I tried to explain it kinda looked like huge wire loom. I'll give him a call tomorrow to see if he can get me a spool. Is it pretty expensive?

once you get it into a usable format you can do some cool stuff with windows movie maker, its easy too, i have the dvd 300 sony, nice camorder, i am happy with it, i bought it a few years ago when it was big $, now i use a cheap $100 camcorder/camera that uses a card, 256mb, east to use and easy to edit.

I believe it. I literally own a city block so I have tons of room. At this point it probably won't be until spring until i get started. I've got my hurricane ready for winter I think. The plastic-dip worked good on the servos. I'll have to try to beat that house jump when we get lots of snow. At least the landings won't be so bad.

We have an old military radar tower that's been vacant since my dad was a kid about 5 miles up the road. It has got to be at least 80 feet high. I want to take a car to the top and jump off of it. I know the car would be trash but it would make a hell of a video.

I would like to know what the car in the video that jumps the house is and what parts went flying off when he hit the ground. It seemed to run fine when he was done but in the video you can watch the stuff fall off as he lands. I'm sure there was a lot of stuff bent after that too.

I'm going with luck.. There was no way he could have seen it land. He did succeed on making a lot of people jealous though.

I'll let you know if the ntc3 bell ends up working or not. It would be a massive top speed improvement. Thanks for all the help. talk to you later...

its a volcano pro and it sounds like you need to richen the low and high needles a little, try a 1/4 turn on each and see if that helps
ok i put every thing back to factory settings but i forgot to put down when the engine is running it makes a weird sound i cant seem to find where its coming from[:@]. theirs no xhoust leaks but it soundslike its comming from the pull starter if thats possiable

I finally figured out what the problem was. if you remove the break pads, you will see a little metal cylinder. you need to remove that and then put in the break arm. It was fairly simple after i decided to open the tranny up again.

After testing the lightning on-road tranny in my bb pro and smartech on both cars it will pick up 7-10mph over the stock tranny. Not the biggest difference but at least you can beat the stock ones.

I just decided to get one when I stript out the stock one. I think it's like $1 cheaper. It's a direct swap, the only thing you will have to do is move the engine closer. I'll repost the part # in a second. I never did try it with the stock engine. I blew mine up within a couple quarts of gas. With the o.s.18cv-rx it works great but i think the o.s. has a little more power.

The part # is 02076 . You will have to take off your brake assembly and drive cups and put them on the new tranny. redcatracing.com is out of them but if you just type the # in at ebay they had about a half a dozen to choose from.
