I don't have much... I've owned it for at least a month now. Runs a little faster that I got the new exhaust. Still getting use to owning a car.. I've been the T-Maxx man for years lol.


I have a body but it is funky so I'm getting one painted at[link=http://zielkeracing.com/]http://zielkeracing.com/[/link]

PS: Ignore the yellow box lol

it looks like a giant air filter for the engine. if it is i guess its a good idea because of the rush of cool air while driving. it looks homemade.

i just came in from driving my tc3. luckily the wheather was nice in nyc today. the only problem is i got a couple of blisters from my pullstarter. i think its time to upgrade my engine to a starterbox lol. any suggestions????

The tube thing guys lol.. Wow it's a cold air intake by [link=http://www.rbinnovations.com]RBInnovations[/link]. I bought it mostly for looks but it pepped my car up a little bit.

Spartan: Yeah I ran mine for awhile down here in Virginia when it was about 50 degrees!! I loved it. For the upgrade, I never owned a starter box but I owner a T-Maxx that had that EZ-Start on it and I hated that thing to death. So whatever you do don't get an EZ-Start lol it's horrible.

lol i was somewhat right, the ez start is the button starter right? im going to get the engine that need a starter box, its used by most people including pro racers, so it cant be too bad. the only thing i heard bad was about stripping gears.

Spartan18: Yeah the easy starter crap is the button starter... Starter boxes I don't much about but my buddy has one and he has never complained about it.

gosha: To be honest I really don't know cause I could never find a website for reviews on it but it says JPL-1205S TURBO on it.. It's very nice.

THe stater box is the way to go the only problem with it is that it is heavy and has to be lugged around and has to have a .12v battery other than that no complaints here.

lol i guess everything has its drawbacks. at least i wont have blisters anymore though. damn this thing stings. with the bump box do engines start up right away? with the engine im using now i have to pull the crank so many times before it even sounds like it wants to start. could there be something wrong. also sometimes the pullstart gets hard to pull or stuck. thats the real cause of the injuries. lol

when it gets hard to pull or stuck it means the car is flooded. turn it on its side exhaust tip facing the floor and pull the pull start. This should remove the excess fuel. failing that take the glow plug out and turn it on its side exhaust tip facing the floor and pull the pull start

Give it a whirl that should get rid of the excess fuel. When you prime the engine give it 3-4 pulls with your hand over the block. then lean your car on a 45 degree angle with your glow starter in and pull it. should start in 2 pulls one if you have primed it properly. If you car is still having heaps of trouble starting replace your glow plug

starter boxes will start the car faster and with less head ache but. the car will still cut off after a few min if the motor is not tuned right.

I have had no issues with my pull start .15. I did before but I replaced the glow plug washer and it started fine after that.. You blow in the fuel line before right??

hey guys. i was out driving today and i totally destroyed one of my foam rims. i crashed at a pretty low speed into a parked car tire and poof the rim just popped off clean around the nut. i was amazed i think it got damaged while i was power sliding and stuff but i didnt see any damage until the whole thing actually came off. the spokes of the rim where all crushed inward. the funny thing is that i continued driving with only three tires. it suxs because i just got the foam tires not too long ago about 7 tanks ago.
