Yeah, I get so depressed and frustrated! I mean I didnt get into this hobby to get picked on and treated like a second class citizen... if i wanted that treatment, id rather enlist in the Army... Sometimes i wonder why i'm still in this hobby. compared to this, collecting hotwheels seemed more peaceful to me...

Thats just it! i've been in this hobby since 1994. And you would think by now i've gotten used to it. problem is, when the old bullies disappear, new bullies appear. and they are worse than the old ones... it's a vicious circle here...

He had the best motor among all the drivers. His TC3 could pass other Pro's TC3 at the straight. The straight at Tamiya track is not too long.

I agree he drives so well but he is very very rude and has no sportsmanship.

Other Japanese drivers are much more gentleman than US drivers. I respect them even they lose.

What do you think? Sanwa is a manufactuer and Airtronics is just an importer.

Well, American thinks inches and miles are better than mm and cm. OK, I need a 0.0657 inches graphite plate.

Totally agree right there! in fact I've ran with him at revelation when he tested the Nitro TC3, he get unset easily! ka ka

Also those Japanese drivers are so humble too! like Masami, when he won one race and he appreciated our applause! Now that's postive attitude!

Didn't Barry lose because he wiped himself out going into the striaght on the final round......certainly looked like it from the vids!!!!!!!!

Times like these i wish i was living in some other country...
We don't flame......we 'FRY'!!!!!!

Eyelets are easy to use but not as good as solder. The post screws eventually wear out and you strip the thread on the end housing..... 03 last a long time anyway...just change the brushes when you true the comm......or every other time you true the comm!!!!!
