First time I'm seeing the "angry" side of Julius. Hey Julius, I think he expects you to pick him up via business class.

Close in continental terms still means a 7 or 8 hour drive. Of course if I could get a lift that'd only be 1.5 hours

For me Heemstede is about 2 hours by car.
In theory that is. I always get slowed down because I have to run after my car with my transmitter and a backpack with fuel, starterbox and tools.

But next Saturday I'm going to a metal festival in my home town. (<--headbanging)

OK, am convinced ... will try the mod

That's good to know 'cos I don't really want to strip the car again so soon after rebuilding to change both shafts if they snap.

Crashed_1 has been using the front and main shaft too from 3 Racing and I have not heard any complains yet. Believe me if he complained, I would be the first to know !
I know. On the other hand, the guy is generous with kudos too.

Right!

OK, here's a suggestion, get yourself a 1/4 scale formula 1 car, sit in it and then chase your 710 all the way to MACH. Of course you'll need the skill to use two seperate controllers simultaneously to drive both cars but if you can headbang all weekend and still stand up at the same time then 2 controllers in a doddle!

More like 30 mins if Julius *really* do give you a lift on his wings (pun absolutely intended).

I didn't even get a chance to run the darned thing.
I installed the carrying handle in the alu mounts, and then went to tighten the small grubscrews... twist... strip...
The alum. has the strength of lightweight cheddar cheese.

This is what I found with the bumper brace, too. The two little alu posts which go into the foam bumper: I was putting the screws into them and tightening them up, when suddenly I felt the tension reduce as I was turning the screw - it had started to strip.
You're absolutely right about the alu being like chedder cheese

How's your engine coming along?

I haven't had a chance this week to do more engine break-in.
I will probably do it on the weekend.
I plan to put in my NovaMega pipe with new header, and give that a try.

Hey guys, don't make reference to parts being like cheese. Else the guys in the Holland factory would take that comment like it was meant for them !

Guys, Thanks for the help with the shocks...I went home and they are not even rebounding at all???? I have been sooo busy at work that I do not have time to re-build them (and probally will not for the next month ). But you guys say that they are good and that I must learn to build them correct, than I won't give up.

Also, InitialD...how are the RC tracks in Mordor, and can the Orcs drive good (I did not see anthing about that in the movie)

Brilliant!

One problem solved.

Now I'd just like to know how I can start my nitro-powered starterbox.
