Nice RC10. I like that you're actually using the car rather than putting it on the shelf :D

Good choice to stick with NiMh, the car should like that a lot better.

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.

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: 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.
