I'm back for some more fun. Well, rcca e-mailed me back and said I could do an article on my car, but I want someone else to do it, so you guys will believe them, since you don't believe me. Is there any other mag that will do an article and test the car? I was thinking rc driver.

Gundam: Your crystal thing helped improve my range, so right now I'm not worried about that.

Sorry, but I don't know what dyno my motor was dynoed on.

Also, about insurance or something (Liam_Davies), there is absolutely no one around.

It gets even funnier!


I just spun my empty Pepsi bottle and it spins at 75,000rpm. I used my eyeball as the dyno.

AJG -

I have recently started writing articles for RCU Magazine. I am also trying to get a couple of UK magazines let me publish articles. If you want i will do it for you, but I won't be able to use the radar gun on your car.

For RCU magazine they want videos. I can not use a video camera or regular camera where we would use the radar gun. Security on base won;t allow that.

So you tell me if you are interested.

I am doing some product reviews for my new sponsor BMI and publishing what I think of their products in RCU Magazine. I am also writing some other magazine companies to get the same articles published in them as well.

I'm sure that people will believe an RCCA article, so it sounds like you're giving another excuse. You could probably write the article yourself, but please have your English teacher check it before you submit it, since some of you grammar is honestly horrible, and I don't think you intended it that way.

So, were you by the dyno when your motor was being tested? If so, you could probably describe it to us, or give the guy who dynoed the motor a call to double-check. If it was dynoed at your LHS, then I'm sure that they'll know what type of testing equipment they own. Better yet, give us the name of your LHS, and one of us can do the calling for you.

I have a vidoe from yesterday of the 60mph run I did. I'll upload it for you guys.

Dstyles: Was that question for me? For a micro use soft rear foams, and whatever compound for the front that you want (depends were you drive it).

Gotta use Quicktime to play it. And I get an error near the end of the vid as well.

Did you see it till the car stopped? The internet just quit on me, so it didn't load all the way (I think).

for the microsecond that we could see it, it's hard to tell.
Looked like any other car with a mod motor.

I still think Team AJG stickers would be the best.

I just made another video of it hitting 60mph, then crashing. I'll post pics of the damage and the video later.
