Hopefully you had him do-up a body without the nitro cut-outs...you know...for the electric conversion. Bob Lovell did a very good job converting his

Default HOT BODIES DURABILITY IN QUESTION?

Broke an A-Arm and sheared offf two of the cvd pins last night during testing. Maybe Gixxer was right....might have to wait for the RC8BE to arrive

I'm good Isaac.


Hopefully I get out of work (real job) early enough today to head to the track.

That's exactly why I had him paint 2 of them. The wife is driving me nuts because she just stopped smoking...should be over it in another week or so.

Bob, I believe that is a heat sink to the electric motor. Morris' car must be geared extremely high!

I know, I just try to help out when I can.

I got fresh red clay/dirt coming mid week. It is coming along though. I am redesigning the 24' of newest section.

I am also back to work at my "REAL" job too. 20 square roof first part of week and setting trusses, sheeting and roofing a 56' x 80' single family home now.
