RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
hey just so you guys know, if you wanna run on saturday, that's ok with me cause as long as I leave the track by 2:30-3:00 I'll still have time for a evening hunt. I might not even go this satuday evening cause it suppose to be as hot this weekend as it is now.

hey do you guys have any spare 5b parts:D
i just picked this up cheap. i think the diff has issues.
i need to tear it down and see why it locks up when you roll it.
only has 1/2 hour runtime on it.
the engine is fine on this one :D:D:D:D:D.

layshaft gear smooth as can be lol
second gear has a couple chunks missing and the gears inside the diff are notchy.

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
how,where,and what was this guy you got it from driving that buggy on to do that much dammage in only 1/2 of an hour of driving it?

fourwheels0 11-11-2010 10:26 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
ya tell me about it.
he said he rolled it doing about 30mph. he must have not let off the gas to do that kind of damage is all i can think.
oh'ya he also broke the main chassis before he did this.
he put a new main chassis on then did this lol.
i love people that have no clue what they are doing:D:D:D:D:D.

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
broke the chassis BEFOR he sheered those gears http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f.../msn/75_75.gif , then repalced the whole chassis...... then proceded to destroy the gears in the diff. hhhmm let me seehttp://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...y/msn/idea.gif wait a minute, I know where he was driving it at, had to be a mine field, and he drove directly over a land minehttp://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...ey/msn/lol.gif

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
yep used to see guys like that come in to the hobby shop all the time! Dave or Mike would fix and rebuild their trucks and within a day or two they would be back in with it smashed up again!! The other thing that always got me was that they were willing to pay $28/hr to get their trucks fixed up again!!!

Nice looking buggy Mike! Sounds like you guys are running trucks though?

fourwheels0 11-12-2010 12:20 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
joel ya some people just have no clue or don't care.

we are running trucks but both ernie and scott have buggies also.
so now we can run trucks or buggies lol.

slicks 11-12-2010 12:38 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
I thought Scott had the buggy! Didn't know that he had both!

Well - I am going to try and get out there tomorrow (Saturday). I got a lot of work done last weekend and the past couple of nights so I think I can get out there for an hour or two. Looking forward to watching those things run. The only time I saw one run was at Scotts track and as you are aware just way too small an area for those beasts.

fourwheels0 11-12-2010 01:00 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
here's the rest of the carnage lol.
broken chassis.

huntinman 11-12-2010 02:12 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread

fourwheels0 11-12-2010 02:17 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
nope!!!!!!!! he was testing the durability of the curb.
the curb passed with flying colors:D:D:D.

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
sure it figures.

slicks 11-14-2010 04:57 AM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
:):).........want to know what I think........this guy Dave knows exactly what you guys talk about and then puts it on "sale" on his site!! Think about it the timing is just too perfect :) You might want to check your vehicles to see if they are bugged!

It sure was cool watching those things run! I can see why you guys like them so much.

Mike that is a cool looking body.....go ahead and get it - I am sure that Ernie would be more than willing to "modify" it for you!! I thought the added touches he put on Scotts truck body were pretty cool!!

fourwheels0 11-16-2010 06:51 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
ok the gears for the buggy are on the way along with something else.

fourwheels0 11-16-2010 07:38 PM

RE: Charlottesville Racers Thread
ok i'm lost.
how does this gear come off the drive cup?.
i took out both the set screw's on the diff case and the diff cup and it won't budge.

nevermind i got it off.

only issue is it has the small diff gears and i can't get them aaaarrrrrgggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
now i need a complete diff too.[:@][:@][:@][:@][:@][:@].
