We are just playin with ya. Do whatever makes you feel better. You had to expect some ridicule after all this is RC tech. A few months ago someone was having tuning issues and one guy told him the bearings in his muffler were bad and he went nuts thinking about how he was going to get his pipe apart to change his muffler bearings. It's all in good fun

After 2 years on here I have read some of the funniest stuff.
One guy filled his bulkheads with diff fluid instead of putting it inside his diffs. He was asking how to stop it from leaking all over his car.
Another guy drove his buggy underwater and wanted to know why it wasn't working anymore. RC tech is a prime source of entertainment for sure.

There was this one guy who took his chassis to a bench grinder to make it look pretty.....

Damn when I first started I exploded one of my buggies running it at 400 degrees and hitting a curb which cracked the tank and splashed Nitro on the 400 degree engine, I also crashed into myself doing circles around my feet at WOT in a parking lot..4 stitches in my ankle..We all have our tales of stupid shit..It sure is an expensive learning curve though

ha ha that 400 degree engine reminds me of my go engine when i first started. the case cracked and i was new so i didnt really know to much, let a driver who used go at the time tune it he couldnt get it. well i was in my main and we had a 1 min call, and i notice my engine not acting right, we started i was in the lead and about 2 laps in i go down the straight braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. its smoking they said it was on fire im like NOOOOOO i went tore my body off someone temped the engine and it was like 462 or something like that. that was a bad day

another go engine caught on fire at the pit. had a bad radio which caused a run away right at the start of my main, it was on the starter box so my dad grabbed the car and slammed it on the ground which broke a tooth on the clutch bell and it sparked and my car was on fire
