Are we ever going to see the end of these excuses ... OK, OK, here's the FORCE!

Is this black spring an optional one or is it used somewhere else? I thought mine only came with only one silver spring. Thanks.
... poking at me? OK, am guilty!

No, I did not see this black spring before. You sure its not part of something else? Centax perhaps?

Maybe it was a lawnmower, or Sow! With it being the left arm, it more than likely was broken at the AMCC.
Hello! Waving hands!

You broke that when you went through the fence ... shall I post a video of it as proof?

You strip everything after every drive? I find servicing the car like this very soothing too but not after every drive.

Errr, wanna come with me and Mark to the WinterNats? We could do with a mechanic!

Nothing wrong with enjoying it as part of the hobby. Your car must be real smooth and fast too.

950R? Well, I think its good but I don't own a 1/8th. I do know this ... blink on a track while driving a 1/8th car and you'll fly off. That's what happened when I tried my friend's car!

You looked like you had fun bashing around in the video. Driving skills ain't bad ... just place some cones or something and practise in an imaginary track and you'll be good.

Default Doppler effect

Hello.
Has any1 ever used Doppler effect to estimate top speed of the car?

I played with my video and it looks like my car was making 96km/h (its around 59 miles per hour). I dont know how accurate this is, it might be possible. Next time ill try to take it to the limit and drive straight on the full throttle.

Here You can find out how this work:

http://www.sprut.de/electronic/soft/vspec.htm

Sorry its in German. I dont know german but my friend did translate it for me.
