I hear you. If I can't sell it I'll probably just make it part of the fleet.

I'm down to like 15 rc's now since is just sold my 22 a while ago. Trying to decide if I even want another 2wd buggy as my OG b44 still kills it on indoor clay. I'd make my son work for it a little I mean by the time it's all said and done are you ready to buy him a $1000 basher tekno or durango or is he already a good driver? A cheap lcg slash vxl 4x4 can be a blast bang for your buck. Did you see team c is releasing a rally version of the gt8le witch is the Gt-v2e with a rally body. I'd love to see video of the rally version on the track lol. Jack it up and throw some ion's on it and let er eat! Lol bed time....

New releases from RCShox!
Final version of the ball bearing ackerman bar is complete!
"Finally here (well almost!) The RCShox ackerman bar cuts down much of the inherent "slop" that accumulates in the steering system. Not only that but bumpsteer is virtually eliminated as well as the inside pick up points altered. This results in much more mid corner grip and increased corner speed altogether. This is a must have upgrade for you track guys!

Kit comes with Bar, bearings, custom machined bearing spacers and hardware, everything you need for a complete installation!"


Lightened short shock towers:
"One pair of lightened shock towers. These shock towers allow the use of front shocks in the rear, add more front roll center adjustments and are designed with +1 shock positioning in the rear. The inside postion of the stock tower is eliminated and and extra one is placed on the outside, the new shock tower middle is the same as the old shock tower outside position. These shock towers weight exactly half of the stock towers!! bulkhead hardware is included (8 stainless screws) not the aluminum purple screws that are pictured. THE REAR SHOCK TOWER WILL ONLY WORK WITH FRONT SHOCKS."

Perfect timing! Literally just pulled my new joint out of the bag! Time for some building/painting/upgrades.

Has anyone ever seen or used the "The Quanum GPS Logger V2" unit to record top speeds?



http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._6_U_Blox.html

It only costs about $50 dollars, is this supposed to be more accurate than The Garmin GPS most everyone is using?

When I was looking for a GPS the quanum was not in stock so I went used garmin. I seriously doubt it's more accurite using the same free gps satellites but the price is right. If it is more accurate then its probably only by less than 1mph. For $50 I'd pick one up if I needed one. It does look like a pain to access your data, I dont like pulling my body to check my speed and push a bunch of buttons to see my data. I just like pulling up and looking in and trying it again.

Jspeed Have you got your car ready to rocket yet?

Well here is a pisser. Opened up my kit to see a rear shock body missing. O.G. RC8B front shocks appear to have the same body length. Might have to jump on that RCSHOX short shock rear setup.

+1 on RCShox parts! I love how the new parts turned my car into a serious cornering machine! Arm braces and two stage pistons ftw!

Keep up the good work Marcus!.... Also more body shells! Maybe Porsche GT3 Cup, NSX, definitely SLS AMG!

I did and I'm sure they will take care of it.

The RCB fronts mount up and would look right at home if they didn't have so much "patina" on them. Will take some tuning to get the balance right but shiz happens.

I had a couple of deals fall through so its karma for this one to stay. With the development work/upgrades going on there should be plenty to keep me interested.

Need to get a GT8 scene going in Tampa. We have outdoor clay and indoor carpet but not much in the way of on-road.
