dgraham225- i actually just made some of these out of 303 stainless the other night, i think i made like 30-40 of them. i can see how many i have, should have at least 20 of them. i ran them on one of my cnc lathes with a barfeeder attached, did not take very long. i even ran some smaller ones too

During the last 2 rounds at dartfordracetrack at the badlands challenge ive had nothing but problems,

Runaways
Dead servos
Dead batteries
Dead starterbox

etc....

Still had a good time mind thanks to the people there but it cheesed me off to be honest

Well ive taken drastic action to stop it happening ever again (fingers crossed)

Replaced the switch with deans connectors
Replaced the battery with a lipo
Replaced the servo with another ace (not in pic yet)
Replaced starterbox with nice spanky grey one

Then i needed a new shell after the runaways wrecked the other one

Cue rmv shell and i was supplied with some groovy stickers from www.Rcnut.com (aka carlos)

And the rework began....

The results are below needless to say im happy with it









Hope you like it as much as me

Heck, I got so frustrated with nitro I sold all my nitro stuff.

Did pick up a 1/8 scale MBX5 brushless though!


Question: I am removing some old parts, and need advice on the best way to get stuck set screws (not stripped) out of the axles. thinking I will have to heat them up again, especially if the previous owner had red loctited them.
