This is my latest collection, The Hummingbird V.3:



I still do not have all the necessary electronics, namely the mixerboard.
Soon there will be a U-2 Unlimited Hydroplane ( the wifey wants that) a, Sailboat (for s&g ) and a Submarine (for myself).........

Its electric because of its size; 1/8 scale. I have seen the 1/8 gas powered ones and was close to buying one before. Alas the Boss ( the wife) said I am collecting too much gas stuff!

hehehehehehe
what a joke......

okay, ajg, for real....the jig is up. you had us playing along with your little game for way too long.....

He's probably laughing with his friends, "look, I'll make them believe I've got a 70 or 80 mph micro." Like that one other guy said, you can't fool any of us.

Besides, did anyone look at his list of things he bought for his micro? He's got a charger and an AM radio on there. This must be his first car. You'd think someone who dominated 1/10th scale TC would already have a charger or radio.

We should create a thread on here "Ask AJG" like there's one for all the pro's like Blackstock, Cyrul, Hodges....etc. After all, I'm sure AJG dominated those guys in TC. Perhaps one day when Blackstock, Cyrul or Hodges get to AJG's level, maybe they will give up modified TC and move 'up' to 1/18th micros.

Apparently when you get to that level, you don't need to know how to solder batteries or true comms......or shrink wrap. Didn't AJG take his cells to his LHS to shrink wrap for him? now THAT'S a pro!


For real, like Sean said: "This is the greatest thread ever."

Thanks!

You've had your "stuff" for a few days now, will we see a video now, your obviously a school kid, since it's the summer holidays, you must have loads of time to do stuff like rebuilding your micro.

Remember - put up, or shut up.

(at the moment seems like you've shut up )
I won all the races (including the A main). Actually I still haven't got my new connectors, which I need to run my car. Also, I can't reply when I'm in school.

This thread really moves. I just joined yesterday and I bet three pages have been added to this one thread since then.

I took my batteries to get them shrink wrap at my lhs because I DON'T have shrink wrap or a heat gun.

AJG..... you win all the races if you win the A-main. Running a B/C main are just qualifiers.....it is like the accumulation of your lap times to see if you qualify for a A main, a.k.a. the MAIN race. If you fail to qualify a B and C main with your lap times, you don't race the A main. If you lose a C main and win a B main, chances are you will either be in the back of the starting grid or not race a A main at all, because of your lap times.

But nevertheless, you must win (or at least come in second in a qualifing main) both mains to race an A Main. the A main is the race itself!


Somebody tell me if I am wrong here.

In any case, I'll wait till you get back from summer fun for a response
All I did was ask if I should use better magnets. And I posted the link for were you can get them. If you haven't figured out that I'm 16 yet, you have major problems. Also, I'm at school during the day, not having "summer fun".
