Opphs... Crashed_1 would probably be elated to hear this ! I hear he's a big KO fan now.



Thank you.
I hope I could get this business venture to make enough money to stop working.
I'm hoping it does well enough to open my own track.

Besides, you never know that the 100 odd cars you own (including NTC3 and R40) are made in the good old China (whatever that means).
I'm not trying to bash, but HPI seems to be promoting the Savage more than the R40.
They had a full size version of the Savage (real truck) at RCX.
At their booth, they had like 3 Savages, and only 1 R40 on display.
My cousin is getting frustrated at HPI's lack of support as is thinking of buying a 710 or 950R off of me when I get my Serpent order.

I haven't seen any of the newer versions here in the states.
A new version might be out in places other than the US.
I'm just relaying what the Hudy guy told me.
The guy from Hudy told me that they're re-tooling the setup tool to fit more of the cars that are out.

I think you are right. US often get things late. Should be the fastest since r/c market is really big down there.

You guys don't play on Sunday

I wish we got things here faster and cheaper.
As for this Sunday, I'll still be at the RCX show.

mark you guys are luck to race on a cool track. We had a track like that in Houston, Texas, but the owner was a jerk so no one came. I am moving back to Houston and maybe in a year or so we will have another great tract design for 1/8 & 1/10 gas cars courtsey of me.

Default Setting throttle max travel.

I decided to set my max throttle travel, by watching the throttle slider inside the carb. I adjusted its position (holding the throttle trigger fully depresed) until the throttle slider was no longer visible whilst looking into the carb.

Does this method set the max travel accurately, i.e. give max possible throttle?

Cheers, Mark.

Nice! Did you use silver on both of them, or is the one on the left grey? Looks good.

The one on the right seems to have seen some action

The silver one is on my Tamiya EVO III - a test run for the new colour scheme
I found that silver is quite a heavy paint, though and so this timeI thought I would try white instead. It does indeed make a weight saving: the bigger 200mm body weighs two grams less than the silver painted 190mm - proportionally a very big weight saving

But I'm not too keen on the white and next time I'll probably try grey or paint the rear section sky blue, in keeping with the Dutch national colours.

Cheers, Mark.

Believe it or not , I put a parma on-road frt. bumper brace on and went full throttle into a parked car. I only shattered a frt. shock tower, everything else was fine.
