I have the ryobi 4v screwdriver. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago along with a dynamite (p/n 2932) 2 mm hex and associated (p/n 1667) 7m nut driver. Using clutch setting 4 on plastic with no worries, and setting 5 on wheels with no problems. Slow speed of course.

All holes were hand screwed in originally.

Really...Do we really need to go there?

Sure he can drive but sometimes how he presents his thoughts/ideas rub people the wrong way. We just need to help George work on his communication skills.

I know of quite a few people who can setup cars but ask them to drive them...well they are not as fast on the clock and the same works the other way. We don't need to dig up videos of people racing just to prove a point.

Nice work George.

I agree Kraig. He just uses phrases/terminology that pushes some people's buttons.

No worries I thought that was really cool, and while looking at the pic I was like wow that really looks like mine just took me a second.

I Am thinking about going to a carpet indoor race I would be running a 7.5 though. They say the tires below work. Track is ozite.

Buggy: Front -
Schumacher Stagger or Cut Stagger (Yellow Compound)
No foams, trimmed

Pro-Line Wedge Z3

Rear:
Schumacher Mini-Pin (Yellow)
Pro-Line Pin-Point Z3

Any other tricks or tips recommended for carpet like this -

Small indoor carpet astroturf, wooden medium size jumps. More grip than you can deal with. Most tuning is to take away grip.

Tires: Dboots Terrabyte A Comp Front (inner and outer row of pins trimmed off), Dboots Nanobyte A Comp Rear

Everything kit setup except:
white springs 1.6 piston 32.5 oil all 4 shocks
Shorty battery full forward
3mm spacer under rear inner link (+1mm from kit)
RTR Weight ~1560g.

Can drive super hard due to being very safe, no rolling issues at all. So fun!

I know a few pages ago there were some skeptical that you could get a B5m under ROAR minimum, but here's another one.

Very nice build Bill. Can you list the various things you put on the car to bring it to that weight?
