I use good old shoe goo for bodies when they start to crack. Just apply it on the inside, let it dry and you're all set.

Mesh drywall tape and shoe goo. It's like an even lower tech version of fiberglass.

I KNEW IT!!! Well, at least I think I know. The US TCS rules had an empty category showing earlier this year for a "MINI GT" class. I think they're planning on having a TCS class for BL minis!

I use body reinforcing tape which duratrax makes, but apparently its just the mesh which you use with fibreglass (i think thats right).
I stick it onto the front inside of the body with shoe goo before i start using it. Which will make the body last heaps longer.

Ooops yeah what monkeyracing said :P

Tamiya #53597 are the universals right? Which one are the CVDs?

Blue chassis? Ha! If you win Mini 50 you'll get a REAL chrome one (the last one left) as 1st prize...
So what other tires are the go for the 50?

Default speddie

TFG,
A "speddie" is a small electronic device that operates a RC vehcile to make it move under its own power, normally by batteries. Eg "It sped away in that direction" or "It is fully sped, man"
The other meaning is "One who comes from the planet Speedo, those that walk around and smuggle Budgies"
.............. OK I spelt it wrong, but it is a good storey on the speed control from Tamiya to go with their brushless motors

Hey, what you Aussies do on your own time is your business. We Canadians are staying out of it. (Like we always do!)

Of course, if you say anything bad about our beer...
