A Very interesting statement. Here is what I want you to do:

1) Go to your Local Hobby Shop and buy a 1/4" x 1/16" Brass strip.

2) Cut it into 2 pieces.

3) While holding a BRASS strip in each Hand, insert them fully into each slot of a Wall Socket.

4) Take notes of the result on post them on R/C-Tech.

Try some wd40. I got some old dried up tyres in a trade with a car and after shooting some wd40 on them they looked great and worked pretty well. But you can't fix cracks.

actually you could glue the cracks with CA. I have fixed tears this way. But if they are old enough to crack they will probably just crack in another spot.

Hey I just found a new way to true the comm! On any ac/dc charger just put the 2 alligator clips on the comm while you have the charger charging and then rub it up with a penny but after that you have to run it for about 10 seconds. now my comm is shinnier then when it was new.

I'm not THAT dumb. atleast were studying mitosis (division of cells) NOT metal

traxxasdude;

You try out the Brass Strip experiment yet?

To RE-Com a Motor, you need to POUND a Penny round into the shape of the Com. A Pencil is about the right size. Then just solder on the new piece(s) and RE-true in a Com Lathe (a Diamond bit works best).

i'd just like to say that the wd40 on you tires works nice, it softens up tires like new.
if the cracks are big and coming apart, use shoe gue or silcone to stick it down.
so use shoe gue to fix the cracks and wd40 to soften.
this should get your car going while you save for some new ones, cause nothing lasts forever. i presume this is just a fun car and not a racing machine right? anyway let me know how you get on.
btw 've never used shoe gue on tires.

I don't truly re-comm it I just renew it. I keep the penny in its current shape and rub it on the comm while applying presure. It seems to remove the used layer and replace it with a new copper layer. When you first run it lots of sparks fly but hten they settle down.
