You will see "Control Panel" on the left side of the ensuing page. At the bottom of the list is "buddy/ignore lists". Click on that, fill in minicrapper's name (be sure not to capitalize it and it does run together)

Click "Save List" to the right of where you enter his name

And with luck you won't see any more of his posts.

Let's all do it so no one is tempted to respond to the troll.
Kool, I like that.

I've been using Spice dish rims on my Mini and they have been very strong. Even boiled them in water to remove a tyre so I could spin it around, and didn't crack or go out of shape.

Northcraft package of 8-12 white rims right? Very poor quality. I've had that same experience. In my experience the ABC Black rims are by far the best. I've boiled and reused a set twice now and not a single crack are warp. Spins true as the day I bought it! White ones not quite as good though. Black HPI's also very durable. SPice dish is good but the yellow spoked ones warp quite easily.

Something about the black pigment makes them stronger? I find thats true with the M03 chassis as well. The black one that came with the Swift kit just lasted alot longer.

So you can get off tires that are glued to the wheels by boiling them, eh? About how long does it take?

I have some HPI X radials that are just fine, but the wheels are beat to crap. I'd like to get as much life out of these rare tires as possible.

The tires aren't damaged during the boiling, are they?

Hmm.. i'm boiling to save the rims not tyres... might wanna try soaking in vinegar. try that before boiling. I've heard some guys having luck with this.

Yeah, well me and my basher ways do not treat rims very well. Street racing with my nephews really took a toll on a set of Tamiya Monte Carlo plated rims. But the tires are still great. Vinegar... I'll give that a go.
