RE: Getting a new guitar, help me pick.

I suggested the one I did based on the ones he linked to. It shares the same construction and body woods. If, however, a bolt on is being considered, then I STRONLY agree with a Highway 1 strat. ...

RE: Getting a new guitar, help me pick.

I've got a Heritage dealer near me and I've played them quite a few times. They look great, but they just don't DO it for me.

RE: Getting a new guitar, help me pick.

Sure you can go wrong with Gibson. Gibson's QC has gone to crap, and their prices have gone to the moon.

You want a great 2 humbucker, set neck mahogany body maple topped guitar for around...

RE: so long fellas, it's been fun..

Not my style Sleepy. I'm either IN, or OUT of a hobby. I don't keep it around to tinker on it. If I kept anything around, I'd eventually want more and more. So, it's all gotta go ;)

RE: so long fellas, it's been fun..

A major chunk of it is already gone.. I've been having a big sell off on that OTHER board everyone ran off to at one point, and it's been going well.. So well in fact, I couldn't race at this point...

so long fellas, it's been fun..

Hey guys, as some of you have noticed (and written me asking about, thanks I appreciate the concern), I've not been around much lately. That's because I'm getting out of RC for good. The local...

RE: DEFEND YOUR STYLE!

My favorite is whatever there is a class to race. I drive RC cars for the thrill of racing. The car/truck/whatever is pretty meaningless to me.

darth, what kind of useless crap? An ST is just...

RE: soldering

raz, you are correct. However, it's FAR easier to destroy something with a gun than it is with a pencil.

RE: Electric evader pro upgrade wheels

Not true.. Jaco makes them. They say Associated, but they fit fine. Tower has them.

RE: soldering

Guns are bad, they get too hot and they're hard to hold. Get a simple Weller 40w pencil iron with a chisel tip. You'll never need more unless you get into building a lot of battery packs.

RE: aluminim chassis for my losi

No one makes them for the simple fact that aluminum is bad for electrics. Not only is it heavy, but it has a tremendous potential for shorting the batteries. Some electrics have had al, but the...

RE: Why won't anyone answer to my poll?

I've ran both, here's my take on them..

Neo/Sphere - More top end, not as much torque. I've ran it overgeared, undergeared and balls to the wall, never had a heat problem.

GTB - Less top...

RE: SS5800 prob, need advice

#1 - EWW!

#2 - Go get some motor cleaner and blast it clean. As long as the system wasn't turned on when the umm, incident, occured, it should be ok electrically. The problem now is corosion...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

Honestly, when you compare a Novak motor to a Reedy motor, the numbers don't seem to translate. The Novak 5.5 should bury my Reedy 3 star, but when I compared them head to head, the Reedy was...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

skate, I'd be amazed if it survived without some beefing up.

dan, I'm actually closer to Clinton than Knoxville, not sure how long a drive that would be.

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

Takes 2 motors and you have no where to mount a second pack or ESC.. Not an option for a BL with 2 motors on it yet, so not something I'd ever want to mess with. I MIGHT eventually make it an...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

6 cells is plenty. 7 would be totally uncontrollable. Not that 6 ARE controllable, but 7 would be terrible... I've ran 7c in my Losi before and it works quite well.

I just flipped it over and put my foot on it. I was afriad it would sling the right rear (on the left in the video) completely off this time, but it held ok.. Notice the broken...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

The 3 star is the original, 9t motor. There is a 4 star out now that's a 7t (I think).. That thing would be insane. I want a 19t version of this motor. Then I'll be cruising..

RS4, yes, very...

Nope, haven't been back out. My daughter has decided she needs me more than I need to run out another pack. 7 month olds are like that ;)

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

I feel like I'm a little overgeared right now. Not from a motor heat standpoint, but from a controllability one. It's simply to fast to be a "Pede". Pedes aren't meant to go so fast. Theyre for...

RE: Just finished building my T4!

But, the long term cost is much less. Only takes 21 weeks of buying fuel @ $30 a gallon to burn through what you've spent on electric. Plus, if you have the chance to embarass some dumbass nitro...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

Same as they were before my last Neo blew up. I'd say 10+ easily. It's so cold here right now (I'm sure you saw the snow in the video), it's TOO long for my tastes.. When I get the next pack...

RE: Pede + Neo = LOL!

Sorry, it's a Neo 3 star. They came out with the 3 star first. Why it wasn't the 1 star, I'll never know. Stupid naming scheme.
