Don't take this the wrong way cause I can tell you know what you're talking about and have some knowledge about RC, but this forum is meant to offer help to newbies who get into RC and need some much needed answers from the oldheads.

I will be the first one to apoligize for dissin you, but I can tell you didn't appreciate it and you deserved it for being prickish. Now put yourself in CEN's place. BigSquadRacer and Owen RaCing are exactly right about people getting out of hand on these forums.

I must say IMHO that it IS NOT a legit question to ask "how to clean under the radio and battery box,under the engine,under the fuel tank and in the shocks without taking everything apart?????"

To me it seemed silly or one of those stupid thread started just to elicit response and start arguments --- and I answered it accordingly, telling the truth (NO!) but being coy and funny about it. Unfortunately you chimed in and attacked me and yet did the same obnoxious behavior you accused me of. You were not only wrong in doing so, but uncool as well.
If you didn't get my joke, or care for it, you should have just moved on and ignored it.

BigSquadRacer and Owen RaCing are exactly right --- but you attacked me!

You say you were being funny and joking and I attacked you, then fine, my bad. However the next time you see a question that you think in your humble opinion is silly, although there is no such thing as a stupid (or silly) question if you don't know the answer, then work on your sense of humor and get funnier so everyone else on the forum doesn't think you're being a dick and you won't get unfairly attacked the way I did you. Seeya at the track.

Somehow you must have missed that day of hometraining where it's taught that calling someone out for what you rationalize as them being a dick accomplishes nothing other than you being a dick too.
Go ahead and jump down Ian next --- he was being funny too.
Take a chill pill dude. That being quick to anger thing surely can't help your racing.

pardon me, but there's nothing to read if no one knows what you're saying because you don't know what you're spelling
