I don't know if anybody even knows what a comm lathe is any more. Everything's seems to be going to brushless. I think I have 30 or so brushed motors so I still use mine but I think I'm an...

I just use the ca I get from Lowes. Way more important to have everything very clean than to use any particular brand of ca. Did I mention you should clean everything very well before you glue them?

Just some food for thought, if you crash your car at 70mph it's not going to be pretty. I get why people want to go real fast but hi speed will get real expensive.

I've never done it on anything other than nylon. I don't know about other plastics. I'd be real careful trying it on the other plastics. Works great on nylon, though..

Old nylon like that gets brittle over time. If you take it off the chassis and boil it in water for a few minutes it softens the nylon and makes it more flexible so it doesn't break as easily.

If you do what Bill said and run a 5 cell nimh battery you're going to be pretty slow. Slow is a pretty relative term though. It'd help to know what kind of mph you're looking for.

I think most 540 size motors will run on 3s. They're not going to last very long but they'll run. You'll probably need access to a com lathe and brush supply. I run brushed motors on 2s all the...

What makes you an expert on the pandemic? Why can a virus travel six feet but not seven or more feet? How does a mask help when your breath exits the mask around your nose and fogs your glasses?...

I've always used simple green and alcohol 50-50 mix in a spray bottle. Small paint brush and then air compressor. Foaming simple green sounds pretty good. Might have to try it.

Finding the right chassis is something you're probably going to have to figure out yourself. The wheelbase and body width are unknown so there's no way to make a good suggestion. Even knowing the...

Kinda depends on what you want to do with it and what will fit under the body. Is it 1/10 scale, 1/8 scale, 1/18 scale? You need something with the proper wheelbase, then body mounts. That's where...

I'd probably take the cover off and hook it up to charge a battery then see where the beeping is coming from. The round thing is probably the beeper. That's what they usually look like.

I don't think you're going to get the epoxy out. I think it's there for waterproofing, stops vibration from breaking the solder joints, and to keep you from trying to fix it. They don't want you to...
