Acht so!
Thank you very much GKC. You have a very fierce 04 BTW!

Also, do you guys think the graphite arms take damage well? If they do then I can consider sticking to them (I got one set but I switched over to the resin ones for the race.) Because the resin ones are so much cheaper if I break 'em!

Regards,
Alvin

Nitro Dave,
Nice car, where were you driving at? Is it carpet?
Finally, what did you use to film it?

nitro dave .... do u want your rs540 to run like its a mod motor ???

u will be beating and overlapping everyone on the track with the 540

first PROPERLY break-in your motor
second spend the extra few bucks on pinion and spur combination of a final drive ratio of 4.8 - 5.2

maybe 108 spur and a 44 pinion for a 5.2 Final Drive ratio combination

OR 108 spurand 47 or 48 pinion for a fdr of 4.8

hehehehe u will be running like a mod motor !!!!!!!

GKC:
Your ride seems to be exactly what I want my 04 to be!

Cool. My graphite arms I temporary kept them. Because the feel of the car with them is not so good with the resin arms. But see how I will change over to 'em once I get some thinner shock oil.

Default Your car pics

Aurra Sing - I was wondering whether you could email me a few shots of your cars so we can post them on our website RC Car Racer.
Thanks
That goes for anyone else who has some pics they want to post, They don't have to be 04's either.
