Some photos of the drift car. The "tyres" are pathetic I need some foam or rubber tyres rather than the pieces of hard plastic they have now but I guess that's the point. Might wrap them in some amalgamating tape and see what happens. Still it was fun for ten minutes out on the street just needs HID's
I found the Rustler a good compromise of clearance without the height of the M/Truck so he wasn't going to roll it as much - seems, so far, to have been a good choice.
I can see why a fast charger is a good idea. The std. unit takes it time!
Hey wayne might be headed to your home town in a couple of weeks where are all the good hobby shops remembet the one at berjaya times square near the indoor theme park had some good stuff i bought aston a usb heli from there last time any good ones at the pavilion klcc seemed to be mostly fashion stuff
Yeah I'm a Volvo driver
wow this thread is long now, not going to read it all.
I have been thinking to buy an Axial Honcho or wraith. 2 sort of different types of car, anyone have any experience with them? I'd say the wraith is better suited for me and what I want to use it for, just like the look of the Honcho more.
Matt, I have one of the Kyosho rc bikes, the Honda NSR 500. I really really wanted to get the suzuki rgv 500 also, but for some dumb reason didn't. They are huge and very heavy. Had it since about 2005 I think.
Actually last time I moved, 2001? I threw out a og tamiya lambo countach, og box radio gear etc, just needed the hard case hump back battery pack. I still have a tamiya peugeot 306 maxi, dark impact and got my son a blackfoot 3. Modded the black foot to 4wd, twin engine etc. It's fun to drive, try to get him to go slow and stuff but he usually just floors it. We built it together too.
but yeah anyway, thinking of a crawler/off roader/racer ??? not 100% sure.
hey guys got the turnigy accucell charger from hobby king as per the instructions I am assuming one of the connections on the lipo is for balancing the cells (doh.) and the other for charging. Looks like I need another connector thingy to fit the one matty gave me. The other LiPo battery I ordered from Hobbyking is also coming with a multi connector which is supposed to fit all plugs including tamiya and traxxas. Found a power supply for it to from an external hard drive.
Hey Paul we should get a few and start practising heheh
o/t this is pretty cool check the frame rate.

The Hobby King charger comes with the XT60 connector which is an open standard connector they are trying to encourage the industry to move too. Much better than the red Deans T connectors IMHO.
I made up an adapter cable to charge my deans connector battery packs from the Hobbyking charger
are you desperate I could make you one up this weekend as well?

The phrase is "Dry as a nuns nasty". Err not on my very limited experience. Also it seems much easier to me topotentially accidentally short a deans when pulling it apart. There is a moment where the connector is exposed and still connected to the battery. The XT60 has much more gripping space and the metal is never fully exposed. It's a better though out design by a long shot.
I disagree with the phrasing of the statement, I maintain my version is more accurate. The unpenetrated orifice of the nun is likely to be tight, whereas she's still suceptible to visual and audiotory stimulation, thereby possiblyt allowing her to be wet.
