there are a couple 4st conversions. ive read about them in japan. mostly 1/5th tho. and a while ago i read up on a magazine about a 4cylinder monster truck. so a custom one isnt impossible. and im sure youve heard about turbos. super charged trucks.

id like a tool to straighten all bent axles

That will work for a nitro system with an onboard electric starter. The trick is for the starter to engage the engine with less that 5 volts......add a micro switch controlled on the 3rd channel......


Could add 4 sub c batteries and do like the electric drag cars; use the micro switch to engage the starter.....but that adds weight.

EDIT: forgot about the glow plug, you have to drop the voltage down to accomendate the glow plug, or it will toast it at 5 volts.

I wish there was a home anodizing machine, and also a machine that I could stick my carbon fiber chassis in and it would perfectly sand and glue all the edges including the batt slots. And last but not least, I wish there was an affordable full option Pro 4 (I know that the 205 edition is coming out though so I am ok.)

As far as turning your car off and on from your radio,Tekin had the turning off from your radio done in the 90's.The speed controller was the 411p..i think,it was the key pad one,That was one of the best speed controlers..no one has one out now that does all the stuff that speed controller did.

It was the 410K actually, and it played the theme from close encounters when you turned it on. I always wanted one of those...

I think the SX9 would turn itself off if you left the brake on for like 5+ seconds or so too.

Pressurized shocks that were also externally adjustable...that didn't use shock oil I have a dampner like this already, but no spring or mounting system...yet

You can do a search and find anodizing setups fairly cheap, in the $200-300 range if I remember right.

Where would I search for these things, and how well do they work?

Just search online, they should work as good as a regular anodizing place would once you get the hang of it.

I can't find any, but I found a kind of local place that can anodize. I will give them a call next week.

By the way Randy, do you have any pictures of the XXX-S that you are running now?

And I wish r/c tech didn't have guys on here than either cut down the tread starters or make jokes about others lack of knowledge.
