if your living in a an apartment alone, and you have your r/c's hanging on your walls, you may have a hard time keeping women from leaving your apt early.

The nose down thing is to help prevent moisture or any leftover fuel in the engine from pooling up in the case & gumming up the works.

what do you use to hang em' do you need to remove the wheels or just lay them flat with 4 wheels touching the wall?

I used to use those J hooks ment for bicycles you get them at home depot type stores. Put the hooks close together because they will deform the arms esp if you keep them in the garage(hot).Does it just like shocks bend arms when sitting on the wheels in garage or truck.

I use those J hooks and hang my cars up in the garage, but I hang my car from the rear wing mount. no arm distortion from that.

Thanks for the info. Im sure ive thought about the consequences of this but never actually thought about it when it was needed. Couldn't hanging them nose up also do the same thing though?

-Thanks

Yes....imo storing them Nose down is asking for a leaky front bearing...fuel is extremely corrosive when left over a long period and Can cause issues....i store my car's level on 40 series MT wheel's and make sure if the motor's aren't being ran for more then a couple weeks they get Torn down and stored in baggies.

I see now problem hanging 1/10th scale stuff as they tend to have stiff arms and whatnot.

But alot of 1/8th scales use rubbery plastic for the arms that can warp. Tuned flex warpage.

I store my 1/8th's on a flat surface with the tires off. That way the arms are't hanging, for the winter I'll probally remove the shocks as well.

I use to hang mine with the big J hooks. I did not see any problems if tanks were emptry and using ARO. I did not experience and arms becoming weak from storing this way. It was a good management of space for the number of cars I have


I have however switched to shelves. It is easier to retrieve and place the cars. Only problem now is I need another shelf. This photo is out dated and missing 1 Slash, 2 Losi's and an Xray. I think I may have problem
