Default Re: Drivetrain

I do that too. I'm facinated how something so simple can go so fast and manuver like it does.

I also like to have my body clips going from outside to in, and all with the big loop pointing towards the back of the car. It urks me if someone puts my body on for me and puts my car down and doesn't have the clips just the way I like it.

I used to run burgundy as my main color. Then I switched to purple. As an homage to the old ways, I still mix in a few drops of burgundy into my purple when I prepare to paint. It doesn't seem to have any visual effect, but I know it's there!

I like to stick numbers dead center on the front windshield. The car will be out of balance if it's skewed one way or the other!

I just realized I'm the same way with the body clips and I always have my motors cut before I get to the track. I do still cut at the track though. I usually cut every run when I'm running mod. No matter what motor I'm using.

Does anyone else have to have their tools in place and put away after working on your car? I can't leave my work bench a mess. Drives me nuts.

Hehehe, I do that too, great init

Actually on that point, when up at uni I tend to have my out on display on my desk. Two of my mates always play with the suspension on the car whenever they come into my room to talk to me...they are completely fascinated at how it all works. I've been trying to convience them to come along and watch one day... might manage it next term, as we're going outside at my local track now

I have to admit I sometimes to the "meditation" thing, of just sitting there looking at the car....

And when at the track..... everything has to be perfectly laid out on my pit table!
Gearing bits and strapping tape on the left, tools on the right, cleaning and setup stuff up the top.
