I have MRC superbrain 959.
It surely can charge 3000mHa NiMH packs ok though I guess not as well as Novak millenium or other high end chargers.
Too much false peak.

I think at least I need a decent discharge to keep batteries in good shape.
Is Trinity tray discharger good?
Does it have cut off switch?

Wow, winter olympic has started.

When are we going to see RC TC competing in the olympics.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

It's no good having Kinwald's set up. It's his thumbs you need!

I prepare my own car (I am 55 years old and have built and raced some successful real cars, so I know a bit about setting a race car up). I also prepare my son's RC car. Josh is 18. He is perfectly capable of doing it but couldn't be bothered. If anything my cars are usually even more spot on than his.

Yet in a 5 minute race he laps me.... usually TWICE, and I usually end up 4th or 5th, so it's not as though I'm miles off the pace.

It's the thumbs....and the brain that sends those important messages to those thumbs, that matters most.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Hey MR4-Malta, what brand rod ends are those on there? Was there any location where you had a hard time getting them to fit?

Sweet car.

He really loves blue thing. Even springs are all blue.

Yah, where did you get those rod ends?
I may need new ones when I buy ti turnbuckles.

I just rebuilt my TC3 using graphite parts and aluminum screws.

It takes complete rebuild, I finished it at 2:45 in the morning.

They are seriously lighter. I would recommend anybody racing to replace any composite or steel parts immediately.

Weight saving of chassis alone seems to make big difference.
And cool blue color.

While rebuilding it I found out about million binding problems and corrected.

I can't wait to try it out at the track.

BTW, is Malta south of Italy?

This is the best 'high performance part' that you can get for your car. A complete overhaul and correction of any binding point.

Default which transponder mount is better

Here is one way to mount my transponder.

Its pretty hard to take the transponder out and put it in...but theres no way that it can fall out.

heres the other way

easier to take on and off...but it could rub the driveshaft if it moves (it doesnt rotate easily). Its kinda resting on the battery strap.

Which ones do you guys think. Thanks.

Doesn't it fall out?
