Hey fellow enthusiasts.

I'm Blake and I Like Quake.

Duratrax that is.


I've been addicted to the early duratrax nitros since my first at age 11 in 2000.

I've pretty much became the full support guru for these models, pre chinese, is my specialty.

I’m Ray, also known to many as Bender. Bodyman and fabricator for 35 years. Father of 5 and typical grumpy old guy. I was heavy into rc’s waaaaay back in the day. I got out of it in 90-91? My kids drug me back in this past Christmas If I could figure out how to post pics I would. However I’d get lots of hate mail over broken screens so probably a good thing I don’t know how to. If it’s metal, body or paint and I can be of help feel free to ask.

When you're creating a new post, underneath the left side of the text box it says Options and Attachments.

Click on Attachments.

You can upload images two different ways. You can either click and drag them into the text box or click on the little Add files button. The button is also underneath the left side of the text box.

Once you click that, a window will open up on your computer. Navigate to where the image you want to upload is, and double click on it or single click and then click open.

When you do that, your image will upload to the site. Repeat the process for all the images you want to add to your post.

It will display the file(s) you've uploaded underneath the text box.

Finally you have two options. You can simply submit the post, and it will add the images to it automatically but it bunches them together, and is not the preferred method.

The better way is to click the Place inline button next to the image filenames, as that allows you to place them in your post however you like.
Its the same way with Android devices.

It has nothing to do with RC.

That name is probably close to 20 years old. It dates back to my nitrous equipped Mustang coupe (I've had a few, and still do). It was probably best known on a forum called SBFTech, of which I was a mod with my own tech section.

Damn son....should have put 2 and 2 together....me and "the diamond" one are nitrous enthusiasts too!....we have retired from it due to financial restraints but had a true passion for it....from 455 Pontiacs, to 460/454 jets boats to 50cc 2 stroke vintage scooters....loved it!

Thanks man. Ya for me, the simple version is….today’s style of police work just isn’t what I signed up for.

I think it would be like telling a plumber to stop sweating pipes with a torch and start using a BIC lighter instead. And then telling him that’s how he has to sweat pipes from here on out if he wants to continue making his living as a plumber.

Something like that anyway :)

Not to get political, but your state is full of backwards thinkers. Move to Texas and come work for Texas DPS. :mrgreen:
