Ehehehehe...ibig sabihin DALAWANG ST pala yung lilipat sa HPI...yung sinasabi ko kasi naka HPI na nung sabado.

Yung IFS...ehehehe...mali pala setup ko nung likuran. Nakita nila Tanta nung sabado. Ehehehe. Ewan ko lang kung ano handling nya this weekend after ko ma-ayos. Magaling lang talaga kayo ni don pedrito mag drive.

[QUOTE=neil4wd;3812254]Balita....hmmmm....

May isang Silvertuned (ST) dyan na nag defect na from Tamiya to HPI at naka-cyclone na rin kaso may konting "teething" problems pa na inaayos...may isang ST na lilipad rin ng HK in the coming weeks pero di pa sure kung saan magkakalat ng pera...may isang ST na mukhang lilipat IFS na din dahil naaliw...may isang ST na ADIK na tunay dahil nagaaya pa uli the following Sunday sa Speedzone...finally, may isang ST na absent last saturday at nag-"bonding" muna ata.

Game na Robo!!!

WOW PARANG THE BUZZ NICE RACING WITH YOU GUYS

Hi there! Gusto ko lang po magtanong at humingi opinion sa mga Onroad RC verterans. I'm planning to get a tamiya Subaru Impreza 2007 version. Is it a good onroad RC? Can it be converted into a rally car just incase I want to run it offroad?
Is there a better alternative onroad RC which is close to Tamiya Subaru's price?

tanta: ... also nice to see that micro rx in that car. looks to be a spread spectrum rx for KO radio systems.

vroom: im no tamiya expert but im guessing the Tamiya Subaru likely comes with a TT-01 chassis? If so, it should be a good platform to get you started in the hobby, specifically on-road. And yes almost any on-road kit can be converted to rally with some slight mods/parts. Also i think if your budget is in the tamiya TT-01 range, then there are very few other options for you in terms of price unless you are willing to try out 2nd hand kits which is also not a bad idea. A 2nd hand Tamiya TA-05 chassis whould give you more flexibility in terms of tuning etc and is generally a better perfromer than the TT-01 platform. just my thoughts but maybe one of the tamiya racers can come in here and give better insights as well. hope this helps ...

and check this out, i was browsing through lipo information and what makes it great, but heck it takes lots of care and watching as it really is sensitive.
see what the slightest overcharge or setting failure can do!

These are simulated videos of what overcharging can do.

just to qualify, exploding packs are not exclusive to LiPo. it can happen to any battery type when charge settings are not properly set. Just ask Rnold and Joji .... i remember when joji's nimh pack in his much more tire warmers blew up on his pit table disintegrating his tire warmers, and injuring a fellow racer with the flying debris .... si Marvi muntik na masapul sa mata. si Rnold naman nung nasa bahay nag cha-charge pumutok isang cell ng nimh niya. All batteries store enrergy, if you mess with it and dont take extra care, they will all explode.
