I figured out the problem with my car, turns out the antenna wire got pinched in between the reciver box lid and ruined the wire. Oops! I'm on the road again! I worked on my new warrior body till 4 in the morning and then a few hours today. I'm calling this one the ECKO EXPRESS! I'll post it up very soon! Stay tuned! Let's just say it looks filthy and I can't quit looking at it.

Looking at your “footer” in your rctech posts, it’s obvious for all to see; you have a vendetta against Ipanema. It is obvious to everyone how far into the gutter you are willing to go to try to negatively influence public opinion against Ipanema.

There are many Top Speed racers that disagree with your childish statement.

Painted the body up, shoo-goo'ed the first layer, looking good so far; hope to epoxy it up this week.

Thanks ,yes they did Marcus,Did not realize my a-arms were so bent out of shape.When i put the braces on it pulled everything level and flat.I then had to readjust my camber all around.A-arms are now flat and solid,nice bolt on option.The chassis braces are also very nice.They are light and gave me that solid feel that i like.Cheers Chris

GT8 or GT8LE? Are you going to run it on a track or you want to do some speed runs? If you are talking about the GT8 nitro car then check this thread out, you will find a active racing community and a lot of good info. Hope this helps!

Team C 1/8 GT car

I added a final touch to the back window so when you guys are checking out my GPS data you get the shocker at the same time lol!


Any of you guys play Virtual RC on your pc? I still kinda suck on there but it's a truly amazing rc simulator. Check it out, it really helps me drive better when I get to the track. Pretty realistic, check it out for free!

I'm deciding on a platform for a parking lot racer/high speed/6S giggle machine (its nice being forty-something and having a little money to spend on toys ). Any durability issues/weaknesses with this platform that have shown up? I have the option of converting my RC8B but would rather something more on-road oriented if the durability is there.
