The M03R uses 1050 bearing in its aluminum hubs.

rc-mini.net has changed...

A whole new layout, thats hopefully a little easier to navigate around and a bit clearer as well.

And to start with, check out these awesome new additions

Go here to see them both.

Default cockpit for my minis

I finally freed up some time to complete my pilotless RCs.
I made a few of these and this is the result with a quick paint job.

I'm happy with the results - a few webbing issues I can live with since they're sitting inside the body.

The Tamiyas deserve the "complete" look! You cant' have a pilotless car...OR can you?

You can't have headless pilot's and co-pilot's in the cockpit...so I made the heads too!

Scottrik,

Thanks for the kind comments. I appreciate it.

I use acrylic-based paint. Tamiya, or any generic namebrand will work. You can use the generic brand that is used widely in the ceramic hobby. It's cheaper and applies just as nice and easy.

We have a new Mini class at S & M Trackside; it's call "Mini Nose Standing."

By using a combination of throttle control, forward and reverse of course and servo torque steer, you see how long you can get your Mini to stand on it's nose. Pictured, is our local track champion the one and only Buck, orange shirt, he kept his Mini on it's nose for the full five minutes.

Imagine - an RC tour group travelling the country doing RC stunts and things similar to this.
