Default one more suggestion

If you do not want to get ranked on in the first place than why did you make a post about a radio shack car, this page isn't about low riding hidrollick hopping cars, it is about on road racing.


Do you understand what i am trying to tell you?

You bent over with a sign that said "KICK ME" so we did.

Man, seems like every single Radio Shack store is like that!!! I think if they sold Gum, they couldn't explain how to use it.

Some of you guys make it hard to enjoy cars... Thats pretty immature for some "serious" competitors.... but hey... no big deal... Ill still keep modding my cars.

My old man and I were pretty big in these cars in the early/ mid 90's.... It took alot of time to get cars to run true every time... none of this RTR stuff but should I look down on someone that buy's a pre assembled kit? Or has a 6 year old chassis? Wtf does that prove to anyone? Just makes you look like an ass....


Eather way... thanks to those that have helped so far. I havent really gotten the answers I really need, but Im doing my homework and teaching myself what to look for...

Had some problems today with the 67 while hopping. The top a arm plate busted off on one side so Im making one from aluminum. I hope to have some pics of it soon... but have been to busy on 1/1 cars to play with my toys.

Works pretty good so far but gotta get some high tq servo's to improve whats on so far.

If anyone has a set of 1/10 Wire Wheel rims PLEASE lmk what you want for them.... Anything can be bashed or chipped except the spoke/ hub area...

Thanks

Why would anyone who was thinking about getting into RC actually decide to do it when they get on this board and gets made fun of and bashed. I agree that it is highly immature and it is making some of you look like complete fools. This is a hobby which I for one would like to see grow and expand. If we treat potential hobbyist and racers the way you guys are on this board then there's not much chance of that happening.

DJ, I have plenty of rims but not the kind you're looking for. Sorry. I'm thinking they'd be too big for your car anyways.

DJ- for your project I would look into a Multiplex Profi-car radio it has 7 channels. Go ahead and replace the reciever, speedo, and steering servo aong with your 3 wheel servos. Even easier to use wou;d be an airplane radio (stick) I would get at least a 6 channel radio so you could have 1 servo dedicated to each wheel. Look into Tamiya servo savers, they have multiple mounting holes for the tie-rods and 3 springs to change the tension which will allow you to not need any shocks. Reversing speedos can be had for as little as $30, just make sure you get one with a brake....

Also spend the extra cash on high speed and high torque servos, and make sure you get metal geared ones.......... This car will never be worth what you put into it, but hey you will definately have the coolest "hopin' hooptie" ever built........ HMMM maybe I will do something like that with the spare TC3 I have?????

Pegausus Hobbies has them. They also sell complete R/C low rider kits that will do just about everything the full size cars can.

Thank you very much... Pretty crazy how this hobby seems to have gone down hill. We had 12 cars with an average of 1g in each and two custom 6ft+ weed wacker powered boats. We NEVER would bash another racer or hobbiest in this way. We had the fastest and best engionered cars at that time in our area and won many trophys in Canada for friendship games.... Dont hate because I want to have fun.

Any wheel wont be to big.... Im just cutting the wheel pattern out and sticking it to my old hub. Heres pics for example





If you want, feel free to look in this folder... then make fun of the cars.... http://www.e-zone.nl/jevries/ Theres some sweet vids of stuff working.

Thanks for the sugestions! I would love to get all that stuff but if I did I would buy a good chassis lol... These cant take to much punishment. Ive had to start bracing spots with aluminum but it working out nicely.

I will keep in mind the electronics sugested tho... sounds like a fun project. This one is nice for me because of its price. I want to keep it low buck. Btw.... You should build a car! If your not happy with it sell it on ebay! People pay $200+ for non rolling 1/10 hoppers..... win win eather way..... might help getting rid of some spare parts from the junk box

Thanks for the link... Ive found them at a couple spots online but dont need new ones really. Id rather ruin an old set.

Default Hey DJ,

Since your name says you live in minasota, well last time i was there i went to the mall of AMERICA, and they had like three different hobby shops, one of them had all of the kind of stuff that you are looking for, like modle cars wheels and gold plated rims, and all of that kind of pimp stuff for the modle cars with hidrolics.

Hey man i am sorry for bashing on you, most of the stuff that people say is just a joke man you can't take stuff that seriously man.

Any one who want's to be in the r/c hobby is my friend whether the car costs $1500.00 or, $15.00. you are a friend of mine.

I am sorry like i said for bashing on you man, well chack all of those stores out and tell me what you found.

Good luck man.
