Default Things U'd like to see made?

hey may seem a bit odd but u know those ideas uve had to make life (while rc racing) easier but a company has never made? well lets here em.
a few of mine;
a car stand that pivots and has a mount for my much more tire warmers controller (3080) that way u dont need to take up bench space and have wires going every which way.

ive seen perspex set up boards when some one gonna machine a part tray in corner there 16mm thick im sure u could mill 10mm out??

thermoelectric battery cooler u know the much more motor cooler? why not make a battery cooler? be great could probaby charge at 7 amps imagine the voltage and fried motors
no im not a company rep im actually 17 and love rc racing and making stuff as the schuie guys know so far ive mad a stand to balance my car on a string line
oh as a quick tip any one wanting tire carriers? pringles containers u know the chips? perfect tape em up so no one knows or just fool ur friends
cheers all let here ur ideas or tips

Default 2-Piece Pneumatic Rims

I last saw them as an upgrade product for kyosho buggies. The rims came together to clamp the tire in place and it was screwed in place by 4 screws. A wee bit heavier than normal rims but nonetheless it was a great way to save on rims.

In practice, 4 of these rims could get a person through tons of tyres and insert combinations, without the need for superglue. Aluminium will not be my material of choice though, I'm thinking magnesium or titanium or adamantium or even unobtainium! Once testing is done, then the tyres are glued to standard racing rims to save on rotating mass.

To carry it to the extreme, I envision one day thet we might just be able to pump compressed air into these tires to vary the air pressure.

Just dreaming.

I would like to see a pro, lightweight, compact, mount and suspended lcd video camera system and a new racing class for remote camera racing.

It wouldn't be hard to d0, the video could be sent through a tiny transmitter in a modified receiver. and the camera could be a tiny 1 ccd 320x240 type.

It would only need a little battery power and a 5" flip up lcd screen would be added to the control.

Front Wheel Drive or are you refering to AWD All Wheel or 4 Wheel drive???

Put a 1-way in the front, you now have no braking to the front and an e-brake....

a pit stand with vice like clips to hold the chassis down, and that and angle it'self so that you can work on the tip while sitting in your chair or stool.

Hey matt I've actually been thinking of doing that for a long time. I would put the top shock mounts on a little track and then have a servo to pull it down then up.

yes, but when you look through a camera and try to drive one, you quickly realize how fast these things are going! one time, we hooked up a camera in a car, and watched it on the track, no way you could drive it full speed through the camera





personally, id like to see quick changes hubs and batteries, so we can have easier enduro races
