RE: clutch system installation???

He basically means " you have a killer engine but don't know how to install a clutch. Losi makes a great tool to easily remove and replace springs. The instructions are straightforward and it's...

RE: Idle setting wheels moving when suspended?

I agree I've encountered this in the past and went to a slightly stiffer spring. I also put aluminum shoes in my Savage and went one size up on the springs and it idles great and launches nice...

RE: Futaba 3PM 2.4 FASST or DX3S Specktrum?

The Futaba is a great radio and is likely to be much more reliable than the Spektrum. I have Futaba's top of the line radio from 1991 and it still works perfectly and is still used when we invite...

RE: What is happening to Duratrax and tower hobbies

All I can say is that I have owned cars and trucks by HPI, Associated, Losi, OFNA, & Kyosho, and none have gone through parts like the TQ. In fact the Duratrax TQ was the only vehicle that I didn't...

RE: Is AM 27mhz ok

The Futaba 3PM 2.4g is your best bet if buying new, but if you can't swing $189 right now a great radio that can be found cheap is the Futaba 3PJS. It is a FM radio that can transmit 75mHz FM (or...

RE: Kyosho DBX vs. CEN Talon NX

The quality of CEN's plastic leaves a lot to be desired, we have two CEN MG 16s and while they are fun,fast, and have a great engine we are always breaking things like bumpers,wheels, body mounts,...

RE: What is happening to Duratrax and tower hobbies

I had a ThunderQuake so I'm not one bit surprised that Tower is dropping them. Duratrax has poor R&D and quality control compared to HPI, Associated, Kyosho, etc. I would never buy another...

RE: Aftershock questions..

You are killing your engine by running no shim and without a pipe. No shim will cause detonation and destroy your piston. No pipe will cause it to run lean, two strokes NEED a pressurized tank to...

RE: Best nitro 1/16

At first I thought the CEN MG 16 was really nice but EVERY tiime we take ours out we break something. Dumb stuff like body posts, bumper mounts, wheels, even spurs. These are all parts that should...

RE: Any good entry level 2.4Ghz radios??

I've always felt that the radio is just as, or maybe even more important than the car it goes into. Just bite the bullet and pick up a Futaba 3PM 2.4g radio. Tower has them for $199 but they have...

RE: How does your family view your hobby?

My wife is OK with me and my son enjoying the hobby, in fact she knows it's one of the best father/son hobbies out there. I've been with her almost 20 years and have been into RCs even longer so she...

RE: How good is the e-savage?

It's a good truck, my 10 year old has one and loves it. You probably won't find too many LHS carrying parts for it but he's pretty rough on it and has only had one failure, a broken diff output...

RE: Nimh Charger suggestion

There are a few chargers that can do two at a time but it's usually at lower current rates. My best advice would be to get a charger that can handle NiCd, NiMH, and LiPo because sooner or later...

RE: New LST XXL DX3S Scroll Button Repair

What's sad is that it's a decent radio and Spektrum ( who MUST monitor forums) hasn't addressed it yet by means of a recall or do it yourself kit with an improved roller.

RE: Just dropped ~$1200 on a Flux

I'm sorry but I have a hard time believing that a computer P/S delivers 18 amps of current. Maybe on paper but in the real world I doubt it. Your charger draws a lot more current than a hard drive...

RE: Nomadio React 2.4GHz Radio

Sorry you'd need a Futaba 4PK for four channel or the M11 2.4g, it is a four channel system and a great radio for the money.

RE: Nomadio React 2.4GHz Radio

Just get the Futaba 3PKS 2.4g or even the Airtronics M11 2.4g, both great radios and parts and support are there. You won't have to worry about buying receivers for either system, they are readily...

RE: threadlock screw

Acetone works well on stubborn threadlock too, just don't heat it while it's wet with acetone. You might have to apply it a couple of times but it will soften and disolve the Loctite.

RE: I am soo sick of winter !!!!

It's finally in the forties and fifties here so we've been taking the electrics out. Maybe 20 years ago I'd run cars when it's freezing but we just set up a nice Scalextric 1/32 slot car track for...
