i think it was complete bs that they deleted blue's post it was totally on topic, he was suggesting some ideas for the paint job FOR THIS CAR!!!!!! or is that off topic too? oh wait i bet this gets deleted for being off topic too. i personally would have liked to have had a better look at at what blue was suggesting for the body on THIS DRIFT RC CAR MADE BY HIMOTO.

Those parts you powdercoated look awesome!!! The pipe and header look great together.

Have been thinkin' about buying a powdercoater for full scale parts. Never thought of using

one for RC parts. Looks cool,

That's the main reason I bought it was to powder coat R/C parts. Only got an oven big enough for a 1/10th scale chassis to fit in length wise, width wise and it's about 14 inches high.

A boost bottle is a small sealed chamber connected to the manifold of a 2 stroke engine by a small tube. It works with a 2 stroke when it sucks in gas, then the piston goes up the gas wants to keep going forward but hits the piston. It would then usually go back into your carb making your fuel mixture double rich in the time fractions of a second. With a boost bottle this flow back of gas goes up into the bottle and compresses itself to do inertia, it will then shoot back down into your cylinder. This makes gas go into your cylinder quicker, allowing for a better explostion and quicker stroke. weather it works on an rc engine, i dont know. It should work since its basically a 2 stroke engine using a different fuel than gas. I guess it cant hurt, just let us know Wade, do a before and after test.

Ya there will be, I'm thinking letting him do his thing, with the black and purples putting our logo on the side, like my savage and then maybe he can do something with those masks he posted up there, HOW ABOUT IT BLUE, starting thinking what you can do with the colors of our logo, our logo and those masks you posted. Not sure what body yet though, maybe you can look at some bodies and tell me what body would look good, what do you think there blue.
I am partial to this body they have it 190 and 200 mm http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMRB9&P=7

Ya I will do a before and after test, but do you drill into the intake at the bottom of the carb or where do you put the nipple to connect the boost bottle??

Wade....
Mebbe I'm wrong, but I dont think the Boost bottle will have THAT much effect on those single needle carbs.

Has any one thought of Pulling a 2 needle carb off a SH engine and boltin it up to the Taipan?

It would Have to be more Tunable, wouldn't it?


By the Way.....
That things lookin SWEET!
I LIKE those Rims......
