    RE: 3-D printer to maker RC parts.

    IMO, I think we are a few years away from being able to use 3-D printing in the RC modeling world. With time, I also believe the materials used to make these 3-D reproductions will mprove and give us...

    RE: 1st Stadium Truck Buying Decision

    I feel your pain. I went through the same thing with every VXL rc i have had. The easiest and quickest way IMO is to zip tie some weight to the front bumper. Maybe a AA battery or two. Its been a...

    RE: I Think I'm Done with My Savage X Nitro

    I think claiming that brushless RC's are extremely lame is your opinion and an opinion that many would probably disagree with. As mentioned in my post about three times this was just my opinion and...

    RE: Best type of car for grass

    I agree with some of SLAYDUDE's points. There is something about a MT that no other RC offers. It is kind of fun running an RC that requires some skill from the driver in order to keep the RC from...

    RE: Best type of car for grass

    Yes your assumptions are rite on the money. IMO, 1/8 buggies handle grass with absolutly no problems, unless the grass hasnt been cut. Even then the 1/8 buggies can go over grass, slower and with...

    RE: Looking for a new RC
