Steve you do have an "understanding" partner, I would be made to stay up for the rest of the day and look after the kids, as happened with the World Cup!

Jasper just saw the photo of the smashed car and said: Dadda I did that when I bumped into your car." BUMPED!!

Default club challenge

Default Motor problems

What is it with me and motors and shit,
Vacuum cleaner packed up, lucky I bought extended warranty with it I thought
bullshit, it fails 1 week past the extended warranty period,
Take it apart and the brushes are worn and commutator melted,
I ask you what more can I do than buying a good brand cleaner (Nilfisk) buy extended warranty and still
4 years for motor brushes??????
makes you think twice before buying a second hand model
I know it's not RC related but I had to vent and it will probably give TWISTED people a laugh (you know who you are)
Really looking forward to racing on Sunday, Stock or Mod?????.
Night all



Can't wait for the first BRUSHLESS vacuum cleaner

Ahh you need the Miele. Good German design and manufacturing and I'm pretty sure I remember reading it had a brushless motor. None of that nancy pancy sandinavian stuff for us, just brute German power!!!!

Maybe I should pull it apart and chuck the motor into the B4, wouldn't have any weight issue at least!

By the way went to St Ives today, the triple isn't as bad as I thought, not really much longer than our table top, and it has a nice angle to the jump.

Steve, you can't be going to bed when the Mighty Boosh is on SBS?!?!

Goodnight all.

Hey Nick, i had two TA03 TRF cars, one i built the other still new in box.

I sold them for next to nothing when i was insane for a while and thought i didn't like RC cars anymore. . .

What on earth was i thinking .

Ouch that's a bit more bling than the one I'm getting! Maybe I can make it that way though

Wow Wayne, very professional pics, must be an expensive camera.
Hi there,

I really need to get on here more often,

I am just getting the hang of this camera, I was lucky to pick up a nice Nikon D200, so now it is only the guy behind it if the photos are bad.
get some more practice in before the club series, hope to get good pics there.

Might see you all at the track on the weekend, need to put my cars back together first.

Wayne
