    C'mon, at least I didn't say "mill" (always wondered what the hell that one meant)

    Pretty much anything added to a car for asthetics only that didn't come stock. Lights are the worst.

    Oh no, here come the flyboys, this thread must have made it to the 'most popular' threads on the homepage of RCU.

    Get out and take your nerdy turbines with you, we prefer two dimensions in here, and even that's 2 dimensions too many for some of us! lol.

    Despite this not being the Off Topic Cars forum, I'm waiting any minute for a 'What does this have to do with model aviation? I don't even...' [&:]

    dunno my savage has more air time in then my RC heli or airplane ever had

    uhh can argue that if you are making a scaler and lights are done tastefully then its ok, but I will agree I seen some horrendous lighting jobs done on RC's. Other day I saw a RC18t with a "lighting kit" on it looked like the dude used 5mm LED's they looked so stupid it wasn't even funny, and he considered that a bonus to how much the car should cost. I have a SCX10 with lights, and an on-road when the lights are not on you can't even tell it has LED's but then again the bodies were meant for the lights.

    have you ever tried driving outdoors at dusk? Lights help with orientation when running at the end of the day. Hell, Ieven got a bunch of solar-powered walkway lights so Ican run ATNIGHT! Lights aren't just for aethstetics. Some of us a just crazy enough to want to run at night!

    Just a schmoe....

    People who use the word ''bulletproof'' to describe how strong their drive train is.
    i have actually offered to test that statement. no one has taken me up on it yet
    Hey c'mon....if we didn't use words like that, and other words that seem to annoy people, reading could get pretty boring around here! We may not be published authors or English Majors, but throwing around a few cliches is to be expected. Me an my bulletproof tranny stand by that!

    ''Nitro gas'' is my worst pet peeve. It's either nitro fuel (or FAI fuel with no nitro) or gas(oline). One or the other, but hey are NOT interchangeable.
    It's glow fuel to me, regardless of nitro or oil content. FAI fuel to me is true FAI, 80% methanol 20% castor.

    "What does it run on? Gas?"
    "No, nitro methanol"

    LOL, yes they do. And when it gets dark at 6:00, you bet i'll drive at night. I live in the country, so don't really have any neighbors to bother worth mentioning if i decide to drive nitro. I have a small flashlight mounted on the roof of a junk body for my XS. It's not as fun, but cures the itch. Usually drive on the road, it really boggles the passer bys in their cars. I like to hide behind a tree so people can't see me. Soon as they turn the corner all they see is this one little light real close to the ground moving at an incredible rate. I have the flashlight wired to the 3rd channel switch via a little brushed speed controller so i can shut it off when i zoom in the driveway.

    So in your oppinion this car anoys you because it has Light buckets, fake exhaust, mirrorsand correct badges/stickers?



    So if that anoys u does that mean u would prefer to have some thing like this, with nothing added for asthetics?



    do u feel the same about painting the body? after all its only painted for asthetics, what about scale looking wheels? are u a big fan of the closed in racing wheels?

    man if lights fitted to a rc car is the biggest rc related peeveu can think of, I would love to see ur face when u see a scale crawler for the first time.
