I get my 6 posts per day because I know a whole lot about RC cars, so I answer a whole lot of questions, and talk in a lot of different forums... Calling you a post whore was just an observation, not meant to piss you off like when a kid spits on your rc car.

There was also a time when I was at school with wmy tl-01 and a 3rd grader on a bike was following it (I didn't notice because I was looking at it when it was about 2 feet away) when I slowed down to check that all of the tires were on when she ran over it . and you would think she would have learned but she did the same thing again .

Did THIS girl do it intentionally? Hey Randman, like I said before, wisdom comes with age. I'm not a good example of this theory [in the bad way]. If I had enough time I could post as much as you, because I know TONS about my extreme obsession. Maybe not as much as you. How many vehicles do you own and what are they?

I tried my XX-4 with a 21 pinion yesterday. I hit the curb and it flew 3 ft. high and 9 ft. forward. It was probably going around 40-45. And I still haven't broken anything.

how many bodies have you gone through? I wish the rustler was that tough. When I crashed into the curb the bellcrank steering broke. One week later I am still waiting for the draglink

I'm still using the original body. The curb around here isn't straight up and down, it curves, forming a perfect suicide jump.

It causes chassis scrape really bad and screws up your jump if you don't do it perfectly. The car is playing some sort of Russian Roulette. Hence the term, "suicide jump."

Does anyone know about how motor timing affects performance? I'd like to know about this. I want that little "edge" on the competition.

the timing will give you more speed but less run time.
