Figured I post up an intro thread since I just join
My name is Sean, and I'm a 23 year old mechanical engineering student. RC's cars always kinda caught my eye but I never actually made the plunge until recently. I do some casual racing with my real car at local auto crosses and after seeing the tunability of my roomates car I went out and bought one. Its my first RC car (other then the radio shack specials I had as a kid) and I'm still learning quiet a bit...Feel free to post up any words of wisdom
If this is anything like other car forums Ive been on I figure I better post pictures.
HPI Sprint 2 Sport RTR kit
Since the picture I upgraded the motor to a Team Orion 15T Formula 2 Pro BB, much quicker
I also have a one way front diff coming tomorrow.
Next thing I want to buy is a slightly better battery charger. The one I have now takes forever and only goes up to 2.5A (any recommendations for $40-50 NiMH charges would be appreciated)
The real car is a 92 Nissan 240sx, coil over suspension, solid tie rod end links with bump steer adjustment, adjustable front and rear sway bars, OEM Helical limited slip from S15, B&M short shifter, SS brakelines with hawk HPS pads, front bushings replaced with energy suspension polyurethane, and cusco solid motor mounts.
