Is the Shoe goo type stuff really strong enough to hold weights and Lipo's etc in position.

Whats the advantage of using it over Epoxy or Superglue (I think the Yanks call it Crazyglue)

Yes it is....itís also used to hold servos and stuff in place as well. The advantage is that if you want to remove what ever it is that you just shoe gooed down you can pry it up and peel off the shoe goo like it was never even there.....you canít do that with Epoxy or Superglue. Its not quite as strong as Epoxy and super glue but its more flexible and easier to remove....think of it as a stronger rubber contact cement.

The servos are actually Shoe Goo'd down (or Show Gooed as Adam would say) in both of my cars. We used to have to do it in our Losi off-road cars as well to move the weight forward, so if it can stand up to that beating you should be fine using it on lead.

Chris Goetz' car is the closest I've ever been to wetting myself, and I honestly doubt there is another car built to that level in existance.. It was probably the equivelant of a $2000+ rolling chassis with all the pieces he had made.

Hey Randy, in the pics of the cars, it looks like your going with a single servo mount. What else do you use to hold the servo in. Servo tape? Servo tape w/a ring of shoe goo?

Which ever method you use, how does it hold up for you?

Also, where'd the black pullies and spur come from?

Hi Guys,

Not sure if you've seen this or not, but these are from a long-time brushless and lipo friend of mine. He and I go way back, and he's a top-notch guy to deal with:

Not sure how Randy did his pullies and spur but I dyed mine black with RIT dye that you can find at the grocery store.

Look at my post 2 above yours to see how I held the servo down

For all the black stuff I just use rit dye, works on almost any plastic material, as you can see the black springs and transponders as well.

I wanted to add though, that I did the wiring on those ESC's at my own risk. Opening them up and soldering on different wires and switches voids the warrantee.
LMAO if you ran LRP or even novak you wouldn't have to worry about that...

You should have seen the Kyosho 1/8 scale car he built and never ran. Talk about anal. He polished everything. He got pissed if you touched anything metal on it because it left finger prints. The aluminum pipe looked like it'd been chromed. Even the quick release levers on the axles had been ground smooth and rounded and then polished. It was insane.
