RE: 1/10 RC Formula 1 Cars...lets see'em

Here is my F103RM I bought myself for Christmas. I haven't put any decals on it yet but I dont think I'm going to anyway because I like the all jet black look. On my next body I think I'll do...

RE: F103 foams?

The F103RS hasn't been made in some time so more than likely its been sitting on that shelve for many years. Great find!

RE: 1953 Chevrolet Half-Ton Dually flat bed build

Awesome as usual. Are you planning on weathering it like your other rigs? I think the bed would look more scale if it was weathered to look old and beaten up. Of course you'd need to weather...

RE: Going Slow is The Way To Go - Tamiya CR-01 Resource Thread!

Are you sure about that? I heard it was the transmission, beadlocks, and driveshafts. The axles aren't assembled.

RE: 1/10 RC Formula 1 Cars...lets see'em

This may sound stupid but that body looks to have a protective cover on it, don't forget to remove it before applying the decals.

RE: E-Maxx or the Super Clod Buster?

The two trucks are completely different beasts. The Emaxx has independent suspension, is much faster out of the box, and can handle higher speeds. The Clod is more like a full size monster truck with...

RE: Going Slow is The Way To Go - Tamiya CR-01 Resource Thread!

Well I'm just going by my experience. My brother is running the stock silver can in his CR01 and we had his ESC wrapped in a balloon all summer and I checked it constantly to make sure it wasn't...

RE: Going Slow is The Way To Go - Tamiya CR-01 Resource Thread!

With waterproofing you really have to decide for yourself how much risk you're willing to take. Personally I would wrap both the ESC and receiver in a balloon. For the servo I would put some silicone...

RE: 1/10 RC Formula 1 Cars...lets see'em

Glad to hear you worked it out with them! I bought myself the regular F103RM for Christmas. I'll post pics of it next week.




What color? Personal preference. I'm painting mine black...

RE: new to on-road need advice

I strongly suggest going with one of the Tamiya TB03 cars instead of the TT01. Like somebody said above the TT01 needs a number of upgrades to be a decent runner. Unless you're buying it specifically...

RE: Does anyone use Hard Plastic Bodies (ie Hummer H2, Jeeps, ect)

If you do a search on some of the rock crawling specific forums you'll find tons of people who use hard bodies for scale crawling projects. A very common lid is the Tamiya Hilux though piecing one...

RE: applying traction compound to foams

You're correct. There are two options. Some use the sun block to keep the traction compound from drying before the race. For example the racer will apply traction compound, let it sit for a period of...

RE: My First On-Road

Cyclone S doesn't have a graphite chassis. I say try looking around for a used TC4 Factory Team. You should easily be able to find one RTR for that price. If you look around for a while you can find...

RE: Do I dare try? (snow)

Just dry everything off when you come in and give bare steel parts (screws, tierods, etc) a quick spray with WD40 to prevent them from rusting.

RE: What's on your holiday wishlist?

I bought myself a Tamiya F103RM F1 car for Christmas and my brother is getting a body, 1.9" tires, and wheels for his Tamiya Land Cruiser.

RE: 1.9 class rules = bogus!!!

I'm glad they made the one motor rule. Look at the vast majority of 1.9 rigs and what do you see? A tranny on the chassis being run by one motor powering two driveshafts into two axles. If they...

RE: Going Slow is The Way To Go - Tamiya CR-01 Resource Thread!

Yea 35t is more than enough for something like this. I'm running a 45t on my Axial and even with a larger than stock pinion gear on it I still think it's too slow.

RE: Going Slow is The Way To Go - Tamiya CR-01 Resource Thread!

That'll be fine. My brother is running Axial wheels on his CR01 as well.

The super duty is a good choice, as well as the Traxxas EVX II.

RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

Their kits aren't that well made, plain and simple. Mine came with the metal all gouged up and when I contacted ESP about the problem they never replied. Besides that everything is made of thin sheet...

RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

Try searching back through this thread and you'll see my opinions on ESP's products. Personally I'd spend a little more and get something good.
