Ill bet ya a hundred bucks you are just using the wrong kind of solder. Go to radio shack, get 60/40 rosin core solder, and all your weak solder joints go bye-bye... you can pay me whenever.

Yeah, you're probably right, but I was using rosin core solder from radio shack. I think it might have been cheaper stuff though. Initially the main problem was the iron I had wouldn't get hot enough to melt solder all the way through a 12 gauge wire. Now I have one that does it easily, but I think I do still need to get some better solder.

Well I am impatient with painting at times... and i am definitely at hit and miss with tires. But I can drive once I get the lay of the track.

But the one thing that grinds my gears?

Stripped motor screws. At the heads and at the threads.

Also I despise cheaply made Allen Wrenches.

You losi guys will feel me....

After about 100 attempts, I've only managed to do it once.

Get all of the clutch pin screws out without stripping at least 1 head.

Gluing tires can be hit and miss for me. Trimming new bodies just sucks.
