There," see theres a comma" There Ihave justified my posting oh I pay the local idiot to mow my lawn but if you need the work.
Sounds like I need to run at your track. It would be like taking candy from a baby. Are there any money races scheduled at your track?

Now as for the LRP end, how about those neos . Or the q2's or how about the hush hush recall the 7.1's that would litterly set themselves on fire. They wouldn't tell anyone but if you sent it back they would replace it for a nominal fee. Seems like the american designers are pusing way to hard to produce cutting edge technology that they are not ready for yet and still put it out just to have the newest technology on the track.

Ok back to it, sorry any pull start out there is pretty much junk and I can't blame AE for it. Also they don't make the carbs, just buy and install them in the kit. You really cant blame AE for it.


OH yeah, I'd probably say Cliff Lett, or how about even a guy for a associated sister company yokomo. You know Masami when he drove 12l's.
What?

The car should have been engineered to drive without any substantial weight added. I gave up. Now, Associated cars seem to be the dominant force in 2wd classes the world around. Guess what??? What works for one, does not work for all. The problem with the car as I see it is that this car works with top level drivers that can drive on the edge much better than I can. That IS how it was designed.
Apparantly all people from Columbus are idiots? You should buy a traxxas!

1fsttraxxas: I think you've found the wrong thread by accident! :::LMAO:::

I would be willing to bet a lot that the day most of the people on this site took a Traxxas Rustler to a race track is the day pigs would fly out their ASS!

Don't mean to offend anyone, but Traxxas is just as cheap as any other company and their cars should be left in the backyard, not the racetrack (this does not count the REVO).

BrianHackett: You're right, Associated cars are designed for the best drivers, so when the average guy gets ahold of it, the car needs a little work to be perfect. Both the Associated and Losi cars are great, but I would take a Losi over it's counterpart any day, just because of parts support and consistency.

Just my .02

twalker, take that 4 Tec and jam it straight up your ass!!!!! Obviously, you are full of s**t about being a 5 time champ, if you're buying cars like a 4 Tec and an RTR GT. I bet you've never even been to a real track, you probably just race around your backyard and call yourself a "regional champ"...........People like you really piss me off............

You should really try to get all that sand out of your vagina, GROW UP, and quit posting on here and making yourself look stupid.

Mine and my little brother's are problem free so far. Well, at least until mine slammed into a pole. I now see problems in my future.

I just have to laugh. I was into nitro 10 years ago, and it sucked. Pull starts breaking, one way bearing breaking. So, I get back into RC and 10 years later, they still can't make a pull start that doesn't break. Unreal, it's 2005 for **** sake.

So glad I picked electric. No offense.

You guys really should be a little nicer to twalker. He's gonna win a Darwin award some day. I can't wait to read about it. Should be a classic.
