    RE: Needing a motor

    If that's an OFNA LX, then the pic is a mirror image....at least compared to mine.

    RE: wierd back fire on savage???? please help

    RE: Opinions needed on sale of REVO!

    Sadly, used RCs don't seem to sell for what they're really worth. Seems to me that if you take the new purchase price, ignore all the $$$ you spent on hop-ups, divide that original purchase price by...
  7. RE: What is a good asking price for these different cars?

    Seems to me that if you take the new purchase price, ignore all the $$$ you spent on hop-ups, divide that original purchase price by 2, you'll get a deccent price IF the vehicle is in pristine shape....
  8. RE: WARNING: DO NOT ORDER FROM EBAY SELLER "BIG HEAD HOBBIES"

    Here's a point worth mentioning:

    Also......you have to tighten the head screws a little bit at a time and work your way around the head...back and forth as much as possible. Otherwise, if you tighten only one screw down all the...
  12. RE: different fuel brands after break in okay?

    In the words of Tony the Tiger, Blue Thunder is "GREAT"!...at least compared to Backyard Basher (Sidewinder) which I will never suffer with again. I ususally buy Sidewinder RACE.

    I have the old style box. Adding a fail-safe wasn't easy, but it did all manage to fit. I added a charging jack just above the ON/OFF switch, so no room there. Being stubborn and having a little...

    Save $$$ by mixing Diff Oil

    Gotta buy 1K, 5K, and 7K...to try in my buggy differentials. Maybe I won't like them and want 2K, 3K and 7K. Last time I checked, a single bottle of silicon oil was almost $10 (Canadian). I really...
