    RE: Fist time build

    The easy answer between the difference of a .21 vs a .28 is engine displacement size. A .28 size engine has a larger piston and theoretically will produce more power. The question you need to ask...

    RE: Fist time build

    Why buy on the web? Just go down to your local hardware store and pick up what you need there. Since HB is a sister company of HPI, I'd imagine you would need metric tools, but I don't know for sure....

    RE: Fist time build

    Don't forget to put down a mat or towel to build on so you don't lose any small parts. Also, this might seem stupid to add, but cut open the bags, don't rip them open. I almost lost a grub screw like...

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Come to Cali and you can run with my 3 buds and myself on my backyard track. We all have NOWs so you would fit right in. The only probs we have had have been dogbone and axle-shaft cup bends but we...

    RE: Blue Loctite

    Get an old allen wrench or screwdriver (whichever is applicable) you don't care about and heat it up nice and hot. Once hot use it to loosen the locked screw- should work, loctite is heat solvent....

    RE: 1/18th scale track.

    Nice, I wish I had that much room when I made my track. I could have made a 8th scale track to run my 8ight with that kinda room. Keep up the good work.

    RE: My first paint- Losi 8ight

    Thanks, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Besides, we are a few continents away from each other so I don't think it will be a problem :D Post the results up when you are finished.

    RE: New Buggy Where to Start !!

    +1 on getting a pro kit over a RTR. A: You get a better value for your hard earned cash, most include hop-ups and better quality parts. B: You learn it's ins and outs as you build it which makes...

    RE: Raze for first Nitro?

    I agree with 46u, I'd go with a hyper 7 TQ rtr. for $299.99. Great buggy at a great price. The "get what your LHS stocks" is always valid advice, although. Good luck.

    LOL, yeah, I think I learned that the hard way. I also could have either masked off the lighter color or laid down some white over the yellow before I put the dark green on. Still turned out fine...

    RE: My first paint- Losi 8ight

    I haven't had time yet to fully use up a pack (I use two 2s 5000mAH TrueRC LiPOs) as yesterday was my first time out on dirt. We have no pro tracks where I live, so I run at a play track out near the...

    RE: Frustrated with Bishop Power Products

    4 months before you received your order?! That is beyond unacceptable. That's a guaranteed stop payment call to the credit card company. There is no reason good enough to explain that kind of lag...

    Poll: RE: the coolest rc body ***EVER***VIDEO***

    You win the award for the most original and hilarious body I've ever seen. Kudos. The fact that it's functional to boot is the icing on the cake. Great job.

    RE: Two-tone question

    Liquid mask is best, failing that, Frog masking tape is a better choice over the 3M (blue) stuff. I have used both and find the Frog tape bleeds far less.

    RE: My first paint- Losi 8ight

    Thanks, Dale. Yeah, I need to change the minimum drive setting or the throttle input from linear to exponential on the ESC. Although it's cool to see I don't want wheel-spin off the line.

    My first paint- Losi 8ight

    Ok, here are some pics of my virgin 8ight. Take it easy on me, this is my first paint-job. It was done with rattle cans and Frog masking tape. I wanted to go old school-and to me, there is nothing...
