Default Name one thing....

...rc related that you can not do despite the fact that you have done it so many times.

For myself, I can not glue tires worth a damn.

Same here after years of rc racing I too hit and miss on tire gluing. Every other set I glue comes out perfect.

Thats what I cant get either. I know there are a bunch of calculators and whatnot, it just goes in one ear(eye in this case?) and out the other.

Brushless motors.

I finally broke down when I got my XFactory SCX-60 and picked up a Novak Havok/17.5, and I still have yet to see what the big deal is about. Between all the adjustments and programming and menus, it's been no less work than my brushed motors were, and if something blows up on it there's nothing I can fix. All I can do is get it warranty swapped out for a new one and wait for that to blow up in my face.

Soldering. More than half the time I can't get a solid connection. Sometimes it looks good, but then I get cogging or a wire pops right off. I completely destroyed the case for my RS pro from the iron slipping off the posts. It's been better since I bought a weller soldering gun, but I still suck at it.
