You can connect the fan to a dyno, then the dyno can recharge your reciever pack whilst the car is running...you can then get 20 tanks before a recharge!!!! and have a cooler reciever pack to boot!!!!

ernest: where's the fan? I thought Manicore taught you to install one for glow-plug cooling.

Default newbie looking forward to learn

hey guys,

I got my first nitro car 2 weeks ago. Just finished all the assembly. Now I am looking forward to take it out to track and learn to handle it.
Earlier today, I went to Kai Tak to check out the place, I was a bit intimadated as everyone there looked sooo... well... serious.. kinda unfriendly. I was also surprised as to how small the track was.
Anyway, I really don't know much abour RC Car period. (The last time I touched one was over 10 years ago with my Kyosho Optima Mid Custom Special). Hope I can hang with some of you guys the next time you guys hit the track. (Any track)
Is that alright? Just PM me!
Thanks!!

ya, i felt the same as you when i first did RC...everyone seem so good and cocky and stuff..but it turned out that usually everyone is friendly! esp manticore, dtm, diva! you just get to know the ppl there! go around, talk to them, ask about setups and other problems, they are more than happy to help you!

ah, you go back to your old screen name, disaster999.

i also notice your signature has been changed too but the statment about RC12L3 is not really true. Asso 1/12 car is not actually really good but due to the parts wildly available, more people run this car instead. to my opinion, delta made very good 1/12 but too bad they have stopped to produce car kit now.

hehe..the only reason i said that is because i own the car, but i dont really like AE..so i GOTTA say that 12l3 is the only good car from AE! besides that..ya...my old signature is too corny...i cant think of a good one!
