Default Old?

Hey, who you callin' "old" ?


I am selling my S710 and spares, tires, etc. since I moved on to 1/8 scale last year... I got hooked!

I am negotiating the sale of my car package (hoping it works out), but I had lots of spares that I wouldn't be able to use... so they are up for sale!
I will be selling several pairs of Nitro Shoes tires, too.

But you think the longer servo saver works well?

Cheers, Mark.
The longer servo saver definately works well. Make sure to do it before the WinterNats. I'll try to look you at the track when you arrive.

See you guys there. Just need to get tires, since MonoTuning left the country.

Well, actually I remembered that you were getting into 1/8th so callin' you "old" is almost apt for 2 reasons :-

1- its 2004 since we last "saw" you anywhere whether its RC Tech, myTSN or 3Hobby. In a way that's good, shows that you've got a life!

2- the second reason is that as racers get older, their cars get bigger to help them see better!

I recommend titanium rear shaft, Al. mid shaft, front diff, one-way lock-set as a minimum.

If you want more stuff for performance then ti screws, light weight pulley adapters, new thicker rear anti-roll bars set, Al front roll-bar holders, new steering servo saver (different ackermann), ventilated brake discs, light weight clutch bell, orange clutch shoes and ceramic bearings including ceramic diff balls.

I'm still waiting for Hudy-steel like stuff for diff outdrives and dogbones but it seems that this is not hapenning.

There may be other things that people here might recommend but for me the above is more than good enough.

Hi Glen,

Would like to buy your car as rolling chassis with spareparts and tires. The e-mail direction I have for you, dont function anylonger.

The front roll center is in the stock location as well. I did not get a good picture of that but I did look at it.

Hi Claus,

Actually, I got your e-mail just fine.
I checked my profile and the e-mail address is still correct...

I am thinking about your offer, and will let you know soon...

Well, we're glad to see you around again just the same. Just let us know when you move on to 1/5th and then even old me will pretend not to know you.
