I will post pics of the set up this coming weekend so you can see it. You don't need a million cells to go fast.

Yes, I have a TC3 I drag race too it's my sleeper for the big mouths who think they have fast cars.
Nice! I have 2 TC3's, they are a great car. Easy to maintain too.

Thats how I started drag racing back in 2001 with my 6 TC3s. It's a sickness I'm down to 2 TC3's. But I will post the pics any way for you this coming weekend. It's not a problem. Thats one thing I don't do is story tell I like to show what I do...

Now trjracing, Thanks for all the pics and help on the car. What I'm going to do is finish of this drag car that is sitting besides me. If I get it done today, which I should, I will post some pics and I will also try posting a video. Thanks again, it was good talking to you, talk to you later

Just by seeing some of my pictures on this forum you know I have a passion for drag racing and what I do. I've worked in a hobbyshop for almost 6 years, I've been R/Cing since I was 7 years old and I'm going on 30 years old. Thats how long I've been in this game plus my many other hobbies.

I will post some pics asap as I have finished the car. The only problem is the rear axle is made of 2 steel pieces and I need to weld them together before I run it. So once there welded I will take it for a run and let you know how it goes. But in the meantime I will take some pics and post them on here.
Cya, Paul

Here are the pics of my homemade dragster. Right now it doesn't have steering, I will put it on in the future. The rear end is complete and fully adjustable. I made it in about 5 hours total. You may think it can be done in 30mins but it takes time if you want quality.

The quality of the pics aren't the best, sorry guys.

What do you think guys? Did I do a good job?

If nobody has realised, the wheels are offroad!

Also you might think that the electrics are cheap. Thats because they are.

The esc is a cheap $30, the motor is a stock $10. So yeh. But, I will be putting better electrics, this was just to make sure the car works before I go any further.

There are more pics coming.
