Default Project: Help Mabuchi

Okay...I wanna help this dude. It may be partially his fault for posting the wrong things in the wrong places but its also partially our fault for not showing him the proverbial light. So I figure we can all put everything aside and help him out in getting a car.

Step One - Point him in the direction of a TC kit

Step Two - Getting him setup with a radio system

Step Three - Getting a good speed control under him

Step 1: The car

I figure everyone can post what they have to say about the car they are driving in this thread. If we can all get the info in one place we could probably help him out.

Okay, Lets start posting...Pictures are invited/encouraged....Now to go tape that new gear ratio chart in my parts box and listen to some Nirvana.....

Car 1: Evo 3 SL



This is the updated version of the Tamiya Evo3

This car has good acceleration, REALLY shines on flowing tracks. It had a little too much acceleration when I 1st started drving it. Gotta be smooth on the throttle

Based on your off-road driving style (point and shoot) I'd try and choose a smoother car to get used to the rigors of smooth driving. I felt a little bit out of my element driving this car myself because while I can steer REALLY smoothly I'm slighly heavier on the throttle. I've learned to over come that a little bit

Though I got to admit, My average finish with my TC3 was 13th...my adverage finish with the Evo3 SL is 3rd

If you have a smooth driving finger I'd highly suggest this car

I'll hopefully have an indoor track test of the TRF414M2 by Sunday

If you were to get a shaft car i would have to say get a barracuda r3 or a r2 w/xenon kit.

I suppose you're talking about Mabuchi540 from New Zealand. If so, how long does it actually take someone to decide on an RC car, heck !!

Duzzint matter if we start from scratch trying to help this dude, he'll just list this and that reason for not wanting this or that and finding too many alternatives to everything.

If you're referring to someone else, oops, my bad......I'd tell him to get a Tamiya Car for all the rights reasons. Choose between a TRF415, TBE3, or TA04-TRF.

Lets go !!

Even if the intent was good here, I think this is rather mean spirited.
