Default Did you guys ever check it out.

Guys;

Did you ever check out my thread "Pennies for battery bars"? should be a page or two back. I thought it was pretty funny stuff when I wrote it. What started me off was some guy on another board bragging about his Plywood suspension arms and some guy that burned up his parents basement while working on his R/C stuff.

Somebody actually made plywood suspension arms? That'd be funny in nitro, sounds like a fire hazard.

P.S. popsracer, since you plug your batteries into the wall, and are having overheating problems (hence the pan), maybe you should simply charge those batts underwater! Just plug 'em in, and dunk them into the bathtub. It'll solve ALL your overheating problems.....

SWEET! You took my idea and took it up a step. While those batteries are charging, blow on them with the hairdryer underwater. Now I'm not sure how well this might work, so tell me once you've tried it.

Default That's stupid....

You can't charge a battery directly from the wall outlet...




The wall mains is AC. You need DC to charge your battery.

And plunging the battery into a tub of water is not good method of preventing overheat. Every body knows metal is better conductor.

Use mercury. Liquid metal baby.

Seriously though,

Why don't somebody run a copper trace within them CF chasis, ala PCB. That way you don't need them unsightly wires to hook up everything. All you need is a piece of jumper to connect those ESCs to the chassis then pickup the power for the motor at the other end of the trace.

You can etch a loop on the top plate so you won't be needing an antenna. The top plate will be the antenna... You can solder a capacitor standing up or laying down the chassis. Better yet, open up that Novak, desolder everything and mount them direct to the chassis. Do the same for the receiver.

Need to charge batteries? just clamp that charger on the shock towers. Remember, the red wire goes to the front tower and Black wire on the rear tower.

Should be nice and compact.

HUH???

TRF512;

You too smart me me.

BAD BAD!! Idea to put hair drier in bath water. Drier start sparking and smoking, lights in house go off. Good thing I don't get in water yet.
I think I borrow battery from Da's motorbike and try in car. Maybe work better as is more valts than RC batereries. A little heaveyer. but extra pounds keep car stuck to ground better. Better charge first with lamp cord. Make car go faster.

Default Dont Forget to...

shake that lead-acid battery before using.... mixes up the electrolyte to produce full power. Try attaching bigger spoilers. Them wings make your car go faster just like F1 and Sprint cars.
