    Thanks Chris, I think the Hyper 7 will be great just to bash with. I'm happy to hear I will get some speed with it, though I know it probably won't keep up with my Brushless cars. I'm really...
  2. Ofna Comparisons: TQ Sport vs. Hyper SS

    Recently, I've been looking into getting a Nitro to offset all the Electric power. I need nothing extravagant, just something that I can bash around with on the weekends. That brought me to The...

    I acquired this plane from a family member who had thrown the wing away after it was busted. I took the plane, because I figured I could just order a new one, and it would have the parts already in...

    Thanks buzz, and eagle for the quick responses. I like that idea of using two separate servos. The pictures are a great visual for me too.

    My only question now is, where can I find those red...

    Tamiya Hornet Shocks

    Well, I am rebuilding my Hornet after a Summer of running it and I ran into a big problem. After re-filling the rear shocks, I set them on a shock stand, and went inside to do something. Not long...

    RE: Are your rc vehicles insured?

    That's pretty interesting. I myself actually never considered insuring my cars, or any other RC, until I started flying over the Summer. Yes, TornadoGuy tried flying, though I am not too good at it...

    RE: Traxxas Critics opinion please

    To start off with, I want to say I am not a Traxxas hater. There vehicles are tough, and I have to say, mine takes a lot of beating with few scratches to show for it. What I do think Traxxas should...

    RE: tamiya 2011 blitzer beetle

    That Blitzer Beetle is a nice kit. I haven't paid it the attention it deserves because there are so many other kits like the TA-06 that take over the magazines/articles. I have heard mixed reviews...
  11. RE: What RC-related plans do you have this weekend?

    Dust off and build my Tamiya kit. Haven't had much time to touch it, and I have a lot left to work on.

    That, and maybe test and tinker with some other cars.

    RE: Volcano exp brushless buggy

    Sounds to me like it's a battery issue. If the battery isn't fully charged the car will accelerate intermittently. I experienced this with my Tornado before, after I let the battery sit for some...

  14. RE: Coming soon, the next project... here's a teaser. :)

    +1 on the Corrosion X. I too had badly rusted shafts on one of my vehicles, and the Corrosion X, along with some steel wool fixed the problem. The sprayed areas will be shielded from future rusting...

  16. RE: Tamiya Nissan R91CP Build Thread (High Resolution Pictures)

    Thanks for the responses. I would love to run mine at the track, but then again, I'd need a new body. The original is way to much work, and just too plain nice to run.

    After a few years of hard driving, I figured it was time to rebuild the transmission of my Rustler. I disassembled and cleaned the trans first, then I moved on to the diff. Once that was degreased...

    Nice choice for you first Tamiya kit. I am surprised that they said the melted wheel wasn't their problem. I recently built their new Mercedes 190e TT-01E kit and the result was incredible. I...

    RE: The Hornet is Ready for Spring

    The stripes look great for being painted. Stickers can be very annoying sometimes.

    The tires on the rear are grasshopper tires. I feel they work better for me on pavement.

    For the $200 price range I would look into the Traxxas Rustler XL-5. I have one, and let me tell you, it can handle off-road, rocky, and even grassy terrain. I don't know how important 4WD is to...
