RE: Rechargable battery pack?

RE: New to 1/8 Buggies

That 777 from tower doesn't come with anything but the car either. You'd need pipe, engine, radio, servos, starter box to get it going..

RE: zlooking to buy my first R/C

GPM Paper Filters, Any good?

Are these style of filters any good? I'm considering one with a prefilter on the outside. Seems like you could use compressed air to clean the inner filter. Let me know what you all think..

RE: Anyone have problems with a 3PM-TFS?
