RE: How do guys water proof??

It's never a good idea to run your buggy in water/rain. There's no possible wayto 100% "waterproof" your buggy. Water can find it's way into the electronics, and even if you somehow sealed those, you...

RE: Best Brushless Conversion Kit for the RC8 FT?

If I use that zippy 5000 4S Pack, will I need to add any extra padding? It looks like the AE conversion tray has about 2-3mm of padding included. I've never ran lipo in anything, and it looks like...

RE: Difference between losi 2.0 and team associated buggy's

That's cool. I actually broke a front shock shaft on the big bores once, so I put the old shocks on (they had the emulsion mod though) and didn't really notice a difference at that track. Didn't...

RE: Difference between losi 2.0 and team associated buggy's

</p>

I know my car did. It couldn't turn worth a dime before I did the mod. You should try it, it's cheap, and it makes the car a totally new car. Even more so than the big bores, IMO. With both...

RE: tell your'e worst crash !!!!

My worst crash wasn't really and impact, but it was by far the costliest mistake I've ever made in R/C. I it was about a year ago. I had just rebuilt my Novarossi BF21 6 port the night before. I...

RE: First 1/8 scale car

I've only run 1/8 buggies, but from what I have seen and heard, buggies are faster and more agile. Truggy's are slower but due to this and the increased traction from bigger, wider tires, they are...

RE: low cost engine or used?

I've heard nothing but good things about the GO 5 and 7 port 21s, and even the 3 port race, but I personally tried a GO 3 port sport last year, and wasn't impressed. It was very difficult to tune. It...

RE: Brand new OS Vspec with bad front bearing!!

RE: How Long To Oil Diffs

The only thing bad about building diffs is that it takes a LOT of time and wrenching. Other than the amount of labor, it's pretty straight forward.

RE: My New RC8 FT Buggy

I know someone who runs for Orion. He said the .21 Wasp ran great, but it had a little more fuel consumption than the O.S. motors he had ran before. Whatever you do, don't throw away the V-spec if it...
