    RE: Big Changes for the RXB buggy....

    Relax, all I'm saying (and all I've been trying to say in every post) is that C-hub is not automatically junk. I'm not saying that I wouldn't buy an RC with PBS: in fact, I'd love to try one. There...

    RE: Big Changes for the RXB buggy....

    Some like beef and some like chicken. Some are just happy to eat. :D

    The PBS doesn't mean it's a stronger design. The design and execution of the steering knuckle itself determines if it's...

    RE: Big Changes for the RXB buggy....

    Well I've never owned a PBS car, but I can see how a PBS would be limited in steering angle or possibly even suspension travel by the design of a the ball joint sticking through the hub, off-axis...

    RE: Big Changes for the RXB buggy....

    PBS and the Redcat Monsoon's "kingpin" suspension (totally mislabeled, by the way) have a high surface area and rely on close tolerances, but when they get dusty and dirty they get really sticky. ...

    RE: 2-speed question

    What is your gearing like? What surface are you running on (grass?) If you're trying to pull a really steep gear with really big tires, it might be too much gear for the engine to pull. Nothing...

    RE: SO MANY TYPE OF GLOW PLUG

    If I'm not mistaken, the MC-59 is too long. It'll stick into your combustion chamber and expose a couple of threads, which leads to hot spots and the carbon that builds up on the threads can strip...

    RE: Avalanche not starting?

    Haha, I've read LOTS of stuff in magazines that doesn't hold water. Not knocking you, Nick, I'm just calling this as I see it. If concrete floors can do that to car batteries and bottles of nitro,...

    RE: What screws are what

    Is there no manual to download? You might want to know the factory settings and it'll show you what needles do what.

    RE: Avalanche steering question

    The Losi pipe for the LST2 sounds like nothing else I've heard, and seems to work pretty well too. Of course, it's probably no different from the SH torque pipe, but it sure sounds different to me. ...

    Both of those sound like the old wives tale of not keeping your car battery on the concrete floor. For the concrete to do anything bad, it would have to somehow magically leech the chemical THROUGH...

    RE: Extensions on Viper, 1 1/2 inch

    Eddie's Viper picture has the same C-hub suspension as I do. If I hadn't thrown out all my busted junk, I'd have 4 broken ones to show in 3 months of using it. These happened during incidents as...

    RE: Tips for running a Nitro in cold weather?

    I cut the bottom out of a pepsi can. Kinda rattles around a little bit... Haven't tried it in the winter but I anticipate it'll fall off. The sock is a good idea, though.

    RE: Extensions on Viper, 1 1/2 inch

    Those steering hubs are so fragile already, I can't imagine how many you'd go through with the extensions like that! Get some aluminum ones on there, STAT!

    RE: **Official** RXT-1 Truggy thread

    You don't need to use two brake "pads" between the rotors. One of those steels will do the job, and will put less stress on the transmission case as well as take up less room. Does the dogbone...
  21. RE: Glowplug for LRP z.28 and Picco 28 Pullstart

    No expert here, but I did just physically look at the heads of these two engines recently (okay, well almost... the subjects were the Picco P3 PS and a Mach 427). From what I've seen, the Golden...

    RE: fuel in pressure line during startup

    Right, but other than a mess (which, let's face it, these nitro cars are 100% of the time) what's the problem? It would puke a bit of fuel out the exhaust on startup, but otherwise it ran fine...
