Re: So, what did you do RC today?

Wow guys!...Life has taken me in a different direction. I can't believe it's been over 6 years since I've posted anything on this site...I have lots of catching up to do. Racing died out for me several years ago, and since my last post, I rebuilt the tractor (yet again), Decided to go modern with a ...

Re: So, what did you do RC today?

That tractor is sweet! I want to see a video of it driving! I'll have to take some video shots of it. This is the 3rd time I've rebuilt it...I'll post it on the original thread. If there was ever an RC vehicle that needed a scale Daisy Duke figure sitting on it, that tractor is it! :lol: So cool! D...

Re: So, what did you do RC today?

I spent last evening scraping and replacing the decals on my sprint car. Everything is vinyl that I cut out on my wife's Cricut machine. The "Cali Dirt Videos" decal on the wing is from an awesome Youtube site (shameless plug!)....I sent a pic of the previous version to the guy, and he sen...

Re: The 'Holiest' of Holy Grails AGI Jammer Build

Very interesting build...I take it that you're going to mount the tranny as a mid. Did you cut the chassis yourself, or is it made for that? Also, how are you mounting the bulkhead/tower?...I just started a mid project out of spare parts.

Going Bolink 1/10 pan car front end...simple onroad design...

Kind of sounds like the sprint car I built. Can't wait to see it finished.

Mid-Six Spare Parts Project

Well, the building itch has hit me again. I was going through my old parts box, and found I had almost everything to put together another RC10...I already have one, so I've decided to experiment. I picked up a sheet of 3mm G10 and using only the parts I have, build a mid-motor road car, much in the ...

Re: Mid-Six Spare Parts Project

Thanks Juice and Klavy....I needed the laugh today :lol: !!! I managed to get a bit more done this evening. Since the chassis has no kickup, I used an old trick some people used back in the 80s, by shaving the stops out of the caster blocks and swapping sides. I found some RPM axle blocks (I have no...

Re: She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy

With other projects I've been working on, I almost forgot about the latest makeover with the tractor. After I finished the JD, I really didn't like it. It looked pretty accurate, just not my taste....so after I retired, I tried one more time for something I like. All the decals on it (and the Bush H...

Re: Mid-Six Spare Parts Project

Here's today's progress... I got the front tower cut, mounted and all the steering linkage hooked up. The car has about 3/4" of ground clearance when all the running gear is in. Also, I got the battery tray built and installed. I used the poor man's method of balancing the car by standing a 3/8...

Re: Mid-Six Spare Parts Project

The BASIC car is complete! I got the electronics cleaned up and installed. Installed new bullet plugs on the ESC, and I shortened the servo wire (and found out age is catching up with me trying to see it :shock: ). ....I haven't taken it out yet, but I did bench test everything. ...Next thing is to ...

Re: Mid-Six Spare Parts Project

I've completed the project today...Used an old RPM bumper that I heated and flattened out. The rear was cut from G10, but I may redesign it. I've accomplished the goal of building it entirely from parts, including the body. That was a bit of a trick getting the holes to line up with the mounts. I di...

Re: Traxxas sending cease and desist letters to aftermarket companies then backing off.

Last year, my wife talked me into buying a modern vehicle so there would be parts availability. I decided on a Slash kit, since it was versatile and everyone carried parts. Since then, I have replaced most of it with aftermarket parts, because the stock components are flimsy. Eventually, I converted...

Re: So what did you get in the post today ???

Brand new Losi 22S drag roller. It was too good to pass up.
