" Why would anyone who was thinking about getting into RC actually decide to do it when they get on this board and gets made fun of and bashed. I agree that it is highly immature and it is making some of you look like complete fools. This is a hobby which I for one would like to see grow and expand. If we treat potential hobbyist and racers the way you guys are on this board then there's not much chance of that happening.
DJ, I have plenty of rims but not the kind you're looking for. Sorry. I'm thinking they'd be too big for your car anyways. "
Thank you very much... Pretty crazy how this hobby seems to have gone down hill. We had 12 cars with an average of 1g in each and two custom 6ft+ weed wacker powered boats. We NEVER would bash another racer or hobbiest in this way. We had the fastest and best engionered cars at that time in our area and won many trophys in Canada for friendship games.... Dont hate because I want to have fun.
Any wheel wont be to big.... Im just cutting the wheel pattern out and sticking it to my old hub. Heres pics for example
If you want, feel free to look in this folder... then make fun of the cars.... http://www.e-zone.nl/jevries/
Theres some sweet vids of stuff working.
"DJ- for your project I would look into a Multiplex Profi-car radio it has 7 channels. Go ahead and replace the reciever, speedo, and steering servo aong with your 3 wheel servos. Even easier to use wou;d be an airplane radio (stick) I would get at least a 6 channel radio so you could have 1 servo dedicated to each wheel. Look into Tamiya servo savers, they have multiple mounting holes for the tie-rods and 3 springs to change the tension which will allow you to not need any shocks. Reversing speedos can be had for as little as $30, just make sure you get one with a brake....
Also spend the extra cash on high speed and high torque servos, and make sure you get metal geared ones.......... This car will never be worth what you put into it, but hey you will definately have the coolest "hopin' hooptie" ever built........ HMMM maybe I will do something like that with the spare TC3 I have????? "
Thanks for the sugestions! I would love to get all that stuff but if I did I would buy a good chassis lol... These cant take to much punishment. Ive had to start bracing spots with aluminum but it working out nicely.
I will keep in mind the electronics sugested tho... sounds like a fun project. This one is nice for me because of its price. I want to keep it low buck. Btw.... You should build a car! If your not happy with it sell it on ebay! People pay $200+ for non rolling 1/10 hoppers..... win win eather way..... might help getting rid of some spare parts from the junk box
Pegausus Hobbies has them. They also sell complete R/C low rider kits that will do just about everything the full size cars can.
PS: Take that "Kick me" sign off your back! "
Thanks for the link... Ive found them at a couple spots online but dont need new ones really. Id rather ruin an old set.
" Wow, that's a really good one! You're so talented, sweetie. Why don't you stop hiding behind that monitor, get out of your mommy's basement and get a fucking life. "
