I think all electric racers would quit first before they add fuel to their electric cars.

The technology isn't quite there yet for comsumer electronics but is right on the horizon.
No more fading at the end of a race as the hotter the fuelcell gets the better it works then just top it up with methanol(for a methanol fuelcell) and you are ready again

Done


Spektrum does this when you bind your receiver to the Module just keep full brake engaged and when the binding process is finished you have a great failsafe...
I tested it the other day...
Full speed down the straitaway....shut off the radio the car came to a screeeeeeching halt.
It did take about one second but it did work.
I think Nitro guys will benifit from this new tech...
Now to just justify it to the wife....
Oh yea honey see I won't have to by a failsafe now so I will actually save money by buying a spektrum and a new Helios/3Pk/M8 whatever....
See if that one flys....LOL

nimble: correct...

But, sell them for $5-$15....

Still a great value to racers and you will make 10x-30x's profit....

Anyone who would build a reliable counting system(cheaper) that works with the current software programs would cash in!!!!!!

Anyway, there can be a lap counting system that transmit realtime track data to your transmitter screen......so you can know how well you did instead of a printout........

Liquid masking in a spray can that only takes a single coat and dries as fast as paint.

Body shells with masks already applied so you can just spray one color, peel off mask and spray next color...instant flame job.

The ability to cheaply print my own vinyl stickers at home.

Companies HAVE to make their products wear out after a while otherwise they'd go out of business OR it would cut into their profits.

Remember...products that last a good long time either have to cost alot of money these days...or they don't get made.

A sad truth is that in the 21st Century, there is no such thing as a good / high-quality inexpensive product like in the 1930s / 1940s.
Gotta love designed obsolesence....

AMB is way ahead of you here. All the current software providers were forced to sign an agreement with AMB that their software can't work with other systems.

I had heard that, but I thought Autoscore & Rc Scoring Pro worked with the KO system also.

I will check my versions.

...

I believe that those style of rims went away because of the added rotating mass. They wheels had to be re-inforced for the screw points, and this made them impracticle for racing. It's why eventually you only saw the 3 piece rims on the "sport" versions of the rc10 series, never the "team" kits. They never worked that well in high traction situations either. I remember the beads on the tires always breaing loose in hard cornering. If you really wrenched down on the screws for a tight fit you'd strip out the soft rim material.

Of course, now materials are much more advanced, so maybe someone could take another stab at it.... I know that gluing tires is one of my personal banes of this hobby.

Default Real Dyno!

How about a real car dyno! only for 1/8 to 1/18th scale cars, where you actually strap the car down to the dyno with certain motor, gearing batteries/nitro, and see what your real horsepower & torque, you are putting to the wheels!
