You can use the paypal virtual mastercard. Paypal will give you a uniques mastercard number to buy things at online shops. Your limit is the balance of your paypal account.

Here is an article explaining it:

I do not see the point in having the hoods cocked where the center is touching. I would rather have the hoods straight across from each other....but hey what do i know ive only run slot drags for 3 or 4 years and done 0-92 in .621 sec with a ceramic mag motor...now thats fast

Ask Jim Deiter, Mike Reedy or Big Jim............easily 3 of the best motor guys in the WORLD.........and they will all tell you when aligning brush hoods, especially in a stock motor, you HAVE to take into account the brush cocking.......its just part of the deal........

Slot cars motors are a completely different animal........yer comparing an apple to an orange....

Forgive me, if this question have been been asked before, but can someone please enligthning me on the method of brush hood alignment?

I thought it only was a matter of getting the hoods/brushes to work smooth AND align them so they were in the same straight line. But as far as I understand this topic, it's not always good to have them in a straight line? How do I find out what's the best for my motor?

I'm racing on a quite tight and technically track, so torque is more important than speed.

I'm only concerned about stock motors.

Thanks.

While I love this site, I hope Shane forgives me.....

But you REALLY should check out Big Jim's forum at www.rccars.com .....make sure you read through the stuff before asking questions, as pretty much EVERYTHING you can imagine to ask has been asked and answered.....Jim is a great guy, but he kinda gets annoyed when people ask repeat questions. There is a GREAT post by Neomags(a forum regular) on how to SEARCH for stuff.....best to read it before you spend a bunch of time.

I would also reccommend picking up a good bar, like the one Jim sells on his site www.bigjimracing.com , the KT unit also looks good, though I have not used one.......they are a reputable company that stands behind the stuff they sell, so its probably safe to say yer in good hands....

I would also get a Integy 4.5mm Nut driver for spring posts....its pretty much the only unit out there that works good with no modifications.....plus they are inexpensive.

Also grab a fiddlestick to measure spring tension(a MUST) and a copy of Jim's Black Book.....(a must in my opinion)....both available through Jim's site.

The key with motors is to take your time and not rush stuff.....try different stuff.....you never know when you will stumble onto something new that works.....
